This "Civilization 6 trick works only in the offline mode. There are also other cheats that can be unlocked and MrAntiFun has laid down the instructions clearly. Quevik has also showed how to disable walls and city defenses. Players need to go to the Steam directory and search for the file names "Buildings" and "Civics."

Backups should be created before going ahead with any changes in the game's code. After opening the file "Buildings," "Civilization 6" players should look out for the OuterDefenseHitPoints="50" OuterDefenseStrength="2" code, which is available in three places. Next they should change the values "50" and "2" to "0" in all three and then save the file.

In case of "Civics," players need to change the DefenseValue from 200 to 0. Once these steps have been applied, the "Civilization 6" game's city and wall defenses get nullified. Moreover, a 20 percent increase in production allows both AI and players to build more stuff.
