Reveal Entire Map
To reveal the full map you need to exit the game and edit one of the files in the game’s directory. It’s therefore best that you make a copy of this file, just to be safe.
The file you need to edit is config.ini, which is located in the game directory. This can usually be found in My Documents\My Games\Sid Meier’s Civilization 5.
Having made a backup copy of this file, you then need to right click and ‘Edit’ the file. Replace the “DebugPanel = 0″ line with “DebugPanel = 1″ and save the file.
Start up a new game and press “~“ during gameplay to bring up the Debug panel.
Select “Reveal All” to show the entire map.
