To access the Spore cheat console while playing the game, you will want to hold CTRL and SHIFT on your keyboard and then press C.
To select both, click the first one, then hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and click on the second one.
Note: To activate the cheats, you must load up a game and press Ctrl -X to display the console window.
While playing, press CTRL + ALT + ~ to drop the "console" where you can enter these cheat codes.
When buying a quantity of items at a shop, use the CTRL key and click on the item you want.
Then, when you exit the game, open your paint program and hit Ctrl + V to paste the image.
After creating your city, hold Ctrl + Alt + Shift and then click the God Mode button.
Simply hold CTRL and SHIFT on your keyboard and then hit the C key.
