Impossible Creatures Cheats

Impossible Creatures is a real-time strategy game released in 2003 and developed by Relic Entertainment in conjunction with Microsoft Studios. Its unique feature is that the armies used are all created by the player. The armies consist of 9 creatures; each one is a combination of any two animals from a list of 76 (51 with no downloads). Many animals possess inherent abilities to add more strategic depth to the game. There is an extensive single-player campaign as well as online multiplayer functionality with different game modes, add-ons, custom maps, mods, and scenarios.
Cheat codes, console commands, secrets:
Press [~] while playing, then type any of the following codes:
cheat_coal(9999) - Add Coal
cheat_electricity(9999) - Add Electricity
cheat_buildings - Add Buildings

I got these cheats by looking through the Impossible Creatures files
using Find all files including "cheat." and opening those files with
a txt editor looking for anything that looks like a cheat next to that
string. This should work for other games too.

cheat_killself - Blowup all that you have
cheat_buildings - No building restrictions
cheat_rank - ??? (Likely a campaign cheat)
cheat_coal(#) - Gain # coal
cheat electricity(#) - Gain # electricity.
