I turned Orbitalcommand on for a few turns while testing a scenario.
I hoped that running it a second time would turn it off, but no.
Restarted OOB, it was still on (cached?).

Restarted PC.
Now it is acting really weird, it looks like some heavy FOW is on for close-by enemy units while those outside visible range is displayed.
No, I have not been smoking my socks :D

I have seen Orbitalcommand do some strange things when used. won't turn off, FOW gets crazy, others I can't remember as I try not to use it much.

IIRC, when they first put out the cheats, there was a mention of Orbitalcommand possibly doing some odd things to the game play.
Then again, I might just be smoking my socks...could have just been a brain fart.

An OOB veteran once told me that if we switch #orbitalcommand on, it means the AI units will have THEIR fog of war removed as well, meaning they'll be able to see exactly where we are at all times.
The cheat is very useful when scenario building because it allows us to see if the AI are behaving properly, but I'd never, ever, use it during actual gameplay or I'd feel like I was- well- cheating..:)

PS- the cheat can't be switched off as far as I know except by exiting the game and starting again, haha serves you cheaters right..:)
