4. Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (Win 10) Custom game

First, we will get 3 quick achievements out of the way.

Start up a Single player Custom game with the following settings:

Match type: Random
Map type: Random

Empires and other settings don't matter.

Once the match starts, press ENTER, type " home run " and press ENTER again to win the match. This will earn you these two achievements:

Load up a Single player, Custom game, with the following settings:
Map type: Inland
Map size: Tiny
Reveal map: Normal

All the other settings don't really matter. Then once the match starts, press ENTER, type " bigdaddy " and press ENTER again to spawn a race car. Simply move this car around the map to reveal all of it, which will take less than a minute. This will unlock the achievement for you.

Reveal map: All visible

Population limit: 250

Starting age: Post-Iron age (for most of them)

Victory type: Standard
Difficulty level: Easy
Speed: Normal
Game mode: Definitive edition

Then make sure that at least these 2 boxes are checked/ticked: Allow cheats and Full Tech Tree.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It does not matter versus what empire you are playing, but for yourself, you will have to go through some of them depending on what achievements you are going for.

Once every game starts press ENTER, type " steroids " and press ENTER again to make buildings go up instantly and to make troops be trained instantly as well. Always start off with building about 20 houses or so, so you can house enough troops/villagers. The fastest way to do this is select a villager, press Q (hotkey) to get a house ready and then just click where you want to build it. You will also work towards this achievement:

Homes?

Build 500 houses

In case you run out of resources, these cheats will help out. In case you still need quite some progress towards a certain achievement it might be worth setting up a new custom game rather than putting in the cheat code again and again:
woodstock: Instantly gives 1000 wood.
pepperoni pizza: Instantly gives 1000 food.
coinage: Instantly gives 1000 gold.
quarry: Instantly gives 1000 stone.

(I've left out some of them which are easier to do in a custom scenario campaign, convert units for 3 achievements, kill a lion (alpha) and raze 200 temples)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Best way to go for the Shang wall segments and the 50 Babylonians towers is to train some extra villagers at the town center, and then order all of them to start building. Then select one villager and start adding extra wall segments/towers.

For the train X amount of troops achievements, place the Barracks/Archery range/academy/Siege workshop somewhere in the open. This will mean that you can train more units before you have to remove units. Hold the SHIFT button and keep clicking the unit you want to train (or press the Hotkey). Once it says that there is not enough room to build more units, double-click (left mouse) on one of the units, and hold the DELETE button on your keyboard until all of them are deleted. Then start training units again. Also, make sure that the steroids cheat is always activated at the start of a new match.

Note: as long as you don't have the Not that I'm keeping count achievement, you might want to send units created over to the enemy's base rather than deleting them, so they can destroy enemies.

Not that I'm keeping count…

Defeat 1000 enemy units

Once you run out of resources or have your achievement(s), press ENTER, type " home run " and press ENTER again to win the match.
