Cheat code sheet #0061
Updated: 6/2/01 OS/platforms(s): Windows and Macintosh Versions: All

Contributor/author(s): Utopia, Wren Weburg, Natalie Gravelle, Maxis

Before you proceed
Please know that these cheats aren't supported by SC3000.COM. Use them at your own risk. If a cheat blows up your computer, or you can't get a cheat to work, all bets are off. Tough cookies.

Also, SC3000.COM does not believe that cheats should be used in place of knowledge. If your city is struggling for money, you should play the game until you learn how to make money. Cheating is a poor substitute for learning the game!

How to enter codes
After loading a city, press

  • For Windows
    Ctrl + Shift + Alt + C
  • For Macintosh
    Cmd + Option + Shift + C
A dialog box pops up in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. Enter the code in this box and press Enter. It helps if the simulator isn't paused when you do this.

Code Description / more info
i am weak All buildings, zones, utilities, infrastructure, trees, and water are free.
i love red tape All ordinances become available. Unknown side-effects (not verified): City hall description becomes "Miles and Miles of Red Tape".
call cousin Vinnie After typing this code, you will see a Local Fundraising Event appear in the Meet window. He'll offer you some cash, and if you accept the deal, he'll give you a large wad of cash. You can only use this code once.
zyxwvu Type in this code after rejecting the Local Fundraising deal obtained by typing "call cousin Vinnie". You will be rewarded with the SimCity Castle, which will appear in the Rewards window. The castle will boost land value and increase aura. Plus, it sure beats the mayor's house (provided your ego can fit into it).

For information on what the castle's query stats mean, see Knowledge Tree article #0342.
