Cheats are methods to break the rules of a game. It's up to each individual person whether they want to use cheats or not.



Roads not breaking down due to low tax level

SimCity snapshot of roads with electrical lines not breaking down.

  • No maintenance on railroads - Normally, railroads will deteriorate unless transport has 100% funding. However, railroads with electrical lines over them won't. Put electrical lines over all the railroads and set transport funding to 0%.


  • 999,999 simoleons - First spend all your money. Put the game on the fastest setting and wait for the tax grid to appear. As soon as the screen turns black, hold L + R. While holding these buttons, change all settings to 0% and exit the screen (don't release the buttons yet). While still holding these buttons, use the menu to return to the tax screen. Raise all settings to 100% except for the tax rate. Set that to 20%. Exit the tax screen and the menu, then release L and R (be sure that your money is negative).

Congratulations! You now have §999,999. You might want to lower the tax rate now. Give those SimCitizens a break!
