Cars fall into water

Level land near a bridge and cause the bridge to disappear. All the cars will stop and drop into the water with a big splash.

First car

When your Sim is going to his or her house when you first make him or her, they will ride in a cheap blue sedan. This is the very first car on your Sim's car menu.

Drive a red Lamborghini Countach

As you enter your city make sure you build high residential zones and ensure that there is a lot of space for your Sims. Wait about a month or two. Go into Sim mode and choose a Sim. As you decide what house you want to move him or her into, make sure the wealth is at all 3 §§§ rather than § or §§. When in Sim mode, click on the little car out of your three choices. Then, click on "My Sim's Car". At the top should be three different selections of cars. The § means low wealth, §§ means medium wealth, and §§§ means high wealth. Click on the high wealth §§§. On the list, look for a red car labeled as "Exotic Red Sports car". This is the fastest road car you can drive that a Sim can own, the Lamborghini Countach.

Control one-way roads

You can actually add traffic lights and stop signs to these blocks. Remarkably the cars will follow the rules.

Stop signs

Convert a one-way road into a street. In the first street square, drag out another one-way road or a street so that they intersect. After the intersection, change the street back into a one-way road. This one does not work for two-way roads.

Traffic lights

This will work for roads. For this to work though, you must install the Network Add-on mod (NAM). You can then drag out a one-way road and change it into a road with no intersection. Keep the one-way road a road for just one square and drag a road to cross the one way road's single road section. For lights to be facing the correct ways, you can use the BAT (Building Architect Tool), the Plug-in Manager, and the Lot Editor to create intersections. However, you must also get the SC4 tool. Note: These tricks do not prevent cars from turning the wrong way.

Command And Conquer series reference

At times, a factory in your industrial sector will be named "Kanes Tiberium", a likely reference to the Command And Conquer series.

The Sims reference

When you choose the "Giant Robot Attack" disaster, you will see that other than its eye, it is virtually the same as the robot servant from The Sims "Servo".


Money from Neighbor Deals

When you make a city, connect it to at least two cities; one with water or some other major resource and another that needs it (water works best). Do not have that resource in your city or the glitch will not work (for example, water pump, power plant, etc.). Make the connection to these two cities using your city and go to "Neighbor Deals". Under the deals, select the resource to buy, then the other city to sell to. Then, cancel the buy, but not the sale. Follow this exactly. Select the pull down menu and reselect the resource you are selling to the other city. If done correctly, the dollar amount should significantly increase. You can now reselect the resource to buy. After a few months, the game will reset the dollar amount but you can do glitch again. When using water, it is possible to get all the way to 1,000,000,000 Simoleons. Note: If you play the other cities, make sure you check on the Neighbor Deals. You do not want to bankrupt the cities. (Screenshot)

God terraforming tools after city construction

To have terraforming tools after you found the city, press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Shift] when in another mode besides God mode. While holding those keys, click on the "God mode" button. All of the terraforming tools are now there. You must do this every time you want to have all the tools.


Do not build a cemetery. Move in your Sim. When your Sim is at home, go to "Disasters", then "Lightning". Select "Sim Mode" once. HIT your Sim's house with lightning. When hisor her house explodes, look closely. You should see a ghost float up. A few seconds later a hearse will drive by,even without a cemetery.
