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.
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.
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.
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
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.
