I know the cheat code to have unlimited money on The Sims. Does anyone know the cheat code for unlimited money on Sim City 3000?

I know you didn’t ask for them all but I might as well give them to you to preclude a bazillion threads that say “What is the cheat code for <blank>”

To use a cheat code, press the [Ctrl], [Shift], [Alt] and [C] keys at the same time. This will bring up a cheat window for you to type a code.

Add every building to the landmarks window:

*Open the power plant window, and then close it with the X button in the top right hand corner.

*Now open the Rewards and opportunities window, and then close it with the X.

*Now open the Garbage disposal window, and close it with the X.

*And Finally, open the Landmarks window and you’ll have every building in the game.

Gives all the reward buildings cheat:

While playing press ctrl-alt-shift-c and a dialog box should appear. type in ‘pay tribute to your king’ and it should give you all the reward buildings. note: sometimes this code doesn’t work if you have a lot of reward buildings already placed.

Simon Says

EFFECT: The following codes cause the Newsticker to display something unusual.


SimCity 2000 music
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the “audio.ini” file in the “/game/res/sound” sub-directory in the game directory. Locate the “SimCity 200 Theme” line in the file. Change the numbers that follow that entry from “0,0,0,1” to “0,1,0,1”. The music from SimCity 2000 will now accessible during the game from the preferences screen.

Hint: Import unlimited money
Note: SimCity 2000 is required for this trick. Create a city within SimCity 2000 using the “More money” cheat in that game. After accumulating enough money, save and exit the game. Start SimCity 3000, click “Load City” and load the recently created SimCity 2000 city. You will have the desired terrain with the money.

Thanks so much. I have a ten year old son with Cerebral Palsy and he enjoys playing The Sims. I bought Sim City for him yesterday, but it is harder for him so I thought some cheats might help. I also bought the Sim’s Amusement Park game. Are there any cheats for that?

Maxis actually released two of these games. There’s the one that just came out – SimCoaster. Then, there’s the one that was released a couple years ago – Sim Theme Park.

The money cheat for both of these games involves the same procedure, which can be a bit of a pickle, so perform this cheat with special care.

Enter the installation directory (i.e. c:\program files\simcoaster). Once you’re in there, go into the data folder, then into the levels folder. In the levels folder, you’ll see a file named standard.sam.

You’re going to be editing this file, but before you do that, I recommend copying it over to a temp directory, just in case you mess up, and you need the original file back.

Now, with this standard.sam file, right-click on it (I’m assuming you’re using a PC), go to Open With, then click Choose Program. From the list of programs, select Notepad.

Once the file is open, you’ll see a line that says BankAccountInfo.InitialCash 50000. The only thing you want to do to it is edit the 50000. You can erase that, and put whatever number you want in there.

Of course, what ever number you enter there is going to be the amount of money you receive when you start the game. Have fun.
