About This File

The SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin

Overview:

The SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin was originally an internal SimCity 4 file, used by Maxis during the development phase to test the game before its release to the public. However, in the years following the release of the game, Buggi, a prominent modder resident here at Simtropolis, contacted Maxis and was given permission to release this file to the public.

The extra cheats plugin adds many additional features to the game, such as the ability to plop any building or lot at will, the ability to easily set how much money is in your city's treasury and even the ability to add snow to your terrains, as well as many other additional functions.

However, it should be kept in mind that this file was originally never intended to be released to the public. It was built for testing purposes only. As a result, it should be treated with caution. Using this file incorrectly can lead to game instability and even crashes. No guarantees or comprehensive user guides can be provided with this file, if you choose to use it, you must do so at your own risk.

How to use this file in the game:

After you install (see below), enter a city and press the key combination [CTRL] + [x] to open the cheat box. Right click anywhere within the cheat box, you will see a drop down list appear. You can now select a cheat from the list by clicking on it. After you have selected a cheat, press enter to confirm your selection.

Below is a list of all known cheat codes enabled by this file (as well as the standard game cheats) and a description of their effects. As the effects of some cheats are unknown, not all cheats have available descriptions.

UPDATE:

To fill in some unknowns Maxis has given me the details on a few of the missing descriptions.

 

Barstuck - Once invoked, all of your small commercial services (low-density 1x3 lots) start turning into coffee bars, and then they stay that way forever.
 
WatchMeMove - Enables animation stepping. After it is enabled, control-shift-alt-F11 and control-shift-alt-P implement animation stepping and pausing, respectively.
 
GP <on | off> - Enables or disables game pause when you switch to another application. This is useful for if you go away from the game and you want it to sleep while it is in the background. 
 
Flora (on | off) | (preserve on | off) | (propogation on | off) | (blast <splat_count> <per_splat_count> <splat radius>)
 
Controls flora simulation parameters. By default, during city play flora simulation is on, preservation is off, and propogation is off. Preservation refers to the keeping of trees on land when the land is developed. Propogation refers to the spreading of seeds and automatic creation of new flora life in the city.
 
Example(s)
Flora on
Flora preserve off
Flora propogation on
Flora blast 5 8 60

 

Installation Instructions:

Extract the file SimCity 4 Extra Cheats Plugin.dll to the root directory of your plugins folder. This means put the file in C:\...\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins. DO NOT put the file into a sub-folder, it will only work if placed into the main directory. Then enter your game and follow the instructions above.

I've been using the cheat menu for years.

I can tell you now, mineputsirsk's review is wrong. It works great. He/she must have installed it wrong and before troubleshooting, took immediately to a negative review.

Anyone else who uses this cheat menu would give it 5-stars, easily. It's the most helpful menu there is!

Open the cheat menu, then right-click on the box and voila!, every cheat in the game is listed for you to choose from.

Never had a problem installing it or using it. Totally worth downloading and using!

This worked great for me.  As mentioned previously, make sure this file is at the very top of your plugins folder.  Otherwise, it won't work.  Great work, Buggi! :)

This thing is essential. GET IT.

As you may have known, we have been using this for years, and it never fails to deliver, whether it be a money cheat, a time cheat or even testing them all out (not recommended), this is for everyone.

      I made an entire small (1x1) area city of all BuildingPlop cheat plopped Commercial, Residential, and Industrial zones but after about only a few seconds, all the buildings, every single one of them went abandoned "Due to lack of water", except the entire city has water! It has power, water, road access, garbage removal, police, fire, schools, everything. All building plopped with the BuildingPlop cheat becomes abandoned due to lack of water, when nothing could be further from the truth.
      Does anybody know what the problem could be?

      As everyone knows, there are TWO God's Mod. One before founding a city and another after. Sometimes you start a city and realize that you forgot to plant an enormous amount of trees. On the first God's Mod, trees are free, on the other one they will cost you a packet. Many other examples come to mind, with the terrain leveler, for instance.
      Here is a solution : once in the founded city, choose Ctrl+Alt+Shift and click on the God's Mod. And presto, you got the first God's Mod !
      How many people knew this trick ? Hoping I'm not deluding myself.

      I cannot get the SimDate cheat to work, no matter how I type it in, the date does not change. I tried putting in today's actual date after starting a new city, but it remained 2000.
      I tried typing it in as "04/18/2017" "<04/18/2017>" and  "April 18, 2017"
       
      Perhaps I am not formatting the date after the cheat properly.
       
      How do I type in the date after the SimDate cheat?

      I've been trying activating the "TerrainQuery" cheat, as it is supposed to show the cursor coordinate information. (I'm hoping it's not just a X and Y info.)
      But no matter how I put on, [on], or any other variation I come out null.

      Does anyone run the game on Windows 10?  New player here went a little over zealous and started the Omega Factory soon.  Had to import oil and ore and now I'm out of funds.  I thought I downloaded the cheat DLL plug in.  But whenever I open the box on the game none of the commands work Moolah, Weaknesspays none of them work.  I type help and it gives me a list of basic commands that aren't really cheat codes or anything.  Can anyone help me out here.  I deleted the DLL Plug In from this website but it seems everyone uses Vista does that mean this Plug In will not work on Windows 10.  If anyone can help please note I'm a novice at computers so if you can dumb down your explanation would help too lol.

    • In nature, the complex of dance begins with single cells, tropisms, although independently motivated according to the nucleus responding to gravity, tides and light, but gradually all evolution can be seen as a dance of chemicals and forms.  The more complex the dance, the more complex the life-form.   When I watch male and female figure skaters I am stunned by the extreme complexity of coordination of physical, sensory, cognitive and pure ability of flight that my species is capable of.    Dare I say, I am honored to be human.   All our technology and art are just toys compared to the actual material ability of ourselves as conscious physical beings.  As well, in the sciences, male and female have unique cognitive and perceptual abilities that are complimentary and mutually facilitative.  There's no limit to what can be achieved by human beings who know how to dance.
    • The water texture is designed to show dynamic flow, a churning of the water as if an industrial process is taking place.   Its supposed to be clean fresh water, so it would appear more saturated blue with whitecaps.  The texture and saturation also helps to distinguish it as clearly water and matches the tone and texture of the surrounding buildings.   In my texture pack I designed 4 different water textures for different applications of light. Go ahead and feel free to suggest another one, or one you can imagine that might fit better.  Thanks for the feedback.
    • I love, love, LOVE seeing Louisiana BATS in the game. Hope you'll come back soon and upload some more.
    • Well, yes ... but also ... ... a map. Depends on the network layout? But no - these are two different maps. That's like two different planets. They'll have to dance alone. Did you ever notice there is a sexual practice - since the beginning - that transcends already gender difference - a very common sexual practice you can't call it rather heterosexual  nor homosexual? You can do it too. Everyday. And so - overcome sociocultural dichotomy not only in theory but with your own hands.
