About This File

This mod may not be compatible with the "All 3 CityHalls Modd Reward fix". This plugin is intended to supersede that file's behavior.

This is a DLL for SimCity 4 that makes the City Hall reward upgradeable. Instead of implementing the three City Hall stages as separate reward lots, this mod implements Maxis' originally intended behavior of actually replacing the City Hall lot as new stages are unlocked. It also prompts the user with advisor messages asking if they want to upgrade the reward, just like the airport upgrade behavior.

This mod is part of my effort to deconstruct the internal game interfaces. The development thread can be found at this link. Source code is over here.

Behavior
The user is prompted monthly to upgrade to stage 2 when the city's population reaches 45,000, and to upgrade to stage 3 at 95,000. The mod also adds a cheat code, "UpgradeCityHall," that forces the upgrade prompt to appear regardless of population.

Installation
Unzip to My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins.

Compatibility
Tested and working on 1.1.641.0 (Steam/GOG/Origin) on Windows. Also works in combination with SC4Fix and the Extra Cheats DLL. Untested but should work with any version of SimCity 4 Deluxe or SimCity 4 w/ Rush Hour.

Mac and Linux users: this mod is untested on those platforms but my understanding is that SimCity 4 for Mac and Linux is essentially a Wine wrapper. Compatibility is not guaranteed, but it's worth a shot. If you're playing on Aspyr's PowerPC version of SimCity 4 this mod will definitely not work, but if you're using that version of SC4 you probably have other issues to deal with.


What's New in Version 1.0.0


Released

Replaced the debug version of the DLL with a release version.

Finally, after 2 official patch and 1 Expansion,
we can achieve a new reward that was missing us.

Gone for weeks and back with this! Impressive, and I look forward to any other DLL developments you may discover.
