How many disasters are in SimCity 4? What are the origines and the solutions?
I know only:

Fire disaster (Origine: god mode, game. Solution: firefighters)
Pipe disaster (Origine: the pipe explodes if you give few money. Solution: delete and replace a new pipe line)
And the god mode disasters.

Other disasters?  I want to know them all

The only other one I can think of is the toxic spill, If you crash or derail a freight train you get a spill of toxic chemicals, I think there needs to be a tank car (white one in pic) for it to work.

I just remembered another disaster, nuclear meltdown, it can be random or triggered by a fire or low funding and causes a fifteen to thirty (I think) tile explosion and contamination of those tiles that takes decades to clear.

You are welcome to try bulldozing my Antimatter Power Plant if you like.  It contaminates a large tile for 5000 years.

Well theres the Meteor,i always liked that one .
Oh & don't forget about the Volcano.

Solution: a lot of rebuilding,possibly fire fighters to handle the fires.
Oh & re-terraforming the land.

My question is: the polices car, in the disaster menu, can be used for a disaster?

On youtube i've saw a video of a nuclear power plant that have destroyed a city for an explosion. wow o.O

Suddenly cut funding to something like a hosital or school and they will go on strike. If there is no police coverage in the area it can become a riot.

You can cluster your police stations very close to each other to make an extremely oppressive environment.

Check out the Disease Research Center Mod, a simple essential! For the Advanced Research Center, too!

Is there a way to see your civic vehicles respond to random disasters? (without having to dispatch them yourself)

Volcano and meteors aren't really disasters because they don't happen without triggering them, such as the earthquake.
Some years ago, I saw a CJ picture that showed a flooding of fields, as a matter of fact, it was the whole valley that had a couple of feet of water. Is that in the game or just made to look as? I wonder, does anyone know?
I can think of airplanes crashing as another disaster, really doesn't happen often though.

Blueball, these floods were probably created by Teirusus rain tool, what can raise water level without destroying buildings, and also can be used to create land bridges, or by some other tool.

I remember that if you have a missile launcher and the missile  fails, the debris will land on nearby buildings catching them on fire.

In fact, when the missile part, has a wrong route, and rarely goes to the sky without doing damage.


I have tried to cut founds at schools, hospitals, but there wasn't a riot.

I've never actually been victim to a miss with the missiles like that.

I find it silly how you can accidentally crash into the skyscrapers of your city when you are in air missions without anything happening to the building or the aircraft. It's probably good that way, though, because otherwise it would be an M rated game.

As far as I know all the default disasters and whatnot are outlined in the SimCity 4 Deluxe Prima Guide. It's an awesome piece of work that details EVERYTHING in the vanilla game, the people at Maxis were helping the Prima guys develop it! I am wondering if there are any disaster mods or new disasters, though.

there was this one thing with the police that you could do also, you could block traffic if there is a fire, or something going on in an area near a disaster..
i found it useless, but it added a touch of realism because as the disaster happened, it made people find another way to get tho their places.

you can also make the police go to specific areas (if you check the crime map, if an area says arson, you send them there before there is a fire and you wont have to send in firefighters. Also, for any crime, you mostly can send them there and that crime spot will usually go down in violence (red->yellow->virtually none)
