Cheat: Sewage (Single Player Only) 1.3

   (14 Reviews)

5 Screenshots

About This File

The sewage cheat is comprehensive and requires both the base game and EP1 (Cities of Tomorrow). You may experience issues if you have also installed other mods that affect any aspect of sewage, including the sewage sanitizer.

 

All of the cheats reduce resource requirements while greatly increasing desired output. Usable only in single player mode.

 

The package file modifies the following instances, and for that reason, may prove incompatible with other mods that do the same:

 

Modified instances: (see screenshot for SimCityPak).

 

Sewage Outflow Pipe

Sewage Treatment Plant

Sewage Sanitizer

Sanitizer Tank

Sewage Treatment Tank

 

 

What this mod does:

  • Number of workers required to start operating set to 1.
  • Jobs tweaked slightly upward in some cases.
  • No plop or maintenance cost.
  • Power and water requirements for all parts of the sewage treatment plant and sanitizer greatly reduced.
  • For the sanitizer, controlnet reduced to 1 controlnet per sanitizer tank plopped (probably will never need more than 1 tank).
  • Increased the amount of sewage treated to approximately 1,500 kgal/hour for the treatment plant (lists as 200).
  • Increased the amount of sewage treated to approximately 4,500 kgal/hour for the treatment plant (list as 600).
  • Ground pollution on the outflow pipe reduced to 0.

 

Note:  I set the amount of the water pumped equal to the amount of sewage treated, but there is a percentage factor that reduces water pumped slightly, and I did not change this percentage. It's still far higher than normal.

 

 

To use:

Place all files in SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages.  If you already have the script files, you don't need to put them in there again, just the included package file.

If you start a new region, what I find I must do is start the region, save it, quit the game, and then re-start for any mods to work the first time, even other people's mods that I've downloaded here.

If you use this file, delete and replop any existing sewage treatment plants or sanitizers. Same holds true if you remove the file.

What's New in Version 1.3


Released

  • 1.0 Initial Upload
  • 1.1 I had to get more aggressive with how I was flooding the water table for how much industry was using. Use 1.1 of my water mod with 1.1 of my sewage mod, and the water table will flood fairly quickly (you can start to see a positive difference in approximately 10 minutes), especially if they're plopped next to each other. I recommend just 1 tank and 1 filter for the water plant, and 1 filter tank for the treatment plant. Also changed the module count to 15, but 1 is plenty. Destroy your existing sewage plant first. When replopping, I noticed that I had to be sure that I added at least 1 filter tank.
  • 1.2 Fixed an issue with the sewage sanitizer tank not pumping water. You do not need to destroy/replop existing sewage sanitizers (if you were using version 1.1). For now, I have restored the default amount of water pumped. The controlnet, garbage, and power required to run the sewage sanitizer are all still reduced.
  • 1.3 Fixed an issue where after plopping the sewage treatment plant, you had to turn around and plop at least one sewage treatment tank. A sewage treatment tank now comes with the plant again. No other changes.

You're welcome and yes I have more,  I have water, fire department, hospital, wind power, and clinic mods. I just need to document what they do and post them.  The air scrubber is sorted in the game under Waste but it's in my Water mod (because I was cleaning up water at the time with it) but there's an air scrubber as well. I've also controlnet facility and signal booster mods.

Nice cheat mod :)

In many of these mods you modders say OFFLINE ONLY or single player only, but if you have a friend that uses the exact same Mods as, let say i do

can i play online with only that friend or will the Mods cause rollbacks....

Nice mod anyways 5/5 for sure!

The rollbacks occur regardless of the number of people playing in an online region or who has what mod.  If an online region is outside of the game's expectations for growth / capacity for the age/population of the region, it gets rolled back. 

 

An extreme but obvious example would be if you and your friend both had a mod that let you both have a city with a population of 2 with 3,000,000 simoleons and the cities were only 2 minutes old, the city will get rolled back.  The game isn't looking at the mods themselves, but whether a given city continues to fit within expectations.  Most mods exceed those expectations somewhere (mine certainly do), so yes, the cities would get rolled back regardless.

Ok.

Thank you for the info anyways....

I have been unable to identify which property governs the radius of the ground scrubber.  I spent hours yesterday and earlier in the month experimenting, nothing affected it.

Many thanks for your mods!
They are great to save money in the game (not counting other improvements).
Q: Can I use this mod with your mod cheat Water?
They seem to overlap?

Specifically, both correct and improve Sewage Treatment plant.

I have not compared them in the unzipping form. If there are individual packets, it is easy - do not install this mod one that intersects with others.

Anyway, Thank you for all your free modes! They allow to set in the city of more than one and 2-4 building police, hospitals and fire stations (for example, one building in the center, and the rest at the city limits to the coverage was more). You can even install all modules to avoid oversaturation of road service cars, but putting them in different parts of the city will be more coverage area, if I'm not mistaken. Thanks again!

P.S. Sorry for my English. Is not my native language.

Actually, it's best if you use the water and sewage mod together to get the best effect for filling the water table, and place them next to each other.  You can even do it on land will not a lot of water.  Water won't grow necessary beneath them, but if you look at the water map over time, it will fill in gradually. Do not add more than one or two water filters.

Hello,

First off, I would like to thank you for taking your time to create much needed mods for SimCity. The game would be very different had not modders be creative.

Currently I am running SimCity 2013 : Complete Edition v10.3.0.0 on an Intel i7-3770 with 16GB RAM. I have followed every installation instruction for the latest of your sewage and water mods. They are the only mods in SimCity. I also have done the steps needed for the mods to work when playing in offline mode. These are the only mods I have placed in the "\SimCity\SimCityUserData\Packages".

The following, unfortunately, do not work as shown in your screenshots :-

  • Water tables replenish only for the first plopped water pump in one city in one region only.
  • Sewage Sanitizer is running at the stock capacity.

Good news is that the other aspects to your mods work as expected (such as free to build or maintain them, sewage treatment plant has a much higher capacity than stock) .

Thank you once again!
