Cheat: Fusion Power Plant (Single Player Only) 1.3

   (13 Reviews)

4 Screenshots

About This File

The fusion power plant cheat is comprehensive and requires EP1 (Cities of Tomorrow). You may experience issues if you have also installed other mods that affect any aspect of the fusion power plant.

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).


Advanced Fusion Reactor

Fusion Reactor Level

Fusion Power Plant

Standard Fusion Reactor




What this mod does:

  • No plop or maintenance cost
  • Water requirements greatly reduced (from 38,000 to 38).
  • Garbage requirements zeroed out.
  • Controlnet set to a requirement of 1 for each component (for a maximum of 4).
  • Amount of power needed to jump-start the plant set to 1 watt.
  • Power plant output is at default levels


Not affected:

  • Wave fusion power plant




You will experience the normal duration (~ 30 seconds) for your city to recover from charging the plant, despite power jump-start requirement being only 1 watt, with the surrounding buildings losing power, etc.

You will also still experience the plant's negative effects on desirability in the area.



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 fusion power plants. Same holds true if you remove the file.


What's New 1.3


  • 1.0 Initial Upload
  • 1.01 The advertised and actual output amounts of the standard fusion reactor now match (1.5 gigawatts).
  • 1.1 Re-did the power distribution, returning to the default power levels / settings in a bid to stabilize the power output. I left intact the ability to crank up the fusion power plant with just a single watt of power from another facility, as well as reduced water, garbage, and controlnet.
  • 1.2 Wow. You can now populate, prior to cranking up the power plant, 3 advanced fusion reactors. Was able to power them up with just 1.1 megawatts to spare from a solar plant (see screenshots). Starting the plant now is VERY fast. The "i'm cranking up" progress bar doesn't even have time to populate before you're up and running. Power output unchanged. You'll have a moment when the town shows buildings without power, as with the default fusion plant, but does not last as long as previously. I also watched the power production for a while, no fluctuations.
  • 1.3 Removed properties relating to the Elite MegaTower Fusion Level, which has absolutely nothing to do with the Fusion Power Plant. No other changes.

      SM2 Trash and Burn.
      A massive garbage handling facility but also a power generating station. (waste to energy)
      Here the trash is incinerated and the heath generated by the furnaces is used to create steam which in turn runs in to a turbine generator thus creating energy.
      Lot size 10X6
      Handling capacity 50,000 tons per month.
      Power generated at peak 6,500
      Plop cost 7500
      Power used 8
      Water used 60
      Note - It can be used stand alone or in conjunction with SM2 Trash Dumper. The base textures are a match. If you wish to do so then refer to the picture included in this zip.

      So I am having this weird power issue and I couldn't find anything describing this out there.  This particular city tile had one Natural Gas Power Plant and 4 or 5 Wind Plants (both were the Maxis versions).  I also have an ordnance mod installed that gave me the option to run an entire city off just one windmill plant and provide enough water through one water pump.  Despite all these plants I can't keep anything in the city powered and it seems the reason is because my power budget is constantly set to near zero dollars.  I'll raise it all the way up, everything will be powered and then after a month or two running the simulation the power budget resets back to zero and everything goes dark again.
      I recently just deleted all the power plants and turned off the ordnance mod and ran the simulation to see if that helped and I am still getting the auto reset every time I press play.  I'm not sure what else to do.  The entire city is abandoned now.

      Thanks for any help you may have.

      1) SM2 Power Transformer 1 - 2x2 lot - 1000 Output

      2) SM2 Power Transformer 2 - 2x4 lot - 1500 output

      3) SM2 Power Transformer 3 - 3x6 lot - 2500 output

      4) SM2 Power Substation - 3x6 lot - no power output (eye candy, to be used with SM2 Wind Power Marine lots)

      5) SM2 Substation Transfer Box - 1x1 overhanging lot used to simulate underground connection to Maxis power pylons.
      I created custom icons for the 3 powered ones. Many timed props are also included.

      SM2 Marine Wind Power .

      You will find 2 lots in this pack

      1) The Wind Turbine is to be plopped on water.

      2) The buoy is to be plopped on water, from the Wind Turbine field to the shore.

      The buoy acts as a power transmission lot. It will light up at night if powered. Turn on your power grid and plop the buoys in a row. Watch the green power grid make the connection. Once satisfied, turn the power grid off.

      Each Wind Turbine will output 1800 units of power. By plopping a few of them you can enjoy unlimited green power!!

      I have created a specific Power Substation lot which can be found in my SM2 Power Pack. Plop it on shore for a seamless power grid.
