Cheat: Easy Money / RCI / Freight mod 1.0

   (4 Reviews)

About This File

As with my other mods, this mod accommodates my own incorrigible penchant for extreme cheating (cough) ease of play.  Not compatible with other RCI mods (RCI plop mods are fine). Tax building values are high, pollution levels are low, freight quantities and frequency of production are increased. 


-- Offline only --


For all RCI buildings:
* Tax building value set to 100,000 simoleans.  
* Minimum workers for operation for all buildings reduced to 1.
* Garbage reduced to 0.
* Water capacity set to 15 and water usage to 5 (or left alone if lower)
* Power capacity set to 15 and power usage to 5 (or left alone if lower)
* Self-ignite threshold property set to 500, up from either 45 or 90.  

Additionally, for all industrial buildings:
* Transmitter amount (volume of pollution) set to 0.  Occasionally, some industrial buildings show as polluting, but nothing comes of it.
* Transmitter Rate (how frequently a building pollutes) set to every 10 hours (600 in-game minutes).
* Skill threshold (number of educated citizens needed for tech level) set to 1 for low, medium and high residents. 
* The delay, in minutes, for producing the next batch of freight set to 15 (down from 36, 48, and 72).
* Freight production doubled.

---> Note:  More than likely, you will need to replop existing industry.

This mod only affects RCI buildings, so transportation, utilities, trade, landmarks, etc., are not affected.

Compatible with RCI Plop (003_OFFLINE_DLC_OBJECTS_SUGC_TEAM1_20140231_2_1_RCIHCPLOPALL.package).

Thanks to rzvsividra for identifying the instance ID#s of low tech medium density buildings, freight amount, and freight production delay.

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 industry.

For some reason you're mod used to work great and awesome first. However after i reinstalled sim city, your mod basicly now bugs out an entire region when ever it gets loaded. 

I tried reinstalling the game. I tried redownloading the mod. I also made sure it is only this mod and no other mod. I am only using all of your cheat mods, and i am using all your latest versions. I even ended up trying to delete all my save games.


But the bugged region, when i restarted so the mods get loaded, it shows weird numbers, were money and population should be. So it prevents me from doing anything at all. 

I have no screenshots yet, but i will include them in just a few minutes, i just have to make them first. 

Can u please fix this?

Added screenshot to my previous comment. Hope u can fix this. Since loading your mod bugs out entire regions like this. 

The screenshot in my previous comment, the mod there is no longer loaded, i deleted it, however the region is still bugged. 

Also one quick extra note: I have not build anything at all yet, i did totally nothing. A fresh restart of the map so mods get loaded gives me this bug.

One more edit: I also noticed that i cannot change resolution, because when i hold my mouse over it, it says that i am still in tutorial mode....?! Which i am obviously not, however the game believes me to be still in tutorial mode.

It appears i fixed it myself. I reinstalled the game, and this time i made sure i slowly did the tutorial so i would have no mistakes that could cause any glitch. So in conclusion your mod did not bug out my entire regions, the game itself did that, very oddly.

so i set this up on a city i started and thought wonderful this will finally make the industrial sector's freight requirements actually get fulfilled. then i saw the income chart. i was making $100 million will only a small amt of industry and residential. this was way too much. is there anyway that you can make a version that just fixes the amount of freight and frequency. or tell me how to? much appreciated

I'm having an issue where my ore and oil building don't detect the resources, and therefore don't mine any of them, there may be more issues with others but I haven't checked. Could this be an issue with your mod?

@Exabit, I haven't played the game in a long time, but I don't remember any of the resources being unaccounted for in my cities while playing for having any of my cheats installed.  I'm not sure off the top of my head what would be causing that.

Hey @xordevoreaux,

first and foremost, thanks for this mod, I know how much effort one has to put to release these magic tools into the community and I want to give you the recognition you deserve on this.
I tried to dabble with your mod a bit since I don't fancy such an extreme cheating approach, I managed to get the tax value easily, same with the garbage and pollution generation, however... I could do with your help on this, I still haven't figured out how to change the freight production rate. I am using SimCityPak to edit your package files.


Think you can point me in the right direction?

      I think I do have a good idea how RCI works, but is there any data out there that shows in detail the inner workings of the RCI demand system? Not their effect on the city but literally how demand is generated/calculated. Just curious ;o
      Sorry if that's already been answered somewhere else - I haven't been able to find anything :/

      Thanks to @CorinaMarie, I discovered 50 files of various RCI buildings, very pretty, very American, by a long gone bater @dk1.
      There are NO dependencies in any of the files. Many (all?) are improvements from the default MAXIS ones.
      Now my question: how can I place them in my plugins folder without creating more havoc. Ideally, they should stay together in a dedicated folder, but with what name?
      Thanks for your comments.

      Radical Maxis Re-Lots (Beta-0.2)

      Product Type : Lots
      Author : This is my name
      Version : Beta-0.2
      Dependencies : bldgprop_vol1.dat, bldgprop_vol2.dat
      These dependencies are required for some of the lots (eg. R$, CS$$) that require additional props appearing as buildings in the game.

      Radical Maxis Re-Lots is an attempt to modify all Maxis lots, growable and ploppable, to appear more realistic and more detailed. Features including alleyways for most lots, accessible parking, and Uniform Street Light Mod-compatible lightpole layout.

      If installing from the ZIP archive, download, unzip and install directly under your C:\My Documents\SimCity 4\Plugins folder.

      In Radical Maxis Re-Lots folder, there are sub-folders indicating the type of lots in the folder (example: CO$$, R$, PZ). You can control which type of lots will appear in the game by removing the sub-folders that you do not want out of Plugins folder.

      To uninstall, just remove the Radical Maxis Re-Lots sub-folder from your Plugins folder.

      Only in new cities
      I have changed the size for some of the lots, sometimes covering a full range of a growth stage, for example: Scoot and Pump, all high-rise apartments in R$.
      No lot blockers please (eg: Maxis blockers)
      These are re-lots, as such, they will not work well with any blockers.
      Graphical glitch WILL happen
      if installing in previously saved cities if you do not have required dependencies  
      This mod can be added and removed anytime
      These mods do not interfere with SimCity 4's system.
      There is a solution to immortal lot bug
      If a growable lot overlaps something after installing this mod in a previously saved city, bulldoze the lot. If you have bulldozed the growable lot but the lot itself stays, dezone and rezone using a different zone (example: if the affected lot is residential, rezone using commercial, any density).
      If the lot still stubbornly stays, please proceed here.
      This project has been discontinued. Very sorry, everyone.
      If you are interested in this project's history, please proceed to the development thread here.
      Contact me here.
      Right click, copy email address. 
      Only important questions.
      I will not answer unnecessary questions.

      Anyways, thank you for downloading this mod!
      Mithrik - thanks for giving feedback on version Beta-0.1!
      And to all others who support this project, thank you very, very much!

      Read Me version 0.2-1.023

      Is there a modd out that that allows you to plop EVERY build (as in: allows you to plop growable lots such as homes and stores etc.)?

      If so, what is it?
    • By huzman
      I found this link to the file  "SimCity 4 Cheat List.pdg" in a post by FlyHigh. It's like ten years old, and downloaded it. When trying to open it Adobe Reader says the file is faulty. My search for it failed.

Season's Greetings!
