    U-Drive-It Guide

    Version 2 By Voar Tok

    Please PM Voar Tok if you have any questions about this article.

    One of the biggest attractions to the Rush Hour expansion for SimCity 4 is the U-Drive-It missions. These things can either be a great addition to the game, or a plague depending on how you look at them. However, judging from the fact that you are reading this, I'd say that you've already decided to give them a shot. All of the various mission vehicles have some oddities to them, so I'll focus on general tips and the like for the vehicles that tend to give people problems.

    Something that you will notice with all of the missions in SC4 is that they have a "good" or "evil" side to them. Some of the missions are good (meaning that they tend to have beneficial rewards like an increase in mayor rating or a reward building being unlocked). The "evil" missions usually cause your mayor rating to fall for a while, but they leave a chunk of cash in your city vault as a reward (although some of them do unlock rewards buildings also). Except for the Grand Railroad Station, which seems to have a bug in it and may or may not have been fixed with the updates for the game, you can get all of the reward buildings without playing the missions.

    You'll notice in the game that all of the vehicles come with this general instrument panel layout. They are all a little bit different, and some might have some special additions to them. The tank is a primary example since it has a gauge to let you know the amount of power that will be used when you fire off a round. If you are ever unsure what a particular gauge is for, just hover your mouse over it and a tooltip will pop up telling you.

    When you are driving a mission, it's usually ok to drive on the side wrong of the road or on the sidewalk. The exception to this is when you are driving and you have a siren turned on. When you are doing that, it is best to stay on your side of the road because people will usually move out of way. Also, when you are driving with the siren on, freight trucks have a tendency to drop their trailers in the middle of the road and leave them there. When you are driving through some area like a toll booth or a bridge where the snap to roads feature is on automatically, you should always stay on the proper side of the road because if you are on the wrong side, you could have your mission terminated prematurely. The same hold true for driving on the edge of a city tile. If you hit the side of it, your mission is most likely going to be terminated.

    When you are playing on an "evil" mission, you have to be careful to avoid the police. They will be all over your city, and when one of them turns its lights on, he's on to you. There are two ways to deal with this - either get on another road really quickly, or hit him. If you decide to hit him, the best way to do it is to get along side of the car and just tap into him. This is especially helpful for vehicles like the garbage truck that don't have nearly enough hit points for the missions that you have to play. On some of the missions, you will be chased by police helicopters. Avoiding these guys can take some getting used to, so don't feel bad if you don't figure it out the first time. To avoid getting stopped by them, you'll have to keep them from shining their light on you for too long (and too long is a relative time - it can vary from mission to mission). The two easiest ways to get the light off of you is to either cut off on to another street or try to ride in the shadow of tall buildings. Riding in the shadow of tall buildings doesn't always work though, so you may still need to change roads often. Also, the police don't follow you on every "evil" mission (the Toxic Waste Truck mission is an example).

    When you are operating vehicles like the tank, you'll need to experiment with the thing a few times to get the feel of how the ammunition firing system works. With the tank, a good rule of thumb to follow is to lower the barrel and the barrel power all the way. This will cause your shot to go approximately one tile before hitting the ground (this makes it a lot easier to take out the building you really wanted to destroy). Be sure to experiment with the vehicles before running a mission where you have to destory something. Air vehicles have a tendency to unload their ordinance off to the side if you shoot them while making a turn.

    The helicopters and the UFO tend to be difficult to turn around while moving them. The easiest way to solve this is to let them slow down and then try making the turn. One the UFO, you'll notice that there is a little blue window on the front of it, so that is the easy way to tell which end is forward.

    On certain missions where you have to perform a command at a target site (like the ice cream truck missions) it is best to leave the spacebar held down until the game recognizes that the objective has been completed. This helps to guarantee that you actually complete the mission, because sometimes the game won't recognize a simple tap to activate something.

    There is still one final thing that you need to know before you start playing UDI missions. As you go about running into things, you'll gradually lose hit points on your vehicles. However, if you are running a mission in a vehicle like the ambulance, you can actually get the vehicle some extra hit points by carefully running into a stronger vehicle like a tank. This is something that you need to practice several times before you try it in a mission. If you do it properly, you'll notice that the diamond over your vehicle starting to turn green. However, if you let it get too green, your vehicle will explode on you right then and there. To get it to stop recharging, you need to back away from the vehicle you are touching. Cement mixers are good vehicles to try this on at first.

    If you read all of this, you now have a good idea of the fundamentals necessary to complete UDI missions.

    A very special thanks goes out to Altx. He wrote the original version of this article, and if it hadn't been for his article, this would have been far less detailed than it is. So Altx, wherever you are - Thanks!

    Also, a special thanks to SkiGeek for all of her help on this project. If it hadn't been for her constant encouragement, I might not have ever finished the mission tables that you can find farther down in this thread.

    If you have any questions about this article, or just UDI missions in general, you can check out the official thread on them, or you can send me a Private Message.

    User Feedback


    Great article, THANKS! All the information about rewards and prerequisites were perhaps the best parts of the thread because I tend to always use the snap to road key when I am driving. (can you really recharge an ambulance health?) The gaps make this article a bit difficult to follow though. Is there any chance of a *.doc download though please?

    Hi all. I made a .pdf of Voar Tok's article (without the gaps) but for the life of me I can't figure out how to attach it here. There's this thing at the top of the reply box here called 'My Media' but I can't figure out how to access it or add content to it.

    Thoughts?
