It's surprising how some (many) people keep having troubles with the cheats. So I started compiling all the cheats I could find. This is a recapitulation of Cheats found in different sites. It looks incomplete. The intention is to gather all of the cheats, give them added descriptions and simply explain how they work. The same endeavor will be done with SC3U. Any new cheats, comments and suggestions are most welcome. This is the latest update as of 22/9/17 ALL THE CHEATS OF SimCity 4 RUSH HOUR AND DELUXE-4-5.doc
So, I decided to re-create the extracheats dll, because I concluded that I need some custom DLL to finish my mods. It will take a while, LOTS are missing, despite the partial source from buggi, and from Paul Pedriana, the cheats dll rely on lots of stuff that was never released (so far... I am nagging EA, lets see what I can convince them to lend me). I noticed some stuff that you might think it is interesting: 1) Indeed, cheats.dll was compiled from a Maxis-owned computer, or at least it looks like that. 2) Buggi partial source, was carefully edited to remove some proprietary stuff from EA, this is why noone has been able to do anything with it. This made me suspect that indeed, Buggi was a Maxis employee hiding among us. Also, no matter how much we pester him (if we find him, since he is seemly gone), he can't help rebuild the dll, at this point unless he was moved to the The Sims team, he is probably fired from Maxis (EA fired everyone in early 2015, the date also coincide with Buggi last forum visit, but that might be just coincidence), so he can't access the source anymore. Also the reason EA never released the "DLL SDK" as many people wanted, is because the DLL SDK is the whole Rizzo-Gonzo framework, used to make all Maxis games since 1996, it is probably not possible at all create some DLL SDK that don't reference anything from Rizzo-Gonzo.
