Written by Kelvin Leen

Foreword :

This FAQ is done in a rush, but still my 3rd FAQ written ...

This is a FAQ written for the newest SIMCITY game for PC. It's
based on a web site for hard cored fans to discuss about tips
and advice each other about problems of the game.
I found some hints useful for new players and I kinda of wonder
if it could help ....

Remember that these cheat are based on others experiences. I
only compiled them into this FAQ !

Thanks to the great people who figured out the cheats and tips
this FAQ maybe short but it goes out to you all ! If you think
your ideas are found at the website I was talking about, then
mail me for your credit !

THIS FAQ MAY NOT BE UPDATED OFTEN.

-The Cheats for the game

One of the best aspects of the game is the cheat, where we can
get all the power to build and create the city we want without
and restrictions at all !
Certainly you didn't pay a great sum of money and end up
frustrated that you can't beat the dang game,so cheat a little !

Access all the cheats by pressing :
Alt  Ctrl  Shift  C

This should bring up a small column to type in anything.
Well, just type in the following to get strange effects.

PLEASE NOTE : The cheats are not 100% confirmed to work for
all versions. They may be case sensitive also, so if nothing
works then try again !

i am weak
<You won't pay a cent to re-do terrain or build roads with
this one ! The only thing stops your way is removing trees,
they still cost money.>

power to the masses
<Pretty obvious that this a cheat for power supply. It will
grant excess to all possible power plants no matter what time
zone you are playing in. Example, Microwave Power Station in 1900
is really impossible unless you've cheated !>

water in the desert
<Like the above code, this will grant all possible Water
structures in any timezone.>

garbage in, garbage out
<This grants all garbage buildings, no matter what timezone.>

call cousin Vinnie
<It's a one time offer. You type this and access your
"Meet" option at the screen's toolbar. You should then meet
up with a fishy looking guy that's got cash for you
- $100,000 if you accept his offer !

However, judging from a good mayor's point of view ...
it's corruption ! You take the pick, and if you don't
accept the deal, then type the following cheat ....>

zyxwvu
<This will only work if Vinnie gets rejected ! You will get a 
reward of a castle in your "Rewards" option on the toolbar.>

Salt on / Salt off
<This determines if your seawater or any other water source
will be fresh water or salt water in nature. This helps to
reduce cost for destillation of the salt water.>

i love red tape
<Notice that if you "Query" the City Hall, it has a
"miles of red tape" listing.>

Well, that's all for cheats !

--------------------------------------------------------------------

A few light facts :

There is a castle in the game, only way to get it is by doing
the call cousin vinnie trick and rejecting him.

There are no Arcos in the 3000 version. In SIMCITY 2000, the
Arcos are basically the most advance housing structures you get
when your city is very powerful and advance !

It's not confirmed but you can convert previous game files from
SIMCITY 2000 into SIMCITY 3000 game files ! I heard also that
the money brought over from the previous save file will also remain
intact ! (Start hacking those millions in your SC2K game files !)

There are more national landmarks in the game for use, more than
what was given in SIMCITY2000.
