  • Abusing the gambling ordinance

    Unlike in past games, the revenue from the legalized gambling ordinance is not dependent on population. To take advantage of this, start a new city and build a single tile of road. At the beginning of the next month, enable legalized gambling and you will earn $100 a month without having to do a thing. Leave the game on overnight at maximum speed and never worry about running out of money again.

Easter Eggs

  • C&C 95 Reference

    Place industrial zones and you will eventually see a manufacturing or high-tech industry called Kane Tiberium. If you have played the first Command & Conquer game you will remember that Kane is the leader of The Brotherhood of Nod and tiberium is the green, alien, toxic mineral that GDI and Nod needed to fund themselves.

  • Simcity 3000 at the Movies

    If you're just starting a city, a drive-in theater may appear in your commercial zone. This drive-in plays a short clip of the intro movie for Simcity 3000.

  • Neverending resources/garbage disposal

    By giving you the ability to exchange resources between your cities, the game opens itself up for all kinds of abuse.

    The big scam is that time only passes if you actually load a city. If you fill a city with nothing but power plants, water pumps, and landfill (and the appropriate connections) and then never open it up again, you can send in garbage and take out water and power without ever having to worry about paying upkeep or running out of landfill space. Not what the developers intended, but certainly a worthy trick.
