Generate a city in 2000, using any version of 2000 you want (dos, windows,
mac). Do NOT try this with a city you import from classic - no matter how
many times I tried, I could not get it to work on a simcity classic city
that was converted. Make sure that you have highlighted the icon bar on
the left side right before you are going to do this - seems to be a key.
Type the following:
It seems to work only with caps lock off - lower case only.
Each time you do this, it gives you $500,000 more funds and turns on all
the rewards (mayor's house, city hall, statue, dome, and all the arcos)
without regard to the date or population you are at. This seems to be
very much the same as on the mac when using porntipsguzzardo or
topsguzzardo (depends on which mac version you have).
Interesting idea for both pc and mac situations (for the mac, you luckily
do not have to switch as on the pc between dos and windows versions,
otherwise do the same):
Start a new city in 2000 for dos but do NOT do any building or other stuff
yet. Type FUND and take the bond at 25% interest; repeat again. Now open
the budget window and then the bond window - take out a bond. The bond
offered will be at .% interest. If it is not, you did something after
starting your city up which you can not do to get this to work right.
Accept the bond at .% and immediately pay back the other 2 bonds at 25%
interest ONLY. Close the bond window and forget the bond window forever
for this city. You will now have an income of over $1.4 million (pc) /
$1.3 million (mac) every year of your city's being. Go a head and lower
your tax rate to either 1 or 0% - you will have more than enough funds for
this city for the rest of its life so you dont have to worry about income
from your citizens and they will more than move in.
Now save your city and start 2000 for windows and load your city from the
previous step (for the mac, just continue working on your city).
Highlight the icon bar on the left side and type the magic word for your
system for an additional $500,000 as well as all the rewards being
available. The major item a lot of people would be interested in at this
point, it would seem, are all the different arcos. Imagine building a
city with a date of 1900 and making all lauch arcos for the whole city all
at once??? I dont generally build cities with arcos but I know a lot of
people who just love them for the large populations. So now the pc folks
have the same capabilities as the mac folks do for 2000. Just repeat the
magic word for more $500,000 incomes real quick if you want. If you do
the earlier, you probably will not if you wait a few years to build up
Now you can either save your city and go back to 2000 for dos (for speed)
or just keep in windows and continue on your way. Since I have access to
both 2000 for dos and windows, this seems a great way to go for cities
made in 2000. Have not tried, but would be interesting to see what
happens with cities that used these ways and were imported to the other
platform (pc to mac or mac to pc).
