Below are listed all known cheat codes for SimCity 3000.  Please use these at your own risk - we recommend that you save another copy of your city before using the codes, just in case.  We are not responsible for any damage these may cause you or your computer.  HAVE FUN!

However, we do not recommend using cheats until you have learned the game well.  (It may seem fun at first, but it quickly becomes boring - trust us, we checked each code and it got boring!)  Cheating is no replacement for knowledge and experience as mayor.  Don't worry if you don't know the game though, the more you play, the more you'll learn!

Make All Buildings Available!
You can have all SimCity 3000 structures available at the click of a mouse very simply.  You will be able to build anything you want by simply selecting it from the Landmarks window!  All zoned buildings are free to build, but everything else you will have to pay for (i.e. power plants, police and fire stations, schools, etc).   Just open and close the following windows in the order they are listed and if done right, all buildings will appear in the Landmarks window:

1. Power plants
2. Rewards and Opportunities
3. Garbage facilities
4. Landmarks

To enter codes, load a city and press the following:  Windows: Ctrl + Shift + Alt + C or Macintosh: Cmd + Option + Shift + C.  A small text box will open in the upper left corner of the screen.  Type any of the following codes into that box.  Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.


    Description / more info

call cousin Vinnie After entering this code, " Local Fundraising Event" will appear in the Meet window.   Click this, and Vinnie will offer you some cash obtained through unorthodox means.   If you choose to accept, you will be given the money, otherwise, you will be rewarded with the code below, "ZYXWVU", for passing his test.  You may only use this code once.


SimCity Castle

Rewards you with the SimCity Castle (pictured at left) which will appear in the rewards window.  Use this code after rejecting the Local Fundraising deal obtained by typing "call cousin Vinnie".   The castle will increase land value and aura in the surrounding regions. 

What the SimCity Castle stats mean:
Princes Primping = # Museums
Dragons Dancing = # Fire Stations
Heads a Rolling = # Jails
Crowns Glistening = Base value of funds divided by 50,000
Knights Neighing = # Police Stations
Jesters Joking = # Zoos

force Moe to say [insert text here] Supposedly causes Moe or whoever else you type (Constance, Gus, Karen, Maria, Mortimer, petitioners) say whatever you enter in the [insert text here] space.  This cheat did not work for us, but maybe it could work for you.  When the petitioners were made to say something, an unlabeled message appeared in the petitioner window, but contained nothing we had typed in.
