Infinite Water Trick

Placing a water pump (using filtration pumps) directly next to a sewage treatment plant allows for infinite water. The sewage treatment plant adds back in to the ground water table at that spot. The filtration pumps ensure your water won't get polluted from the ground pollution that will occur. Using this trick, you can pick 1 of the 4 clustered cities in your tradeable region to use this trick over and over. This will provide a massie amount of water that can be purchased. You can then buy from that massive source while building the other 3 cities. This will save needing to place a water source and sewage treatment plant. This can be done for any utility/service.




Debug Menu

Load or start a new city, then choose END from the Save/Load menu. When the "See you soon!" screen appears, press the following on controller 2: Left, A, Right, Y, Up, B, Down, X, Select, Start, Start, Select, R, R, L, L. Press Up or Down to scroll through the options, and press Left or Right to toggle them on or off. To activate the selected features, change MEMORY to SET and reset the SNES (they will remain active even if you power off). To deactivate everything, go back into the menu, change MEMORY to CLR, and press B.



Get away with not paying funds

As far as I know, Auto-Budget must be off to use this code. When the Budget screen comes up at the end of the year, set all funds to 0%. Now select Go With Figures. Immediately save the game, then reload it. The game should continue as if you set all funds to 100%, but you weren't charged for them on the budget.


Stop the meltdown from happening in the Boston scenario.

Before you start the Boston 2010 scenario (at the telefax screen,) immediately hold the L button before you start. Keep holding the L button, and then bulldoze the three nuclear power plants. After you have bulldozed them, release the L button and rebuild the three plants. Now you can play the scenario without the meltdown actually occurring.


Tokyo Scenario Cheat

Before you start the Tokyo 1961 scenario (at the telefax screen,) immediately hold the L button before you start. Keep holding the L button, and then bulldoze every square of shoreline. After you have bulldozed them, release the L button. Now you can play the scenario without the flood actually occurring.




At any time while playing a city, spend all of your money on buildings that require funding (such as police stations, fire stations etc). When the tax screen apears at the end of December hold down L. Select ''Go With Figures'' and then go back to the tax screen. Turn all of the dues to 100% and exit still holding L. When you release L your money will be at $999,999.


999 extra city maps

There is normally only 999 city maps, but if for any strange reason you need 999 more, here's a way to unlock 999 more maps. Start a new city, and choose any map number, then start the game. Now select the ''Go to Menu'' Icon located at the top of the screen, and choose Start New City without saving. After a short period of time, the map will change, but the number wont.
