Sim City 4

Are there secret codes?

Games Guru: Of course there are secret codes for SimCity 4! This is, after all, a Maxis game — those guys live to slip weird stuff past you. Here are the three most useful codes:

  • FightThePower—to remove power requirements
  • HowDryIAm—to remove water requirements
  • WeaknessPays—to add 1,000 SimBucks to your treasury

To access these codes, hit the Control and X buttons at the same time, then type any of the code phrase.
