All Platforms - Tricks
The following tricks will work with all known versions of SimCity 4. To ensure that these
tricks work correctly, make sure that you follow each step exactly as it is written. does not provide support on any tricks listed here.
Return to God Mode After you enter the Mayor Mode and name yourself and your city, the game
will no longer allow you access to the extensive terrain editing tools that are available in
God Mode, unless you first select to obliterate your city. It doesn't have to be this way.
To get back into God Mode without blowing everything up, simply hold down CTRL, SHIFT, and ALT.
Then click on the God Mode button in the interface.
Warning! Use caution when applying God mode tools on your existing city. Some of these tools,
such as Smooth Terrain will instantly obliterate your city just by clicking the button. Those
that don't cause instantaneous changes may also still damage the city severely, as there is far
less consideration in this mode for the preservation of the surrounding structures.
Animation Recorder Have you ever wanted to show off your city in a cool video file? Now you can,
using the built in "recorder" feature in SimCity 4:
Open the cheat box by pressing CTRL+X and enter the code "recorder"
Upon entering the code, the following applet will appear:
Simply enter the Name you would like to call the animation, the Rate in milliseconds between
frames, the Time in seconds to record for, and select which type of Output format, you want to use.
Click the Start button to begin recording. While recording feel free to move around your city,
or even build things. Anything that happens inside the box will be recorded.
After recording finishes, the recorder will ask if you want to save the images. If you select Yes,
it will place them in My Documents\SimCity 4\RecordedAnimations under the name animation_name ###_###,
where ###_### identifies the order of the images in the sequence.
Click the Close button to close the recorder.
Use a program like Jasc Animation Shop to create a .AVI file from the images.
You can change the area of the screen that is to be recorded, by dragging around the outline box
that appears on the screen while the recorder is open. You can also drag the edges of the box to
change the size of the recording space.
