To use a cheat code, press the [Ctrl], [Shift], [Alt] and [C] keys at the same time (for Mac users the key combo is Apple+Option+Shift+C). This will bring up a cheat window for you to type a code.

After typing this code, you will see a Local Fundraising Event appear in the Meet window. He'll offer you some cash, and if you accept the deal, he'll give you a large wad of cash. You can only use this code once.
Easy money
If your city is going broke or to get quick cash, pause game play near the end of the year. Raise taxes for Resident, Industry, and Commerce as high as possible. Resume game play, and you will get a large increase in money at the end of the game. Pause game play again and lower all the taxes to a suitable level. Resume the game. Mortimer Green will demand that you lower taxes, but then he will notice that they have been decreased and change his comment. Note: Sims may complain that taxes are to horrid to pay and they will threaten to move out if changes are not made. If this happens, click on the "Meet People" button, then click on Mortimer's picture. He will give you brief summaries on the tax levels, (high, low, or average). Follow Mortimer's advice if he recommends lowering or raising them. However, you can also listen to your friendly Sims.

Enable the i am weak code, then take out ten $250,000 loans. You will never have to pay them back because everything is free, but it does get paid back.

At the main screen, load a city created by the CPU. Metropolis is the best for this. Play with it until you get a lot of money. Next, pause game play, and destroy the city with demolitions. Save with the name you want and start playing. You will start with all the inventions, millions in money and a totally empty terrain.
Entering cheat mode
Press [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Shift] + C while in the simulator. A prompt box with a flashing cursor will appear in the top left corner of the screen. Type one of the following codes and press [Enter] to activate the corresponding cheat function.
