When enabling sandbox mode in Simcity it says it enables cheats. What are these cheats and how do you use them?


1 Answer 1


In order to enable cheats in SimCity, you will first of all need to create a region in Sandbox mode - once you're in the city, you can enable individual cheats by using any of the following key combinations;

ALT+W - Add §100000 to your City Budget

ALT+A - Toggle Air Pollution On/Off

ALT+C - Toggle Crime On/Off

ALT+F - Toggle Fire On/Off

ALT+P - Toggle Ground Pollution On/Off

ALT+M - Toggle Health Issues On/Off

ALT+H - Toggle Homeless Sims On/Off

ALT+S - Toggle Sewage On/Off

  • Did you try it out recently btw? Because I tried last week on the first day after launch and the money cheat was not working. I figured it must be a bug but didn't try afterwards..
