SimCity 2000 is the sequel to the enormously popular city simulator by Will Wright, SimCity. Besides adding new features and complexity, SimCity 2000 introduces a brand-new isometric perspective, giving it a 3D-like look and feel.

DL#1 Version 1.0 of SimCity 2000 was the initial release. It is crippled by some rather game-breaking bugs that were eventually patched with version 1.1, but is otherwise useful for a cheat code that was removed from subsequent versions: porntipsguzzardo. When typed, this code adds $500,000 to your treasury and enables all placeable rewards. (For additional funds after this, type "ardo".)

This download includes Disk Copy 4.2 disk images of the Program Disk (1.4MB) and Scenario Disk (800k), both captured from original media. Each disk contains a self-expanding archive containing their corresponding parts.

DL #2 Version 1.1 fixes many of the worst bugs found in v1.0, including issues with the budget window, airports, and stadiums, how population is calculated with regards to arcologies, as well as how schools work (or didn't work) after a certain population level, among other things. The behavior of the Bulldozer tool was also modified so that it always reverts back to the default tool when you switch away, preventing any unintentional engineering disasters...

This download includes Disk Copy 4.2 disk images of the Program Disk (1.4MB) and Scenario Disk (800k), as well as a third disk (1.4MB) with a PowerPC-native copy of v1.1. All three disks were captured from original media. As with v1.0, each disk contains a self-expanding archive containing their corresponding parts.

DL #3 Version 1.2 adds a few new features to the game, like an "African Swallow" speed setting, as well as compatibility with the Urban Renewal Kit (which could originally be purchased separately, but was later included with the SimCity 2000 CD Collection, as well as the Special Edition). Additionally, the SimCity 2000 application file is now a FAT binary, meaning it can run natively on either PPC or 68k systems. Version 1.2 also reportedly fixes a number of additional bugs, but these are not detailed in the Read Me.

This download includes Disk Copy 4.2 disk images of Disk 1 and Disk 2, both captured from original media. Disk 1 contains an installer and the Read Me, while Disk 2 contains additional data used during installation.

DL #4 is the 1.1 Updater and its corresponding Read Me file. It was released freely by Maxis, and was recovered from the Info-Mac Archive. It can be applied to SimCity 2000 v1.0 (last modified on October 19, 1993).

DL #5 is the 1.2 Updater for SimCity 2000. It was released freely by Maxis, and could be downloaded directly from them via their (now defunct) FTP server. It can be used on SimCity 2000 v1.0 (last modified on October 24, 1994), v1.1, or v1.1 for PPC ("1.1PPCv4 v1.01").

DL #6 is the 1.2 Updater Read Me from the Maxis FTP site. It lays out the basics of the new version, but is less detailed than the Read Me that shipped commercially (see DL#3, above).

SimCity 2000 CD Collection

Architecture: 68k PPC

SimCity 2000 1.0 is 68k-native.

1.1 is available in both 68k- and PPC-native versions. If using the 1.1 updater on v1.0, the resulting application is 68k-native only.

1.2 is a FAT binary and runs natively on both 68k and PPC machines. If using the 1.2 updater on either v1.0 or v1.1, the resulting application will also be a FAT binary.

Uploaded new archives of each version, all imaged from original media. Also consolidated the updaters here as well.

If you're not interested in the CD Collection, be sure to update to 1.2!
