SimCity 3000, the third edition of the popular city-building series, was overlooked by most fans. It was probably one of the most out-of-place SimCity entries, with its jazzy soundtrack, goofy caricatures, bothersome petitioners, and memorable news ticker that gave useless information 95% of the time.
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
-Mention which of the cursors have a 3D version. [Link]
-There are some more cursors which I'm not sure if they are used.. (Specifically: diagonal 1, diagonal 2, four way 1, four way 2, help arrow, left right, reg pointer, up down)
-Unused music, including the SimCity 2000 title theme, and unused air port tiles/formations. Info
-There are some more audio files which might be unused. Needs looking into (specifically: gunshot sounds, different "abandoned building" sounds,etc.)
Unused Mouse Cursors
There are some mouse cursor graphics that are never used. Some of them hint towards certain functionalities that had been planned but then scrapped during development.
Debug Menu Text
Find out if this debug menu is still in the game's code
At 0xFCDF0 in SC3.exe, there is some text which was likely used for a debug menu during development, nicknamed "Gonzo" for some reason.
Gonzo Debug Window Debug Window Shown. Debug Window Hidden.
Unused Ticker Messages
Some very generic placeholder messages for the tickers.
