GrantMeMoney: get cash / money unconditionally


Playing semi-realistically but need some cash for a new highway? Just realized you're in dire need of several new firehouses, stat?

This mod lets you grant yourself any amount of money unconditionally. Use it for whatever headcanon you have.

Using GrantMeMoney
Click the button to open the grants panel, then click Apply to grant the money. If you're paused, it may take a second to update in the UI after you unpause. Negative numbers work too, in case you want to simulate losing extra money.

Click and drag to move the button.

Mod Compatibility
I'm not aware of any mods this conflicts with.

This mod was inspired by the Mo' Money Mod, which stopped working for me on a new computer.

The Future
In my games, I use this tool to simulate some government awarding grants for big projects. The end state of this mod, were it possible, would be something like:
  • $20k grant to build a new zoo or amusement park, with $10k available to start and $10k after the game recognizes that you've built out a new park area
  • $50k "transit" grant, half payable immediately and half after 3 new metro lines have been constructed
  • $15k "oil development" grant -- just unlocked a new area that has a lot of oil resources? here's a little stimmy to jumpstart development of a new industrial district

I can see how some might think that makes the game less sandboxy and more guided, but IMO it makes it more realistic -- if my city desperately needs a new transit line or a new highway (e.g. in Boston, the Big Dig and GLX are prime examples), the federal (or state, or whoever) government is usually gonna kick in some money to make it happen.

For now, though, the mod lets you decide!

Can you add an option for UUI support?

If this isn't working for you, please post your error logs in a discussion here or in an issue in GitHub and I will investigate -- the mod should be pretty verbose about logging. It appears to still be working in my game, so I don't know what would be causing issues. Make sure you unpause the game and give it a few seconds for the money to apply.

This does not work, use Game Anarchy instead (this is what Skyve is suggesting)

I downloaded this mod for the every first time today and it worked nicely with RICO, Find it, etc. I found the icon on the left-side of Chirpy.
