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!

Works like a charm. Brillant!

@jms1402 the button starts and stays on the top aside de Chipper.

The mod core runs smotly and correctly with the new update (fev 2022). The only thing that still escapes is that the button doesn't stop where I put it. Every time I restart it goes back to the top. Could a hot fix be possible? Thanks for your work :) :hardhat:

Sadly I can't find the button on my whole screen...

@Shiva check if you have no other money mods applied.

Found the button at the top to the left of Chirper. But, clicking on Grant button, only displays a message that Grant is approved, but no money is credited.

@cedricthespider This mod is pretty old and abandoned, and the modders have other things to do. Your ideas are right, this mod could be developed.

This is a great idea. I'd been thinking recently that it would be useful if you could move money from one city to another and this would be a way of simulating that. I wonder, is there a way to randomise whether or not the grant application is approved?

@Will Switch off unlimited money mod and click on the lovely green button and of the panel opened, just write your amount into the cell => apply => close.
