    Question Sandbox help!

    How do you get all the fun stuff in sandbox mode?

    Good question!!

    After running through all of the scenarios, I've noticed that upon going back into sandbox mode, you can only use the buildings that were available when you played that scenario! Is there any way to make the later buildings available on the earlier islands??

    Simple answer to that one..... alter the game slightly.

    when I bought the game (the day it was released) I wanted to give myslef extra money, so I could build and build without worries.

    So I went through the game files seeing if I could edit sumin.

    On my travels through the files I found out how to give myself all the buildings for all sandbox and scenario levels.

    Its simple to do.

    Go to your scenarios folder (which is in your data folder).

    In there there will be a list of folders (i.e. sandscenario1, sandscenario2, scenario1, scenario2 etc).

    Open them up and open the *.pis file. Here there is a list off all the buildings for that scenario.

    So go to sandscenario12 and copy all the buildings from there

    It will look sumin like this:

    // Level 1 onwards
    'BUILDING_9' "CAFE1"
    'BUILDING_15' "LOO"

    // Level 2 onwards
    'BUILDING_17' "REP"
    'BUILDING_20' "BAR1"

    // Level 3 onwards

    // Level 4 Onwards
    'BUILDING_31' "CLUB1"

    // Level 5 Onwards

    // Level 6 Onwards

    // Level 7 Onwards
    'BUILDING_41' "BAR2"
    'BUILDING_42' "CAFE2"

    // Level 8 Onwards
    'BUILDING_44' "CLUB2"

    copy all that and paste it in over your existing building list on all your other scenarios. Then boot the game up and load the level and they will all be available (obviously there are still some requirements.... i.e. you can't have theme bar without a beachbar etc).

    note that if you edit this file and then boot up a SAVED game the building wont be there... you need to start fresh.
