Debug Mode - Windows 3.x
While playing, highlight the toolbar and type "oivaizmir". You must enter this in lowercase, so make sure your Caps Lock is off. If you do this correctly a new menu entry called DEBUG will appear. From here you can get free money, all the technology and gifts, and choose from more disasters.

Eliminate SimCopter 1
Anyone who has built a successful airport in Sim City 2000 knows that SimCopter 1 can get annoying. To eliminate it, shut off disasters, then go to the icon bar and select the centering tool. These are now your official SimCity cross-hairs. Possition it over the unfortunate copter and press the left button on your mouse. This will take some practice, but it's funny when you hit 'em.

Magic Eraser
With the magic eraser, you are able to erase structures. But when you query on the blank tile, it still shows the structure! This is perfect for arcologies, because you can build over them, and the population remains! This is how you do it:

Select the "Tree/Water" icon on the toolbar, and choose trees.
Click and hold the mouse button over the part of the structure you want to erase.
Without releasing the mouse button, press and hold Shift
Without releasing the mouse button or the SHIFT key, drag the mouse over anything you wish to erase. The buildings will vanish, but the population will remain intact.

the above are all the cheats i've ever found!
These codes don't work on windows 98 but they will in windows 3.1 and windows 95
