Hi fellow Tropican!

To get these codes to work, try holding down SHIFT while typing.

@Tropican, you must be doing it wrong somehow…I tried a few of them in Tropico 4 and they worked just fine (without holding down shift or anything).

Those codes will work with or without holding [shift] button.
The difference is, if you hold the [shift] button while typing the code, you won’t trigger some shortcuts in the game (like road or some buildings).
