Various Cheats and Hints
Use the following procedure to sell the indicated buildings for free minigunners. For the GDI missions, sell a Guard Tower or Advanced Guard Tower. For the NOD missions, sell a SAM site or Obelisk Guard Tower (Obelisk of Light). First, select the "Sell" button in the Sidebar. Use the Left Mouse Button to sell the building. Use the Right Mouse Button to activate the selection cursor. Use the Left Mouse Button to select the building and press
Start the game with the c&c funpark command line with the NOD disc. Choose to a new game and select NOD. This will start the game in dinosaur mode. You will play three missions against the dinosaurs and then three other missions where you control the dinosaurs. Note: If you save your game, it will resume in the regular game and not in Funpark mode.
Controlling air units:
Note: This trick works for both the GDI and NOD. To control air units in midair, simply give the helicopter a team number. This allows you to give multi strikes without reloading.
Begin building a structure without enough money for completion. Press R to surrender before construction stops due to lack of money, but do not complete the surrender command. Wait a few minutes, then select the "Cancel" option. The structure will be half-completed.
This trick requires a Construction Yard, a high enough tech level to at least build Sandbags, and decent amount of money (depending on where your base is located). Build Sandbags/Fences/Concrete Walls to close up entrances to your base. Make sure the walls are not too close to your base, because the enemy will just shoot over it. The enemy AI is too dumb to know that they can "tear" down walls and they will just stop when they get to the wall.
If you want to protect a certain units (for example, an ore truck) select a vehicle then hold Ctrl + Alt then click on the unit you wish to protect. It will follow it around for protection.
Build a "wall" around Tiberium when playing against the CPU. Make sure to also close up the entrances to your base. Then, press R to display the surrender option. Do not press anything else and wait for some length of time. Then, choose the "Cancel" option. The Tiberium amount should have increased on the map. Note: make sure the Tiberium is "regenerateable".
Train free civilian:
Build a silo, then sell it. one civilian will appear.
When you build a Nuclear Reactor ($1000), your power bar will be full of green with very little yellow and red. This means you do not need to build Power Plants, Tesla Reactors, or Bio Reactors, as long as the Nuclear Reactor is still in use. When you build a Nuclear Reactor, you can sell all your other Power Plants and get extra money and still have near maximum power. Be extremely careful when it is under attack. If it is at low health, immediately repair it with the Wrench. The Nuclear Reactor explodes just like the super weapon "Nuclear Missile", and leaves a circle of green toxic mist for a certain amount time. When you get super weapons, you will also get Force Shield. When you notice the Psychic Dominator, Nuclear Missile, or Weather Storm used on you, use the Force Shield. Once you use this on the Nuclear Reactor and other buildings, they cannot harm you as much.
Easy win on final NOD mission:
Build all the way along your tech tree and send a Cyborg Comando to one of the small bases with a Construction Yard. Secure the area and build three Carry-Alls. Pick up the three Missile Launchers and bring them directly to the beacons. Note: You might want to send some troops to the top-most beacon, as it is guarded by a RPG launcher.
