If you ever wanted to feel like a benevolent God laying waste to an entire ecosystem then the Cheater’s Panel by DarthPresidente should be right up your alley. With this mod you are able to control things like natural disasters, war and monetary income.

Once again hailing from modder DarthPresidente, the Citizen Overhaul mod allows you to perform more actions related to your citizens.

There’s a cost associated with each actions, but fret not, as they can be disabled in the config menu.

All Buildings Unlimited 2.0 mod removes those pesky build limits allowing you to construct to your heart’s content. Only a certain handful of buildings apply however but most popular choices are covered including banks, nuclear power plants and city parks.

While it does remove the caps associated with each type of building it does not allow you to earn benefits from the extra ones you construct.

Drug Trade

Want to channel your inner Pablo Escobar? Yes? Then look no further than the Drug Trade mod by DarthPresidente. You can add copious barbiturates and stimulants to your world including cannabis, coca, cocaine, opium, morphine, heroin, and pain killers, among others.

You’ll also gain access to all of the associated facilities like hydroponic plants and plantations.

Sometimes it’s those small, quality of life mods that can make all the difference to a game like Tropico 5. This mod gets rid of that annoying clicking sound every time you select a building.

This could make the difference between sim-game bliss and a desktop shaped hole in the wall. The mod is similar to the No Bells mod from Tropico 4.

Rebels Attack Military

Best Tropico 5 Mods in 2022

This mod by OPTWood causes rebels to attack military bases at your will. It definitely adds a new dynamic to the world, giving the impression of a contentious, ever-evolving landscape. The rebels will attack all military buildings including all nuclear and space programmes.

This tweak manages to remove some of the frustration associated with the military systems in the game, making them more direct.

This mod enables you to deal in bigger quantities and be a general big business tycoon. It multiplies the default initial quantity of all deposits and works on fishing and offshore oil. Recent updates have added actual quantities instead of generic labels onto fishing deposits.

It’s worth noting that the mod will auto-adjust the multiplier down (seperately for each deposit) to avoid deposit sizes larger than 2 billion.

Mass Upgrader

Best Tropico 5 Mods

Mass Upgrader gives players the option to do special mass upgrades to a range of buildings. The mod creates a brand new building type called the Upgrader’s Tower which allows buildings to be upgraded in batches, saving a lot of time.

With this mod electrify is made obsolete by this mod. If you have both installed the upgrades created by electrify won’t work.

Magic Forest
