Cities: Skylines 100% Achievement Guide

Yesterday, I got 100% Achievement! Yay! I was so excited, I really planned to achieve it without any mods or shortcuts, but I was just really stuck with "I Want It All" Achievement that I found myself finding best shortcut ever!

Anyway, I have written a Guide on Steam, with my Save Games, shortcuts, etc. You can get the links below. But if you want to play by the rules, I am writing this guide is for you. Again, if you want shortcuts, go straight below to the links section and go to my steam guides and workshop.

I started posting my guide on March 17 with 83% Achievement guide, it does not have the Monuments and the I Want It All achievements. Then updated it on March 21 with 97% Achievement with the Monuments. And then updated it yesterday with 100% Achievement. You can see the timeline, I did it with several days and several save games. The only time I shortcut my achievement was the last achievement I got the "I Want It All".

Anyway, let's proceed with the Clean Guide.


  1. This guide is for those who don't want to shortcut the game achievements
  2. Go to my Steam Guide for shortcut achievements if you want. Links below.
  3. You will need to play several games depending on the Achievement requirements.
  4. The achievement can be done with several games or one game if you are hardcore!
  5. One game for all achievements is possible but really hardcore! You'll just have to reject bailout every time! (I got several achievements rejecting bailout)


  1. Decorator - Go to Main Menu > Tools > Asset Editor. Select the asset you want, design and decorate it. Then, SAVE.
  2. Terraformer - Go to Main Menu > Tools > Map Editor. Design, decorate and plot your map. You will need at least 4 roads connecting to your city. Then, SAVE.
  3. Pioneer - Go to Main Menu > Start New Game. Pause, plot roads, connect them to both highway roads (entry and exit roads), put electricity supply, put water supply, don't forget the sewage, plot the zones (residential and industrial). Play and SAVE.
  4. Well Informed - Click every question mark (?) on the lower left side of the screen every time you go to each panel like roads, zones, services, etc. Don't forget the upper left view panel and the middle one called Chirper (the game's version of twitter).
  5. City Planner - Once you've unlocked the districts, quickly draw 3 districts even on empty lots.
  6. Lawmaker - Apply a policy to one of you districts. Make sure you don't spam policies, for it was the reason why I always got bankrupt with my first 3 games. Just make sure you need them to implement them.
  7. Power at Your Fingertips - Grow you city until you've unlocked all City Services namely, Electricity, Water, Garbage, Health, Police, Fire Dept, Parks and Recreation, etc.


  1. Fire Watch - Build 5 Fire Stations. NOT Fire Dept. Headquarters. Know the difference!
  2. The Safest Town - Build 4 Police Headquarters. NOT Police Stations. Know the difference!
  3. Safe City - Have Police Stations or HQ all over the city. Keep the all buildings in Blue or High, and NO Red buildings. Make sure roads are Green when you put the buildings.
  4. Frenetic Player - Click 1 Police building (Station or HQ) and click it for 100 times. Spam clicks to this building and this building alone. Don't click any other buildings. Do it 100 times.
  5. Professional Dumper - Have 5 Landfills full. Make sure you have enough Landfills or Incineration Plants to run the rest of your city while doing this or you'll loose citizens and eventually money.
  6. SIMulated City - Grow your city until you can unlock and buy 9 lots. This will unlock when you reach at least 50,000 citizens.
  7. Happy Town - Make sure all services are available to your citizens and make sure all of them are in Blue or High and NO Red buildings surrounding those services. Keep your citizens happy and run it for 5 years.
  8. Unpopular Mayor - You can start a new city for this. Have a city that has no access to any services. Keep growing it without services. No Sewage helps.
  9. Distroy - Have 11 districts with unique policy. Best way to do this is to implement 1 policy each district. You have to make sure these policies don't affect negatively on your economy (weekly income). Example for this is to implement a "Raise Income Tax to Low Residential Zone" to a High Residential Zone area.
  10. City in Motion - Have at least 20 metro lines. Make sure you have enough income and money in bank to keep your city afloat. Best way to have this is to have 1 metro station point to 1 adjacent metro stations. Example: You have 5 Stations namely A, B, C, D and E. Have a line in each points for Station A (A-B, A-C, A-D, A-E). If that is not enough, make it point to 2 stations like (A-B-C, A-C-D, A-D-E). Spam it or you can add more stations and plot it nicely. Just keep in mind that it will have an upkeep.
  11. City in Motion 2 - Have 50 metro lines. Do same thing here only in a larger scale! 50 transport lines really!

Grown Up Games

  1. Climbing the Social Ladder - You need 1 citizen who graduated from a University. Just 1 citizen. Put a university on a low residential area and wait for a citizen to graduate. You don't need to spam all schools. It will require Elementary School and High School built before you can achieve this. Seriously, no body jumps to a higher education without the basics. Not even geniuses. Basics! hahah
  2. Rolling in Dough - Have a city weekly income of 15,000! Not impossible, just grow the number of your citizen and make them happy. All services in Blue or High and NO Red buildings around it. Check on Policies and also check on Taxes. You may need to disable some Policies for it will cost you money to implement them and you may need to increase taxes.. Max for all is 12-13% don't go any further or you'll lose Citizens and Money!
  3. Tough City - City survives no Police for 4 years. Crime rate 41% and above. Best way is to start a new city without any services! I have written a complete Guide about this in Steam. I will write a clean version for this here in my blog soon!


  1. Earthloving City - You will need to remove all water and ground pollution! You don't have to maintain them, just let them hit 0% for both ground and water and you'll unlock it! I have written a clean guide here in my blog and a shortcut save game and guide in Steam. Just visit the links below. :D
  2. Higher Education - Make sure you have the positive stream of income for the possible upkeep and policy implementation. You will need to cover all eligible students (elementary, high school, and university). Max them or just have capacity cover the eligible. You will need to implement the Education policy to all residential areas (high and low). You can use the Hardon Collider Monument to help boost Education. Achieve more than 70% of education for all levels (educated, well educated and highly educated levels). All 3 levels must be more than 70% that is 71% and above.
  3. Power to the People - It was easy for me to get this since I didn't have any Industry zones. I just have Offices since I wanted to achieve No Pollution during that game time. I just over taxed my Industry (Yellow) to 30% and everything else was normal and it unlocked for me. However, if in case you have Industry (Yellow) zones, I suggest you have this: Industry 13%, Low Residential 7%, High Residential, 7%, High and Low Commercial 13%. You don't need to touch commercial at all but just to be safe. Also it says, "Either" Residential, so your choice. I suggest you chose to lower the lesser zones of the two. Run it for 1 year.
  4. Make them Pay - Again, this was easy for me because I only have Office and I didn't have Industry (Yellow) zones. But, I still made these taxes: Low Residential 12%, Low Commercial 6%, Industry 6%, High Residential 13%, High Commercial  7% and Office 7%. Run it for 1 year.
  5. Metropolis - have 100,000 population. Grow your city, have more tourists and extra residential spaces for them to move in and also extra job spaces (commercial, industry, offices). Make all services available and make everyone happy.
  6. Heavenly City - Unlock Monuments. Grow your city and eventually it will unlock for you. Requires 75,000 population.

  1. I Want It All - Unlock all buildings in the game. I found this the most difficult to achieve since I got the Deluxe Edition. There was a bug in the parks that didn't get to unlock until the recent patch.
  2. Unlock Landmarks was hard for me too especially with the Arc.
    1. You don't have to build them but just to make sure, build them. When you 1 requirement drops, it will lock again! Example, you filled 7 cementeries and you accidentally emptied one, the Grand Central Terminal will automatically Lock! So, you have to build them as soon as they unlock!
