Submenus DLL Pl Submenus DLL Plugin

A DLL plugin for SimCity 4 that

  • enables submenu functionality: This DLL is a dependency for other submenu-compatible plugins.
  • adds a number of standard submenus such as Plazas, Green Spaces, Sports.
  • fixes the game's menu rendering issues caused by duplicate or missing menu icons.
  • implements Exemplar Patching functionality

System requirements

  • SimCity 4, version 1.1.641 (the digital release) (more info)
  • Windows 7+ or Linux



  • Copy the DLLs into the top-level directory of either Plugins folder (place it directly in <Documents>SimCity 4Plugins or <SC4 install folder>Plugins, not in a subfolder).
  • Copy the file submenu-essentials.dat and optionally the individual submenu files anywhere into your Plugins folder. You may skip installing an optional submenu if it contains neither Flora nor any sub-submenus. In that case, the buildings of that submenu will appear in the default top-level menu instead.

Alternatively, the mod can be installed with Sc4pac: memo:submenus-dll


  • Submenu icons created by @Panda
  • Exemplar Patching implemented in collaboration with @Null 45

Further information

  • The DLL dynamically creates new submenus by checking for some new exemplar properties, for example in the building exemplars of ploppable lots. This allows anyone to create additional submenus for their lot sets. The modding details are described in the Readme file.
