Tropico “First Constitution” option [Lua] by copperzinc
This mod adds the “tropico first” constitution principle as an immigration option. This option does not override any existing citizenship policy (such as “Guarded Heaven”). Instead, it adds a “forth” option once you researched constitution options.
When this option is enabled, no migrants will be allowed (This means ZERO immigrants AND emigrants.). If you want foreign workers, you have to get them before activating this principle, or after deactivating it.
This policy is currently “neutral”, meaning no foreign factions will like you or hate you for activating the edict. However, activating the edict will add “2” to corruption of your government. This represents the general overhead for enforcing the edict

UberTanks [Lua] by Wowiwankenobi
Makes your tanks move a bit faster so they dont need months to get from one side to the other side of your island, so they get more effective.

This Mod will speed up your workers insanely! Here are two pictures which shows a construction of an airport. Both buildings has been placed in pause mode at the same time, only one construction office received the upgrade.

Wind Farm [Building] by PizzaVideos555
That’s right guys, Tropico has gone green! The mod includes a wind farm that produces electricity without the use of any resources. Instead, service quality increases depending on height or distance away from shore. The building generates a reasonable sum of electricity, and doesn’t require workers! This may just be the solution to your power outages (which are caused by coal/uranium/natural gas shortages).
