Time Cheat cheat for The Sims FreePlay


Time Cheat

One of the most annoying things to me was the time factor -- you had to wait for EVERYTHING. However, I discovered time is device-side, even though the rest of the game is server-side. So if it takes four hours to finish building a house, for example, simply turn off the auto network time on your device and advance the time by four hours. Reopen the game, and wala! The building is finished. After you're done playing, even if you're months in the future, just turn network time on again, and you're good. The gameplay does not revert back, so all your progress using the time exploit is kept! Hope this helps!

They must've caught on to this cheat & fixed it to where you can't use it. Went & turned my network time & time zone (just to be safe lol) off, set time 8hrs ahead (when my Sims would be done w work), went back to had become dark/nighttime but one dude was still planting watermelons & the other 2 Sims were still @ work, still w 8hrs left. Total bummer that it doesn't work anymore!! 😒

I had mine busy..2 were @ work & 1 was planting watermelons. Still didn't work for me. Changed it to nighttime in Sim world, but didn't fast forward their activity time.

If that doesn't work, of even if it does, try this.It gives you 30,000 to 35,000 SC and 3 to 4 LP. Close completely out of your game. Go into your settings on your android device and find the Date and Time settings. If you have "Automatic date and time" checked, uncheck it. Set the date to Oct. 23, 2015. Close your settings. Open your game. All of your tasks should be finished, your pools green and all of your properties and buildings in town view should be read to be "harvested". A window will pop up telling you that your Sims have missed you a lot and here is Simoeons and LP to help sheer them up. At this point you can go to each sim you have doing a task. They will be done, but don't start any new tasks yet. Close Sims completely and reopen your Settings/ Date and Time and set the date back to the present. Reopen Sims. You can do this over and over again but after the first time it might take a few times of opening and closing Sims for it to work. This worked as of July 14, 2015. G

So I'm pretty sure the creators must have someone dedicated to finding out what the latest cheats are that ppl are using, then the creators fix the glitch thereby causing the cheats to not work. Unfortunately NONE of the cheats I've tried thus far have worked. 😠😟😠😟

This is a old cheat. This cheat has been fixed and only works at older version of the game. Have tried, and doesn't work at all. Probably (or it has been) fixed since long updates ago (maybe)

Dont do this cheat. I tried it. It wont do anything but screw up your game big style. PB rewards will take ages, like a year maybe, and chances are (i dont know this for sure) youll housebound your sims if they arent swimming or something. You've been warned. This cheat? Nothing but a curse.
