This cheat is helpful but USE SPARINGLY! If you do it a lot it won't work as well. To gain rep points fast go to the group's leader. For those of you who don't know the leaders here they are:
Richies: Luthor Bigbucks. Find him in Glasstown or near the Museum
Artsies: Roxanna Moxie. Find her in the circus or near the flea market.
Nerdies: Polly Nomial. Find her in the school, flea market, or the coffee shop near the flea market.
Streeties: Darius. Find him in the flea market or near the clubhouse. To gain rep points find one of the leaders and simply talk until it goes to relationship 100. If the leader is already at 100 say something they DON'T like and then something they DO like. Exit the conversation and it will say you got a rep point. If you keep exiting and talking it will keep saying you are getting rep points but if you check you will notice your not. This is a great way to get rep points to unlock clubhouses. PS. I realized a few days ago that the leaders will not move in with you no matter what your relationship is so don't bother.
Colors, Rep Goals, and MoreAdded 15 Feb 2007, ID #10296
First, you can change the colors of a few of your household items... Here are the colors: -Red -Blue -Green -Tan -Black I think that's it. You can change the colors by walking up to an object and pressing R or L.
Second - here are each group's Rep Goals for you: Artsies: Recycle 100 pieces of trash* Advance all the way in the Comic Explosion minigame Bake a strawberry tiramisu
Nerdies: Advance all the way in the Dr. Max Stat minigame Make a petrified wood chess piece Give 15 bog frogs to the deputy
Richies: Own 30k in household stuff Advance all the way in the Moogoo Monkey minigame Have 10k in funds
Streeties: Advance all the way in the Hoops minigame Seriously annoy Daddy Bigbucks (Rel -50)** Convince Ewan to join them as a Streetie
*You have to have 100 pieces of trash before you recieve the Artsie's goals, and give them to the jail guy afterwards, because all the trash disappears once Roxanna tells you them.
**After you beat the game, you can find Daddy Bigbucks on the small sector of Paradise Island from 12-1:00 am. I know he's on that little island, I'm just not sure about the time.
Also: In the tunnel at the jail, between 6 and 7 am, a ninja appears. He will sell you skill smoothies, (1 skill point, $999) a slip of paper, ($999) and a rosebud smoothie. (gives $2,222, costs $100) Another thing is that nuclear rods appear at Moon Base Zeta sometimes.
You and a linked up friend are are able to get the same thing as each other. All you have to do is auction the item then save on the game that got the item and on the other game, don't save. Save on both games BEFORE you trade.
P.S. When auctioning the item, the person who's item it is, press and hold Down on the D-pad.
Okay this isn't really a cheat but...ok. In phone home(the telephone booth in sim quarter) there is a door right behind you if you go in you will see a guy for half a second then he will disapear. When you go back to your house he will have robbed it unless you have night ninja security but the burglar alarm isnt good enough you WILL be robbed unless you have night ninja security I have tried it time and time again.
