How to earn money, inspire sims, and keep your Santa! cheat for The Sims FreePlay


How to earn money, inspire sims, and keep your Santa!

Make all Sims plant bell peppers,
(your going to turn the date back first, so whatever you make them plant you'll still have to wait for it to harvest, hence the bell peppers shortest planting time.)
Exit out of game, double click your home button.
Once your recents bar pops up press and hold the sims box until it shakes and the red minus bubble pops up in the top corner. Click the button.
( this will not delete your game)
Go to settings, general, date and time, click OFF automatic, set only your YEAR back to 1970, return to game.
Wait for your plants to grow and harvest them.
( your plants may reset themselves it's fine just wait the extra 30s for your bell peppers, you will also notice your Santa is GONE do NOT WORRY you'll get him back in the next steps)
After harvesting your bell peppers have all sims plant something else.
( I usually plant a day long plant this also helps bring in more money)
Now repeat the steps above, exit game, double click home button, delete sims off tool bar, go to general, date and time.
NOW click back ON AUTOMATIC.
Return to game.

Harvest your plants, some sims may be frozen, no worries just go to another home and return to that sims that is frozen and they will be unfrozen.

**the first time I did this my Santa still did NOT come back IF your Santa did NOT return the first time no worries, just exit the game, double click your home button, delete the sims in the tool bar, then return to game and he will be there. This only happen the FIRST time I did the is cheat after that your Santa should automaticly return on his own.

**if you set your year ahead example:2013 you will lose Santa for good!! This is why you set the time BACK first THEN bring it to PRESENT DAY.

**if your Santa goals increase just simply complete one of the normal tasks BEFORE a Santa task and the number should return to what you were at before.

Do you have to already have a Santa when you do this or will it still work if you don't have your Santa? I've actually never had a Santa because I got this game after Christmas since I got my device for Christmas. :/ please help!!

If your Santa is gone for good becaus you went ahead of time then it's gone for good the only way to get it back is to delete the entire app and reinstall it. That's what I had to do then I figured out this cheat and now I'm back up to level 17 in four days. ...........

For the person who listed another way to cheat .... You just wrote down exactly my cheat except your year is different....... It's the same thing.

For those of you who are using it, you can also use this cheat to build quicker, just simply start the build while your in the ' back in time' mode go to your town build a house or store THEN exit out of game after making your sims plant and click back on your year to automatic

If you changed your date to 2013/ so on, there is no way tht you could get your santa back. Unless you delete then re install the sims, but you need to do new sims if you want santa. I tried this cheat, its rather good and i can do it multiple times. (y)

Another way to get money is to exit the game and double click the middle button. It will come up with all your past apps you have been on, hold down the sims and delete it. Then go to settings and change the date back to 2010 and go back on the game. Do the double click thing and change the date back to 2012 and when you go on the game your money should have gone up.
