(If sim 2) Free Pizza!!!

How to Get Free Pizza!!!in

1. Buy a pizza. Use the phone(It will say he will come there in 1 hour)
2. When his there.(The delivery man) enter ctrl+shift+c
3. Type moveobjects_on.(without the . )
4. Before he goes go to buy mode. Select the pizza and POOF! you got free pizza.

I always do this especially that my sim always over sleeps and is always so slow! and that means not going to work and that means losing the job and that means no money.
Hope you play all the sim game like me.(actually I'm just downloading sim's 3, The rest are so easy)


Preserving food for when your Sims need it! (Nightlife required)

If you want your sims to keep leftovers for later, you don't have to have the Sims 3. It can be done on the Sims 2 if you have Nightlife! On this expansion pack, your sims have inventories. Just have a sim to serve food and then, go to the rewards menu of a certain sim and open up their inventory (the backpack). Place the large bowl/plate of food in your sim's inventory and it will stay preserved until it's taken out again!

Keeping food in your sims's inventory preserves so you can take it out whenever your sims need to eat! If your sims have no cooking skill, they can order pizza via the phone. With pizza, you can put individual slices or even the whole pizza box in your sim's inventory. I always do this with pizza!

Become or Cure a Vampire

To make or cure a vampire, go to the neighborhood screen and type in "boolprop TestingCheatsEnabled true". Then go to your household and shift-click a sim and choose "Make Vampire"/"Cure Vampire". I suggest using the "Raise/Lower Health and Skills" cheat for your vampire as they are hard to satisfy.

Here are two hints about Sims woohooing! First make your sims woohoo then pause the game and go into buy mode. Do control shift c and type in the white box moveObjects on ,exactly as you see it. If a sims hand or foot is sticking out click on it and take it out, you can see what they do while they are woohooing. Works in a hottub too. Second. Go take a sim and their lover to a store with clothes and a changing booth. Make one sims try on clothes. Doesn't matter what kind of clothes our what outfit. Then whan that sim is in the changing both you can make the other sims click on the changing both and do Public woohoo. It adds a memory to your sim.

How to make an all-purpose sim

Having an all-purpose sim that does everything your working sims don't have time to do themselves would be a dream come true... Especially if you didn't even have to take care of that sim. It doesn't have to be a dream anymore.

This requires around three to four steps, depending on how multi-functional you'd like the all-purpose sim to be.

Step one. This requires about three cheats, so if you have no problems with that, then bring up the cheat window, use boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true. Hold shift and click on any sim in the house. Click on "Spawn." Choose "The Tombstone of L and D." Next go to the tombstone and click on Adult Female/Male, your choice. A new member of the house has been made. It's randomized and has it's own name, look, clothes, personality, and aspirations. (Though I've found that females are always Aries with the Popularity aspiration.)

Step Two: Hold shift again and right click him or her. Click "spawn" again, click on "sim modder." This will produce a little baby doll that has the power to make sims' lives much easier. From there, you will begin a series of programs and settings to make your live-in all-purpose sim the perfect nanny, cook, maid, friend-maker all wrapped up in a nice neat package.

Step Three. With your new sim in control, click on the baby doll. Go to motives. You'll get a choice to max the sim you're controlling, another sim, or the entire house. For this, you'll select "Me/(name of sim)" Click "Max All." All motives will then have full green bars. Hit "motives" again on the sim modder baby doll. Choose the controlling sim, and click the option for "make static". This means that the motives will never decay, thereby fixing this single sim into having no needs. They don't need sleep, food, bathroom breaks, socializing, or showers (unless they spend time on the exercise machine). And the needs will never decay except for Hygene if using the exercise machine. But if you keep the Sim Modder baby doll, that can be fixed with a quick visit back to it.

Step Four: And this I only recommend if you want the most efficient all-purpose sim available but it's not entirely necessary. Use the Sim Modder again and this time click on "Skills." Choose the controlling sim for the skills, then select "max all." And now you have the perfect cook, maid, repairman, and outstanding joke-teller. (High charisma goes a long way in the friendship department). He or She will also paint anything and sell it for a high price. Good for when you don't need them for anything and want to park them somewhere and forget about them for a while. Remember, their needs NEVER decay!

Repeat step four for personality and interests (still optional but doesn't hurt) and max them as well. Now you have a live-in all-purpose sim that does just about everything you need without needing anything for themselves. If you want to be especially neglectful, you can also set it's aspiration to the "grilled cheese" aspiration (using the doll again) and fulfill it's wants with mountains and mountains of grilled cheese. Be careful though: A sim that eats when it's not hungry will get fat very quickly. If that's not a problem for you, then I say the more the merrier!

Me personally? I like to set their aspiration to pleasure because those wants are easier to fulfill than anything else. They're happy with bubblebaths, toys, and jumping on the couch all day. And that aspiration isn't as likely to lead them to a heart attack later on in life!

How to copy a house you have just built

After you have finished building your ideal house, go back into the Neighbourhood screen. Select your house you want to make a copy of. Then select the 'Package Lot' icon, then select 'Package Lot to a file' icon. You will be then told where your file (your house) has been saved to. The folder where it has been saved will be My DocumentsEA GamesThe Sims 2Packaged Lots.

After you have done this, you must exit the game. Look in the 'Packaged Lots' folder, and you will see your house file (whatever name you gave it). Copy this file into the 'Downloads Folder' (EA GamesDownload Folder). You will now see your file (your house).

Double-left-click your file, a screen will appear asking do you want to install the following content, click on the 'Install Button'. After a short while your file will be loaded, then click the OK button, to confirm. If you want more than one copy of your house, then keep on Double-left-clicking your file. Start The Sims 2 game and which ever neighbourhood you are in, just select the F2 button and you will see your house or houses. You can even copy all types of buildings by using the above hint. Happy Siming.

French Maid & Don

I think his name is Don... Anyways, instead of putting him with Cassandra, put him with the french maid. They get along way better.

Cheesy twins

If you want twins, have one of the adults learn to make a cheesecake. Then have them try for a kid. If she gets pregnant then after she expands once, have her eat a piece of the cheesecake. This last may not always work: if the man started the woohoo, the twins will be girls, if the woman did the twins will be boys and sometimes they are both.

Really random clothes and hairstyles/hats

Enter boolprop testingcheatsenabled true while in the neighbour hood view.
Go into Create a Family and press Shift + N.
A box will come up in the corner saying "The sims 2 is now in de-bugging mode" (etc). To turn it off press shift + M.
(By the way the two letters could be the opposite way round, but I'm positive it's N & M.)
