If you don't feed your Sims, they will die of hunger. You can only starve Sims that are teens and over. If you attempt to starve babies, toddlers and/or children, they will be taken away by the social worker.

How To Make Your Sim A Werewolf [PETS REQUIRED]

If you are a canine lover (like me), you'll want to make werewolf Sims. This is how to do it.

1. Attract the wolf with glowing eyes. Add lots of trees and have lots of babies/toddlers.
2. Become friends with the wolf
3. When your Sim and the wolf become good enough friends, the wolf will nibble your Sim and he/she will be infected with lycanthropy.
4. Every night, your Sim turns into a werewolf!

(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.
