Don't put a rug in front of a fire place VERY BAD IDEA I was petting a dog in a cold room an put a rug under us and then went back to pet the dog and the whole rug was on fire and I was in the middle SAVE OFTEN I went to neighborhood while on fire it said do you want to save I said no and I'm happy back by a little bit but not dead after all my hard work and promotions!!
First, activate the move_objects on code. Then buy something that increases the skill you want to increase. Have the first sim use it and then move him and have the next sim use it. The first sim is still "using" the item, but now the other sim can to. Repeat as necessary.
If a burglar comes you have no phone your sims are asleep or the police wont come in time just first pause the game with the p button on the keyboard then open the cheat the cheat box (cntrl+shift+c) then put in the move _objects cheat then delete the burglar! But if he has already stole something theres no point but it's up to you so be quick.
Hope I helped (\/) (heart)

To do way cool stuff type moveobjects_on just how it is there. To make a Sim really happy do the following; SAVE THE GAME! (must do this!), go to buy mode, bring up cheat console type in moveobjects_on, and then delete your sim.
Don't worry!!! The sim hasn't been killed you will see a little red X in the corner of your sims image just click on the image and your sim will appear happy as ever!!!
Not so much a cheat but for a little fun and a giggle- when your sim is just about to get out of shower, (even if pixelated) pause game and go to either Buy or Build mode, then delete/sell shower. Return to play mode and your sim will be left naked- and no pixels- to roam around the house free as a butterfly. ;o)
If a burglar is about to rob your house and your sims appear to do nothing that would help you the best thing to do is if you ever build a house.Build the house and decorate it.If your house is to fancy like if it has all expensive or a particular expensive object\objects.Then you should keep a burglar alarm ready in the house and it should be located next to the door.Hope I helped in your burglar troubles.
To delete your mail box you need to hold ctrl, shift, c this opens o cheat box tipe move_objects go to buy mode click on your mail box and press delete warning this could make it so you can't talk to peaple you invite over.
When you Want To have twins In Sims 1 You Wait 3 Days on Slow Mode When You Have a Baby And When Your Baby Is just about Ready to turn Into A Child, A face should appear on Your Family Bar Thing, (You Have to be Quick and Pause The Game before Your Baby Turns into A Child) Click on the Face And Your Child Should Appear, Set the Game On Slow mode and The Cot should Turn Into A Child as Well.
You Now Have Twins Who Can interact With Each other and Their Parents, But be warned Only one twin can control Things, the 2nd one just mimicks the other.
Have kids or can't be botherd to work no problem
You don't have to go to school or work and you can build on the road with one cheat
Ctrl + shif + c all togetthe then type move_objects on
And delete trash can and mail box then for loads of money rosebud
And then put your walls on the road school bus can't come up nor can a carpool
So have fun
First, make a big, deep hole. Put your sims in it. Voila! One dead sim!
Are you too busy to go to work, or wutever you do on the game??? Well then type ctrl-shift-c and type in move_objects (just like that). Then go grab the mail box and put it on the side of the road your carpool arives on.
It will not leave until you move the mail box. The only downside is the car will be sitting there Honking until you move the mail box. It sucks I know
P.S. This works with any object (beds,trashcans, walls, ect.)
Peace out Mutha
To make your Sim full easily: enter the cheat "Move_objects on" then make your
Sim eat food and then while he is eating, go to buy mode or something and move your Sim. Your Sim will then be full and you will be able to prepare a new plate!
Continue doing it everytime you want your Sim to get full quickly!
All you have to do is press shift ctrl and C then a grey box will appear then type in move_object and the click on the bin and you can delete it then delete the mail box or put in a collum...... then place the mail box on the top.
Put a wall around it also buy a trash can for 30 simoleons and when it is full delete it and you will get your 30 simoleons back or you can hire a maid for 10 simoleons a hour which I will admit don't hire the maid.
If you don't want to hire a repair man get a book case and you can study mechanical and get skills and repair it your self.
When your sim puts the bills on the table, just push control + shift+C and a grey box will appear where you can insert cheats. Then, type "move_objects on" into the grey box and go to buy mode. Just click on the bills and then you can delete them!!
If you want a really long balcony without all the pillars that take up too much pace. Then just go to the downstairs veiw and put the pillars where you want the floor to be, then go to the upstairs veiw and click "undo last move" until all the pillars are gone. If you did this properly you should still be able to put floor where the pillars were.
Hope this works for you too! *-*
I would imagine that this cheat will work with all expansion packs, I have all of them and just figured it out. But lets begin,
1. Create your family, but give them no attributes.
2. Next, buy the potion maker, and make potions until you get yellow, which will reverse all your attributes, so your attributes will be maxed. (note-this could take a while.)
3. Now, enter the move objects code by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C then typing move_objects on
4. Now when you receive a skill, such as 1 logic skill from making potions, save the game and go to buy mode. Delete your character and go back to play mode. Click on your characters icon and he will be back with all of his previous skills due to the save and your characters will also be happy do to deleting him/her and bring them back.
I hope that this works for you, and have fun, if you have any questions please email me or I'm me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my aim is liknprkundgrnd
If you want to buy one of the houses next to magic town but you dont have enough Magicoins, move your sim into a vacant property and wait for the Mystery man to come and leave you a package. Open it and add the Magicoins to your inventory. Save the game and exit to neighbourhood view. Then evict the sim from their property and repeat this procedure. It does take a while but patience is a virtue and there is a good reward.
Hint: Sell the other items in the box and make a small financial gain at no cost to you
You know all the complicated procedures to get rid of your trash? Well, here's how you can make money off it.
Sell your trash can when it gets full, and then buy a new one.
Ta-da! No taking the garbage out of the trash can, canceling the action, and blah blah blah. Ha ha ha ha hee hee hee.
I love adding drama to things.
To create a square house or a room very easy just hold shift and drag your mouse across the screen, then simply let go of the mouse...... there you go, you have a square!!
Also if you want wall paper to cover your walls or capret to cover your floor, hold shif and thet go.
Use the ctrl button to deleat walls or flooring.......also water or pools.
When you put in cheats, hold (ctrl, shift, c) thenlet go and you will see a rectangle box in the left hand corner of your screen. Then type in any cheat you want.
When putting in cheats an easy hint is to put a ( ; ) in to seporate money so you can continue putting it in and save time.
Ok first buy a swimming pool. Buy a diving board too.
Now, tell your sim to dive in. Right when the sim dives in, he has to be atleast halfway in the water, switch to build mode and click hand tool (the hand icon).
Then grab your sim and put him in the middle of the street. He'll still be swimming around!
P.S. This only works if the move_objects_on cheat is on. Activate it by pressing and holding shift,c,alt,and,ctrl all at the same time, which will bring up the cheat box at the top left hand corner of the screen.
