Easy Money cheat for The Sims 3


Easy Money

An easy way to make money is to start writing novels on your computer. Write fiction novels as they take the least amount of time. To begin with the novels won't bring you much Simoleons but your skill will automatically advance the more you write and when your skill is high enough you will be able to write more genres. The most money can be made from Romance Novels and you will get royalties for six weeks once you finish a book. When you have the 'Writing' skill maxed out you can make about 40,000 Simoleons every week which is more than the 34,800 Simoleons you can get by purchasing ALL neighborhood businesses and takes less time to achieve. In three game weeks you should have a very high speed writing, 9 or 10 novels as best sellers and 100,000 Simoleons.

Ok my sister and I have sims 3 for wii. My sister made two people, a boy and a girl. Now the boy is old and is going to die in about 2 days and the girl wants to be a gold digger. So far we have 53,000 Simloens, but is that rich enough? Anyway we tried the Catfish trick and it didn't work. Were looking for lots of cash, and VERY quick

how to catch your house on fire
you buy the cheapest stove ,then cook anything on stovetop halfway stop cooking and you will see black smoke rising then the pot will disentegrate the meal will catch on fire. make sure your sim is no where near the room the fire is in if playing on wii. and if person catches on fire hurry up and put them in the nearest water source.

Isn't the point to make money through playing? If you cheat and get loads of cash, then there's no point in trying to play the game.

The Sims 3 for the Wii is very different from the computer version. First of all, the catfish trick does work! Thank you for that tips. ;) I bought 25 3 star catfish (***), took them home and put them in the fridge, read a book, and then took them back to the store and sold them for 450,000 Simoleans. I assume you can do this over and over again as needed or go for more all at once. Also, the Karma Power works as well. Press the - key and in that window that opens, find the "Rewards" icon. Click on that icon and check out all the things you can have with your rewards points. I made my Sim not have to ever use the bathroom or take a shower/bath. =D I built a treehouse and didn't put in a bathroom. I am still working on finding a way to keep my Sim from dying though. :/ I am hoping the deathfish and life fruit ambrosia recipe resets her age but I haven't gotten my cooking all the way to level 10 yet. Still working on it! Fishing and cooking have to be level 10 to catch deathfish at the cemetery, and ambrosia is a level 10 recipe. You can get the recipe at the Book Nook next door to the food store, where you can buy many other recipes as well.

Anyone ever figure out how to reset age to keep from your Sim dying??

Go to the food shop and buy a level 3 catfish (for $9). Once you have done that put it in your fridge and speed forward time. After about 20 seconds take it out again and sell it back to the store. It will now sell for like $17,000

Wii people who wants to make more money. What I did is, I went to the supermarket and bought 20 (3*) Catfish, then I went home and put in the fridge, the next day after work I went back home, put the 20 catfish back in my inventory, went to the supermarket and sold it back to the supermarket. It allowed me to see one fish at %u20AC17000, so I was overwhelmed. I can tell you that. For the novel, unfortunately, the wii doesn't give you any options to write novel, so I switched to the PC version, there is so much more to do, well, hopefully that would be sorted out, cause it's much nicer to play on a big screen but o well.

the way you get money is by first: buying a small house and adding only a frige and a bed. Second, go to the store and but 100 catfish(make sure its the one with three stars!!!) Third, you go back home put the fish in the fridge and go to sleep. after you sleep, go to the fridge get the catfish, go to the store and sell the fish. each fish will be worth at least 17'340 simoleons

Another really easy way to make money is to go into the science buisness. You can get over 1000 a day by at least level 5 of the work force. My sim is making at least 290 an hour and I'm not even top rank of the science level.
