How to Use Karma Powers
You can only use karma powers when you have enough points. Karma Points are earned by completing wishes. There are 3 different types of Karma. Earthquake, Lightning and Wind. The earthquake makes the lower screen shake and cash in money bags fall from the sky. Each Cash in Money Bag contains about 100 simoleons. The earthquake can also cause things like sinks, tvs, showers, etc. To break. It can also cause fire (depending on how strong it is used and only on your home lot). The Lightning Karma Power lets you control other sims including yours. You can do a variety of things depending on how strongly you make the power. You can electrocute sims, energize them, go turbo, nauseate, shock etc. And lastly, the wind. It causes a windstorm. Causing trash to be blown over the place and maybe a bad smell. To access Karma Powers tap on the stick with little stars icon. (it is right below the info icon). You can only use the powers when game is in play. It will not work if you're game is paused.

Easy Money
The following trick will enable you to get money easily in The Sims 3 for 3DS. It is advised that before you attempt it you save the game. Begin by entering 'Buy' mode and selecting the most expensive item you can afford. Once you have purchased it place it where you want. Now select the 'Items' tab on the right side of the screen so you are returned to the page you bought your item from. The item you previously bought will still be selected. Do not press anything except the 'Purchase' button. You will now discover that the game will still allow you to purchase the item again even if you can't afford it. You can keep repeating this trick to continually buy the desired item so you can then sell it for money. Once you have accumulated a lot of money this trick will no longer work.

Get rich quick

Go to the store and purchase the most expensive thing that you can afford.then place it.after you place it go back to the store and purchase that item again.(The game will still let you purchase it even if you can't afford it).buy as many as you want.then sell all of the things you bought,keep doing this until you have a lot of money.

You don't have to go to the store

If you have an item at home and it's from the store and it's in the storage buy something first before you take that item out of storage. Put the item in your house. Then go to storage and click on the item from the store and put it in your house. After that go back to the buying section and select buy on the item that is highlighted. Then it will charge you the same amount of money that the item is that you took out of storage.

How to make alot of money without a job

First you go into furniture or build mode and buy what you can afford thats the most money. Then put that into storage. Then keep buying it again and again until you can't buy anymore or until you don't want to.(If you don't have enough room in storage then put them all over your house. Then go into the inventory and sell them all unless you want to keep them. Just to let you know once you sell all your items don't do it again unless you have the right amount of money. (I used the wall flat-screen) I hope this helps you.


Buy the same object over and over till you have no more money left once your money reaches to zero keep buying tht same product don't click on none other product stay on the same product once you think you have lots of that same item go to remov e mode the delete all those products when all deleted yu will have more money than you did b4 hope it works
