how to get a family
first you have to find someone you love and you call him or her every day to romance them, and make sure tey rnt a room so when she wants to romance and they are in their room they will propose to you and after you have romance you will see a ring on your hand and it will say that they proposed.

how to "time travel"
well, i saw a question on how to set your clock forward,so here is how you do it. well for an example... when you are building something and you dont want to wait 8 hours, you first buy what you want to build and you then save the game. Then you turn your d.s or dsi off and go to settings. Go to time and change the time 8 hours forward. What i do to make it easier, is to go to date and put the date up about three days. Hope this help you.

Unlock Alien Invasion
During game play save your data and switch the DS off. Set the internal clock so it is earlier than the save and this will unlock a short cutscene where you have to fight off an alien invasion.

Get free stuff
Ok when a man calles up saying his bed, sink, ect... Go to the dessert and it should be there right. but here is the trick, when you pick it up, don't give it to him and it will reapear. Keep doing this and you could sell and sell and sell. Free stuff. (when you get bored, be nice and give it to him.)

How to get married to him or her
Call him/her every day then make shure she rented a room. Every time she is in a(MOOD)kepp doin it then you will see a ring on her/his hand then it will say you just got married..........

Unlock 'Combat Mode':
Collect 12 License Plates

Unlock 'Razor Burn':

Need this, $$$$?
There are many ways to earn money of your own. So let's start with the basics. The cash on The Sims 2 are called Simoleans. First, you start out with $2,000 Simoleans at the start of the game. But, you spend big bucks at the start of the game. You have to pay for the Casino because it is one of your goals and if you don't pay for it, you're stuck on that goal until you can afford it. Then, you pay Giuseppi Mezzoalto $200 Simoleans for his Squirt gun to send Emperor Xizzle away with his minions. Next, you have to pay Frankie Fussili $1,000 Simoleans ( I think) to buy a plane ticket for his cousin, 'Jimmy the Neck'. Finally, you have to build the Bovine Shrine for Ava Cadavra and buy her 'Rotting Eggplant' color lipstick. It's not that expensive, I believe it's about $5 Simoleans.

Top 3 Extra Things You Can Recieve On The Sims 2
Well we all know that on this game you can milk the cows. And if you tip a cow then milk it, You get a milkshake. But I have recently found three other things you can do:

1. If you have the lion lounge or the sax lounge located in the Atrium buy a chocolate candy bar and gift a cow with it. Then the cow will turn brown. So if you milk it, You'll have Chocolate Milk. If you tip and milk you'll get a Chocolate Shake.

2. If you have the secret warehouse located in the Basement, You will meet big foot. He will start a conversation that says he just wants to be fed. So if you buy food from the saloon or lion lounge -etc.- and gift that upon Big Foot, he will bring joy to unhappy or unrestrained guest in your lobby. And the kick is, instead of waiting for them to become h..

Liscence Plate Problems
When you find a liscence plate, it should be on the wall of your Manager Suite. It might seem like you find many, but all of the liscence plates aren't on the wall. That's because you probably found a lot of the same liscnece plates. I had this problem myself!

TIP : Play the Sims 2 whenever time you can and find liscence plates at different times.

I had the problem of having found 37 liscence plates and I wondered why they weren't all on the wall. I soon realized that most were the same ones. If you scroll up you can see the liscence plate times to help you unlock 'Razor Burn' and 'Combat Mode'.

Thank You! 80P

2. So, at night, go to the desert and find the pyramid on one of the sand dunes. When you get closer to the pyramid, tap the "Admire" selection. A mummy, or Horus Menhoset IX should appear from the pyramid.

Very Very Useful!!!
Sick of being killed by abducted by aliens? Sick of faintiong because your sim smells like a fish, has done a woopsy on the floor? Well fear no further as their is a useful glitch. When you get abducted or faint,equip the super drencher and you walk twice as fast! Warning: When you walk through a door the super drencher puts itself away. You have to re-equip it.

Tips you should know (and glitches too!)
If you have Mechanical 5 and you tapped into the Penthouse and Optimum Alfred keeps throwing you out you have to wait until 6:00pm -10:00pm. (Alfred is charging his batterys during this time.)

When Optimum Alfred or Ava Cadavra (I can't remember)moves into the Penthouse you receive a call from Tristan Legend. You get the Rat cave for free! He tells you that he was once the Ratticator and has retired because doesn't have time anymore. So don't bother buying it!

Here's some info on the Yeti statue glitch.Set the time for December of next year. Buy the Yeti statue. Place him in any room except the small guest bedroom. Then about a week later he should be moving, walking, and even singing! If you get creeped out then turn off your DS!


Higher Sanity for the sims with fortune Aspiration

Bigfoot's Cousin! And how to time travel without getting an alie
In December, go to the store. (If it's not December you can time travel). In the special item of the month roped off area, there should be a yeti statue for sale. Buy it (but it is 4500 simoleans so make sure your saved up) put it anywhere you like; a good place is in the jungle room. Sometimes if you run into the room, you can see it move! One time the yeti I bought was actually walking around! It scared me so badly at first but now it's kind of funny
Also! *random thing* you can decorate your jungle room to look like a zoo! Put items like plants, the mummy sacro thing, that little caged animal thing, yeti statue, and more
Ok, now here's the good part. I'm going to tell you how to time travel without getting an annoying alien invasion!

Aim at the Aliens Easy

How To Get A Milkshake
To get a milkshake, go out of your hotel, and go down to the place where all of the cows are. Once there, go up to one and "tip" it. After "tipping" the cow, milk it. You should get a milkshake afterwards. Keep it for a quick sanity meter fill-up, or sell it for about two simoleons.
