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.

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..........

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

Walk in mid air for a short time

To walk in mid air for a short time go to the 2nd floor lobby go through the white doors(deluxe guest room) and go to the bathroom there will be some stairs go up them go onto a lege run off and your guy will be running in mid air for a short time my sister didn't believe me when I told her about it

Phone people, you can phone anyone see where they are, cheer them up, romance, or calm them down.

Buy things,You can buy things from the Strangetown Store (located next to the Saloon) once in a while there are different items in the Store. (Check maybe every two days.)

Play the lottery, there is a lottery machine inside the Stangetown Store,If you get three pictures you win! There are three prices ($1, $5 and $10.) The cheaper the ticket the less money you win if you get three pictures. I'm not to sure how much money each are when you win. But I think you get about $25..

Chocolate Milkshakes

First you give the cow chocolate as a gift. Then you tip the cow. Then you milk it and it will give you a chocolate milkshake. If you only want chocolate milk then don't tip the cow.

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!

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!

1) take the sims game out of your ..

Aim at the Aliens Easy

To kill them easy just simply use the aimer to get locked onto a alien, note: you must bevery close to lock onto your target.

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.

Getting Cool Stuff

If you go to 12/31/2099 you can get a holiday yetie stachu I probly spelled stachu wrong but oh well and other cool stuff. I'm working on finding the hott tub so I'll post when I find it.

Living with other sims forever!!!

Hey everyone!!! I just thought this was a cool cheat that I figured out: if are in love with one of the other sims on the game that CAN be checked into the hotel, follow these steps!!!

First fast-forward time about 10 or so years into the future.

Next find a day when your crush is waiting to be checked in.

Check them into your favorite room (I check them into the penthouse, which is where I "live." I mean, really, who would prefer the managers suite over the penthouse?)!!!

Rewind time back to the year you had before.

Talk to the Concierge and see the regestry.

If it worked your Sim should not be checking out for another few thousand days!!!


Voice Malfuction

Here's a cheat involving a voice malfunction between Ara Fusilli and Dusty Hogg. NOTE The Deluxe Guest room must be built in order to do this.

1. Make sure Ara Fusilli wants to check in

2. Make sure that the Deluxe Guest room is available.

3. Check Ara into that room

4. Then, when she isn't in the room, take her sink

5. Wait until she calls you

6. DO NOT ANSWER! Wait until she leaves a message

7. Listen to her message and she will sound angry on the phone, not only that, she will have Dusty Hogg's voice!


Here is how you can make chocolate milk and milkshake when you milk a cow :D

Note- you have to have the sax lounge to do this

Step 1: Go to the lounge and go to Cannonball Coleman (the barman) buy some chocolate.

Step 2: Then go to where the cows are (opposite the jail).

Step 3: You need to go up to one of the cows and as a gift, give it a bar of chocolate, this will turn the cow brown.

To make chocolate milk: You then (after following step 1, 2 and 3, need to milk the brown cow and you get chocolate milk Smile

To make chocolate milkshake: after following step 1,2 and 3, you then have to tip the brown cow and then (before it gets back up) milk it. This will give you choc..

Build Rooms Faster

After you buy the rooms you want (get as many as you can) save. Change the time on the ds 8 hours later. Then go on the game and !BANG! The rooms are built.Ready to go.beware the alians will invade. Smile

How do you change the time? And recharge metal detector

I was reading some of the cheats, and a lot of them said to change the time. I was wondering how to change the time? I was also wondering how to recharge the metal detector? Thanks!

How to see the cute ghost


Go to 06/30/2054 and buy the painting of the cute ghost and put it in your room. Then wait a bit and some one will phone you and say that they need rescuing from a ghost. Find the person and the ghost will be there. Quickly get out your hoover and walk into the ghost. It will be sucked up the hoover but you will still see it in other places

Cool stuff

I found some cool stuff at my shop while I was expirimenting with the dates:

Month/dd/yyyy = items

07/30/2099 = plasma tv.

06/30/2054 = the painting of the cute ghost.

06/30/2060 = a regular blue shower.

06/30/2065 = some really cool stuff.

05/29/2070 = some more cool stuff.

I'm looking for a hot-tub

Xx-miss-alone-xX :X

Walk Faster

Sometimes your Sim will walk like it is constipated. This is normally after the aliens have beamed you into their saucer. Walking like this is very slow and takes a while to recover. While your Sim is recovering, you can hold the Water Blaster. When your Sim is holding this, it will walk or run normally.

Where to put the sarcopgagus

Go to your room and click on the button below the triangle that lets you move things. Then click on the sarcopgagus and then the hand to the right of it then you can move that like any other type of furniture to whatever location

Deluxe Dilemma

TIP: Becareful when buying Deluxe versions of items. Once you use them, they tend to get dirtier than the non- deluxe items. You may have to scrub the shower or toilet more often than usual.

TIP: Keep an eye out for free items. When someone tells you that they swapped out the items in their room for different colors, there is usually a hidden item within the walls. To retrieve the item, you must have something inside your "pocket". Tap on the 'move' or'pick up' selection and it will take you to a screen where you can move your guest's furniture. If you see a square in an unusual place, that's the item the guest left you. You can take it and put it in the Manager Suite, you can find a place and put it in their room, or you can sell it or put it in another g..

Many Money Makers

There are many ways to make money on the Sims. If you are stumped and can't find a fun way to make money here's how.

1. Guests sometimes say someone stole their furniture from their room. Go find it and ring it back to them, they will pay you about 1.000 -2.000.

2. Milk the cows out by the cow shack. You can sell the milk at the Strangetown General Store. Unfortunately, the milk only sells for $2 a glass.

3. You can mix music in the Lion Lounge or the Sax Lounge. The more Creativity Skill POints you have, the more money you make. I think you make $5 a minute.

4. Sell flyers.If you go to the lobby,there will be a flyer holder. Your guests will buy the flyers and they sell for about $12 a flyer.


Spend, Spend,Spend

In The Sims 2, you send up spending more money than you asked for. This is a list of the things that you will most likely spend money on.

1. City Hall- rooms

2. Strangetown Store- items for your room

3. Frankie Fusilli- 1.000 (ticket for Jimmy the Neck.

4. Frankie Fusilli- Vault 3.000

5.Ava Cadavra- Bovine Shrine

6. Ava Cadavra- Rotting Eggplant Lipstick

7. Saloon- food

8. Optimum Alfred- Battery Pack 1.000

9. Hotel- Bills

10.Guests- When they ask for something

11. Guests- When they ask you to bail them out of jail
