Peeps who will move in with you:
Remember having someone live with you cuts the bills in half.

10th Rep Point

Okay this my first time so writing a hint. So,all my friends say that they can't the 10th rep point. Well I figured out how. Say your an arties and you have 9 rep points and your trying everything. Well if an artie get Sue,Dr.Moore,and Lincoln(the guy in the wheel chair)to -100 you will get 3 rep points,but if you have 9 you'll only get 1. As for Polly, only -5 works.
This was tested and it works.

On mission S when you're your pet if you try to use the gravboard it will freeze your game and you have to restart from your last save.

Cheap living

Try to live in the smallest house with barely any furniture.
If you do this you will save money and stores can provide motives alot.


Have you ever ran out of room in your house and had to sell some of it? Well don't worry any longer! Because I know how to have more than one "house" at a time
NOT A CHEAT!!! (A helpful hint)
Talk to and get REL. With everyone you can. They'll tell you somthing that refers to houses or space. For example...
Pheboe Twiddle: Tells you about a guy living in a trash can. The can next to club Xizzle in glasstown provides space for living
Ewan Wattamahe: Tells you about the docks in Sim-Quarter. Head over toward the dead-end under the bridge and "poof" you now can live under the bridge, in total privacy.
I'm sure theres lots more just get 100 REL. With everyone and see what you can squeeze out of them.

A good Suggestion

If you are one of those people who get really ticked-off you have to reset your game and you lose all your data, then hear me out!!
Be sure to save the game every time you complete a mission, the least. There are a lot of glitches in the game and if you do one of the glitches your game freezes and you have to reset it.
IT SUCKS trust me. I was playing my game for the whole freakin' day and I never saved. Then once I got into my fanboat thingy my game froze. I had to turn the power off and I lost sooo much work!!! So please, save your game as much as possible to avoid getting really mad!!!

Change furnature colour

You can change the colour of some furnature. Just press R while stood next to it.

Easy money!!!

At 6 am Heidi Shadows will come to the tunnel that leads from jail to the Dark Tree, talk to her and BUY ONLY THE ROSEBUD!!! It gives you $2000-$3000. Then go play Hoopz, then Motocross Mayhem, then Doctor Max Stat, then Soul Music. When you go down the tunnel to the jail Heidi Shadows will be there! Repeat that pattern for easy money. I already have $200,000!!!

Riches and Maxed stats

Ok, to start this off, you must beat Mission 3, get on the "list". You need 2 rep with your group (just make peeps in your group like you). Then, when you take tickets, you can't let in any richies. Save before you try this in case you mess up. Dont let in Luthor L. Bigbucks, Lottie Cash, Misty Waters, or Lily Gates. If you don't let any richies in, you will be given a golden fiddle. Dont sell it. Later on, (Mission 4, Fiddle with the red man) when you play this minigame with the golden fiddle in your pockets, your cash will double. So...max the minigame out to level 5. Now, when you want to get rich and at the same time, max your stats, be at the stump at exactly midnight. You win 6,000 some for doing it perfect. Run down into the tree just up to the north of the stump, and run into the..

You Got Everything except Home Motivation a job, and body skill learning post

Happy Simming :D !

colour change

if you go by a piece of furniture only n ur house u c an arrow click the r button nd ur colour changes

Enter Club

Go to the Club Xzzle and ask if you can enter. The password to enter is *bucket* and the person at the door will let you in.

Low rent!!!

If you want a big house like the city apartment or the skyline penthouse in Glass City, just ask someone to move in with you.
Usually Cannonball Coleman or Ewan Watahmee are the ones who will. Having someone live with you will cut your rent in half.
Hope that helps!!!!!!

Streeties Goals

Seriously annoy Daddy Bigbucks:
If you can't find Daddy Bigbucks, wait till you've finished mission 5, then go to Nutria island and he is usually there.
You can get there by the fan boat and it is located right next to Salty's Riverboat on the map.
Convince someone to join the streeties:
Get a high relationship with Ewan Watahmee.
Get the highest promotion in basketball:
Get 9 body points.
You can do this by going to the jail where there is a set of weights or you gain body points quicker by going to Misty's Gym where there is a treadmill.
After this keep on getting promoted till you get to level 5 of the Hoopz job.

Rep Groups

Depending on which rep group your with, your rep group leader will give you a gift near the end of the game (e.g. Artsie leader give you a booth to change your skin colour and hair colour, Streetie leader gives you a special stereo system that play random tunes that are played in the game, like the hospital tune).

Dancing Nutria

To find the dancing nutria, get on Gordie's boat, and go as far south as you can. There should be a small island with a bunch of wierd animals. Those are dancing nutria!

Furniture keeps Disappearing from House/Clubhouse (DS/GBA)

When that happens it means you have too much furniture placed throughout all of your living areas and some of it needs to go. If you have 1 furniture that keeps disappearing, sell 1 you don't need at the moment from any hideout/house/clubhouse, if you have 2+ then sell that many from any hideout/house/clubhouse.
So if your artsies clubhouse keeps getting rid of 4 items every time you reload the slot or step out and come back in, then find and sell 4 items from ANY other clubhouse, house or hide out that you don't care for and don't forget that when you plan to add more furniture any where else that you might need to get rid of some more from someplace else.
Now you can save and load back into your newly decorated domicile without stuff disappearing still.
