Never mind! The cheat at the bottom DOES WORK. You have to use EXACTLY, "BoolProp testingCheatsEnabled true" without quotation marks, of course. And then "shift + n". It does work. Lol

For the cheat at the bottom, does that officially work? I typed in boolprop whatever thing then pressed shift and n, but when I go to create the sim, it doesn't do anything. If it does work, please elaborate more maybe?

ok there is no cheat to get your teen sims pregnant. u have to download a mod for the game called inteenimater. u can find it at and there are plenty of videos on youtube tht can tell u how to download it and for the most part, its pretty simple. And for some of the cheats tht dont work, ur probably not missing anything. Like the censor grid one, theres not much to see lol
