This cheat can also be used while in a lot providing you control that family.

How to Clone Sims

To do this enable the 'moveObjects on' code and then press 'Ctrl' + 'Alt' + F or 'Ctrl' + 'Alt' + C. Any Sim can be cloned except the Repo Man, you will not be able to control any of the clones.

How to get a Baby Quickly

If your female Sim is single invite a male Sim over. When the guest arrives click on the 'Tombstone of L and D' and select 'More'.

Click 'More' and then select the 'Debug: Force Twins' option and when your Sim gives birth you will be welcoming twins into your family.

How to get Free Groceries

Here's a way of getting groceries and not paying for them. This is done by ordering for groceries and when the man delivers the goods do not greet him. He will ring the bell two or three times and wait for you to open the door but when you do not answer he will leave the groceries at your door and not take your money.

Cheat Codes

Firstly, bring up the cheat console by pressing CTL + Shift + C at the same time. Then you can enter any of the following codes for the corresponding effect:


aging (off/on) - turns again off or on

deleteAllCharacters - Deletes all Sime in the neighbourhood

kaching - get 1000 cash

motherlode - get 50,000 simoleans

moveobjects (on/off) - moves and delete objects that you cannot normally

Just enter 'exit' to close the cheat console. You can also enter 'expand' or 'contract' to make the cheat console bigger or smaller. You can also enter 'help -all' to get a list of all cheats!

It's probably obvious, but for the stuff in brackets just write one or the other! So for example if you want to switch off the aging function, just bri..

Never Pay Bills

Whatever you do, never delete your mailbox because if you do the Repo Man will appear after three days. Instead direct your Sim to get the mail and then cancel it as soon as they get it. Now make the Sim place the bill on the ground and then using the 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true' code delete it.

Making Babies

If you want to improve your chances of getting a baby have the couple try when they are in an excellent mood and listen for a noise afterwards (not the fireworks sound).

Have twins

eat spaghetti every night until shes pregnant

Filmaking Cheats

Firstly, bring up the cheat console by pressing CTL + Shift + C at the same time. Then you can enter any of the following codes for the corresponding effect:


The following cheats require you to have post processing on, so enter this code in the cheat console first:

boolProp enablePostProcessing true

(when you have finished, just enter: boolProp enablePostProcessing false)

bloom rgb (0.0 to 1.0) Create an effect using different clours. Instead of typing 'rgb', you need to enter three values, one representing r(red), one for g (green), and one for b(blue). These values can be any number from 0-255

filmGrain (0.0 to 1.0) Created a grainy effect on the screen

letterBox (0.0 to 0.4) Adds a letterbox effect to the view.

How to have your sims have max motives all the time

First open the cheat box by pressing ctrl+shift+c all at the same time then type in "motivedecay off" without the marks your sims motives will never go down.

Really cool cheat!!

Once your on the sims, press


Then a little whote box will appear at the top, type

Boolprop testingcheatsenabled true

Then type in it: exit

Then when making a sim, if you press: Shift+n

You will debug the sims!!! You can have any skin colour, from white to green, dress in the grim reapers outfit, and many more!!!

When you are at your sims house, press Shift+n on them, and a whole list of things you can do will pop up!! Do the same on the letter box,(shift+n) and you can do even more stuff, like force a baby, seed up theyre life, kill them, by anyway you want! There are so many options. :D

If you have any questions, feel free to ask Smile

Hope this ..


When you are on a family and they are in there home on your keybord hold control then shift then c but hold it all at the same time. At the top of your screen you should see a box type in 'motherlode' then you should have more money. If not try again.

How to get abducted

Buy the $3.500 telescope. Get a sim (example. John) to stargaze. Type the cheat: BoolProp testingcheatsenabled true (this is the proper way to spell coz it works for me) while John is stargazing, shift click the telescope. It should come up with: DEBUG-Get Abducted. DO NOT CLICK: Force Error. Cross off the stargaze thing at the top. It will come up in a black screen (like the first kiss or engagment) A few hours later, John will come back and it will play that tune so you know the female sim is pregnant. But men come back and they will have an alien baby. Females do not. NOTE: This can be done on any estates. like Pleasantveiw, Veronaville, Strangetown and any of your estates.

Full Happiness and More Money

Type Ctrl Alt C then, Type in motherlode=more money or maxmotives=full happiness


Here are two hints about Sims woohooing! First make your sims woohoo then pause the game and go into buy mode. Do control shift c and type in the white box moveObjects on ,exactly as you see it. If a sims hand or foot is sticking out click on it and take it out, you can see what they do while they are woohooing. Works in a hottub too. Second. Go take a sim and their lover to a store with clothes and a changing booth. Make one sims try on clothes. Doesn't matter what kind of clothes our what outfit. Then whan that sim is in the changing both you can make the other sims click on the changing both and do Public woohoo. It adds a memory to your sim.

Display and Performance Cheats

Firstly, bring up the cheat console by pressing CTL + Shift + C at the same time. Then you can enter any of the following codes for the corresponding effect:

Display and Performance

StretchSkeleton makes your sims larger or smaller

Just enter 'exit' to close the cheat console. You can also enter 'expand' or 'contract' to make the cheat console bigger or smaller. You can also enter 'help -all' to get a list of all cheats!

Become or Cure a Vampire

To make or cure a vampire, go to the neighborhood screen and type in "boolprop TestingCheatsEnabled true". Then go to your household and shift-click a sim and choose "Make Vampire"/"Cure Vampire". I suggest using the "Raise/Lower Health and Skills" cheat for your vampire as they are hard to satisfy.

Becoming a Mermaid

Get your your Sim to become a scientist. Get them to make a potion, put their own DNA in it, some fish DNA, and drink it. Voila! You've got a mermaid!

How to make NPC looking sims!

In the neighborhood type in "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" without the marks. Then go to create a family. When you get on the Sims press shift+n if that does not work try n+shift. VOILA! Now go back and fourth 3 times to numbers 1 and 2. Now press one. There should be new skin colors under the custom button. You can also have new hairstyles and clothes! (SUPER SECRET CHEAT ONLY A FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT!!!)

To Raise and Lower Health and Skill Bars

To raise and lower the bars on your health and skills, go to the neighborhood screen and type in "boolprop TestingCheatsEnabled true". Then go to your household and hold shift and drag the bars up and down. Useful to keep toddlers ( not newborns ) asleep and keeps your sims awake for days.

Make all there life go up

Ok are you tiered of all sims complaning about how they are tiered or hungry or any of that, well its all stopping now!!! You push ... ctrl shift c then a box comes up then type in max motives (no spaces) then push enter and there whole life goes up except for enviorment cause thats depends on how good you house looks.

Turn aging on or off

You can turn aging on or off using a simple code.

To turn aging off:

-Press and hold down the Ctrl + Shift + C keys on your keyboard, then relese the keys. This will bring up a line (cheat code line) at the top of the screen where you can enter the following text: aging -off.

--Hit the Enter key.

Your Sims will no loger age. They still have an aging bar that tells you how many SimDays must pass before they age.

To turn aging on:

- Do the same steps that I refer before but replace the word "off" by the word "on".

Your Sims will now age normally.

Get Promoted The Easiest Way

First get the cheat bar up and type: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true. (without the full stop). Then press shift and click on the newspaper, you can choose a job for your sim, career rewards and promote yourself. Easy!

Free Groceries

This is another cheeky tip that will enable you to get groceries for free. To perform it you must order groceries and wait for the man to deliver the goods. Do not greet him when he arrives, he will proceeed to ring the bell two or three times and wait for you. When you do not answer the door he will place the goods there on the floor and depart not taking your money.

Quick Money

One way in which you can get money quick is if you get a friendship with a rich Sim girl (also works with a boy) and ask her to move in. When she does she will bring at least 20,000 Simoleons which will be added to your bank account. Once the money has been deposited you can make her move out and still keep the money.

Have Twins

forcetwins when the woman goes into labor

No School

Type in boolProp testing CheatsEnabled true in cheat window

Shift click on a sim and click Spawn and find senario check

Click on the bright yellow box that apears and chose add to private school

VOLIA no school. It might no work the first time so just switch panels then go back:-)

50,000 simoleons!!!

Press cnrl, shift, and c at the same time. It will bring the cheat bar up on screen. Type in... Motherlode ... Just like that. No spaces, or periods. AND!!! BOOM!!! 50,000 SIMOLEONS!!!

To give your sims full health you have to enter the cheat Move_objects on. Then you go into bye mode and click on the sim you want to give full health. You then delete your sim and exit the lot when you go back in to the lot your sim will be there with full heath. If you want to play the game without that sim for a while cos yoyu want a partener to have an affair with someone from the house and don't want to wait for the other sim to go to work then you jut don't leave the lot and that sim wont be there untill you leave and come in again. You can leave the game alltogether and come back and the sim will be there.

Save the game before you delete them or you will lose all pionts they get between then and the last time you save.

Have fun and I hope this cheat helps
