Set Family Money
Whenever you crete a family they will automatically get 20,000 Simoleans. To get more than that create a family making sure that the last name does not have any spaces and then at the 'Neighborhood' screen press 'Ctrl' + 'Shift' + C and enter familyFunds as a code (example 'familyFunds Smith 100,000'). This cheat can also be used while in a lot providing you control that family.

How to have Twins
To do this enable the 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true code' and get the desired Sim pregnant. Then hold the 'Shift' key and click on the pregnant Sim so that some options appear on screen. 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.

How to get a Baby Quickly
To do this first enable the 'boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true' code. Then shift-click a Sim and choose 'Spawn' to bring up some options. Click on the'Tombstone of L and D'. 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'. Choose 'Get pregnant with...' and choose the name of the Sim who you want to be the father. When you hear a lullaby click on the 'Tombstone of L and D' again. Select 'More'. Choose 'Speed up my pregnancy'. After a short period of time you will see your Sim's belly expanding until she gives birth.

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.

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:

Cheats
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..

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).

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.

have twins
eat spaghetti every night until shes pregnant

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
Ctrl+shift+c
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 ..

Money
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

Woohoo!
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.

My Fav Cheats!

Money
Hit Ctrl which is located down at lower left of the keyboard and then hit c, a what they call it " cheat window box" will come up type in Motherlode then enter and it will give you 50,000 dollars Smile

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.

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.

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:

Filmaking
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.
