More Money Faster than motherlode

If you have a sim faliy that doesn't have enough money to buy thte house you desire, and you need to save time ot you don't feel like wasting time by typing in motherlode a thousand times, than listen. Go to the neighborhood view, and type in (familyfunds) (family's last name) (amount you want).

Ex. Your family's last name is Sim, and you want $9785758. it should look like (familyfunds) (sim) (9785758)

Note: The maximum is 9999999

Game Unlockables

Game Hints

Alien Abduction

If you want your sim abducted by aliens just enter "boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true" with no quotes then click on the picture of the sim you want abducted. Click on a telescope while holding shift and it should say some wierd letter combo and abduct. Click on that a Viola! You can do this day or night!

Buying expensive houses

Use the following trick if you want your average Sim to buy a house that is above his or her means. First start a family or load one, and find an empty lot. Move the Sim on that lot. Enable the motherlode code a few times, just to the point where you can buy the expensive house. Exit the lot, but save the game. Then, evict (move out) the family. Notice that your family is displayed at the "Choose Family" window. You can now buy any house desired.

Never pay bills

Never delete your mailbox. If you do, the Repo Man will appear after three days. Just simply direct your Sim to get the mail. Then, cancel it as soon as they get it.. Let them put it on the ground or another surface. Then, use the boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true code to simply delete the bills.

Enter build or buy mode with the moveObjects on code enabled. Place the bills in front of the fire with more bills or an object next to fireplace. Make sure to completely surround the fireplace. Have a Sim light a fire. Get the Sims out of the room and sell the door. This trick is not the easiest nor the safest, but it usually works.

Enter build or buy mode with the moveObjects on code enabled. Then, simply delete the bills. Unfortunately this does not work with homework.

The easiest way to get rid of bills, homework, and repo men is to enable the boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true code and forcing some errors. To do this, after enabling the code, hold [Shift] and click the bills, repo man, homework, etc. and select "Force Error" from the menu. A message will appear that an error has occurred. There are three buttons marked "Cancel", "Reset", and "Delete". Click "Delete".

Never work

If you do not want to have the hassle of going to work every day, you must have a Sim with the Fortune aspiration. Get your Creativity skill high enough and they will then constantly get satisfaction from selling masterpieces, which will be easy if you have full Creativity. To start out, just buy the bare minimum until you get your Creativity to maximum. You can make as much as 1,500 Simoleons per day by painting. The best part is that you can work on your own schedule.

No job

When you first move into your new house (especially if you have any kids or plan to, or if you have the Popularity, Knowledge, Family, or Romance Aspiration), do not get a job. If your Sim has a Family Aspiration, then keep it at home to potty train, teach to work, or talk your toddler. If you have Romance, you must keep up with them woohoos. Knowledge may require you to get a job, but it probably will not be a power want. Popularity aspirations will keep you home making friends (unless they work); stay at home and take care of your Sim, their family, and their aspirations.

Game Glitches

Have a weird-looking house

First create a family of two, so that they can communicate and fill their social bars. Next, move them in a medium-sized home. Then, build them a house but do not furnish it. Them activate the "moveallobjects on" code and then purchase a painting. What is cool is that you can move the painting where ever you want in the home without hanging it up on the wall. Keep purchasing and you should have a weird-looking home. Enjoy your new weird-looking home!
