The only way to get this is if you have a upgrade to sims 3 it could be any one. THIS IS NOT A LIE. so you open the cheat menu then, you type [testingcheatsenabled true] with the space, then you open it again and type [buydebug on] with the space. Thats How.
Tons of money and lifetime points!
Just so everyone knows, this cheat is ONLY for PC. To get a ton of money, first, go on your keyboard and click Ctrl-Shift-C. Then, when the little blue box shows up at the top, type in "Motherlode". When you click Enter, you will instantly get 50,000 simoleons! Keep doing that for as long as you want, and you will have a LOT of money! Now, for the lifetime points. On the little "menu" type box, there is sections for how many people you know, and what your relationships are; needs, inventory, career, etc. Click on the little chest icon where your lifetime wish will be there, with how many lifetime points that you have. Between the chest picture and the box with your amount of lifetime points, there is a little blank space. Click Ctrl. Hold it, and click the blank area as fast as you want (preferably left and right click at the same time). As you do that, you will see your lifetime points SKYROCKET!!!!!! Thanks for reading! :) Have a nice day!!!!!! :D
Easy lifetime points
When you start the game in the main menu open the cheat console type in testingcheatsenabled true and start your game, then go to life time rewards tab and drag your cursor to the middle of the treasure box and numbers and click while pressing ctrl mutiple times , in no time you'll have hundreds of lifetime points.
Start writing novels on your computer. Write fiction novels as they take the least amount of time. They will not bring you too much Simoleons. When you write, your skill will automatically advance. If your skill is high enough you will be able to write more novel types/genres. The most money can be made from "Romance Novels". You will get royalties for six weeks once you finish a book. With the "Writing" skill maxed out, you can make about 40,000 Simoleons every week, which is more than the 34,800 Simoleons you can get by purchasing all neighborhood businesses, and takes less time to achieve. In three game weeks you should have a very high speed writing, 9 or 10 novels as best sellers and 100,000 Simoleons.
To get new clothes, you must first have to buy a dresser from "Buy Options". Once there click "Plan Outfit". You can put a total of three different clothes for each type (formal, every day, athletic, etc.)
Instead of using a cheat code to toggle "aging on" and "aging off" like in The Sims 2, you can de-activate the age in "Options", then "Game Options".
Buy a guitar. Play it to learn how to play guitar. Keep playing until you reach 5/10 level, which gives you the ability to "Play For Tips". When you have that ability, go to the park with the guitar in your inventory. When you are in the park, click the guitar in your inventory and select "Play For Tips". People watching you will become your friends if you keep playing. The higher your guitar skill, the faster they will become friends with you.
No matter how many times you use an object, if you sell it in the same day you can get all your money back. If your Sim is poor and needs body points or something else, buy a body machine and keep selling it back to get a refund of all your money.
Put your own music on the radio
Place the desired .MP3 files in the "/MyDocuments/EAGames/TheSims2/Music/<radio station> folder. Start the game, go to "Options" menu, select "Music Settings", then choose radio station. Select which songs you want the radio to play.
Protection from Death
Go to Pleasant Rest Graveyard, and near the gate, there is a strange bush called a "Death Flower Bush" - Harvest the flower from it. Keep this flower in your sim's inventory, and if you die, you will automatically offer this flower to the Grim Reaper, who will ressurect you in exchange for it. This flower will not reappear, but there are Unknown Special Seeds (requires level 7 Gardening to plant) dotted about near the graveyard (and a few other places) which may grow another Death Flower (and sometimes more if your Sim has the Green Thumb trait to revive the plant.)
To get two Sims married, have your active Sim do tons of romantic interactions on them. Be sure to mix it up - Sims get bored if you use actions repetitively.
It takes a LOT more time for relationships to grow. Once past the first batch of interactions, you will find interactions to go steady. Then later, marriage. Your Sim can get married in a "Private Wedding" interaction with the other Sim, or at a Wedding Party.
Play with a ghost
Hello there, About one week ago I was playing sims 3 and I found a way that you can play with a ghost, even during the day. With a young adult female with a kleptomaniac trait go to The Crumplebottom property and pick up "Erik Darling's grave". The grave will then be on your inventory and place it somewhere else. Buy your own home and place the grave anywhere in your yard. Daily at nights Erik Darling will come out "12:00am-5:00am."Be his friend and then best friend, and last but not least have a romantic Interest with the ghost. (Note)When I tried this my female young adult was already married and had a teenage daughter. I would flirt and try to have a romantic intrest with the ghost while her husband went to the gym at nights One you have a romantic interest with the ghost "Try for baby." Get pregnant by the ghost, and after the days of your pregnancy your baby will come out just fine.(No ghost baby). Before she had her baby she got a call on her cell phone from the science facility; offering an experiment to bring the remains or grave to try to revive the diseased person. (Note)She had her baby and then I took the grave to the facility, and the experiment did not work. After it did not work Erik darling shows up on my screen and now I can play with him. Also it says that next time you have to pay for that experiment to be done againYes! He is still a ghost.
You'll need the Kleptomaniac perk.
All you do is go out at night and you can steal things from peoples yards and if you know friends you can knock on their door and once they invite you inside you can steal stuff when they aren't looking.
The only downside is that you can only steal a limited amount of things per day and when you do steal your Sim will steal something random from around the area (I was trying to steal this guys car but my Sim picked up this hay bail next to it, then the lamp post outside of his house)
*A cheap trick is to enter build mode and on a fresh lot place a bunch of expensive items that you want for your Sim and just head over to that lot to steal the items* This is cheap though and what I would consider an unfair advantage.
Destroying the Grimm reaper
Well, I was having fun aging people to their afterlife. So when I saw the Grimm reaper, I made him age too. But I didn't want to age him too much, so I deleted him. Then my friend who was dead sat on the couch as a ghost since nobody can take her to the sims' underworld. It was fun, but the next time I got on the sims 3they were gone. It is cool for the amount of time you get to see it. So have fun.
Easy change your last name to goth and buy a gothic mansion at buy mod and then if the fire code says fire violation than click b and then add more rooms and furniture if you want and then click your sim and click change clothes and then change to formal wait a few sim minutes and ta da you get a gothic mansion. PS only works for wii and pc.
How to have a ghost baby on the Sims 3 base game
- Make two married sims.
- Keep them very happy, keep all their needs high.
- Decide which one to kill by either drowning or hunger.
- If the sim is to die of hunger, keep every need up (bladder fun etc.) except hunger. Make sure the person dying is as happy as possible. (I know that sounded weird)
- If the sim is drowning again keep every need up. (Except energy) make a small pool and make them swim. Go into buy mode and sell the ladder.
- Let the sim die! (I know it's harsh)
- Wait for the other spouse to get the "Oh My Ghost" opportunity. Accept it and complete it and soon your sim will be a playable ghost!
- Again, keep them very happy, then cuddle on bed and "Try For Baby" until you hear the nursery music indicating that your sim is pregnant.
- Eat 3 watermelon for a girl and 3 apples for a boy. Watch a lot of kids corner on tv for twins or triplets.
- Have the baby! If it's a sim and not a ghost you have two options, kill off the baby and make it a playable ghost with the Oh My Ghost opportunity, or just try again. There is a one out of two chance of getting a ghost so unless your really unlucky you should get one next time!
- Note: This is in the base game. If you wanted a ghost baby from the start just install the supernatural expansion. I rather do it this way.
How to get past repoman
If you get the notice that the repoman's coming, don't lock the doors or put a fence around your
house. I tried that. He walked right through the fence. However, if you put everything in your
family inventory, he won't take it. Just make sure to get everything. I left a few lights in
the house and he took those. I don't know if he'll take windows.
Ghosts in your house
Go to the graveyard, click on all the tombstones, and take all possible tombstones. Return to your house, and place them somewhere in your backyard. You now have a 70% chance of a ghost or two, or even a whole party of ghosts visiting your house each night. To improve your chances, write in the epitaph "Here Lies [Sim's name], The One Who Returns".
Learn to play the Guitar Faster
Go to the mail box and shift click it it'll come up with loads of options.. Then click MAKE NEEDS STATIC - This stops your needs going down so you can keep playing the guitar til you get to Level 10.
Fed up of school
If your fed up of sending your sim to school then go to options on the lefthand side and click edit town,click bulldoze and delete the school. then any sims in the child age - the teenager age will not have to go to school and they will not get told of for it either.
Electronic Arts game references
Have the video game system and have your Sims play it. Zoom in on the television to see that the games they are playing are various Electronic Arts titles.
Painting Spore and More
When your Sim finally reaches the top level in painting, they begin to paint masterpieces. Look at the paintings for some nice suprises. One is an image of a Spore creature.
Have a Sim call for pizza. When the pizza delivery man arrives, do not accept the pizza! The delivery man will eventually leave the pizza on the front porch, and it will never get stale. You can stack as many pizzas there as you want. If your Sims get hungry, just tell them to get a pizza from the front porch.
There is a glitch in Create-A-Sim mode that allows to you to make very strange faces. Go to the face designing area. Select a face part such as the eyes and max out all the sliders one way or the other. Then go to a different face part and select one of the predesigned parts. Return to the eyes. The sliders will have reset to the middle, but the eyes will still look the same. This works for all of the face adjusting tabs. You can then continue to max out the size of the eyes and repeat. You can make eyes the size of dinner plates, very long cheekbones, huge noses, and more.
Easy Cooking skill
This trick requires a television with a cooking channel and a video game system. Have a Sim sit down and watch television. Switch the television over to the cooking channel so that the Sim can start earning his or her skill point. Then have a second Sim go over and start playing video games. You notice that although the television is displaying video games, the first Sim still has the skill meter above their head. Allow this Sim to sit there for as long as they please until they decide to do another activity of their own. After that, the skill meter should stay above their head until you start another cooking skill activity. As an added bonus, you can train two skill points at once. For example, work out and both the Athletic and Cooking skills will continue to rise.
Free bookcase skills
Buy a bookcase, then have your Sim begin to study. Interrupt the action so that the book is placed on the ground. Sell the bookcase. The book can now do everything the bookcase could have done for free.
Cooking Skill Exploit
This glitch requires a TV with a cooking channel and a video game system. First, have one Sim sit down and watch TV. Switch the TV over to the cooking channel so that the Sim can start earning its skill point. Now, have a second Sim go over and start playing video games. You should now notice that although the TV is displaying video games, the first Sim still has the skill meter above its head! Simply allow this Sim to sit there until it decides to go do another activity on its own. After that, the skill meter should stay above its head until you start another cooking skill activity. As an added bonus, you can train two skill points at once! i.e., Go work out and both the athletic and cooking skills will continue to rise.
Guitar freaks Glitch
If you want your Sim to master the guitar skill and learn all of the songs, Don't just play the guitar to reach level 10 because you want be able to learn new songs from books. To learn the new songs just reach level 5 in the guitar skill, then put a level 5 book in your sims inventory and click on the guitar and select new song (to learn it). When you reach level 6, do the same thing again for level 6 books. Keep repeating this process until you reach level 10 and your Sim will now know every song you've taught it.
Well one day i was making two sims makeout on the bed when a old lady reads a book on the bed when my guy gets up the girls arms follows my guy and then i make the girl get off the bed she floats in the same postion as on the bed when you move the camera away and back at her shes somewhere else.
P.s. your sim will be farther away if you keep the camera away from your sim longer.
