Cheat mode

From: Patricktei

Enabling cheats will disable challenges and achievements. However, the game gives you the option to save your neighborhood before the cheats were activated to resume from there later. Once you load your family in a house or location, press Start. Then, hold RB + RT + LB + LT' and the cheats instructions will tell you that Spot is now available under "Decor-Miscellaneous". Place him in your lot and all cheats are readily available for use.

Building a basement

From: jomari

On a new lot, put down staircases to lower the terrain. Go to the bottom of the first one. Miss out one tile and put down another staircase. Repeat this once more and you should have three staircases. Delete the staircases. Use the "Level Terrain" tool to level the terrain from the lowest tile. Set it as big or small as desired. Using the "Straight Line Wall" tool, build walls around this hole so that there are walls pressed up against hills. Build the room above so that it covers the entire basement. Cover around the house with the "Foundation" tool; all the slopes should be covered up. Place one tile in the top floor then create a staircase leading down to the basement. Make two or more foundation blocks at the front of the house, and place a staircase leading up them.

Learn four skills at once

From: sam77

Read "Easy Cooking, Gardening, or Fishing Skill" by Tony Ortale. Keep repeating Tony's steps until each skill channel has been viewed. The Sim will keep learning the three skills as he or she goes on about their daily life, and four when doing skill activities.

Avoid Death

From: djkoce

Go to Pleasant Rest Graveyard. Near the gate is a bush called "Death Flower Bush". Harvest the flower from it and keep it in your Sim's inventory. If you die, that Sim will give that flower to the Grim Reaper and be resurrected. Although the flower will not reappear there again, if your Sim has level 7 Gardening they can plant the Unknown Special Seeds found in the graveyard and some other places that have a chance to grown as a Death Flower. Note: Having the Green Thumb trait to revive the plant may help.

Ghosts in your house

From: yusico12

Start by going to the graveyard. Once there, click all the tombstones. With any of them that say "Pick Up" or "Take", do so. Once you are sure you have all the tombstones you can get, return to your house. Place them outside 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".
