Secret - Cool things you might not know you could do.

by Benjji Aug 01, 2011

1. Give you Sims their dream career by firstly entering the cheat 'testingCheatsEnabled true'. Then Shift + Click on the mailbox of your home lot and select 'Set Career'. You can then choose any career or profession at any level for your Sim!

2. Have your Sim blow up almost any object! It's true, when your Sim reaches level 5 of the inventing skill, he or she can blow up almost any household object, even if it's in a friends house or on a community lot! (Beware of some hefty fines though...)

3. Instant money of any amount (without motherlode or kaching) Open the cheat window (Ctrl + Shift + C) and type in 'familyfunds' followed by a space, then the families name followed by another space and then the amount of money you want the household to have. This can be a bit difficult to follow so I'll include and example.

If you wanted the Goth household to have $24,000 in total, you would enter: familyfunds Goth 24000

Thanks, and enjoy :-)

Secret - Making friends easily

by cGub May 29, 2009

It's really simple to be friends with the whole neighborhood, just watch these steps:

1 : Buy a guitar then play it to learn how to play guitar.

2 : Keep playing until you reach 5/10 level which gives you the ability to "play for tips"

3 : When you have the ability, go to the park with the guitar in your inventory

4 : When you are in the park, click on the guitar in your inventory and select "play for tips"

People watching you will become your friends if you keep playing :)
I guess the more your guitar skill is, faster they become friends of you.

Code - You want something useful?

by DipDipDidoo Dec 21, 2011

First off the most IMPORTANT cheat is testingcheatsenabled. To turn this cheat on and off you must have a space and type true or false. Ex. testingcheatsenabled true. True is what turns it on and false turns it off. When this cheat is turned on, you can use another cheat called familyfunds. With this cheat you can set how much funds your active household has, if it be higher or lower. To type in this cheat correctly you have to type it in like this:

familyfunds [Family name] [Amount of Household funds]

For example: familyfunds Taylor 1000000

Be aware that the maximum amount of Simoleons you can have is 99 999 999.

Now next is places you can shift-click and use testingcheatsenabled in/on:

-On the mailbox

Options are;

*Force Visitor, [It's random for which one]

*Make Needs Static/Dynamic, [Makes Needs freeze or continue to lower]

*Set Career..., [You can choose anyone you want whatever level even, but be careful, catching up can be hard]

*Force NPC..., [Any NPC will come to your house, but if you want butlers or NPC's from Expansion Packs they will come up blank]

*Make Me Know Everyone, [Makes your Sim know everyone in that world, but I find that it's actually not all the Sims because they don't get to know the taxi drivers and all]

*Make Friends for Me, [Makes your Sim befriend around 5 other Sims automatically]

*Object... Delete It [I haven't actually tried this yet, but my Mailbox is pretty important so, yeah]

-Your sim's work place

Options are;

*Spawn Job (This is for Professions) [Spawns jobs which you can do even when it's not work hours]

*Spawn Opportunity [Spawns an Opportunity for your Sim]

I think there's one more option, but I'm not sure

-A sim in you active household

Options are;

*Edit Sim in Create a Sim [I'm pretty sure this only shows up if you have Late Night, but if you don't it still might work]

*Modify Traits for Active Sim [Allows you to change Traits of the Sim you shift-clicking on

*Trigger Age Transition [Ages your Sim up by one age (Baby to Toddler, Toddler to Child, Child to Teen and so on)]

*Favorite Music [Allows you to change the Sim's favourite music]

-A sim that's NOT in your active household

Options are the exact same things as if they were in you Active household except they don't have the modifying traits thing and have:

*Add to Active Family [Adds the Shift-Clicked person to your Active Household (Beware it glitches a bit, but it isn't too bad)

*Object... Delete It [I haven't tested this...

Secret - Disgusting Faces

by alyssa88 Jun 03, 2009

There is a glitch in character creation mode where you can make absolutely disgusting faces. The trick is that if you go to the face designing area and you 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, and then come back to the eyes, the sliders will have reset in the middle, but the eyes will still look the same. This works for all of the face adjusting tabs. Exploiting this, you can make eyes the size of dinner plates, cheekbones 4 feet long, and a HUMUNGOUS nose, to name a few.

Code - Sims 3 Baby Tips MAC and PC

by atakerer Jan 09, 2013

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.

  • Increasing chance to have baby boys
    Have a pregnant female Sim eat apples to increase the chance of having a boy.

  • Increasing chance to have baby girls
    Have a pregnant female Sim eat watermelons to increase the chance of having a girl.

  • Increasing chance for multiple babies
    To increase the chance of having twins or triplets, have one or both parents have the lifetime reward of Fertility Treatment.

  • Increasing chance to have baby girls
    Have a pregnant female Sim eat watermelons to increase the chance of having a girl.

  • Ghost baby

    Set one of your female Sim's traits to Kleptomaniac. Go to the graveyard, and have the Sim steal male remains. On the second day after putting the male remains in your home, a ghost will appear at 11:00 p.m. and disappear at 4:00 a.m. It will appear every other day. Socialize with the ghost every night it appears. When you become best friends with the ghost, it will begin appearing every night. Get the "Fertility" reward. Confess your attraction to the ghost. Ask to snuggle on the bed, and kiss him. Try for a baby every night until you start throwing up. You will now have a ghost baby that you can control.

  • 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".

    Code - Sims 3 Cheats for PC and MAC

    by atakerer Jan 09, 2013

    While playing the game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C to display the console window. Then, type one of the following codes and press [Enter] to activate the corresponding cheat function. Note: In Windows Vista you may need to press [Ctrl] + [Windows] + [Shift] + C to display the console window.

    1. unlockOutfits[ on or off] This cheat must be enable before entering CAS (create a sims)

    2. Llamas are the triangular warning signs

    3. moveObjects[on or off] This code allows you to delete objects that normally cannot be removed (for example, Sims, mailbox, garbage can). However, you cannot get those objects back. Also, when the code is used on a Sim with the "good" trait, a halo will appear on their head when you exit Buy/Build mode. It also allows you to move your Sim in or out of the house while in Buy/Build mode.

    4. [on or off] Certain cheats can be turned on or off. When you enter a cheat, ex. fullscreen and you want it to play with a fulscreen then you would enter the code like this, fullscreen[on] and if you want it off you would enter it like this, fullscreen[off] . Its the same thing with [true or false] , you only enter the cheat code with on option within the [ ]. And make sure there isn't a space between the code and the [ ].

    Most of these cheats can be used in Expansion Packs as well. For more information about the Sims 3 you can visit or looks for more Tips and Cheats in my page. Also if you want to download some houses and other stuff you can go to but you must have an account in order to download my stuff from The Exchange. I hope this helped. ~Enjoy

    Code - Wanna make some MONEY? Here's a lazy way...

    by MissLivingShadow Jul 09, 2012

    Well this cheat involves owning ALL businesses (that are allowed by the game, e.g. bookstore, theater, etc.)

    Firstly, you need to have A LOT of cash! I suggest holding: Ctrl + Shift + C (at the same time.) Then type in 'motherlode' about 10+ times.

    Secondly, go to town and just say you go to the bookstore. Click on it and select: Become a partner. After that do the same but instead , select: Become an owner. After that you can change the name and everything. It soon allows you to sell, give business to a family member or even FIRE Sims!

    Finally, Just to mention, I think you can only buy places with the (circle) colour that is the same as the bookstore (circle) colour.

    Lastly, HAPPY SIMMING!

    familyfunds [last name] [amount of cash]Gives selected amount to chosen household. Nothing over $99,999,999 will work.

    Code - Many code/hints

    by monk7monk Apr 19, 2012

    This is just a post with many things you can do on Sims that will make it a WHOLE lot easier/more fun.

    You need to use Control, Shift, and C to use the codes below.

    If you want a certain gender child born than you will have to do the following to your pregnant female:

    Eat three apples in a row for a male.

    Eat three watermelons in a row for a female.

    With testingcheasenabled true on, you can drag up relationships bars (or down) or even drag your need bars up or down as well.

    You can also Shift and click on a lot and you can teleport your active sim to that spot, or buy or build on that lot.

    If you Shift and click on the mail box you can force a visitor (a random sim in the game), force a npc (you can choose many npc characters such as the grim reaper), make needs static (good) or dynamic (bad), make all happy, Set a career to your choice and level, make friends for the active sim, and make the active sim know everyone.

    If you Shift and click on a sim (in your active household or not) you can change their traits, delete them, change their favorite music, edit them in create a sim (all options, not just what you get when changing appearance in the mirror), or trigger age transition (meaning they will automatically grow to the next stage in life).
