  • Food locations

      Dangleberries can be harvested in the Sproutch Couch.
      Other fruits are harvested on a Frood Tree.
      Golden eggs can be received from Chicken Checkers game.
      Fish can be harvested from the Manilla 1000 Aquarium
      Some vegetables can be harvested from the GenoLife Garden Hutch.

  • Hidden food

    There is more than just the food you can make. For example, there is food that give your skills a boost, food that helps you in love (romance Sims only for their goals), and food not in the list. For example, you can make a pizza.

  • Free harvested food

    Use the following trick if you are in need of food and have very little money. Buy an item that can have food harvested from it. Harvest the food from it, sell it back, then buy another. This will keep you from having to spend money on food. Unless there is more than one sim in your house, you do not have to worry about the other Sim wasting money buying non-harvested foods.

  • Hunger satisfaction

    The more expensive refrigerators carry more foods. They also add a bonus amount of hunger satisfaction. The more cooking skill you have, the higher the hunger satisfaction. Additionally, hunger is the one need that if left unmet can kill your Sim. To quickly fulfill your Sim's hunger even with low cooking skills, make a meal using Beef, Pork, Lamb, and Potatoes.

    If you are low on money and do not have enough to eat, sell your refrigerator, stove, etc. and buy a Fruit Punch Barrel. It will satisfy your hunger about 98%. You can just go to "Drink From Tap" and it will do the rest.

  • Aphrodisiac effect meal

    Ostrich and Passion Fruit; or Carrot, Lime, Pork, and Passion Fruit. Most things made with Ostrich or Passion Fruit will have the aphrodisiac effect, although some have a very negative effect (black hearts) that will lower your Sim's mood.

  • Energy boost effect meal

    Dangleberry, Yogurt, Strawberries, and Cherries; or Ostrich, Eel, Strawberries, and Mangosteen (expensive but works the best). Sandwiches that boost energy (also is a love dish) are Ostrich, Pork, Strawberry, Wheat Bread.

    You must have a Fish Tank. Harvest your fish and go to the refrigerator. This will not cost any money. Get the Shark, Halibut, Eel, and Squid. Go to your stove and make Capriccio. If you do not see that option, eat it raw. You will vomit, but some of your stats will increase. Note: You must take a shower after this because of the vomit. Do not do this just before your carpool arrives because you might not have time to take a shower.

    If you cannot afford beds for everyone in the house, buy the !!!!Espresso.it.supremo!!!!, which costs 450 Simoleons. Make and drink Espresso until a Sim's Energy meter is full. A Sim will not even need to sleep throughout the game if this is done.

  • Skills boost effect meal

    To boost all your Sim's stats by 3 temporarily, create a meal using Egg, Milk, Whole White Flour, and Corn Oil. Put it in a food processor, then in an oven. The meal will have sparkles coming out of it. When you eat it, all your stats will be boosted by 3 temporarily. Alternately, create a meal using Chicken, Onion, Egg, and Milk or Carrot, Egg, Milk, and Whole White Flour.

  • Sick meal

    Any meal made with Llama, no matter what the effect, any Sim that eats it will vomit.

  • Raising motives

    To raise your Social, Energy, Fun and Comfort at the same time, power nap on a couch with a television or radio on nearby and another Sim sitting beside the Sim you are controlling. Additionally, the Chess Table can also be a Paper Football Table. Have one Sim try to score on the other Sim by shooting the Paper Football through the other Sim's fingers (like a field goal). This raises Fun.

  • Easy money

    Go to Build mode, then go to wallpaper and press B to sell. Select a wall that has no wallpaper. Keep selling the wallpaper that does not exist for easy money.

    If you need some money and own a "Defective Arcade Genie Lamp" you can keep making wishes and you will get money eventually. However, the genie can also cause fire and make all the characters in the area of the lamp to pee themselves if you make him mad. When the genie is mad he will come out of his lamp with red colored smoke beneath him. However, if he is giving you something good the smoke will be purple or pinkish. It is best to perform this when you first get a house so that you can get your money and not risk losing any items you have purchased. Note: If you talk with the genie, he will also give you small advice and hints occasionally.

    Find a job in Science. You only need about three friends, level 8 Cleaning, level 4 Logic, and level 6 Cooking to make it all the way to level 8 in your career. When you get to level 8, you will make over 1,000 Simoleons per day working easy five hour days. You will work from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. If you wish to get promoted, then you must get at least five friends and some skill points must get higher.

  • Saving money

    Objectives that require buying furniture can be easily purchased on low ends. Just buy it to complete the goal, then delete and get your full money back.

  • Finding buried treasure

    A Sim can only use the Metal Detector in Direct Control mode. It is possible to find money, Dangleberries, monkey idols, and bottle caps.

  • Avoid being fired

    If you miss your ride to work on your second day of missing work, before it says you have been fired, quickly find another job by looking in the newspaper or the Internet. Once you have avoided the call to get fired, you can change back to your previous job without being demoted and getting deducted skill points.

  • Forced friends

    If you need friends, get a Hot Rock Hot Tub, or move to Tranquillity Falls where they already have one. Invite over who you want to be your friends and get them in the hot tub. Then, put objects around it so they cannot get out. Leave them in there long enough and they will become your friends. Note: Get out before your hunger goes all the way down or else they will die.

  • Getting married

    Get your Friendship level up to 80 or 90. If the background is very red and blurry, select "Be on" the socialize menu and go to a bed. Select "Relax", then choose the bed again. Select "Woo whoo" once, then press X to get out of the bed. Select "Socialize" and if you are in love, select "Propose" and hope that the other Sim says yes.

  • Business career

    To master the Business career you must have Body at level 9, Logic skill at level 9, and Charisma skill at level 7.

  • Business career bonuses

    When you get to level 6 in a job you can ride in a limo. When you get around level 9 you will get to fly in a helicopter.

  • Live by yourself

    Get a job for everybody that lives with you. Then, enable the "Advance time by 6 hours" code and send them to work. Before they come back, enable the "Advance time by 6 hours" code again. Do this every day before the people come back. Note: You cannot do this when you are a ghost.

  • Secret room

    Follow these basic steps to make a room where a Sim can just hang out. First, make your house simple with a bedroom with beds one square apart against the wall that has the outside on the other side. Then, put a simple closet door between the two beds. Make that door go into a room that is 4x4 squares apart. On the opposite side of the closet door, put another door, and cover it up with a tall bureau on one side and a bureau one square in front. Then, make a spooky hallway that leads to a fun, secret room. Finally, put a deck floor for the hallway, rug for the closet, and rug for the hallway. Also, do not put lights in the closet or scary lights in the hallway. Note: Do not over stuff the secret room or there will be a fire.

  • Christmas tree

    Delete some walls so the game thinks it is outside. Get a pine tree and put it inside.

  • Know when neighbors pass

    To know when there is going to be a neighbor passing your house, look in the street to the far right. When a neighbor is going to appear, you will see the shadow of a person with its arms and legs out on the right of the street.

  • Controlling a dead Sim

    Kill your Sim. There are a lot of ways to do this, but starting a fire is the fastest. Once your Sim is dead, switch to direct control (if not already in it). As a dead Sim you can walk through walls and talk to Sims. Terrorize, Wail, and Possess are social options dead Sims can do. However, you cannot actually possess Sims out of Social mode. These social options have no effect on other Sims, but are amusing. You can also challenge the Grim Reaper in fiddle challenge. You have an unlimited number of chances to try this. If you win, your Sim will come back to life. You can also pay the Grim Reaper 100 Simoleons for a Back To Life Ticket.
