Strategy Guide/Walkthrough/FAQ

  • Quick money

    While playing the game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C and enter the "klapaucius" code. Then, display the cheat prompt again and type "!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!" (up to sixty total commands may be entered).

    While playing the game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C and enter "klapaucius;:" as a code. Then, hold [Enter] so that "No such cheat" begins to flash. Keep the key held to gain up to 99 million simolians.

  • Nude Sim

    While your Sim is inside the shower and there is no pixelated censor, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C and enter the "move_objects on" code. Then, move your Sim/shower to somewhere in the house and they will be nude.

    As soon as a Sim enters the shower or bath, go to build mode and use the hand tool to remove the shower or bathtub from the bathroom. The Sim will continue to shower or bathe, but they will be bare without the pixelated censoring.

  • Quick navigation

    Hold [Alt] and press the cursor keys to navigate quickly.

  • Real music

    Note: This trick requires a music recording/downloading program. Record/download the music of your choice. After that save the music file(s) to The Sims game in the path "/Maxis/The Sims/Music/Stations/" followed by "Rock", "Classical", "Latin", or "Country". This can also be saved so that the TV plays the music by selecting the "SoundData/TVStations" path instead of "Music", then choosing "Mystery", "Romance", "Comedy", or "Action".

  • Magic garbage bag

    The following trick will save the time needed to take the garbage to the street. Buy the 30 simolian trash can. Order your Sim to empty it, then cancel the order just as they remove the bag from the trashcan. Then, order them to pick up the mess that they just created. Your Sim will return the full bag to an empty can. Repeat this each time it fills and trash will never have to be brought outside again.

  • Less bills

    Keep an unpaid bill until the mailman delivers the next set of bills. Pay the original bill when your mailbox is filled with the next set of bills. This should cause the bills inside the mailbox to disappear.

  • Easier relationships

    Create a family with a male and female adult that are of the same category (such as Virgo and Virgo) and move them into a house (or created house). Immediately after selecting live mode make them kiss approximately ten times in a row to set their relationship meter to 100. If you continue kissing the female, she should ask to have a baby.

  • Cheat Codes

    While playing the game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C to display a prompt box in the upper left corner of the screen. Then, enter one of the following codes to activate the corresponding cheat function. Note: Enter [Exclamation point] at the prompt to repeat the last cheat entered. Enter a [Semi-colon] between codes to enter multiple codes at the same time.
