The Sims 2
Testing cheats mode
While playing the game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C to display the console window. Enter ” boolProp TestingCheatsEnabled true ” to activate testing cheats mode. This is a very powerful cheat that enables many new things. In Create A Sim, after enabling this code, go into debugmode by pressing [Shift] + N before making a Sim. You now have the following new things in Create A Sim: skin tones, clothing, and some other options such as viewing the skinfilenames. In the game itself, after enabling this code, hold [Shift] and left click on a Sim to have lots of options, such as changing clothes, make your Sim fat or thin, set their aspiration level, etc. This code also can spawn some interesting items, such as the tombstone of L(ife) and D(eath), and family members.
Enable the ” boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true ” code, then go onto a different family. A strange code will appear at the top right hand corner. If you go onto the Sims’ needs, you can click on each one and drag it up or down, whichever desired. You can also increase the skill points of your Sims in the same way. This is useful if you want a promotion, if your Sim is depressed, if you are teaching a toddler to walk, etc. You can also hold [Shift] and click on a Sim. Click on “More”, then “Spawn” and create the Tombstone of L and D. You can click on this, then “More” then “Make everyone here friends with me”, which helps if you need friends to get promoted, or to complete an aspiration task.
To fill your skills to the maximum level instantly, enable the ” boolProp TestingCheatsEnabled true ” code. Then, pause the game without going into build or buy, and select your skills icon. When you are in the tab with the skill meter click and drag the pointer over the desired skill bar to raise it.
Gain skill without losing money
Use the following trick if you do not have a lot of money and want to buy goods or an object to gain more skill to get a promotion. Buy the particular goods that will help you for a promotion (for example, an exercise machine, or book shelf) and study the knowledge (for example, cleaning). When you get a skill point, delete the item that you bought (sell it before 24 hours have elapsed). You will a get full refund back from that object. If you sell after 24 hours, you will get less money. By doing this, you will gain your skill without losing your money.
Buy expensive houses
Use the following trick if you want your average Sim to buy a house that is above his or her means. First start a family or load one, and find an empty lot. Move the Sim on that lot. Enable the ” motherlode ” code a few times, just to the point where you can buy the expensive house. Exit the lot, but save the game. Then, evict (move out) the family. Notice that your family is displayed at the “Choose Family” window. You can now buy any house desired.
Get a friendship with a rich Sim (girl recommended). Ask them to to move in. The Sim will bring at least 20,000 Simoleons with them. The money will be added in your account. Then, you can make him or her move out.
When you first move into your new house (especially if you have any kids or plan to, or if you have the Popularity, Knowledge, Family, or Romance Aspiration), do not get a job. If your Sim has a Family Aspiration, then keep it at home to potty train, teach to work, or talk your toddler. If you have Romance, you must keep up with them woohoos. Knowledge may require you to get a job, but it probably will not be a power want. Popularity aspirations will keep you home making friends (unless they work); stay at home and take care of your Sim, their family, and their aspirations.
Never pay bills
Go to buy or build mode and use the hand tool. Pick up the mailbox and delete it.
Order for groceries and wait for the man to deliver the goods. When he arrives, do not greet him. He will ring the bell two or three times and wait for you. When you do not answer, he will place the goods there and not take your money.
Select a baby
Go into buy mode. Enable the ” moveObjects on ” code and click on the baby you wish to select. Without deselecting the baby, use the ” moveObjects off ” code. Still without deselecting baby, press [F1] to enter live mode. You will now be able to view the babies needs. The baby can only perform one interaction. Click on it, and for a moment a menu will appear that says “Grow Up”. If you want an alien child or any child that looks like your family when you adopt them, go to the certain family, and delete the entire the family except for the baby by using the ” moveObjects on ” code . The social worker will arrive and take the baby. Go back to your other family and adopt a baby. You will get the same child that got taken away.
Build toddler skill four times as fast
Wear a Thinking Cap and feed Smart Milk to your toddler.
Use the following trick to decorate your house with custom art. Your Sim must have a Creativity level of 5 and be able to paint a still life. Have your Sim paint, and a frame will appear. Center it on what you want to paint. You can also “paint” something that is not in the game by pressing C to pause the game, then press [Alt] + [Tab] to switch outside the game. Start a graphics program, such as Windows Paint, then load the original captured in-game picture at “c:mydocumentseagamesthesims2storytellingsnapshot.bmp”. Then, open the picture or image that you want to replace it with, and put in your game. You must resize your custom picture to match the same resolution as the “snapshot.bmp” file. Copy your custom picture on to the “snapshot.bmp” file, then save it. Press [Alt] + [Tab] to switch back to the game. Your Sim will begin painting your custom picture.

Copy your own MP3 files to the “c:mydocumentseagamesthesims2music[ radio station ]” folder. Start the game
