Cheat Codes

Cheat mode

Press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + C during game play to display a prompt in the upper left corner of the screen. 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. Additionally, most of the codes will only work with the unpatched version of the game.

Enable cheat mode and enter rosebud ; ; or klapaucius ; ; as a code.

Once you reach 9,999,999 simoleons, it will stay that way for the rest of your game.

Easier repeat cheats

To make it easier to repeat a code, such as the money code, first enter the code, then make a mistake after what you have repeated. For example enter the money cheat, then enter !;!;!;!;!;!: (note the colon at the end instead of a semi-colon). The game will respond "Sorry, invalid cheat" but you will have the amount that you requested. When you click "OK", the cheat will still be at the prompt. Press [Enter] again and click "OK" for another repeat of the cheat you entered. Note: The game will exit if too much money is accumulated.

Hidden cartoon

When you insert the game CD-ROM and it asks whether you want to start or visit various web sites, move the pointer over the gray Maxis symbol in the bottom left corner. It will change into colored text. Click on it to see the hidden cartoon.

The person in the cartoon is Will Wright, the creator of SimCity, The Sims, etc. riding the electric scooter he uses to get around his office building.

Information window

Hold [Alt] + [Shift] and move the mouse. This will open a window that will display the room number, elevation, and similar information.

Multiple game data

Create a folder in the Sims folder called "User Data". Warning: Do not overwrite the current folder or you will destroy your program and be required to reinstall. You must move the old one to another folder. Copy (do not shortcut) your files to the new folder to your new one. In your new game, delete your existing families and their houses. Keep them in your existing game. You now have multiple game data and can swap folders when desired.
