Hint: Get A Life Chapter 3: Throw a raging
Turn on the Stereo. Then, turn on the Bug Zapper. .
Set the Aromaster Whifferpuff Gold to any smell. Next, order pizza
or cook some hamburgers and invite the party members. When they
arrive, start eating. After they are done eating, go in the hot
tub or watch television. Make sure you have the best television,
or the hot tub that seats four people. After a while a screen
appear that reads "This party rocks!". You can now get
During story mode you can throw a raging party by having one of
your Sims play the guitar. Everyone will come into the room and
clap or boo the person that is playing. After 30 seconds a message
about you having a great party will appear.

should be easy. Serve Dinner, call friend to throw party, greet
one person (do not talk, just greet), then play guitar. People
should either listen to you play, or eat the food. It should not
take more than two hours to get a raging party afterwards.
Hint: Get A Life Chapter 3: Gay Dudley:

meter. After doing this they will kiss and feel comfortable around
Hint: Get A Life mode: Job promotions:
When you are living with your mom, build up your stats
until they are full. To do this, enable the "Free mode"
code and buy everything for studying Cooking, Mechanical, Body,
Logic, Creativity, and Charisma. After your stats are full, make
about eight family friends. An easy way to do this is to get your
friendship level with someone to about 75, until you can hug them.
Continue to hug them until the rating is 100. After you have full
stats and eight friends, move out and you will not have to worry
about job promotions, and should get through levels quickly. Note:
The higher your friendship rating is with someone, the longer
you can go without calling them. You must have family friends
to get promoted.
To get a promotion, your Sim must have at least one green bar,
the correct number of friends, and all the skills needed for that
If you have a Sim who works, have another Sim that stays at home
and looks after the house. When you get to the stage where the
working Sim must have a friend to get promoted, the other Sim
can find a friend during the day. By doing this, all the Sims
in the family can get a family friend and the working Sim can
get promoted without having to make a friend when they are supposed
to be keeping their mood up. This may require few days and a few
visits by the friend. Keep calling them and inviting them over
and eventually you will have a friend.
Hint: Get A Life mode: Job demotions:

red bars and not have the correct number of friends.
Hint: Get A Life mode: Easy level passes:
When you start the first real level, sell all your

Hint: Aromaster Whifferpuff Gold:
The Aromaster Whifferpuff Gold costs 2,500 Simoleons
and is a good item to get your Sim's moods up quickly. Even though
it might break a few times, it is one of the top items that a
thief will go for. It has four settings:
Peppermint and Juniper: Increases Comfort
Lavender and Majoram: Increases Fun
Juniper and Rosemary: Increases Energy
Rosemary and Peppermint: Increases Room
You can use multiple Aromaster Whifferpuffers at time. The best
way to use it is, before you go to sleep put it on the second
setting. When you awake, your Sim will be in a very good mood,
with at least three green bars as he/she has a full energy bar
and a full fun bar.
Hint: KraftKing Wood Working Table:
You can put Mom to work building Gnomes with the KraftKing
woodworking table. Any money you make from this home crafts project
can be pocketed when you leave.
Hint: Making the Teppan Teki cooking table
Put chairs around where you want the food to be served.

to wherever a chair is at the table. Also when that Sim cooks,
other Sims will sit at the table, watch the food get cooked, and
talk to one another.

Hint: Easy money:
Enable the "Free mode" code, then go to your
house and buy a lot of expensive items. After that, save then
restart your system. Do not enter the code again, then sell your
items back for more money. The best item to do this with is the
Monkey Butler Tree, which is worth 15,000 Simoleans.
Enable the "Free mode" code, then move your Sims into
the cheapest house available. Then, buy a lot of expensive items
(such as the Monkey Butler). After this, evict your Sims from
that house, but do not empty the house. By doing this, your Sims
keep the "assets" that they had, which turn into money
for them. The house will then cost something similar to 99,999
Simoleans. To counter this, enter build mode for the house you
moved your Sims out of, then sell off the Monkey Butler and other
items you put up. The house will be cheap again. Move your Sims
back in and they will have a lot of money.
Enable the "Free mode" code, start a game, and buy fifteen
Heart Hot Tubs. Note: These must be unlocked in Get A Life mode
first. After buying them, save the game and quit. Turn off the
PlayStation2 to disable the code. Return to the same game and
sell all the Heart Hot Tubs that were bought to get up to 99,999
Simoleans. Notice that when you pay bills, buy something, etc.,
your money will not decrease.
Make a wall parallel to the sidewalk (with the trash can and mail
box). Put the most expensive wallpaper on both sides. Then, press
Square to sell the wallpaper on one side. If this does
not work, try the opposite side. You should be able to sell one
side's wallpaper repeatedly.
Use the following trick to make the wallpaper technique faster.
As you sell the sheet of wallpaper, you must hold Square
and release it to complete the sale. If you press Square
repeatedly after the sale, the sales keep occurring for how many
times it was pressed. Also, this trick works better if the wall
has an intersection in the shape of a "T".
Buy a workbench and heighten your Mechanical, Creativity, and
Body. Keep making Gnomes. If you have a very high status, you
should be able to sell each gnome for at least 100 Simoleans.
Making gnomes only take about one to two seconds each if you have
a very high status.
Have a Sim with a high creative level. Start a painting or a sculpture.
After it has been started, tell that Sim to stop, then have another
Sim (with no creative points) finish it. Sell it, and you will
still get as much money as you would if the Sim that originally
started it had also finished it. You can even have your kids finish
your painting and still get as much as if the parent did the painting.
In Play The Sims mode, take an empty square of land and build
on it with just the wall tool. When there is no more room, leave
the neighborhood. Move in a family (at least 13,405 Simoleans
required), then sell all the walls in build mode. After that,
leave the neighborhood. You will have regained the 13,405 Simoleans,
plus an additional 4,285 Simoleans
Enable the "Free mode" and "Midas mode" codes.
Go to an open location to make a house. Buy about 50 Monkey Butlers,
and move the family in. Save the game, then return to the main
screen. Disable the "Free mode" code, then return to
the Monkey Butler-infested area. Sell them all for a large profit
then make your own house.
When you finish a chapter, the phone will ring. Answer it and
you will get lots of Simoleans from someone named Malcolm. The
higher the chapter, the more money you will get.
Enable the "Free mode" and "Midas mode" codes
in neighborhood mode. Go to a deserted plot of land. Move in a
family, and fill the place with as many Persian rugs as possible
until the net worth is very high. Then, save the game and go to
the neighborhood screen and evict the family. After evicting your
family, bulldoze the house that you just built. You can repeat
this as many times as desired.
Enable the "Free mode" code. Go to Get A Life mode and
remodel your mom's home. For example, get her a big screen television.
Then, move out of your mom's home and she will give you money
for all of the remodeling that was done. The more you remodel,
the more money you get.
If your child gets a very good grade (for example, an A+) and
they keep studying, within a few days you should get money from
Lay the most expensive flooring sample manually by holding X
and stretching the flooring from one corner of the room to the
other. Then, pull up the flooring automatically by selecting the
"Grass" sample and holding the L1 or R1
(preview) to cover the entire room in grass and pressing X.
It costs much more money to lay things automatically than it is
to lay it manually. When you lay the expensive flooring manually
and the grass automatically, you will gain back the difference
in Simoleons. To make this go faster, buy an empty lot and build
nothing except a large room that spans the maximum build area
of the lot. Use this area to lay flooring. It may take you a few
attempts to be able to afford to cover the entire lot in the expensive
flooring, and you may need to manually lay only half the room
in expensive flooring during the first few times. Still, lay the
grass automatically for it to work. It is possible to get back
about 8,000 Simoleons per attempt on the large lot. If you are
running so low on money and are going to go broke any minute,
this is a quick way of getting out of the hole without having
to actually sell anything.
Whenever you catch a burglar in Get A Life mode, you can get up
to 10,000 Simoleons.
Enable the "Free mode" and "Midas mode" codes.
Buy a plot of land with a family. Then. buy as many love beds
as possible. While doing this, the price of the house will increased.
Once you have squeezed in as many love beds as possible, or the
purchase meter becomes full, evict the family (and empty the house).
Bulldoze the lot. The family that was just in there will have
about 300 Simoleons. Keep doing this until you get 999,999 Simoleons.
Enable the "Free mode" and "Midas mode" codes.
Then, buy an empty space of land with the family you want to get
rich and move in. Go directly into buy mode and purchase as many
Monkey Butlers as you can fit on the land. Then, disable the "Free
mode" code and go back to the same family. Sell all the Monkey
Butlers, and you should have 999,999 Simoleons.
Enable the "Free mode" code. Cover the entire house
with Antique Persian Rugs. Save the game, then reset. Load the
saved game file without using the "Free mode" code again.
Then, sell every rug. If done correctly you should have about
Enable the "Free mode" code. Start a new Get A Life
game. In every level there is a goal you must complete to move
out. For example, in the first level it is to get a job. Just
before you complete this goal, find the most expensive thing you
can buy (the Love Spa or Tree House recommended if the "Midas
mode" code is also enabled). Fill up every available square
on the lot with this object, then complete the goal. The message
"Bob has completed all goals and can move out" will
appear. Then, the owner of the house will say that you have you
have done so much to improve the house and will give you Simoleons.
The money is equivalent to the amount you spent on everything
you bought for the house. Do this on every level and you can never
Enable the "Free mode" code. Start Get A Life mode
with a new or existing game. Purchase as many pool tables as possible.
Save the game and quit. Reset the system at the title screen.
Start Get A Life mode and load the last saved game file. Sell
all the pool tables and you should have lots of Simoleons.
Hint: Stat management:
The best stats to use are maximum Active for studying
and no outgoing, so your Social bar stays up longer. Put the rest
on "Nice", for friends. If there is anything left over,
put them on Playful. It is easier to get your Fun level up by
playing pinball than to read a book for five hours.
Outgoing: The higher you put this stat, the faster your Social
meter goes down.
Active: The higher you put this stat, the longer you will study,
work out, etc.
Nice: The higher you put this stat, the faster it is to get a
friendship rating up.
Playful: If this is high, you like to play games. If it is low,
you like to read books (not study).
Neat: The higher it is, the more things you can clean by yourself.
For example, tell a Sim with no Neat to clean a plate and they
will pick up one plate. Tell a Sim with maximum Neat to pick up
a plate, and they will pick up all the plates.
Hint: X-Treme Carrier Completion:
Hint: Life Of Crime career path:
Prevent a thief from escaping in Get A Life mode to
unlock the Life Of Crime career path in all modes.
To easily get a Life Of Crime career, wait until a burglar arrives.
Then, go to build mode and get rid of all the doors. Next, call
the police. When they arrive, replace the door. Let the policeman
in and the burglar will be arrested.
Install a burglar alarm and keep a close eye on the sidewalk in
front of your house. As soon as you see a burglar, quickly press
Start, save the game, and quit. Load the saved game. This
should allow you to buy furniture during a burglary. Wait until
the burglar comes inside and place items in front of doors and
windows. Then when the police arrive, delete the items watch the
burglar get taken to justice.
Hint: Military career path:
Use the following routine when following the Military
career path in Play The Sims mode. Go to sleep at 7:00 p.m. Wake
up at 2:00 a.m. Take a shower. Use the toilet. Have a quick breakfast.
Come home, then repeat process, watch TV, play pinball, and go
Hint: Military School:
If your kids get too low with their grades, they will
be sent to military school.
Hint: Easy skills:
Evict a family. When this happens, their moods go up
immediately after you move into another house. Once you get in
a house, study, work out, etc.
If your energy or any other stats get low, evict yourself from
the house. Reenter the house and all your stats will be renewed.
Sell everything in the house except a mirror, guitar, and a pool.
Enable the "Free mode" code and leave the game running.
Your Sims will build up Charisma, Creative, and Body points by
themselves. The only other thing you will need to do is eat and
use the rest room. The best time to do this is when you are living
with your mom.
Hint: Easy Body meter increase:
Get a weight set. Grab a cheap table and set it by
the weight set. Note: Make sure your Sim can get on the weight
set. When the table is in place, buy an aroma machine and place
it on the table. Enter Live mode and have your Sim turn on the
aroma machine to Juniper and Rosemary, then work out. You will
notice your Sims energy will stay the same as he or she works
on its body without getting tired.
Hint: Easy Fun meter increase:
Buy a Whifferpuff Plus and place it next to your bed.
Set it to Lavender and Marjoram and your Fun meter will drastically
increase as you sleep.
The pool table is a great object for increasing your Sim's fun
meter. It has a fun level of 6. Have your Sim to play it when
you want to increase their fun mood. Shortly afterwards, the fun
meter should have increased greatly when using the pool table.
Hint: Getting in a good mood:
After you wake up in the morning, go to the bathroom.
If you have to flush the toilet, do so and if you have to clean
it, also do it. Then, take a shower (clean if desired). Then,
have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Watch television until Fun has
increased. This should put you in a green bar mood, ready for
work or study.
Hint: All Motives at maximum:
Go to your neighborhood with the Sims that you want
to max their motives with. Select the family and evict it. Then,
move them back in.
Hint: Quicker energy:
Go to build mode and select the second fireplace. Put
the fireplace in your room. Next, buy the most comfortable bed
(Modern Mission Bed) and put it one or two spaces in front of
the fireplace, but not directly in front of it. Then, buy two
square tables and put both of them on each side of the bed. Next,
buy the Aromster Whifferpuff "Gold" and place them on
both tables. Before going to bed, turn on the fireplace, and set
both Aromsters to Juniper and Rosemary. You can be fully rested
after about four hours and be ready for work.
Get the bed with the highest Energy status (10) and get all your
Sims except the one you want to get more energy. Get him or her
into the Napoleon Sleigh bed that you bought earlier. When he
gets in, the time will get even shorter and he or she will get
jonathan mark pollard.
Hint: Work out and not lose energy:
Buy a Wifferpuff and table. Put both directly next
to a work out machine, treadmill, or weights. Set the Wifferpuff
to Juniper and Rosemary. Start working out and you will not lose
Hint: Quick wake up:
When you have full energy and you want your person
to wake up, you just tell them something to do. They will get
up and do whatever you wanted them to.
Hint: Keep Aroma Machine from breaking:
If you are having trouble with your Aroma Machine.
put it on the Kinderstuff Night Stand.
Hint: Faster time:
Hold R2 and time will pass faster.
Hint: Get A Life mode: Easy Body Point:
Start Get A Life mode, and your character dreams. After
his or her kiss with the other Sim, quickly swim in the swimming
pool and ignore your mate. Keep swimming until you receive one
Body Point. Note: Do this quickly, before your mate angry and
the game ends. Note: You can only receive one Body Point.
Hint: Easy Get A Life mode:
Enable the "Free mode" code. Buy an exercise
machine, mirror, chess table and chairs, and paint board. While
in your Mom's house, fill up all your stats.
Choose a desired career and build all up your work stats while
living with your Mom. Do not worry about making friends yet. Look
at the last career promotion to see what also needs to be raised.
Even though your Mom will drive you up the wall, you will get
through the next stages easily.
Hint: Easy promotions:
To get promoted quickly, always check your Job Panel
and look at the Smiley face and the numbers next to it. Notice
that there are two numbers. The one on the left, if you have a
job, will have a number. You have to make as many Family Friends
to equal how many that number is. When you get the correct amount
of Family Friends, if you have any Yellow looking bars next to
your Cooking, Mechanical, etc., you will need to fill those up
by looking in a mirror and practicing speeches, Charisma, or working
out on a treadmill, body exerciser, etc. When you go to work the
next day or so, or if your Sim needs adjustment to its feelings,
keep it home one day from work. Fill up its needs and wait the
next day. When you go to work and your Sim is in a good mood (filling
its needs), check the job panel. Highlight the job they have,
press X, and it will show you their performance. If the
performance is "Good", you will most likely be promoted
when you get home. If it does not work the first time, keep filling
their needs and send them to work in a very good mood.
Hint: Unlock everything in build and buy
Get to chapter 2 in get a life mode. Complete all things
except for getting promoted to career level 2 and move out of
the house. When you have done that, save the game and return to
the main menu. Enable the "Free mode", "Midas mode",
and "Party Motel mode" codes. When you enter The Sims
mode, all of the things are now unlocked in build and buy mode.
Hint: Cheaper houses:
Enable the "Free mode" or "Midas mode"
code. Go to Play The Sims mode. If a character does not have enough
money to buy a house, bulldoze a worthless house and move that
family in the field; or if there is a place with no house, move
the family into that area. Pause game play and start building
your house however desired.
Enable the "Free mode"" and "Midas mode"
code. Build a frame for the house and move in a family. Build,
buy, and sell until you want to stop.
Instead of a 80,000 Simoleon house, clear the lot where a house
is. Then, move a family in the ''grassland''. When moved in, build
the house. Instead of a 80,000 Simoleon house you will have a
3,000 Simoleon house.
Hint: Do not lose things when purchasing
Enable the "Free mode" code, then choose
a blank address (a place with no houses). Then, enter family and
build your house.
Hint: Getting married:
To get married easily, invite a Sim of the opposite
sex. But first, always throw a party and pick the Sim you want
to marry. "Greet" them, "Talk" to them, then
when they want to leave you will know their phone number. After
dark, call that person. "Invite" them over. If they
say "Sure", wait for them. Get to know them more. When
you get the chance to "Flirt" with them, do so. Sooner
or later she or he will fall in love with you. The next day (or
perhaps on same day), get your Sim in a good mood (three green
bars or more). Then, "Serve Dinner (Lunch, etc.)". When
they are done eating as much as they desire, watch television.
While they are watching television, highlight your "Guest"
and give them the command to "Watch TV". They will "Watch
TV" with you, talk to you, and their comfort will rise. Next
,"Talk" with them, "Tell Jokes", "Hug",
"Dance", etc. If your Sim is still in a good mood (three
green bars or more), you will have the option to "Propose"
to the Sim you want to marry, Sometimes they will not accept (you
will hear warning sirens) and they will state a reason. Do whatever
they wanted you to do. When you fulfill their requests, "Propose"
again. If you are lucky, they will accept. Note: You can only
do this in Play The Sims mode.
Hint: Having a baby:
Create a family in Play The Sims mode. Get your Sim
married. Then, evict your family and them back. Take the married
couple to the bathroom and kiss. It may require four or five kisses
for it to work. A little box will appear and ask if you want a
Same sex couples can also have a baby. Instead of getting the
"Do you want a baby?" question, after awhile you will
get a call from an adoption agency asking if you want a baby.
In Free mode, have a Love Bed and a spouse/partner. Chose the
Love Bed and scroll down the list of suggestions and select "Vibrate".
Your Sim will take off their clothes and crawl into bed. Then,

clothes and also crawl in bed. You will hear your Sim bark or
Hint: Quiet baby:
When the baby is crying, the only things that you have
to do to make it fall back to sleep is "Feed" and "Sing",
in that order.
Hint: Raising a baby:
When you and your partner have a baby, stay off work
until the baby is a child. Do not pick up the phone or you will
be fired. Then, put in a toilet, fridge and PC in your room so
that you never have to leave it. Next, when the baby starts crying,
make sure you are immediately there, and feed then sing (in that
order). When it is asleep, also go to sleep. In a few days you
should have a child.
Hint: Losing baby to Social Services:
If you have a baby, you will notice that it cries frequently.
When you click on it, "Play", "Feed", and
"Sing" will appear. If you just sing to it, it will
go to sleep. If you do not sing, play, and feed it every time
it cries, a message will appear about a day later that states
"You are neglecting your baby. If you do not pay attention
to it soon, it'll be taken away from you." If you continue
to neglect it, a day or so later, a woman from SimCity Social
Services will appear and take your baby away. There is nothing
you can do to stop this once she has entered your house.

In Get A Life mode, get a girlfriend. You may get a call from
City Hall asking if you want to adopt a baby. Make a room for
it and take the door off. Let it starve. After a few days a City
Hall agent should arrive to take the baby away. With the door
gone she cannot get through. However after awhile she will pass
by it and take the baby.
Hint: Avoid losing baby and job:
Have one Sim skip work to care for the baby. The next
day, have a different Sim skip work to care for your baby. Repeat
this until you raise it to a child.
Hint: Blue baby:
Neglect your baby until the Social Services message
appears. Continue to not feed it, and the woman will appear to
take your hard-earned baby. When she enters the house, hold L
to pause time. Go over to your baby carriage, zoom in, then change
the view so you can see where the baby's head should be. You will
see a blue pillow and a little blue baby head.

Hint: Disappearing baby:
If you moved out of a house and into a new one while
your baby is still in a carriage, it will disappear. Because you
can pick it up and move it around in Buy Mode, it is considered
a piece of furniture. When you normally move, your furniture does
not go with you.

Hint: Kidnapped baby:
When a thief comes to your house, he or she will steal
the most expensive or closest thing in the house. If your bedroom
is first room in your house, and your baby is next to the bed,
a thief can enter and steal your baby.

Hint: Baby to child:
After about five or six days, a baby will evolve into
a child. The stats and appearance of the child are absolutely

Hint: Keep child home from school:
If you do not want your child to go to school and do
not want to keep hearing the bus honk every few seconds, just
let your child stand in the middle of the road where the bus waits
everyday. Then the bus will not appear, and your child will not
go to school.
Children do not have to go to school. They can also stay home
and raise the second child. Have them study or play chess.
Hint: Getting money after missing work:
If you miss work one day, do not answer the phone.
Instead, wait until the next caller, who should call in later.
They will give you some money.
Hint: Paying maid, gardener, or repairman
If you do not have enough money to pay the maid, gardener,
or repairman, they will take one of your household items (usually
a lamp). Also, you may not hire them back.
Hint: False alarm charge:
If you call the fire department when there is no fire,
they will charge you 200 Simoleons. To avoid this fine, do not
call them if you know the fire is weak. If it burns out, even
if you call while it is still burning, they will charge you. Note:
This happen with the police.
Hint: Cancel newspapers:
Let your newspapers pile up for five days until you
have five of them on your yard. On the sixth day, do not collect
any and you will get a message stating that you will not receive
any more papers because you have too many. Note: If you hire a
maid, she will pick up the papers and you will continue to receive
Hint: Bills on the ground:
Sell all your tables and counters, then put plants
on top of your dish washer, trash compactor, etc. Your Sim will
then put all the bills that are received on the ground. This looks
very funny if you throw a party while the bills are on the ground.
Hint: Never pay bills:
This trick only works in Play The Sims mode. If you
do not want to pay your bills, evict your family from the house
every two days then move them back in.
Put a fireplace in an empty room. When bills arrive, place them
in the room on the left side of the fireplace. Have a Sim light
a fire. When the bills burn to ash, call the fire department.
This trick also works on multiple bills. Note: If any Sims die
during the fire, reset the game.
Hint: Easy garbage removal:
When you are emptying the automatic trash compactor
you do not have to go all the way outside... To save time, pull
it out of the compactor then just cancel the throwing away (Square).
Then, just pick it up and put it back in.
Hint: Keep Major Dormo longer:
Call Major Dormo, then put a fence around his tree
house after he leaves it. He will remain with you much longer,
but will still eventually disappear.
Hint: Attack a Sim:
Insult a neighbor or your roommate until their name
is down to -100. Then, go outside and display the action options
(where you can choose to kiss, hug, insult, slap). You should
now be able to attack the person. Do this about three times. Your
roommate will have had enough and pack up and leave for good.
Hint: Killing Sims:
If you want to see the Grim Reaper and put a lot of
tombstones in your backyard, enter build mode and add a fireplace.
Fix up the house somewhat. When prompted to move in a family,
create one and make several Sims. Have all of your Sims enter
the room with the fireplace and have one of them light it and
stand very close. The fire should catch them all if they were
close enough. The Grim Reaper should show up to claim the family.
Once he does, if there is one Sim remaining have them call the
fire department. the Fire should go out and there should be several
little tombstones sticking up out of the ash. Enter build mode,
grab all of them, and place them in the backyard. If desired,
you can add some flowers and other objects. They will become a
grave. To get rid of the last Sim, lock them in a room with no
windows or doors. They should die in three and a half days. Repeat
the grave steps when the Grim Reaper reappears. if you want a
very large graveyard, repeat all the steps. Note: This will not
be a good home for families, as they will be mourning all the
Note: You can also use the previously described steps to kill
Dudley/Mimi. When they die, you will continue the game as usual
(no game over). You can also kill your Mom, but you will have
to start again from your last save.
Get a fireplace and surround it with a lot of flammable objects.
Then have a party and invite a lot of people. Light up the fireplace,
and it will eventually burn down the house. Note: Leave the house
immediately after you light it.
Place your Sim in a small room, with about enough room for your
Sim, a large number of trash cans, and a fireplace. Put your Sim
directly next to the fireplace. Then, put trash cans all around
the fireplace. Have your Sim light the fireplace. In about an
hour, the trash can will catch on fire and kill your Sim.
Start Play The Sims mode. Once you find a family, do not teach
the father how to cook. Make the father cook something and he
will accidentally burn his food and start a fire. He will die
from burning in the flames. Have a child come out at midnight
and you will see the father walking around as a ghost. Look around
the house, backyard, or outdoors to see the ghostly parent. Note:
Make sure the kids are at school during the fire, and also have
the mother there to call the fire department to put the flames
Throw a party. Get all the people in the back yard. Lock them
in a fence and wait until they die. After awhile, at night they
may appear walking around your house as ghosts.
Hint: Ghost Sim:
Use the following trick to turn your home into a haunted
house. Kill one or more of your Sims. The best way to do this
is to place them in a side room, then remove the doors so they
have no place to go. Then, let them die of starvation. The Grim
Reaper will appear and they will turn into an ash urn. Keep the
urn around and eventually when nightfall arrives, the ghost of
the dead Sims(s) will randomly wander around the house, through
the walls, and back to its container. If a living Sim comes across
the ghost, they will become frightened.
Hint: Change clothes faster:
When a Sim puts up the curtain to change, press L1
to pause game play. They will change, but time will freeze.
Hint: Place wallpaper or carpets faster:
Hold L1 or R1, then press Square
at the same time.
Hint: Keep Sims from talking to each other:
Have your Sims eat different meals (have them both
fix their own meals).
Hint: Alien abduction:
Buy the telescope and use it for too long. Your Sim
will be abducted and disappear. It will reappear some hours later,
with different stats.
Hint: Nude Sim:
Note: This is easiest to do in Play The Sims mode.
Get a fire place, then buy a rug and place it under the fireplace.
Guy the heart shaped spa. Light the fireplace, get in the spa,
and wait until there is a fire. Before your Sim gets out and starts
jumping around because of the fire, cancel everything but the
spa. Wait until the spa burns up. If done correctly, your Sim
will appear in another part of room close to the wall, and will
not have their clothes on. Note: The censor will still appear.
Note: When your Sims appear on the screen nude naked after the
spa burns down, if you tell them to go to the bathroom while they
still have the censor on, the censor will disappear when they
are done using the bathroom.
Enable the "Third person view" code. Have a Sim get
in the bathtub and press Circle(3) to get into third person
view. Cancel the bathtub order when they are in it by pressing
Triangle and then Up. If done correctly, you should
see their rear.
Hint: Topless female Sim:
This trick requires two Sims and the Heart Shaped Bed.
Enable the "Third person view" code, then make the two
Sims play in the bed. Make sure the Sim you are not controlling
is a female. Press Circle to look through the Sim's eyes.
As you are getting into bed, use the Right Analog-stick
to make your Sim look down at the female's Sim's chest. Note:
You will notice that she has no breasts. Note: This may take a

Purchase a dresser and a vibrating bed. Let your female Sim enter
the bed under the vibrate command. Get her out and quickly select
the bed. A new "Rest" command will be available. When
she gets in the bed, move the dresser next to her side of the
bed so that she cannot get out. Wake her up. Every time she tries
to get up, you can see topless. This happens about once every
twenty game minutes. Hold Speed and to see this about once
every five seconds.
Go into the hot tub with a female Sim in first person view in
Get A Life mode to see her topless.
Hint: Zombie Sim:
Kill a Sim and wait for the Grim Reaper to appear.
Plead for his or her life. The Grim Reaper will either ignore
your plea, turn your Sim into a Zombie, or revive your Sim. If
your Sim was revived, kill him or her again, then try again. The
outcome is random. Note: Do not save the game if the Grim Reaper
kills your Sim. Reload the game and try again. Zombie Sims do
not have any features different from normal Sims other than a
Hint: Regain needs:
Skip work every other day, to the point where they
call you but you will not get fired to regain your fun and social
levels. While you are home, call over some friend(s) and play
pool or a cooperative game.
You can use the Wiffer Puffer Gold to recover a certain part of
your needs, such as comfort, fun, etc. according to the one you
use. This is especially useful near where you read or work out.
Buy a Bug Zapper from the electronics section of buy mode. Place
it somewhere outside. Have an adult Sim touch the Bug Zapper (highlight
and select the Bug Zapper for the options to appear). Then choose
the "Touch" option and your Sim will get shocked by
the Bug Zapper. Do this a few times and your Sim's energy level
will be boosted, but they will need some comfort points.
Enable the "Free mode" code and buy two Aromaster Whinpuffer
Golds. Put them in your bedroom. When you want to go to bed, set

the settings on (a different one on each), then go to sleep. The
next day you will have four filled bars. Note: You will have trouble
with them; enable the "Midas mode" code and buy the
Monkey Butler. Release him everyday and he will automatically
Hint: Broken items:
This trick can be one in Get A Life and Play The Sims
modes. If something breaks down and your Sim is too depressed
to study Mechanics, simply sell it and buy a new one. Note: If
fixing the object is one of your goals, this will not work.
Hint: Keep items when bulldozing a house:
Note: Do not select "Bulldoze Lot" from the
menu. Buy the house. If you want to save items that must hang
on a wall, save part of the dry wall until you have your new house
built. Otherwise, sell all windows, doors, floors, and dry wall.
Sell any items that you do not want an save the ones that you
want. Then, build your house. Note: This does not work if you
cannot afford the house.
Hint: Quitting a job:
There are two ways to quit a job. The first is to keep
skipping work until they fire you. The other is to first get a
job, then look for another one. Instead of taking one, select
Hint: Take house over from Mom:
Enable the "Free mode" code, then trap Mom
in a small room. Give her regular appliances like a small bed,
refrigerator, toilet, and stove. Then, make walls surrounding
the yards. Her house is now yours.

and sit on your couch. The handyman will fix all but the one light,
then he will sit on the couch and watch television for about a
week until you remove the walls to the light.
Hint: Become an insomniac:
To cut the energy recovery time by over half, you will
need a Bug Zapper, Espresso Machine, something to put it on, and
a Sonic Shower. When you are close to running out of energy, drink
espressos until your Sim wets himself or herself. Then, go to
the Bug Zapper and select "Touch". Touch the zapper
until your energy meter is full. Your hygiene and comfort should
now be at zero. Go to the Sonic Shower and take a shower. That
will max out your Hygiene bar and about two-thirds of your Comfort
bar. You can now be an insomniac and never sleep.
Hint: SimCity reference:
Order a pizza. When the pizza delivery boy arrives,
he should say "I made it here from SimCity in 20 minutes!"
Hint: Sims on computer:

watch the fish, and when you press Start the fish will
Glitch: Invisible pool:
In Play The Sims mode, go to an empty lot and select
"Build House". Do not build any walls. Just place a

or vanity table. Go to change appearance or change clothes. When
the option for changing appears, your Sim's head will not appear.
Glitch: Flat Sim on bed:
Note: This is very difficult to do and may not work
with every attempt. In order to make your desired Sim flat, get
a Major Domo tree. Then, get the bed with the moon. Put it very
near your Domo. First, mess up your bed so that Major Domo can
make it. Let Major Domo come out. The moment he is about to make
the bed, make sure your Sim is already in there. You will see
a Sim with a flat body, legs and hands. This will stop when you
get out of bed.
Glitch: Floating food:
This can be done at any time during the game. Start
or load any game (Get A Life or Play the Sims mode) and enter
a house. Go to the kitchen and make some food. While your Sim
is holding their food, pause game play and select "Save And
Quit" from the options. When you go back into the house,
immediately pause game play and go into build or buy mode. Then,

is holding will load, but the Sim will not. It will appear as
if the food is floating in the air.
Glitch: No cooking:

you cook, you will get a pile of yellow substance. If someone
serves it and you move the meal somewhere other then the table,
it turns to chicken. However, you still cannot eat it
Glitch: No censor curtain:
Get someone in a bath or love bed. Put a fire place
next to it, buy a cheap rug under bed or bath. If fire goes on
the bed or bath, they will hop out. The censor curtain will appear,
and when they hop out off you can see them uncensored.
Make a room just big enough for a bed and for Sim to walk through
to get to it. Then, buy a love bed and place it in the middle
of the room. Buy four fireplaces and place them on the outside
of the room. Buy enough carpets to fill up the room. Then, buy
a door. Make your Sim light all four fireplaces. Next, make the
Sim vibrate in the bed. After the Sim is fully in the bed, put
each lit fireplace on each side of the bed so that the Sim cannot
get out. Wait for the bed to catch on fire. The Sim will disappear.
Press R2 to make you Sim go to the bathroom. When they
are done, the censor will be gone.
Enable the "First person view" code. Start a new game
in Get A Life mode. Create a new Sim. Make the Sim get a beer
by the pool in the dream level. Press Circle button to
switch to first person view. When the Sim is looking down, press

slightly. Go over to naked Sim in the love tub. Slowly zoom in
until you can see through the censor barrier. This trick works
on any level and any mode.
Glitch: Disappearing flames:
Make a small room (3x4 works best), and place one or
two cheap rugs down. Buy a fireplace, and get your Sims into it.
When the desired Sims are inside, remove all the doors, then place
full panel windows on every wall piece. Light the fire, and let
the rugs burn. when You switch to a view that shows the windows,
the flames will not be shown, but the Sims will still be burning
Glitch: No Mom in Chapter 1 of Get A Life
Make a room with fireplaces. Make Mom mad at you for
awhile until you can slap her. Slap her until you hate each other
at 100%. Light the fireplaces, then attack Mom. Quickly pause
game play and save the game. Go out and put plants around Mom;
make sure that you can escape. Place rugs under her. She will
burn to death. The "Mom has died, Game Over!" message
will appear. Load your game and play. Mom will be gone, but you
can still play. Note This does not work every time.
Glitch: Keep Monkey Butler forever:
First, make a room that is 1 by 3 squares long in your
house. Put a door on the long end and an impassable object in
the middle (such as a jukebox or sideways toilette). Next, have
a broken light that is not fixed and put it in the spot that has
nothing in it farthest from the door. Hire the Monkey Butler and
he will go about his business until he tries to fix the light.
He will keep trying to fix it until you have something else for
him to do, thus staying and cleaning forever.
Glitch: Old floor:
If you have a room with windows and you want to change
the carpet/tiling hold the button that shows what the entire room
would look like with a floor piece. Hold that button and change
the view so you can look through the window. You will see the
old floor through the window, and your new one through where the
wall would be. Note: You must have the walls off. Isiah <email@example.com>
Glitch: Leave game boundary:
Send your Sim to his job. Make sure you have at least
one person left in the house. After he has gone to work, save
and restart the game. Go back to the same house and select the
Sim who is working. Go to the yellow lines in the street (where
you cannot go any farther) and press Square repeatedly.
You should be able to move freely beyond the boundaries. Go to
the walls behind the house to also try this. You can even go beyond
the level scenery. Once he comes back from work, you can no long
