Hint: Two player mode:
Enter freeplay mode (if there are two or more people in the house) or go into the levels. Have player two press Start and a bus appear if you are in the levels; or the second player will become one of the family members in freeplay mode. Note: In freeplay mode you need at least two Sims in the house to make this work.
Lindsay.

Hint: Boosting a low budget:
At Mom's house, Mimi's place, or Dudley's trailer, buy things until your budget drops below $100. Wait about an hour. When the phone rings, answer it. You will get free money. Repeat this as necessary.

Hint: Fun rating:
To always have a good Fun rating, buy the Aromaster and place it in your Sims bedroom. Each time your Sim goes to bed, turn it onto the second selection, "Lavendar & Marjoram". This will boost your Fun meter while your Sim sleeps. You need to have at least 150 Simoleans in order to run the Aromaster. Also, if you get robbed, the Aromaster will be one of the first things stolen; have a burglar alarm in place.
Aurik Rain.

Hint: Raise motives:
To help raise motives in later levels, move back to Mom's house. The Artificial Love will make raising motives easier.
Lupin III.

Go to work one day then skip work the next day to fill your motives. Note: Be careful; if you skip work two times in a row you can get fired.
radical_sk8boarder82.

Buy the Aromaster Windpuffer Gold aroma machine. Peppermint and Juniper increases Comfort. Lavender and Marjoram increases Fun. Juniper and Rosemary increases Energy. Rosemary and Peppermint increases Room.
bekii.

Use the following trick to max out the Active, Outgoing, Neatness, Niceness, and Playful personality stats. Play in free mode and evict the Tutti family from their home. Then, edit the family. Choose Ginger to edit. Go to the place where you can put in your personality "points". Go to Neatness and the bar will keep moving further when you move it up, even though all of the points have already been used.

If your Sim is having trouble boosting their motives, buy four Aromasters and set them on a table. Set all four scents and it will raise some of your Sim's motives.
ATVrider0529.

Use the following trick to raise your Happiness. Enable the "Cheat gnome" code, then enable the "Extra money" code and collect it. At every house you move to, buy a maid, repairman, and a gardener to keep your house looking nice. Watch out for the repairman though, as he sometimes sneaks off and watches the television. It also helps if you have bought that expensive robot that can do a lot of things like cleaning. This leaves you free to work on your logic.
Adam McKaig.

At the beginning, stay with your mom and complete all goals except getting a job. Then, keep painting and selling them until your Creativity is filled. Then, read about Cooking until it is all filled up. Next, read about Mechanical until it is all filled up. Then, work on Body by buying the weight lifting set until it is all filled. Next, work on Charisma by practicing speech in front of the mirror. Finally, work on Logic by playing chess. Note: every time you get another point in doing these things, go to the bathroom, eat, and watch television in order to remain happy. When everything is filled, sell the things you have bought and move out.
Tigergirl001300.

When you start, do not leave Mom's house. Enable the "Cheat gnome" and "All objects unlocked" codes. Get the most expensive things in the skill building section, then raise all of your motives. Then, go to work.
Horse52152.

Use the following trick in Free Play mode to keep your Sim happy. Make a child with any stats or apearance. Into the house as a child. Save the game, quit, then evict the family and go to edit however desired. Make sure they are adults. This will make your skills very high. Make a house. Get the most expensive mechanical machine to make gnomes and sell them. After awhile you can sell them for 120 Simoleons. You can create a gnome in five seconds (on double speed). If you have not unlocked it, get the other gnome maker. To keep yourself in a good mood while making gnomes, do the following steps.

Go to sleep in a good bed.
Have some food (make sure you have an expensive fridge, oven, etc.).
Go to the toilet (if it is dirty, clean it).
Have a good bath (for comfort reasons, clean if dirty).
Do something fun (for example, use the tetherball; it is also useful to have Playful high on the skills bar).
Do something that you need to, like social, study, or most importantly, make gnomes until he or she stopped himself or herself and does the next thing.
Repeat all the steps.

You can then sell the gnomes for about 100 Simoleons each.
Jayzomad1.

Hint: Raising skills:
While living with Mom, do not run out and get a job after you have completed the first few goals. Instead, stay around awhile and use that time to build skills. Mom will nag you, but just select "Okay" and keep doing everything else. Make sure to keep yourself happy and entertain/talk/joke with Mom to keep your relationship up to par. When you have your skills where you want them, move out. This will make things much easier. You will then be able to concentrate on your job and relationships, rather than skill building.
Scarlet.

Notice that when you are at your Mom's house at the beginning, your Sim's energy and social do not go down, and will remain at the halfway point. Using this, you can raise your skills faster. First, have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Then, use the toilet, take a bath, watch television for fun and comfort, then finally work on whatever skill you want. After repeating this routine before having breakfast, lunch, or dinner, clean up the plates. Do not call a maid or anything else, as it is a waste of money. For extra money, do creative skills on your paint set and sell your paintings when done. This will give you a lot of money when you are done with your skills. Do all goals except getting a job. Do not sleep or talk to your mom while doing this. When done with Cooking, Mechanical, Creative, and Charisma, buy a chess table for Logic. When you are done with those skills, sell the chess set (whole refund). Then, buy the weight lifting machine for the Body. When done with all skills, get a job and move out.
Eddie.

While waiting for your baby to become a child, you are not allowed to leave your house. This is a great time for building your skills up, improving your relationships for your career, and doing whatever needs done around the house.
Jecht2k4.

To raise your Body skills much faster, work out on the Rock Climbing Wall. Your Sim will get Body points going up the wall and also when going down the wall.
KrazyKyle199102.

To successfully gain skills, put fun in between your tasks, such as Study, Read, Study, Dance, Paint. Note: Do not them do dancing and watching television very long before going on to the next task.
wesley whisnant.

If you have a lot of stats to improve (for example, 5 Body and 4 Mech), move to your Mom's house and stay there for a while. The bus will not come for work, and you will not get fired. You now have time to raise your stats. Also invite your friends over and keep your relations up if needed. If you get your stats up, keep friends, and stay connected, you can move out in a week (Sim time) or later and continue with your life.
atari888.

In free play mode, create the Sim(s) you are going to use, but only as kids. Move them into any lot. Enter the house, then press Start to save and quit. Next, go back to Free street where you have the family you are going to use and evict them. Then, go to "Edit Family" and edit the kids you created. You can now raise all of their personality points. Make them adults and dress them however desired. Then, move them into a lot where you want them to live. If you look at their skills, they will already have some.
Edgar.

In free play mode, edit Ginger then go to her personal information (Nice, Outgoing, Playful, etc.). You can raise all of her stats without having to take some away, and make her a super Sim.
Ryugamer9.

At the beginning of the game, unlock Club Rubb by doing a goal. When you walk in, there will be a DJ stand. Highlight it and select "Spin" .Your Sim should walk over and start making music. If there are people nearby, they should start "booing" or sticking their tongues out. Keep playing and your creative stats should go up.
TBX911.

To get a full Mechanical skill in one day, buy the Tesla Coil 3.0 and use it. By the next day your Mechanical skill should be full. Note: This works best if you fill all motives with the "Raise motives" code first.
Rusty Shacklferd and biteme595.

Before you begin Bust Out mode and get a job, if you want to fill up all your skills it is best if you do this at Mom's house, You will get unemployed and will not have to worry about your job.
Juonna17.

When in freeplay mode, evict the family with all girls. Delete everyone but Ginger. Then, edit Ginger. When done, make another Sim that is completely new. Your person looks like Ginger, but you can change them. When you set that Sim's Neatness, Outgoing, etc., you can move the bars all the way forward as you would with Ginger. Everyone can have full bars in your family.
scott lloyd.

Hint: Raising relationship:
Use the following trick if your Sims are married with a low relationship. In Free or Bustin Out mode, buy a white love rug and place it in your room . Buy a fireplace and put it in front of it. Then, move your pointer over to the love rug and select "Relax". Select the female Sim, and there should be a suggestion that reads "Join". Select it and your lover will kiss and play on the rug . Your relationship should rise to 106% on the girl you are with, and you to 103%. To make it really romantic, turn on your radio to smooth jazz then light a fire.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Completing all goals:
If you want to complete all the goals (the goals besides getting promoted to) do not fill up all your stats(Body, Cooking, etc.) at the start. This is because you will go through the levels very quickly and will not have time to do the other goals. Instead, at the start just fill Body, because your energy only goes halfway down; and Creative, so you can throw a great party.
Richard Patterson.

Hint: Unlock social options:
To unlock most social options, become friends with the Sims. For example, when you be friends with Randy you will unlock "French Kiss" and with Paisly you could unlock "Spank Booty". Each Sim has there own social option to unlock when you become their family friend.
BxPRPapi191.

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.
KURT.

Hint: Keeping Social Points up:
When creating a Sim (Bust Out or Free Play mode), remove all Outgoing Points. This has two benefits; more points and your Sim's Social level will decrease at a slower pace. With that done, your Sim will not need to talk to others as much, making it easier for you to keep them happy.
Jita the Renegade.

Hint: Making friends:
Invite a friend over, then get into a hot tub, preferably the Love Tub. Then, ask a friend to join you. When he or she gets in, place items around the Love Tub. The Sims will not be able to leave, and will keep talking to each other.
NileLeeCalenbur.

Hint: Inviting friends successfully:
When you want a friend to go to your house, call them once. If they say "No", call them two more times.
ORDONRO.

Hint: Keeping friends:
Get married when possible, then instead of getting the friends you need to get a promotion with your Sim, get the friends with the Sim you are married to. The relationship that the Sim you are married to has with other Sims never decreases. You can get friends and not have to worry about keeping them.
kenny collado.

This trick will allow you to advance through careers quickly, and keep friends without a lot of work.To build your skills quickly, enable the "Cheat Gnome" code, get a lot of money, fill all motives, and unlock all objects. Build yourself a room on the side of your mom's room. Fill it only with the stuff you need to build up every single skill. For Body, a Rock Climbing Wall works faster than anything else. After you have built up all of them and maxed them out, get any job desired. You will only have to worry about friends at this point, because you are skilled enough to do anything. To make friends extremely quickly, invite three over at a time. Get them all in a hot tub, and place objects (buy plants if you cannot decide what to use) around the hot tub. If you are not friends with them by the time you must go to work, unblock the corner you are at, get out, then the Cheat Gnome to fill all motives and go to work. No one will climb out because they are still blocked in. When you get home, get back in, and start all over. This is made easier if you have a husband or wife; their friends are your friends, and you can just keep all of them locked up. When you have become friends with three Sims, unblock the tub, and invite three more over. Do not forget to use the Cheat Gnome on your husband or wife when they get out of the tub, or else they will pass out. You only need to keep six friends for the highest level in the careers; do not worry about making more than that.
Johnny'sAngel.

Hint: Angry roommate or family member:
Live in a house with a roommate have your friendship not good. Enable the "Cheat gnome" and "All socials unlocked" codes . Select your roommate and scroll down to the list of suggestions until you find "Use Sign Language". Select it, and you will hear bleeping while your Sim flips off their roomate. They will get mad and slap or insult you.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Having a baby:
Your Sims must be married and the Love Bed must be unlocked. Pick your female Sim and tell her to "Sleep". Then, bring the male Sim and tell him to "Play In Bed". After you finish, kiss her and you will be asked if you would like to have a baby. Note: Your relationship must be 100%.
Mazen disclosed.

If you need to have a baby as part of a goal, in free play mode make a family with just a male (if playing a female) or a female (if playing a male). Then, make them have a child. Save them, then move them in on 3 Free Street. Build a small nice house then go back under your Sim that need to do this goal. Have him or her get in love and then marry. Make sure this is the last goal that you need.. This way, you can just move out and move on with the game. When you move in with the next family and view your goals, "Get married" and "Raise a baby to child" will be already be checked.
Amanda.

Use the following trick to have a baby on a low budget. If you have not unlocked the Vibrating Bed, use this instead. Tell your Sim to call your mate over. Then give them a gift, kiss them, hug them, then kiss them again. You have to do this immediately. That means they must be lined up at the top. You can do this without being married. Your Friendship meter must be high.
Kttnztalz4.

When you have a baby, it is difficult to take care of because you need to be in the house all the time. You will have to skip work until the baby is grown. Pay attention to it constantly. The moment you hear it cry, abort everything and run to it instantly. When they cry, feed it, then sing to it. When it cries, try to avoid playing with it to stop the crying. The crying will most likely just get worse. If you are feeding, playing, or singing to the baby and it starts to cry, press X immediately and abort that. If you let it cry, social services will give one warning before taking it away if it cries for thirty game minutes or longer. Also, try to avoid letting other Sims that you are not controlling make contact with the baby. Most likely they will pick it up and play with it, which usually causes it to cry. In about three game days, the baby will become a child. You must still watch the child closely. If he or she receives bad grades, social services could take away the child. Social services does not take away teenagers however; do not worry about them when they get to be teens.

In Free or Bustin Out 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, click on their partner, scroll down the list of suggestions, and choose "Play In Bed". The partner will take off their clothes and also crawl in bed. You will hear your Sim bark or howl.
AngeGarga.

In Free Play mode, create two Sims (a male and female). When the game starts, enable the "Unlock all socials" code. Start to do the Moon Walk and do things with the other Sim. When you get the option to flirt, do so. Start spanking and French kissing them. When it is at 100% love, do not stop. A message asking if you want to have a baby will appear. Alternately, get 100% love then play in a Love Bed. The phone will ring. Answer it, and you will asked if you want to adopt a baby.
Amber M.

In free play mode, control a Sim female and mail. Talk until you like each other at 90, then kiss until it is 100. You will be asked if would you like to have a baby. If it cries, feed it then sing a song. Do not let it cry for too long. You will get one warning, then the social worker will take it away. Make a room with a bed and move the cradle beside it. Make another room with a bed for the other Sim to sleep in. By doing this, only one Sim will wake up. Take turns every night. During the day, put the baby in the living room. If it cries while in the living room, cancel whatever you are doing and see to its needs. Take turns seeing to its needs.
steven turner.

To get married you need food, money, a television, toilet, phone, and the mission Raise A Baby and Get Married. Have a 100% relationship a free play woman or man. Have your Cooking skill at 10 or you will catch on fire. Invite the woman or man from free play mode to have dinner together. She or he will go to the toliet. Then, invite her or him to watch television. After that, propose to her or him. To have a baby, go to a place with the "Raise A Baby" mission. Kiss your wife or husband and you will have a baby.
GashiO.

Hint: Raising a baby:
Every time the baby cries, use one Sim to feed, play, and sing to it, in that order. Let one Sim go to sleep at night. The baby might cry once. Note: Make sure that one Sim is awake and one is asleep. Let the parent that is sleeping wake up. Then, send one Sim to take care of the baby. After that, let the parent that did not sleep, fall asleep. While one sleeps, get the other's motives up. Keep switching off until the baby becomes a child. It only takes three Sim days for a baby to become a child.
HalfpintSnug.

Taking care of the baby may seem difficult, but it is not. Watch the cradle, and when it starts crying pause game play. Select "Buy", then move the cradle as close as possible to a Sim. Resume the game and choose "Feed". Then, sing to it (in that order). The baby will grow up.
Amber M.

When you are married and get a baby, your Sim (the main working one) can still continue to work. Your spouse can look after the baby while your Sim is at work. If both Sims need to sleep, the baby does not have to be in the same room. Place the cradle just outside the bedroom, so that you can see it and your Sims at the same time. Make walls invisible. When you see the baby cry, wake up the Sim with the most energy. Make him or her feed the baby, then to it. Then, go back to bed.
chocoholic1977.

Playing with the baby increases the chances of higher creativity level and charisma level for the child. Playing also increases the relationship level and gives the child a better personality when he or she grows up. When the baby cries; feed, play, and sing. You may have to sing to it two times, but playing is a big help. If it does not sleep after the second singing session, try to feed it again. It may still be hungry. Then sing again. But most times singing once or twice works.
Jennifer Rice.

Playing with the baby also increases the bond (higher relationship level) when baby becomes a child. It also makes the child's "Playfulness" level higher. Playing with the baby every time it cries will have the Playfulness level at maximum. The best routine is to place the cradle in the living room near a sofa or recliner and simply have one parent nap on the couch. The adult will wake up quicker. Never place it in the bedroom. Sometimes if the adult is awoken while in bed, they will actually make the bed before feeding baby and this creates a problem because the time limit is too short. Note: One hour is not a neglected baby. If the baby cries for one game hour (one actual minute), the warning will appear. It is best to stay near the baby until it cries. Feed, play, sing, etc. Once the baby is asleep, then take care of your Sim's needs (eat, bathe, etc.) so you will be ready to do it again later. Once baby is fed, it must be asleep within five game hours or the warning will appear.
Jennifer Rice.

Hint: Marriage then child with straight A's:
When at Malcom's Mansion, one of the goals is to get married, raise a baby to a child, and send the child to Prep School with straight A's. Save the game and quit. Go to Freeplay mode and go to the Frutti Street. Select "Evict", then "Edit family". Pick Ginger (African American Sim) then go down to her Zodiac sign and raise all her personality points. This will make communicating with her easier. Re-enter the lot and buy the essentials (food, plumbing, etc.) and a phone. Go back to the Mansion in Bustin' Out mode and call Ginger if possible. If not, wait until she comes to your house. If you invite her with only 5% of relationship, she will reject you. Talk to her until getting at least 20% to 25% relationship. Invite her over, prepare food, and get her relationship up to 100%. Do not worry about your job. Kiss her twice, and make out if possible. Then, propose. You will unlock a very nice car. To have a baby, buy a bed (Vibrating Bed recommended) and select "Vibrate". After getting in, invite Ginger over and select "Make Out" or "Try For Baby". Wait about two to five Sim hours. Someone will say "Do you want to have a baby?" Select "Yes" and it will say "It's a <boy or girl>. What's its name?" choose a name and the carriage will appear nearby. The baby will cry. Enabling the "Raise motives" cheat is recommended. After it becomes a child, make the boy or girl study until reaching an A+ grade point. After it gets into Prep school, you again will get another car.
Brian4life.

Hint: Ditch baby:
After getting a baby, select the car and pick "Move Out".
Anne Ingram.

Hint: Never lose baby:
If both of your Sims leave the room that your baby is in, press Start and go to buy/build mode. Move the cradle to one of the rooms that your Sim is in. This works better if the cradle is near the Sim. If outside, put it near the Sim.
75scampbell.

Hint: Baby gets taken away later:
When the social worker arrives, build a wall around her. She will eventually get out and leave, probably with a bad review.
Grant.

Hint: Keeping your job:
If you do not want to get fired or be warned when you miss your bus, when the phone rings do not pick it up.
lorean sanchez.

Hint: Jock career:
To successfully complete the Jock career, you need to have all Body points, 4 Cooking points, and 5 Charisma points. You will also need six friends. A quick way to complete this is go to Mom's house and buy something to work your body (for example, a treadmill, pool, etc.);a bookshelf or something similar to the gourmet cooking stove; and something for your charisma (for example, a microphone or a mirror). Do that, then build your skills and move to the different houses so you can complete a goal and unlock something. You will eventually get to Malcolm's mansion.
Dragonslave2191.

Hint: Recommended careers:
To complete the game much faster and easier, start it with the Mad Scientist career. Work on your Mechanical and some Body skills, then after completing that career, get a new job in the Counter Culture career. Work on your Cooking and Charisma skills. While doing these careers, you can stock up on the "important" skills. For example, you must work on your Mechanical and some body Skills in the Mad Scientist career so you can get full bars for those, full bars of Cooking for the Counter Culture career, and Charisma for both.
KrazyKyle199102.

The best career choice is the Jock career, because at the final promotion, you only need six friends. Also, Jocks make good money.
Anna.

Hint: Promotions:
Find a job at Mom's house. The pop up box will say something similar to The bus will pick you up at Mimi's house at 8:00". You must move there on the scooter. Go to work in a good mood. You should get promoted the first time you go to work. Next, check on the job box at the bottom of the screen (press the right arrow). Complete the skill points overnight, then get them into a good mood ready for work the next day. If you really want them to be promoted for the next day, then try taking a day off work (do not bother going). Keep doing this for every promotion. Eventually you should move from one home to another. Note: This may not always work -- you might need family friends as well.
steve.

Hint: Skipping work:
In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by moving back into Mom's house. While you live with Mom, the bus will not arrive, and you do not have to work. This is useful if things are not going so well and you need some time to "restore" your Sim.
Sebuzzie.

In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by changing jobs before the bus arrives. Later, you can just change back to your old job. This is useful if you are about to get fired. Note: You will only get fired if you skip work two or three times in a row.
Sebuzzie.

It is easy to lose your job when you do not go to work for two or three days. When this happens you will get a phone call saying that you have been fired. Even if you do not answer the phone, a message will appear stating that you lost your job. Your Sim will be unemployed, but it will not be the end of the game. Getting fired gives you a chance to raise your Sim's motives, build some missing skills, or make more friends to help you advance in your career when you start your job again. However, when you get your job back you must start at the same slot that you were before. This means you are going to have to work hard again to get promoted and be able to move out.
simeon arzaga.

In the Bustin Out mode, if you have unlocked every visit location you can go anywhere. Go to someone's house and visit them as long as desired. When message stating that the bus arrives in two hours appears, ignore it and continue what you are doing and miss work. There will be no phone call or warning. You can roam around anytime as long as desired, and visit anyone.
AngeGarga.

If you decide to skip work two days in a row, do the following things to avoid being fired. Sell all the phones or build a wall around them so that no one can answer them. When you miss work you will get a phone call. If no one answers the phone the game will think that you did go to work, giving you another day off. You can have as many days off as you desired, provided that no one answers the phones.
Alana Banana.

Hint: Never work:
In Bustin' Out mode, the people who you live with (who you can control) cannot get fired. If you want them to stay home, just let them. This can be very useful if you need them to clean up, or need them to do some other things.
Sebuzzie.

If you do not want to keep a job, use this strategy. Stay with your mom to raise your skills then get a job. Make sure that you raise Creativity, Mechanical, and Cooking (slightly), because those are most important skills. Get a job, and if desired, get promotions to unlock places. When you get to a place that you think would suit you do not go to work. You will lose your job and perhaps a skill point, but you will keep playing. Since you already unlocked the places, you may now work on the necessary things. If your creativity and mechanical are at 10 (Logic also) you can make gnomes, sculptures, and mutant plants that will help you gain money. Once you have full skills in everything, work on making friends. Then, get a job and complete the other goals. This will enable you to unlock everything.
David W.

Hint: Never sleep:
Enable the "Cheat Gnome" and "Raise motives" codes. Select the Cheat Gnome and choose the "Fill all motives" cheat. Repeat as needed. You will then never actually "have" to sleep.
emily.

Hint: Never pay bills:
Any time you get bills in the mail, build a fence around both doors (front and back). Make sure the fence is as small as possible. Select "Pay Bills" and your Sim will move towards the mail box but will get stuck in the fence, then turn around and go back in the house. Make sure that you did not place the fence so they cannot get back in. The bills are now gone.

Hint: Live alone:
Use the following trick if you want to take the day off and control another Sim, and do not want to mess with it. When your roommates go to work, leave and return after the time they come back from work. You will be able to live alone. Alternately, you can build a small room in the back yard, with a door. Go into it, call the other person over, and leave once they get there. Then, go to build mode and delete the door.

Hint: Catch a robber:
Enable the "All objects unlocked" code. Buy a motion sensor alarm and place at your front door on the wall. If you have a backdoor, do same thing there. This security costs only 300 Simoleons, instead of buying walls at the corner of your street and putting burglar alarms there.
ZeratulX100.

Build a wall at each corner of the map that a burglar can approach from and place a burglar alarm at every wall. The burglar will be caught before entering the house.

Hint: Get rid of annoying Mom:
At the beginning of Busting' Out mode, you will start out living with Mom. She will keep talking and say things like "What did I do to deserve this?" or "When are you going to find a job?"

Hypnotize her, walk away, then put a wall around her. That will take care of her. However, when you move out she will wake up. You must take her somewhere quiet so that if you make noise with a radio or television she will not wake up.

GLENN G TEASLEY.

Eat dinner with someone. They will use the bathroom. While they are in there, watch television. When they leave, highlight them and the "Propose" option should appear.

Kurt.

Because you must marry a Free street, if you do not like their personality or clothes, evict them in freeplay mode then change them. Note: You will also have to remake their house. If you try this with Ginger, before you do anything with her, fill up all her stats (glitch and she will like anything). When you now want to get married to her, she will never stay long enough so you can propose. Her fun will go up and she will leave. Make sure your relationship is at 100 and feed her, dance twice, then propose.
Kyle Kowalsky.

Make a meal, then call your mate over. Sit and eat with him or her. Let him or her go to the bathroom, then have him or her join you. When he or she gets up, propose. Note: You must be at your house.

Hint: Same sex marriage:
It is possible to "marry" someone of the same sex. Do the same steps to propose, but the "Propose" option will be changed to "Move In". If your partner agrees, he or she will then be part of the household, which is the same as marrying an opposite sex Sim. However if it is a goal, it is recommended that you marry the opposite sex, because you cannot have a baby with a same sex partner, thus, making it difficult to complete that goal.

If you do not want to kiss the Sim, press R to speed up time. More messages will appear about kissing the sim or stating that the daydream will be over soon. After a few quick minutes in the game, another puff of smoke appears. This time, your mom appears from the smoke. She will ask you to stop daydreaming and say that Malcolm is taking your scooter. After that happens, the daydream ends and you begin the game. Also, during the "Daydream Sequence" if you do not want to be near the Sim you have to kiss, move away by using the "Go Here" queue. However, when you move, the other Sim will just follow you. Note: When you are in the "Daydream Sequence", you cannot interact with anything.

Mcairns65.

When using the Tesla Coil, pause game play, You can sell the lighting balls for 50 Simoleons each.
Dschaechiej671.

This trick works in both Busting Out and Free Play modes. Go into buy mode with the walls. Take the black fence and put it on both sides of the door. Then, have a Sim walk in or out the door. Go back into buy mode while they are still walking out. Pick that fence again and tear it down. You will get 80 Simoleons for the first three to five times. After that, it is only worth only 20 Simoleons. This may be done as many times as desired.

Buy a workbench. Make a lot of gnomes or flamingos and sell them.
KarenZme.

At the beginning when you move into any house, find Malcolm. Wait until he is outside. Pause game play and build a gate around him. After awhile he should give you money.
Johnn Cunningham.

When you want to move out of someone's house and you have purchased everything to the very last Simoleon, you normally must pay back what you have left to the owner. To avoid doing this, move out when all the people have gone to work.
Kylecnvs215.

First, make two single families (opposite gender). Have the girl live on 1st Street, and the boy on 2nd Street. Make the boy on 2nd Street have just a wall with a telephone. Then, switch to the girl and play as her. Build a house and wait until the boy comes over. Become friends with him and fall in love. Get married and you will have an extra 20,000 Simoleons in your pocket. Buy the diving board with no swimming pool underneath. Have either the boy or girl jump off it about ten times. When that Sim is dead, either sell or place his or her grave. To get even more money, repeat the process, but this time make the same gender of the person you killed live on the street with the wall and telephone. This trick is useful until you max out your buy and build.
cristen.

JmeNicole13.

Enable the "Extra money" code, then replace all your items with better versions of them. When you move out, they will owe you a lot of money.
Hailey Wood.

Go to Free Play mode and evict the families already there. Then, make one good family and send them into different lots. Sell all the walls, widows, and anything else until you see only grass. Then, make more families and only put walls, widows, and doors until they are broke. Next, move your good family in, delete the items again, and repeat. Note: This may take some time and you may have to delete some families.
rickey feilds.

If you get below 30 Simoleons and need money, wait and your phone will ring. The person on the phone will give you money. It can be anywhere from over 100 Simoleons.
Colby Ford.

Hint: Easy house improvements:
When you are trying to improve a house, upgrade everything to the highest possible level. If you run out of money, move out (they will repay you), then move back in. This will upgrade the house so that your Sim can live comfortably and you will not lose any money.
Nick.

Hint: Easy car:
When you are at Casa Calenta, Club Rub, or any of the places that have the goal "Get Married", when creating the Sim you will marry, have him or her bring a child along. By doing this, when you get to Malcolm's Mansion you will unlock a car without working for it.
Jaycee Stewart.

Hint: Easy game:
At the beginning of the game, fill all your skills at Mom's house to 100%, then get a job (preferably one that makes a lot of money) and move - out. When you arrive enable the "Cheat gnome" code. Every time your Sim gets a unhappy, use enable the "Fill all motives". You now have all the time needed to make friends and complete goals.
Cassandra Smith.

Hint: Mirror reaction:
When creating your Sim in a new game (Bustin' Out mode) or creating a family (Free Play mode), rotate your Sim until he or she is facing directly at the mirror behind them. Once done, your Sim (if a male) will bend down to the mirror, take his hand, and rub his chin smiling. If it is a female, she will turn her body sideways and look at herself in the mirror.
KrazyKyle199102.

Hint: Triple time:
To make time go by faster than "double time" (from pressing R) when sleeping, control another Sim in the house and make them go to sleep. If both Sims are sleeping, time will go by much quicker.
sugarpie_honeybun2.

Hint: Throw a great swimming pool party:
In any mode, buy a swimming pool and a high diving board to go over it. Then, throw a party. Barbecue some hamburgers and have a blue drink cooler.. Once the party starts, put on some music. All the Sims will be swimming in the pool. Note: Buy a Heligraphix Video Game and place it outside, where the pool is located.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Changing personality when creating your Sim:
When your changing your Sims personality, they will give you a little demonstration of how they would react to other Sims. For example, if you change their personality of a girl Sim and you select "Active", she will jump and dance as Mimi does on a "Bounce My Booty Dance Floor" at a party.
KrazyKyle199102.

Hint: Kill Chase at Pixel Acres:
At Pixel Acres it is possible to kill Chase. Do this by buying the most expensive fireplace, and putting two wooden crates next to it. Note: Put the fire at the back of Pixel Acres, where the waterfall thing is located. Have Chase light a fire. The fire should spread, eventually killing Chase. When you move back, you may hear a strange noise, and a message may appear stating, "I'm OK...Are you OK?". Then, Chase may start walking around. You will hear noises every so often.
Sjbyres.

Hint: Quickly kill Sims:
Purchase a high diving board in free play mode. You do not have to place it over the pool. Position it over the patio. The Sims will jump onto the tile and smack their face into the ground. If you purchase a glass coffee table, you can place it under the diving board. When the Sim jumps from the diving board, they will do a face plant into the glass table and immediately die. The Grim Reaper will not even appear; they will just turn into a tombstone.
robin prosser.

Jump off a diving board under the patio or tile with a glass table and no Grim Reaper. Once you see their grave, sell it. Note: This only works with Sims who you can control, mostly in Freeplay mode. You can also set a fire and then sell the grave.
Arielle Henry.

Hint: Kill Sims with mutant plant:
Buy an Incubator from the skill point raising items in buy mode. Then, have your Sim incubate a mutant plant. Next, feed and water the mutant plant until it grows then stop watering it. If you watch it, the plant will eventually get hungry and thirsty (a thought bubble will appear above it). Wait about a day longer then have your Sim stand in front of the plant. If the plant is hungry enough, it will either attack your Sim or eat your Sim whole.
Romigfamily.

To feed the mutant plant with friends or a Maid, you will need an incubator and fully grown mutant. When you have a fully grown mutant, do not water it for four days or until it attacks people. Make sure you have hired a maid or invited a friend to your house. The maid or friend should go over and get eaten by the mutant. A grave and message will appear.
Anne Ingram.

When living in a house in free mode, incubate a mutant plant and wait until it grows to be as big as possible. Then, throw a party. Cook food or barbecue hamburgers. When the guest Sims go to the bathroom, press Start and place the mutant plant in the bathroom that they are in. Then, take the door away, sell it, or put it somewhere else.. Your mutant plant will eat your guests.. Note: The mutant only eats one Sim at a time . Gravestones should appear.
matthew gargano.

Hint: Kill mutants:
To kill mutants instantly, you need an incubator and a grave or news paper. Buy an incubator. Once you have a paper or grave, put it on the incubator where the mutants are. Then have your Sim select the incubator and make them incubate. A mutant should start forming. When the mutant is made, it should fuse with the paper or grave, then disappear.
Anne Ingram.

Hint: Kill Sims with fire:
In free play mode, when you have a grill, place wooden chairs and a wooden table near it. Then, have one of the Sims cook on the grill (or more if it does not work). A fire will start. Have your Sim move toward the flames. If you want to see a show, do not call the fire department or extinguish the fire. Your Sim will then start to burn with the other Sims around watching screaming and crying in terror. The body will collapse to the ground. The grim reaper will appear and walk to the body. The body will turn into a tomb stone and remains there until you sell it.
~the black rose~.

Buy a fireplace and place it in an empty room. Buy some of the crates in buy mode and surround the fireplace with them, but leave a path way leading to the fireplace. Tell a Sim to light the fire. Once they get in the room, sell the door. After the fire is lit, tell the Sim to go to a location in the corner where there are no crates. Then, put more crates in the pathway and in a few seconds the crates will catch fire, and so will the Sim. Also, if you have a fireplace in your living room that you do not want to catch on fire, do not put a rug or a table next to it.
Brooke.

To kill a Sim with a fire, build an empty room outside the house. Then, make a door for the room. Put your Sim in there then call over the Sim you want to kill (unless it is one you can control). Then, go outside and press Start. Before you do anything else, remove the door and buy a lot of chairs to put around the room. Make sure there is enough space in the room for the Sim and a fireplace. Then, buy a fireplace and place it outside the house. Light a fire, then press Start again. Move the fireplace inside the house. The chairs should catch on fire momentarily with the Sim in the house. The Sim will catch on fire. It will scream for a few Sim minutes, then die.
USAking35.

In Free Play or Bust Out mode, buy a White Bear Fur Carpet. This is the one you can relax in. Buy a fireplace and place the carpet in front of the fireplace. Have one of your Sims light a fire, then make them both "Relax" on the carpet. In a little while, the carpet will catch fire, along with your Sims.
jkenny2005.

Hint: Kill Chase:
When living at Pixel Acres, it is possible to kill Chase. It is very similar to killing maids and friends, though it only rarely works.
Anne Ingram.

Hint: Injured Sim:
Buy the Official Diving Platform and place it on the ground. Do not put a pool under the diving board. Make your Sim do a swan dive, back flip, or a triple flip. He or she will land on their head and begin to rub it and groan. Note: Your Sim cannot die from this.
LaRaePHCO.

Hint: Torture Sim:
Buy some walls and a Bug Lamp. Make a small box, big enough to fit your Sim and the Bug Lamp. Make him or her turn it on. Then, make him or her touch it. They will fall down and scream.
gettbackackerz.

Hint: Ghost maid:
Kill the maid in any way possible, then select the phone and hire another maid. The new maid will be a ghost, and can now walk through walls and clean your house faster.
Anne Ingram.

Hint: Ghost child:
In Free mode, get a wife and kids. Take one or two of your children and place them in a room with no doors . Wait for your child to starve to death. After he or she dies, place the gravestone in the backyard by a dead tree and flower bush. Put the dead tree on the side of the gravestone and the flower bush in front of the gravestone. Wait until the next night. After midnight, you will hear strange music. You will then see your ghost child. He or she will be making scary noises. Sometimes your television will turn on by itself. He or she will walk around the house until 6:30 a.m., then disappear. This will continue on every other night, unless you sell the gravestone, dead tree, and flower bush.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Make your house haunted:
Create a family of four. Choose two Sims that you do not like and buy a high diving board with no swimming pool. Place the diving board over a glass coffee table in buy mode. Select one of the Sims then click the diving board and scroll down the list of suggestions. Select "Swan Dive", "Back Flips" or "Double Flip". Your Sim will jump and die . Repeat this with another Sim. After they both die, place the gravestones next to a dead tree and a flower bush in front of the stones. The next night, you will hear strange music and see the ghost Sims you just killed walking around the house, making scary noises. This will go on every other night until you sell the gravestones, dead tree, and flower bushes. You can repeat this to get more ghosts.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Contact the dead:
Note: Before doing this you must have your house haunted. It must also be dark as well . In Free or Bustin' Out mode, go to buy mode. Then, go into "Miscellaneous" and look for the Seance Table. Buy and place it in a fun room or the living room. Next, buy a chair or two . Then, choose a Sim and select the Seance Table. Choose "Contact The Dead". Your Sim will go into a trance when he or she starts it . After about two seconds, you will hear strange music. You will then see the ghosts that are haunting your house. After completing the seance, a message will appear on the screen indicating that you have exorcised the ghosts and that they will rest in peace. Note: This can also be done at Goth's Manor to get rid of the ghosts and complete the goal.
AngeGarga.

Hint: Avoiding fires:
Sell the range and buy a microwave.
marks.

Enter the options, then go to "Free Will" and turn it off. By doing this, you can tell your Sims to go do something else or call the fire department.
angeldoggy212.

To avoid setting the stove on fire you must have at least 2 skill points in cooking.
Justin Behrens.

Hint Moving objects other than furniture:
Use the following trick when newspapers, or sometimes empty plates are in your way. Press Start, then choose "Buy" or "Build". Select the newspaper or plate and move it instead of waiting for your Sim to put it inside, or throw it away. This does not always work on every plate, and only rarely works with pizza boxes.
Christopher Alford.

Hint: House already filled with objects:
Take a single Sim and move them into 1, 2, or 3 Free Street. Then, fill the house with anything you can afford. Note: It is better to keep at least 100 Simoleans. After that, move another Sim into a different house on Free Street. Have the two Sims get married in the Sim that was moved in second's house. Make another Sim and move them into the house the first Sim used to live in. In that house will be everything that the previous owner had. The house will cost more, but you will have almost everything you wanted without having to buy it yourself.

Hint: Avoiding death:
When in free play mode, study cooking before you try to cook.
kenorory.

Hint: Cheap fire alarm:
If you do not have the time to study Cooking and do not want to buy a Fire Alarm, do the following. When your Sim is hungry and needs to cook, save the game before doing so. If a fire starts, press Start and quit without saving. The fire will not be saved and it will be as if it had never happened. You can also do this with other things such as burglars, getting fired, etc.

Hint: Phone calls:
If you get a phone call saying "Think before you open the door" or "They are coming soon. Be warned", it could mean a robber will arrive soon or nothing at all. If you get a phone call saying " Friendships are like plants", talk to the Sim you are close to 50% liking and raise it to 100% liking. That Sim will be your friend for a longer time. Do this to all of your friends so you will not have to worry about friends in the near future.
**SiMs**GaMeR**.

Hint: Stupid Sim behavior:
Start spinning on the Abdominator and your Sim will begin barking like a dog.
imreboy.

This trick requires an Invention Work Bench and a Teppan Yaki Table (the most expensive appliance). Have your Sim go on the workbench and make a Rocket Gnome. Put the gnome onto the frying part of the table and have your Sim select "Kick" or "Launch". if you select "Kick", your Sim will kick the table. If you select "Launch" your Sim will stick their head into the frying part of the table, and appears to try to kill itself.
Anne Ingram.

Create a Sim that is outgoing and playful, then make another Sim to be that Sim's spouse. Get the Vibromatic Heart Bed and make the shy Sim select "Vibrate" and "Play In Bed". After that, highlight the other Sim and select the Social "Play In Bed." When they are done, the shy Sim will celebrate and you will hear music.
Evingtonirbys.

Hint: Deleting object warning:
You should not delete all the objects such as wallpaper, flooring tiles and paintings. When you get the two promotions you need for your job, you must move to a new house and have to pay back all the money for the things that you deleted.
Felicity Ramsay.

Hint: Marilyn Manson Sim:
When creating a Sim in Freeplay mode, enter "Manson" as a last name, and "Marilyn" as a first name. Then, select the hair that has the black hat with hair/bangs coming down to the left of the face. Select the formal suit as a shirt and suit pants for pants. If done correctly, your Sim should appear similar to Marilyn Manson. Also, his Sim face icon (that appears when you pick your street), is dark and speckled with purple, green, and dark blue.
Carl Heade.

Hint: The Sims reference:
Look closely at the back of Dudley's trailer. You will see a trashed car with a missing wheel. This vehicle is from the original Sims. It was your career vehicle until you got promoted two or three times.
USAking35.

Hint: Splinter Cell reference:
When your making your Sim, if you remain idle about five minutes, a character that resembles Sam from the Splinter Cell will try to enter your house, but ultimately smashes his head in the window.
David Earl.

Glitch: Hovering snacks:
This trick requires the television with nine screens. When you have it, go to the buy or build menus and press A just in front of the snack dispenser. The options should have "TV" and a blank selection. Choose the blank selection, and you will have a snack that does nothing but hover.
Anne Ingram.

Glitch: Locked car:
In Busting Out mode, if your Sim is married make them look exactly like their husband or wife. The game will think that you are using the husband or wife. Note: This rarely works.
Anne Ingram.

Glitch: Broken sink:
When your Sim is washing dishes and a lot of people are around you, the sink may get broken with your Sim still washing the dishes. Note: The Sim stops washing when he or she is in a very bad mood.
Jaycee Stewart.

Glitch: Skip work:
Normally when your Sim skips work for a day by not catching the bus when it arrives, about an hour later the phone will ring with your Sim's boss either warning you to come to work the next day or be fired; or your boss actually firing you. If none of your Sims answers the phone when it rings after your Sim skips work, the warning message that your Boss normally transmits to you does not appear, and you can skip work without losing your job or being warned to show up the next day.
Ryan Jones.

Glitch: Missing roommate(s):
During Bustin Out mode, you can make your roommates disappear, especially in Max and Goldie's gym, which is one of the areas where you can control at least one of your roommates when you move there. There are three prerequisites for this to work. First, make sure that you and your room mate(s) both have a job. Second, make sure that you get off of work a few hours before your room mate(s) do. For example, if your Sim works from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., then your roommate(s) will need to work until at least 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. for this glitch to work. If your roommate gets home before you do, then the glitch will not work. Third, make sure that you have friends and locations visit (for example, Dudley's Trailer, Mimi's House, etc.), If you have the prerequisites met, follow these directions. Make sure that your roommate(s) are gone when executing this glitch for it to work. First, make sure your Sim has high motives so that he will be an a good mood to visit someone. While your roommate(s) are gone, hop in the vehicle that you have in front of your house (i.e., super scooter, go kart, etc.), and visit one of your friends (such as Dudley's trailer, Club Rubb, etc.) for a few hours. Make sure your visit ends later than when your room mate(s) normally arrives home. When you are done visiting, return to the place that you are living at. If done correctly, your roommate(s) will be gone for the rest of the day and night, and will not return until the next time they get off their shifts. Thus, you will have the house to yourself for the rest of the day and night. Also, if you visit a friend again on the next day before your roommate(s) return from work, they will be gone for another day and night. Note: If you do this glitch, although it will not affect your fellow Sim's work status (such as getting your roommate fired, as the game will assume that your roommates are at work on the days that they "disappear"), it may affect your social status with those Sims, since you will not be able to interact with them until they return on the next day. You will automatically lose relationship points with other Sims each day unless if you interact with them. One other thing to note is that this glitch will not work in free mode because your Sims do not have a vehicle to visit people with or move out with.
Ryan Jones.

Glitch: Nude Sim:
When living at Pixel Acres, purchase a Bug Zapper. Place it next to the showers. First, tell your Sim to turn it on, then take a shower. Have your Sim touch it when he or she is finished. If done correctly, your controller will vibrate, and the Sim will fall without the pixellated censor.
