The Sims Cheats, Codes, Cheat Codes

The Sims is a strategic life simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts in 2000. It is a simulation of the daily activities of one or more virtual people ("Sims") in a suburban household near a fictional city. Players control customizable Sims as they pursue career and relationship goals. Players can also use their Sims' income to renovate their living space, purchase home furnishings, or clothing for their household. Players can also choose to pursue a social and successful life.

Quick money:
Enable cheat mode and enter the klapaucius code.
Display the cheat prompt again and type:
(up to sixty total commands may be entered).

Don't pay the bills:
turn on the "Move_objects on" cheat.
When ever the mailman delivers the mail, have a sim retrieve it.
Then go into build mode, and use the hand, grab the bills,
and press delete, or drag to the bottom of the screen.

Don't pay the maid:
Turn on the "Move_objects on" cheat. After the maid finishes her job,
go into build mode, select the hand, grab the maid, and press delete,
or drag to the bottom of the screen. You will have to have a sim call
the maid service again you will keep your simonians.

Instant good mood:
Turn on the "move_objects on" cheat. Get the hand tool in build mode,
and select the sim you want to put in a good mood. Grab him, and drag
to the bottom of the screen, he will reappear somewhere in the house
will all his "mood bars" full.

How to Skip School:
To have your child sim skip school all you have to do is select them,
click on the book shelves (buy one if you don't have one), and click
on study.

Garbage Bag of Holding
In the early stages of The Sims life time is often wasted emptying
the trash and bringing it to the curb. I found that if you fill the
cheap 30 simolian trash barrel you can order your sim to empty it
and just as they remove the bag cancel the order. Then order them to
pick up the mess that they just made and they will return the full
bag to an empty barrel, which will now be empty. Do this every time
it fills and trash need never be brought outside to the curb again.
This saves a lot of time.

Paying the Bills
Simply keep a bill, unpaid, until the mail carrier delivers the
next set. When your flag is up (your mailbox being full of what else,
more bills), pay the first one (i.e., bring it out to the mailbox.)
When you do this, the newer bills disappear. Using this cheat, you
will only have to pay every other bill, instead of every one.

Building a Castle in the Clouds
Large second-floor extensions to a house, or even an entire house in
the air, can be built totally unsupported by the following method.
First, lay out a complete ground layer of pillars. You'll need lots
to form a surface to build on. Next build your second-floor home on
top of these pillars. It's important that you do ALL the structural
work at this point; get all the walls placed and floors put in. Don't
forget the stairs! Next, simply switch to the ground floor, and delete
all the pillars. The house will remain standing, completely unsupported
by anything except thin air! Voila! A castle in the clouds for your Sims!

Raise Sims Mood Bars
When using the move_object cheat you can restore your Sims mood bars
by getting your Sim to sit in a chair, pausing the game and deleting
the chair that your Sim is in. Your Sim will disappear. Unpause the
game and click on your Sims face icon and your Sim will reappear with
some restored bars.

Indoor Swimming Pool
If you want your sims to enjoy a luxurious indoor swimming pool,
delete a single wall panel so that the spot for your pool is open
to the outdoors. The game considers any area in that room to be
outside. Place the pool and then seal off the swimming pool room.
