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.
