  1. THey doesn’t work, have you tested it? Only money is working: not age, not happy…..please ceck and let us know

  2. They don’t properly explain some of these cheats in the book, I found.

    First, type in TestingCheatsEnabled true

    Then, SHIFT Left Click on the mailbox for the following:
    1. Force service sim (warning, if you have a child or younger, & click on social worker, the child will get taken away).
    2. Force visitor
    3. Make friends for me
    4. Make me know everyone
    5. Make happy (everyone)
    6. Make motives static/dynamic

    For sim related,Shift Left Click on particular sim:
    1. Modify Traits
    2. Add to household (if not already in)
    3. Age Transition

    For job related choices, choose the active sim with a job. Go into neighbourhood view & then Shift + Left Click on the job location:
    1. Force Opportunity
    2. Force Event
    3. Force All Events

    I haven’t been able to figure out shazaam yet, but I did find that once you Shift Left Click on the ground somewhere, you can Teleport there.
    Hope this helps!

  3. ya thanks to poohka rabbit, those work all of um… shazaam doesnt work dno why…

    any1 know a cheat to max out skills???

  4. Ohkay Ladies.. i have not really been into doing it the easy way yet, always cheating to get my skills up and stuff before i do anything.. but heres what i found:

    If your trying to build up skills, and you do not yet know the cheat for it, turn aging off. Options-Settings-EnableAging (untick the box) = Done.

    I do know a heck of cheats, but most have been said already and others are just little helpers you dont really need.

    Best of luck guys

  5. Yea someone please tell me why edit in cas doesn’t work! Also, I need to know if add to household will let you choose to make them have a certain relationship like sister or mother or brother.

  6. umm yea, i had a family for a while now and i love them but wen i had children they came out ugly and i just cant play with ugly children!!! I need “edit in cas” but it doesn’t work. Plzzz if you know any other cheats you would be a lifesaver.

    ps like seriously you would be a lifesaver cuz i’m gonna have to kill the children if they stay ugly.

  7. to change change face all u have to do is go to mirror and click change appearance
    clothes click on wardrobe and then plan outfit

  8. lifetime points (type shazaam you might not have to) and then hold control and click between the lifetime chest and you points (+500 for every click!!!!)

  9. I’ve been reading around about the age thing cuz I accidentally made James Bond old and bald by transitioning him older. I need him young and good-looking!! From what I’ve found is that you need a mod to do the CAS. If I find the mod I will let ya’ll know.

  10. I have a cheat that you probably all know, it is “testingcheatsenabled true”, but type it and if you click and drag on the mood tablets, they will go up and down, with your cursor. Thankyou! Good luck everyone!
