More Hints and Tips
Listening to your own music on the sims radio
Being able to listen to your own music is definitely a nice feature and very easy to do. In your computer, go to where you keep all of your .MP3 files, choose which songs you would like to listen to in game and go to "/My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 3/Music/[radio station]" folder and drop them in. Start up your game, go to "Option" menu, select "Music Settings", then choose radio station. Now you can listen to your own music anytime you want.
Have you ever wanted to just play with your Sims forever and know that they will never die? Well, there is a way, and it is quite easy to do. In the Sims 2 you could do it but you had to use a cheat code to do it. In the Sims 3 all you have to do is go to "Options" in game and uncheck the box next to "Aging." Now your Sims can live forever, unless you decide to check the deadly box again.
Buying new clothes
In the Sims 3 you no longer have to go to the shopping mall for sims to get a new outfit. Now all you have to do is go to any dresser and click on the "buy options". When new options open then click on "Plan Outfit". You are aloud to choose up to 3 outfits for each type (everyday, athletic and formal).
New Tricks to Better Game Play
Force Twins- Bring up cheat console, click on pregnant sim, and enter code in cheat console forcetwins That's all there is to it.
Glitch- Free Bookcase- In buy mode, buy a bookcase, have a sim study, interrupt the action so the sim puts the book on the floor, delete the bookcase, now the single book on the floor works as a bookcase.
Avoid death- Go to Pleasant Rest Graveyard.
- Go to bush near the gate (Death Flower Bush)
- Harvest flower and put in your inventory, If you die, then your sim that carries the flower will give it to the grim Reaper and be brought back to life. Note: The flower will not reappear again, but your sim can plant unknown special seeds at level 7 gardening. You can find the seeds in the graveyards. Note: If you have the Green Thumb trait it can help with this tip
Increased chance of having a boy baby- Have your pregnant sim eat apples
Increased chance of having a girl baby- Have pregnant sim eat watermelons
Have more than one baby at once (twins or triplets)- Have one or both parents have the lifetime reward "Fertility Treatment"
One of the surprises that I found was when I sent my sim to the graveyard. When he got there I had him click on the " most dangerous" option and he was able to find 2 magic Seeds. What you can do with them, you have to find out.
Spend More time playing and less time working
Do you want to have more time exploring instead of having to let your sims sleep and work? I know I do. Here's the secret to this dilemma. Open up your cheat console CTRL + Shift + C during game play (as always) and type in testingCheatsEnabled true. This allows you to click on the mailbox, and shift-click sims for extra options, editing, locking and altering motives, etc. The cheats that are enabled will hive you these extra options:
After Entering the Cheat Code hold CTRL+SHIFT+C then hold SHIFT and click your letterbox. This will give you these other options:
- Set Level
- Set Career
- Force Visitor
- Make All Happy
- Add Sims to House
- Change Sim Traits
- Force Aging
In Ground Mode view mode, hold shift and click a spot and your Sim will teleport to that spot!
Exiting the Cheat Screen
So, now that you have figured out how to open the cheat console, you have to beable to close it ater you are done. In the Sims 2 you had to type in Exit but in the sims 3 all you have to do is press the Escape Key to exit the console.
