Cheat codes

First, hit simultanously CTRL + SHIFT + C (CMD + SHIFT + C for Mac version) to bring the cheat window, then type in the Cheat window:

Use at your own risk, and remember that some cheat codes can destroy your lot.

gives you $1000 simoleons
gives you extra $1000 simoleons for every ";!"
allows you to move objects even when they are in use
allows you to put water on your lot
gives a green color to the grass when it has been bulldozed.
displays the interests of the active Sim
sets the autonomy level of your sims
shows little colored dots for the routes your sims are taking.

There's some other cheat codes, but I've never tried them, so I like better not to give them to you. You can find a long list of cheat codes at SimFreaks.

The maid doesn't come any more; my Sims can't go to work./ I've deleted the mailbox. What can I do?
If your sims don't receive any more visits, it's most of the time because a "portal" problem: the mailbox might have been deleted by mistake (haven't you heard that cheats codes can be dangerous to use?). Thank to SimsPlus,you can download for this site a new mailbox.

I have lost my serial code for the Sims. Could you give me yours?

Ok, two suppositions:
- you haven't bought the game but use a copy. Ok... So, no, there's nothing I can do for you. Go in the nearest shop and buy the game, you'll get a serial number.
- you have really bought the game and did really lose your serial number. Well, SimsPlus explains you how to find it again, if you have registered on Maxis site. If not, I'm afraid you will have to call Maxis, and see with them what you can do.

Will the Sims kids become adults?
In the original Sims game, no. Your Sims have a baby, after 3 days the baby becomes a child but the child doesn't gorw up anymore.
But you can use some 3rd-party programs that will allow your Sims kids to grow up, like SimLifeCycle. And please, don't ask me anything about these programs because they only work on Windows and I have a Mac, so I can't try them.

I don't understand what my Sims say... Why?!
People have different languages, depending on where they live. This is also true for virtual people: the Sims speak their own language, the simmish. So don't worry if you can't understand them! =)
