The Sims 3 cheats: A full list of cheat codes for everything you can do in The Sims 3

While only a few games nowadays have the option of using cheat codes, there are plenty of cheat codes in one game to compensate for all. The Sims 3 contains many cheats that allow you to so much as make people smile or age in years and much more. All they do is modify the game a little bit without making a lot of changes into the game.

Tip: Death Flower Bush

Death Flower Bush enables you to delay your death when Grim Reaper visits you. All you got to do is go to the Pleasant Rest Graveyard and find this plant there. You can keep it in your inventory when you find it for later use. Since it can be used only once, make sure you keep it with you for as long as you can. In the same place where you found it, you will see Special seeds that can be planted at Level 7 for new plant growth. That is the stage where the sim comes equipped with gardening skills.

Tip: Lots of Money

You can try and earn a lot of money by honing your writing skills. This way you will earn royalty from your books if you do write novels. When Sim finishes a book, it receives money for many days afterwards. You can earn around 40000 Simoleons weekly in this way.

Tip: Clean Dishes

You can skip washing your dishes by going to the inventory and selling them. Doing this would not fetch you money. However, you will at least do away with the dishes.

Tip: Baby Gender

When you have a Sim that is pregnant, you can decide the baby’s gender too – with a diet of watermelons, you will get a girl; with apples’ diet, you will have a baby boy. The number of fruits will tell you the number of babies you will get.

Tip: Music and Friends

You need to purchase a guitar in order to be the cool guy. We have heard this before, haven’t we? “play for tips” in order to make friends and form crowds in the park where you will be singing. As and when your skill grows, you will befriend People.
