Hints

Ground Swimming

If you have a pool, make your sim go swimming, then pick up and move your sim out of the pool. (you'll have to type in moveobjects on first to do so) Your sim will swim everywhere for the rest of his or her life, but they can still do everything. If you tell them to do something, such as go to bed, they will pop out of the ground and go to bed. They will sink back down afterward.


Flaming Toilet

To get a flaming toilet, you have to get any kind of toilet except the stalled kind. When you get a toilet go into the decoration folder and the click the misc. folder then you get the Burning plate. Once you get it, place the toilet on top of the burning plate and turn it on then you even get to use it without burning yourself and it won't do any damages to your beautiful home!


Altered Cheats

For this one put shift+control+c and press tab. A list of cheats or cheats with slight alteration will appear one at a time. For all of them you need to keep pressing it.


Sideways Garage

This will only work on corner lots. Lay down the first driveway as you regularly would. type moveobjects on cheat. delete sidewalk across the road. place extension peice(should be rotated already). put wall around extension peice and add a garage door. Add your cars then you are done.

Free Bookcase Skills

Buy a bookcase, then have your sim start to study. Interrupt the action so that the book it placed on the ground, then simply sell the bookcase. The book can then do everything the bookcase could have done for free.


Disgusting Faces

There is a glitch in character creation mode where you can make absolutely disgusting faces. The trick is that if you go to the face designing area and you select a face part such as the eyes and max out all the sliders one way or the other, then go to a different face part and select one of the PREDESIGNED parts, and then come back to the eyes, the sliders will have reset in the middle, but the eyes will still look the same. This works for all of the face adjusting tabs. Exploiting this, you can make eyes the size of dinner plates, cheekbones 4 feet long, and a HUMUNGOUS nose, to name a few.


Saving Pizza Money

Have a sim call for pizza. When the pizza delivery guy comes DON'T accept the pizza! The pizza delivery guy will eventually leave the pizza on the front porch, and the pizza will never get stale. You can stack as many pizzas as you want, so if your sims get hungry, just tell them to get a pizza from the front porch.


Free Furniture

All you have to do to get free Furniture is before you move a family into the house you click on a house that you like and go into it. make sure that it is an empty house so oyu can furnish it. Next select the things that you want in you're home you will notice that you will have a balance of 0 simolaeons but you can still "get" the things after you are done furnishing the house save you're progress and then move you're family into the already furnished home!


Custom Painting

To decorate your house with custom artwork, first your sim must have a creativity level of 5 and be able to paint a still life. Have your sim paint and a frame will appear that you can center on whatever you want to paint. If you want to paint a picture of something outside the Sims 2 game, just press C anywhere at this time. This will pause the game. Use Alt + Tab to exit the game, then open a picture program such as Paint and open the snapshot you just took, it will usually be in the folder: C:My DocumentsEASims2 StorytellingSnapshot.bmp Then, you also have to open the picture you want to have in your game. If your picture is too large resize it so it will fit in the original snapshot from the game. Copy your custom picture on to your snapshot from the game, then save the picture. Use Alt + Tab to get back to your game and your sim will start painting your own custom picture. Using this trick you can put pictures of your friends or family, web pictures, or anything else in your Sims 2 game.


Listen To Mp3's On Sim Radio

First get whatever Mp3's you want to put on the game, then open up MyDocuments/EAGames/TheSims2/Music/(whatever RadioStation you want your song on). Then, Drag your MP3 into the folder. Now, start Sims 2 then go to options menu, then music settings, then the Radio Station, then pick witch songs you want the radio to play. You can now listen to your favorite songs in your Sims game.


Use Your Own Videos For The TV

It's possible to watch your own videos on the Sim-TV. You must put the video you want into MyDocuments/EaGames/TheSims2/Music/(the TV sender you want). If you then turn on the TV in the game you can watch it! The video must be .avi-clips and the clips shouldn't be larger then 128x128 pixel also it shouldn't have more then 15 frames per second.


Aliens!!

You can get abducted by aliens just like in the first one by studying through a telescope a little too long. The only diffrence is that most of the time the person abducted gets pregnant with an alien baby. *NOTE* THIS CAN HAPPEN WITH ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE ADULTS!! MEN INCLUDED!
