Hints

Baby Hints

Want twins or even Triplets? Then watch the Kids channel on the TV or listen to the childrens music station on the stereo! Doing EITHER activity Slightly Increases the chance for twins or triplets! Doing BOTH at the SAME time really improves your chances of having Twins or Triplets! "Gender". Want a boy or a girl? ! To have a boy. Eat THREE apples during the Pregnancy to increase the chance of having a baby boy! Now if you want a girl! Eat THREE watermelons during the Pregnancy to increase the chance of having a baby girl!


Earn More Money With Guitar

When your sim has enough guitar skill points to unlock the "Play For Tips" option, go to the Theater and play for tips there. You earn a ton of money!


Go Back An Age

To go back an age, all you have to do is enter the testingCheatsenabled true code. Shift click the person whose age you want to change and then go to create-a-sim mode. Their you can change the sim back to a young adult teenager or a nature adult.


Keeping Your Garden Successful.

If your sim is in the gardener career and you find it hard to keep all of your plants watered you can put sprinklers in your garden. The sprinklers help keep the plants watered and makes your garden more successful! I know this works because I have done it! You can find the sprinklers in outdoors activities in buy mode.


How To Age Faster!

If you don't want to sit and wait for your kids to grow from baby to adults, well there is a way to speed it up! It is easy. Just buy a birthday cake and blow out the candles. You can only do this once a day with each person. So if I wanted my baby to grown up I would by a cake and have them blow out the candles then I would wait till the next day and do it over. It isn't hard and if you have the family thing it makes it easier to grow up!


Getting To Pick The Traits For Your Baby!

Your mother sims mood is the best way to get the chance to select your baby's Traits! The happier the mother is. The BETTER! Massage away those backaches, indulge those food cravings! Pamper her every chance! If mother was happy during the prego You get to pick BOTH traits for baby! If she was pretty happy you get to pick one trait! If she was in an okay mood for most of the prego both traits are assigned randomly! A mother unhappy during her prego one is chosen randomly and the second one is pulled from the Negative traits! (evil, snob, neurotic, loner, etc! ) Now if the prego was a disaster of sickness, cravings, and backaches, then both traits will come from the negative trait pool! Now there is one more thing you can do to affect the pergo and increase the chances of getting to pick the two traits! Go down to the bookstore and BUY both Prego books! "Totally Preggers""An Expectant mothers tale and baby incoming" Read them both if you can! It helps alot!


Play YOUR Music In The Sims 3


Step 1: Open the EA folder where The Sims 3 is found and open "The Sims 3" Folder example: my "EA" folder is under Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3
Step 2: Open the "Custom Music" Folder, if you bought a certain Sims 3 Expansion Pack there are a few songs there already. (i deleted them, that's up to you if you want to or not)
Step 3: If you have ITunes, Open that or wherever you have stored your music. Move your favorite songs into the "Custom Music" folder and now your songs will be heard on the radio under "Custom Music"!
Hope this works out for you, It did for me! Excited to say this is my first ever cheat entry xD.


Boy And Girl Twins

Normally in Sims, you can't have fraternal twins (One boy one girl). But there is a way! It's worked for me MANY times.
1) Get the "Fertility Treatment" LifeTime Reward for one or both of the parents
2) Get the mother pregnant (Wait until she actually gets the pregnant moodlet)
3) Go see a sim that is Level 5 or more in the medical carrer and ask to "Determine Gender of Baby".
4) Once the doctor tells you what it is, go to the store and buy the OPPOSITE fruit of that gender. Ex: If it's a girl go buy apples. If it's a boy go buy watermelons. Eat ATLEAST THREE OF THAT FRUIT.
5) Have the pregnant sims watch kids channel and listent to kids radio station at the same time for long periods of time until babies are born (It won't work if it's not twins or triplets)
6) When baby comes go to the hospital. The gender that the doctor said it'll be will be born FIRST then the baby of the opposite gender. If it's triplets usually the third baby is most likely the opposite of the first one.
Note, this may not work if they aren't twins or triplets. Make sure you have room in your household too!


How To Make The Neighborhood Better

If you were wondering how to make all of the houses or buildings around you, this is what you do:
1. I like to make my neighbors house better or just sell the stuff inside, you first need to open the cheatbar and type in "testingceatsenabed true", then you go and click on any residence or building while holding shift and click on build on this lot.
2. While building you can switch to buying anytime you want and you can bring out the sledge hammer tool and sell all of their furniture for some extra cash, the best places to look are in their garage but none of my neighbors have nice cars.


Teleport Without A Teleporting Pad!

You can actually teleport your Sim to wherever you want! (inside of your gaming boundaries of course! ) Make sure that you hit Ctrl+c to enter cheat mode. Turn on testingCheatsenabled true. Say you are in town but you want to go home without driving. Click "view my home" by the camera toggle menu then click anywhere in your house while holding down the 'shift" key and click "teleport me here. " Within seconds your Sim should appear! :).

Short- 25 Sim Days
Medium- 50 Sim Days
Normal- 90 Sim Days
Long- 190 Sim Days
Epic- 960 Sim Days.
