    What does, “Note 2: You can move your Sims’ status bars as desired by clicking and dragging (hygiene, energy, fun, etc.).” mean?? I can’t figure out how to do this. Can someone explain it better?

  10. Danielle says:

  14. Sarah says:

    Is there any cheat codes to get more money for my samsung solstice phone?

  15. Tom says:


    it means when you activate the cheat code testingcheatsenabled true you can click on the health bars to drag them up. So if you sim was hungry you could drag the bar up so it wasnt hungry anymore.

  16. Rachel says:

    How can i make my sim change clohes like normal people,instead of “spinning”, and how can i take the “blur” away when theyre using the bathroom?.. After all you dont get blurred in real life.

    i think its a bug!!!

  22. lucy says:

    i love my sims 3 for the PC its awsome!!! i ned this fro my locker llol

  23. Haley says:

    Try this I always use it. type exactly this without the ” ” “testingcheatsenabled true” yes there is a space before true. SHIFT click on the mail box there you go! click make needs static, their needs are always at 100% or set career you can choose any career. with the sims 3 ambitions testingcheatsenabled true allows you to drag your profession bar up, like for stylist, inventor, etc. hope I helped!

  24. Haley says:

    ps the set career allows you to go to sports legend (10) instantly! does not help with ltw. you can chift click on any lot to build/buy there instantly or teleport with shift click! shift clicking on your active person allows you to trigger age transition, and change fav music or traits. shift clicking on another person allows you to add to active fam. delete them. or change music. note adding people to your family this way still doesn’t help the wish of havig someone move in with them.

  25. Khierson says:

    Forgot to put this cheat in:
    Enter this : Familyfunds ( family last name) (amount you want)
    * Don’t forget to space where I put a space or it won’t work, and it won’t work unless the family you want money for is your active family.

  26. Hakeem says:

    every since i started playing i cant stop.but im knda tried of the same stuff over and over what to do now

  27. britney says:

    any way to make the property line bigger, like how you could in sims put objects and walls and stuff past the property line?

  28. Lilli says:

    An easy way to kill your sims(sims 3,pc): build a room, put a door there, let your sims walk into the room, go to build mode, remove the door, go to live mode, then wait intil your sims die of starvation(dont feed them, let them have shower, go to bed…anything, let them suffer) also, you get cool things if you explore the catacombs in the graveyard, you get better things at night.

  29. Daisy says:

    Wow, the cheats are awesome, I don’t have the game by am going to get it for the xbox but for now I can use my friends game! Yay![:

  30. Marie says:

  32. Loren says:

  33. Amanda says:

    I have entered testingcheatsenabled to drag the the fun etc. bar up or down but it wont work am I doing something wrong?

  34. Amanda says:

    Nvm i found out how to do it :). And to pull the game down without having to save and quit just do ctrl alt esc then your game will pull down to the bottom of the screen then when you want to go back to your game just click it and it will come up again.

  35. indira says:

    this rocks!

  36. Sarah says:

    none of the cheats work for me!!what can i doo!!
    I think im doing something wrong when entering them…
    can somebody help mee??

  37. eric says:

    this game is worth it and it is the greatest sim game if you buy ALL expansion and stuff packs

  38. Darrah says:

    I found a cool glitch to get loads of Lifetime Happiness points. For this to work, you need World Adventures. Use ctrl shift alt c to open the cheat window, then type in testingCheatsEnabled true. Then have one (or more) of your Sims travel to one of the three places (Shang Sim La, Champs Les Sims, or Al Simhara). Once they get there, go to the page where their lifetime happiness points are, hold down shift, and click underneath the treasure chest. Click away until you have as many points as you want. You don’t even have to use shazaam!

  39. Dez Chill says:

    could someone explain in detail how to use edit in cas? is this possible after sim is already in the household; and does this require “testingcheatsenabled true” or i simply have to type “edit in cas” in the cheat box? thanks.

  40. Kristen78122 says:

    Hey so i use testingcheatsenabled true and u have to spell it in one word except from true and it is awesome because not only can you drag your needs up but you can also hold shift and click the mail box. this will give you many options … like set career , force NPC (a person from a career, such as the Grim Reaper) you can also click make needs dynamic which will keep your sims need 100% untill you quit the game. you can also teleport yourself to anywhere you want in your town by click where and click teleport (you might need to hold shift) Also, you can hold shift and click your sim and adjust their traits and change your fav music, plus you can trigger your age. When you hold shift and click a sim from your town that you are not controling you can trigger another sims age and add them to your active household.

    P.S to kill someone faster than trapping them in a room use testingcheatsenabled true and hold shift and click your sim and trigger their age transition until your person is past elder. Hope i helped :)

    I’ve had too much fun with SIMS3 – In order to quit smoking I started playing this game – haven’t smoked in 6 mo. Anyway as a reward I have purchased all the Sim3 add-ons and even purchased Sim2 Deluxe. I tried Sim2 but not as fun. (I use cheats on both). So I’m sticking with Sim3 and Dragon Age: Origins.

    You can not change your characters features in Sims3 – HINT to DEVELOPERS: Need an add-on or upgrade where as the Sims can pay for or earn Life Happiness points for PLASTIC SURGERY – ie: Chin, NOSE, Cheeks, LIPS, even Chi Chi’s etc.!!!!!!!!! Also, Make it so your Sim can PURCHASE CONTACTS of Different EYE COLORS!!!!!
    Add-on for weight gain foods!!! Also when these changes are made – make it so the other Sims NOTICE the changes – good or bad etc.

    GIFT GIVING – Bribes, Be creative SIMS3 DEVELOPERS! Also a BIGGY – Make is more difficult for those that are married not to be easily taken in by a flirting sim – And if a Sim married partner cheats or flirts back allow their partner to slap them right away.

    Another thing on Love and Marriage – another feature should to added so one can tell if the Sim is in love – really love – madly in love – crazy in love etc.

    And for SeaTart sakes more traits – but traits in order of strength 1 being the prominent to the least…

    Change the Dialog circle to in ‘Stop Flirting with ….. and allow Slap to that flirting party too) It should make thing for realistic…hehehehehe!

    CHEATS: The FASTEST way to KILL a SIM is to be in – testingcheatsenable true – and shift/click on the Sim you want dead –
    ADD TO FAMILY – then move their hunger bar all the way down and Starve them. I am really mean and make them ‘pee themselves first to draw attention and them kill them… This is a great way to the ‘Gold Diggers’ in killing off their mates!

    I’d like to know where to send in recommendation on improving this game – I have a number of them and I’m sure many of you do too!

    Akayla Furrows!

    I have typed in “shazaam” a thousand times and it never works. What am I doing wrong?

  43. Madi says:

    If you want your sims to life forever, just go to options and click on Stop Aging.

  44. Lizi says:

    I was playing last night and the adjusting your sims healthbars. I tried doing this and it wouldn’t let me. I have Testingcheatsenabled true set but nothing happens. Help?

  45. Melissa says:

    I agree with Akayla Furrows
    They need more detail instead of making them fat make their boobies bigger :P

  46. analynn says:

    the only two codes who work for me are motherlode (witch i knew before..) and kaching (witch is useless since i already knw for motherlode..) but i tried shazaam and it didn’t work and i tried make happy and it didn’t worked.. i tried with and without space.. can anbody tell me what could be wrong?

  47. marie says:

    Note 1: This code must be enabled before entering Create-A-Sim mode.

    – i don’t quite get this.. you must type all the codes before even creating family so they can work later or what. i really don’t get it and codes just don’t work :(

  48. Hunter says:

  49. Rima says:
