The Sims 3 hints

Have a Ghost Baby (Without Killing)

How to do it:

  • Set one of your Sim’s traits to Kleptomaniac (Please not the The Sim must be female!)
  • Go to graveyard
  • Wait until Sim steals remains or tell sim to swipe something (remains must be male)
  • On the second day since stealing grave and putting it in home, the ghost will appear at 11:00pm and disappear at 4:00am it will appear every other day
  • Socialize with ghost every night it appears until you are at best friend ghost will then begin appearing every night
  • Get fertility reward
  • Confess attraction to ghost
  • Ask to snuggle on bed, kiss
  • Try for baby every night until you start throwing up
  • Congratulations! You’re now having a ghost’s baby! (It will be born as a ghost that you can control)

Gender of Babies

Must have a pregnant female, Eating apples will increase your chances of having boys!
(i.e. 3 apples = 3 boys)
On the other hand, eating watermelons will increase your chances of having girls!
(i.e. 3 watermelons = 3 girls)
To have increased chances of twins or triplets have one or both parents have the lifetime reward of fertility treatment.
I heard this from someone else. I had my pregnant female eat three watermelons to test it out and it worked! She had 3 triplet girls.

Easy Money

Start writing novels on your computer. Write fiction novels as they take the least amount of time. They will not bring you too much Simoleons. When you write, your skill will automatically advance. If your skill is high enough, you will be able to write more novel types/genres. The most money can be made from “Romance Novels”. You will get royalties for six weeks once you finish a book. With the “Writing” skill maxed out, you can make approximately 40,000 Simoleons every week, which is more than the 34,800 Simoleons you can get by purchasing all neighborhood businesses, and takes less time to achieve. In three game weeks you should have a very high speed writing, 9 or 10 novels as best sellers, and 100,000 Simoleons.

Protection From Death

Go to Pleasant Rest Graveyard, and near the gate, there is a strange bush called a “Death Flower Bush” – Harvest the flower from it. If you keep this flower in your sim’s inventory, when you die the grim reaper will trade it for a second chance at life. This flower will not reappear, but there are Unknown Special Seeds (requires level 7 Gardening to plant) dotted about near the graveyard (and a few other places) which may grow another Death Flower (and sometimes more if your Sim has the Green Thumb trait to revive the plant.)

New clothes

To get new clothes, you first have to buy a dresser from “Buy Options”. Once there, click “Plan Outfit.” You can put a total of three different clothes for each type (formal, every day, athletic, etc.).

Making Friends

Buy a guitar. Play it to learn how to play guitar. Keep playing until you reach 5/10 level, which gives you the ability to “Play For Tips”. When you have that ability, go to the park with the guitar in your inventory. When you are in the park, click the guitar in your inventory, and select “Play For Tips.” People watching you will become your friends if you keep playing. The higher your guitar skill, the faster they will become friends with you.

Turn off Aging

In the options menu you can choose the gameplay settings. When you uncheck the box before “Aging” the sims won’t become older anymore. You can also slow aging down in this menu by setting the lifetime bar. It’s changeable from 25 days too 960 days.

    OMG. You can’t go on the isms 3 without a serial code. I am trying to get my sim pregnant with the grim reaper, but he is never there at night (like after he has killed somebody). So how do I get him not to go… And I don’t want to kill my sims every night by the way.

  11. AMoore says:

    Email me with an awnser….Once I had the Grim Reaper, made him apart of the family. I killed someone else I had in the family, and could not bring the sim back to life. (Game acts as if there is only one Grim Reaper) I even made sure that he had the unlucky trait. It worked in the past. I had no choice but to delete them. Then when I wanted to move…The game would not let me…it stated that I could not move because a sim was dying. Although with all my sims, no one was dying. What to do next to be able to move from that location with Grim Reaper and kids? I just think the advice is do not kill anyone after you have Grim Reaper apart of the family…

  12. jhood says:

  13. katelyn says:
