Sims: Livin' Large PC Cheats

Rating 5

Faster work promotions

Study every skill and get them as high as they will go, then start to work in any desired field. No matter what field you work in, you will receive one promotion per day. Your Sim's happiness level and friends count affect it in the later stages. This works well when you are using the money cheats. However, it is possible to do this without cheating by painting pictures and selling them; and creating potions and drinking them (as this will increase all your happiness levels, except sleepiness and hunger, saving you time). Every once in awhile, use a day or two to call a friend and talk to them all day. This will help you get family friends faster.

Money from gnomes

If you do not want to go to work but still want to make decentmoney, buy a woodworker and make gnomes. When you get your mechanic skill up to 10, the gnomes will sell for about 200 Simoleans. If you make 10, you will make about 2000 simoleans a day. It takes a very short time to make each one.

Kill Sim quickly

-Create a small house, put chess boards everywhere inside, but leave a space and one box. Place a fireworks shooter in the box. Make a door and tell the Sim to go in the room. Delete the door and tell the Sim to light a firework. Light another and repeat until the Sim is dead.

-To kill a Sim quickly in a fire, first make a 10x12 house. Count how many Sims you want to kill and add one to that number. Fill up the house with exercise machines and an amount of boxes open in a line equal to your number. Put a fireworks launcher in the end box of the line of boxes. Enable the move_objects on code and pick up the Sims you wanted to kill. Place them in different empty boxes in the house. Tell any one of the Sims to light the fireworks. If done correctly, once launched the entire house will catch on fire at the same time. Note: The game may freeze for a couple seconds. Also, you may run out of money while you are doing this trick.

-Place an unwanted Sim in a room, then get rid of the door and buy some fireworks. Light them off. They will go up, come down, light on fire, and kill the Sim.

Cockroaches/Virtual Reality set

Enable the move_objects on code, do not clear your house, and wait for cockroaches to appear.

Keep Sim alive

-Whenever a Sim dies, you can keep them alive by using the move_objects on code to delete the Grim Reaper. Save and exit the game, then evict your family. You will have to refurnish your house, but at least your Sim will still be alive.

-If your Sim is dying, enter build or buy mode, enable the move_objects on code, and delete the Grim Reaper. Then, delete the dead Sim. When you return to live mode, click on that person's picture and they will reappear with their last saved stats. Note: The "death" music will still play.

-After your Sim has burned to death, the Grim Reaper will appear. Get the closest person to plead with him. They will play Rock, Paper, Scissors, Shoot. If you win, the dead person becomes a zombie. Enable the move_objects on code, then go into the build or buy mode and click on the zombie. Delete him or her, then return to live mode and click on the picture of the Sim that was a zombie. After that, click in the house and they will be revived. Note: This will only work if person has burned to death.

-Use pillars on the first floor to create the shape of the house. Fill in every space inside the shape, except a spot for a staircase. On the second floor, build the house. After that, enable the move_objects on code, go to the first floor, and delete the pillars. You should now have a staircase going up to a house that is floating.

Rating 2

Hidden object

-Enable the move_objects on code, then build a house with no furniture. Go to the buy or build mode and click around the house. You will find a "*comeandsee". Note: You can also put things in the house, then start, then put under build or buy mode and it will be under or beside spots, but mainly the 500 Simolians TV.

-The "*comeandsee" object is a "hidden" programmed object, that has neighbors come to your house. It shows up often when you purchase party balloons or the genie grants a wish about "desert winds".

Rating 2

Quick career points

-Choose a category to build up. For example, if "Body" is to be increased and you do not have a "Home Gym System" in your house, purchase one. Note: If you already have some career points for your Sim(s), save the game first. After placing your Home Gym where you have enough room, have your Sim do a work out. After he gets on, set the speed to "Ultra", or the speed between that and normal. Watch their needs meters so they do not get too low. You will see their Body points fill up. Enable move_objects on code, save the current and new body points you have, then switch to buy mode or build mode. Move the white hand over your character, click on him, and delete your character. Return to live mode and quickly click on that Sim's picture. This will allow you a promotion almost everyday. Repeat the above process to fill up your career points. The more career points you have, the harder it is to get the last few on each bar.

-Make sure your Sims do not have a job. To get perfect skills for your Sim and their jobs, first make a family and a house with all the necessary items needed to give the Sims their skill points - home gym, chess board, bookshelf, guitar or piano, and mirror. When you finish the house, enter buy mod and enable the move_objects on code. Have your Sim to walk in the house, and then click on build mode. Click the wall tool and take out any doors that go outside (so no visitors can interrupt you). Tell your Sim to work on something, such as body skills. After they start, put the game on Ultra Speed until they stop, then quickly turn the speed down to the speed above pause. Click on the "..." button on the bottom of the control panel. Save the game by clicking the disc. When it is done saving, go to buy mode and delete your Sim. Return to live mode and immediately click on the face of the Sim in the control panel. His comfort, hunger, and everything will be full so you can keep working on your skills. After completing them all, put a door back on your house so you can make lots of friends. Note: Make sure you still do not have a job. After you make about 12 or 13 friends, get a job. You should get promoted almost everyday if you keep all of your friends. For example, get to the top of the Science career track to become a mad scientist and get your own private limo. Note: If you have more than one Sim in your house, you should delete all but the one Sim you want to work on until he/she is done.

Rating 2

Zombie Sim

Kill your Sim, and before the Grim Reaper takes him or her away, get your husband or wife to plead with him. He will say " I'm generous today, so I will spare your Sim", then bring him or her back to life. That Sim will now be green but will live a normal life. Note: If you do not want them to be a zombie, enable the move_objects on code and delete him or her. After that, click on their head and they will return without turning green.

Have a baby

-When both parents are not busy, have the father sit and watch television until he is very relaxed. Then, tell the mother to give him a back rub. Keep doing this until the father enjoys the back rub. Note: You may get denied at first, but keep trying. After successfully given him a backrub, kiss him. He should fall in love; if not, keep doing this until he does. Then, have them take a Jacuzzi together. Have them sleep together that night. If nothing happens, have them sleep together the next night also. Eventually they will have a baby. You can also do this the other way around, with the father starting it.

-Purchase a Vibratomatic love bed and instruct your Sims to "Play In Bed". If they play in bed every day for several days in a row, they will eventually have an accidental child, and no "Would you like to have a baby?" dialogue box will appear. Note: This only works for opposite-sex couples.

Fixing missing mailbox and trash can glitch

Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended.

Never pay police fines

The police will fine you for various things such as partying late at night and using the chemistry set too often. However, if you do not have enough money to pay the fine, nothing will happen. To avoid fines, send one of your Sims to greet the police officer, then quickly enter buy mode and buy something that takes your total cash to just below enough to pay the fine. The police officer will announce that you are being fined, then leave without collecting it (since you cannot afford it). After that, sell the item you bought. It should still sell for full price, since you just bought it a moment ago, to keep all your money.
