Rating 1

Build a basement

On a new lot, put down staircases to lower the terrain. Go to the bottom of the first one and miss out one tile and put down another staircase. Do this once more and you should have three staircases. Get rid of the staircases and use the "Level Terrain" tool to level the terrain from the lowest tile. Set it as big or small as desired. Using the "Straight Line Wall" tool, build walls around this hole so are walls pressed up against hills. Be sure to build the room above so that it covers the entire basement. Cover around the house with the "Foundation" tool, assuring that all the slopes are covered up. Place one tile in the top floor, then create a staircase leading down to the basement. Make two or more foundation blocks at the front of the house, and finally place a staircase leading up them.

Rating 1

Infinite Simoleons hint

To quickly earn over 4,000 Simoleons, purchase a desk and a chair for the desk and place it anywhere in your household. After calling the repairman a couple times he will bring a XS 4258p Laptop and place it on the desk. He will forget it is there when he leaves, as long as there is no other items on the desk when he arrives. Repeat this process to earn you between 2,400 and over 4,000 Simoleons, depending on how soon you sell it.

Rating 0

Easy money

To easily earn money, have your sim write novels on the computer. Fiction novels take the least amount of time, but will not bring you the most Simoleons. Romance novels will earn you the most Simoleons. After maxing out the "Writing" skill, you can make as much as 40,000 Simoleons every week.
