We at Sims 3 Guide want to provide you with a full list of cheats soon, but until we have a full overview over the cheats availible, you can get some of the cheats available here:
- To get 50 000 § you type “motherlode”, as you can see this is the same cheat as in Sims 2
- To get 1000 § you type “kaching”
- To remove any negative effects from a sim, use “resetsim Name Surname”. This will give you a neutral sim, like it is when you start the game
- To give your sims a specific amount of money, use “familyfunds <Family name> <Amount>” where Family name is the name of the family and amount is how much cash you want to give them.
That’s it for now, we will come back with more Sims 3 cheats later!
I’m sure you will come across the problem of having a sim you later want to change the name of, or maybe you just called the baby girl of the family Michael. In Sims 2 it was very hard to change the name of your sims, but this has gotten a lot easier in Sims 3.
To change the name of your Sims 3 sims, you just have to visit the City Hall. If you need to change the name of one of your small sims, that can’t go to the City Hall, you can send one of the older sims. Just find the City Hall on the map, and choose “Change Name”, and you get an option of which sim you want to change name of.
You can get a lot of different Sims 3 wallpapers if you head over to the sims 3 site.
Not surprisingly, Sims 3 are rocking the reviews. The metacritic score for Sims 3 is up to 87, of 100, which means it gets close to top score in most reviews. PC Gamers says it’s the best sims-game so far, which says a lot when we think about how successful those games have been. Below is some of the reviews from the biggest gaming-sites.
- Gamespot - 9.0 - “The latest Sims game is also the greatest”
- IGN - 8.9 - “It delivers a solid foundation for what should be many more years of Sims sales dominance.”
- 1UP - B+ - “If EA gets the bugs ironed out with a patch, The Sims 3 will make a lot of converts to an already popular series.”
- Gamespy - 4.5 - “The Sims 3 team’s given us a plenty of reasons to keep coming back, the inevitable cavalcade of expansion packs notwithstanding.”
If you have tried Sims 3 enough now to have made your dreams come true in the game, this is the contest for you. The team behind Sims 3 have announced a contest where you make a video about your sim’s dream life, and submit it to Youtube. The contest runs to June. 22, so you still have some weeks to make that perfect video. Read about the contest here.
There is a new developer blog entry on the Sims 3 site, and we are here to explain it to you. You can read the full post here, which is written by an associate producer of Sims 3.
A new feature of Sims 3 is Wishes. This is a bit like what you find in Sims 2, but instead when your sims have wishes, you choose to throw them away or promise the sim that you will help them reach their wishes. Accomlishing the wishes gives your sim lifetime happyness points, that you can use to buy achievement traits. There are more than twenty of these achievement traits, so surely some of those will be great for your sim.
Ever wanted your sims to live in an apartment in the city instead of having their own house out in the countryside? Well, with the new apartment life expansions for Sims 2 you now have the chance to let do that.
The new expansion will allow you to rent an apartment instead of having to move into a house alone. This means it will be cheaper in the beginning for your sim, but each will there will be rent to pay. There are a lot of finished apartments available, from trailer parks to classy, modern apartments. Some come with some furniture for your sims, while you are totally free to change these and repaint the whole apartment.
You will now have neighbours that might play high music during the night, or maybe you are the party lion keeping your neighbours up. To help pay the rent you can also get a room mate.

Electronic Arts have finally said when we will see Sims 3 in the stores, and the release date is set to February 20, 2009. It will be available at this date worldwide, and also for digital download.
They also announced The Sims 3 Collector’s Edition, that will be released the same day. This will, in addition to the game itself, give you Sims 3 Merchandise and an additional ingame Sports Car. If you preorder the Collector’s Edition, you will also get a vintage sports car (in-game) and a poster (out of game I hope) for Sims 3. You will also get a Sims 3 USB Drive.
Sims 3 will introduce a while new neighbourhood system. In Sims 2 you are pretty much forced to stay at home or visit one of the community lots outside of the neighbourhood. However, in Sims 3 you will be able to walk over to the neighbour and take a cup of coffee. You can jog around and look around, and see and meet a lot of new Sims.
This is a large change from the previous game, and will enable you to co-play with other Sims-families in a completely new way. If you are playing more families yourself, or your real-life friends and family make sims-families in you neighbourhood, you can experience their home and sims in a new way, forming relationships and having fun.
