The Sims 2 Cheats For PC

  1. Custom Painting

    To decorate your house with custom artwork, first your sim must have a creativity level of 5 and be able to paint a still life.

    Have your sim paint and a frame will appear that you can center on whatever you want to paint. If you want to paint a picture of something outside the Sims 2 game, just press C anywhere at this time. This will pause the game.

    Use Alt + Tab to exit the game, then open a picture program such as Paint and open the snapshot you just took, it will usually be in the folder: C:\My Documents\EA\Sims2\Storytelling\Snapshot.bmp

    Then, you also have to open the picture you want to have in your game. If your picture is too large resize it so it will fit in the original snapshot from the game.

    Copy your custom picture on to your snapshot from the game, then save the picture. Use Alt + Tab to get back to your game and your sim will start painting your own custom picture.

    Using this trick you can put pictures of your friends or family, web pictures, or anything else in your Sims 2 game.

  2. Listen To Mp3's On Sim Radio

    First get whatever Mp3's you want to put on the game, then open up MyDocuments/EAGames/TheSims2/Music/(whatever RadioStation you want your song on). Then, Drag your MP3 into the folder. Now, start Sims 2 then go to options menu, then music settings, then the Radio Station, then pick witch songs you want the radio to play. You can now listen to your favorite songs in your Sims game.

  3. Disgusting Faces

    There is a glitch in character creation mode where you can make absolutely disgusting faces. The trick is that if you go to the face designing area and you select a face part such as the eyes and max out all the sliders one way or the other, then go to a different face part and select one of the PREDESIGNED parts, and then come back to the eyes, the sliders will have reset in the middle, but the eyes will still look the same. This works for all of the face adjusting tabs. Exploiting this, you can make eyes the size of dinner plates, cheekbones 4 feet long, and a HUMUNGOUS nose, to name a few.

  4. Use your own videos for the TV

    It's possible to watch your own videos on the Sim-TV. You must put the video you want into My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Movies\Broadcast (the TV sender you want). If you then turn on the TV in the game you can watch it! The video must be .avi-clips and the clips shouldn't be larger then 128x128 pixel also it shouldn't have more then 15 frames per second.

  5. Listen to music included with game

    First, open your The Sims 2/TSData/Res/Sound directory. The names of radio stations, plus a few more including Build mode and Neighborhood music should be here in *.package files. Copy and paste the file corresponding to whatever you want to listen to into another folder. Rename it from [File].package to [File].mp3. You can now listen to the sound/songs included in the file.

  6. Debug Mode

    Open the cheat menu by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C, then entering the following:
    boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true

    While in Create-a-Sim, press Shift + N before creating your first sim to enable skintones, clothes, and hairstles that would normally be used only by NPCs. Press Shift + M to disable it.

    While in Live mode, Shift + Click on a sim to bring up the debug menu.

  7. free bookcase skills

    Buy a bookcase, then have your sim start to study. Interrupt the action so that the book it placed on the ground, then simply sell the bookcase. The book can then do everything the bookcase could have done for free.

  8. For Poor Families

    The trick is that no matter how many times you use an object, if you sell it in the same day, you can get all your money back. So if your Sim is poor and needs body points or something, buy a body machine and keep selling it back to refund all your money.

    Contributed by: sftblchic002 

  9. Saving Pizza

    Have a sim call for pizza. When the pizza delivery guy comes DON'T accept the pizza! The pizza delivery guy will eventually leave the pizza on the front porch, and the pizza will never get stale. You can stack as many pizzas as you want, so if your sims get hungry, just tell them to get a pizza from the front porch.

This does not actually fulfill the prerequisite for the aspiration: for example, if the aspiration is "have a baby", ctrl + click won't actually allow your sim to have the baby.

  1. Play as the NPC's your teen Sims bring home from school

    Since those NPC's that they bring home are teens, you'll never be able to have them move in with you, but if you go to the Neighborhood screen and go to where the Sim bin is, you'll see an option that says 'Send Sims to college' under that menu is all of the teen Sim NPC's. Send them to college and play them there until they Graduate or once at college just have them drop out to send them back to the Neighborhood and in the Sim bin where you can have them move into a lot and play them there.

  2. Have a maximum of 255 floors!

    Open up the cheat box ( Ctrl, Shift and C) the type in sethighestallowedlevel 255.
    This will make it so you can build a maximum of 255 floors.
    NOTE: Some peoples games have crashed because they have built to many floors then their computer can handle. So beware.

  3. Will Wright's Guest Appearence

    When you go to the Create-A-Sim menu there is a room with a mirror and window, for designing your sim. In the left hand corner (beside the mirror) there is a mysterious potrait. This is Will Wright as a sim!

  4. The Mysterious Friend

    Whenever, you use your portable gaming system, after finishing playing it, a relationship point gain will appear over your head. After playing with the game many times, your Sim will even develop a crush on it. The strange part is though, no new Sims are added to your friends list.

  5. Change TV Volume

    The cheat command floatProp tvVolume X will change the volume of the TV in The Sims 2 University.

    The default value for X is 0.5. Lowering this to 0.0 mutes the TV. Subsequently, raising it to 1.0 raises the volume.

  6. Easy aspiration

    This works best in a dorm where there are a lot of students.Wait until your sim gets the "do assignment" want.Wait for a NPC to start doing theirs,and when they are nearly finished,issue a social command to the NPC.He/she will leave the work on the desk.click on it and finish it,but you get the points even tough it isn't your work!

  7. Easy Free Items in Dorms

    In order for this trick to work, you'll either have to have a computer that has no problem loading the TS2U lots, or patience. Either one will work. ;)

    First of all, create a large household - eight, if the loading times won't be too bad. This is to insure that you have a family with the maximum amount of starting money possible. Next, move them into whichever dorm you want to have a lot of objects/wallpapers that don't come with the dorm. Go into buy mode and buy whatever you wish with that household's spending money. Now move them out. If you happen to enter the lot after you've moved them out, you'll notice that the objects and/or aspiration rewards they have purchased do NOT go with them (the objects/rewards are still there). You can do this as many times as you want to get as many free objects/changes in the dorms as you want! Have fun!
