Enable the "Cheat gnome" code. Pause time, then quickly press R2, R3, L3, L2, R1, L1. A Sim voice will say something to confirm correct code entry. Note: This code can be entered any time after your Sim wakes up at Mom's House after the initial "Dream Sequence".

Boosting a low budget
At Mom's house, Mimi's place, or Dudley's trailer, buy things until your budget drops below $100. Wait about an hour. When the phone rings, answer it. You will get free money. Repeat this as necessary.

Raise motives
To help raise motives in later levels, move back to Mom's house. The Artificial Love will make raising motives easier.

Raising skills
While living with Mom, do not run out and get a job after you have completed the first few goals. Instead, stay around awhile and use that time to build skills. Mom will nag you, but just select "Okay" and keep doing everything else. Make sure to keep yourself happy and entertain/talk/joke with Mom to keep your relationship up to par. When you have your skills where you want them, move out. This will make things much easier. You will then be able to concentrate on your job and relationships, rather than skill building.

Notice that when you are at your Mom's house at the beginning, your Sim's energy and social do not go down, and will remain at the halfway point. Using this, you can raise your skills faster. First, have breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Then, use the toilet, take a bath, watch television for fun and comfort, then finally work on whatever skill you want. After repeating this routine before having breakfast, lunch, or dinner, clean up the plates. Do not call a maid or anything else, as it is a waste of money. For extra money, do creative skills on your paint set and sell your paintings when done. This will give you a lot of money when you are done with your skills. Do all goals except getting a job. Do not sleep or talk to your mom while doing this. When done with Cooking, Mechanical, Creative, and Charisma, buy a chess table for Logic. When you are done with those skills, sell the chess set (whole refund). Then, buy the weight lifting machine for the Body. When done with all skills, get a job and move out.

Unlock social options
To unlock most social options, become friends with the Sims. For example, when you be friends with Randy you will unlock "French Kiss" and with Paisly you could unlock "Spank Booty". Each Sim has there own social option to unlock when you become their family friend.

Jock career
To successfully complete the Jock career, you need to have all Body points, 4 Cooking points, and 5 Charisma points. You will also need six friends. A quick way to complete this is go to Mom's house and buy something to work your body (for example, a treadmill, pool, etc.);a bookshelf or something similar to the gourmet cooking stove; and something for your charisma (for example, a microphone or a mirror). Do that, then build your skills and move to the different houses so you can complete a goal and unlock something. You will eventually get to Malcolm's mansion.

Skipping work
In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by moving back into Mom's house. While you live with Mom, the bus will not arrive, and you do not have to work. This is useful if things are not going so well and you need some time to "restore" your Sim.

In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by changing jobs before the bus arrives. Later, you can just change back to your old job. This is useful if you are about to get fired. Note: You will only get fired if you skip work two or three times in a row.

Never work
In Bustin' Out mode, the people who you live with (who you can control) cannot get fired. If you want them to stay home, just let them. This can be very useful if you need them to clean up, or need them to do some other things.

Get a bigger room:
When at Dudley's trailer, go to the master bedroom. Then, sell the door that leads to the smaller room so that there is just a wall. Next, make a door at the top right corner so that there is a place you could walk into the smaller room. Then, decorate both rooms' wallpaper and carpet to be the same and you will have a bigger room.

Raising a baby
When you have a baby, do not play with it ever, as it does nothing. If you feed it then sing, it will stop crying for a couple of hours.

Become a Momma’s Boy (or Girl)
At the beginning of the game, don't get a job. Stay at Mom’s House building up skills and making friends. Since several motives don’t decay at Mom’s (most notably energy, so you won’t have to sleep) and you don’t have to go to work, you’ll be able to build up skills very quickly.

Take Time Off for Personal Development
If you haven’t fulfilled the necessary requirements for a promotion, move back into Mom’s House. Instead of spending an unproductive day at work, you’ll be able to build up your skills and make friends. When you’re ready, move back into the appropriate lot and nab that promotion.

No work
Description: when you are busy doing something you can only pass a bit of time so you cant go to school or work so were the buss usually stops stand there you will be classed as you have gone to work or school and will not get paid but you will not be fired as long as you stay there 4 1 minute on the Sims its aka 1 hour.

Stop The Protesters
When At The Octogon Visit Club Rubb. Attack Mona Or Bing. This will unlock The Parrot. Submitted by Cory 6-18-05

Call a Rich Friend
Create two Sims on two memory cards. Load one, sell everything at Mom’s House, and save. Load the other and allow the Sim who sold everything to join as the second player. Make the rich Sim empty his or her steamer trunk of money. This should net you about 50,000 Simoleans. Repeat at will.

Rely on Charity
Spend all of your money. When you do, you should start receiving money via telephone calls. As long as you keep draining your account back to zero by buying more stuff, the calls will keep coming. When you’re done, sell everything you bought.

Become an Alcoholic
Drinks made with the drink bar refill energy, fun, and food. If you turn your roomies into drink mixing extrodinaires you’ll never have to sleep, eat, or worry about fun.

Fishin' For Profit book
To get the Fishin' For Profit book go to Nikki Nack's store (open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). After you buy it, find O'Phil Mclean. Give it to him and he will give you a job. Note: You must get the goals from him first. To do this, talk to Salty. Later in the game, you will be offered by Nikki Nack to buy the Waterfront Villa for 3,000 Simoleons.

Throw an art opening
When you move to Studio 8, one of the goals is to throw an art opening. In order for the art opening to be successful, you have to purchase a Sculpting Block and sculpt it first. Then, have the party and it will be successful. However, before you can purchase the Sculpting Block, you must complete the goal that will give you access to it.

Dead plants
When a plant is dead, do not throw it away. You can sell the dead plant for as much as a new plant costs.

Easy money
When you go to a house and do not have much money, trade in all the wallpaper and buy the cheap version. You can get a good amount of money. You can do the same thing with the tile.
When you move into a house, sell all the wallpaper and tiles. Then, change the tiles to grass and the wallpaper to nothing.
Instead of working, you can get a workbench from the "Building Skills" section in buy mode. When your Mechanical skill is at its best, you will get 100 Simoleons for each gnome you make. It only takes about five seconds to make each gnome, and you can make about thirteen gnomes at once. Note: Your Sim will only make gnomes when in a good mood.
To get lots of money, enter buy mode and sell the paintings. Some of them are worth a couple thousand Simoleons

Kill and revive your roommate:
Play Bustin' Out mode and choose the roommate that you want to kill and revive. Make sure that they have very little Cooking points. Press R2 to change into the person that you want to kill. Note: This cannot be Mimi, Dudley, or Mom because you cannot change into them. When you are that person, make them cook food. When they are cooking, a fire may start. The Sim will catch on fire if they are too close to the flames. If they do not, change into them again and have them move very close to the flames. When the Sim catches on fire, they will begin to burn then will fall to the floor curled up in a ball. The Grim Reaper will appear and revive the dying Sim without you pleading to him.

Ghost maid:
First, get the Gene Genie Incubator. When you make a Mutant Plant, water and feed it. After it grows to be as big as possible, put it anywhere in the house. Do not feed or water it for a few days. Eventually the maid will get eaten if she stands in front of it. Note: You must have a maid for this to work. A message will appear stating that the maid will rest in peace. After that, call up the maid agency. You will be asked if you would like to hire a maid for 10 Simoleons a day. Answer "Yes". The ghost maid is dark blue and her clothes are black. Before she appears, about 7:00, strange music will play. Note: Check to make sure it is not a stereo or television. In the early morning in Simoleon time, the ghost maid comes back (about every three days) and starts making wailing noises. You see smoke around her feet when she walks around; and she disappears and reappears at some points. You will also see her walking through walls. She also cleans when she goes to the house she was killed in.

Swim or exercise with clothes on or off:
Unlock the Pixel Booty song and place a Synthesizer in the same room as the pool or exercise machine. Begin playing Pixel Booty and all the Sims in the room will undress. Then, command the Sim you want to swim or exercise with the clothes on to begin swimming or exercising. Once the Sim is performing the given action, command the Sim playing Pixel Booty to stop (Select, X). All Sims will change their clothes to normal, including the ones in the pool or exercise machine. To make the Sims swim or exercise naked, command them to perform the action before playing Pixel Booty. Note: This glitch works with any command that involves clothes changing, including bathing, sleeping, vibrating, and getting in the hot tub.

Seeing double:
Go to free play mode and have one family invite over someone from another family of Sims. Save the game when they get there and quit. Then, go back into free play mode. Go to the family that was invited to the first family. Everyone should be there, unless they are at work or school. Invite the first family over. Save and quit the game when they are there. Exit and return to the first family. The second family will be visiting, and the first family will be there and also in the second family's house.

Floating dishes:
Have your Sim pick up a lot of dishes. When he takes them to the sink, they will float behind him.

Floating Sims:
In Free or Bustin' Out mode, have at least a wife and a roommate. Buy a bed and place it anywhere in your room. Put two Sims in the bed. The relationship between them must be at 90% in order to do this trick. Once the Sims are in bed press Start and go to buy mode. Move the pointer and select the bed. Move the bed and your Sims will be sleeping in mid-air.

Making friends
Invite a friend over, then get into a hot tub, preferably the Love Tub. Then, ask a friend to join you. When he or she gets in, place items around the Love Tub. The Sims will not be able to leave, and will keep talking to each other.

Having a baby
Your Sims must be married and the Love Bed must be unlocked. Pick your female Sim and tell her to "Sleep". Then, bring the male Sim and tell him to "Play In Bed". After you finish, kiss her and you will be asked if you would like to have a baby. Note: Your relationship must be 100%.

Recommended careers
To complete the game much faster and easier, start it with the Mad Scientist career. Work on your Mechanical and some Body skills, then after completing that career, get a new job in the Counter Culture career. Work on your Cooking and Charisma skills. While doing these careers, you can stock up on the "important" skills. For example, you must work on your Mechanical and some body Skills in the Mad Scientist career so you can get full bars for those, full bars of Cooking for the Counter Culture career, and Charisma for both.

Live alone
Use the following trick if you want to take the day off and control another Sim, and do not want to mess with it. When your roommates go to work, leave and return after the time they come back from work. You will be able to live alone. Alternately, you can build a small room in the back yard, with a door. Go into it, call the other person over, and leave once they get there. Then, go to build mode and delete the door.

Get rid of annoying Mom
At the beginning of Busting' Out mode, you will start out living with Mom. She will keep talking and say things like "What did I do to deserve this?" or "When are you going to find a job?" She will keep saying things and will not allow you to play without interruptions. To avoid this, Enable the "All socials unlocked" code, then take your Mom to the back of her house. Hypnotize her, walk away, then put a wall around her. That will take care of her. However, when you move out she will wake up. You must take her somewhere quiet so that if you make noise with a radio or television she will not wake up.

Rocket Gnomes
To be able to make Rocket Gnomes, you must have an Inventor's Workbench and Mech skills at 8 or higher.

Aromaster
Use the following trick to never have to fix a broken Aromaster. Save the game before you turn it on. If it breaks, quit the game without saving and resume from your saved game. Instead of turning it on again, sell it then buy it again.

In order to get the Goth's fern back, you must be living in the Goth's house. Then, visit Dudley's house. When you go to the very back of his house you will see and old broken down car, and a fern that is close to it. Select the fern and choose the "Steal Fern" option. A window will appear, and Dudley will tell you that he was just borrowing the fern. Go back to the Goth's house and a window will appear, with Bella saying something about how it figures that it was Dudley who took the fern.

Avoid cooking
You do not have to spend time cooking and not get anything else done. Its better not to waste your time and waste your roommates. Everybody that you live with should be a better cook, no matter who much you raise the stat. Just let them get hungry and they will cook for you and any other person there.

Easy car
When you are at Casa Calenta, Club Rub, or any of the places that have the goal "Get Married", when creating the Sim you will marry, have him or her bring a child along. By doing this, when you get to Malcolm's Mansion you will unlock a car without working for it.

Easy game
At the beginning of the game, fill all your skills at Mom's house to 100%, then get a job (preferably one that makes a lot of money) and move - out. When you arrive enable the "Cheat gnome" code. Every time your Sim gets a unhappy, use enable the "Fill all motives". You now have all the time needed to make friends and complete goals.

Quickly kill Sims
Purchase a high diving board in free play mode. You do not have to place it over the pool. Position it over the patio. The Sims will jump onto the tile and smack their face into the ground. If you purchase a glass coffee table, you can place it under the diving board. When the Sim jumps from the diving board, they will do a face plant into the glass table and immediately die. The Grim Reaper will not even appear; they will just turn into a tombstone.

Phone calls
If you get a phone call saying "Think before you open the door" or "They are coming soon. Be warned", it could mean a robber will arrive soon or nothing at all. If you get a phone call saying " Friendships are like plants", talk to the Sim you are close to 50% liking and raise it to 100% liking. That Sim will be your friend for a longer time. Do this to all of your friends so you will not have to worry about friends in the near future.

Help with the "outsider art" goal
When you are living at Casa Caliente, one of the goals is to visit Studio 8 and help with the "outsider art". To complete this goal, visit Studio 8 and paint a picture on the easel. You now completed the goal.
