Right.. here we go. Here is the full list of the console cheats for The Sims, including a whole load of fairly pointless ones. At the bottom there are a few notes of cheats that have changed or have been removed with the patch or one of the expansion packs. But first.. how to use them.

While playing a game, press Ctrl, Shift and C (all at the same time) to display the console box in the upper left corner. Once you've done that, you can enter any of these codes to achieve the effect noted after them. Please note that you'll have to call up the box again if you want to use another cheat.

You can also enter '!' (the exclamation mark) at the prompt to repeat the last cheat entered, and use a ';' (semi-colon) between cheats to do more than one at a time. Particularly useful with the money cheat, that. Here's the list then.

- In the original game without a patch, the code to get §1000 is klapaucius, not rosebud
- These cheats were taken out in Hot Date:
  - House
  - edit_grass
  - water_tool
  - save
I'd just like to thank the sites that helped me complete this list of codes, including Gamespot US and Crazy 4 Sims. And remember - these ones should work!
