  • Job Circle

    In this game you complete a job type like Mad Scientist then start a new one like Fashion Victim. Its important you make the next job type as similar skills as possible. Here are some.

    Paramilitary=Jock
    Counter Cultare=fashion victim
    Fashion Victim=Gangster

    The match can be mixed up visa versa
    The two careers I left out have special uses.

    Mad Scientist can be used to start off your game and the movie star can be used last or second to last because it needs skills that you can get from other jobs

  • Sleep Without Wasting Time

    Are you tired of not getting enough sleep and you got to go to work? Yeah, it happens to me. But now I found a way to stop that. like if you have to go to work in an hour and you need to sleep, simply press the left trigger and then it will pause time, but if you check your mood (up direction on D-pad) Then you will see the sleep meter going slowly up.

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

  • Filling Up Your Skills At Moms

    Ok, at the start of the game you end up at your moms house. The cheat that i discovered is that as long as you keep the gamecube on your energy, hygeine, comfort and social never drop a certain amount. So what you do is you stay at your moms place slowly filling up each skill (remember not to turn the system off) this may take quiet a long time but in the end it pays off because all you need to care about is building up your relationships. This cheat may not work for you but it did for me the two times i started a new game.

  • How to Get Married

    To get married your must fall in love with someone by first talking to make them a family friend, and then by dancing with them (this works the best). THIS PERSON MUST BE FROM FREE STREET 1, 2, OR 3! IF THEY AREN'T FROM FREE STREET 1, 2, OR 3, THIS WILL NOT WORK! Once you are in love with them at 100, and vice versa, invite them over the phone. You will have to serve breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They will eat and then you can click on them. One of the social options will be to propose. This option will probably not be at the top. If they accept, you will have a wedding. Keep in mind that the wedding cost 1,000 Simoleons. Also, if they accept, they will go with you to wherever you move to. Have a happy marriage!

  • Heidi Shadows

    For two hours a week you can purchase cheats from Heidi Shadows, The Ninja. You must be in the right place at the right time, and that's
    not easy. Heidi shows himself at the following times and places:

    Imperial Estates, Mondays 11:00pm-midnight

    Park Maze, Fridays 3:00am-4:00am

    To find out what day of the
    week it is:

    1)Press "Select" and save your game.
    2)Press "Select" and choose "Save Game" from the menu (but don't save again).
    3)Look at the game file; it states the time and day of the last save.
    Unfortunately, the day is a number, not a day of the week.

    It's confusing. The game starts on Monday, so that's day 1.

    Mondays are 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 36, 43, 50, 57, 64, 71, 78, 85, 92, 99, 106, 113, 120, 127, 134, 141, 148, 155, 162, 169, 176, etc.

    Fridays are 5, 12, 19, 26, 33, 40, 47, 54, 61, 68, 75, 82, 89, 96, 103, 110, 117, 124, 131, 138, 145, 152, 159, 166, 173, etc.

    You can buy cheats from Heidi Shadows like any other shop, she sells:

    Rosebud: adds $5,000 cost $100
    Slip of Paper: contains a password, "Bucket", that might come in handy in, say, a sequel of some kind
    Silver Tongue Berry - adds 1 charisma skill point cost $500
    Gourmet Berry - adds 1 cooking skill point cost $500
    Clock Berry - adds 1 mechanical point cost $500

  • 2,000 Simoleons

    When you go to Giuseppi Mezzoalto and you finish all of the goals required to go under the city, it will obviously say "Mission Complete!" on the screen. Then, go down through one of the potholes by walking over one and pressing "A" and the game will center on a button on one of the platforms that you can walk on. Go over to the button and walk over it. Press "A" when you are over it. It will transport you to an area where you there are two blue couches. Go over to the couches and add them to your pocket. Then go down and you will find another transporter. Do the same thing over this transporter. It will send you back to where you were. Then go to one of the ladders on the wall and press "A" again. You will come out of the pothole. Now make your way to the Country Cafe and sell the couches to the store. You will get 1,000 Simoleons for them each, which totals up to 2,000 Simoleons.
