    Make Your Own Roof Pattern

    To create a roof pattern go into paint. Create a box that is 32 pixels (little squares that each picture is composed of) by 32 pixels. Then be creative and make a crude pattern that you would like to put on the roofs of your sims houses. Save the document as c (and then a number) in the roof folder in The Sims. To get here go to My computer on your desk top, then your main drive; in windows Millennium Edition for example it is the (C:) drive. go to the folder program files , then to the folder maxis then to the sims, then to gamedata and finally to roofs. The only thing is that The Sims setup will only load up to 16 roof patterns so choose carefully when the new sims expansions are loaded into your computer remove all of your own roof tiles and put back only the amount that will fit (there should only be 16 paint documents in your folder)

    Slow Down Burglars

    If you need to spare time to call the police or to wait for them to arrive during a burglar strike, hold your cursor over the criminal and follow him with it. This makes him walk in slow motion. That should slow him down enough for the police to nab him!!!

    If your sim has died, to bring him/her back to life is, need another sim. once they die, the grim reaper comes and makes their remains ashes. to prevent that, have your second sim to plead to the grim reaper. you will then play rock paper scissors with him. if u win, the dead sim will become a zombie. if you lose, the body will become ashes. sometimes the grim reaper will say that he is feelink generous and will bring the sim to life even if you lose. the grim reaper will not always raise the dead sim.

    Tax Evasion

    When the mail arrives, have your Sim receive it. Then tell him to 'Pay Bills', and when he's on his way to the mailbox with the bills in his hands, pause the game. Spend money in the buy mode until you don't have enough to pay the bills. Than unpause the game, and watch how the Sim puts the bills in the mailbox, and you lose no money! To get the money you just spent on items back, simply sell the items you bought. Since you have just bought them, you'll get a full refund!

The Sims Hints

    Get a Graveyard With Ghosties

    OK, so you fancy a graveyard in your back garden that is haunted from midnight till 3am. On Play The Sims (if you do this on Get a Life you have to restart the level) use an empty lot and build : a fireplace with walls surrounding 3 sides of it. then buy flammable stuff like balloons, easels ect. get the members of the family trapped near the fireplace then get one of them to light it. put directly in front of it more stuff that can burn and wait. really, just wait! eventually the place starts to burn, the sims are burnt to death and the Grim Reaper gets to turn the body into a grave stone. make a new family and repeat a few times. on Buy mode you can move them around and when you have about 10 it will be haunted at night with bright, purple ghosts. voila!!

    Lots Of Money

    On the title screen hold down L + R, then type in the code freeall. Start playing, then pause the game and go to the buy menu, buy the most expensive thing you can find (its faster than buying cheaper things) keep on buying the same thing over and over again, and just place any where around or in side the house. Save and quit the game. Then restart the Gamecube. This time don't type in the code. Load your game, when you start playing pause the game and go to the buy menu, don't click on anything just move the joystick, click on the stuff that you bought, it will ask if you want to sell it, sell all of it until none of it is left, then you will have a lot of money (you can only get $999,999).

    Don't Worry, be Happy!!!

    Tired of your sim not being happy? is your job taking over the sim's enjoyment? well I have discovered a little pick me up. if you evict the family (leaving the stuff there, otherwise it wastes a lot of time getting it together. anyway, as threw family drives off, you can just move the family back into the house. every thing is the same, your sims stats are all full (apart from something easy to fill eg bladder), and you don't have to go to work on the day that you moved in. the only downside is that you don't get paid, but it is just like your sim having a day off!!! great when you are in a spot.

    Energy To Go!

    If you constantly want full stats just save your data (press start and save from there ONLY!! DO NOT save and quit, or leave the house and save from the neighborhood.) then evict the family from the house and move them into the same or different house. Then they will be restored with full status and still have all the same skill pts, friend, ect. ect.... so use the time to earn more skill points and other stuff, then repeat the same process!!! but please remember to save before you evict the family, otherwise you will have to repeat what you didn't save. isn't it great?!?
