The Sims 2 - PC Cheats and Codes
May 15, 2007
Standard The Sims 2 PC Cheats and Codes. To enter cheats: Open the command console by simultaneously pressing CTRL+SHIFT+C. Enter the code into the command console and hit enter/return. Note that cheats are case-sensitive.
- help: lists all cheats in the game
- help (cheatname): displays specific information about the cheat (example “help expand“)
- exit: closes cheat window
- expand: expands or contracts the cheat window
- kaching: adds 1000 Simoleans
- motherlode: adds 50,000 Simoleans
- moveObjects on/off: removes footprint limitation for all object placement in Buy Mode and Build Mode. Removes limitations placed on hand tool for when objects are in use, or are normally non-movable objects. Known to cause issues with game elements, routing, hidden object generation and manipulation, etc. Note: This cheat allows you to delete objects that normally cannot be deleted, such as Sims, the mailbox, and the garbage can. If you delete these objects, there is no way to get them back. Be careful. (example “moveObjects on″)
- aging on/off: prevents Sims from aging. This can disrupt the carefully tuned gameplay balance, and will prevent little Johnny from ever growing up. Treat this cheat with care.
- autoPatch on/off: re-enable notifications when there is a game update available for The Sims 2. Turn Autopatch on and go to the Custom Content Browser (the little snowflake button on the UCP in the neighborhood). If there’s an update, you will be asked whether you want to download it.
- slowMotion (0 to 8): the slowMotion cheat takes one parameter: the “slowness” setting (example “slowMotion 3“). 0 is normal speed and 8 is the slowest speed.
- boolProp enablePostProcessing true/false: enables the use of postprocessing cheats (see below). Please note that you must have a video card that can handle pixel shaders in order to successfully use this cheat. If you use the cheats and you don’t have pixel shaders, the screen will most likely go partially dark. It will not come back until you turn off enablePostProcessing. If you turn on postprocessing, and you turn on cinematics, and a cinematic plays, you may also experience unwanted graphical glitches.
- bloom (r g b x) (rgb is color) (x is the bloom amount 0.0 to 1.0): adds a blur effect, like a sitcom flashback moment. Must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.
- vignette (centerX centerY X) (X is the vignetteing factor) (0.0 to 1.0): adds a blur effect from the specified center. Using “vignette 0.5 0.5 0.5″ should put some blurry bits at the edge of the screen. Vignette 0.5 0.5 1.0 is maximum edge blurryness. Must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.
- filmGrain (0.0 to 1.0): makes the screen grainy. Must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work (example “filmGrain 0.1“).
- letterBox (0.0 to 0.4): adds a letterbox effect to the view. Must have entered boolProp enablePostProcessing true for this cheat to work.
- stretchSkeleton (factor): strectches skeleton of selected Sim. Factor 1.0 indicates no stretch (Factor < 1.0 makes shorter, factor > 1.0 taller)
- faceBlendLimits on/off: turns on/off facial bounding limitations. Prevents normal corrections made by the game for two parents with very different facial structures.
