Slow Down and Trap Burglars (Trap Roomies Too)

If you need 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 to make him walk in slow motion allowing the police time to arrive. To trap a burgler, pause the game and build a fence around them and then call the police.

To do this with a roomie simply repeat, but no need to call the cops.

Eliminate Bills

To eliminate paying bills completely, use the "move_objects on" cheat and simply pick up your mailbox, then hit DELETE. Remember to turn "move_objects off" when done.

Kill Your Sim

To kill off your sim make a swimming pool then send him or her in, then remove the ladders and diving board.

Never Miss Work
