The Sims 2: Apartment Life expansion pack is required for these cheats.

Neighborhood Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • changeLotZoning [residential | community | apartmentbase]
This changes the zoning type of the lot. Before rezoning a lot using this cheat, make sure there are no Sims currently living in the lot. To use this cheat, enter the lot that you would like to rezone, and then enter the cheat, choosing one of these zoning options.
Note that zoning a beach lot into an apartment lot will severely corrupt the ocean and lot terrain and is strongly not recommended.
Do not change a residential lot that has been or is occupied to another lot zoning type, such as a community lot. Doing so may corrupt the neighborhood.
Do not convert an apartment to an apartment sublot (e.g. changelotzoning apartmentsublot), as the lot will disappear and possibly become corrupted.[1]

Build Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • boolProp apartmentBuildBuyRestrictions [on/off]
Permits certain buy mode objects which normally are disabled in apartments to be purchased. The only known disabled objects are the secret door bookshelf and closets.
  • boolProp aptSubLotSpecificToolsDisabled [true/false]
If set to [false], players can pick up, move, and delete objects outside the currently rented apartment.
  • boolProp aptBaseLotSpecificToolsDisabled [true/false]
If set to [false], players can enable build mode while editing an empty apartment lot.
Do not use the boolProp aptBaseLotSpecificToolsDisabled false cheat to make structural changes, such as building walls or stairs, while the lot is zoned as an apartment of any kind. This will result in inconsistency with the apartment "base lot" and apartment "sub lots", and could possibly corrupt the lot.[2]

Similarly, do not use the boolProp aptSubLotSpecificToolsDisabled false cheat to edit buy mode objects in communal areas while the apartment has at least one playable resident moved in. Again, this will result in inconsistency and could corrupt the lot. The cheat can be used to resolve some issues though, such as date and outing rewards getting stuck outside of apartment units, unable to be picked up in normal buy mode.[2]

More information on editing apartment lots can be found at Game guide:Building an apartment.

Gameplay Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • boolProp testingCheatsEnabled [true/false] Rent Furnished
It is possible to rent an apartment with all of its furnishings by enabling testingcheatsenabled, shift+clicking on the door of the apartment you would like to rent, and selecting "Rent Furnished". The Sim must be standing next to the door, and they must not have any other actions in their queue.

Miscellaneous Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • changeLotClassification [low | middle | high]
This changes the lot classification of the lot. The lot will remain this classification until the clearLotClassValue cheat is used.
  • clearLotClassValue
This clears any "changeLotClassification" cheat used on the lot and sets the lot class to the correct calculated value.
  • printLotClass
This prints the lot's class (low, middle, or high) as well as the corresponding numerical lot class value. The lot class on an apartment lot will determine which social class townies move into it.
