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

Neighborhood Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • changeLotZoning [residential | community | greek | dorm | secretsociety]
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.
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.

Build Cheats[edit | edit source]

  • boolProp allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation [true/false]
Allows objects to be placed at a 45 degree angle by pressing the < or > keys; clicking and dragging to rotate will only rotate in the normal 90 degree increments.
Some objects may not work correctly when placed diagonally.
Sims can walk through certain objects that are placed at a 45 degree angle, such as multi-grid objects.
  • deleteAllFences
Deletes all fences on the lot. Must be in build mode to use this cheat.
  • deleteAllWalls
Deletes all walls on the lot. Must be in build mode to use this cheat.
  • deleteAllHalfWalls
Deletes all half walls on the lot. Must be in build mode to use this cheat.
  • deleteAllAwnings
Deletes all awnings on the lot. Must be in build mode to use this cheat.
  • deleteAllObjects [doors/windows/stairs]
Deletes the type of object specified on the lot. Must be in build mode to use this cheat.
  • IndividualRoofSlopeAngle [15-75]
Adjusts the pitch of individual roof sections on the lot. To use, enter the code and, while holding the ^ Ctrl and ⎇ Alt keys, click on the roof section(s) to be adjusted.
This cheat was broken when Pets was first shipped, in that the cheat could be used but changes would not be saved with the lot. Install the Pets patch to fix this.
  • roofSlopeAngle [15-75]
Adjusts the angles of all roofs on the lot, measured in degrees. Acceptable values are 15 to 75.
  • boolProp dormSpecificToolsDisabled [true/false]
Setting this to false enables build/buy mode tools that would normally be disabled when in a dorm lot. It also works for community lots, although any changes made to the lot will not be saved.
  • setHighestAllowedLevel [number]
Sets the amount of floors allowed. Do not build any higher than 16 floors, or the game will crash.
This cheat works sporadically in later expansions, and does not work in the base game. To build higher, the "Dormer Trick" can be used to build one more level up; simply build to the highest level possible without cheats, build a dormer, and then build a wall on the new level. The dormer can be safely removed after this.

Gameplay Cheats[edit | edit source]

Allows the player to cancel interactions in a pet's queue.
  • boolProp controlPets [true/false]
Allows the player to control pets in the same manner as other Sims.
  • boolProp disablePuppyKittenAging [true/false]
Toggles aging for puppies and kittens. Does not work on adult animals; use the regular aging [on/off] cheat for this.

  • lockAspiration [on/off]

  • aspirationPoints [amount]
Gives the selected Sim the specified amount of aspiration points, so they can buy aspiration rewards. Won't affect the aspiration bar.
