The Sims 2 (console)/cheats
Gamecube[edit | edit source]
- Cheat Gnome
- L, R, Up, A, Z
This cheat must be the first entered, because it is used to activate all of the cheats, excluding the sound effect ones. In order to use it, make your Sim walk up to it, select it, and choose from the menu of options. It is useless without using other cheats first. It can be used by both players.
Note: The cheat must be entered in the Relationship panel in the pause menu, the same goes for the other console versions of the game.
- 9,999 Simoleons
- R, L, Z, Right, Left
This gives your Sim §9,999. It can be used as many times as the player desires. The most Simoleons you can have at one time is §999,999.
- All Locations
- X, Z, Left, X, Up
This cheat only works in Story Mode. It allows all twelve lots to be accessible, without having to complete any Golden Wants or help other Sims.
- All Objects
- Z, X, Down, Left, Up
This unlocks all of the objects in Buy Mode. You also receive the exact amount of aspiration points you would need to unlock them.
- All Recipes
- Z, B, Up, Down, Right, A
This unlocks all the recipes in the cookbook.
- All Fashions
- B, Z, Down, Right, B
This unlocks all the clothes, accessories, and hair in Create A Sim. Oddly, though, it does not unlock the last hat on the list, which looks like a brain.
- Full Motives
- Up, X, Up, Right, Z
This makes all your Sim's needs full. It only effects the player who activated the cheat.
- Set Skill Level
- Y, X, B, Z, Left
With this cheat, you can choose what skill level your Sim is on for each category. For example, if your Sim is on level 1 in Cooking, you could use this cheat to make them have 10 in Cooking. You can either increase their skill or decrease it.
- Advance Time
- X, B, L, Up, Down
This advances time by six hours.
Note: Using this code when someone is at work or away may cause problems with them coming back.
- Horn Audio
- R, L, R, L, Y
This makes a horn sound play. You do not need the cheat gnome for this.
- Sim Voice
- Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right
This makes one of two Sim voice recordings play. You do not need the cheat gnome for this.
