Hints and Cheats
As I have no experience of any
computer games I am really grateful for these contributions. I do,
however, have to rely on the information received being genuine. In
view of this I must stress I cannot guarantee results.
I realise that these games are now
somewhat dated and may even be obsolete but I thought the information may be
useful to some and, perhaps, difficult to find so I have left it on site.
If you know any more
for the games listed or know any for different games please send them to us and we will
include them. Email us
A word of warning here, (sent in by and anonymous
visitor) - apparently some of the sites featuring "game cheats" are thought to
be harvesting the email addresses of visitors in order to promote porn sites.
is also good
for providing answers.
Thanks to Joe and grandson
Bear for these

Magic garbage bag
The following trick will save the time needed to take the garbage to the street. Buy the
30 simolian trash can. Order your Sim to empty it, then cancel the order just as they
remove the bag from the trashcan. Then, order them to pick up the mess that they just
created. Your Sim will return the full bag to an empty can. Repeat this each time it fills
and trash will never have to be brought outside again.
2: Whenever your garbage can is full, go to the buy mode and sell
it! Since it only takes a few days to get full, you will get the full amount back.
Then just buy a new one.
Thanks to Amanda for this one.
Keep an unpaid bill until the mailman delivers the next set of bills. Pay the original
bill when your mailbox is filled with the next set of bills. This should cause the bills
inside the mailbox to disappear.
While playing a game, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [Alt] + C and enter the
"klapaucius" code. Then, display the cheat prompt again and type
"!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!:!;!" (up to sixty
total commands may be entered).
I have just been informed by a visitor that
you can also type in !;9 and then keep clicking "Enter".
To keep losses to a minimum on your statistics, when you see you are on your last possible
move before losing the game you are playing, minimise that game to the bottom of the
screen and play another if you want to. You can keep doing this when you know you
are about to lose the game. When you finish, shut down the computer. When
restarting these almost lost games will not be counted as losses.

Time of day

different time of day type in set_hour then type in a number from 1-24.
