Although I’m not a big fan of cheat codes, you sometimes need to cheat to achieve the results you want when building your houses in Sims 3. So without further ado, here are all the cheat codes known for The Sims 3.

First of all, press Control+Shift+C on your keyboard to bring up the code console (it appears at the very top of the screen), then enter one of the following cheats and press enter to activate.

fullscreen on/off

constrainFloorElevation [true/false]
Allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, Sims, and other structures on them. Walls, floors, and objects will move with the terrain.

enableLlamas [on/off]
Gives a message that says, “Llamas enabled.”

jokePlease
Gives you a joke in the code console prompt.

hideHeadlineEffects [on/off]
Hides all meters and effects in the game, such as the plumbbob and skill meter.

quit
