Regarding the Cheats & Hints.
K, i'm posting this here cos the last time I tried to contribute to cheathappens.com they ignored me.
The cheats posted in the other threads work, at least the ones i've tried.
Kaching Adds §1.000,- to household funds
Motherlode Adds §50.000,- to household funds
Now for a little trick on How To Keep Your Sim/Sims Alive 4ever(while the rest of the world ages like the puny mortals that they are):
The trick is simply a meal called AMBROSIA
a.Needed skills(they do not have to be on the same sim to work):
1-Gardening lvl 10
2-Cooking lvl 10
3-Fishing lvl 10
1- 1xLife Fruit(obtainable by growing Life Plants from Unknown rare/special seeds found throught the game world)
2- 1xDeathFish(which can be fished after 12am in the pond from the Graveyard. To fish it you need to use Angelfish as bait. To fish Angelfish, you need to use Alley Catfish as bait. To fish Alley Catfish you need cheese as bait. Cheese can be bought from the grocery store :P)
Besides the the things above you need the fishing/cooking books to learn how to cook ambrosia and the required fish.
The person who eats the Ambrosia meal gets younger. NO, he will not become a teenager if he is an young adult; young adult if he is an adult; adult if he is an elder,etc. It's just that if your sim becomes an elder in 5 days, and he eats the ambrosia he will become an elder in 20 days or somthing. This way he can stay an adult forever.
If you have at least 2 sims under the same roof and one of them dies you will get a Special Opportunity message to go to the Science Lab to revive him as a ghost. I didn't test this feature too much though so i'm not sure if the ghost ages or what happens if it does.
Ghosts under your control don't have any special tricks up their sleeve. They're not that different from regular sims (except u can see through them and they make these wierd noises)
Ghosts also can't have kids, go figure...
NOTE!!!: if a ghost eats ambrosia it becomes human again!!! That's rich!
Well I hope this works, if it doesn't pls don't flame me, kk thx! :P
