The Baby Cheat

As promised, in the description of this blog, I am going to share some of my fave cheats with you.

Many of you, who still play The Sims (like I do), probably already know about this cheat. I've known about it for awhile, but I tried it for the first time just this month.
It works and man, does it save time and trouble!

For those of you who may not know of it:

After a baby is born, make sure everyone has finished getting all ga-ga (clapping) over the baby's birth.
Pause the game, once you are sure no one has a cradle icon in their list of actions.
Go to buy or build and use the "move_objects ON" cheat.
Delete each and every member of the Sims in the household, except the new baby.
Go back to live mode and unpause the game.
*Be careful NOT to bring ANY of the other family members back. At this time, you want them to stay in Sims Never Never Land (or wherever they go when you delete them for awhile).

After a few hours, the "take care of your baby, or we'll send the authorities out on your happy tushy" message will pop up. Don't worry about it. Just click "ok". They won't come.

I speed up the game and just let it run on high speed for 72 hours (from the time of the baby's birth). 72 hours after the baby is born, it will become a child. And your Sims didn't even have to "play, sing, feed" til they felt like dropping from exhaustion!
The downside of this cheat is, they will have only 20 relationship pts with the family members when born, rather than 50. Big woopdy ding poop. It's a fair trade off and takes no time at all to remedy.
He/she might not have as many personality points or interest points as his/her siblings, if you use this cheat, also.
If that bothers you, there are awesome hacks at a couple of sites to increase the interest points and add personality points. I use 'em all the time. They work fast and well!

Oh, and don't forget to bring your other Sims back when the new babe comes along!

Happy Simming!
