Trivia / The Sims 2

  • Classic Cheat Code:
    • Writing "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" (the last word replaced with "false" to inactivate the code), in the neighbour hood, then enter the desired family and you now can mess around with it how much you want. You hold in "shift" and click on a sim to suddenly get very out-of-place options and go from there. You can spawn all from wishing wells to tombstones, turn them into vampires, mess with the sims' genders or names as well as make a girl pregnant with anyone, even her brother. This is not recommended though if you have a crash-tastic computer as these cheats can make it hang. Also, no matter what language you play in, the options will always be in English.
    • "motherlode" allows the family you play as to recieve §50000. Writing "kaching" will give you §1000. Writing "familyFunds <family/household name> <amount>" allows you the certain amount you want.
    • "maxmotives" fills up all the need bars on every sim in the household.
    • "boolprop controlpetson" allows you to control your pets, and "boolprop petactioncancelon" allows you to cancel their actions.
    • If a woman just got pregnant (you hear the lullaby), write in "forcetwins" and you will have twins when she later gives birth.
  • Urban Legend of Zelda:
    • Several alleged methods of getting twins, including the nonexistent "twinzR2cute" cheat. A "forcetwins" cheat, as well as cheesecake that increases the odds of twins, were added to throw the fans a bone, but not until Open For Business.
    • Not to mention the abundant rumors that female Sims could WooHoo (and be impregnated) by the Grim Reaper. Though, the truth in that rumor is that a female sim can be impregnated, via cheats, by Grim. Though actual Woohoo is impossible as it would be game-corrupting.
  • What Could Have Been: The developers had to start from scratch after a fire destroyed the original files. This means early promotional material shows a different version of The Sims 2 with more features than in the original base game, such as weather, and the characters having more animations.
