This is my full guide on TS3 Cheats! This used to be only about the Sims 3 Lifetime Happiness Cheat, but I felt the need to do more. Plus, you can get your name in the credits if you want to contribute!
Accessing and Enabling Cheats
Before you even start, you must make sure you can access the cheats, and that they are working. First, go to your title screen, where you can access your different towns.
Next, you need to enable the cheats. Perform the command Ctrl + Shift + C, similar to Ctrl + Alt + Delete. Your screen should become a bit dimmer, and a text box will appear at the top.
Next, type in the following command:
This is similar to turning on Cheat Mode in Unturned, or making a world with cheats in Minecraft, or using sv_cheats 1 in almost any Source Engine game. Make sure you do this on the title screen or it WILL NOT WORK. You can toggle cheats off by typing on the home screen, “testingcheatsenabled false” or closing the game and opening it. This is why you need to enable cheats for each individual session in order for them to work. Remember, to confirm a cheat, press Enter. The Ctrl + Shift + C command is also how you will access cheat codes while in game. Check my other guides for a guide on the cheat codes. Now, let’s move on.
Activating the Cheat
There is one way to activate the cheat after you have testingcheatsenabled turned on. First, you need to select the Sim you want to get more lifetime happiness for. Then, you need to open up the menu at the bottom where you can view basically all of the information about the Sim. You need to navigate to the Lifetime Rewards area, and locate this:
Next, you need to press and hold Ctrl, and click in this tiny area:
Each time you do, you will gain 500 lifetime happiness. This can be a very effective cheat, as lifetime happiness rewards are usually really good. There’s so much you can do with this cheat, and it can make playing a lot easier. But have you ever tried…
…using an autoclicker?
I made this section by myself when it first came out. That means I might have missed something. If you want to help me add something to this part of the guide (or anything else), then follow these steps below:
- Scroll down and comment.
- Help me with at least 1 piece of information to add.
- If you do, I will add you to a credits section at the end. I will not add you to Contributors, because when I remove you from the friend’s list, it will get rid of your name on the list. Also, you will have editing power, and I can’t just trust someone randomly with something I’ve worked so hard on. The credits section will be in order of how much you helped.
Even though the lifetime happiness cheat is one of the most popular cheats, there are some other cool cheats to take advantage of. Remember that most of them need testingcheatsenabled true to work. Here’s the list:

Cheats for Sims
Infinite Lifetime Happiness – See the sections of the guide above.
Change Relationships – Find the relationships tab, and you can drag the bar that shows the relationship left or right. It will be below another Sim that your Sim knows.
Modify Needs – Similarly to the cheat to change relationships, you can click and drag your motives, too.
Remove Moodlets – If you hold Ctrl while you click a moodlet, you can get rid of them. This can be used on good, bad, and neutral motives.
Clicking your Sim
Modify Traits – Clicking the option to modify traits will bring up the menu to change traits. Simple enough.
Age Up – Click the option ‘Trigger Age Transition’ will do exactly what it sounds like. Can only be used to age forwards.
If you press and hold Shift while you click something, it can give you special options while in cheat mode. Here’s a list of cheats:
Force a Sim to Move In – If you Shift-Click a Sim who isn’t in the household, you can take control of them and force them to join your household.
Force Events/Opportunities – If you shift-click your workplace, you can trigger events or opportunities.
There are several options when you shift-click the Mailbox of your home. Most of them are really clear with the name. Here’s the list:
Make Me Know Everyone
Make All Happy
Make Needs Static (disables all 6 of your needs)
Make Me Friends
Set Job (Can be used to change your job and the rank of your job)
Change Looks (like facial features)
Teleportation – Shift-click any patch of open land and select the teleport option to teleport there.
Build on Non-Owned lots – You can use this to build on lots that you do not own. Personally, it seems like it is not useful to me because you can use cheats to get the money to buy the lots.
