Here are all the cheats in The Sims 3 with explanations on how to use them and what they can do. I have found other cheats advertised on the internet however when I have tested them they have not seemed to have worked. If there are any more you know of that you have tested, please tell me by commenting here or posting in our forum. To open the cheat window hold down CTRL+SHIFT+C and a window at the top should appear where you can enter your cheats. If this does not work, and you are on Vista, try CTRL+ALT WINDOWS+C all at the same time. Now here are the cheats of which you will enter into the window.
