The Sims 3 meets well in order to play with life. But, unlike the real world, here we can use tricks and cheats to gain many advantages. You can use cheating to get rich, expand construction possibilities and even free up incredible resources for recording videos! To activate the cheat text box, just press Ctrl + Shift + C (for Windows) or Command + Shift + C (for MacOS). Enter the chosen code and press Enter . After successfully activating the cheat, simply repeat the same operation or press Esc to exit the console and return to the game. Warning: some cheats can cause bugs , so it is recommended to save the game before using them.
