How to able cheats in The Sims 3 for Xbox and PS3

Do you remember lamas? We talked about a lama for cheat on our preview because da Sam Player used some cheats during the event in Milan. In the final version of the game, there is the lama, and it serves to cheat. With this useful object, you can use all karma power, for example! 

WARNING: Activating the cheat will disable achievements, trophies, and challenges for your current save file! The game will prompt you to save a duplicate file before activating the cheat (which you should do), ensuring that you can go back to an unsullied version of your sims.

Here's how you do it:
  • You must be in-game with your sims
  • Press Start to bring up the pause menu
  • Press the four shoulder buttons simultaneously. That's L1, R1, L2, R2 on PS3, and LT, RT, LB, RB on 360.
  • A dialogue box pops up and asks if you want to enable cheating. You do!
  • Now you can select Spoot the Llama from the menu. Go to build mode, open the catalog, select "buy," and find the llama by going to "DĂ©cor," then "Misc DĂ©cor." You can place him for free!
  • Once the llama is on your lot, go back to live mode. You can interact with it to access all of the cheats.
If that description isn't enough, you can watch the cheat in action in the video below (Gameinformer)

Tips for newbies

And here 5 tips found on A+E Interactive (from the producer Azure Bowie-Hankins)

1. Feel free to create Sims. That’s what the game is about right? Don’t be afraid to model them after family members, friends, fictional characters. You should make two or three of them and start experimenting. You can fulfill their lifetime wishes or go against them. You can nurture your Sims or make their lives full of misery. You never know how they’ll react until you try things out.

2. If you’re going to build a big house, make sure you hire a maid. Sims are messy creatures and if you have a mansion, you may spend all your time telling them to clean up instead of letting them work on their careers or other hobbies.

3. The musician or science career track have their perks.
Azure likes having her Sim be a musician because it’s something she personally can never do. Part of the game is about living out fantasies virtually. If you’re more practical about your career goals, it’s good to go with the science track. When you hit the top level, you can create a helpful robot.

4. Stay away from kids if you’re novice.
Just like in real life, children can be a handful. If you’re new to this, Azure recommends you live in a house full of young adults. You don’t have to worry about as many people. In The Sims 3, if you don’t take care of your kids, then child protective services can take them away. You can even be in weird situations where you adopt a child in your neighborhood after the social workers had taken them away from the parents. To me, that sounds like drama.

5. You can have career without having a career.
This is how Azure likes to play. There’s enough outside activities that players can earn enough money for a decent living. I suppose this could be interpreted as a home business. But what’s great is that it makes your schedule more flexible compared to a regular nine-to-five job.
