    Contributing. A simmer on the official forum (TwistedMexican) discovered some more hidden cheat commands. PLEASE READ THE RED TEXT BELOW BEFORE USING:

    !!! THESE CHEATS CAN POSSIBLY BRICK YOUR CURRENT SAVE GAME CAUSING YOU TO LOSE ALL PROGRESSION. FOR EXPERIMENTAL PURPOSES, START A NEW SAVE GAME TO TEST THEM OUT !!!

    The Unofficial Cheats:
    (Virtually all of these will require “testingcheats true” to be activated)
    • Sims.remove_all_buffs” -- Removes all moodlets/emotions
    • Sims.add_buff [buff, low/high]” -- Adds a particular buff to the sim (spelling is very important)
      VALUES:
      sims.add_buff confidenthigh
      OR
      sims.add_buff e_buff_confident (This enables the cowplant essence effect, powerful and longer lasting)

      Energized: EnergizedLow or EnergizedHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Flirty: FlirtyLow or FlirtyHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Inspired: InspiredLow or InspiredHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Focused: FocusedLow or FocusedHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Playful: PlayfulLow or PlayfulHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Sad: SadLow or SadHigh (do not stack, high gives +2)
      Angry: Social_Angry, e_Buff_Angry, feelingangry, unfaithful (these all stack)
      Happy: Social_Happy or e_Buff_Happy (these two stack)
      Uncomfortable: e_buff_uncomfortable
      Embarrassed: e_buff_embarrassed, peedself (these two stack)
      ***NOTE: e_buff is the same mood effect granted by cowplant essence, strong and lasts 12 hours

    • Careers.promote [NameOfCareer]” -- Promotes Sim in current career
    • Careers.demote [NameOfCareer]” -- Demotes Sim in current career
    • Careers.add_career [NameOfCareer]” -- Adds a career
    • Careers.remove_career [NameOfCareer]” -- Removes a career
    • Money ###” -- Set’s funds to exact number
    • Sims.modify_funds +/-###” -- Adds or subtracts value from current funds
      Example: “Sims.modify_funds +500”
    • Sims.Spawn” -- Spawns sim and adds them to your household.
    • Sims.spawnsimple” -- Spawns sim on lot as visitor without adding to household.
    • “Aspirations.complete_current_milestone” -- Completes current aspiration challenge and awards points
    • "sims.add_buff Satisfaction_Points" -- Adds +100 aspiration/satisfaction points. However, this applies as a buff and so, you will need to either wait for it to expire or clear with sims.remove_all_buffs before reapplying.
    • traits.remove_trait [traitnameNoSpaces]” -- Removes a trait
    • traits.clear_traits” -- Removes all traits from sim
    • traits.equip_trait [traitnameNoSpaces]” -- Equips a particular trait for your sim
      Example: “traits.equip_trait SteelBladder”
    • Modifyrelationship YourSim(first name) YourSim(last name) TargetSim(first name) TargetSim(last name) (-)50 Track_type” -- Modifies relationship between two sims
      *** Types of "track_type" AKA relationships (friends and romance): “Friendship_Main and Romance_Main
      Examples: “Modifyrelationship Beatrix Monroe Alexia Mercado -50 Friendship_Main” [For negative friendship] and “Modifyrelationship Beatrix Monroe Alexia Mercado 50 Romance_Main” [For positive romance]
    • Setage” -- Set’s your sim to adult age
    • Stats.set_skill_level <skilltype> 1-10” -- Adjusts a sim’s skill level
      VALUES: Major_Fishing
      Major_Mischief
      Major_Guitar
      Major_Reaping?
      Major_Programming
      Major_Gardening
      Major_GourmetCooking
      Major_Comedy
      Major_Charisma
      Major_Writing
      Major_VideoGaming
      Major_Violin
      Major_RocketScience
      Major_Painting
      Major_Piano
      Major_Logic
      Major_Handiness
      Major_HomestyleCooking
      Major_Bartending (Mixology)
      Skill_Child_Social
      Skill_Child_Motor
      Skill_Child_Creativity
      Skill_Fitness
      Skill_Child_Mental

      Note: Skilltypes are in two varieties. AdultMajor and Skill. Leaving the Adult off should still allow the command to execute.
      EXAMPLES: “stats.set_skill_level AdultMajor_Skillname 10” or “stats.set_skill_level Major_Skillname 10”
    • Handyman -- Enables an NPC to come to the lot and fix broken objects.
      soak.enable_soak_handyman_situation (execute this cheat first)
      soak.create_soak_handyman_situation (execute this cheat after)

    • Maid -- Enables an NPC to come to the lot and clean.
      soak.enable_soak_maid_situation (execute this cheat first)
      soak.create_soak_maid_situation (execute this cheat after)

    • Party -- Causes a ton of sims to show up for a party on your lot. They leave after a few sim hours have passed.
      soak.enable_soak_party_situation (execute this cheat first)
      soak.create_soak_party_situation (execute this cheat after)

      Make your sim act like a maid!
      They'll behave normally, do everything you tell them to as soon as you tell them, and do whatever they want when you aren't directing them. The difference? The second there's a puddle, a dirty plate, or trash to be taken out, they'll stop their own actions and go fix it.

      Turn Maid Behavior on:

      sims.add_buff buff_Role_ServiceNPC_Maid

      Turn Maid Behavior off:
      sims.remove_buff buff_Role_ServiceNPC_Maid
    There are more scrambled all over posts in the thread over there that I didn't include in this list, so feel free to check it out here: http://goo.gl/kpp4wm

    Correcting Typing Formats:
    • resetSim {FirstName} {LastName}
    • How you write it: resetsim john smith
    • headlineeffects{on/off}
    • How you write it: headlineeffects { on } or headlineeffects { off }. Use the spaces.
    • testingcheats {true/false}
    • You don't use the { } symbols. Just type testingcheats true or testingcheats false
    • Stats.set_skill_level <skilltype> 1-10”
    • You don't type in the < > symbols. It will look like this: Stats.set_skill_level Major_Painting 7
    This is just to show the specific format, so people aren't adding these symbols or not putting spaces, etc. where they are/are not supposed to be.

    And don't add any of the [ ] symbols for the listed cheats with brackets, like Careers.promote [NameOfCareer]
    It'll just be Careers.promote Writer
    Okay I'm done. again I'm just trying to help the waaaay overly literal people like me who typed everything as it was XD I'm just trying to be helpful. D: >_<

    The turning the hover outline off cheat they added doesn't work in my game. It only stays on for about five minutes. Oh well, back to using the mod.
