Glitches

  • Easy aspiration

    This works best in a dorm where there are a lot of students.Wait until your sim gets the "do assignment" want.Wait for a NPC to start doing theirs,and when they are nearly finished,issue a social command to the NPC.He/she will leave the work on the desk.click on it and finish it,but you get the points even tough it isn't your work!

  • Play as the NPC's your teen Sims bring home from school

    Since those NPC's that they bring home are teens, you'll never be able to have them move in with you, but if you go to the Neighborhood screen and go to where the Sim bin is, you'll see an option that says 'Send Sims to college' under that menu is all of the teen Sim NPC's. Send them to college and play them there until they Graduate or once at college just have them drop out to send them back to the Neighborhood and in the Sim bin where you can have them move into a lot and play them there.

  • The Mysterious Friend

    Whenever, you use your portable gaming system, after finishing playing it, a relationship point gain will appear over your head. After playing with the game many times, your Sim will even develop a crush on it. The strange part is though, no new Sims are added to your friends list.

Easter Eggs

  • Will Wright's Guest Appearence

    When you go to the Create-A-Sim menu there is a room with a mirror and window, for designing your sim. In the left hand corner (beside the mirror) there is a mysterious potrait. This is Will Wright as a sim!

Secrets

  • Change TV Volume

    The cheat command floatProp tvVolume X will change the volume of the TV in The Sims 2 University.

    The default value for X is 0.5. Lowering this to 0.0 mutes the TV. Subsequently, raising it to 1.0 raises the volume.

  • Easy Free Items in Dorms

    In order for this trick to work, you'll either have to have a computer that has no problem loading the TS2U lots, or patience. Either one will work. ;)

    First of all, create a large household - eight, if the loading times won't be too bad. This is to insure that you have a family with the maximum amount of starting money possible. Next, move them into whichever dorm you want to have a lot of objects/wallpapers that don't come with the dorm. Go into buy mode and buy whatever you wish with that household's spending money. Now move them out. If you happen to enter the lot after you've moved them out, you'll notice that the objects and/or aspiration rewards they have purchased do NOT go with them (the objects/rewards are still there). You can do this as many times as you want to get as many free objects/changes in the dorms as you want! Have fun!

  • 20,000 the Easy Way

    Make sure that you have at least one family in the Family Bin in your neiborhood. When you are in the Neiborhood View, pick one of the families in the Family Bin and highlight the house that you want to have instant cash. Merge the households like normal. When you go into the house that you merged, you will be 20,000 richer. If you want, you can move the new resident or residents out like normal. You can repeat this as much as you like to be as rich as you want!
