Glitches

  • Easy Money

    Build a wall and put wallpaper on one side and leave the other side blank. Then select the wallpaper as if you were going to sell it. Switch over to the other side of the wall and sell that. You'll get the money for the wallpaper selected and it will still be there so you can keep selling the wallpaper.

Easter Eggs

  • Always-On-Duty Monkey Butler

    This glitch, or cheat, or whatever you would like to refer to it as, I found very useful. This glitch will involve, 'Meet Major Domo!{$15,000} ', a light (one that hangs from the wall, not on the floor){$85, $110, $135} , and anything that will fit under the light{?} . Now, I did this in the bathroom with a sink and a 'Blue Plate Special Sconce' light {$135}. Buy 'Meet Major Domo!' but don't release him yet. Place the wall light fixture over the other item, and wait for the light to burn out, (or you can put lot of lights over a lot of other items and wait for one of them to burn out). Then, release the monkey butler, he will clean up everything, fix everything, then he will go to the light hanging on the wall, but he won't be able to reach it because of the item on the floor, which blocks his way. So he will stay there trying to figure out how to get to the light, but, as long as you don't move the item under the light, or the light itself, he will stay there. And as soon as something else needs to be fixed or cleaned up, he'll do it. Although this may cause traffic jams when you try and get into the room, I found this glitch very rewarding.
