The Sims 3 is a complete experience and, in our humble opinion, some of its aspects and gameplay features are actually better than The Sims 4. That said, there is also no shame in cheating (especially in a single player game), so here is the complete list of The Sims 3 console cheat commands.

How To Enter Console Command In The Sims 3

While playing the game, press CTRL+SHIFT+C to bring up the commands console. Remember, some cheats need the testincheatsenabled set to true in order to edit your Sims.

This is how it should appear on your screen
