Sims mod and cheat help


Apologies for any typos in advnce, I am disabled and find it hard to reach the keyboard.

I’ve been a simmer for several years now. I decided to stay with sims 3 as I have all the expansion packs and am working on getting the stuff packs. One thng I haven’t done is learnt a lot of cheats or used mods, but as I am staying with it I hope to improve my gameplay.

I have 3 mods from NRAAS: master controller and error trap (I was told make game smoother and help me reset sims if they get stuck but only use a couple of buttons) and saver that reminds me to save regularly so I don’t have those 3 hour sessions followed by a crash!

I want to get more advanced though, preferably using mods rather than typing chet codes as I find typing hard

1: I want to move a family to another town, but two of their kids have moved out and have partners. I want to take them to and get them new homes. Is there a way to do this?

2: I plan to move to starlight shores, will the seeds from explansion packs that cme after like supernatural and university spawn there? Also, I got dragon valley for Christmas, is there a way to get the dragon eggs into other worrlds?

3: I’ve watched house builds and seen people moving objects fluidly, not restricted to the grids, how can I do that?

4: Is there a way to get a cowplant without buying. for example genie, crypt etc

5: Lastly, can you suggest any other mods that may help me? I can only get to china to get the martial arts stuff, and haven’t found the wine making stuff in france before th game freezes. I can’t get to Egypt

Sorry for all the questions, but I am wanting to get more from my game. I got the sims 2 ultimate free, but as I never played sims2 it is confusing with everything installed at once, so I want t explore more in my game

Thank you in advnce for your time and help

I believe with sims 3, you have to be careful about movine sims to different towns as it can cause currupt files and glitches in the file. Just a warning in case something like that happens, it'd be wise to back up the family just in case.

As for moving objects without the grid restriction, don't quote me on this because it's been a while since I've played sims 3. But I think you hold down the alt key on the keyboard while placing objects and you can place them anywhere whether on the grid or not.

hi, thanks for the warnng. one of the reasons i use the saver mod is it automatically saves into 4 files, taking it in turns, so if something goes wrong i have 3 older files i can go back to. i have a 5 gen gamily start flitching really bad, this got them back more or less working, although i lost a couple of hours of gameplay for it

i'll give alt a try, thanks, can't hurt anyway!

Ah okay! I always did that myself when playing, started a new save from time to time, and always saved a couple times pretty close together so the backups weren't toooo far behind. Never a bad idea to be safe with that game.

And no problem! Hopefully that's the key, but like you said, doesn't hurt to try it at all :)
