Sims 3 is all about customization, but it can be difficult to make major changes to your Sims once the game has started. However, you can use the Create a Sim tool at any point in the game thanks to a few built-in cheats. There are some flaws in the cheats, but this way you can make big changes to all your Sims!

Steps

This will probably take a few minutes.

Step 8. Make your edits

Be aware that doing this can sometimes lead to bugs sneaking into the game, as the game wasn't designed to support this. Not all edits will be applied once you are done and there is a chance that your game will crash once you exit CAS.

Editing a Sim in CAS takes him back to the beginning of his life stage. For example, if you own a Young Adult Sim that turns into an Adult within one day, editing them in CAS will return them to the beginning of their Young Adult stage

Warnings

  • Use this cheat at own risk. Many users have reported crashes and errors occurring after opening CAS during a normal gaming session. Always save before using this cheat.
