The Sims 3 PC Cheats, Hints, Codes.
Easter Egg: Painting Spore and More
When your Sim finally reaches the top level in painting, they begin to paint masterpieces. Look at the paintings for some nice surprise. One is an image of a Spore creature.
Hint: Mysterious Mr. Gnome
If on one of you sim travels you happen to find a Mysterious Mr. Gnome, DO NOT SELL HIM!! Apart from being a very valuable item, he has some entertaining qualities. When you go to sleep at night he will move... not when you're watching of course but if you kick him and stand him up again he will change positions.
Cheat: Force Twins
Bring up the cheat console (See above cheats), click on a pregnant Sim to control it, then enter this code in the console to have twins: forcetwins
Hint: Guitarfreaks Glitch
If you want your Sim to master the guitar skill and learn all of the songs, Don't just play the guitar to reach level 10 because you want be able to learn new songs from books.
To learn the new songs just reach level 5 in the guitar skill, then put a level 5 book in your Sims inventory and click on the guitar and select new song (to learn it).
When you reach level 6, do the same thing again for level 6 books. Keep repeating this process until you reach level 10 and your Sim will now know every song you've taught it.
When your Sims take a video game break, you can zoom in on the TV and identify various EA games on the tiny screen.

In Ground View mode, hold SHIFT and click a spot and your Sim will teleport to it.
You can also click and drag your Sims' need bars to full. SHIFT-click the mailbox and select Make Needs Static to keep the max level until you leave the game. (Note: if you SHIFT-click the mailbox and it says Make Needs Dynamic, select that. SHIFT-Click the mailbox again and it will say Make Needs Static) This must be repeated each time you re-enter the game.

Hint: Cooking Skill Exploit
Note: This glitch requires a TV with a cooking channel and a video game system. First, have one Sim sit down and watch TV. Switch the TV over to the cooking channel so that the Sim can start earning its skill point. Now, have a second Sim go over and start playing video games. You should now notice that although the TV is displaying video games, the first Sim still has the skill meter above its head! Simply allow this Sim to sit there until it decides to go do another activity on its own. After that, the skill meter should stay above its head until you start another cooking skill activity. As an added bonus, you can train two skill points at once! i.e., Go work out and both the athletic and cooking skills will continue to rise.
Addition. This also works with the Fishing Skill and the Gardening Skill provided you have a TV with those capabilities.
