The Sims series, at its core, is a life simulation game. Players get to create their own Sims and guide them through them through every day... or they can ball out and have their sim live the high life. Money is usually earned in the game by having sims get
a job, but there are a number of money cheats that can be typed in that will make any Sim rich instantly. The "motherlode" cheat puts 50,000 simoleons into a Sim's family funds, and there's also a "rosebud" and "kaching" cheat. Man, if only "motherlode" worked in real life!
