Secret Forgotten Grotto lot in Oasis Springs:
To enter the hidden Forgotten Grotto lot in Oasis Springs, visit the Desert Bloom park
lot in the Oasis Springs neighborhood. At the park, go far behind the lot to a public 
space with a bathroom stall. Then, proceed though the canyon to the left to find a 
boarded up cave entrance. Interact with the Mine Cave. Your Sim must have Level 10 
Hardiness to break down the wooden barrier and explore inside. To complete the Adventure
Cave, select the options in the following order: "Take The Wide Path", "Climb The Ladder",
"Step Onto The Ledge". You will now be in Forgotten Grotto. This area contains the 
following collectibles: Fish, Frog, Lily, Mineral, Mushroom, Onion, Potato, and Sage.

Secret Sylvan Glades lot in Willow Creek:
To enter the hidden Sylvan Glades lot in Willow Creek, visit the Crick Cabana lot in the 
Willow Creek neighborhood, and explore the public space next to the house to find a large
tree labeled "Sylvan Tree" with flowers growing out from the sides. Repeatedly click the 
tree and select "View" until a door appears. Enter the Tree Adventure mode, and select the
options in the following order: "Follow The Sound", "Follow Downstream", "Enter The Mist".
You will now be in Sylvan Glades. This area contains the following collectibles: Basil, 
Bluebell, Cherry Tree, Fish, Frog, Lily, Mineral, Mushroom, Pear Tree, Snapdragon, and 

Growing Cow Plants:
To grow the special Cow Plant, you must first acquire a rare Cow Plant seed. They can 
be found by traveling to the Desert Bloom lot in Oasis Springs, then move toward the 
public space behind the park where there is a rock canyon leading to a boarded up cave 
entrance. Along the rock walls are tiny ponds that are the source of the shallow stream.
Fish at this area to eventually get a Cow Plant seed. Once you have a Cow Plant seed, 
return to your Sim's home lot. Drag the seed from your inventory onto the ground where
you want to plant it. Once it is planted, make sure to water it daily, and eventually 
it will grow to full size. If the mound of dirt at the base turns light brown, it means
the soil is dry and needs watering. A fully grown Cow Plant is a dangerous creature. 
They generate rejuvenating milk after eating Sims that are fooled by their false cake
tongues. Additionally, make sure to keep feeding your Cow Plant meat when it is fully
grown or else it may die. The Cow Plant was first introduced in The Sims 2.

How to Get Writer's Block:
Sometimes, getting over the first hurdle in the writing aspiration, Bestselling Author, 
where your character must get writer's block can be extremely complicated. However, you 
can pass this easily by using the "motives remain static" cheat above and then practice 
writing for about 6-24 hours.

Set skill level:
After activating the "testingcheats true" code, use the "Stats.set_skill_level [skill name] 
[1-10]" at the console window. Use the following entries as the skill name:


After activating the testingcheats true code, enable the following codes to change the 
relationship between two sims. 

* To change friendships, use the command Modifyrelationship [your Sim's first and last names] 
  [target Sim's first and last names] [50 or -50] Friendship_Main.
* To change romance, use the command Modifyrelationship [your Sim's first and last names] 
  [target Sim's first and last names] [50 or -50] Romance_Main.

To set a relationship, use the relationship.add_bit [your Sim's ID number] [target Sim's 
ID number] [relationshipBit name] command. Because you cannot remove a relationshipBit 
after it is set, you have to overwrite it. 

Use the following entries for the relationshipBit name: 


Hidden lots:
* Sylvan Glades in Willow Creek neighborhood: Visit the Crick Cabana lot in the Willow Creek 
neighborhood. Search the public space next to the house to find a tree labeled "Sylvan Tree" 
that appears differently than the others. It is a big tree with flowers growing from its sides.
Click the tree and select the "View" option repeatedly until a door appears. Select the Tree 
Adventure, and choose the following options in order: "Follow the Sound", "Follow Downstream",
and "Enter the Mist". The Sylvan Glades lot is now accessible. It contains the following 
collectibles: Minerals, Basil, Fish, Frogs, Lily, Snapdragon, Bluebell, Strawberry, Mushroom,
Pear Tree, and Cherry Tree . 

* Forgotten Grotto in Oasis Springs neighborhood: This requires a Sim with level 10 Hardiness.
Visit the Desert Bloom Park lot in the Oasis Springs neighborhood. Move far behind the lot 
and find the public space that has a bathroom stall. From here, follow the canyon to the left
to find a boarded up entrance to a cave. Interact with the Mine Cave to break down the wooden
boards and enter. Complete the Adventure Cave by choosing the following options in order: 
"Take the Wide Path", "Climb the Ladder", and "Step onto the Ledge". The Forgotten Grotto is 
now accessible. It contains the following collectibles: Onions, Sage, Lily, Mushroom, Mineral, 
Fish, Frog, and Potato. 

Growing Cow Plants:
Go to the Desert Bloom lot in the Oasis Springs neighborhood and go to the canyon that leads 
to the Mine Cave. Along the rock walls of the canyon is a small pond that feeds a shallow 
stream. Fish at the pond until you get Cow Plant seed. Return to your home lot, open your 
inventory, and drag the seed to where you want to plant it. Once planted, water it daily 
until it grows to full size. If the dirt at the base of plant turns light brown, it needs 
to be watered. Once fully grown, you must feed the Cow Plant meat to keep it alive.

Voodoo Doll:
When fishing you may find rare items, including the Voodoo Doll. Try using the ponds in 
Sylvan Glades and Forgotton Grotto to increase the chances. The Voodoo Doll requires Skill 
Level 3 in Mischief to use, and improving that skill will give you better results. To raise
your Mischief skill, walk around and choose the "Mischief" bubble when interacting with 
other Sims. When you are able to, use the "Troll internet forums" action on the computer 
as well.

Edit Relationship Level with Sims:
First, make sure you have activated the testingcheats code (testingcheats true/testingcheats 
on). Open the console menu and copy/paste the code below and edit "PlayedSimFirstName 
PlayedSimLastName" with your Sim's information and then "TargetFirstName TargetLastName" 
with your target Sim's information and a number between -100 to 100. 
Note that this will only change how your Sim feels, not the NPC Sim.

-=Customize Sims relationships=-
modifyrelationship PlayedSimFirstName PlayedSimLastName TargetFirstName TargetLastName 
(-100 to 100) Friendship/Romance_Main

-=Makes Sims good friends=-

sims.add_buff pregnancy_inlabor    - Make Sim or Ghost pregnant at term.

How to Get Friendships and Romance Up Quickly:
Written by richjez

How do you get the love of your sim fast? Well in this guide the secrets of simmer 
love will be unfolded before your eyes.

-=The Photo Path=-
Did you know taking photos with a sim is a great fast way to get their friendship up? 
Well all you need is a camera from build mode. After that give it to your sim and have 
them take selfie with or of the sim of your loving. Its easy but it is a lot of photos.

-=The Kidnapper Path=-
As the name suggest you need to lock your simís lover in your home and locking the door 
for everyone but household (or just for certain sims). Then you can flirt to your 
heartís content.

-=The Date Path=-
Basically go on a date when you have enough romance and head to a lot where it has the
 romantic trait. (go to lot traits in build mode) and Valhalla! It works for me when 
getting the lover.

-=The Invader Path=-
Does your sim have no job? Good then youíll love this! A cheap but easy way for your 
sim to date. This only works if your simís lover has a home if not then this route fails. 
All you need to do Is to go into your loverís house and stay in it. its probably the 
worse way but hey it works.

By Doing "testingcheats true" and then typing "sims.spawn" A sim Will Directly Spawn 
in your household. The cheat has been in the sims 4 all the way back in 2015.
