Welcome Back to the West

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Bring in the Clown:
Get one or more of your family in a bad mood and the tragic clown will appear! But be careful, he isn't very good at tricks, and he cries alot. (He gets really annoying and you can't get rid of him till your sims are happy again or you can kill him too in a fire if you're really sick of him.)

Kill the Tragic Clown:
Are you so sick of this clown and you can't get rid of him? Here is what to do! You can only get the tragic clown to come to your house when your sims are depressed and they must have the "tragic clown" painting for him to come. When he is at your house, just simply place the "tragic clown" painting above or near the fireplace and light a fire. When the painting burns up, so will the annoying tragic clown. Now you will learn not to buy that stupid painting again!

Clown Catchers:
If you want another cool way to get rid of the clown, go to and download the Clown Catchers. Once you have it into your game, call the Clown Catchers if the clown is at your house. Someone will come right over with a huge gun and warp him into it! Bye bye clown!

Talk on the Phone:
Wouldn't you like it if you could call friend just to talk, instead of just inviting your sim friends over? Well, you can! Go to and download the Telecom Upgrade. When it is in your game, you can call just to talk, or invite! Cool huh?

Bring in the Aliens:
Buy a telescope. Have your sims look around. But it doesn't mean your sim will find aliens right away, it could take awhile. If they arrive, they will abduct on or more of your sims! But don't worry, the aliens will bring them back sooner or later. When they do, they may end up messing around with their personality traits. (Once they could of been a neat-freak, then they become a total slob.)

The Grim Reaper Visits:
If one of your sims dies (Drowning won't bring the Grim Reaper) the Grim Reaper will come to collect the body. You can negotiate with the Grim Reaper and play paper, scissors, rock. If you win, he will resurrect the body, if you lose, he will take the body!

The Magical Genie:
Buy the genie lamp. Clean it, and the genie will appear. He will give you two choices to choose from each time (Could be love money, work, etc.) The wish may come true, or could even backfire!

Keep Genie out of Lamp:
First buy the genie's lamp. Then have one of your sims clean it. When the genie comes out go into buy mode. Type the cheat move_objects on then you can sell his lamp while he is out of it and voila, the genie is trapped out of the lamp (you can also move the genie in buy mode)

The Chemistry Side Effects:
Make a potion on the Chemistry set. There are a lot of different kinds (Pink, Green, Blue, Orange, etc.). Each one has a different side effect. One could refresh your needs, one could lower your needs, become invisible, turn into a monster, or turn into a zombie! (If you become a zombie, you can not turn back into a sim. Zombie is the green potion by the way.)

What Each Potion Does:
-Blue Potion: Refreshes and brings up your mood.
-Green Ption: Brings down your mood.
-Purple Potion: Turns you in to a Frankin Stein.(You cannot control your Sim, after it breaks everything, your Sim will turn back to normal. It takes about a day to clean up the mess the Frankin Stein made. So use your robots to help clean.)
-Red Potion: Someone falls in love with you.(That person should appear right behind you.)
-Orange Potion: Makes you Invisible.(Only for a short time.)
-Yellow Potion: Changes your personally around. (It doesn't bring your personally to the max.)
I will be trying to find out the zombie potion and the evil twin. It is funny but I drank a potion and got a evil twin. And they say their is a zombie potion, which I will be trying to figure out.

Servo the Home Applianced Robot:
Buy Servo, and he will clean up your house, repair all your broken things, and maybe even talk to you will his awesome robotic voice!

Voodoo Doll:
Buy the voodoo doll, and poke away your troubles at mean sims, or if you just want to have a little fun!

Make Your Gnomes:
Buy the carving knome set and you can make your own knomes! (Set them out on your lawn and watch what happens when your neighbors kick them!).

Play in Bed:
The term "play in bed" is not sex really. Just to have a little fun (yeah right). Buy the vibromatic heart bed and click "vibrate" and have another sim choose "play in bed" The heart bed is used best in the motel setting.

A Lot of Personality:
Start your person off with no personality traits then buy a lab table. Wait until they make the yellow potion. This will cause all of your personality traits to be at the max.

Cure the Guinea Pig Disease:
There are 3 different ways to cure this deadly disease. One is to get a lot of rest which is boring, the other two ways are a lot better! Either buy the "Forgotten Guinea Pig" painting and have your sick sim look at it. It will take a few hours or so to kick in but it will completely cure the disease. (Your sim might be cured right away.) And there is one more way. Buy the chemistry set, and try to make the white potion. Have your diseased sim drink it and they will be cured! (The white potion can only be made if a sim is infected with the virus).

Cheat Death:
To keep your sim alive even after he or she has died, simply use the "move_objects on" code to grab the Grim Reaper and delete him. Save and exit the game, then evict your family. You will have to furnish your house again, but at least your sim is not dead!

If you want to get the zombie potion, read this. Sometimes it has nothing to do with the chemisty set (the way did it). One of my sims died, so I had to play rock paper scissors to see if I could get my sim back. I won, but it said that my sim will never be the same. I became the zombie.

Entertain the Grim Reeper:
If the Reeper is around, set off fireworks and he'll applaud them.

Alternate Jobs:
If you want keep up your creativity and buy an artset and have your sim become a profressional painter, it takes a lot of work but it's a home job and it's fun seeing how much dough you can make.

Phone Slacker
If your independent people will call your home and tell you about things you won in contest or awards you may win, it's pathetic and not very dependenable but it works.

Gnome Maker
Use the mechanical little workshop and make gnomes, the more your mechanical skill the faster you make gnomes, the more gnomes you make the more money you can make. (I suggest that you first get your mechanical skill up by reading books then make the gnomes if you improve your mechanical skill making gnomes it get's annoying putting them down working, also build gnomes in a large place because they really start to fill up an area.

Have You Been Naughty or Nice?:
Get a fireplace and a Christmas tree in the same room, or within two to three rooms from one another and Santa may come. Beware though, if you don't leave cookies for Santa, he gets ticked off. Cool thing is that Santa leaves presents. Remember to leave Santa some goodies, such as cookies.
