Sims: Castaway Stories, The - HotKeys


Total votes: 54
These 2 HotKeys are the only "codes" that works in both Freeplay Mode & Story Mode.

Ctrl-Shift-S Display Game Stats such as the FPS rate

Alt-Shift Displays information on the current lot and/or the objects/terrain under the mouse pointer. [A lot must be loaded first, for this to work]

Cheat Codes case insensitive:

boolProp dormSpecificToolsDisabled [truefalse] enables buy mode tools that would normally be disabled when in a community lot. Note that any items you buy will not be saved when you
leave the lot. So, we suggest selling them before you leave to get your resources back.

boolProp allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation [truefalse] allows users to rotate any object in 45 degree increments instead of the 90 degree increments used for most objects.
And by the way, you must use the "," and "." keys to rotate at 45-degrees

boolProp petActionCancel [truefalse] - makes pet actions cancellable NOTE: default = false 0
and yes, you can have pet Hyenas in the game

boolprop controlPets [truefalse] - makes pets controllable, just like normal human sims
NOTE: default = false 0 and yes, you can have pet Hyenas in the game

gameVersion Outputs the version of the Game.
Example Output:
The Sims Castaway Stories vSimsCS.
[ReleaseSRT Configuration ]

aging [onoff] - Turns aging on or off for all Sims

autoPatch [-on-off] enable or disable checking for available patches via content browser

bugJarTimeDecay [onoff] Toggles if bugs in a jar can live forever or not such as when you catch fireflies at night or butterflies in the day

clear Clear the console window

exit Close/Hide the cheat console window Escape works also

hide Close/Hide the cheat console window Escape works also

expand Expands or contracts the output portion of the cheat console. The Tilde key, , has the same effect.

help [wildcard] [-all] Logs this help output.

h [wildcard] [-all] Logs this help output.

kaChing Increase family resources by 1,000

motherLode Increase family resources by 50,000

vsync [onoff] Enables/disables vertical sync - can improve performance, but will sometimes cause visual artifacts if off

history [Unknown Effect]

debug [Unknown Effect]

[Many More] [purge if else elseif endif set] There are many alias/scripting related commands, but we do not believe they will help you cheat.

1. First be aware, and this is very important:

These Cheat Codes will only work in Story Mode aka "Shipwrecked and Single",
if the Story has been completed naturally meaning not with an unlocker.
They always work in Freeplay Mode aka "Wanmami Island".

The Cheat Console window will not even open when Story Mode is running.

2. Start the game.

3. Open the game Cheat Console:
Hit Ctrl-Shift-C hold Ctrl & Shift, then press C.

A CONSOLE window should open with a cursor.

4. Enter your codes.


You may type PART of a command such as the first few letters and then hit
the TAB key to fill in the best matching command ala 4DOS/4NT woot woot.
Also, the Up/Down arrow keys cycle through previous commands.

The Codes only work when a lot is loaded, and not in the Neighborhood Screen.

Info for "boolProp" settings.

boolProp is short for Boolean Property. Boolean is a mathematical term to
mean a value that is either True or False On or Off. For those settings,
you can use 3 different ways to enable/disable them:

0 = False = Off
1 = True = On

5. Trouble? Take Note:

Every place that you see brackets [] above, means that you must pass 1 or
more parameters to the code. It should be self-explanitory, but just incase
still you don't get it:

aging [onoff] - Turns aging on or off

This means that you must run either "aging on" or "aging off".

6. Type "exit" / "hide" or hit the ESCAPE key to leave the console.
