This program allows you to assign hotkeys for any commands or cheat codes that you find yourself entering too often.
Upon execution this program will launch the Sims 3 for you, and set your F1 - F11 keys to act as hotkeys that will automatically enter your chosen commands into the games console.

How to install this program:
Extract anywhere you like.

How to configure this program:
Click the edit button or open the Commands.ini file in notepad, and replace any of the commands with any commands or cheat codes you would like to use.
The Commands.ini file comes with a few commands pre-entered just as an example to get you started.
A full list of commands can be found here.
A full list of cheat codes can be found here.

To change the path of your game exe that is launched on start up, Open the Commands.ini file in notepad, and replace the path variable with the path to the exe you want to have run.

How to use this program:
1. Run it. On first run you will be prompted to locate your Sims 3 game exe.
2. Wait for the Sims 3 to open.
3. During the game hit your F1 - F11 keys to have your chosen commands automatically entered for you.

1. Windows PC (Vista users may need to run as administrator)
2. The Sims 3
3. The Debug Console Command Enabler for some commands. (Which has been reported to be incompatible with the latest patch.)

Why you need this program:
I got really tired of hitting CTRL+SHIFT+C and testingcheatsenabled true every time I started the game.
I also found myself using the money, lifetimehappiness, moveobjects, and freerealestate commands quite often.

My time is valuable, and I am sure yours is as well.
If you find yourself using the same commands over and over like I do, this program will save you countless hours over the life of your game.

*Updated 6-30-09*
I have added an edit button to the program that will open the Commands.ini file, then reinitialize the program when that .ini file has closed.

I have also added a path variable to the commands.ini so you can change the path to where you have installed the game.

Now prompts for the location of your sims 3 exe the first time the program runs.

I have also added a minimize button.

Enabled keys F9 - F11

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
