Add any cheats you find for Sims 2 and expansions here. Please keep this thread free from other comments so it will be easier to read through to find the cheat you want. If the cheat is one that can be listed without a long explanation, I will post it here in the first post and remove your post giving you credit for the find.
For all of you that just can't live without those cheats (me included), you can find a list of the cheats at Snooty Sims

moveObjects on/off: removes footprint limitation for all object placement in Buy Mode and Build Mode. Removes limitations placed on hand tool for when objects are in use, or are normally non-movable objects. Is known to cause issues with game elements, routing, hidden object generation and manipulation, etc. Note that using this cheat allows you to delete objects that normally cannot be deleted, such as Sims, the mailbox, and the garbage can. If you delete these objects, there is no way to get them back, so be careful!
aging -on/off: prevents Sims from aging. This can disrupt the carefully tuned gameplay balance, and will prevent little Johnny from ever growing up, so treat this cheat with care as well.
autoPatch -on/off: This cheat lets you re-enable notifications when there is a game update available for The Sims 2. Just turn Autopatch on and go to the Custom Content Browser (the little snowflake button on the UCP in the neighborhood). If there's an update available you'll be asked whether you want to download it.

This is great for placing coffee tables & rugs closer to sofas & to center pictures & things on a wall...I use it all the time. But u have to be careful because some objects won't work outside of the grid & u should really set it back to "true" once u have moved your object/objects. Go HERE to see a great pic example by Snooty Sims of how to use this.
