Now, hold SHIFT and click your letterbox. This will provide you with these options:

  • Make All Happy

In Ground View mode, hold SHIFT and click a spot and your Sim will teleport to it.

You can also click and drag your Sims' need bars to full. SHIFT-click the mailbox and select Make Needs Static to keep the max level until you leave the game.

SHIFT-Click the mailbox again and it will say Make Needs Static) This must be repeated each time you re-enter the game. But you only have to do it once, as it will work for all of the Sims in the household.
