sims 4 cheats

All the Sims cheats for every expansion, all in one convenient place.

Sims 4 cheats to improve your Sims’ lives now that the base game is free? There’s nothing more iconic than cheats and sims, and if you just need a little extra cash, a free home, or want to resurrect a family member who died before your time, cheats have got your back. Cheats allow you to ignore everyday problems like money or mortality and focus on confusion and fun.

This Sims 4 cheats guide contains codes for every expansion and packs released. Most of The Sims’ expansions and packs each have unique cheat groups for jobs, deaths, and features. With the latest High School Years expansion pack, you can grab all the cheats you want below to help you survive school or succeed in new side paths.
We’ve organized the page so it’s easy to find tables for all the skills, professions, and attributes you might need to maximize your Sim’s level. You can also use the Ctrl+F key on the page to add the nickname or package yourself. We want to find cheats for them in every section. We also have instructions on how to activate in-game cheats if you haven’t used them before or even if it’s been a while.

How To Activate Sims Cheats

To enable Sims 4 cheats, press Ctrl + Shift + C during gameplay to open the cheat console. Enter the cheat codes of your choice in the text field that opens and press enter.

If “shift-click” is flagged, you must first enter “testingCheats [true/false]” in the cheat menu. Test cheats allow you to unlock a new move and click menu options with sims, objects, or ground.

When testingcheats are active, you can move Sims between families, fulfill their needs and happiness, dirty or clean items, and teleport Sims wherever you want, among other things described below.

You can also use seasons.advance_season to go forward in time by just one season.

Sims 4 Relationship Cheats

If your Sim has the same problem making friends as I do in real life, the cheat console code relation.introduce_sim_to_all_others will instantly introduce your Sim to all their neighbors.

Icebreaker is even easier when relations.create_friends_for_sim spawns a new Sim into the plot that is already friends with you.
If you need better control over friendship (and romance), use the following to increase and decrease the relationship between two Sims:

modifyrelationship [YourSimFirstName] [YourSimLastName] [TargetSimFirstName] [TargetSimLastName] 100 LTR_Friendship_Main

Replacing “friendship” with “romance” changes the values ​​of romantic relationships. Positive values ​​increase links, while using negative values ​​(such as -100) decreases links.
