Sims 4 cheats

The Sims 4 cheats include every cheat code and life hack available. Each Sims 4 expansion and pack comes with its own set of cheat codes. Those cheats are usually tied to the jobs, deaths, and traits unique to that expansion or group. For example, with the new family-oriented Growing Together pack, you can give your newly feature-rich infants personality traits.

We’ve organized the page so you can easily access tables for all the abilities, careers, and traits you’ll need to level up your Sim. You can use Ctrl+F to search the website for the name of the expansion or pack for which you wish to find cheats.

How to turn cheats on in Sims 4

To enable Sims 4 cheats, access the cheat console by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C while in the game. Enter the desired cheat codes into the text field that appears and hit enter.

You must type “testing cheats true” into the cheat menu to use cheats marked “shift click.” Testing cheats can unlock new Shift-Click menu choices on Sims, items, or the ground.

You’ll be able to move Sims between families, fill up their wants and happiness meters, dirty or clean up objects, and teleport Sims anywhere you want with testing Cheats enabled, among other things.

  • trait_hsexit_graduate_honors
  • trait_hsexit_graduate_valedictorian

Sims 4 relationship cheats

Sims 4 cheats

Relationships.create_friends_for_sim will make a new Sim on the lot who is already friends with yours for an even easier icebreaker.

If you require more precise friendship (and romance) management, use the following to add and subtract from two Sims’ relationships:

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

Sims 4 trait cheats

During the Create-A-Sim process, you can select traits for your Sims that control parts of their preferences, habits, and how they interact with other Sims. Using the Shift+Click cheats above to alter them in the CAS (Create-A-Sim) menu is one technique to trick your Sims into possessing specific traits, especially those in the base game.

Here is a list of traits from game packs and expansions that you may want to offer your Sims if you want more fine control or if you’re wanting to add and remove additional properties. A Sim’s Lifestyles, which represent their habits as you play them, can also be added and removed as traits.

You can use the following cheats after using the base cheat “testingCheats true” to add and remove all of the cheats on this list with their respective Trait code.
