Press Enter, then type “cas.fulleditmode” (again without the quotes) and press Enter again.
Hit ESC to close the cheat console, and once you’ve done that you’ll be able to Shift+Click any sim to edit anything about them in Create A Sim as if you were making them for the first time. first time.
So go ahead and Shift + click on them and hit “Edit in CAS” and you can change their traits (as well as anything else you would normally change when you first create them).
With this, you can even change their age, appearance, gender, voice, etc. Be careful not to change anything you don’t want!
Change Your Sims’ Traits With a Re-Processing Potion
The Reprocessing Potion can be purchased from the Reward Shop for 5,000 Satisfaction Points. Satisfaction Points can either be earned by cheating: sims.give_satisfaction_points # (replace the # with the number of points you want your Sim to have and hit enter), or doing quirks with your Sim!
Whims must be enabled due to an update that disabled them by default. To do this, go to “Options” > “Game” > “Show quirks”. You will now be able to perform Quirks to do daily activities that your Sims want you to do, and completing them will earn you Satisfaction Points.
After accumulating 5,000 Satisfaction Points, click the Aspiration tab in the upper right corner and click the Present icon. You will now be able to select “Rehabilitation Potion” from the “Potions” category and change your Sims’ traits in The Sims 4.
Congratulations! Your old boring simulation will be brand new with a new personality. It’s perfect if you want to change them up as they age, to play out life-changing experiences. Especially as new packs come out, you’ll want to try out these new traits!
