The Sims 4 scenarios can be cheated
The scenarios had a mixed response from players. Scenarios so far have mimicked player-created challenges like Rags To Riches. For players who want more robust gameplay, the scenarios don’t do much to improve their experience.
Other players, however, say they appreciate the more structured approach, especially when it comes to keeping track of what can and cannot be done with specific challenges.
Regardless of their preference, many Sims 4 players noted the lack of recognition of the players who created the challenges, which obviously served as inspiration for these new scenarios.
And while sometimes the game will judge you for cheating, like when adding a scared mood for your Sims, scenarios are painfully easy to cheat in The Sims 4, with no real consequences. And the consequences are exactly what many players expect from their gameplay.

With little difference and somewhat disappointing feedback (Sims reward points are neither here nor there and can also be cheated), it’s not engaging gameplay.
However, the FAQ included in the official blog post announcing the Too Many Toddlers storyline is interesting. It’s unclear where these questions have been frequently asked, but the “can I play it for free” leaves a slightly awkward feeling that kits may one day also include scenarios, especially with the new “delivery” system. which will come to the game in the future. update. Yeah.
