The Sims 3 cheats I Complete list of cheat codes you need to know

We’re going a bit old-school here, but even though The Sims 4 has been out for ages and The Sims 5 is coming, The Sims 3 is still a must-play game for many.

And that’s probably not too surprising, as the option to start a new game over with a new set of characters may not appeal to everyone. So, at the very least, that makes The Sims 3 a game worth revisiting for many.

And just like the cheaters in The Sims 4, there are a few here in The Sims 3 too! If you want to know what the special codes are, we’ve got you covered below.

How to Use The Sims 3 Cheat Codes

First of all, there are different ways to play The Sims 3, so here’s how to access cheats for each one.

  • Enable The Sims 3 cheats on PC: Hold Ctrl and Shift, then press C
  • Enable The Sims 3 cheats on Mac: Hold down the Command and Shift keys, then press C
  • Enable The Sims 3 cheats on PS3: Hold down all four shoulder buttons at once
  • Enable The Sims 3 cheats on Xbox: Hold down all four shoulder buttons at once

Once done, you will be ready to enter the code of your choice!

Before we get to that, if you want to change things like friendships or traits, or if you want to teleport or change careers, then enter “testingcheatsenabled true” and you can edit all sorts of things by clicking on it.
