This will unlock previously inaccessible lots such as the Hospital and University Dorms. You can also use this cheat in Sixam and other Hidden Worlds such as Sylvan Glade and Forgotten Grotto.

You can also change lot characteristics and names with this cheat, useful if you want to renovate areas to suit your playstyle.

The Sims 4 Tool Mod will allow you to change apartment windows and place objects off the grid, for more information read about the Tool Mod here.
