It should be noted that in some cases, and in many cases for consoles, you will need to enter the cheat ‘testingcheats true’ in order to use other tricks. It’s worth going in first, just in case. However, if you want to disable this feature, just enter ‘false testingcheats’ in the command console.

‘Test true cheat’ also unlocks some cheats without filling up the command console. For example, clicking on a Sim will allow you to do things like change their needs or respond to their motivations. On PS4 this can be done by holding O and pressing X, while on Xbox One it can be done by holding A and pressing B.

Additionally, enabling cheats on console will make Xbox Achievements and PlayStation Trophies obsolete – but a pop-up will appear on screen notifying you of this.

A while ago, The Sims 4 received an overhaul which brought a new set of cheats for players to use.

By entering the following cheats into the cheat console (with ‘testingcheats true’ enabled)you will be able to access the debugging elements:

  • bb.showhiddenobjects
  • bb.showliveeditobjects

This should allow you to access the debugging items. In other words, you should be able to access items that are usually locked.

To access these items, type “debug” in the search bar in build mode. You’ll then see a bunch of items that you usually can’t access, mostly public lot items that you can’t access on your house lot – maybe you want a public toilet in your bathroom? We are not here to judge.

This cheat is also particularly useful for skills such as fishing, as you can simply place a fishing board in your backyard and practice your casting in the grass.

Once you have activated ‘testingcheats true’, its probably a good idea to also activate Create-A-Sim abilities by entering ‘cas.fulleditmode’ into the cheat console. This will allow you to alter objects and Sims in the world during livetime rather than having to be playing as the desired Sim and editing them from the CAS menu.

To bring up the following options on PC, hold Shift and click on the Sim or object. 

If you’re playing on PS4, press and hold O, then press X, then click on the object or Sim. For Xbox One, press and hold B, then press A, followed by clicking on the Sim or object.

Clicking on a Sim will allow them to be modified. You can do pretty much anything except for changing their name and inherited traits, such as resetting them, adding them to a different family, and fully replenishing their Needs bars.

Clicking on an object will allow it to be rest, while dirty items can be made clean – or vice versa, in case you want your Sims to live in a pigsty you evil overlord, you.

Finally, clicking on the mailbox brings up the option to reset it and clicking on the ground allows you to teleport your Sim to that area.
