The Sims 4 Cheats

Anastasios Antoniadis

This post contains all the cheats for The Sims 4. This complete list of Sims 4 cheat console commands can be used to modify skills, aspirations, and motives, get cash, change the interface, or build anything. Sims 4 was launched on September 2, 2014 for PC, macOS, PS4, Xbox One and later on Xbox One.

Remember that cheats in “The Sims 2” require advanced debugging and testing cheats to be enabled. (Read below for how to do this).

How to enable the Sims 4 cheat console

So, to start using cheats, you first need to bring up the cheat console. Here are the instructions to do it on every device:

  • The Sims 4 PC cheat console activation: Hold down Ctrl and Shift, then press C.
  • The Sims 4 Mac cheat console activation: Hold down Command and Shift, then press C.
  • The Sims 4 PS4 cheat console activation: Hold down all four shoulder buttons at once.
  • The Sims 4 Xbox One cheat console activation: Hold down all four shoulder buttons at once.

A console box will pop up at the top of your screen to type all the available cheat code commands.

Premise: How to Activate Test Cheats for Debugging in Sims 4

The premise to be able to use the full list of the Sims 4 cheat commands is similar to what is required for the Sims 3 cheats.

Players can enable the full effects of the developer console (in essence all games featuring console cheat commands allow you to use the developer console and run commands that developers use for testing), which is a requirement for some cheat commands.

In this “The Sims” game you will need to bring up the cheat console and enter:

testingcheats true

This will enable extra cheats and the popular shift-click cheats, which allow you to shift-click on Sims, buildings, and items and get access to further cheat options based on the unit you selected. Obviously, you cannot shift-click on consoles, so you will have to press X+O on PS4 and A+B on Xbox one to trigger a shift-click.

Why are sims 4 cheats not working?

Here are a few reasons The Sims 4 cheat might not be working for you:

  • Most Sims 4 cheats require you to have enabled testing cheats. After loading the household, press CTRL + Shift + C to open the cheat console. Hit enter to type the cheat true and testingcheats true or testingcheats on to enable all testing cheats.
  • Make sure you are entering cheats the right way for your platform:
    • On PC and Mac, you must hold down CTRL+SHIFT+C
    • On PS4 and Xbox, you must hold down all four shoulder buttons at once
  • You may have used a cheat that has been removed from the game. Some automation cheats were removed with the release of the Seasons expansion pack. To re-enable them you can download TwistedMexi’s All cheats mod.
  • Sometimes, installed mods can cause problems with the game’s normal flow. You can temporarily move or disable a mod you have recently installed to check whether it’s interfering with cheats. Repairing the game may be an option if this doesn’t solve your problem. Open Origin and navigate to My Games Library. Right-click on The Sims 4 to select Repair
