How to Enable Cheats in The Sims 4

Before you can start using cheats, you’ll first need to make sure they are enabled for your game. Otherwise, typing them in the cheat menu will have no effect. All you need to do is:

  1. To open the cheat window, Press Ctrl + Shift + C on PC or LB + RB + LT + RT on the console simultaneously.
  2. Type testingcheats true in the cheat window.
  3. Press Enter.

After doing this, you should see a prompt stating, “Cheats are enabled.” Now you’re in the clear to start entering other cheats. However, make sure you enable cheats again every time you restart your game. Here are some cheats you’ll want to try once you do:

All Relationship Cheats in The Sims 4

Relationships can take a lot of time to foster in The Sims, which is why these cheats are so useful. You can increase the friendship and love levels of two Sims or even automatically introduce them to each other to skip past the boring bits. (You’ll need to insert the name of the sims wherever you see “(Sim’s Name),” without brackets for the cheat to work properly).

ModifyRelationship (Sim’s Name) (Sim’s Name) 100 LTR_Friendship_MainIncreases two sims’ friendship.
ModifyRelationship (Sims’s Name) (Sim’s Name) -100 LTR_Friendship_MainDecreases two sims’ friendship.
Relationship ModifyRelationship (Sim’s Name) (Sim’s Name) 100 LTR_Romance_MainIncreases two sims’ love relationship.

relationships.create_friends_for_simStarts a new relationship with a sim.

All Aspiration Cheats in The Sims 4

Aspirations are meant to be life goals for your sims, giving them a focus on different tasks to complete as they grow. As they complete these goals, they earn Aspiration points they can use to redeem very beneficial rewards. If you need some Aspiration points right away or a boost in progress, you can use these cheats:

aspirations.complete_current_milestoneCompletes current milestone tasks, rewarding Aspiration Points for them
sims.add_buff PointsIncreases progression in Aspiration milestones and adds 100 Aspiration Points
sims.give_satisfaction_points X
(fill in X with wanted amount)
Gives you Satisfaction/Aspiration Points

All Skill Cheats in The Sims 4

Along with boosting your relationships and Aspiration progress, you can also get a head start for each of your sims skills. It can take time to earn a talent in the game, and these cheats will allow you to bypass some of that wait time and have your sims excel faster.

Adult and Teen Skill Cheats

The max level for these skills is 10. Fill in the X after the cheat code to the desired level, and then press enter.
