How to Enable Cheats in The Sims 4
The Sims 4 isn’t your typical game when it comes to cheats. While cheat codes have become less common in modern gaming, The Sims 4 still embraces this nostalgic feature. Enabling cheats requires a bit of know-how. Follow these steps to unlock their power:
- Press Ctrl + Shift + C (Command + Shift + C on Mac) to open the cheat console.
- Type “testingcheats on” exactly as written to enable cheats.
- Now you can enter various cheat codes. Remember to type them correctly for them to work. To disable cheats, type “testingcheats off” in the same box.
On PS4 and Xbox One:
- Press all shoulder and trigger buttons simultaneously.
- On PS4 or PS5, press L1, R1, L2, R2. On Xbox One or Xbox Series X, press LB, RB, LT, RT.
- The cheat console will appear. Follow the same steps as above to enable cheats by typing “testingcheats on”.
