With cheats you can influence the course of the game: Needs can be lowered and raised, the household budget can be increased and relationships can be improved or worsened. In addition, stuck Sims can be reset, and objects can be enlarged and reduced in size. For nicer photos and movies you can hide the overhead information of the Sims.Here we list all of them The Sims 4 Cheats on and how you can activate and deactivate them:
Here you can find your own articles about The Sims 4 testing cheats and The Sims 4 pro cheats. Or are you looking for the cheats to the Sims predecessor: The Sims 3 Cheats.
Overview of all The Sims 4 cheats
Summary of all The Sims 4 cheats with activation and deactivation, as well as function. This listing will continue with future The Sims 4 expansions ( sort and filter table ):
Open cheat console and enter cheats in The Sims 4
Cheats are short code snippets that unlock numerous features in The Sims 4. They are entered via the cheat console. You open them by simultaneously typing on your keyboard CTRL + Shift + C If you press the key, compare the picture (left click to enlarge). Top left in the game you enter your cheat and then confirm with Enter.
The escape key can be used to close the cheat console.
The Sims 4 cheat bb.showhiddenobjects replaces the cheat buydebug
The very popular cheat buydebug from The Sims 3 is replaced in The Sims 4 by the new cheat bb.showhiddenobjects . It was added with patch 1.0.732.20 from 1.10.Brought to the base game in 2014 and makes hidden objects in the build and buy catalog visible. Unlocked are among others:
- Radios with preset station for community properties
- all collectibles
- all carpenter objects
- all clay sculptures
- all books
- cooking accessories, muffins, drinks
Objects can be found via the search mask with the word Debug. But they can also be found via the object filter Contents under Hidden (enlarge with left click):
alt="Debug objects in The Sims 4 search" width="150" height="92" /> Filter debug objects in The Sims 4 alt="Filter debug objects in The Sims 4" width="123" height="150" /> Filter debug objects in The Sims 4
All unlocked objects can be used for your own plots, photos and movies. But they are not saved when dropping the plot in the library and sharing it via the gallery.
The Sims 4 Cheat FreeRealEstate
The name of the cheat is composed of for free (engl. free) Property (engl. real estate). The cheat allows to move into a house for free without burdening the budget of the selected household. With this cheat families with low assets can buy expensive houses or keep a high starting capital despite buying houses.
In The Sims 4 is new that the amount of the weekly bills depends to a large extent on the residential area. If you use the cheat FreeRealEstate to move into the big mansion of an upscale neighborhood, your household may have problems paying the bills afterwards.
The Sims 4 Cheat Headlineeffects
The name of the cheat means Overhead (engl. headline) Effects (engl. effects). With this cheat you can show (on) or hide (off) all ads above the heads of your Sims. Especially for photos and movies it is useful to hide this overhead information for nicer shots. When actively playing, however, the display provides valuable information and should be left on.
Unlike in the predecessor The Sims 3, with the cheat no more plumbobs (green diament) hidden above the sims heads! Since The Sims 4 Patch 1.0.797.20 from 21.10.in 2014 plumbobs will also be sent out, although this has not been mentioned in patch notes yet.
The HideHeadlines on now prevents the information about the plant quality with the skill gardening.
The Sims 4 Cheat HoverEffects
The cheat HoverEffects was implemented with the patch from 9.9.2014 brought in The Sims 4. It allows you to turn on and off the white border for objects and Sims that are hovered over with the mouse.
If you want to do without the white border permanently, you can set this in Origin. To do this, switch to the My Games window in Origin. Here you right-click the The Sims 4 cover and select the option Game Properties. In the console window that opens, enter the code -nohovereffects:
If you want to use the white frame again later in the game, you can enter the code -hovereffects here.
The Sims 4 MoveObjects on/off are now called bb.moveobjects
Shortly after the release, the very popular cheat MoveObjects On (MOO) from The Sims 3 was available in the form of a mod. But it was not without danger. With The Sims 4 Patch 18.104.22.1680 from 16.12.2014 the MoveObjects was now officially brought back into the game! The new cheatcode is bb.moveobjects. After the input, objects can be placed very close to each other and even inside each other! If you want to deactivate the cheat, you can do so via bb.moveobjects off.
Sims, however, unlike in The Sims 3 can not be lifted and moved even with active MoveObjects. Photo and film makers must continue to wait for a solution in this regard.
Another disadvantage of the new cheat is that properties edited with it need special attention when splitting: If properties created with the MOO are loaded without activating the cheat, objects placed inside each other can disappear. This is especially true if the plot is downloaded and built directly in the Edit Worlds mode. There are two ways to ensure the preservation of these objects:
- The bb.moveobjects is activated when downloading and building the plot.
- To place the plot first switch to the build mode of a plot and from there place the creation from the library or directly from the gallery.
In order for the plot to be placed correctly, builders should use when sharing basic pieces necessarily with indicate whether the MoveObjects was used!
The MoveObjects was now paired with a possibility to move any object in its height. Any object that can be lifted with the mouse can be made to float! While an object hangs on the mouse pointer, it can be displayed via the Key 9 be raised. About the Key 0 (zero) it can also be lowered again. The object does not have to be attached to a wall, but can be placed as desired. MOO must be active for this.
The height shift allows to place objects apparently on surfaces that actually do not want to be placed there, z.B. large objects can be placed on tables.
The two numbers 0 and 9 overlap with calling saved camera positions. EA is aware of this problem and is working on a solution
About MOO, Enlarge option (Shift plus ‘) and Key 9 can now be used to build bush and flower landscapes, idiosyncratic sculptures, and ultimate closet walls! Who knows what other ideas the worldwide Sims players will come up with using this cheat combination!
The Sims 4 Cheat ResetSim
The name of the cheat ResetSim is composed of reset (engl. reset) and refers to the sim that is to be reset. Resetting is always useful when Sims no longer react correctly to commands or get stuck in foundations or in the air for example.
When entering the command ResetSim is supplemented with the first name and last name of the Sim, z.B. ResetSim Jonas Schafer .
All members of the household and later also playable pets, as well as non-played world inhabitants and NPCs can be reset with the cheat. To reset a Sim, enter the cheat plus the first name and last name of the affected Sim into the cheat console, z.B. ResetSim ordinary user.
The Sims 4 Cheat TestingCheats
The TestingCheats live up to their nickname all-rounder cheat and come up with numerous functions. Using the TestingCheats needs can be filled, sims and objects can be reset and foreign sims can be quickly added to the household.
Here we give you an overview of the functionality of the Testingcheat: Sims 4 Cheat TestingCheats – Complete list of all options.
Enlarge and reduce objects via cheats
On the German keyboard, objects hanging on the mouse pointer can be enlarged by holding down the shift key and pressing b. Enlarged objects can be reduced to their original size by holding down the Shift key and pressing the ‘ to the right of b.
If already once placed objects are grabbed again for resizing with the mouse, the resizing will only be visible when the mouse is moved.
Turn off tutorial in The Sims 4
Who starts with The Sims 4 is constantly stopped by tutorial texts in the game flow. If you don’t want to see the tutorial anymore, you can turn it off in the original client. The game may not run.
InOrigin switch to the window My games. Here you right-click the The Sims 4 cover and select the option Game Properties. In the console window that opens, enter the code –no_tutorial:
Bring additional cheats with mods in The Sims 4
At this point we will add useful mods with cheat functions over time. Starting off:
, see below
requires Set Age Cheat – Set Sims and Neighbors to Any Age! from TwistedMexi
allows to assign any age level to any sim
possible attributes: child, teen, young_adult, adult, or elder
tm.setage – makes the active sim an adult
tm.setage child – makes the active sim a child
tm.setage elder Mortimer Goth – makes the neighbor Mortimer Goth senior
Here you can read how to use the .package files in The Sims 4 install and get an overview of interesting The Sims 4 Mods.
Cheats missing from The Sims 3
Numerous cheats were not transferred from The Sims 3 to The Sims 4. The most important currently missing cheats we summarize here:
- Cheat BuyDebug
The debug purchase catalog no longer exists. Content locked in game but free to play is grayed out within the build and buy catalog. These can be unlocked by mod BuildBuyMode Unlocker.
Numerous not freely available content can since the patch 1.0.732.20 per cheat bb.showhiddenobjects can be unlocked in build and buy mode.
- Cheat ConstrainFloorElevation
There are no terrain tools in The Sims 4 base game. Raising and lowering the terrain is therefore not possible and the corresponding cheat is also missing.
- Cheat FadeObjects (available as mod No Fade Sims and Objects)
Filmmakers and photographers will miss this cheat, because it will stop the automatic hiding z.B. from trees prevented.
- Cheat SlowMotionViz
Slow motion functions are not available at the moment.
- Cheat MovieMakercheats
Targeted execution of very specific animations does not exist at the moment.

Can you please explain again the height adjustable cheat. bbmoveobject is activated and counters etc. I can place (inside each other) beautifully, but I can’t move items up and down freely with 9 and 0 to place deco, z.B. On a shelf. Thanks for your help.
Just got sims 4 (startset only )
Is there a chat to change the size of the sims? Eg. Make an adult only n bit bigger than a child? Or there is a setting for it in CAS?
Addition to the cheat "object.setashead" (or with allskillcheat + pressed shiftkey and click on object): the objects set as head will shrink and are still usable. How much they shrink depends on the initial size of the object. All objects can still be used and animations are also played z.b. Reducing the size of the climbing frame causes the sim kids to climb in the air as if it were the original object. The reduced objects are also transferred to the Sims 4 gallery.
I have moved your comment here. You are looking for the cheat bb.enablefreebuild.
I would like to rebuild the hospital, but unfortunately I can’t find the cheat I need.
I find it actually quite good only partly unfavorable and the furniture is meager.
Can someone help me?
The cheat bb works for me.moveobjects not. I can’t put things inside each other or close to each other. What is the reason? Do you have to enter another cheat before? I have also tried to enter true before testingcheats. Nothing happens. BIn grad really at the despair -.-
Edit: In the description directly.
bb.moveobjects photo / movie / build/buy mode
allows to place furniture and decorations close together, but sims can’t be lifted and moved with it like in sims 3.
You should use "bb.moveobjects" maybe note that you can also use the "0" and "9" keys to position the objects up and down
"The cheat HoverEffects was removed with the patch from 9.9.Brought into The Sims 4 in 2014. It allows you to turn on and off the white border for objects and Sims that are passed over with dre mouse.
If you want to do without the white border permanently, you can set it in Origin. For this you switch in Origin to the window My Games. Here you right click the The Sims 4 cover and select the game properties option. In the console window that opens, enter the code -nohovereffects"
Does this also work with other cheats? So that you can turn off or turn on permanently?
I wanted to note that the new cheats from An die Arbeit are missing such as.B:
bb.enablefreebuild ( Enables building on all sites even hidden and career specific ones)
Thanks for your message. I have added both cheats.
Since the comments are deactivated in the Proficheats, I write it in here. You could also add the cheat for the new skill Herbalism – Stats.set_skill_level Major_Herbalism
For here I also have one: sims.hard_reset The active sim cancels all actions
Then I answer here times still the same as on Facebook: I do not know a direct cheat. Maybe there is a mod especially for this. What works in any case, is the leveling up of the career via the pro cheats. For this you can get a dummy sim in the household via the cheat sims.Spawn… use it to level the careers and that will unlock the outfits for all other family members too. Here you can find the Proficheats.
Hello is there a cheat that can unlock the career clothes?
Dear loh, I don’t want to be annoying, but at the bottom of the text the magnification cheat is also upside down.
I really hope that they get it right soon with the MoveObjects, because it is also very important to me. You just have so much more possibilities when building and decorating.
Yes, obviously it’s not that easy this time, that it works error-free, that’s why I don’t get the mod into the game, but rather wait patiently (well rather impatiently ) until they get that right at EA.
tomorrow you with-sims-junkies ;DDD
@Ioh: you, I needed the cheat,
because I can’t log in to ModeTheSims anymore,
forgot password, and now iwie problems hab,
to get a new one…
it fails because of the birthday entry,
which he iwie always does not want… am already almost exploded at it (after hours of unsuccessful attempts)..
do i have to pay attention to anything (vllt date in english) or
am i doing something wrong. the site is not in german..
or is there a trick. o.o
I would be urgently interested in the
relationship mod, that’s why i do this trouble at all *laughs*
also the "buydebug" would be quite interesting because of the books..
would be cool of you, if you tell me this regarding
could help *.*
oh yes: I would still have the pond/stone-cheat in the
repartoire if needed (again usable without mod)
and Ioh: I had to enter the cheat only once,
copied everything new after the update into the order and
he remained activated..
so nix with every time enter, testingcheats was enough,
for whatever reason^^
wish you a fluffy and successful week,
vtg and sul sul,
In the beginning I also had the impression that the cheat does not work. But now it always works perfectly. Both testingcheats and CaS.FullEditMode must be entered before entering CaS. I myself go over the testingcheats with shift-leftclick on Sims in the CaS. Maybe that makes a difference.
The death-toggle remains strange to me, but I’ve included it now. It toggles between mortality and immortality. But also here I have the impression that it is only valid between two loading screens.
Thank you for your hint to the reversed zoom in/out, it is corrected!
The problems you described with zooming in we already have too. As it looks, objects can be enlarged and then have a relatively large tolerance, where they can be placed in relation to other objects. but the other objects don’t have this tolerance and give way as soon as they are recalculated on reloading.
The problem is not with the enlargement itself, but with the MoveObjects on cheat, which is not included in the game yet. EA had already received feedback from the creators at the Creator’s Camp, that the cheat is very important to them. I read that they are already working on the cheat, but that it doesn’t work flawlessly yet and that they are still working on it.
With the mod for the cheat you can see that it seems superficially simple to implement the function, but that the devil is also here in the details. Since the cheat is already in work, we can hope that the enlarged objects will not cause any more trouble.
Dear loh, I almost thought so, that’s why I added that I haven’t tested it yet either.
Oh yes, something I noticed only now, you have the enlargement "Cheat" the two swapped … with ‘ makes it larger, with bs becomes smaller again.
Also, I wanted to share with you my annoyance that I currently have when building or decorating a house. For me, when I put enlarged plants, save and later restart the game, the things that were immediately next to them have been moved to the family inventory, and if it affects doors, they are gone. I had the same problem when I changed the wall color, the things are gone immediately.
Yourgent like the cheat does not go Cas.FullEditMode
I have TestingCHeats true enter and then Cas.FullEditMode and in Cas the same but nothing passirt can you help me
Two new cheats bb.showhiddenobjects and cas.clockspeed [0-10] from today’s patch 1.0.732.20 added.
Thank you for your hint, we had deliberately not included the cheat. The function is already covered by the mod BuildBuyMode Unlocker. We find this easier than having to use the cheat console every time. Because for the cheat you have to copy a download into the game just like you do for the permanent unlock.
Thank you for your hint. The cheat is already in our table, but it is not visible yet. We have not tested it yet and we only write what works for us so we can also write how it works.
I have a new cheat for you guys: Death.toggle / prevents the active sim from dying.
but haven’t tested it yet.
I am very happy about the new buydebug cheat!
I have discovered wat fine for you,
and that is *drum roll buddo*:
I have the cheat for cheat BuyDebug (available as mod BuildBuyMode Unlocker) ;DDD
it reads: tm.unlockall
please enter it before using the build/buy mode,
otherwise it does not work
naaa, now I want to hear jubelsturme here and
don’t you dare, then trident-alarm and so *fggg*
wish you a fluffy and successful week,
vtg and sulsul, shaitana.
Thanks for your valuable hints! that all mods are still in their infancy, they are indeed to be enjoyed with VOrsicht. According to statements from the Creators Camp, EA itself is also working on MoveObjects, but was not yet able to put it into play due to bug issues. We have added appropriate warnings to the mod.
With the Moveobjects mod I let still caution. It is reported that when dividing houses all objects pushed over each other were deleted. Worse is the following: I have the mod in, move over each other. If I no longer want the mod and take out, the whole house is no longer on the map for me and when I want to play it crashes the game. Good that I always have multiple saves.
