How to use The Sims 4 cheats- Money, skills, Build:Buy, Occults, and more

The Sims 4 have plenty of cheats that you can use to change your gaming experience. From bestowing your Sims with motherlodes of money, changing relationships, improving skills, or enabling hidden objects to appear in the catalog. So many things to do.

Cheats in The Sims 4 give you more control over the simulation than you could do it otherwise. Every time a new pack releases, there are new cheats, too, that can be used to modify skills, careers, and other new features that get added.

Follow this guide to find all of the cheats listed from every pack in the game so far. We’ll regularly update the guide as new packs are released and new Sims 4 cheats get added.

How to enter cheats in The Sims 4

The Sims 4’s cheat console is the main method that Simmers can use. You can even download mods which enables cheats to be accessed by clicking on particular UI elements, using

The cheat console is the place where you need to enter all of the codes found in this guide, just press a few buttons and get it done easily. Depending upon your platform of choice, these are:

  • PC: CTRL, Shift, and C.
  • Mac: Command, Shift, and C.
  • Consoles: Hold down all four shoulder buttons.

If you’ve done this correctly, a white bar will appear in the top left corner of your screen where you can now enter your cheats.

After you’ve done it we’d suggest entering ‘testingcheats true‘ or ‘testingcheats on‘ (this is interchangeable) as some cheats require this to have been entered first to work correctly.
