Hidden Features

The Sims 4 has some useful features that are never explained in the game. These aren’t cheats so you can actually use these features without ever going into the cheat console.

Debug Cheat Codes

These are cheat codes that the game’s testers use in searching for and replicating bugs or trying out new features. You’ll find they can come in really handy!

In order to enable these cheats, type testingcheats on in the Cheat Console. Now you can freely use these cheats by holding Shift and clicking on a Sim. You can disable debug cheats by typing testingcheats off in the Cheat Console.

The Sims 4 Debug Cheat Codes
Shift + click on Sim→ Cheat Need → Make HappyInstantly maxes out all motives and sets the Sim’s mood to Happy.
Shift + click on Sim > Cheat Need > Enable Need DecayEnable or disable Need Decay. Default is enabled, meaning the Sim’s needs gradually decrease over time.
Shift + click on Sim or object → Reset ObjectReset a Sim’s or an object’s position in the world. Convenient if you’re the type who likes to experiment with user-made items that can sometimes cause bugs.
Shift + click on Sim or object → Modify in CASCAS is the Create-a-Sim menu. This cheat lets you return to that screen where you can modify everything but their name and traits.
Shift + click on Sim → Add to FamilyAdd a Sim that isn’t part of your family into it.
Shift + click on object → Make Dirty/CleanMake the currently selected object dirty or clean.
Shift + click on object → Make headAttaches the currently selected object to your Sim’s head.
Shift + click on ground → Teleport SimTeleport a Sim to the location that you’ve chosen.

Enlarging and Shrinking Items

Did you know you can enlarge and shrink items? Enter Build Mode and pick up an item, then press the ] key to make it bigger. You can press the [ key to shrink the item, but keep in mind that items cannot be smaller than their original size. The ability to enlarge items is great for when you’re designing a house and want to adjust the size of mirrors, windows, or doors. Keep in mind, messing with the size of objects can make the game go a little crazy!
