Sims 4 Cheats Activation: How to activate the Cheat Console
Before you can use Sims 4 Cheats, you must first open the cheat console of your gaming platform. Most of the Sims 4 Cheats have to be unlocked by entering “testingcheats true” (or “testingcheats on” for consoles). Enter the desired cheat in the cheat row and confirm with ENTER. Close the Cheat Console by pressing the same key combination you used to open it.
Sets the friendship bar of the chosen sim and animal to minimum level.
Sims 4 Cheats: Motives / Needs
For all Sims 4 Cheats on Sim Needs “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (console) must be enabled. If you click on your Sim with Shift + Left Mouse Button, you will also get the options to make your Sim happy or to enable/disable the Need Dacay.

Sim Traits Cheats
Cheats for Sim Traits
Sims can only have a total of three traits at the same time – like when you create a Sim in “Create-A-Sim” mode. If you want to change the existing traits of your active Sim, first remove existing traits. Replace the word “equip” with “remove” for the corresponding cheat. Example: With “traits.equip_trait clumsy” you give your Sim the trait “Clumsy”, with “traits.remove_trait trait_clumsy” you remove it again.
As in Create-A-Sim mode, it is not possible to assign conflicting personality traits simultaneously. For example, “Lazy” and “Active” are mutually exclusive, as are “Cheerful” and “Gloomy” and so on!
Cheats for all Sim Traits
Cats and Dogs
Child of the Ocean
Cats and Dogs
Traits from the Rewards Store
The traits from the Rewards Store are usually purchased in exchange for Reward Points. These are obtained by fulfilling Aspirations or Whims of your Sims and completing Holidays (Seasons). Cheating is quicker, of course: Simply enter the desired amount of Reward Points in the “X” of the “sims.give_satisfaction_points X” cheat after you have enabled “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (console).
No more Whims displayed in your Sims 4 game? Enable “Show Whims” in the Gameplay options.

Cheats to Traits caused by Aspiration Groups
If you choose an Aspiration for your Sim, they will receive the bonus trait that matches the Aspiration Group until the Aspiration is fulfilled and the respective Aspiration Reward Trait (see below) appears. Without Sims 4 Cheats, it is not possible to actively use multiple Aspiration Group Traits on your Sim.
Essence of Flavor
Bonus Traits due to completed Aspirations
In general, your Sims can accumulate as many rewards in-game by fulfilling Aspirations as you like. Especially traits like “Long Living”, “Laid Back” or ” Handy” make it easier for you to progress in careers or other Aspirations.
Cheats to all Bonus Traits due to completed Aspirations
When it comes to Skills, the game differentiates between main Skills, which you increase to Skill Level 10, and secondary Skills, which you increase to Skill Level 5. The only exception is the Skill “Vampire Lore” from the Game Pack “Vampires”, which you can even increase to Level 15! In our Cheats List, you’ll find Cheats that will give you the maximum level of the Skill you want – if it’s a lower Skill Level, just change the number to the desired value.
To use Skill Cheats, “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (consoles) must be enabled.
Your Sims learn most Skills by interacting with an object or performing a specific activity. You can see your progress on Skills you have learned in the Skills Tab at the bottom right of the screen. However, you can only see how well your Sims master hidden Skills when you use them!
In order to save you many hours of playing time while you are up-grading careers, Cheats are a convenient alternative. In our Sims 4 Cheats List we distinguish between the Classic Careers where your Sim leaves home to start work and returns after work, Active Careers, Part-Time and Freelance Careers as well as Careers for children and teenagers.
To use skill cheats, “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (consoles) must be enabled.
General Career Cheats
Add a career to your active sim (replace X with the desired career).
Active sim gets promoted in career (replace X with the desired career).
Active sim gets demoted in career (replace X with the desired career).
Your active Sim quits the career (replace X with the desired career).
Classic Careers (Rabbithole Careers)
To take a new job, your Sims can either click on “Start a Career” in the Career tab at the bottom right of the screen, click on “Search Job” in the “Work” section of your phone, or click on “Search Job” in the “Career” selection menu of any computer. Then select the desired Career in the selection menu. You will also see the two Career Branches of each Career.
Can’t you manage to get your Sims into life-threatening situations? With the Cheats from this List you can turn your Sims directly into Ghosts! They get a color matching the Death Type and cause environmental effects: For example, drowned Sims leave puddles of water wherever they move.
Children can only die of drowning, hunger, fire (Sims 4), in the sauna (Spa Day) and by Pufferfish-Nigiri (City Living).
This will give you the ID of the animal you want. Enter this into the cheat below.
traits.equip_trait Ghost_OldAge AnimalID

Make the Grim Reaper part of your household
To make the Grim Reaper a playable Sim and thus part of a household, create a two-person household and open the Cheat Console with CTRL + Shift + C.
