Here's how to enable cheats in The Sims 4!

How to enable cheats in The Sims 4

There are certain cheats that require an activation code for them to work. Type "testingCheats true" in the box to activate these specific cheats. Once the cheat code is activated, the box will show "Cheats are enabled".

What this does is allow you to Shift+Click on Sims, objects, pets, and more for additional commands or actions. For example, after you enter "testingCheats true" you can click on your Sims and there will be more options to click. One of them is "Modify in CAS" which takes you to Create-A-Sim where you can change facial features, body shape, and others which are things that you can't normally change.

You can also use this cheat to find a different career and progress your career to your desired level - on top of so many more things! One of the most popular cheats, especially for build mode lovers, is the "bb.moveobjects" and "bb.showhiddenobjects" to freely position items and get debug items which are not available in the typical build mode.
