Fabrication Skill Cheats – How To Unlock Equipment and Skip Skill Levels Fast!

What is fabrication skill in Sims 4?

Fabrication is one of the major skills in the game, introduced in The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle, perfect for crafty Sims who enjoy furniture and candle-making. The better they get at it, the more types of furniture they are able to fabricate. It’s a great skill to have if your Sims want to go eco-friendly and do their best to keep the eco-footprint as green as possible.

Being a major skill, it has 10 levels Sims have to master and each of those brings cool skill unlocks. Developing the skill takes time, so if you are in a rush to start fabricating quality items, fabrication skill cheats will be your best allies!

What are the benefits of using fabrication skill cheats?

Fabrication skill cheats make the learning process faster and easier. You can use a few types of codes, depending on how subtly you want to cheat. For instance, one code can save you time, while other codes can add just enough simoleons to household funds to purchase the expensive fabrication machines or get them in the right mood for learning. These are all versatile, so you can use them all or just use one. Now, onto the cheats!

Looking for a more efficient way to change eco-footprints in your area? Try this mod!

How to activate cheats in Sims 4?

Before you can start using fabrication skill cheats, it is essential to enable cheats first. Once your game is launched, these are the steps you need to take, depending on the type of device you are playing on:

  • If you are playing on a PC or Mac – press CTRL+SHIFT+C to open the dialogue box. Type testingcheats true and press Enter to confirm. You will immediately get a message below the dialogue bar that your cheats were successfully activated and you can proceed with typing any fabrication skill cheat!
  • If you are playing on a console (PlayStation or Xbox) – To open the dialogue box press all four triggers simultaneously, type the testingcheats true cheat, and confirm the action.

Now that you are all set, let’s see how you can get the most out of fabrication skill cheats!

How to use cheats to purchase fabrication equipment?

For an average Sim, fabrication machines are quite an investment. Fabricators cost $1,800, the Recycling machine costs $845 and Candle-Making stations are $550, which is a lot, especially if they don’t come from money. Luckily, cheats can always come to the rescue so that your Sim can afford all the skill-building essentials! There are a few cheats you can use:

  • rosebud – This will add 1,000 simoleons to your funds. Alternatively, use kaching for the same effect.
  • motherlode – This will add 50,000 simoleons to your funds. 
  • money x – It will add X amount of money to your funds, allowing you to control precisely the amount of simoleons you are adding.

Once they are all set and have the equipment needed to start making stuff, your Sim can start learning the skill. To help them improve it faster, you can type stats.set_skill_level AdultMajor_Fabrication #. Replace ”#” in this fabrication skill cheat with any number from 1-10, depending on how fast you want them to advance.

For instance, if you want them to reach level 7 using this fabrication skill cheat, simply type stats.set_skill_level AdultMajor_Fabrication 7, and they’ll immediately reach level 7 of fabrication skill, unlocking all that comes with reaching that level! Or, replace ”#” with number 10 and the skill will be maxed out in a heartbeat.

How to get your Sim in the right mood for learning fabrication skills?

Did you know that having a focused moodlet can help your Sim learn fabrication skills faster? Your Sim won’t always feel like learning, but you can always give them that extra focus and motivation by using cheats. To make them focus and boost skill gains use one of these cheats:

  • sims.add_buff e_buff_focused – adds 4h focused moodlet
  • sims.add_buff FocusedHigh – adds 12h focused moodlet

Get them focused and their learning progress will increase by 20%! This is a great cheat if you want to boost their skill gains slightly, but don’t want to use the fabrication skill cheat to make them skip levels. 

Bits and pieces cheat

As soon as your Sim starts learning the fabrication skill, you’ll notice that they need Bits and Pieces to craft and bring their DIY projects to fruition. These can be found around the town in garbage and dumpsters. However, if you prefer to keep your Sim’s hands clean, you can always use cheats! These are the fabrication skill cheats that will help you obtain bits and pieces:

  • To get 500 bits and pieces – SHIFT+CLICK on your Sim >Give Bucks> Give Bits and Give Pieces
  • To get 50 bits and pieces – SHIFT+CLICK on the Fabrication Machine > Give Bits and Pieces
