Show Hidden Objects in Sims 4
The show hidden objects is one of the most popular cheats for The Sims 4. It allows you to access items and objects that you can’t normally use in the game. There are lots and lots of decorative items in the game stored “behind the scenes” that can help you create your perfect house. So, it’s always good to unlock them.
These hidden items are objects that the developers use to style the game. These include everything from toothbrushes to prison bars. Normally, you can’t build with these items and you can’t even see them in the build menu. However, with the show hidden objects cheat in Sims 4, you can use all of them.
Here’s what you need to know.
How to Show Hidden Objects in Sims 4 on a PC?
Since it’s the most popular platform, let’s start by explaining how you can show objects in Sims 4 while playing on a Windows PC.
To use any cheat in Sims 4, you first need to enable cheats. Luckily, enabling cheats is a very easy thing to do. And it goes like this.
Press SHIFT + CTRL + C to open up the command console box. There you’ll need to type testingcheats true and hit Enter.
Once cheats are enabled, you should add the cheat to show all hidden objects – bb.showhiddenobjects. This cheat will give you access to all the hidden items in Sims 4. You can find them all in the build mode. Just search for “debug” items and you’ll see them all.
You can also use bb.showliveeditobjects to unlock all building-based items or bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement to get all the object-based items in the game. I recommend using all 3 cheats in combination.
How to Show Hidden Objects in Sims 4 on a Mac?
Next, we have the Mac. To show the hidden objects in Sims 4 while playing the game on a Mac is actually very similar to the PC. There’s only one thing you need to change and that is the button with which you trigger the cheat box.
First, you’ll need to enable cheats, of course. To do this, press CMD + CTRL + C on your keyboard to open up the command console. From there, type testingcheats true in the bar and press Enter.
For the show hidden objects cheat, the actual line is again bb.showhiddenobjects. Once you’ve unlocked these items, you can find them all in the build mode too.
You can use testingcheats off or testingcheats false when you’re done using cheats.
How to Show Hidden Objects in Sims 4 on a PS4 & Xbox One?
Although you can probably guess how the process goes on an Xbox One or PS4, here’s how to show hidden objects on these consoles.
To enable the usage of cheats in Sims 4 on an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4, you need to press the 4 triggers on the back of your controller (R1, R2, L1, L2). This will open up the command console box. Then, you’ll manually need to type in testingcheats true on the virtual keyboard.
Once cheats are enabled, add the bb.showhiddenobjects to show all hidden items in Sims 4.
Again, you can also use bb.showliveeditobjects and bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement for all the building-based items and all the object-based items in Sims 4.
And that’s it!
As you can see, showing hidden objects in Sims 4 it’s pretty easy. You can easily remember the cheatline and use it whenever you want. Keep in mind that you’ll need to enable cheats before you use bb.showhiddenobjects.
Some of these hidden items are amazing and definitely worth the try. So, go and activate the cheat!
