When it comes to building in The Sims 4, players can be very creative and distinct in their creations. But oftentimes we all find ourselves limited in some details. So, whenever you are struggling to place an object at just the right place, you need to use the MoveObjects Cheat.
This cheat allows you to move any particular thing wherever you want, to combine different pieces of furniture, and also to stack multiple items on top of each other. With that said, it is everything you need to create the perfect household for yourself!
How to Activate the MoveObjectsOn Cheat in The Sims 4
To use the MoveObject Cheat, you first need to hit the three magic keys in unison: CTRL + SHIFT + C. After the command console pops up at the top of the screen, type in bb.moveobjects on, press Enter, and then ESC to close the cheat box. Now you can move furniture freely and off-grid! This cheat works like a toggle, so if you want to turn it off afterwards, you’ll just need to write bb.moveobjects off into the console.
You might also need to activate the MoveObjectsOn cheat when downloading houses from the Gallery made by other Sims players. Most of them use this cheat regularly, so not including it before placing the lot might mess up or altogether remove some of the furniture. If you upload some of your creations while using the cheat, make sure to let other players know in the description.
What Can You Do with the MoveObjectsOn Cheat?
To completely take advantage of this cheat, we suggest combining it with the ALT key. This way, you can ignore the grid and move the item freely, without having it snap on the grid lines. Items can also be turned around in any direction of 360 degrees by pressing ALT while rotating. The uses of this combo are infinite, and we included some of them right here!
- Clutter multiple items on a two-tile desk or table, instead of the limit of two.
- Make wall decorations overlap and have it look like a wholly different object.
- Stack windows in a creative fashion to create an entirely new look.
- Put fountain sprinkles and fountain decoration inside pools.
- Mix and match different plants. You can layer them and design the perfect garden!
- Create your unique furniture by merging different items.
We suggest using MoveObjectsOn when placing decorations or furniture that your Sims can’t have any interactions with since some furniture might become unusable when placed with MoveObjectsOn. For example, you can place a kitchen stove on the pool, but your Sims will not be able to use it.
You might also notice the change of texture on the furniture when using this cheat. That happens mostly when two objects are stacked or overlapping, and unfortunately, it cannot be avoided. Sometimes changing the angle or slightly moving them apart resolves this problem.
Enlarge & Shrink Objects
With the MoveObjects cheat activated, you can resize objects as many times as you want! By pressing [, you can make an item look smaller, and by pressing ], you can make it bigger. Be wary, though, because some appliances might become unusable after changing their size.
Raise & Lower Objects
You can make furniture float midair or place it on shelves it wouldn’t naturally fit on! Press 9 to move objects up and 0 to move it back down. This might once again result in the furniture becoming unusable, so it’s best used with decorations and such.
The MoveObjectsOn cheat is a total necessity for everyone who wants to add a personal touch to each build or create a cozy atmosphere and add a warm vibe to any home. By cleverly combining the off-grid moving, resizing, and raising or lowering furniture, the possibilities in which you can place the items are limitless!
