There’s some merit to buying a starter house, getting a practical career and working at it until you can afford your dream home or swimming pool. That’s one way to play The Sims 4, but after a while you want to experiment with luxury building, go on swanky vacations and buy that hookah bar you’ve always wanted. This is where cheat codes come in. The Sims 4 is the fourth instalment of EA Games‘ The Sims life simulation game. What’s great about it is its realistic and high quality building simulation, new and exciting traits and emotions for your Sim to express and the wide array of expansion packs you can add onto your Simsational adventure! But let’s face it, one of the best parts of the Sims 4, are the cheats, which really allow you to create the life of your dreams.

We’ve included cheats relating to money, building, family, career, relationship, Sim traits and more. This article includes cheats that go with every expansion pack such as Sims 4 Get Together, Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat, Sims 4 City Living, Sims 4 Get Famous, Sims 4 Cats and Dogs, Sims 4 Seasons, Sims 4 Get to Work, Sims 4 Jungle Adventure etc. Basically, the codes compiled here are the most updated and relevant cheats you’ll find, it is your “Ultimate” guide.

It’s important to remember that while cheats can drastically improve your game, they can also cause problems with the gameplay. To make sure no problem arises, be sure to save your game before and after applying a cheat.

How to apply cheats:

Apply cheats in the sims 4 by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + C on a PC or CMD + SHIFT + C on a Mac. This brings up the command console in the upper left hand corner. For Playstation 4 and Xbox One, hold all four shoulder buttons at the same time. Some cheats require a testing cheat to be typed in. Once the command console is open, type in  “AutomationTestingCheats true.” After you’ve typed that in and hit ENTER, applying cheats are now possible. Whenever your Sim leaves the neighbourhood or is reset, you must re-enter “AutomationTestingCheats true” code otherwise a majority of the cheats will not work.

Now, once you’ve entered the testing cheat code, simply enter your cheat code, hit ENTER, and there you go! To close the command console, all you have to do is hit CTRL + SHIFT + C (or another variation depending on your operating system) and the screen will be clear. Move objects wherever you please, switch Sims between families, have unlimited happiness and wellness, teleport to different locations, or simply stock up on a huge supply of free cash. Sims 4 cheats open up whole new possibilities for your Sims and make for a new different kind of gameplay. The folks over at EA Games even encourage the use of cheats! So go ahead and cheat to your heart’s content. You may have also have a look at Clare’s guide on how to use sims 4 cheats.
