Learn All the Build Cheats for The Sims 4!

There are a couple of important cheats for the build mode in The Sims 4 that you should know. These cheats are really the essential components of building competent homes. They’re so helpful that most simmers can’t even imagine playing the game without them. If you’re a newer player, however, you may not know these tools. And that’s why we’re here – to teach you everything you need to know about the build cheats in The Sims 4!

Enabling Cheats

If you want to use the build cheats for The Sims 4, though, you’ll need to know how to enable cheats in your game first. We have an extending guide on testing cheats in The Sims 4, which also covers this topic. But, if you want to quickly learn how to do this process, then follow these simple instructions.

First, you’ll need to hold down the SHIFT + CTRL + C combination of keys on your keyboard. However, if you’re using a Mac computer, then the combination for you will be CMD + CTRL + C. And lastly, if you’re playing the game on a console, like PS4 or Xbox One, the four triggers on the back of the controller can cause the same effect.

Next, when the command console box pops up, you’ll need to type in this phrase “testingcheats true”. Once inserted, this cheatline will activate the cheat usage inside your Sims 4 game. After that, you can start adding any cheats you want, and you won’t have any problem making them work.

Build Mode Cheats in The Sims 4

Move Objects Cheat

The Move Objects cheat is perhaps the most popular cheat for The Sims 4. It’s undoubtedly one of the most versatile tools you have at your disposal, and you must take advantage of it.

So what does the Move Objects cheat do? Well, it allows you to move any object in the game anywhere you like. There are absolutely no limitations when it comes to placing an item once you have this cheat activated. You can move a table in between chairs, on top of another table, or in

Obviously, the Move Objects cheat allows us to create the perfect home. By having the ability to place stuff wherever we want, we can use the space that we have much more efficiently than in the base game. The greatest thing about this cheat, though, is that we can combine multiple objects and make an entirely unique piece of furniture, for example. Creative simmers know how to utilize this feature and create one-of-a-kind homes.

The cheatline for the Move Objects cheat is bb.moveobjects on

Show Hidden Objects Cheat

The Show Hidden Objects cheat is maybe as important as the Move Objects cheat. It allows us to shortcut to the end-game by allowing us to use all the items in the game. This means that you won’t have to buy each and every item individually in The Sims 4 (with or without a cheat). Instead, you can just insert the Show Hidden Objects cheat and have all the objects at your disposal.

Having more building options equals better homes, right? So, this cheat should be used regularly by any simmer when trying to build your perfect house. You simply need to insert bb.showhiddenobjects in your command console, and you’re all good. You’ll have the whole game open for you to enjoy!

Additional Building Tools

A couple of ery convienent tools while building are enlarging an item and rotation of objects. Normally, you only get a few item sizes from the build menu. But if you ress the “[“ and “]” buttons, you can increase or decrease the size of a given object to whatever you like. This is a fantastic feature that lets us complete any interior or exterior in The Sims 4.

And if you want to rotate an object to whichever degree you want, you’ll need to hold the ALT button. And while holding it, you’ll have the freedom to change the direction of your item without limitation. 


The build cheats for The Sims 4 aren’t a must for all simmers in the world. But, as you can see, they help tremendously. And in a way, they complete the build mode that already exists in the game. We are big advocates of these cheats and use them regularly in our own gameplay. And we also suggest you to give them a shot if you’ve never used them before.
