Learn All the Hidden Skills in The Sims 4!

If we didn’t know, there are a couple of hidden skills in The Sims 4 that are worth our time. Compared with the traditional skills, these are tied to activities that aren’t of too much significance to the standard gameplay. For example, Chess is such a skill. It could be practiced with other Sims and increased to the maximum level. Chess is also closely tied with the regular Logic skill, so we’ll need both of them to advance further.

Now, the Chess skill has 10 maximum levels that we can play through and unlock. Other hidden skills in The Sims 4 have different level caps and can be maxed out by various means. One of our favorite methods is to use cheats, though. The cheats to max out skills in The Sims 4 can be very helpful with the hidden skills, too, just because they make the job ten times easier. But, know that we can also use mods like Faster Skills and increase the rate at which our Sims will build their skills. The choice is ours! Now, let’s check out all the hidden skills in The Sims 4 and how many levels they have!

Apart from the base game, the different expansion and game packs for The Sims 4 have brought us more hidden skills. As we might expect, these will be closely connected with that expansion/game pack’s central theme or purpose. So, we will list all these skills in appropriate groups, just so they’ll be easier to track down.

The hidden skills in The Sims 4 can be tricky to find without external help. They don’t appear in the interface of regular skills, so it can be pretty hard to increase them. With this list, we hope we have enough precise info on these skills and how we can increase them.

    • Catrina, as far as we’re aware there’s no specific cheat to show hidden skill stats but there are a few things you can try:

      • Try the Show/Search Sim Info Mod by itasan2
      • If you use MCCC, you can try to navigate to MC Cheats>Cheat Sim Info>Change Statistic

      Hopefully this helps!
