The Mood Cheat for The Sims 4

Enabling Cheats

If you want to use the mood cheat for The Sims 4, you’re going to have to enable cheats in your game first. And if you’ve never done it before, or you’ve never played with cheats in TS4 in general, just follow these instructions. 

First off, open up the cheat box inside the game by pressing down SHIFT + CTRL + C on your keyboard. If you’re a Mac user, the combination for you would be COMMAND + CTRL + C. And if you’re a console gamer, pressing down the four triggers on your controller should do the trick.

Once this window is opened, you’ll need to type in “testingcheats true” in the bar and hit enter. You may receive a message stating that you’ll no longer earn trophies while using cheats. If you don’t care about this part, just ignore the message and continue by adding the mood cheats.
