The Promotion Cheat for The Sims 4

Enabling Cheats

If you’ve never used cheats in The Sims 4 before, know that the first thing you’ll need to take care of is enabling cheats. Luckily for you, the actual process is very easy, and you can do it in a couple of steps.

  • Step 1: Open up the cheat box by using SHIFT + CTRL + C on your keyboard (CMD on Mac).
  • Step 2: Type “testingcheats true” in the dialogue bar.
  • Step 3: Press Enter.

Once you’ve done this, you may continue by adding the promotion cheats. If for some reason you weren’t able to complete these steps, check out this video. It helps a ton!

Promotion Cheats

As we mentioned earlier, the promotion cheat for The Sims 4 consists of “careers.promote”. This is its raw version because it needs an actual career to be complete. For example, if you were trying to get a promotion in the painter career, then the precise cheat line would be careers.promote painter. Add careers in the same way and repeat the cheat to get as many promotions as you want.
