Before we get to the meat of this article, let’s deal with the elephant in the room – getting cheats to work as they should.

Activate Cheats in Sims 4

To achieve expected results in the form of rivers of money, for example, you need to enable the cheat testing in your game. Doing that is quite simple.

After pressing the combination of keys/buttons we’ve mentioned earlier, a command window will pop up. You will use this window to enter all the cheats, but to get them to work correctly, you need to type in the testingcheats.on command.

This will enable the cheat mode and let you use all the tricks the game has to offer. And there are plenty of those.

Money, money, money!

Type in console:kaching or motherlode
Info:$1000 cash boost or $50000

While The Sims 4 is a game that allows you to relax and enjoy a simpler life, it is not free from real-world problems. Like bills, everyday expenses, mortgage, etc.

Dollars Money

Thankfully, with these two particular cheats, you won’t have to worry about your bank balance as you splurge on new furniture and appliances, fancy home décor, and more. While kaching gives your family a $1000 cash boost for smaller expenses, motherlode allows you to spend $50,000 on whatever you like. The cheats can be used interchangeably and multiple times in a row, so go ahead and knock yourself out on your way to virtual riches.

Jack-of-all-trades – skill cheats

Real estate bubble

Type in console:freerealestate on/off

Paying for things, especially such necessities as the roof over your head, is not a thing most people enjoy while playing The Sims 4. Just think about it – why should we put a monetary value on our safety? That’s ridiculous.

Unlimited expansion

Info:Removing building space restrictions

You’ve probably encountered this problem a million times while playing The Sims 4 – you have a perfect vision of your home, pool with waterslide included.

Nothing spices up the everyday routine like a bit of macabre. This particular cheat will make the life of your sim into a nightmare by turning them into ghosts. Getting the sim to reappear as a revenant is quite easy.

Ghosts in Sims 4

All you have to do is equip them with a trait responsible for turning them into a ghost, for example being electrocuted, or drowning, etc.

Choose the kind of demise you fancy the most and type in traits.equip_trait X, replacing x with a trait you want your ghost to possess. If you would like to bring your sim back to the land of the living, instead of “equip” type in “remove” – that will make them all better.
