Another great cheat to use is stats.set_skill_level [skill code] [#]. This changes the corresponding skill to the entered skill level. For example, using “stats.set_skill_level Cooking 10” will increase your cooking level to 10. This works with most skills in the game – just make sure you’re entering a valid number at the end of the string. Entering 11, for example, would return an error in the above example, as you can’t increase your cooking skill beyond 10.

How to activate cheats in 'The Sims 4'

Before you can start using cheats in The Sims 4, you’ll have to first pull up the Cheat Console. This can be done by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C on your keyboard. If you're playing on Xbox or PlayStation, hold down both triggers and bumpers for a few seconds. With the Cheat Console open, type in a cheat listed above and press Enter. If you’ve entered a valid code, it’ll be activated immediately.
