But what are the best cheats in The Sims 4? And how to do you activate them? Here’s a closer look at everything you need to know.
The best cheats in 'The Sims 4.'
There’s no shortage of cheats in The Sims 4. Some only have a minor impact on your gameplay, while others can provide you access to features that are otherwise restricted (such as the chance to ignore placement rules while building). Whatever you’re looking to achieve, one of the best Sims 4 cheat codes below should be able to help.

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.
