Sims 4 cheats: how to enable cheats for PC

Words by Ollie Toms and Dave Irwin

To enable The Sims 4 cheats on PC, simply open up a Sims 4 game, and pick the right option below depending on your hardware:

  • Windows users: hit CTRL + SHIFT + C.
  • Mac users: hit CMD + SHIFT + C.

This will open up the Sims 4 console, which you can use to enter any of the cheats below. Once you’ve finished inputting your desired cheat codes, simply hit the same combination of keys again to close the console.

Money cheats

If you just want a quick injection of cash, you can just enter the simpler two codes for 1000 and 50,000 Simoleons respectively.

However, if you want to specify exactly how much money you want to add or remove, there are two other cheats that give you that option.

But in order to enable these cheats, you first have to open up the console and type:

testingcheats true

Then hit Enter and close the console. Now you can access all of the cheats in The Sims 4. Hurray! Just open the console and enter one of these cheats:

  • Adds 1000 Simoleons: Rosebud or Kaching
  • Adds 50,000 Simoleons: motherlode
  • Add an amount of Simoleons: sims.modify_funds +[amount]
  • Subtract an amount of Simoleons: sims.modify_funds -[amount]

Careers and aspiration cheats
