The Sims 4 StrangerVille Cheats List – Military Career Promotions, Virus Removal

We're taking a look at what cheats you can use when playing The Sims 4 StrangerVille expansion.

Our The Sims 4 StrangerVille Cheats List Guide will walk you through a full list of console commands that will help you complete some of the more tedious tasks or just get you to the fun stuff quicker!

StrangerVille is the newest expansion for The Sims 4. This is a bit of a wacky one, and revolves around you finding evidence and trying to figure out how to stop whatever is making the sim characters turn wacky!

How-to Enable Cheats in The Sims 4

Enabling cheats in The Sims 4 is relatively easy. Just open up the game and load up your sims. Press and hold Control + Shift + C on your keyboard. This will bring up a white box at the top left part of your screen. This opens up what is referred to as a "console" in most games. You can now type cheats into it and press Enter to input the cheat.

If you want to enable cheats through clicking on things, you can type "testingcheats on" (without the quotes) to enable this ability. You can turn this off by inputting "testingcheats off" if you so desire. This gives you the ability to hold Shift and Left Click on a sim or any other object in the world to give you options like making your sim happy or disabling need decay. You can also Shift and Left Click places on the map to teleport a sim there.

The Sims 4 General Cheats List

Here's a list of cheats that will just help you within the game and aren't specifically related to the StrangerVille expansion. A cheat listed with a parenthesis means that you can switch between the options. If the cheat lists the letter "x" next to it, that means you'll need to input something there, usually a number.

Cheat Description
testingcheats (on|off) This enables the ability to Shift + Left Click on things for a variety of different conveniences depending on the object.
kaching Grants your family $1,000 Simoleans.
motherlode Grants your family $50,000 Simoleans.
money x Sets the amount of money your family has to X. This can also be used to remove money, because it SETS the amount and doesn't give it to your family like the other two commands.
freerealestate (on|off) Makes all real estate free so you can get whichever house you'd like.
fillmotive x Fills whichever motive you input as X. Here's all of the options: motive_bladder, motive_fun, motive_hunger, motive_social, motive_energy, and motive_hygiene.
fps on (on|off) This will display the current FPS you are receiving in-game. It can be useful for dialing in your computer for the best settings.
bb.moveobjects This command allows you to move objects anywhere you'd like, even behind other furniture or wherever! Great command for the creative builder.
bb.showhiddenobjects Opens up the ability to purchase all the objects in the game. Will even allow for some secret items that aren't obtainable in a standard fashion.
death.toggle (true|false) Enable or disable your sims ability to meet the Grim Reaper.
