Sometimes when you are working with different cheat codes in The Sims 4 you may need to find your sim’s SIM ID, this is a few numbers that represent your specific sim and will essentially tell the game that you are working with that specific sim.
How to Find a Sim ID
To find your sim’s ID you are first going to need to open the cheat box by hitting ctrl + shift + c and typing in the following cheat sims.get_sim_id_by_name (First Name) (Last Name) and hitting enter.
For example, if you were trying to find the sim ID for Bob Pancakes, the cheat would be, sims.get_sim_id_by_name Bob Pancakes and then you would hit enter.
It is pretty annoying to have to do an extra step to be able to use a specific cheat, but thankfully its really easy to find your sim’s sim ID if you know how!
