The BEST Sims 4 Cheat Codes

Money Cheat Codes

The first set of cheats, and probably the most popular, are money cheat codes. These are going to allow you to give your sims more money, or take it all away if you’re feeling spicy.

Below you’ll see a chart with all of the money cheat codes you need with the first three being super simple where you just type a single word into the cheat box and are given a specific amount of money.

Cheat EffectCheat Code
Kaching (Gives 1,000)kaching
Rosebud (Gives 1,000)rosebud
Motherlode (Gives 50,000)motherlode
Family Funds Money X

The Family Funds cheat code is a bit more complicated than the rest of them because you can use it to both give your sims more money, or take money away. This one works by giving your sims the exact amount of money you want by changing the X at the end to whatever sum you wish to have your in your sim’s household funds.

For example, if you want to have a total of 50,000 in your sim’s family funds you’ll type in Money 50,000 and hit enter.

Free Real Estate

There is always a moment where you are trying to move your sim into a house that they just can’t afford and you have to go back, use money cheats and then go back and buy the house. However, there is a better way!

Instead of adding money to your sim’s household funds you can use the free real estate cheat and just purchase whatever house you want for your sims. You’ll want to have your sims on the moving menu and open the cheat box and then type in the following cheat and hit enter.

  • FreeRealEstate On

Once you hit enter the game will let you know that free real estate is enabled and you can purchase any house you want.

Auto Pay Bills

When you’re playing The Sims 4 you’ll often get annoyed by having to pay your bills. They get so expensive and can sometimes even come as a surprise when you have no money. Instead of using money cheats to deal with this you also have the option to use the following bills cheats.

Cheat EffectCheat Code
Immediately Pays Your Billsautopay_bills
Turns off Your Billsautopay_bills true
Turns on Your Billsautopay_bills false

The first cheat is going to just immediately pay your bills, problem solved. Then, you have the option to turn off your sim’s bills so you no longer have to pay for them. If you want to start paying them again you can turn them back on too!

Sims Skill Cheat Codes

No matter what you’re doing in The Sims 4 you’re going to need to gain skills. You needs skills for work, you need skills to earn money, and you even need to get more of the cooking skill to not burn down your house.

If you don’t want to work to get yourself those skills naturally you have the option to go ahead and use different cheats for skills to make sure that your sims can get that promotion or do better in life. There are so many that I can’t list them all here but all of them start with:

  • stats.set_skill_level

After that there are tons of different variations which you can find in the article linked below for each individual skill.

Career Cheats

Since we’re talking about a life simulation game here, your sim’s careers are going to be a huge part of their lives. They’ll want to get promotions and earn more money throughout their entire life but there are ways to cheat this too!

There are three important career cheats for you to know, the first two are going to promote or demote your sims in their careers to give them a different level and let them earn more money.

You can even retire your elder sims from their careers with the retire cheat where they’ll get to live the rest of their life in peace.

Cheat EffectCheat Code
Give Your Sim a Promotioncareers.promote (name of career)
Give Your Sim a Demotioncareers.demote (name of career)
Retire Your Sim from a Jobcareers.retire (name of career)

Since there are so many careers in The Sims 4 we can’t list all of the individual cheats here, but you can find an article below with each individual career cheat listed for you to play through.

Satisfaction Points Cheats

If you want to get all sorts of good rewards you’ll definitely want to gain some satisfaction points. You can gain these through completing whims, completing aspiration stages and completing successful holidays or scenarios.

These points are also able to cheated where you can just get thousands at once so you can purchase things like Never Weary or get a Potion of Youth so you can stay young forever.

To give your sims as many satisfaction points as you’d like you’ll want to use the following cheat:

  • sims.give_satisfaction_points X

With this you’ll fill the X with whatever number of points you’d like to have. For example, you’d use sims.give_satisfaction_points 10,000 to get 10,000 points to spend.

Relationship Cheat Codes

One of the most popular sims 4 cheat codes is always going to be relationship cheats because we want our sims to have friends and lovers that actually like them. These are really easy cheat codes to use, but very hard cheat codes to remember.

The way these work is that you’ll want to have one sim’s name in the first part, and another in the second. So, for Bob and Eliza it would look like:

  • ModifyRelationship Bob Pancakes Eliza Pancakes 100 LTR_Friendship_Main

This would give your sims 100 friendship points added to their total, meaning if they just met they’ll end up with a full friendship bar. You also have the option to decrease your sim’s relationships by adding a negative number. You can make these numbers whatever you’d like from -100 to 100.
