The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle Cheats

Every single time we get a new pack for The Sims 4 there are a ton of new cheats that are created for us to create the exact world we want without ever having to put in the effort.

The cheats for The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle include cheats to change the eco footprint, cheats to increase your influence points, and of course career and trait cheats.

Cheat Codes to Change Eco Footprint

The biggest aspect of The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle is the environmental changes that occur as you make certain decisions in your game. There are 3 levels of eco footprints which are green, neutral, or industrial.

These cheats can be used at any time, and in any neighbourhood so that you can change your current eco footprint. It is the same cheat code for all 3 but each type of eco footprint will have a different number at the end.

Important Note: To use this cheat code, make sure that cheats are turned on by opening up the cheat dialogue box with ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard and use testingcheats true so that you can turn on cheats.
