The Sims 4: Handiness Skill Cheat

There is nothing better IRL or in The Sims 4 than having a toilet that’s upgraded with a bidet or a self-cleaning stove and that’s only possible if your sims have the handiness skill. This is a skill that allows your sims to do woodworking, repair broken objects and even add amazing upgrades to appliances.

If you really want to get those good upgrades you need to have a high level of the handiness skill and sometimes that’s only possible by using the sims 4 handiness skill cheat so you can just pop past the hard effort and start fixing everything!

How to Enable Cheats

One annoying thing is that you need to enable cheats before being able to just go ahead and use most of the cheats in the game, it’s a simple step that doesn’t take much effort but a lot of the time we just forget to make it happen.

To do this you first want to open up the cheat dialogue box by hitting the following depending on where you play:

  • PC: Ctrl + Shift + C
  • Mac: Command + Shift + C
  • Console: All Four Triggers

Once the cheat box pops open at the top of your screen you’ll want to type in testingcheats true and hit enter and the game will tell you that your cheats are now enabled. You’re now free to use any of your favourite cheat codes for the game.
