Sometimes when we are playing The Sims 4, we really don’t want to wait for our sims to naturally gain their skills. We’d rather just use a series of skill cheats so they can max out the skill and move on to the next!

Each of the following cheats will let you choose what level of the skill you want your sim to have. In the cheat list we are going to have the number 10 (or 5 if it’s a minor skill) which is the cheat you would use to max out the skill. However, if you’d like to pick a specific level of the skill you can just replace the number 10 with whatever level you’d like.

How to Use Cheats

In order to use cheats you need to open up the cheat dialogue box. First you need to hit ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard and the dialogue box will pop up. However, most cheats won’t immediately work.

You can then type testingcheats true and hit enter that will allow all of the cheats to work. Then you can type any of the cheats into the box and they should work, but sometimes the game can be a bit glitchy. Also, before using a skill cheat make sure you’re currently controlling the sim that you’d like to increase skills of.
