The game includes pre-built housing and amenities but gives the player the choice to make their own. Here are some Sims 4 building cheats to make building easier.

How To Use Cheats in The Sims 4

Players need to enable cheats before they are able to use the building cheats. This process is simple but it is different depending on your hardware. Windows PC players enable cheats by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + C. Mac players use the CMD + SHIFT + C button combination. Playstation Consoles hold down the L1, L2, R1, and R2 buttons. Xbox Consoles hold down the LB, LT, RB, and RT Buttons. This button combination will open the cheat console for the player to type in cheat codes. The first code that must be typed is “testingcheats on”. If you did this correctly, the console log will provide the message “Cheats are enabled.”
