Sim Traits Cheats

Cheats for Sim Traits

Sims can only have a total of three traits at the same time – like when you create a Sim in “Create-A-Sim” mode. If you want to change the existing traits of your active Sim, first remove existing traits. Replace the word “equip” with “remove” for the corresponding cheat. Example: With “traits.equip_trait clumsy” you give your Sim the trait “Clumsy”, with “traits.remove_trait trait_clumsy” you remove it again.

  • As in Create-A-Sim mode, it is not possible to assign conflicting personality traits simultaneously. For example, “Lazy” and “Active” are mutually exclusive, as are “Cheerful” and “Gloomy” and so on!

Cheats for all Sim Traits

Traits from the Rewards Store

The traits from the Rewards Store are usually purchased in exchange for Reward Points. These are obtained by fulfilling Aspirations or Whims of your Sims and completing Holidays (Seasons). Cheating is quicker, of course: Simply enter the desired amount of Reward Points in the “X” of the “sims.give_satisfaction_points X” cheat after you have enabled “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (console).

  • No more Whims displayed in your Sims 4 game? Enable “Show Whims” in the Gameplay options.

Rewards Store Trait Cheats

Cheats to Traits caused by Aspiration Groups

If you choose an Aspiration for your Sim, they will receive the bonus trait that matches the Aspiration Group until the Aspiration is fulfilled and the respective Aspiration Reward Trait (see below) appears. Without Sims 4 Cheats, it is not possible to actively use multiple Aspiration Group Traits on your Sim.

Bonus Traits due to completed Aspirations

In general, your Sims can accumulate as many rewards in-game by fulfilling Aspirations as you like. Especially traits like “Long Living”, “Laid Back” or ” Handy” make it easier for you to progress in careers or other Aspirations.

Sims 4 Cheats: Skills

When it comes to Skills, the game differentiates between main Skills, which you increase to Skill Level 10, and secondary Skills, which you increase to Skill Level 5. The only exception is the Skill “Vampire Lore” from the Game Pack “Vampires”, which you can even increase to Level 15! In our Cheats List, you’ll find Cheats that will give you the maximum level of the Skill you want – if it’s a lower Skill Level, just change the number to the desired value.

  • To use Skill Cheats, “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (consoles) must be enabled.

Adult Skills

Your Sims learn most Skills by interacting with an object or performing a specific activity. You can see your progress on Skills you have learned in the Skills Tab at the bottom right of the screen. However, you can only see how well your Sims master hidden Skills when you use them!

Career Cheats

In order to save you many hours of playing time while you are up-grading careers, Cheats are a convenient alternative. In our Sims 4 Cheats List we distinguish between the Classic Careers where your Sim leaves home to start work and returns after work, Active Careers, Part-Time and Freelance Careers as well as Careers for children and teenagers.

  • To use skill cheats, “testingcheats true” (PC/MAC) or “testingcheats on” (consoles) must be enabled.

General Career Cheats

careers.add_career XAdd a career to your active sim (replace X with the desired career).
careers.promote XActive sim gets promoted in career (replace X with the desired career).
careers.demote XActive sim gets demoted in career (replace X with the desired career).
careers.remove_career XYour active Sim quits the career (replace X with the desired career).

Classic Careers (Rabbithole Careers)

To take a new job, your Sims can either click on “Start a Career” in the Career tab at the bottom right of the screen, click on “Search Job” in the “Work” section of your phone, or click on “Search Job” in the “Career” selection menu of any computer. Then select the desired Career in the selection menu. You will also see the two Career Branches of each Career.

Turning Sims into Ghosts in Sims 4


Can’t you manage to get your Sims into life-threatening situations? With the Cheats from this List you can turn your Sims directly into Ghosts! They get a color matching the Death Type and cause environmental effects: For example, drowned Sims leave puddles of water wherever they move.

  • Children can only die of drowning, hunger, fire (Sims 4), in the sauna (Spa Day) and by Pufferfish-Nigiri (City Living).

Cheats for all Death Types / Ghosts

  • If you want to bring a ghost Sim back to life, simply replace the word “equip” with “remove”. For example, the Cheat traits.remove_trait fire will bring a Sim that died by fire back to life.

Lifestyle Cheats


There are two ways to get up to three Lifestyle traits for your Sim – or get rid of them, too: Either you use one of the cheats in our list directly to get the Lifestyle you want for your Sim or you remove an active Lifestyle by replacing the word “equip” with “remove” in the cheat to this Lifestyle.

Or you activate your cheat console, type the cheat “testingcheats true” and Shift-Leftclick your sim (or hover over them and press X+O or A+B depending on your console type) afterwards. Use the “Cheat Sim Info” menu to add or remove a Lifestyle.

Get useful free Batuu items


Use “testingcheats true” in the cheat console and Shift+Left-Click on your sim. Select “Batuu Cheats” and “Give Batuu Items” to recieve the following items in your sims inventory: 5 Kyber Crystals, 5 Lightsaber Hilts, 30 Scrap Metal, 10 Dataspikes, 2 Fake ID Cards, First Order Uniform, Resistance Disguide, DL-44 Blaster Pistol, F-11D Blaster Rifle, Jedi Holocron, Comlink, Sith Holocron, Thermal Detonator, TD2.3 Electrobinoculars, Hondo’s Package, First Order Log Files, Information Fragment, Dok-Ondar’s Lost Antiquities, First Order Access Codes, Compiled Batuu Report

Change your Sim’s Faction Reputation


Use “testingcheats true” in the cheat console and Shift+Left-Click on your sim. Select “Batuu Cheats” and “Batuu Reputation”. This allows to change directly every faction’s reputation rank from – 5 up to +5.

Change Faction World State


Use “testingcheats true” in the cheat console and Shift+Left-Click on your sim. Select “Batuu Cheats” and “Faction World States”. This cheat changes the primary faction of a neighbourhood as long as a sim is in that faction. This will be shown in different flags and faction-related townie composition.

Add Rey and Kylo Ren to your Household (and have fun with them!)


Use “testingcheats true” in the cheat console and Shift + Left-Click on Rey and/or Kylo Ren. Select the “Add to family” option to add them to your active sim’s household. After this you’ll be able to romance them like any other sim. This cheat works with every sim on Batuu, too.

If you want to get some more steam into your journey to Batuu, you’ll be able to WooHoo with Rey in a Resistance tent, but there’s no such possibility in the First Order District. Kylo Ren looses his stylish dark side outfit if he leaves this neighbourhood, so you’ll have to cheat a bit to make a WooHoo option possible: Open the cheat console once more and use “bb.enablefreebuild” to freely access build mode on Batuu. Then add a WooHoo possibility like a bush, shower, pile of leaves, closet or anything else to the District. Now you’re ready to have a dark side romance with Kylo!

Cheats for Vampire Ranks and Vampire Powers


Once your Sim has become a Vampire, he will gain experience points by using Vampire Powers, bloodsucking and dueling other Vampires to increase his rank within Vampire Society and unlock new Vampire Skills. This is very time consuming for higher ranks – but the following Cheats will shorten this process significantly!

Vampire Rank Cheats


To cheat Vampire Powers for a Sim, the Sim must be at least a “Fledgling”. Pay attention to the interaction between the different Vampire Powers when cheating. As with Sim traits, certain Vampire Powers are mutually exclusive and cannot be used simultaneously.

  • For Vampire Powers Cheats you need the ID of the Sim you want to use. You can get this ID with the cheat “sims.get_sim_id_by_name first name last name”. Note the corresponding sequence of numbers for all following cheat codes and insert it at the value “SimID”.
