Influencer Side-Hustle

One of the new part-time jobs or 'side-hustles' in High School Years is the Simfluencer. As the name suggests, this will have Sims making videos and reviews of their life, taking selfies, and influencing those around them.


These cheats will promote and demote them in their career:

Entrepreneur Skill

High School Years has added a new skill for Sims to work on: the Entrepreneur skill. This is gained from selling items like art, outfits, or even just going to work.


This skill cheat works on teens and adults and will raise the skill to your desired level from 1-5, depending on which number you put in:

  • stats.set_skill_level adultminor_entrepreneur [Number 1-5]

There's also this cheat, to get an extra boost on your career with The Knowledge trait:

  • traits.equip_trait trait_entrepreneur_theknowledge

After-School Activities

Sims after-school activities

Another new addition with the High School Years expansion pack is the after-school activities that Sims can join. These are not viewable, and work like jobs, so are rabbit holes where Sims will attend alone and return home afterward.

The three activities are Cheer, Football, and Chess Team. You can promote your Sims in each activity using these cheats, and get some benefits:

Sentiment Cheats

In High School Years, there are wants and fears back again, and some of these are linked to social standing and sentiments between Sims. These were added way back near the game's release, but there are a few new ones added in the high school pack.

You can use these cheats to modify relationships between Sims, and create Sentiments between them. You'll need to use this cheat, followed by the codes below:

  • modifyrelationship [Sim 1] [Sim 2] 100 sentimenttrack_

For example, let's say you want Sidney Price and Molly Prescott to be good friends. You could use the following:


  • modifyrelationship Sidney Price Molly Prescott 100 sentimenttrack_close_lt_twopeasinapod

This will form the 'Two Peas in a Pod' sentiment between them. Here are the other Sentiment cheats you can add to the end of the cheat:

With all the new changes coming to the base game, check out our guide on the best mods to improve gameplay to help iron out some of the issues. Also, here's what we know about the mysterious Sims 5!

When they’re not mucking around, creating hilariously broken potions or struggling to figure out puzzles, Skyrim players love a good battle with the province’s various enemies.

After all, how are you supposed to take your combat skills to the next level if you’re not battling the toughest bandits, draugr or dragons with your weaponry of choice on a regular basis?

That said, sometimes the blade, bow or blunt implement you’ve picked to deliver punishment to these fearsome foes doesn’t quite live up to expectation, which can be quite disappointing, especially if it’s a unique prize you were gifted by a Daedric prince.


Have you ever regretted acquiring a Daedric weapon?

This is the topic of a recent thread in the Skyrim subreddit, which began with a post from user GoBackToLeddit, who shared a screenshot of their last favourite item to come from the waters of Oblivion, captioning it: “Behold the Rueful Axe in all its... eh.... mediocrity.”

Some of their fellow players thought they were being too lenient in their assessment of the axe, with user Delphii42 declaring: “Mediocrity? That thing is straight up bad. Literally the slowest swing speed of any weapon in the game.” and petey_vonwho adding: “You will rue the day you took this stupid axe over the masque.”

A few animal-loving users pointed out that the idea of having to kill a dog to get the axe also acted to lower it in their estimations, with Camanot asking: “Why would (you) slay the doggo for the worst axe in the game?”

On the other hand, user riley_james05 was one of many to point out that the axe may have been designed to be bad on purpose, arguing: “I was of the impression that it was meant to make you rueful, killing a dog for the god of scamming, and your reward is bad nonetheless.”

Meanwhile, some players discussed the Daedric artefacts that they do actually find useful, with user ManyChickensSage nominating Dawnbreaker, chet_brosley opting for Spellbreaker and Evolving_Dore plumping for the meme-worthy Wabbajack.

Also receiving some love was the artefact you can acquire instead of the axe during Clavicus Vile’s quest, with GoBackToLeddit returning to say: “The Masque (of Clavicus Vile) is too good to pass up. It's the only Daedric artefact I actually use.”

Regardless of which Daedric artefacts you’ve desperately tried to sell to Belethor for a decent price, make sure to follow us for more updates on The Elder Scrolls 6 and the wacky world of Skyrim modding.
