4. The Sims 4 Skill Cheats

While it’s good for our Sims to build up their skills the natural way, sometimes we just can’t help giving them a little boost. The following cheats allow you to max out your Sim’s skill level in particular areas (as shown in bold).

Most skill cheats follow a basic syntax (although there are some variations): stats.set_skill_level (skillname) (level from 1-10 if it’s a major skill; level from 1-5 if it’s a minor skill).

For example, if you want to max out your Sim’s charisma, you can enter stats.set_skill_level Major_Charisma 10. Or if you don’t want your Sim to completely master the skill, you can change the number 10 to a lower value (1-9).
