15 Completely Destroy The Relationship Of Two Sims

via Simtimes.de

First on the list is completely destroying the relationship of two Sims. This hilarious cheat is best used on Sims that are blood-related, best friends or even in a relationship. Upon the activation of the cheat, watch both Sims quickly have a change of heart and act as if they’re sworn enemies. This cheat can be activated by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + C, all at the same time. Once the cheat console appears, input the keyword “relationship.destroy {yoursimID} {targetsimID}”

Each Sim has their own unique ID, so the game can easily identify which Sims you want to use the cheat on. If you don’t know the ID of your Sims, you can get it by inputting the keyword “sims.get_sim_id_by_name (first name) (last name).”

14 Instantly Kill Sims by Over Exhaustion, Electrocution Or Embarrassment

via Sims.wikia.com

Just like in real life, Sims can die from accidents, hunger and old age. But did you know that a Sim can also die from too much work, getting electrocuted and even embarrassment! Yes, they can also die for that reason and it can be triggered with the keyword “sims.add_buff buff_death_elderexhaustion_warning” for over exhaustion, keyword “sims.add_buff buff_death_electrocution_warning” for electrocution and keyword “sims.add_buff buff_mortified” for embarrassment as you control the Sim you want to use it on.

However, the keyword for over exhaustion can only be used on elders while the keyword electrocution will only work when the Sim repairs an electronic item after inputting the keyword. Of course, you can still do the classic death due to hunger that is triggered by using the keyword “sims.add_buff buff_motives_hunger_starving”

13 Force A Sim to Give Birth To Multiple Children

via forums.thesims.com

Giving birth to twins or triplets is a must-experience in The Sims 4. However, wouldn’t it be more fun if your Sims can give birth to quadruplets or more? Good thing there is also a cheat for this and you have the option to choose how many children your Sim will give birth to. Just input the keyword “pregnancy.force_offspring_count (simID) (count)” and add the number of children you want the Sim to give birth to.

Just make sure the number of children you choose does not exceed the maximum number of members allowed in one household or you will experience stability issues. Each household can only have a maximum of eight members, so the Sim can give birth to as many as seven kids when she’s alone in the household.

12 Make A Sim Into A Ghost

via sims-online.com

Aside from making a Sim into a vampire (which we'll cover later), you can also temporarily change them into a ghost. This can be triggered by using the keyword “sims.add_buff Ghostly” in the cheat console. And if you’re looking for a bit more fun, you can also make the ghost Sim appear to be pregnant from the first to third trimester, and even do a fake birth. Unfortunately, no babies will be born using this cheat.

To activate these cheats, input “sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester1”, “sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester2” and “Sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester3” to make the Sim pregnant from the first, second and third trimester, respectively. And to give the fake birth, input “sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_InLabor” in the cheat console. The best thing about this cheat is that it’s only temporary, so you can bring the Sim back to their original form anytime.

11 Raise Or Demote A Sim In Their Career

via gamespot.com

One of the things that makes a Sim very happy with their life is how successful they are in their careers. However, what would happen if they suddenly get demoted or lost their career in the game? That is what the cheat “careers.demote {NameOfCareer}” and “careers.remove_career {NameOfCareer}” can do to a Sim. The first one demotes them by one level while the other completely removes them from their work.

And after seeing your Sims get lonely and sad for not fulfilling their life goals, you can also instantly promote them or add a new career to your Sim. Just use the keyword “careers.promote {NameOfCareer}” to give them a promotion and “careers.add_career {NameOfCareer}” to add a career to the active Sim. This will quickly boost their happiness as if nothing bad ever happened.

10 Instantly Turn Your Sim Into A Grand Master Vampire

via carls-sims-4-guide.com

One of the craziest things you can do in Sims 4 is to turn your Sim into a vampire. However, it’s not really as easy as you think because players need to do a series of tasks before they can reach the grandmaster level. The maximum level allows the Sim to unlock secret skills and abilities for vampire Sims, so it's really worth trying.

It's a good thing there’s also a cheat for that and it's “stats.set_stat rankedStatistic_Occult_VampireXP 1486,” so you don’t need to do all the work to get there. And if you ever get bored, you can also instantly kill the vampire Sim through the power of the sun with a cheat. This can be done by selecting the Sim and using the keyword “traits.equip_trait Vampire_Sun”.

Upon using the cheat, the active Sim will automatically do anything that needs to be cleaned like doing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom, and just about anything that needs to be cleaned.

Then change the active Sim to the second Sim, the Jane Doe, and use the cheat keyword again. It is important to know that the cheat will only work if done on both Sims. If you want the Sims to be instant friends instead of romance, just change the word “Romance” to “Friendship” in the keyword.

Once you get the Get to Work expansion pack for your Sims 4 game, you can use cheats that will make your Sim sick for some hours. This includes coughing, sneezing, being dazed, and a lot more.

Improving the relationship of your Sim with other Sims is crucial for success in their careers. However, sometimes, the amount of work to do that is just too much, so you can just modify their relationship using a cheat for instant results. But unbeknownst to many, there is also a cheat that will instantly make them friends with all the Sims in the game, including their ex, enemies and even the dead! Aside from having exceptional social skills, this will also result in a Sim crying over a dead Sim they have never met.

If you’re up for a trick like this, you can try it by using the cheat keyword “relationships.introduce_sim_to_all_others.” As soon as you use it, you will see all your social relationship improve, whether they’re dead or alive.

via YouTube.com

After getting the Parenthood expansion, you can activate different cheats that will alter the behavior of a kid or teen. This includes making them clingy, picky, loud, mean, distant, and even very rebellious! Each trait is completely different, so it’s worth trying each of them just for the experience. One trait that’s worth trying is the rebellious one, as it really makes it hard for the parents to handle the kids

To try this cheat, you can use the keyword "traits.equip_trait ChildhoodPhase_Clingy" and just change the last word to "PickyEater_A", "Loud", "Rebellious", “Bear”, "MeanStreak", and "Distant" to try the other traits. However, the clingy and bear trait will not work for teens, while the distant trait doesn't work on children.

2 Add A Random Sim To The Household

via simsnetwork.com

Another crazy cheat you need to try is adding a random Sim into your household. It can be a vampire, alien or any Sim you like. And that’s not all, you can even assign them to be related to anyone in the household. This includes being a spouse, grandchild, son or daughter, brother or sister, parent, or even a grandparent! This means you can assign someone younger than your Sim to be their parent or grandparent, which would be a really funny scenario.

To activate this cheat, just use the keyword “relationship.add_bit {yoursimID} {targetsimID} {relationshipBit}.” The relationship keywords you can choose from include “romantic-Married," "family_husband_wife," “family_grandchild,“ “family_son_daughter,“ “family_brother_sister,“ “family_grandparent,“ and “family_parent.“

1 Increase The Chances Of Fire

via YouTube.com

Probably the craziest thing you can do in the game is to spawn fire to different Sims or things in the game. This includes making a Sim combust anytime and removing the default timeout after a recent fire incident so the fire just keeps happening. This means your Sim will spontaneously be on fire and can die if you don't have a shower nearby.

Another alternative is to randomly set fire to a spot close to your Sim that will not affect them or the objects near it. It's a way to see your Sim panic without risking their lives. To use the first cheat just use the keyword “sims.add_buff BurningLove” and “Sims.remove_buff BurningLove” to remove it. As for the second cheat, use the keyword “objects.gsi_create_obj 0x0000abd9.”
