WHAT'S NEW

The first thing I noticed when starting to play the game is that the entire interface has changed from the Build a Sim mode to the Live Mode, Build and Buy modes. It seems a lot more intuitive and easier to control. They have definitely done an excellent job at simplifying things. The other wonderful thing is that the world is so much more beautiful and realistic.

You can now choose from different neighborhoods to live in. They range based on home price. There is a low, middle and high price range. Of course with the cheats below, nothing will hold you back.


Sims

  • They are addicted to their phones just like so many people in real life. They will whip out their phones and play a game or browse the internet every chance they get. They can even take selfies!
  • Your Sims can now do multi-tasking. Instead of just doing one task at a time, they can do a few at a time, which makes it convenient set your sim on auto-pilot.
  • They can make their own decisions. You no longer have to choose every little action and option for your Sims. They are smart Sims now.
  • Emotions can change their lives. They way they feel at any moment can drastically change their lives and can trigger certain events.
  • Positive emotions grant your Sims powerful benefits.
  • If your Sim gets inspired, he/she can suddenly get the desire to do something creative or action oriented like starting a job. This is called a Whim.
  • Clothing is no longer as customizable as it was in Sims 3. You only get a few color and pattern option per clothing item. This is a big disappointment, because that was one of my favorite things about Sims 3.

Building/Buy Mode

  • Now you can search for objects in the Build/Buy store. This makes it so much easier to build and decorate your house because you no longer have to rummage through all those objects looking for things.
  • Certain high-priced objects in the store must be unlocked by reaching a certain level.
  • You can now place entire pre-designed rooms that are styled and furnished for you. If you don't enjoy building houses, this is perfect for you.
  • Rooms and fenced areas can now be many different shapes and have rounded corners.
  • Building rooms and homes is much easier and intuitive. You can easily customize any room exactly how you want it.
  • Foundations are so easy to work with now and are so customizable. They can now be lowered or raised to your liking and they shrink and stretch along with the room or home as you adjust the size. This is such a huge benefit because foundations were so clunky and difficult to deal with in the Sims 3.

CHEATS

Many cheats are still the same as in the Sims 3. I have organized them below by category and each table is easily sortable by any column you choose for your convenience. More cheats to come soon. I am updated them as we speak, so check back often and frequently.

ENABLE CHEATS

To toggle the Cheats Bar so that you can begin typing cheats, press CTRL + SHIFT + C. To enable testing cheats, type testingcheats {true / false} in the Cheats Bar.

Mailbox Cheats

After enabling cheats by typing testingcheats {true / false} in the Cheats Bar, your mailbox can do some wonderful things. This basically works the same as in Sims 3.

To activate the Mailbox Cheats, Shift + Click on your mailbox, then click Alter Needs. You get the options below:

  • Fill Needs (world) -This option will fill all your Sims needs like hunger, ener, fun, hygiene, etc. when they are out around town.
  • Fill Needs (household) - This option will fill all your Sims needs like hunger, ener, fun, hygiene, etc. when they are at their house.
  • Enable Household Needs Decay - This option will allow your Sim's needs to increase and decrease naturally during gameplay at their house.
  • Enable World Needs Decay - This option will allow your Sim's needs to increase and decrease naturally during gameplay out around town.
  • Disable Household Needs Decay - This option will prevent your Sim's needs from decreasing any more than their current level while they are at their house.
  • Disable World Needs Decay - This option will prevent your Sim's needs from decreasing any more than their current level while they are out around town.
