The Sims 4: Build/Buy Mode Cheats For PS4, Xbox One, PC & Mac

The Sims has always been a popular game and many play just to build and decorate - guilty as charged. We hope The Sims 5 will go even further in terms of build/buy mode.

Building in The Sims can be tough but cheats can unlock so much potential, EA even encourages players to take advantage of them.

We've got every build/buy mode cheat for Sims 4, which work across PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.

How To Enter Cheats In The Sims 4

To enter Cheat Codes in The Sims 4, you must first open the Cheat Console by pressing “Ctrl + Shift + C” on your PC or Mac, while in-game.

To open the Cheat Console on PS4 and Xbox One you have to hold down all four triggers at the same time.

This will bring up the cheat dialogue box where you can enter cheats.

Open the cheat console and input the cheat code testingcheats true first before entering the cheats below.
