The Sims 4 Studio CC creator has some very useful cheats

If you are not familiar with The Sims 4 Studio, you should be. While it is mostly known for helping custom content creators ? and players who use Sims 4 CC in their games, S4S can also be useful in other ways.

For players with custom content in The Sims 4, the studio can be very useful when a game update breaks a bunch of CC. Often, the team will roll out a batch fix to help players fix their CC in one click.

While the work for a batch fix for the broken windows, doors and arches after the Star Wars Journey to Batuu patch continues, S4S previously had batch-fixes for broken bath tubs after the Island Living patch and many others.

For players who use CC, The Sims 4 Studio can also help to manage swatches, deleting the ones you don’t want or use, for example. It can also be helpful to improve CC lights (so that they are the correct shade of ambience if you like).

The Sims 4 Studio: How to use cheat commands

 One somewhat under appreciated use of The Sims 4 Studio, though, is simply looking at the existing objects in the game ? whether you use CC or not.

Whether that’s purely down to curiosity so that you can discover all the delightful debug shell buildings in the game or finding this boat, for example.

You can also use it if you want to recreate an existing objects in The Sims 4 and put it in build buy for a cheaper price.

How to list cheat commands in The Sims 4 Studio

A little known, but very useful, trick is to use the studio’s very own cheat commands. To open the cheat console in The Sims 4 Studio, hit SHIFT+CTR+C on your keyboard. You can enter ?help? to list all the cheat commands.

The most useful cheat command for anyone who just wants to see which objects exist in the game is: object-preview. This will bring up a catalogue of all the in-game objects like this.
