Long-time simmers may already know how to enable cheats, but let’s go over it just in case you are new to using cheats.

Prior to using cheats, use one of the following combinations depending on your console of choice.


Buttons To Press


Ctrl + Shift + C


Command + Shift + C

Console (Xbox and PlayStation)

All 4 Shoulder Buttons

This will open a white bar; here you will type “testingcheats true”, which enables cheats to be used in the future.

How To Fulfill All Needs At The Same Time

Fulfilling every need at the same time is actually quite simple! With cheats enabled, simply hold ‘Shift’ and click on your Sim. Here, you should see an expanded menu, with the “Cheat Need” option. Click on this, and then on “Make Happy”. This will fulfill every need that your Sim has.

If you are playing on PlayStation or Xbox, don’t worry! Below, you can see the console-specific equivalent of holding ‘Shift’.

On console, you will also see a menu with “Cheat Need” as an option. Click on this, and then find “Make Happy”.

This can also be done on a mailbox (Alter Needs), which fills the needs of all Sims in the household or the entire world at the same time.

Needs can also essentially be turned off. This is done the same way you fulfill needs. By pressing ‘Shift’ (or the console-specific equivalent), you will also see the option to “Disable Need Decay”.

This prevents all needs from going down over time. We suggest using the “Make Happy” cheat before disabling need decay so they remain as full as possible.
