In The Sims 4, players can give their Sims almost any kind of life they can think of by using skill cheats. As they build the lives and personalities of their Sims, they can give them different jobs, life events, and relationships.

Skills are essential for Sims’ hobbies, jobs, goals, and some parts of the story. In The Sims 4, you can improve your skills by playing the game, but you can also use cheats and mods to speed up the process. This guide lists all the Skill cheats that come with each DLC pack for The Sims 4.

How to Enable Cheats in The Sims 4


Before putting cheat codes in PC or console versions of The Sims 4, players must ensure that cheats are turned on in their game save. First, bring up the cheat console by pressing CTRL+ALT+C on a PC or L1+L2+R1+R2 on a console. The next step is to type “testingcheats true” to turn cheats on. Then, players can change their Skill settings by entering cheat codes.

There are a few different types of skills: Major, Minor, Child, and Toddler. Teens, young adults, adults, and elders can all learn both major and minor skills. Once a child has mastered all of their Child Skills, they can use some Major and Minor Skills.


The highest level of a major skill is 10, and the highest level of a minor or toddler skill is 5. The highest level of a potty skill is 3, though. Players can level up their Skills by doing related activities and using related items. Still, they don’t have to grind it out if they don’t want to. They can use cheats instead.
