It won’t let me edit pre-existing sims

★★ Novice

I’ve tried typing in cas.fulleditmode and testingcheats on but it won’t work. I’ve also tried hitting x and o simultaneously and it still won’t work. Please help.

@OreoPrince050113 , once you have enabled testing cheats and enabled CAS full edit mode, you can either click on a mirror or dresser and choose Change Sim , or else you can Shift-click (if on a PC or Mac) on your Sim and choose Modify in CAS, which I think is the same as your pressing X and O at the same time on console (but I'm not sure on that). Wink

If you typed in testingcheats on then that is wrong it's testingcheats true then cas.fulleditmode.

@OreoPrince050113 Are you on Xbox or PS4? Is the cheat window opening when you press and hold all four shoulder buttons on your controller?

 

If you are you trying to use the cas.fulleditmode cheat while you are already in CAS I'm not sure it will work. I think you have to enter the cheats first and then go into CAS. In Live Mode, open a cheat window and try using testingcheats true, then enter the cas.fulleditmode cheat, and then go into CAS. Hopefully it works then.

@Rachelharris31 , (and @OreoPrince050113  & @RandomBuzziness ), actually both testingcheats on and testingcheats true will work. Raised eyebrow They are interchangeable!   Here is a a full explanation from one of our Champions here Angel  https://sherigr.com/sims-4-cheats/how-to-cheat/#cas
