Re: Skill Cheats?


@peytonelsie, and @CupcakesandFarts, there is some news on bugs that appeared with the new update.  @crinrict has stated that they are working to fix the fireplace bug with a patch.  I'm pretty sure they are working on fixing the cheats bug with a patch also (probably the same patch), especially since some people have stated that the "reset sim" cheat is one of the ones affected … and that is the most important cheat since it fixes stuck Sims!   I do know they are collecting data regarding this.  It will just take a little time! Angel

A lot of cheats were broken after the recent patch. You can find the collection thread in the Bugs forum.

Re: Parenthood character value cheats not working


@DreaSatanus, your issue is more likely to get attention if it is in the proper forum.  This is the Sims 4 Game Information forum, but your issue belongs in the Sims 4 Bug Reports forum. Wink  There is a thread there regarding bugs with cheats here:


The recent bugs with the cheats after the latest update has affected many of the cheats (but not all of them). Frown The first 5 1/2 pages of this thread are not about the recent update's affect on cheats, but the last 20 pages deal only with the current problem!  If your particular cheat is not mentioned, please add it to the list!  I know it is a lot of info to sort through Disappointed , but your issue is more likely to be resolved if it is reported here!
