    Is there going to be a cheat like ‘maxmotives’ to set all the Sims needs to full?

    • lavii

    • savanna

      You have to press control shift c like in Sims 3, then type in testingcheats true then it should say it’s enabled, then press down the shift button then click on the mail box, click alter needs, then fill needs (household) there ya go

    I got the limited edition sims 4 this week and I didn’t realize my sim had twins, I just thought the game was acting up when it made me name them so I named them both the same name. I tried the resetSim cheat but it keeps telling “sim not found”. Why is this? Does the cheat not work for the limited edition game. I typed in the first and last name correctly but it still won’t work.
