The Sims 4 Tutorial: How to Resize Objects

The Sims 4 introduces a brand new way for you to play with objects! Each object lets you resize them and scale them however you want.

Let’s try this trick with Bleep the Robot – a miniature plastic toy for Kids!

To resize an object, simply select an object you want and press ”Shift + ]”. You can make enlarged objects smaller by pressing ”Shift + [”.

As long as the object is not bigger than your Lot, you can make it as much big as you want it to be!

  1. I finally watched a video on this. I’m sure I’m late to answering questions, but I’ll put the answer out there anyway. When they say “Shift + [” or “Shift + ]” you aren’t pressing the “+” key! Just hit shift AND [ or ].

  2. I own an ESP keyboard and I don’t use shift, I press ‘ to scale down and ¿ to scale up, my game is v1.45.62.1020, hope it helps somebody.

  3. Hi all, I have a Spanish keyboard and discover that objects become bigger if I press Ctrl + ! and then Ctrl + +. Haven’t discover yet how to make it smaller, but I can always delete the object and start again.

  4. I have a laptop and when I hit Shift + all it does is zoom. When I played Sims 3 on desktop I remember it working. How can I make it work on my laptop?
