The Sims 4: Upcoming Shrink Feature is both Useful and Hilarious

As you might’ve heard The Sims 4’s upcoming Content Update is going to bring a lot of new useful features.

In The Sims 4 you are able to make objects larger using the Shift + ] keys. If you want to return the object to its original state you can use Shift + [ until it goes back to normal. However, we were never able to properly make objects smaller than they truly are – until now.

The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs’ upcoming content update will bring the shrink feature to the base game which basically lets you shrink ANY object you can think of. From flat rugs to huge trees, any object will become smaller by pressing Shift + [ after selecting your desired object.

As you can see in the screen capture below it’s really cute (and useful) to turn huge trees into small shrubs. It’s also useful for turning lights that you might consider too tall into little corner lights.


Find that huge curved TV from The Sims 4 City Living might be too large for your wall? The shrink tool can make it fit into any part of your wall!


All objects that you shrink down are usable so you can really go crazy with this tool. However, please note that animations won’t adapt to objects that are shrunk.

Here’s a Sim sitting on a shrunk toilet next to a shrunken shower.
