If you’re a PC or Mac player, you can scale objects with just one cheat and a few keyboard shortcuts.
First, press CTRL+SHIFT+C to open up the cheat console. Then type in the cheat bb.moveobjects on and hit Enter to activate the cheat.
Once moveobjects on (commonly referred to as MOO) is enabled, you’ll be able to scale objects! Make sure you’re in Build/Buy and select the object you want to resize. With the object selected, just use the square bracket keys on your keyboard to make the object larger or smaller. The [ key makes the object smaller. The ] key makes the object larger.
If you’re on a Mac and having trouble resizing objects using the square bracket keys, try pressing Command, Alt, or Shift at the same time. Some Mac users report that just the square bracket keys don’t work for them; however, different Mac users report different keys that need to be pressed at the same time. So see if Command, Alt, or Shift works for you when using the square bracket keys to resize objects.

How to Make the Most of Resizing Objects!
Now that you know how to scale objects, you might be wondering why you need to make an object larger or smaller in the first place! Of course, there are extreme examples. Theoretically, you could make the tiniest teddy bear ever and hide it somewhere in a build just for fun. You could also make a really massive teddy bear that takes up a whole lot just for the amusement of it, but there are definitely more practical uses for this cheat, too.
For example, if you didn’t feel like using the bb.showhiddenobjects and bb.showliveeditobjects cheats to find full-size cars to put in the garage or driveway, you could just grab a toy car from the kids’ décor section and size it up to a full-size vehicle! You’ll sacrifice some texture quality this way; the larger you make an object, the more stretched its texture becomes, but it’s definitely an option!
On the other hand, you could scale objects down to fit nicely as a decorative accent in a home. The more packs you own, the more options you’ll have when it comes to scaling objects in order to expand your decorating skills. For example, you can scale down the My Wedding Stories canopy to fit perfectly above an infant crib for a delicate and sweet touch to a nursery.
There are many more ways to implement the scale objects cheat into your builds so get creative with it and experiment with what you can achieve!
