Let’s be honest, life can be hard sometimes, and at time’s we’ve all wished we could cheat our way through it. While it’s not possible in the real-word, the virtual world of The Sims 4 has done its best to let us see what life could be like with cheat codes. So if you’re wondering how to unlock all items in The Sims 4, then you’ve found the right guide because we are going to show you exactly what to do.

How to Unlock All Items in The Sims 4

If you’ve used cheat codes in the past for The Sims, then odds are this will be a pretty familiar process for you. However, if you’re new to the world of online cheats then you might need a little help getting started, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. To unlock all items in The Sims 4 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the cheat window by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C (PC) or R1/RB+R2/RT+L1/LB+L2/LT (Xbox One, PlayStation 4)
  2. Type “testingcheats true” into the window that opens up
  3. Type “bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement” to unlock all object-based items
  4. Type “bb.showliveeditobjects” to unlock all building-based items

There you have it, all items in the game should now be at your disposal! You should see a variety of new objects and items available to you that you can use in the game however you’d like. Further, you’ll still find that some of the items will have to be purchased, but remember that you can either use the unlimited money cheat or simply work hard to earn lots of money to purchase any of the items that you’re interested in. You can even earn money by writing a song!

There are also a handful of hidden items that can be uncovered by typing “debug” into the build menu search bar. It’s worth emphasizing that you won’t find these hidden items unless you type in “debug.” So make sure you don’t skip this step if you truly want to know how to unlock all items in The Sims 4.
