We’ve all dabbled in The Sims before, right? If not, now is the perfect time. These Sims 4 Ghost Cheats will help jumpstart any save you’ve got so you can get stuck into whatever Sim-related mischief you fancy!
Cheating is all well and good in The Sims 4, but you need to know where to put the cheats in, right? Well, opening the command console isn’t too complicated at all. All you need to do is press CTR, SHIFT, and C to toggle it on or off. Then, once you’ve typed in the cheat… You just hit enter. Easy peasy.
If you’re playing on a console, pressing all four shoulder buttons simultaneously will also toggle the console on or off.
Before you get stuck in though, it’s worth noting that for a lot of these, you’ll need to have Testing Cheats on, otherwise they won’t work. All you have to do for this is type testingcheats on into the command console. To disable this, you type testingcheats off into the console instead.
If you’re having trouble with this, ‘testingcheats 1’, ‘testingcheats true’, and ‘testingcheats yes’ all appear to work as well.
Where a cheat requires a SHIFT-Click, console users can press X+O on PlayStation 4, or A+B on Xbox One for the same effect.
Throughout this series, I will display the cheats as follows:

If you want to play as a ghost, all you need to do is befriend one when it visits and eventually you’ll be able to invite it to your household. If you have ‘testingcheats’ on, you’ll be able to SHIFT+Click on the ghost when he arrives and do this immediately.
