If you’re building then there are a few cheats that can help you with being able to more freely place objects as well as giving you some extra items to place on your lot.

Move Objects Cheat AKA MOO

This cheat allows you to place items anywhere on the lot and not have to leave full tiles free for the grids around them. If you hold down alt while placing objects you can move things with even more freedom. You can also raise and lower an object’s height with the 9 and 0 keys, while [ and ] will scale the size up and down.

Console players can also use the move objects cheat but it’s a little glitchier. Arrow keys on the D-Pad will do the raising and lowering but items need to be by a wall. Holding L2 and R2 or LT and RT while pressing the arrows will resize objects.

Tip: Placing things too close together may make them unusable for Sims.

Show Hidden Objects Cheat

If you want to place some clutter items then show hidden objects can help. All you need to do is enter the cheat:

This displays a large number of extra clutter items that are seen in the game but not purchasable such as plates or glasses. If this isn’t enough there’s also an extra cheat:

This unlocks all the environmental objects in the game but prepare yourself as your catalog is about to get cluttered. You can find the new objects by using the debug filter or entering debug into the search bar.

Unlock Career Mode Objects Cheat
