The Sims 4 once again allows you to shape their personalities with different traits. If you’ve found that you don’t like the traits you chose, though, there’s no easy way for you to change your sims’ traits, unfortunately.
EA hasn’t made some sort of concoction for you to change these in any regular, in-game way. The way you make ’em is the way they’ll stay and live their lives.
Lucky for you, there is a way for you to change them up! With the help of cheats, of course!
How to Change Your Traits (With Cheats in The Sims 4)
You can open up the cheat console by hitting CTRL+Shift+C and then typing “testingcheats on” (without the quotation marks).
Hit enter and then type “cas.fulleditmode” (again without the quotations) and hit enter again.
Hit ESC to close the cheat console, and once you do that, you’ll be able to Shift+Click on any sim to edit anything about them in Create a Sim as though you were first making them.
So go ahead and Shift+Click them and hit “Modify in CAS” and you will be able to change their traits (as well as any other thing you’d normally change when you first create them).
With this, you can even change their age, looks, gender, voice, and more. Careful not to change anything you don’t want to!
Congratulations! Your boring ol’ sim will be all new with some fresh personality. This is perfect if you want to change them up as they age, to roleplay some life-changing experiences. Especially as new packs come out, you’ll want to try those new traits out!
