Why do we love playing The Sims 4 so much? It probably has a lot to do with the fact that we get to live out our wildest, most insane dreams through the Sims we create. Well, there happens to be a way that you can make your Sims experiences even more upfront and personal! You can play The Sims 4 in first person and get a whole new view of your house, the world, and all your Sims’ activities. This guide will tell you how you can put your game into this mode and experience The Sims 4 in first person.
How To Play in First Person in The Sims 4
You know how you can never get the walls quite right when you’re playing Sims? You leave them half up, half down so that you can see everything that’s going on, and also see your house the way you have designed it. However, it would be nice to be able to view it as intended– from your Sim’s perspective in all of your house design abilities’ glory.
To do so, simply press Shift and Tab at the same time. Et voila, you are playing the Sims 4 in first person and viewing the game through the eyes of whichever Sim in the household you had selected.
Shortcut Commands in First Person
You can now use your right mouse button to get a ‘move here’ command through any obstacles (e.g. doors).
If you press the left control button on your keyboard, the camera will recenter onto where your Sim is looking.
Hitting your spacebar will move your perspective from one Sim to another in the household.
Hold the Shift button while you are in the first-person mode to enable mouse use, allowing for you to use the game’s interface once more.
Finally, exit the first-person mode by holding Shift and Tab at the same time once again.
