Recommended Videos

The Sims 4 StrangerVille is the latest expansion for the popular life-sim title, and as always, there are a bunch of cheats for players to play around with. This Sims 4 guide will talk you through everything you need to know on how to use Sims 4 StrangerVille cheats, as well as provide a complete list of codes to use for all manner of different results.

How to Use Cheats

Using cheats in The Sims 4 StrangerVille is a lot like how you’d use them in the base game. First, open up the cheats console by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C at once. Now, type ‘testingcheats true’ before entering any of the StrangerVille cheats below, otherwise, they won’t work.

Also a quick note, you’ll need to enter this again anytime you change lots due to a bug. Shoutout to Reddit user Twisted Mexi for the information.

How to Reveal Secret Lab Rooms and Reset the Lab

The Secret Lab has a bunch of rooms you’ll unlock as you progress through the story of The Sims 4 StrangerVille. If you can’t be bothered waiting, though, here are the cheats you’ll need.

TwistedMexi has noted, however, that these mods cannot be used without their very own AllCheats mod, as they’re disabled by default. You can download and find out how to install AllCheats here. You can also support them on Patreon if you want to support their work.
