The Sims 4 Seasons Cheats: How to Skip Seasons, Make Lightning Strike & More

Seasons of love.

The Sims 4 Seasons Cheats

With the Sims 4 Seasons expansion, your humble little world is given a new perspective as you watch it change and evolve with the passing of time. But if mother nature is working a little slowly for your taste, you can take the power into your own hands and manipulate various aspects with the following cheats.

Take note that cheats, as always, are to be used at the player’s own discretion, as they can occasionally lead to stability or compatibility issues. It is recommended that you save your game before attempting to use any of these in The Sims 4 Seasons.

Additionally, The Sims 4 Seasons update has caused issues with the existing skill cheats, a known issue that the developers are working on. As such, they will not be included in this guide at this time.

Finally, in order to use these cheats, you will first have to open the command console by pressing Control + Shift + C, and entering testingcheats true – this allows the game to accept any subsequent cheats you enter. You can hide the command console with Escape, when not in use.
