How to Use CAS Full Edit Cheat in Sims 4

In case you need clarification on what CAS Full Edit means, it allows you to freely edit a Sim in the game. You’ll be able to change things like their physical features, which is not something you’d usually be able to do in the middle of a game. It’s usually reserved for when you first ‘Create a Sim’ (CAS).

The first thing you need to do is activate all the cheats in the game. You must open the cheat box by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C on PC or Mac or pressing all four triggers simultaneously on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Then, enter “testingcheats on” without quotation marks into the dialogue box.

This action brings up a text box in the top left corner of the screen. To enable the CAS Full Edit Cheat, you need to type in “cas.fulleditmode” again, but without quotation marks.

To edit a Sim, you can either hold shift and click on the character, and an ‘Edit in CAS’ option will pop up, or you can go to the bottom right corner of the screen and find Create a Sim option there. When in CAS, you can fully edit the Sim you have selected. You can also select ‘Change Sim’ on a mirror to alter more appearances.

Usually, once a Sim is created, you can only change their clothes or accessories, but with the CAS full edit cheat, you can change everything from their gender to their aspirations and more!
