The Sims 4 base game includes a reward store feature that allows your sim to purchase reward potions and traits. These rewards cost varying amounts of satisfaction points, which are earned by completing your sims’ whims and by completing aspiration milestones. It can take a long time in the game to earn enough satisfaction points for the more expensive rewards. Therefore, it can be helpful to cheat satisfaction points and earn them instantly! This post will show you exactly how to do just that.
How To Enable Cheats in the Sims 4
Before entering a cheat, you need to make the cheat bar appear in the top left hand corner of the screen by pressing:
- CTRL + Shift + C on PC or Mac.
- All four triggers on console (i.e., PS4 or Xbox one).
Type in testingcheats true and press enter to enable the use of cheats. There’s more information about cheats on the Let’s Talk Sims Cheats page.
How To Cheat Satisfaction Points
After enabling cheats, type sims.give_satisfaction_points X into the cheat bar and press enter. Replace X with the number of satisfaction points that you want to add to your sims current amount. Don’t use any commas in the number!
Cheat to Remove Satisfaction Point in the Sims 4
If you want to reduce the number of satisfaction points that your sim has, then replace X with a negative number! Remember to type in the number that you want to add or subtract, not the total amount that you want your sim to have by the end like you would for some money cheats.
Troubleshooting: The Sims 4 Satisfaction Cheat Not Working
If the satisfaction points cheat isn’t working, then here are three things that you could try:
- Check if you enabled cheats correctly. You can always try it again.
- Make sure you aren’t using any commas or decimal points in the number that you’re replacing X with.
- Try waiting a little bit and clicking on a different sim in the household before switching back to the sim in question. I find that it can sometimes take a bit of time for the results of cheats like this one to show in your sim’s UI.
Satisfaction points are really useful for customising your gameplay. You can make it super unrealistic by giving your sim the Never Weary reward trait or really fun by giving your sim the Beguiling reward trait! Satisfaction points can also help your sim advance more quickly in their skills, careers, and aspirations. Additionally, specific reward potions might be necessary to complete recipes. For example, the iconic ambrosia treat requires the potion of youth, which must be bought from the rewards store.
