Are your sim’s needs getting way too demanding? Let’s fix that! Here’s a helpful list of sims 4 needs cheats so you can quickly fill your sim’s need bar or turn off need decay altogether. I’ll also tell you how to fill your sim’s needs with the click of a button, answer frequently asked questions, and give you the best sims 4 needs mods.

Sims 4 Needs Cheat

To use sims 4 cheat codes, open up the cheat code box using CTRL + SHIFT + C and type in ‘testingcheats on’, then type in the need cheat. To close the cheats console use CTRL + SHIFT + C again.

To ensure that these needs cheats work properly, make sure you have testingcheats on, you’re clicked on the sim that you want to alter, and that the cheat code is typed correctly. I suggest using copy & paste from your browser into the game to prevent any possible typos.

For some of the cheats on this list, you’ll just have to click on your sim, not type anything into the cheat console. Those will be marked with an asterisk (*). Here are the sims 4 needs cheats:

Sims 4 Needs Cheats FAQ

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding sims 4 need cheats such as: how to make your sims needs full, how to enable and disable needs decay, and how to enable cheats in sims 4

How do you enable cheats in Sims 4?

To enable cheats in the Sims 4 open the cheats console by holding CTRL + SHIFT + C then typing testingcheats on into the cheats console. You should receive a message back that says “Cheats are enabled.” This will allow you to use any cheat code in the sims 4. Hold CTRL + SHIFT + C again to close the cheats console.

How do you make your Sims needs full?

To fill up your sim’s needs, type the cheat sims.fill_all_commodities into the cheats console. This will fill up the needs bars of all the sims in your household. To only fill up an individual sim’s needs, you can hold Shift and click on the sim, then choose Cheat Need, then Make Happy. This will fill up their need bars and set their mood to happy.

How do you turn off needs decay in Sims 4?

To disable your sim’s needs from decreasing, hold Shift and click on your sim, then click on Cheat Need, then Disable Need Decay. Your sims needs will no longer go down.

To enable your sim’s needs, again hold Shift and click on your sim, then click on Cheat Need, then Enable Need Decay. Your sim’s needs will once again go up and down as normal.

Sims 4 Needs Mods

I use mods to quickly and easily cheat my sims needs. No more having to write out long cheat codes. With one click of a button, you can fill up your sim’s needs. The mods I’m going to share with you are also listed in my must-have mods for sims 4 post because they really are some of the best mods out there.

1. MC Command Center by Deaderpool

MC Command Center is an essential mod for the sims 4. It has TONS of features, so you’ll see it talked about it in most of my cheat posts. It makes it a lot easier to alter our sims through a series of menus instead of having to enter cheat codes. For this post, we’ll be focusing on how to fill your sim’s needs with mc command center.

To use mc command center skill cheats, first, click on your sim and find the ‘MC Command Center‘ option.

This will bring up the sim menu. From there click on MC Cheats.

Click on Make Happy.

Then select OK.

And now your sim’s needs will be completely filled up, maxed out, and all green. Yay!

Obviously, you can also do this entire process without the mod by shift-clicking on your sim, so it’s really up to personal preference if you want to use it for cheating your sim’s needs or not. But I enjoy MC Command Center for SO many other reasons, as I talked about in my must-have mods for sims 4 post, that it’s my go-to before using the default cheat options in the sims 4.


2. UI Cheats Extension

You absolutely NEED this mod if you are a player that cheats your sim’s needs a lot. To explain what this mod does in simplest terms, instead of having to type cheats codes into the cheats bar, you can visually click on things in the sims 4 UI (such as skills, needs, money, etc.) to alter them.

I’ll take you through an example of using UI cheats extension to mess around with my sim’s needs bars. First, we’ll go to the sim’s needs panel. Now we simply click the spot on the need bar where we want their need to be.

To make our sim have to pee we just click on the lower end of the bladder need bar. Then we’ll fill up my sim’s bladder need by clicking on the far right side of the bladder need bar.

*Be careful when using this mod. I have killed sims by accidentally clicking on the very low end of the hunger need and having them starve to death instantly. My bad😬

Another useful feature of this mod is the ability to delete moodlets from your sim by right-clicking on them. So, let’s say that we set our sim’s bladder need so low that they pee themselves. So embarrassing! We can go over to their moodlets and right-click on the embarrassed moodlet to get rid of it and make them instantly feel better! (I guess she’s still a little stinky & uncomfortable, but at least she’s no longer embarrassed)

As you can see, this mod is SUPER helpful! With this mod, I almost never have to type cheat codes in. So if you’re looking for a way to cheat your sim’s needs really fast without much work, this is the mod that you need.


I hope that these needs cheats for sims 4 helped you out and if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment. Happy Simming!
