Aspirations are a Sim’s long-term goals that they pursue throughout their virtual lives in The Sims 4. They give Sims a sense of purpose, direction and influence their personalities, behaviors, and desires.
In order to complete an aspiration, a Sim needs to achieve certain milestones. This can be quite time-consuming, as players are required to complete a long list of tasks. Thankfully, there are a couple of cheats players can use to achieve their lifelong ambitions faster and get multiple Reward Traits for completing multiple Aspirations. This guide covers how players can use Aspiration cheats to excel in any aspiration they choose in The Sims 4.
How to Use Aspiration Cheats in Sims 4
Before players can use any Aspiration cheats, they need to open up the in-game cheats console. The method for enabling cheats varies for different platforms. Therefore, players can choose what suits them best.
PC users can simultaneously press Ctrl + Shift + C on their keyboard, while Mac users can use the Command + Shift + C alternative. For Xbox and PS players, pressing all four triggers of their gaming controller at the same time opens up the cheat window.
If done correctly, a small dialogue box will appear on the top-left of the screen, where players can input cheat codes. To enable cheats in Sims 4, players need to type “testingcheats true” or “testingcheats on” in this box. Once they hit enter, a message will pop up on the screen, stating “Cheats are enabled.” Now players can input their preferred Aspiration Cheat.
- To instantly complete a Sim’s current milestones, enter the cheat code “aspirations.complete_current_milestone”
- To increase a Sim’s Aspiration progress and add 100 Aspiration Points, enter the cheat code “sims.add_buff Points”
- To get 3,000 Satisfaction Points for the Sim, enter the cheat code “sims.give_satisfaction_points 3000”
- To grant a specific Trait to the Sim, enter the cheat code “Traits.equip_trait [X]”, where X is the name of the Reward Trait players want. For example, if they want to equip the Kindness Ambassador trait from the Positivity Challenge Aspiration, the cheat would be “Traits.equip_trait KindnessAmbassador”
There is no limit on the number of Aspirations a Sim can complete in The Sims 4, and therefore, they can earn unlimited Aspiration Reward Traits. That said, players can use these cheats to complete any aspiration they desire with minimal effort.
The Sims 4 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
