The Sims 4 debug cheat allows players to access a whole new series of objects that wouldn’t normally be available in Build Mode. This is your red pill, blue pill moment. Do you want to unleash the secret hidden objects? Well, here’s how. 

Once you’ve enabled cheats, you must type testingCheats true into the console. Then, there’s two codes to use:

  • bb.showHiddenObjects
  • bb.showLiveEditObjects

bb.showHiddenObjects activates the ‘Buy Debug Mode’ meaning players can access hidden, playable objects like collectibles, rocks, trees, bushes and more. 

While bb.showLiveEditObjects allows players to access an even wider range of objects totaling over 1200 and including items such as decor, trees, and even cars.

Importantly, you must enter bb.showHiddenObjects before you can use bb.showLiveEditObjects though, so make sure you enter them in that specific order and you must be in Build Mode.

Once you’ve entered them, go to the Build Mode search bar in the bottom left corner of the screen and type in debug. Select one of the **DEBUG** options to access all the new items. 

And that’s it for this one. It’s time to enjoy trying out all the new items that The Sims 4 debug cheat has to offer. If you want to try out any more The Sims 4 cheats, we’ve got a lot more to offer you.
