- INTRODUCING THE SIMS 4 POSITIVITY CHALLENGE WITH MILLIE BOBBY BROWN Simmers, our collaboration with Millie Bobby Brown continues with the Positivity Challenge!
The Positivity Challenge encourages your Sim to perform kind, generous, and sweet tasks for other Sims. Being friendly to others, performing helpful deeds for neighbors, or anything that spreads positive energy will unlock certain gifts. Plus, your Sim will make their (game) world a better place. Now that’s a win-win! From November 13 to December 4, 2018, your Sims can opt-in to this Aspiration.*
Here’s how it works:
Have your Sim call the Event Coordinator from the social tab (Wink! It’s MBB.)
When MBB shows up, accept the Positivity Challenge
Your Sim will then receive the Box of Kindness
Each time your Sim completes an objective, the Box of Kindness will gift your Sim with a decorative reward – viewing the reward, such as a motivational poster, will give your Sim a random positive moodlet or skill buff
Once your Sim has finished all the objectives, they’ll get a special reward trait
Sims will also be able to challenge other Sims to be kind
So, what Good Deeds are we talking about, exactly? Here are a few examples:
Brighten a Sim’s day
Tell a Sim a joke
Clean up trash or dishes
Repair a broken object
Read to a toddler or child
Help someone with homework
Send a Sim a gift
Give a pet a treat

- 10 Best Fun Challenges to Play in the Sims 4 Universe! If you've been wondering what things to do in Sims 4 when bored, here’s the answer: bring into it some fun challenges! Players design their own original challenges to spice things up. All of them are easily accessible, no matter if you play Sims 4 Mac or Sims 4 PC etc.
This guide will introduce you to the Top-10 Sims Challenges.
How to Play Challenges in Sims 4
Read the rules.
Create the Sims a challenge requires.
Give them necessary features, aspirations, traits, career choices.
Follow the rules.
You win after you’ve achieved the final challenge goal without breaking a single rule.
A timeless challenge in which you're offered to build a whole a dynasty:
1) Create any Sim-persona.
2) Obtain the most massive empty lot you can find.
3) Your Sim is allowed to have only 10,000 Simoleons.
4) The "founder" should build the house and grind money to start a successful dynasty.
5) This saga should continue for 10 consecutive generations.
The Legacy Challenge is pretty exciting: you get to start a famous dynasty, play from-zero-to-hero scenario and watch how the family seed you've planted grows, beating various mini-challenges at the same time.
Black Widow Challenge
This is a little disturbing challenge, with the dark undertones. Your main objectives are:
1) Create a tempting adult female character.
2) This character should have Romantic/Materialistic traits. She can move into a house, but money-cheats and working are strictly prohibited.
3) Meet a male Sim and seduce him into marriage.
4) Throw a dinner party to present your newly-baked spouse to the others.
5) Find a new love interest at the party and get caught by your husband.
6) Kill him via any method you like: toilet electrocution, failed space expedition, etc.
7) Marry another sweet-heart.
8) Repeat the murder-cycle.
Store all the tombstones in once place: as soon as you assassinate 10 husbands, without getting caught, you will win. Remember: you can make a living through only inheriting your victims' money.
Not So Berry
How to make fun Sims games even funnier? That's right: mix the Legacy concept with juicy bright colors, representing different generations.
Your goal is to artfully build a 10 Sims generations, marked with a distinct color:
Mint. Hardworking and ambitious, but also mischievous. Vegetarian/Jealous/Materialistic traits along with Scientist career and Mischief must be present.
Rose. A spoilt generation with Romantic/Snob traits and Political aspirations.
Yellow. Awkward loners. Nerdy, clumsy, ambitious.
Grey. Misunderstood outcasts dreaming of a pro-athlete career.
And so forth.
This one belongs to the easy Sims 4 challenges category.
More Legacy Challenges
This one consists of:
Uglacy - breed a family of ugly Sims, until one day normal/beautiful Sim is born among them.
Prettacy - the reversed Uglacy.
Alphabetacy - arrange the names of family descendants in alphabetical order: Abraham, Boris, Cleveland, Dale.
The Cult Or Commune Challenge
Create a charismatic Sim with Friend of the World aspiration - it'll help to build your cult! Make an Amish-like commune and forbid technologies, bring back pagan rituals, etc. Just make your followers earn money through hobbies to support your dark whims financially.
In this Sims challenge, you're offered to assume the role of the Asylum keeper.
Build a house and inhabit it with 8 Sims.
Every Sim should have Insane trait and a number of other random traits/aspirations (excluding Self-assured).
Choose one Sim to manipulate.
Help that Sim to achieve its aspiration and finally leave the cuckoo-house.
Cheats are forbidden, and you can take the difficulty to another level: make the number of beds, chairs, bathrooms, etc. less than the amount necessary for 8 Sim-personas. You'll have to work hard to overpower your character's insanity.
This is sort of a mixture of Legacy/History Challenge. Only this time your epic family saga starts in the 19th century America.
1) The challenge begins in 1890 - no electricity, no sexual intercourse for fun. Interracial/single-sex marriages are prohibited. Besides you can exploit only uncomfortable wooden furniture.
2) 20th century. Hooray for electricity! Women cannot be employed though.
3) 1910-s. It's WWI, consequently, men have to go there. Who's going to die will be decided by rolling the dice.
4) 1920-s. Female Sims can finally get employed.
5) 1930. Great Depression and Prohibition Era - everybody loses their jobs. Joining mafia is a good idea, perhaps...
And so forth. Every decade has its cultural/historical references and unique style. From gorgeous Victorian dresses to disco haircuts.
Probably the hardest challenge so far. The main trick here is that you're going to survive without basic comfort means. And maintaining your Sim's happiness is a top priority.
The objectives are:
1) Create a Sim of any gender, with any traits/aspirations.
2) Move into an empty lot.
3) Through applying cheats strip him/her of all the money.
4) Begin the survival-quest: beg for alms, forage the trash containers, do fishing/gardening, become the street musician, etc. But never get employed.
Initially, you'll have to sleep on benches, bathe in public toilets and somehow make it to the game-part when you can begin amassing money to build a new home. Your goal is to survive hunger/thirst/public contempt, complete sub-missions, build a house and save up $5,000.
Wolf Pack Challenge
One of the freshest Sims 4 challenges 2018. You must create 6 hunter-dogs and live all by yourself on a remote island with a mischievous raccoon nearby.
You're given only 2,000 Simoleons, that's why think over carefully every step.
This challenge takes you to the post-apocalyptic reality. Nuclear war had erased the Sims world from the face of the earth in 2015! And now your objective is to stay alive for as long as you can:
1) Create a bomb shelter and inhabit it with your Sim-persona.
2) No luxury or extra-comfort, only vital things: cheap stove, refrigerator, bed. Check the Sims 4 Get to Work for prison-styled trundles.
3) Stay inside 24/7: the risk of radiation is too high.
4) If the Sim dies of something, except the old age, the game is lost.
This is the best post-apocalyptic mode the game has to offer. And perhaps it can make a legit substitute for Fallout 76, why not.

- The Sims 4 Cheats - Cheating Cheetah For those of you, who are tired of challenges too difficult to beat, who don't want to patently grind for Simoleons through honest hard-working and those, who simply want to do some funny experimenting - our Sims 4 guide on cheats is at your service.
How to Enable Cheats in Sims 4?
In Sims 4 PC edition Press Ctrl + Shift + C in order to show/hide command-console. In Sims 4 PS4 version you will need to press all 4 shoulder buttons on your controller simultaneously. After you are done with entering a cheat-code, always push Enter to execute the command. Voila: the Sims 4 cheat codes are activated!
Why Aren't The Cheats Working in Sims 4?
In case some of the cheats refuse to work, first enter this command:
testingcheats true or testingcheats on
Both commands are identical. Then re-enter the code in question and press Enter. If nothing happens, check if you have entered the cheat correctly.
How Do I Get More Money On Sims 4?
Regularly it's done through working/enterprising/selling art, novels etc. But if you're way too impatient for that, enter the Sims 4 cheat money:
motherlode - 50,000 Simoleons.
kaching or rosebud - 1,000 Simoleons.
Basically, you can enter the money-cheats as many times as you need.
Sims 4 Cheat Relationship
Through cheats you can alter your relationship with other Sims or with animals. It is done through this clunky command: modifyrelationship yoursimfirst yoursimlast targetsimfirst targetsimlast x relationshiptype.
In this command you should enter first/last name of both you and the Sim you're interested in. X symbol stands for the emotion bar and can be 100%, 50% or even negative, thus evoking hatred.
relationshiptype that you can apply:
LTR_Friendship_main - Friendship.
LTR_Romance_Main - Romance/love.
To manipulate pets, use this command: LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main. Note: a pet must have a last name for that command to work.
Example of how you make a Sim fall in love with you:
modifyrelationship Charlotte Grey Arny Smith 100 LTR_Romance_main Note: the friendship meter must be high as well to make it work.
Sims 4 Cheats Needs - How to Refill?
To fill your Sim’s need:
Enter testingcheats true
Shift + Click on your Sim/
Fill the need.
How To Level Up Skills In Sims 4?
Sims 4 cheats for skills are an option too. To upgrade any skill in Sims 4 within a few a seconds, you'll have to utilize this command: stats.set_skill_level Major_SkillName X, where X stands for the skill level.
For instance: stats.set_skill_level Major_Guitar 8 - your guitar skill level will be reset to 8.
Here are the skill shortcuts:
If a Sims 4 skill cheat doesn't work, make sure you’ve typed the code in right.
What Is The Cheat To Make Sims Happy?
In Sims 4 cheats make happy both your Sim and you. To alter your Sim's emotional state, apply this cheat-code: Sims.add_buff X, in which X denotes a specific emotion. For instance: Sims.add_buff social_angry - your Sim will lose their temper.
To make your Sim pleased and happy, enter: Sims.add_buff social_happy - and the trick is done.
Sims 4 unlock all items - How?
There is a way to trick the game and unlock everything you desire, but only in the Build Mode.
Do the following:
Toggle the console Ctrl + Shift + C.
Enter this: bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement
Now the career items and three stylish extra-rooms are unlocked.
Sims 4 Secret Funny Tricks
Automatic bill-paying is possible through this cheat-code: households.autopay_bills.
To make a quick promotion happen enter: careers.promote[name of career]. To earn an instant demotion enter: careers.demote[name of career]. And if you feel like quitting right this second, type in: careers.remove_career[name of career].
To unlock all the possible rewards in the chosen career, enter: bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement.
3. Sim spawning
To spawn a specific amount of Sims, use this: sims.spawnsimple[number of Sims desired]. However don't go too wild with the numbers - the game may crash due to overload.
4. Preplanned pregnancy
There is a way to make a certain Sim or a Ghost look "pregnant".
It is achievable through these commands:
sims.add_buff buff_pregnancy_trimester1 - Ghost/Sim becomes "pregnant" in the first trimester.
sims.add_buff buff_pregnancy_trimester2 - pregnancy in second trimester.
sims.add_buff buff_pregnancy_trimester3 - the same effect in the third trimester.
sims.add_buff buff_pregnancy_inlabor - Ghost/Sim will be pregnant at term and if you obtain a cradle, a false birth will ensue.
To get rid of a certain Sim, say in the Black Widow challenge, you can cause unavoidable death upon them:
sims.add_buff buff_death_electrocution_warning - getting electrocuted, while fixing an electric device.
sims.add_buff buff_death_elderexhaustion_warning - death after a fitness session.
sims.add_buff buff_mortified - a Sim gets embarrassed,/disgraced so much, that he/she dies within the next 5 hours.
sims.add_buff buff_motives_hunger_starving - death from starvation within one day.
6. Interaction tricks
Enter testingcheats true in the console.
Shift + Click on an object and use the following cheats to produce effects upon it.
Sim - a Sim can be modified now, but the name and inherited traits will remain untouched.
Sim - reset a Sim.
Sim - add the Sim to the family (Add to Family)
Sim - motives will be full, mood reset to Happy (Cheat Motive > Make Happy)
Sim - change motives swiftly (Cheat Motive > Enable Motive Decay)
Sim - let the motives be solid/static (Cheat Motive > Disable Motive Decay)
Object - resets an object.
Dirty-able Object - an object becomes dirty.
Dirty Object - an object becomes clean.
Mailbox - mailbox gets reset.
Ground - a Sim gets teleported to a certain location.
7. Grim Reaper
You can play as Grim Reaper himself! To achieve that:
Enable the cheats.
Make one of the Sims in your household die.
Grim Reaper will be attracted by this sacrifice.
Shift+Click on him and press Add to Family, before he leaves the scene.
Now you can play as the Death Angel!
