Fix for Broken Cheats
« on: June 24, 2018, 07:13:16 PM »
TwistedMexi has made a mod that fixes the broken cheats.

Please read his post carefully, the cheats are not a bug per-say, but a design choice I believe but his post explains this better than I can summarize.

If you do use his mod, remember it is a mod and will need to be updated with future patches and so on. Always make a back up of your games before installing any mod, even ones from trustworthy people such as TwistedMexi.

The mods folder is installed by default, along with it's Resource.cfg. As shown in the photos below.

If you don't have this type of setup. You may want to try a Sims 4 factory reset, so the folder can be set up correctly.

Sims 4 Factory Reset - (What & Howto)

If you want the Cheats Fix mod, download it and then copy it from where you downloaded it to your Sims 4 mods folder.
C:\Users\Username\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods

Make sure both mods/cc options are check marked in the Game Options.
-- Options > Game options > Other - Enable Custom Content and Mods, and Script Mods Allowed

You will need to exit the game and reload it for the mod to show as active when loading the game.

This mod does fix Skill Cheats -
