The Sims 4 Strangerville Cheats
Military Career and Buy Mode Objects
Strangerville is unique in that it doesn't offer a lot of skills and careers - its prime feature is a new location and storyline that complements that location. For this reason, the list of cheats for this game pack is not very long but there are still a few useful bits of information to relay:
How To Cheat
Press Control + Shift + C on your keyboard, which will bring up a white box. From there you can enter simple cheats, or enable all of them by typing testingcheats on. They can be turned off again by swapping out the on for testingcheats off. With that said, here are the cheats unique to the Strangerville Game Pack
Cheat promotions in the Strangerville Military Career by using the cheat console and typing careers.promote military. Mid-way through the career you will get to choose between becoming and officer or covert agent. The rewards and responsibilities of these two tracks differ like all others.
Traits.Equip_Trait Paranoid will give you the new trait from the Game Pack, which can also be removed with Traits.Remove_trait paranoid.
Add or Remove the Infected Trait
If a Sim has been exposed to the StrangerVille virus by ingesting spores or being exposed, they get an Infected trait. You can add or remove this trait with Traits.Equip_Trait Infected or Traits.Remove_Trait Infected with testingcheats on. Note that just Infected works in my game, but some players may need to use the more specific Strangerville_Infected if that doesn't work.
Hero Of StrangerVille
It's also possible to make your Sim the Hero of Strangerville without finishing the story by using Traits.Equip_Trait HeroOfStrangerVille.
In Strangerville, there are strange plants all over. You can use testingcheats to shift-click the plants and put them into a fully bloomed state, allowing you to more quickly harvest their 'strange fruit'. It is possible to nurture them to get the fruit later in the story but this could let you take complete control over the plant and harvest them over and over.
StrangerVille Mystery Cheats
Two Ways to Advance The Story: Without Mods
Solving the Strangerville Mystery is a big part of the pack so you don't want to spoil it. However on future runs, you may want to complete this story so that you can move in families in new games without going through the entire process. For that reason I'll point out that you can use testingcheats and type bb.showhiddenobjects - this can let you go into buy mode and search for evidence parts that are normally collected by investigating in the world. Try searching dongle, report, and photo for example. Those that count will say, "Collect 15 pieces of evidence". Not sure if you're able to just buy a Dossier and lab keycard to skip those parts, but a Hazmat suit can also be found in the debug menu and may help you speed up on future save files. I tested and confirmed that they count toward your progress on the investigation as well as for the aspiration aptly titled, 'Strangerville Mystery'.
Storyline Progression With AllCheats Mod
Without TwistedMexi's all cheats mod, found here, you cannot continue the story via cheats. It gets much easier to go to any act with the mod. I'll be updating this page with a few more later tonight, when I can confirm they are working. For now:
narrative.start_narrative narrative_strangetown_act1 - Puts the world in Act 1.
narrative.start_narrative narrative_strangetown_act2 - Puts the world in Act 2.
narrative.start_narrative narrative_strangetown_act3 - Puts thet world in the final act.
narrative.start_narrative narrative_strangetown_act4 - Finishes the storyline and makes everyone normal.
secret_lab.reset_lab, secret_lab.reveal_next_section and secret_lab.reveal_all_sections may also be useful to you for storytelling purposes.
I'd like to point out you can't get past the door without a key card, except for with teleportation. To get a keycard, you can use testingcheats on, bb.showhiddenobjects, then go into build mode on your home lot and search for secret. Place it on the ground and put it in your Sim's inventory. This may also work with the dossier if you're in the step where you need it.
