The Sims 4 Seasons Expansion includes some unique tricks in the form of controlling the weather and, of course, you can cheat your way through. Here's a guide to cheating in Seasons and what you'll need to change the weather. Note that to take full advantage of these you will need a mod.
How to Cheat
To use cheats in The Sims 4, press Ctrl + Shift + C to activate and deactivate the console. For almost all of the following cheats, you must then type testingcheats on to enable the ability to use them. These are more advanced tricks normally used to debug the game. Press Enter after typing the trick. You can close the console by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C again or press Esc if the box is in focus.
Skill Tricks: Flower arrangement
Seasons include only one main skill, Flower arranging. Enter stats.set_skill_level major_flowerarranging 10 o stats.set_skill_level adultmajor_flowerarranging 10by replacing 10 with the level you prefer (10 is the maximum).
Career tricks: gardener and scout
There are two career tricks. Firstly, you can increase your Sim's level in the gardening career by using careers.promotegardener.
But that's not all. There is an after-school activity for Children, Scouting. You can cheat and give your Sim level 5 (which will earn him the trait Scouting Aptitude and thus permanent increased skill gains). Type in Careers.promotescout for each level you wish to assign them. This is useful during repeated matches, as it is annoying to get all the badges required for promotion in scouts. It is not difficult, per se, it just takes a little time.
If you wish, you can endow the scouting trait on adults who do not have the opportunity to scout. Enter traits.equip_trait scoutingaptitude to get the skill gain bonuses that only scouts can receive. On that note, there are other traits that can be equipped in Seasons
Trucci Traits of the seasons
If you want to add reward traits directly to your Sim without buying them in the shop, you can add the following traits with the same trick traits.equip_trait X we used for the scouting attitude:
|traits.equip_trait coldacclimation||Cold acclimatisation: increases resistance to cold|
|traits.equip_trait heatacclimation||Heat acclimatisation: increases resistance to heat|
|traits.equip_trait burningman||Heat resistant: guarantees immunity to heat|
|traits.equip_trait iceman||Iceproof - provides immunity to cold weather|
|traits.equip_trait stormchaser||Storm chaser: Entertains Sims with thunderstorms.|
Players can change the time if they install TwistedMexi's All Cheats Mod (Support it on Patreon if you like). You MUST take the .ts4script file and put it in your Electronic Arts> The Sims 4> Mods folder and in the game options> more select Script Mods Allowed. Restart the game and the mod will enable these commands.
The trick to changing the weather is simply weather.start_weather_event event_code. There is a long list of possibilities here, but most players will be happy to know the following:
