Influencer Side-Hustle

One of the new part-time jobs or 'side-hustles' in High School Years is the Simfluencer. As the name suggests, this will have Sims making videos and reviews of their life, taking selfies, and influencing those around them.


These cheats will promote and demote them in their career:

Entrepreneur Skill

High School Years has added a new skill for Sims to work on: the Entrepreneur skill. This is gained from selling items like art, outfits, or even just going to work.


This skill cheat works on teens and adults and will raise the skill to your desired level from 1-5, depending on which number you put in:

  • stats.set_skill_level adultminor_entrepreneur [Number 1-5]

There's also this cheat, to get an extra boost on your career with The Knowledge trait:

  • traits.equip_trait trait_entrepreneur_theknowledge

After-School Activities

Sims after-school activities

Another new addition with the High School Years expansion pack is the after-school activities that Sims can join. These are not viewable, and work like jobs, so are rabbit holes where Sims will attend alone and return home afterward.

The three activities are Cheer, Football, and Chess Team. You can promote your Sims in each activity using these cheats, and get some benefits:

Sentiment Cheats

In High School Years, there are wants and fears back again, and some of these are linked to social standing and sentiments between Sims. These were added way back near the game's release, but there are a few new ones added in the high school pack.

You can use these cheats to modify relationships between Sims, and create Sentiments between them. You'll need to use this cheat, followed by the codes below:

  • modifyrelationship [Sim 1] [Sim 2] 100 sentimenttrack_

For example, let's say you want Sidney Price and Molly Prescott to be good friends. You could use the following:

  • modifyrelationship Sidney Price Molly Prescott 100 sentimenttrack_close_lt_twopeasinapod

This will form the 'Two Peas in a Pod' sentiment between them. Here are the other Sentiment cheats you can add to the end of the cheat:
