Don't have time to date with a demanding career? Are your Sims' friendships falling by the wayside? Then here are some handy Sims 4 relationship cheats to bring your Sims closer together.

Building relationships is hard. Not just in real life, but in Sims 4, too. It can take precious hours to small talk with others enough so they like you, which is why we've cherrypicked this specific kind of cheat.

While we're on the subject, here's some other cool stuff for the Sims 4. We have a ton more Sims content to keep you occupied - here's a rundown of the latest Kits, Moonlight Chic and Little Campers, and the latest pack: Werewolves.

How To Use Sims 4 Relationship Cheats

Before doing anything else, you'll need to allow the use of cheats in the Sims 4. This is super simple to do.

  • Open up the cheat box by doing one of the following, depending how you're playing:
    • PC: Ctrl + Shift + C
    • Mac: Command + Shift + C
    • Console: All Four Triggers
  • Then, enter testingcheats true or testingcheats on
  • In the cheat box, it will say that cheats are now allowed. If it doesn't, try the other cheat to the one you entered.

Now you can use cheats! For these specific ones, the scale goes from -100 to +100. This covers the absolute extremes of Sim relationships, from burning hatred to total infatuation. Depending on what type and intensity of relationship you want, you can put whichever number you want. 0 is the neutral ground where Sims don't have any relationship with each other.

Note that to bring a negative relationship into a positive one, you'll need to add however much the relationship is in the negative by, to the total you want it to become. For instance, say your Sim is at -17 with Eliza Pancakes, but you want them to be totally in love - you'd need to set the cheat to 117 to get it to +100.

Oh, you also need to be controlling the Sim you're changing the relationships of, and have them as the first name. Now, on with the cheats!

Sim To Sim Romantic Relationship

To adjust a relationship with a romantic counterpart, this is the cheat you'll need. The brackets don't need to go in it:

  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Sim name] [number] LTR_Romance_Main
  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Sim name] [-number] LTR_Romance_Main

An example is:

  • ModifyRelationship Bella Goth Mortimer Goth 50 LTR_Romance_Main

This would change their Bella's relationship with Mortimer to a positive relationship at number 50.

Sim To Sim Friendship

A similar cheat is needed for frienships:

  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Sim name] [number] LTR_Friendship_Main
  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Sim name] [-number] LTR_Friendship_Main

An example of this is:

  • ModifyRelationship Bella Goth Dina Caliente -100 LTR_Friendship_Main

This will set Bella and Dina's relationship to pure hatred!

You can also shift and click on a Sim (or animal) you want to befriend. Select 'Cheat Relationship' and then 'Max Friendship'. This works with farm animals, too!

Or, if you don't want to track down a load of Sims, you can create friends with a cheat! The cheat for this is:

  • relationships.create_friends_for_sim

Brand new, randomized Sims will be your chosen Sims' friends immediately. They will appear on your lot, though. Still - a small price to pay for easy friendships!

Sim To Pet Friendship

Sometimes, cats and dogs don't understand that we want to befriend them. So let's use a cheat and make them love us! Or, hate us, if you so wish.

The cheats for this are:

  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Pet name] [number] LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main
  • ModifyRelationship [Sim name] [Pet name] [-number] LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main

And there you go - an instant mans best friend!
