How to access the world objects in Sims 4

The July 2019 patch opened up every single environment object to us and I could not be happier! Accessing the objects is very simple. I uploaded a short video showing how to do it, written instructions are below the video:

  1. Bring up the cheat box by holding down CTRL, Shift and C
  2. Type in bb.showliveeditobjects and hit Enter/Return
  3. Click on the search box in the bottom left so your cursor shows but do not type anything. Hit Enter/Return
  4. The catalogue will change to Show All. Scroll down to the bottom then slowly back up to see all the world objects.

You DO NOT need to enter any other cheats. No need for the testingcheats and bb.showhiddenobjects cheats or any others (apart from bb.moveobjects on, that one is always necessary 🙂 ).

Mac patch

Good news! Today’s patch (16/07/19) has resolved the Trackpad gesture issues introduced in the June patch. But of course there’s bad news too, the following significant Mac bugs are still not fixed:

Come on EA, it’s starting to feel like Sims 3 all over again…..

Sims 4 does not currently run in the macOS Catalina beta

Before you rush to install the public beta of Catalina, be aware that the Sims 4 does not currently run in this new OS. This is because of the ActivationUI file which is still 32-bit and 32-bit is no longer supported. EA fixed this in the April ’19 patch but unfortunately had to roll it back in the subsequent hot fix patch as it rendered the game unplayable for all users running 10.7 Lion..

If you are desperate to install a beta version of the operating system on your Mac then make sure to install Mojave on an external drive or install a VM so you can still play Sims 4 and 32-bit apps.
