How To Disable The Free Build Mode In Sims 4?
All you need to know about the disabling of the mode in Sims 4 are as follows:
- Firstly, you need to know that this mode is accessible with many of the communities except for the hospitals, police stations, and the hidden shops like Forgotten Grotto and Sylvan Glade.
- You must own the lots to edit them. Many of the lots in the game are accessible and editable without using the above mentioned mode cheats. You have to access them through your neighbourhood.
- There is just a single exception, which is the Science lab because it has the mode already, and it allows you to move the objects around. Once you own a raygun, you would get asked to transform the objects moved so you could easily buy more items from the lab.
- Last but not least, the cheats are turned off once you go through a loading screen.
When using these shortcuts, you might encounter a few issues that are common, so here’s how you can solve them.
There are some things you must keep in mind if you’re sharing your house or a room built with cheats. They are as follows –
- You might not find all the objects from “showhiddenobjects” in your gallery.
- There’s a chance that the hidden lights might not be available while sharing a room. It can only happen when you save and share the complete lot.
- Keep updating the game to make sure that items keep transferring.
- There are more chances of the moveobjects cheat items transferring, but it might not work sometimes.
If you’re unable to access some objects or items in the game then it might be because you’ve placed several objects closely together, which has blocked some other item; thus, you’re unable to access it. In such a case, here’s what to do.
- Place the items you require first, and then enable the moveobjects cheat.
- Before using this shortcut, use the F5 and ALT keys to change the direction or position of the item.
Players who aren’t able to use the computer in the game, it might be because you’ve place items on the computer desk using the moveobjects cheat, and now the slots aren’t compatible with each other, which makes the computer inaccessible. To prevent this from happening, there are two solutions, and the first one is as follows.
- Command your character to sit in front of the computer and then use it because it’s functional that way.
- You must keep an eye on your avatar and set the computer action in queue before they move out of the chair.
The second way is
- Enable the moveobjects cheat code and place the items on the desk wher eyou want.
- Now, shift the desk to a new location.
- By clicking the ALT key, choose an object from the desk, which would make it float in the air.
- Move all the floating items to the desk’s original place in the same way as mentioned above.
- Shift the desk to the same place and now you have a desk with floating items on it, that looks like they are placed on it.
If you change the wallpaper, you might notice that your objects have disappeared suddenly. The reason behind it is that you might have disabled the moveobjects cheat after enabling it, or the cheat was removed after an update, which is why the items might vanish. To solve this issue,
- Enable the cheat before building items.
- You can also undo the cheat to move the items back to their original spot, and now you can activate the cheat.
- Place the wallpaper after this, and ensure that the cheat isn’t disabled.
