Sims 4 Move Objects House Overhead View

Just like every other game in its series, The Sims 4 contains a wide variety of customization options that players can use to construct their dream home. But even with all these options, players still have to work under a few constraints. Namely, they do not have the ability to move objects up off the ground unless it is attached to a wall. However, through the use of cheats, players can easily bypass this restriction. This guide will inform players on how to move objects up and down in The Sims 4.

To fully take advantage of the y-axis when decorating your house, you will have to utilize the bb.moveobjects cheat. You can activate it in the cheat text box, which you can open up by hitting the Ctrl+Shift+C keys all at once. By typing bb.moveobjects on in the text box and hitting Enter, you will gain the ability to place objects virtually anywhere within the environment. You can even clip different objects into each other through this cheat. Even though Prima Guides suggests that players enable cheats with the testingCheats true command before entering bb.moveobjects on, it’s not necessarily a requirement.

Break the boundaries

Upon activating the cheat, you can lift any object off the ground by hitting the ‘9 key’ repeatedly. If players feel they have raised the object too high, they can incrementally lower it by hitting the ‘0 key.’ Once the height is appropriately set, you can hold the ‘Alt key’ down to place the object in a more precise location outside the grid.

With this cheat, you can make the most out of the house customization in The Sims 4 and move objects freely without having to worry about any pesky limitations. This should allow you to conjure up some exceptionally wild creations if you wish. The Sims 4 has been around for a time, but it still should have plenty to give.
