How To Edit Family Relationships In Sims 4
The Sims has gone a long way, from its first release back in 2000. The game has changed so many times, but one thing stays the same. It’s a life simulation game and like in real life your Sim should have a family. In this article, we’ll show you how to edit family relationships in Sims 4. Let’s get these sims related.
Start from adding a new Sim
This first step is quite easy. This way is relevant only for new families. In the next paragraph, you’ll find how to edit family relationships in cas.
To add a new Sim you simply need to click the icon in the lower left corner, as shown in the image below. Further, you should choose its traits, aspirations, appearance, clothes, etc. Keep in mind that there can be up to eight Sims in one family.
After you have created at least two Sims (it’s a family right?), you’ll be given the option to define the relationship between them. Just click on the edit relationship button, which is right from the voice selection (as on the picture below).
The relationships compatible with your Sim depend on its age. In general, you can choose from these:
- husband/wife (sex does not matter)
Genetically adding a Sim
If you ever wanted to feel like Victor Frankenstein, this is your glory hour. When you have roommates or husband and wife, you can create a child. Literally, play with genetics.
So here you can click your way through the perfect combo you need.
How to edit family relationships in cas?
Here is the interesting part. For instance, you already have a full-grown family and maybe you’ve just got bored and want to mix things up. Perhaps change places father and son. Your fantasies are free to go wild. If you try hard enough you can make a plot for a broken time continuum film.
- Enable your cheat codes
If you have played Sims at least once, 99% you are already familiar with the most basic Sims cheat combination Ctrl+Shif+C. Here the first step is no different.
After this combo, you’ll have the magic bar, where you’ll need to write down testingcheats on+enter.
- Enter cas
Then write down cas.fulleditmode+enter. Afterward, you can click on your Sim and choose to Modify in cas.
When clicking on it, you’ll see your Sim editorial room and you’ll find the edit relationship button in the same place, near the voice selection. But this time you have all the variants you want.
After editing the relationship status, you must also edit the relationship level.
- Modify relationship levels
For this you need to type the testingcheats on+enter again, just to make sure it’s on! Now get ready for the tricky part.
Type down modifyrelationship (name of target Sim) (you sim name) (the number you want to add to the relationship level) Friendship_Main.
The number you put can also be with a minus, then it will subtract from the relationship level. Make sure you write down their full names.
Before submitting the cheat, copy it. You’ll need to do the same, but change the places of names. For example, modifyrelationship (you sim name) (name of target Sim) (the number you want to add to the relationship level) Friendship_Main
This way you can edit the whole family tree in Sims 4.
These are the ways. Surely there are a lot of different variants, especially with the Genetics play. But once you get the basics, you can make it more interesting or even strange every time. Hope you’ll be having a lot of fun!
