Debug cheat on PS4 Not working

«1
When I play Sims 4 on the PS4, I open the cheat window and enter testingcheats true. Then I enter bb.showhiddenobjects to bring up the hidden objects in build/buy mode. But when I enter debug in the search for item box, none of the debug items show up. And get the item not found message instead.

    You have to go to the item filters, not search box. In the filters, there should be an option for "debug" after you type the cheat in.

    After you enter bb.showhiddenobjects and turn on the debug filter, if you search "apple" or "fruit" it should come up. Sometimes I like to type in one letter A-Z just to see what else I can find :smile:

    I'm struggling with this. So, after entering bb.showhiddenobjects, Debug is an option in the Filter? I can't seem to find it.

    to see all debug items on ps4 !!!!!!! B) B) B)

    you just have to use the cheat bb.showhiddenobjects and then open the search bar and leave it empty (just confirm with R2) and then set the filter of the search to hidden (R2 -> content -> hidden)

    I hope my bad English is enough to understand it :# :/ :#

    If your on console and want all the items you have to put in the cheat bb.showhiddenobjects then go to "objects by function" press show all. After that go to "filter items" (press R2) then go to content and press "debug" after that go to the search bar and search "unknown" and all the objects should appear.

    I"m one of the ones it's not working for. I don't even see debug when I type it in the search bar after entering the cheat and I also type in testingcheats enabled true before going into CAS.

    SimGuruLegacy says their looking into this issue.

    You don't type debug in the search bar on console. You have to use the filter under the content section. It's also one that doesn't require testingcheats.

    Yep.. you can use the Debug filter or you can type 'Unknown' in the search bar to get some items as well. I don't think all items show up for either though. Seems to me little things like the toothbrush and fruit show up when you type in unknown and the collectible items are all that show up under debug. .. not really sure about that.

    So it's unknown.

    For console users, type 'help' in the cheat bar to bring up a list of available cheats. bb.showhiddenobjects does not exist for console versions of TS4, meaning debug content is not available in TS4 PS4/XBox One.

    Scratch that, it has to be entered in live mode, then go to build mode, decorations, miscellaneous decor, then scroll down. A ton of miscellaneous decor becomes visible from past events, like sugar skulls, a time capsule, fire opal, fossils, diamond, fish tanks, etc.

    Also good to note that you do not have to have testingcheats enabled to use bb.showhiddenobjects. Many cheats actually work without testingcheats on and do not disable achievements. Others that I know work without disabling achievements. 'bb.moveobjects, resetsim, Traits.equip_trait.' Those are the only cheats I can confirm that work but many others might as well. Haven't tried because really all I care about is Moveobjects.

    You must do both cheats in buy/build mode:

    Testingcheats on
    Bb.Showhiddenobjects

    Directly after each other, without exiting the cheat bar. Then go into show all items, press R2 for filters and under “content” is “debug”. You’ll see the catalogue changes to debug items.

    You must re enter the debug cheat every time you come out of build mode.

    Searching for fruits is tricky, not all come up by name in search. If you do a blank search once you have done the previous setup, (so press L2 and then enter) it brings up the full debug menu. (The full debug menu doesn’t load by default) If you scroll half way through you start to come up with plantables. Good news is they are all pretty much together once you get to them.

    Not really noob thing.. Nobody talks about it.. Does't seem like most people even know about it. If you google console cheats they all start witht the instructions to turn on testing cheats. I only found out about it by accidently inputing a bb. command without turning on testing cheats first. All bb. cheats can be used without disabling achievements.. So you can also enable bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement, bb.showhiddenobjects, bb.showliveeditobjects and have all the fun you want with those as well.

    I do the exact same thing.. I have my "build / mess around" save and my "actual game" save. I'll build the house using cheats in one save, put it in my library and then download it to the other save. :p

    I play on the Xbox version,I thought it wasn’t working but I was typing in the object wrong 😂. For me it was under unknown. There was no debug.
