Does the debug cheat not work on console?

I tried using the show hidden objects cheat but nothings showing up and when I go to see if it works when I search debug it bugs the search bar

    It should work. Have you filtered by debug or only searched?

    Type in cheat. go to search, leave it blank and hit enter, wait for it to load everything up, it will freeze while doing this. Once everything is loaded, filter by debug.

    Just tested it, it's working for me. Maybe try restarting your game?

    I type in the "bb.showhiddenobjects" and then search for what I'm looking for. I wish it was easier.

    So first, you have to enter “testingcheats on”, you only have to use this cheat once per save file, all it does is disactivate the trophies I think so you can use cheats. You can’t undo this action on your save file just a heads up..

    Once this is done, you need to enter the debug cheat every time you go into buy/build mode. Do the cheat “bb.showhiddenobjects”, no command will come up at all in the cheat box, this is normal.

    Choose “show all” in buy mode, then press square ( to bring up filters for searching, pretty sure it’s square button), under “content” choose the debug option.

    Now you have debug items. It doesn’t load the whole debug menu by default, to do this do an empty search (hit L2 and press enter)

    Hope this helps, it took me a while to figure it out as it’s a little more finicky than on PC

    ^ They're right, but testingcheats isn't required for the debug cheat in case you still want to earn trophies.

    Ah yes thank you guys so much I started my console up again and it worked and to try it out I used a different save file but thank you all for helping

    I want to look at the full menu of DEBUG but I'm playing on PS4. There isn't an option for Debug under "Content" once I put in the cheats. So maybe there's a difference per console.

    I had problem at first on PS4, because I tried searching for debug items typing "debug" in the search bar.
    That way I didn't find anything.
    But they showed up using filters.

    I'm getting some objects but I was hoping for food and plants and stuff. All I got is collectables and some furniture and that's it. I have Xbox one. I don't have the debug option under content.

    I can't access debug at all.

    Can someone type out how to do so on PS4 and Xbox without and with Keyboard? It would be much appreciated.

    Yea I also can't seem to find a lot of debug objects. I'm on ps4 as well. I do everything necessary for the items to show but I cant see anything extra. I'm mainly looking for debug columns to use.

    I'm on ps4. I've found the only way to get the majority of live edit objects to show up is to do a search but do not type anything in the search box and do NOT filter by debug.

    Ok that seemed to work. Thank you. Just one last thing, how do I rotate objects on a different axis if I'm on ps4? I want to rotate columns to be horizontal.
  • animevampanimevamp Posts: 92 Member
    @Trippy_M1nt you can't rotate items that way without the tool mod. Try searching tool mod on the gallery. You might find some stuff you like.
