When you play The Sims, one of your virtual characters may stop doing anything out of the blue for no apparent reason.
They will do nothing except stand there and defy any command you give them to move in any direction.
You are not required to exit the game in order to solve this issue; rather, you can choose to reset your Sims in order to make them stop being glitchy.
This is despite the fact that this is highly frustrating.
Method of Shift-Clicking
The shift-click approach is the first option available when attempting to reset a Sim.
In order to use this, you must first enable cheats by opening the cheat dialogue box by pressing Ctrl + Shift + C, putting in testingcheats true into the cheat box, and then hitting enter on your keyboard.
This will allow you to utilize cheats.
This trick makes it possible for all other cheats, including the reset cheat, to take effect.
The next step is to go up to the sim you want to reset and click on them while holding down the shift key.
Then you will need to select the option to Reset Sim (Debug), and doing so will cause your sim to be reset.
Method of the Cheat Code
Instead of shift-clicking on the Sims, you may also use a cheat code to reset their lives.
This is an alternative method.
In order to accomplish this, you will also need to ensure that your testingcheats true cheat is activated.
This will guarantee that any cheats you use will be successful.
After that, you will need to go to the cheat box and type in resetSim Firstname Lastname before hitting the enter key.
Therefore, if you wanted to reset Bob Pancakes, the cheat that you would use would be resetSim Bob Pancakes, and then you would hit enter after typing it in.
If you want the cheat to work, you need to make sure that their name is spelled correctly and that all of the letters are capitalized properly.
What Takes Place When a Sim Is Reset?
When you utilize one of these hack options to reset a sim, that sim will either stop sitting or lying down if that is what they were doing, or it will simply tremble slightly before being reset.
This will remove whatever was in their queue as well as any whims or moodlets that they had, and it will fully reset them as if nothing had been happening previously.
Annoying Sims are no longer!
In “The Sims 4”, you now have the ability to delete all of your saved games and start again with fresh characters, so get ready to have some fun!
