The Sims 4: Editing Hidden Lots Cheat Explained

41
87,948

The recent Sims 4 Patch included a brand new cheat that allows you to edit “hidden lots” such as Sylvan Glades and the Hospital from The Sims 4 Get to Work. To understand the basics – and complications – of the cheat, EA has sent us over some official information to help guide you while you use it.

With the bb.enablefreebuild cheat enabled, you are able to construct on and edit lots that are otherwise locked in the game. This cheat is fairly complicated, so if you mess around with the lots too much, you have the potential of breaking your career advancement – the doctor can’t exactly X-ray people if you delete the X-ray Machine.

While any changes you make to the hidden lots has the potential of causing problems, EA has put together an official list of items to include on those lots, to help reduce the risk of game play issues.

❗ PLEASE NOTE: Even when using the bb.enablefreebuild cheat carefully, it still has the potential to interfere with career progression and other game play features related to the lot.
