The list below consists of cheats for The Sims Medieval . If you happen to know of a cheat that isn’t listed, I’d be glad to add it! Just head on over to the Contact Us page and fill out the form (I would need to know the name of the game and the description of the cheat).

During the game, hit CTRL+SHIFT+C to bring up the Cheat Box. Type one of the following and hit Enter.

Testing Cheats
In order to use testingcheatsenabled true in The Sims Medieval, you’ll need to navigate to your Sims install folder, typically in Program Files/Electronic Arts. Once there, head to: The Sims Medieval\GameData\Shared\NonPackaged\Ini\ Edit Commands.ini

EA made the file read-only, so you’ll need to undo that by right-clicking the file and choosing properties. Untick read-only. You can now open the file with notepad. Change TestingCheatsEnabled=0 to TestingCheatsEnabled=1

Now you can save the file, and you’ll have access to more powerful commands through the cheat menu. Note the warning EA placed in the configuration file. You can mess up your game, but I’m sure you’re a very responsible cheater, right? Here are some of the more interesting commands found there. To see them all, type help.

  • MoveObjects On or Off – Removes placement constraints
  • DisableRespos – No more daily responsibilities! EnableRespos to turn them back on
  • setKingdomPoints # (or just SetKP #) – Give yourself RP to place buildings.
  • setQP # – Set your Quest points to allow for more questing before a Kingdom Ambition is completed
  • setmood min, max, or supermax – Boost or Tank your Sim’s Focus meter. I believe setmood 0 will change it back.
  • ShowAllQuests – ALL Quests will appear in your quest list
  • ShowAllValidQuests – Any quest you’d be eligible for will appear in the quest list
  • DiableClothingFilter – disables clothing category filters

Shift-Clicking Cheats
If you shift-click on a Sim, you can set their relationship levels, change traits, and profession levels. This is the closest we can get to an experience cheat, being able to promote a hero’s level manually. Shift-clicking the ground will enable teleportation and the ability to build on any lot. Clicking the mailbox does nothing in this incarnation of The Sims.

Control-clicking a Quest objective (the one next to the meter) will automatically advance the quest. This can be a good workaround if you are stuck due to an in-game bug. Reports of this happening are not very widespread, but if it happened this could get someone out of a jam!

Additionally, you can drag relationship bars and the Hunger/Energy bars in the interface.
