The Sims is a life-based simulation game where you manage a single Sim, or a family of Sims, as they work, play and grow. The newest edition, Sims 4, was released in September 2014, features 14 pieces of additional content as well as an easy to use cheat system that can provide hours of experimentation and customization.

Sims 4 Pregnancy Cheat

Sims 4 Cheats
Time to make Ghost Babies!

While turning your Sim pregnant is easy we wanted to offer a spooky example of combining cheat codes! So we added a pregnancy to a Ghost Sim! Haunting!

First, we need a Sim Ghost. They appear between the hours of 10 pm and 6 am.  They are rare but the more urns and tombstones on your lot the more likely chance of an other-worldly visitor. Use the Sims 4 item cheat, bb.showhiddenobjects, to add some!

Or we can turn a Sim into a ghost for 4 hours with the cheat code sims.add_buff Ghostly.

To add babies use one of the following cheat codes.

Cheat CodeEffect
sims.add_buff buff_Pregnancy_InLaborMake your sims go into labor
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester1Make your sims go into 1st trimester pregnancy
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester2Make your sims go into 2nd trimester pregnancy
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester3Make your sims go into 3rd trimester pregnancy

Now this is just an aesthetic option for your ghost Sims, they won’t give birth to a ghost baby. However, combining cheats can be very useful for designing or torturing your Sims in the future.
