This video is a Sims 4 speed build. A new cheat was added to the game recently — bb.showliveeditobjects. This makes world objects appear in build & buy mode that aren’t normally available for placement on user-created lots. Objects unlocked by this cheat include billboards, cars, various types of fencing, etc. And, as you can tell from my screenshots, shipping containers!

This cheat is different than the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat, which allows you to place items that your Sims interact with, such as food, blocks and tools. In order to use either of these cheats, you must first input “testingcheats on” into the cheat console. The cheat console is accessed on PC by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+C.


Mansions and quaint homes are popular builds, but what about a shabby, run-down one?

This build was inspired by the novel and movie, Ready Player One. The main character’s home neighbourhood is described as being trailers stacked on top of one another. When I saw these shipping containers, I was reminded of this description.
