Welcome to my blog post, where I’ll be your guide into the world of reseting sims in Sims 4. If you can’t seem to get your sims playing nice and want a fresh start, then this is the blog post for you! Follow along and I’ll show you how easy it can be to reset your sims and get them back on track. Let’s get started!


If you are having trouble with your Sims 4 game, then learning how to reset a Sim may be the solution. Resetting a Sim can help with performance issues, game bugs and glitches, or general unhappiness with your chosen Sim. It’s important to understand the process of resetting a Sim so that you can effectively use this tool when necessary without causing further problems in-game.

In Sims 4, there are two distinct ways to reset a Sim: through an in-game menu option or through an in-game cheat console. Both methods will effectively reset the Sim, but they vary in their application and effectiveness depending on the player’s needs. This guide will explain how to reset a Sim using both methods so that you can choose the right one for your situation:

  • Resetting a Sim through an in-game menu option
  • Resetting a Sim through an in-game cheat console

Reasons for Resetting a Sim

There are several reasons why you may want to reset your Sim in The Sims 4. If your Sim is stuck in a situation and you can’t get them unstuck, performing a reset may solve the problem. Reseting a Sim can also help if you need to realign your skill goals or change a mood, or if you just want to start over with creating a new character. Some players also reset their Sims when they want to adjust their traits or rewards from the Trait and Aspiration System.

Before proceeding, it is important to note that when a Sim’s stats are reset, any rewards they have earned in the Trait and Aspiration System will be gone forever. This includes Rewards Store Points, special items and upgrades that were earned by completing Challenges. Make sure that all rewards have been used before deciding to reset your sim!

Once you are sure that all possible rewards have been utilized, sims can be reset by summoning the hand tool, clicking on the postcard icon at the bottom of your screen, selecting ‘Reset’ from this menu and confirming your choice. It is important to be aware that resets cannot be undone or reversed and should only be used as a last resort after all other solutions have been attempted!

Preparing to Reset a Sim

Before deciding to reset a Sim you should consider the impact this move may have on your game play. Resetting a Sim can create unexpected consequences in the long run that might steer you away from the original story line or objectives of the game. Think about the pros and cons before hitting the reset button.

Before resetting your Sim, it is important to make sure all items associated with them are moved, stored or updated. If there are relationships linked to the Sim, it may be good to delete any intertwined relationships so there are no unexpected issues after the reset process begins. Additionally, make sure that there is no career progress pending or personal inventory items left untouched as those will not transfer over during the reset process.

  • Make sure all items associated with the Sim are moved, stored or updated.
  • Delete any intertwined relationships.
  • Ensure there is no career progress pending.
  • Check that there are no personal inventory items left untouched.

How to reset a sim in sims 4

Too much autonomy can be a bad thing, so sometimes you may be called upon to lightly direct the course of your Sims’ fortunes. Resetting your Sim is easy and can be done in-game. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to reset a Sim in Sims 4:

  1. Navigate to the active household that contains the Sim you wish to reset. You must have access to the Options menu in order to complete this action.
  2. Select ‘Options’ from the lower right corner of your screen, then select ‘Reset Sim‘ from the list of available options.
  3. Choose ‘Reset Selected Sim,’ which will bring up confirmation dialogue and allow you to proceed with reset. Note: This will abandon all existing progress with this particular Sim; there is no way to reverse this action once completed!
  4. Your game will then automatically generate a new aspiration for this Sim, which guides all of their activities for that particular game session and beyond until you choose otherwise. They may also acquire completely different traits compared to what they had before resetting them!

Tips for Resetting a Sim

Resetting a Sim in Sims 4 can be tricky, but it is possible. In some cases, resetting a Sim may be necessary to fix various issues related to game-play or glitches. Whether you need to reset a Sim due to indeterminable lag or because of a problem with a quest, following the steps below can help you get your character back on track.

Before attempting to reset your Sim, make sure that you save your game. You should also take into account the process associated with using Sims 4’s full-scale “reset” feature; doing so will reset all progress made by the player and any progress tracked by the game itself, meaning that there is no way of recovering any lost progress and skipped storyline quests.

To begin the process of resetting your Sim, you can use one of three methods: The Phone ResetSim Command; ResetSim at Home Command; and ResetSim Button in Options Panel. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.

  • Using Phone – This method is considered by many players as the fastest way to reset their Sims since it uses The Sims 4’s cheat console alongside The Phone command prompt tool from within the game world itself; however, this method has limitations since it is limited only to specific Sims that are tied directly to cheat codes loaded in that particular world in which case bugs may occur due to incompatible scripts.
  • ResetSim at Home – Another reliable way for players who want to change their chosen Sim’s characteristics without affecting story progression puzzles or long-term consequences of their current playthroughs is through ResetSim at Home command which comes as part of an update from Maxis/Electronic Arts released in March 2016 called “Maxis’ Fix.” This option saves any conversations had between NPC neighbors and possibilities available when applying certain assignments have been successfully completed without having their entire game affected by its use while allowing them full control over changes they want done on specific sims even if it means wiping out all progress made on its progress up until then though there are those who feel like this tool strongly diminishes real stakes in stories written prior being released such as city expansion packs recently released content updates third party store recolors etc…
  • ResetSim Button in Options Panel – Lastly gamers have access via an external interface known simply as “Options Panel” through (From Inside Game), which gives users direct control over their character’s traits traits values abilities needs motives rewards status etc… This panel allows for adjustments like re-rolls unlimited age changes gender reassignment relationships revivals or even complete erasure among other functions although this one come with few complications compared with phone cheats or commands after versions past 1.19.[1][1] It’s important for gamers to keep track what version number they have for any item before clicking anything else on menu screens because playing too far ahead could result permanent alter behavior already seen during gameplay notably if unlockables were already earned within current runs regardless whether golden pot were obtained or not…

Troubleshooting Common Issues

If you have encountered issues with your game, such as characters getting stuck or items disappearing, the first step should always be to reset the Sim involved. Resetting the Sim will keep them in their original state and in most cases, resolve any underlying issues with their character.

In order to reset a Sim in The Sims 4, start by opening your Sims Dashboard. Once you are inside of the dashboard select “Manage Worlds” and then select “Reset Sim” for the household you wish to reset. After selecting “Reset Sim” you will be presented with two options:

  • The first option is a quick reset which will put all of your Sims back into a playable state while maintaining their current progress.
  • The second option is a full reset which will delete all progress associated with that particular household and return them to their original state.

Before selecting either option it is important to read through all of the information so that you are familiar with what each option does before making a decision on how to proceed.

For those looking for an easy solution to reset their Sim in The Sims 4, there is no one single answer. Different strategies are available depending on what aspect of the Sim or the game environment needs to be reset or changed.

Resetting Sims essentially involves using a combination of features and tools within the game: from moving them out and then back in, using the testingcheats code, combining with cheat codes, or simply deleting and replacing with another copy of a Sim. Ultimately, each user must explore the different tools and options available within The Sims 4 and then decide which strategy works best for their gaming style.
