The Sims 4 CAS full edit mode is a new feature that allows you to make more precise edits on your Sims than ever before found in mods. When using CAS full edit mode cheats, you can access everything from the select-tool CAS panel, including Create A Sims standard features.
It is possible to change every aspect of your CAS Sim now, including CAS basic stats, CAS facial features, CAS hair colors, and CAS hairstyles. You can even change your sim’s age. CAS full edit mode (FEM) is not active by default, so you’ll need to turn the cheats on if you want to use the new features and make detailed edits on your Sims.
Why Use CAS Full Edit Mode in The Sims 4 CAS?
There are many valid reasons to use CAS full edit cheat codes in The Sims 4 CAS. We’ve found it best to explain CAS FEM by comparing the difference between CAS full edit and CAS standard editing.
Electronic Arts limited the number of variables that you can modify in the CAS option found in the base game. CAS standard editing doesn’t allow you to change facial features either, and CAS hair is limited to only a few styles, color, and length options. CAS full edit, on the other hand, allows you to modify CAS fundamental values, including facial features, hair, eye color, skin details, and clothing for all of the sims in the game.
By using cheats in full edit, you can edit the age, walk style, aspirations, and traits, edit relationships, switch households, modify motive decay, create a pregnant sim, change body type of sims- essentially everything that can be changed when initially creating sims.
In addition to that, if there are sims in the game that you don’t like or want to remove, CAS FEM cheats will enable you to delete sims in CAS without being forced to begin anew by creating new sims.
CAS FEM cheats also allows you to perform complete edits to your sims. For example, you can edit relationships for the selected sim or you can set all of the sims to happy moods.
The Sims 4 contains thousands of items to interact with, but it lacks enough clothing and features to please the entirety of The Sims community. The game can be made more enjoyable with the help of the Sims 4 CAS cheat and custom content. The CAS cheat is the only way to mod sims as you see fit for a more immersive effect.

Basic Troubleshooting for Full Edit Mode
If the cheat window doesn’t open, make sure you are pressing the correct cheat console combination buttons simultaneously for the platform you are playing on. The correct command for PC is to press C + Shift + CTRL, Xbox One uses LT + RT + LB + RB, and for PlayStation 4 you press L1 + R1 + L2 + R2.
If Full edit mode does not turn on, ensure that both commands typed into the console were entered exactly and spelled correctly. The first command is “testingcheats true”, with the quotes removed. The second command that you enter is “cas.fulleditmode” again with no quotation marks.
Adding the script to your mods folder is not enough to enable the FEM cheats. You must first enable script mods (cheats) through the command console, using “testingcheats true” every time you start a new game session. It is unnecessary to enter the command “cas.fulleditmode” every time because it will remain active until turned off.
Make sure you are holding down the correct button before you select the object or sim you want to mod. On PC, you hold the Shift button, then left-click your selection. On Xbox One, hold down the B button and use A to click on your target, and for Playstation for click the object with X while holding down O.
CAS Fulleditmode Not Working With the Latest Updates?
The latest patch for The Sims 4 has caused conflicts with many mods and the full edit mode cheat may not work as described. There is a workaround for this issue in which you clone a sim and gain access to the full edit features.
The steps for the workaround are as follows:
- Make sure that the family you wish to mod is not loaded in the game world.
- Navigate to the “Household Management option” in the game options menu.
- Locate the family you want to edit and click on the pencil icon.
- Select “New Sim” from the “CAS Click” option.
- Choose “Play With Genetics.”
- Change the relationship status to “Siblings.”
- Select “Randomize Twin” to create an identical sim that you will be able to edit fully.
You can choose to either keep the old sim in your world and continue playing with it or delete it entirely and use only the sim you just created.
