How to reset stuck Sims in the Sims 4

The Sims 4 Skin Tone Update revealed

If you’ve been playing The Sims 4 long enough, you will inevitably encounter an issue where a Sim refuses to move or respond to commands. This is a common issue and things need to be fixed. There are a few commands you can make use of to do this. The game is pretty simple, but you will need to be aware of some things.

Here are some things to keep in mind when you reset stuck Sims in the Sims 4:

  • These methods work for all sims, not just ones you are controlling directly.
  • The Sim will not return to its home lot, but will become playable.
  • Resetting a stuck sim will remove any of their active wishes and moodlets

There are two methods for handling this problem, both involving the in-game console. For both methods, you need to start by opening the cheat console.

You can open the cheat window by pressing CTRL + Shift + C. From there, you can use either of the two methods listed below.
