Sims 4 Death by Fire Cheat

You may not be aware but your Sim can probably die in a fire initiated by the Sim itself. As a natural reflex, whenever there is a fire, your Sim will panic and will try to evacuate the area. If you wish to kill the Sim in the fire, make them stand in it for a while and also make sure that the other Sim does not extinguish the fire.

On the contrary, if you don’t wish for your Sim to die, then put out the fire at the earliest because it spreads faster and can go through walls.

How To Start a Fire in Sims 4

Following are some of the ways through which you can initiate a fire

  • In order to initiate a fire, make use of a low cooking skill on a cheap stove.
    Then put on the fireplace and place rugs underneath it and then simply let the fireplace burn for a very long time.
  • You can also try crashing the rocket ship. For this to work, go on a space journey on your rocket ship and if you wish for it to crash, then simply stuff fruits in the exhaust port. But for this to happen, you must have Mischief skill on level 8.

For this purpose, you can install fire alarms or a sprinkler system in the rooms which have a higher chance of being burnt. You can also insert ‘fire.toggle {on/off}’ in the cheat dialogue box to prevent fires from happening.


Death by Drowning

Killing your Sim by drowning is a time taking process but is doable. You can start by removing the ladder and then placing a fence around the swimming pool.
