Are you a Sims player who’s experienced a frustratingly long queue of tasks for your Sims to complete? Maybe your Sims have gotten stuck on a task and can’t seem to move on to the next one, or maybe they’re just taking too long to complete everything on their list.
Whatever the case may be, don’t worry; there are ways to clear your Sims queue and get them back on track! In this article, we’ll go over these ways.
What is a Sims Queue?
Before we go into how to clear a Sims queue, let’s first define what it is. A Sims queue is a list of actions that your Sims need to complete. This can include everything from eating a meal to taking a shower to going to work. When you direct your Sims to do something, it gets added to their queue. Sims complete tasks in the order they were added to the queue, although there are some exceptions to this.
Why Clear Your Sims Queue?
So, why would you want to clear your Sims queue? There are a few reasons why you might want to do this. If your Sims have too many tasks in their queue, they may become overwhelmed and start to ignore some tasks.
This can lead to your Sims not fulfilling their needs, which can cause them to become unhappy and unproductive. If your Sims get stuck on a task and can’t move on, clearing their queue can help get them unstuck.
How To Clear A Sims Queue
Now that we’ve covered what a Sims queue is and why you might want to clear it, let’s get into the main topic: how to actually clear it. There are a few different ways you can use it, depending on what’s causing the backlog in your Sims queue.
1. Use The ResetSim Cheat
One of the simplest ways to clear your Sims queue is to use the ResetSim cheat. This cheat is built into the game and allows you to reset individual Sims or the entire world.
When you use the ResetSim cheat on a sim, it will clear the queue and reset it to its default state. This can be helpful if a Sim is stuck on a task and can’t move on.
To use a ResetSim cheat follow the steps below:
- To use the ResetSim cheat, first, open up the cheat console by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C on your keyboard.
- Type in “resetSim Firstname Lastname” (without the quotes), replacing “Firstname Lastname” with the name of the Sim you want to reset.
- Press Enter, and the Sim will be reset.
- If you want to reset the entire world, type in “resetSim *” (without the quotes) instead. This will reset all Sims in the world.
2. Use the TestingCheatsEnabled Cheat
Another cheat you can use to clear your Sims queue is the TestingCheatsEnabled cheat. This cheat allows you to gain access to debug commands that are not available in normal gameplay. One of these commands is the “Reset Object” command, which can be used to reset individual objects (like a Sim’s bed or fridge) and clear their tasks.
How to Use
To use the TestingCheatsEnabled cheat,
1. Open the cheat console by pressing Ctrl+Shift+C on your keyboard.
2. Type in “testingcheatsenabled true” (without the quotes) and press Enter.
3. Now, hold down the Shift key and click on the object you want to reset.
4. Select “Reset Object (Debug)” from the menu that appears. This will reset the object and clear any tasks associated with it.
3. Cancel Tasks Manually
If you don’t want to use cheats, you can also manually cancel tasks in your Sims queue. To do this, just click on the sim whose queue you want to clear and select the task you want to cancel. Click on the red “X” that appears next to the task to cancel it. You can repeat this process for each task you want to cancel.
Keep in mind that canceling tasks manually can take time if your Sim has a lot of tasks in its queue, and worst of all, some tasks (like going to work) cannot be canceled. If you find that manually canceling tasks is not working for you, you may want to try other ways.
4. Use Mods
Finally, if you’re comfortable using mods in your Sims game, there are mods available that can help you clear your Sims queue. One popular mod is the “Cancel All Interactions” mod, which adds a new interaction to your Sim’s menu that allows you to cancel all tasks in their queue with a single click.
With a little bit of patience and experimentation, you’ll be able to find the method that works best for you and your Sims.
