The above codes should work on whatever device you’re using. However, there are a couple of differences between using a PC/Mac or a console when using cheats.

  • Disabling Achievements/Trophies: As we’ve already mentioned, once you activate testingcheats on console, achievements will be disabled for the current save game. However, build mode cheats do not require the “testingcheats”, so they’re all fair game.

  • moveobjects: With an object selected, use the L2 (PS4/PS5) and LT (Xbox) buttons to toggle between full tile, half tile, quarter tile, and free placement.
