Using these previous cheats, there are a lot of ways you can be creative, especially when you’re using the moveobjects cheat. You can combine items together and create new furniture you might not have been able to before. For example, you can place furniture in the same space and create new designs altogether, and create more realistic clutter that doesn't look so perfectly organised.

You can even fuse items together and create new and sleeker-looking pieces altogether. 

Object resizing

When you’ve activated moveobjects, you can also resize items. Either making them bigger or smaller. All you need to do for this is press Shift + [or Shift -]. This won't scale your sims to the newly sized furniture. Instead, they'll treat it as though it is its normal size.
