There are three different modes in The Sims 4: Create-a-Sim mode, Build mode, and Live mode. You can enter Build/Buy cheats in both Live mode or Build mode, but you must be in Build mode to use them. The Build mode cheats include codes for moving objects, expanding the Build/Buy catalog, and more.
Unlike hacking or cheating, which is never allowed, cheats are available to all players to use as they wish on applicable servers (assuming they have permission from the server operator). Playing on a cheat-enabled server does not influence a player's gameplay statistics, and achievements cannot be earned during that time. Items still randomly drop even if a server is set to sv_cheats 1.
The impulse command is used for both cheats and non-cheats (the most common non-cheat being paint spray, which is impulse 201). The impulse command must be followed by a number, such as impulse 101. Different numbers have different effects, as listed below.
Power play is a hidden command that grants Valve employees the ability to cheat on any server. (Even if sv_cheats is off). Two covertly named console commands condump_on and condump_off are used to toggle power play. If there is any string after the powerplay command is executed, (for example, condump_on 1) it activates powerplay for the whole team the developer is on rather than only the developer issuing the command. When activated, power play grants all Medi Gun effects at once. This includes damage invulnerability from the Medi Gun; 100% critic
