The Sims 4 FAQ: Can Sims be Left Handed?

can sims be left handed

The Sims 4 is an awesome game that allows players to be the creators of their Sims and change their traits and personality as they wish from the CAS screen.

But certain traits are locked or hidden and gamers can’t access them. Instead, the game automatically assigns them when a new Sim is created. Once such example is the preferred hand use.

Are there any left handed Sims? Sims can be both right handed and left handed. This is actually a hidden trait the game selects randomly. The majority of Sims are right-handed. Left-handed Sims are quite rare.

Nevertheless, there’s a small chance that your Sim could be left-handed. But handedness is very subtle.

To see if your Sim is right handed or left handed, watch them do certain actions like eating, writing, doing household chores or picking up staff. If they predominantly use their left hand, this indicates they’re left handed.

Alternatively, you can use a mod like the showsiminfo mod to display hidden traits and have the confirmation as to whether your Sim is right handed or left handed.

Many users suggested this should not be a hidden. Letting players set this trait themselves would have been a nice touch.

Only time will tell is EA lets gamers change their Sims’ preferred hand use. Speaking of dominant hands, it would be interesting to see if ambidextrous Sims make their appearance in the game. How cool would that be?

How to make your Sim left handed

If you’re not opposed to modding, you can use the two commands listed below to make your Sim predominantly use their left hand:

  • |traits.remove_trait trait_handedness_right
  • |traits.equip_trait trait_handedness_left

All in all, it does not really matter if your Sim uses their left hand as their dominant hand. The most important thing is to have fun playing the game.

And now you know.
