How to free rotate items in The Sims 4

Give yourself some rotational freedom.

When building and designing your home in The Sims 4, rotating objects will be a tool that you will need to master. You’re going to need to make sure that your furniture is facing the right way, in the right place, to really bring it all together. It’s just a simple home design.

One of the easiest ways of rotating objects in the game is using free rotation, which can be easily accomplished if you know what to do.

Now, you can easily rotate items by left-clicking on the item and then right-clicking. This will turn the item 45 degrees. The only downside is that you have to abide by those 45-degree marks and won’t be able to have the furniture rotated anywhere in between.

You can also use the “,” and “.” keys to turn the furniture as you wish, but that is limited by the specific 45-degree angles as well.

Using the Sims 3 camera

However, you can easily have full control of your items by using the Sims 3 camera. This can be done by simply press Ctrl+Shift+Tab to switch camera modes. You can also head into the game’s menu, go to the Controls & Camera, and check the box next to The Sims 3 Camera.

With that turned on, just simply hold down Alt and click-and-drag your mouse to rotate any object in any direction. You can rotate into any angle, direction, and set-up that you wish, making designing much more free and creative.
