Follow these steps to open the cheat bar/menu:

    • For PC players, hit the Tab button to open the Cheat command bar.
    • Xbox players need to press LB, RB, X, and Y buttons to open the cheat bar.
    • Lastly for the PS players, hit the L1, R1, Square, and Triangle buttons to open the command bar.
  • As your cheat menu prompts, you need to manually type settimeofday (required time).
  • While the cheat doesn’t mandatorily need to be case-sensitive, make sure of the spaces between them.
  • Also, if you want to change the time to afternoon, evening, or night you have to set it according to the military time.

  • Some examples include, SetTimeOfDay 07:30, SETTIMEOFDAY 22:30, or SettimeofDay 13:45:54.
  • Once you enter the cheat, the time around the world will change in an instant.
  • But using this cheat code has its understandable limitations.
