Now as we are pretty much clear about the game, let’s get to the point. Once the house is filled with 4 sims, you have to buy a new home to accommodate the upcoming sims in it. Moving on to the point that is how can we add a sim to a household in sim 4? Two ways can be used to add a sim in the household.
Either we can add the sims to an already built house or the other possibility is to add the sim in a newly created house. Many cheat codes are used by the player but these are not as customizable as the white methods.
Adding a sim to an existing household:
Let’s say you have just started gaming and you haven’t collected enough money to buy a new house. If you are new, you will face difficulty but don’t worry. Now, what strategy you should apply? In order to add a sim that already existing household, all you need to do is to create a good friendship between two sims.
One sim out of them will interact with the other in a good manner to move to the household.
There’s another case. Let’s say there is a sim A and a sim B from two different homes. Now, if you want to move sim A to the house of sim B, all you need to do is to make them nice to each other. If they create a good relation, it will be very easy for sim A to migrate.
If the sims complete the scale blue scale of nice friends, you will ultimately get the option to move in. Just make sure that sim B invites sim A to move in the house or that sim A makes a request.
Adding a sim to household from the gallery:
Now, once you are done making a sim from the creating mode, all you need to do this to go to the top right corner. Select the option ‘add to gallery’ or you can also use F4 to open the gallery. Once you click F4, you will see three options on the screen that is Home, Community, and Library.
On selecting the community option, you will find several options in the top left corner. By selecting this, you can check the category of the sims in the household. Once you click the sims, you will see some icons.
Drag your mouse to the right bottom and there will appear three options i.e., Merge, replace and cancel. These options function according to their names.
The merge option merges sim to the current house of a sim. The replace option will replace the household. You can click on the option you want.
And there you go! The sim will be automatically downloaded to the gallery. Just remember this, the imported sims do not appear in the library. To keep them in your game, just select the option of ‘save the household in my library’.
Adding a sim by using cheating codes:
Sometimes, professional gamers also use the cheat codes in the game to enter the sim in the house.
All you need to do is hold and press “Ctrl + Shift + C” and then a message box will appear in the top left corner of the screen. First of all, you have to enable the cheating codes. For that, just type ‘testing cheats true’ and an option of cheating code enabled or activated will appear on the screen.
Now, press the ESC key and the chat box will disappear. Next, hold the shift key and click the sim you want to add, select add to the family. You can follow the same process to remove the sim.
