Life after Retirement

Your Sims' life doesn't end after their retirement. They will not be disappeared, but will still stay as your elders. Elders are similar to your grandparents. They are the oldest member of your family. In The Sims Mobile, elders are Sims with maxed out traits. They cannot consider as elder just because of their longevity in the game.

Once you've decided to retire your Sims, they will no longer be playable, but you can still interact with them and establish stronger relationships. Your playable Sims can earn XPs if you interact with them. They will function as your grandparents that will teach you often about life and everything they know. That is what we called "Mentoring".

After a few weeks, your retired Sim will still bid goodbye and leave. This is the hardest part since you've established a strong bond with your elder, they will still decide to go on a separate way.

What is "Mentoring"?

Mentoring is a means of supporting and encouraging someone. It's a successful way to aid a person to move forward and develop in his/her chosen path.

In latest installation of The Sims Mobile, this social event was introduced. Mentoring is an interaction between your playable Sims and your Elder Sims. It is an event where seniors are passing their knowledge to the young ones and allowing them to earn Hobby or Career XPs.

Mentoring Requirement

The sole requirement to have this kind of social event is to have an Elder Sim. For you to have an Elder Sim, you must retire your playable Sim. Please take note that you can no longer control retired Sims, in addition, retiring a Sim will give you a Heirloom. Click here for more information about retirement.

The elder does not leave the family, but will eventually leave the house. They will leave an empty playable sim space.

I can't complete the Tree of Knowledge quest, because all of my Elders relationships have been blocked. I can't socialize with any of them!

If you don’t have the option to socialize with the elder sim, that means they have died.

You keep playing with the Sim until they max out their traits. A few days after, something will pop up telling you that your sim is ready to retire. You can click retire or not. If you don't click retire but you change your mind you can go into their information where traits are and you will be able to retire from there.

So how about dying? Can you die during retirement? Or will they just move out eventually?

I'm pretty sure they will die. I always move my retired Sims out and after about a week or two their spot in my playable sim's contact will be gray and you won't be able to click on it.

I have a parent holding a child’s hand sign on top of my elders. What does this mean??

I had birthday cakes on top of my elder’s head so I tapped it which means I techincally moved them out. However, they still show up as current generation in my family portrait! But they’re not even in my house anymore..
Also, do NPC’s just disappear from the portrait after moving out? It’s gone..
