How does "Ask to Move-In" Works?

  • You ask other player's Sim to move in to your household and become their besties or soulmates depending on your story!

  • You need to reach level 8 relationship and a free Sim slot before you can ask someone to move in.

Benefits of Moving In

Sims that you ask to move in will carry all of their attribute like Traits, Create-a-Sim items, etc. The only downside of this is when you put some expensive stuff to your Sim and someone ask to move-in that Sim, that player can keep the items that your Sim wears!

How to "Ask to Move-in"

1. Requirements

Firstly, you need to have an empty Sim slot. You should also capable of attending parties so you should be at least Player Level 6.
Reach level 8 of any relationship stories, you can start a rival story and still able to ask them to move in.

This interaction will become available once you've reached level 8 of your relationship.

2. Request to Move-In

Once you've met and unlocked the interaction above, tap on it. This notification will appear in your end, tap the "Request to Move-in" to proceed.

The other player will receive this message in their inbox. Keep in mind that you can't send a move-in request when there's a party going on.

Once the other player tap the "Move my Sim" option, his/her Sim will immediately retire and leave an heirloom. The retired Sim will roam around your town and eventually become an elder NPC overtime.

3. Say Hello to your New Sim!

After the other player accepted the request, this message will appear in your inbox. Tap "OK" to receive the new Sim! You'll be directed into "Create-a-Sim" page and edit them to your hearts desire!

Tips

  • Communication is the key to success . Coordinate with other player to get the best result. Start a party and add the targeted Sim to your contact list. Doing this will make it easier to socialize and reach level 8 of that relationship. Also make sure to dress thatSsim with the most expensive stuff so the other players can use it without even buying the items!
  • This feature also let you play as an Elder/Retired Sim!

What happens when you ask a sim to move in and their player says "no"? Will you be able to ask-to-move-in again??

Yeah, what actually happens if they say no?

I am at level 10 with a sim, I married them, they don’t belong to anyone else (no blue thing above the head), I have a free sim slot, and the ask to move in option still does not appear. Do I need to wait a certain amount of time after marriage, or is there another problem?

Hi! So only sims with the blue thing above their heads (called "plumbobs") will get to move in. An NPC (non-player sim) will automatically move into your household after marriage.

Hi! No, it has to be AT LEAST relationship level 8. It can be relationship level 9 or relationship level 10, too! Hope this helps!

I’m pretty sure you can. Once they move in they’re pretty much your sim

Hi! Yes, you can edit the sim to your heart's desire! But the sim is probably retired, so that's why they look old. You probably won't be able to ask them to move-in is retired, though. Hope this helps!

when we request to move in, does the creator of the sim still get to play with their sim?

No, unfortunately not. That would be really cool though! Only one of each Sim that's been made can be "played".

Ummmm.... What game r u playing?! The creator of the Sim thats been asked to move in does not get to play w/them anymore. (Fun fact: whatever your sim is wearing @ the time u except a players offer of moving in, that player will get to use ALL the clothing & accessories ur sim is wearing when u excepted their offer!) What u get is ur sim retires and leaves behind an heirloom!

Hi! No, the creator won't be able to play with the sim anymore. The player who asked the sim to be moved in to their household will get to control the creator's sim! Hope this helps!

I'm new to the game.I had no clue what the move-in request option was. The game never went over it, so I took the description given literally and thought it was the game's way of saying my Sim could get a house of her own. I HAD NO DAMN CLUE IT WAS A REQUEST FOR ME TO GIVE AWAY MY SIM FOR FREE?! 1)Why the heck is this even an option? Why give a Sim away for free? My only pay was this dinky name brand clothes that I could now unlock. NOT HAVE....unlock and pay for on my own. 2) Why does the game allow players to ask for SIMs from players below lvl 8 who don't know what that option is yet and have no way of asking for their SIMS back?

I want my SIM back. Is there any way I can get her? She's not a high level or anything special. I just passively started playing less than 2 days ago, so idk the other play even asked for her? I'm just 🔥 the game didn't actually tell me what the request was.

Hi! I think EA should add a video or let new players know about the ask-to-move-in option! So if some player asked you to move your sim into their household and you said yes, then you won't be able to control your sim or get her back. She will immediately retire and leave you an heirloom. The player who asked your sim to move in will get to control her. I hope this answers your question!

Hi! So you need to click on the blue triangle on the right side of your screen. You will see a bunch of balloons. Click on the FIRST button below the balloons (a bunch of people). Then you'll see three buttons on top. Click the first one. You'll see your friends. You'll see when they were last active. Hope this helps!

And if you're NOT friends with the player, the here's how. So you see a sim that belongs to a player. You will add them as a friend. Then do the same steps to go to the place where you will find them as a friend. You will see when they were last active.

You cannot move them in to your household until you marry them.

Hi! If you would like to ask a sim to move-in, then they must have the blue thingy (called plumbob) on their head. So your sim is an NPC (a sim that doesn't belong to a player) sim, right? Well, if you would like to ask them to move in, then you must marry them. They will automatically move in if you marry them. This does not work with a friendship/rivalry. Hope this helps!

I only have my two playable sims living in the household after removing all the other Sims living in the household, and it still says not enough room in household. Why?

Hi! It's probably because you need an empty sim slot to ask-to-move in!

What if the sim does not belong to anybody, can they still move in with you?

Yes they can. It's the same procedure as with someone else's sim, just without the messages and stuff.

Hi! If you marry an NPC sim (a sim that does not belong to a player) then they will automatically move into your household. If you have a friendship or rivalry with an NPC sim then you cannot ask them to move in. Only NPC sims married to your sim will move in. Hope this helps!

I've got a sim with a level 8 relationship with another sim, alongside only having one sim in the house (including having three playable sim slots open) but the option won't come up.

Hi! Is it an NPC sim or a player-sim? Only player sims can be asked to move in! If it IS a player sim, then scroll all the way to the bottom to see if you can find the button. Hope this helps!

So, once i accept the move in request i can no longer control that sim nor contribute to her sim and other household expenses ? I thought once i accept the move in request we could be real(virtual) family ? Or nah?

So if you accept the offer then your sim will immediately retire and leave you an heirloom. The player who asked your sim to retire will roam around the player's town and eventually become an NPC and an elder.
So, in conclusion, no. You won't be able to control that sim anymore; the other player will!

I had asked another player if their sim could move in with mine but I never got an answer. After a bit of waiting I decided to ask a non player sim but I dont even have the option. Why?

Hi! It's because only player sims can be asked to move in. If you marry a non-player sim then you can promote them (control them) if you have an empty sim slot!
