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"
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!
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!
Hello! A friend of mine requested my Sim to move in and pm me about it. The thing is that my simat the time she requested her was passive (2021 update with passive playable sims) so i didn't get a message. I've tried making her playable again but still no message. My question is will the request expire sometime so she can request her again?
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.
