Death is one of the inescapable part of being a human. Aging is also included since we can't remain forever young. We will eventually grow up and become matured. Death may come unexpectedly because of accident or disease. It may also occur naturally as we grow old.
In the Sims Mobile, Sims also experience this natural process in a different way.
Sims will stay fully grown adult once you created them. They will not grow old like us. They are not aging for each day or year they have existed in your game. The only kind of Sim that will age and grow is a baby Sim.
For the Sims to age and be mature, they should perform interactions with the other Sims and build relationships. They should gain and hone their skills by executing and completing events. Their traits will be the factor of their adulthood.
Sim's retirement from the game is now in the player's hands. In the former version, elder Sims have only two days before automatically retiring. This gives you a disadvantage to step upward with your Sim's career and hobby; hence, limiting your ability to unlock objects and other stuff.
Now, once you've reached player level 16 and max out your Sim's traits, you will receive a prompt to retire that particular Sim or not.
The retirement option will be available in the Trait menu of that said Sim. Retired Sims will leave a Heirloom. These can unlock new traits, levels and other bonuses.
NOTE: If you missed or disregarded the retirement notification, you have to imaginary raise another trait to get the prompt or the option to retire. The game doesn't have a progress bar for traits. Basically, you need to play and pray to receive that option again.
TIP: To raise another trait, consider the traits that you have with your Sim. For an example, if you have "Kind of a Big Deal" trait that boost your DJ Career, assign your Sim to be a DJ and perform lots of DJ career events.
Retired Sims will not be gone forever. They will still be around, but not playable. They can mentor your current Sims to earn XP. Mentoring is passing the knowledge of your retired Sims to your current playable Sims. That is similar to your granny scolding you about life and experiences.
Okay so I’m having a problem with retiring my father sim. I retired the mother before she maxed out all of her traits, which was weird, but I didn’t mind because I had a son and he was aging up pretty quickly. Now I’ve moved out the mother, but the father is still young/is not ready to retire despite maxing out all of his treats in his career. What can I do? I want to start the next generation, but I can’t move out the father sim so the son can have a girlfriend and start a family. Also don’t have enough sim cash to buy another playable spot and am not willing to spend real money for it.
I’d also like to add that the option to retire hasn’t even come up for the father. It came up twice for the mother until I finally did it, but it’s weird that it hasn’t happened with him. I’m stuck, essentially. I don’t want to keep progressing the son bc I don’t want him to age too quickly, and I also don’t want to start a romance with him because she won’t be able to move in until this is fixed
I’m on level 17 already and I am still not getting the option to retire one of my two original sims. Their son just evolved into a grownup and I would like to make him playable instead of one of his parents because I still don’t have a 3rd slot for a playable sim. What exactly does my sim have to complete to be able to finally retire? Thank you!
Go to the cafe or where ever you want the sim to work and click on the icon there, then it will give you the option to get the job
I was going to click on a star while helping my sim and the retire sim came up unexpectedly. As soon as I clicked where the star was, I accidentally retired my sim in the middle of a limited time event and now I have to wait 24 hours for the event to become available again. My sim was one quick event away from becoming a level 10 in her hobby. I’m so frustrated! They need an “Are you sure you want to retire sim?” option.
