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.

Aging

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.

Retirement

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.

You should not force them to be an adult. Let them enjoy their time as a kid. Soon, they will realize it so hard to be an adult anyway. :)

Maybe try updating the game? I noticed that my baby wasn't becoming a toddler and my toddler wasn't becoming a child so I updated the game and the birthday cake appeared above their heads when I started an event after the update.

I hope this helped!

Both of my sims have 4 traits and I want to make room for the next generation but I can’t get them to retire. I am level 16 and have been for 2 days now, but in thentraits section, the retirement option isn’t there. I really want my sims gone so I can control the next generation of my sims.
Please help

Hand holding bubble?
My retired sim has a bubble over their head of an adult and kid holding hands. What does that mean?

It means if u click the bubble, then u will find an event where u can get 2 heirloom tickets after completing the event. After completing this event 3 times (each day 1 event) your retired sim will permanently go in the previous generation & will move out from the house & game...kind of your sim will die.

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!

Did you already maxed the traits of that Sim you wanted to retire?

My option to retire didn't pop up on my first sim until level 20 I think & then level 21 for my 2nd sim. My traits aren't maxed out but I complete a lot of events cause I want the funds. LoL.

You have to get another option for a new trait and then press the retire button that will pop up with igt

I think that its weird that your kids are all grown up but you can't retire... With me and a lot of others, your original character's kids don't grow up all the way until you retire

You can go into the tab where you buy furniture and click the tab with the chair. If you go to decorations and then to floor decorations, you can then hold the carpet and then you should be able to move it around.

If you retire a sim they will free up a new playable spot but you still need to age-up one of their kids and promote them to the open spot

After sims retire, do the character slots become empty, and can you replace them with the kids your previous sims had?

Yes, after you can choose to play as one of your children. Something similar to a family tree will show up and you can choose there

Yes you can if you make them playable character. When you create a new sim just choose option promote so you can select one of children (adult) as a new playable character

Hell, how do you even move them out? Let alone seeing them around town.

You click on the family picture and click on the Sim you want to move and it will give you the option to move or if it's a kid it will say promote

Yes, you just won't control them. Then, you can either promote a grown child or make a new Sim.
