Can you kill off a sim in the free play version - ..

Guest asks: Added Feb 18th 2012, ID #248188

Question for The Sims FreePlay

Can you kill off a sim in the free play version - my current task is to add another sim but I already have the maximum of 16. If I just totally ignore one of them will it remove them from the town and allow me to add one back ?

First click on the sim you want to discard. Second click on the dress them or whatever button. Next on the dress up screen there should be a red button on the top left corner click it and they will ask are you sure you want to remove this sim from the town permenantly or something like that then click yes and your done.

U can delete sims but I think for that goal you have to level up so you have more sims. I'm just guessing because I haven't got to that goal.

I had the same problem and by accident I found this solution snd it worked
Select your sim at the bottom of the screen theres for circles swlect the one with a person in it
It will go to the whole clothes changing screen again just click the remove button on the top left corne
(it's the same button as when you select the wardrobe but this time it actually works)

Um I read that you have to put it in a room with no food or doors and it will die like in 3 days I think.

If you put your sim in a room without food and other things that he or she needed she will die after 2 months trust me

I've had a Sim in house where I removed the door for a week and he didn't die. He peed himself twice. He can pull a mop out of his magic pocket and clean it up.

Since starving him didn't work, I saw I can cook organic cookies on the stove and sometimes they burn. So I bought him a stove. It caught on fire and burned for a few days, but the Sim didn't die. Since I had all those stacks of pizza boxes from Geek Heaven, I put him in front of the stove and surrounded him and the stove with the pizza boxes. They didn't catch on fire either. It's been another week and he's peed himself a couple more times, but he's still alive and not burnt. He gets a little scared of the flame, though.

I conclude you can't kill Sims in Free Play like you can in the paid game. The only way to get rid of them is to delete them, as others have described.

Put a sim in a room with nothing else, just a room with a door, then remove the door and the sim will eventually die

I don't know if that works but you can remove the sim from town by going on the changeing clothes of the sim you want to delete and then click on the red icon in the top left corner with a cross through a person, then click 'yes' to remove the sim

First click on the person icon- the one you can use to change your hair and clothes- and there will be a red button on the upper left corner with an "x" through it. It will make your sim "leave town" so click "yes" or "ok". Once you make the sim leave town, there will be no evidence the sim was even there! Then you can add a whole new sim to your town with a whole new personality and clothes.

What if say, the sim had a child and he "left town". Would that mean that his child would disappear, too?
Guest said: 8th Apr 2014 | REPORT
No, the child would stay, but only if one of the parents left. In the 2014 March update, babies will stay even if their parents either left the house, pulled out of town, and other various reasons.

Putting sims in a doorless room does not work. I tried it and my sim has been in there for a week and still isn't dead. I might just have to delete it using the red button in life mode

Actually their is a way folks from talking to people we basically experiment on this game...If you are able to get a pool get one because you can put a sim in the pool then if you take the ladder out of the pool the sim eventually drowns. For the idiots drowns means dies

You have to go on the closet and there's a button in the corner with an X over a stick figure. Press it and the sim is deleted. You cannot kill a sim on sims freeplay.

Guest answered:

U can delet a sim but there is one way you can kill them by drowning them in the pool remember to remove the ladder or the sim might climb out hope it works plus swimming pools are expensive it's better to delet a sim.

To remove a sim, click on the wardrobe as the sim and browse clothes. In the top-left corner there is a red button with a sim crossed out on it, the sim will 'Move out of town' and will vanish, that's the only way to 'kill' them instantly on the App. Of course, if you have the computer version, just starve or set them on fire! ;)

What you have to do is go to the closet/dresser and click to change their clothing. In the left hand corner, there should be a red button. Click on that. Then a message should pop up asking if you would like to remove this sim from your town. Click accept or yes and that sim will be gone. You may also do that with infants or todlers as we'll. Now, you can add a new sim to town and you will past your goal!! I really hope this helped😊

Make a sim cook and then leave him/her there for 3days or maybe even more cooking something that is likely to burn, and then when you go back in the app, it will say 'I am so sorry but "name of sim" has passed away, and his/her family are filled with grief at this sad occasion. We hope that he/she is in a better place now'. I found out because I accidentally killed my sim's husband by doing this, and ended up creating a new sim afterwards to replace him.

I also tried to get rid of a sim. I locked them in a room with nothing but wardrobes( don't ask) and the sim is still alive. I think it's because the sim just wets it's self and vomits. The only real way to get rid of them is to ban them

His correct you need to remove a sim from the town.I know it bad but you need to do it.maybe in the future EA inc. Will make an update for new deaths just comment we want new deaths in the Appstore and Play store

If one of your sims has a fishing hobby, get them to fish. Sometimes they catch a large fish and the game says the fish eats sims when hungry. The sim will get eaten, ignore the sim and the fish, because if you tap the fish while it is flipping out of water, your sim escapes. I'm not sure this kills them, you should leave them to starve instead of hoping they just die. I saved my sim so I don't know if it kills them or not.

Another one is plant tomatoes. Most of the time they turn into Sim Eating Plants, and on rare occasions they are tomatoes which give you heaps of Simoleons. You can negotiate with the plant, or maybe you could just let it stay. (I haven't tried letting it stay, so it may not work)

You can't kill a sim on the sims freeplay, but if you have a have a sim you don't want, then click on the SIM (make sure the plumbob is above the head) and press the 'x' button.
