Question for The Sims FreePlay

How do I add a new sim in the town?
I want to complete this next goal, but I can not figure out how to add a new sim. It just takes me to the same two that are already existing.

Hm.. Go to the city, and then choose a house, and then you will see a person and a plus sign (+)... Click it and then you should be able to get a new sim... But it might be what level you are. Because I think you need to be a certain level to be able to get a sim aswell.

Go to your town where all the houses are. Above vacant houses is a + sign. If the sign is blue, you can add a sim. If it's grey, it either means a house is building and you cannot build two at one time, or your not a high enough level. Click on the + button if it is blue, and pick the house you want the sim to live in. It varies, sometimes the cheapest house is 10,000 and sometimes 15,000. Or buy a empty lot for half the price. But you don't actually get a house with the empty lot you have to build it yourself.. And then it says how long it'll take to build the house above, if you didn't notice that part when the house is building click on it and it will tell you how longs left! If the + sign is grey, click that to find out why you are unable to build a house at that time. If you cannot build the house because your level is too low it should tell you what levell you need to be to build another house, therefore another sim. If not, where the icons such as the amount of simoleons you have, there will be a icon with a little person on, click it, and see what level you need to be when your next sim is unlocked, it should say "Your Town's Sim Count is: 10/10 for example. Underneath a picture of a random sim it should say "Next Sim Unlocked At" and then a level. Hope this helped! Happy FreePlaying!

To get a new sim you have to buy a new house but if you don't have to money then go to super cheats page on how to get money fast!

Guys I it's simple...you go to the map and click on a vacant house or where is no house...u build a house and when it's done the first icon u see when you tap on the finished house is to add a new sim if it's gray and it doesn't work when u tap on it then that means u need to reach a higher level because you have to many sims
Guest said: 24th Aug 2014, ID #440179 | REPORT
I have added two sims, a baby too but the quest just wont get completed. Why is it so? How should I complete the weekly task?
Guest said: 1st Sep 2014, ID #443409 | REPORT
I'm going through same situation. I actually bought a house twice and still nothing. Someone needs to fix that
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 26th Dec 2012, ID #559379
Well, I am having the same problem also. It probably just means that you either sent have enough money, or you just aren't ready for another one yet. Just wait till the next level and wait to see what happens. If that doesn't work, you may want to watch a video of a walk through to see how it's done. I hope you find this helpful!!!

Click on Add sim

Guest answered: Added 29th Jan 2013, ID #567593
All you have to do is complete challenges until you come to the one that says add a sim go to town map and get one and you will be able to get one forever

 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 21st Mar 2013, ID #577975
This is not true. I have been able to get up to 3 more sims but have been unable to do so, no matter where I go on the town map or any where else. And I have been on the challenge "add sim to town" for 3-4 days now.

Guest said: 13th Aug 2014, ID #436003 | REPORT
Hope this helps,

The money cheat is:
Plant something like beans or etc, then go to settings>general>date & time. And then turn on the airplane mode. All you gotta do us set the time manually exactly a month ago (ex: aug 1, change it to july 1). Go back to sims freeplay and click retry and turn off the airplane mode and turn on the wifi on. Nothing will happen. You have to go back to settings, turn on the airplane mode again and set the date&time automatically. Go back to the game and set the airplane mode off and set the wifi on again. You will gain 50,000 extra money if you're on level 1-30 BUT you will gain 10 LPs if you're on level 31+ (Ex: level 31,32,33,34,35, etc).. If you don't understand what I'm saying, I'm so sorry. The cheat is now everywhere on youtube. I thought yall already knew the simoleons cheat so yeah I'm really sorry that I confused all of you.

Guest answered: Added 1st Jul 2013, ID #594869
This is what you do, go to the town map click on a house that isn't already built and click on a house style of your choice then wait until it is done construction, then when it is done just simply click on the house and click on the first option. When you are done making a sim I think there will be a check sign/button at the top right corner, and finally you click that and now you have added a new sim in town! (See it is not that hard, it's just like how you made your second sim!)

Let one sim visit other then tap one until they become a partner or best friend (for 2 same sex sims)... If they become partners, one option would be "ASK to move In" then tap it.... Visitor sim would then move in with existing sim of the house... You can have like 5 sims in 1 house as long as they have relationships.....

I WAS the same, but just came through. Try achieving your Sims goals, whatever they are. Hopefully like it did me, you will eventually get a goal to add a sim. The gray will turn green. All the best!
Guest said: 3rd Dec 2013, ID #324771 | REPORT
check none of your sims are having a baby, a baby counts as adding a new sim, so until the baby has finished being born in the cot you cant add a new sim.

You have to build a new house or move another sim out (by deleting or partnering them up)

You have to get the quest "LOVE IS IN THE AIR" then you can do it!
 
 
 
Skyzzy answered: Added 4th Jan 2014, ID #613251
Okay first things first.

You must save up for lots and lots of simeleons.
You then go to the town map and click or tap the plus house with no avatar on top and pay your simeleons.
It will then give you some options of course but you can speed them up with life points.
Sooner or later when you tap the house it will come up with add new sim.
I hope this works.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 4th Feb 2014, ID #616418
you need to have an empty house with no sim living in it. Tap the house and press add a sim

There are two ways;

1. To get the sims to move in together and then just create a nether sim for that house.

2. LEVEL UP!!!!!!!

LSDP (19th May 2014)

There are two ways;

1. To get the sims to move in together and then just create a nether sim for that house.

2. LEVEL UP!!!!!!!


Hi, this is how I have been able to create 9 out of 10 Sims ( I leave 1 or 2 spaces for babies), and how it's helped me to level up quite quickly.

* Have a number of Sims move in together by simply building your friendships/relationships. The thing I did was have 2 Sims 'Be Nice' to one another, until the 'Ask To Move In' option appears (which took roughly 6-7 times before it did). (It doesn't really make a difference whether you form married/dating relationships or whether you just move them in as good friends)

* Once I had 3 (but I think you can have up to 5) Sims living in one plot and a married couple in another, I went to the town map.

* There should now be a few 'Green' icons on the now vacated plots where your Sims used to live. Click on one of them, and you should have the option to create a new Sim.

Hope this helps...

From Mai. Xx

Guest answered: Added 7th Sep 2014, ID #638977
The answer is this game has a MAJOR bug... It basically forces you to spend the 5LP to skip this task because no matter how many damn sims you add the task WILL NOT DISAPPEAR. UGH.
