I can't move my sims?

I've tried everything to move her, but I can't. I don't know if it's the game or my pc.My computer freezes up when I click on it too many times...
Please help me

Try not to click so much the only reason it's doing that is your causing your pc too much work! You have to try to be patient with you pc

Hope it works XD

Try this

Ctrl + shift + C, Type in moveObejcts On, go to buy mode, take the hand over your sim and delete it. then go back into Live mode, edit town but do not save changes, change active houshold, click on you household again and your sims should be standing at the front door. Hope this helps Smile

It won't let my sims move I tried everything I clicked move and selected the house and everything but then it gets out of the move thing and carry's on as if I never clicked what house to move my sim into.

Same happened with me! They just had kids and need to move but when I go to 'move' it says your household cannot move at this moment.

I had the same problem, but figured it out.
- go to edit town (save any changes you've made first)
- evict your family from their home, which will deactivate them as the active household.
- then click on your family at the left hand side of the screen, and click place.
- then choose the house you were already using.

Hopefully this helps!

Hit Ctrl+shift+c all at once so you can type in a cheat code. When the blue bar comes up at the top of your screen type in: testingcheatsenabled true. (. Is not part of the code) once you've done this hold down shift, and click on where you want your sim to go and a cheat menu will pop up. Select "teleport me here". Your sim will then go to that location and then you should be able to move normally again.Smile

I have the same problem lately as to freezing. My screen will freeze and as long as the cursor will move I have to keep clicking each person's face, then he will make a poppping noise and start moving again...But..Sometimes the cursor stops moving and nothing to do but hit escape or sometimes jsut have to turn computer off... I also have a problem of the screen goes black and I have to escape...I am so frustrating with all this happening! I have a regular computer with windows XP.
