Somebody mentioined a glitch but it might be rezolved now. Try doing this: Make a family of 8, put them in the chosen house. Then make another family you want into the house. Put then in a different house. Now get a sim and go to inventory clikc on the phone and click move. Now move then to the other house. (Sorry if this does not work, another person on Sims said that they had a glitch where it let them do that. But Sims might have fixed it by now.)

I had a household with more than 8 and I wanted to move them too...but instead of having them move I went into edit town mode and evicted them from their house...then i just moved them from the clipboard into the house i wanted them to move into and voila! now of course, evicting them makes it so that you have to change households and all of their wishes are deleted, but meh...they'll think of more! hope this helps answer your question...

KK well I dunno if it works but make as many people as you want than go into gameplay (make sure the families are moved into houses) than press ctrl shift c then type in "testingcheatsenabled true" then hold down shift and click on the other household that shud be living next door to you then you can click make part of household.

Actually make a family and move them into you're prefered home. Go to edit town and make a new family or use a previous family and merge them with your family I've done it

Is there a cheat that allows you to add more than 8 people to your household if you know please help!!
Guest answered: Added 27th May 2012, ID #510390
You can make those people in 2 houses and then using testingCheatsEnabled true make them move to one of those houses

You can't get anymore people unless you can find a cheat to get more land for a house

I want to create a family that has 12 people, two grandpas, 4 parents and 6 children and then I want the children in the same house the 2 parents and 1 grandpa in another house and the other 2 parents and grandpa in another one. How is that possible?

Make a mom move her in to a house then make a dad move him in to a different house. Play one and find the other one you made mom or dad which ever one you are not playing then have a kid.
Then go find a then move in with her after the baby is born move out with the kid. Have another baby and leave it to her.
Then have another In till her family has 7 people.
Then move In there will be 9 counting your kid!
Then move out with 3 other kids have baby's a till her family has 7, 7 so you can move in, so you keep going a till you and your mom have 8 kids each ( well... Do your mom 7 kids do you can move in )
Then your have 15 kids 😊 hope you enjoyed

I know that in the Sims3 pets expansion pack you can have ten sims. You can have 8 human sims and 2 pet sims. But I do not know a way to get anymore

I used the cheat ( the force sim into house) but it cut off my mother and I tried to force her into the house as well, but then I accidentally killed her.

Another idea if you would like to control a bigger family is to have them in two different households and keep going from the town to edit town mode? (just an idea)
Guest answered: Added 14th Feb 2013, ID #571060
I like making mom having a bunch of kids, so what I do is make the lifespan for a sims into short mode, or medium if you want. Then I made 2 house right next to each other. Then once a kid got to a young adult I move them right next door, so my mom can still have babies, and still see her kid. So she can have many kids, you just can't control them. If you want the mom to have twins, or triplets all you need to do is get apples or watermelons. 1 apple=I boy, 2 apples= twin boys, 3 apples triplet boys, and the exact same thing but with watermelons for girls. You need to eat them all in a row when she has a baby belly. You would also need to watch the kids tv AND dance to the kids station to get better luck.Or you could use the lifetime wish fertile treatment thing. I hope I helped

It only works when you have seven sims. So far there isn't a cheat. People are developing one for a possible release date of June 2013-January 2015 so fingers crossed anyway hope that helped. Personally if I even have three or four sims and at least two have jobs and one is younger than a child and free will is off and no cheats I can't bear it!

Well if you do itll delete some sims just split up your families into a different household then click edit town and you can choose the household you want to play
Guest answered: Added 19th Jul 2013, ID #597338
Like the person said before
1.hold Shift+Ctrl then press
2. A blue box should then appear at the top
3.type in - testingcheatsenabled true
4. When you see a person you want in your family hold shift and click on them of the options should be add to active household that and it's added to your family

Now one sim should be unselectable, you can fix this by using the mastercontorller
Once the mastercontorller is saved as a package file you click your sim and a new option will appear that says Naars your click that and you will get many options, you click selectabilty and it makes the person selectable

There's an Nraas mod for this. You need a Portrait Panel so you can access all the people. Tweaking numbers isn't going to do anything for you unless you modify the viewable # of portraits down the left side of your screen. The base game caps at 8.

Twallans master controller mod does it

If you have supernatrual, you can buy the philosopher sotne for 40,000 lifetime reward points, and bind a ghost. You can do this for sims and animals.
Guest answered: Added 27th Oct 2013, ID #606554
That wont work the only thing I can do is delete the sims

Guest answered: Added 4th Apr 2014, ID #621432
Watch this video. It explains how to do it in detail. You'll have to use mods though.
Guest answered: Added 12th Apr 2014, ID #622056
I really wanted to make a household with a mom,dad and three kids. Then I wanted to move them into a huge house with a huge garden. Then I wanted to make 40 workers who could take care of the huge house and the huge garden..... To bad you can only do that in the sims 2 and not in the sims 3. :(
