Ok that helped a lot but I don't want my sims to die is there a way to stop that I have two elder sims and they have been that wary for a pretty long time and what is the circle near them
Guest said: 19th Aug 2017 | REPORT
Sometimes if you stay away for a while on the Sims freeplay it changes all your Sims to inspired and you get a little bit of bonus simoleons/LP. Then again, I don't have any seniors, so I don't know if my comment is the most reliable.

Your Sims will not die, because they can't. In this game, unlike the rest, your Sims are unable to die. They will just need to take showers and sleep and stuff.

Nopee, your sims will not die. Only their, mood, will die. Meaning, those things you boost up to get them happy. You just need to really honestly take care of their hygiene and sleepiness, hungriness, and that. Inspiration aswell.

If you don't want to spend lots off time making them happy again, make all you're sims hibernate the last time you play before going away. Even if you're not back on the game to see them for a while, when you come back they all are just the way you left them ( ps. Before you mAke them hibernate make sure they all have all green bars)

Sims FreePlay is not like the other Sims game. I have one Sims who has been just standing in a room for months now, and it is still alive. It is unhappy, smelly and hungry, but it will pee on itself every few hours and that keeps it alive.

I also have not touched the game in weeks and came back to everyone just fine. You don't have to have wifi all the time (I don't ) or a connection. This is a very slow moving game that allows for time to not touch it.

In The Sims Freeplay, your sims CANNOT DIE. I repeat, they CANNOT DIE! If you do not care for your sim or sims, their inspiration bar will deplete. These bars include hygiene, sleep, hunger, social feelings, etc. HOWEVER... Due to the new update that just came out on March 14th, 2014, your Sims can age to become senior citizens. (This is accomplished by having birthdays) Once your Sims have become seniors, they are able to die. But before that stage occurs, Sims will only become depressed. And if your really lucky, you may get a notification your Sims have all became inspired If this occurs, all of your sims will be at perfect health when you return to them. Anyway I hope that this clears everything up.

Guest said: 21st Mar 2014 | REPORT
With the new update the sims are aging and becomes older when they past the time limit. That means they are having birthdays without you making them. So a senior sim eventually dies, but that's the only way I think. You can pause the aging-process but it cost LPs.. :(

If you want to get rid of a sim, you have to turn into the sim you want to get rid of, tap on a wardrobe and tap browse clothes. When it comes up, tap the red icon In the top left hand corner. Then it will ask you if you want to move (name of sim) out of town. Hope this helps :-)

I have actually left them alone. Like the majority of the people in this question box thingy, NO! SIMS CANNOT DIE! They will need to shower, be fed, sleep, and talk extensively however. But they do not just "die". It will take quite some time to inspire them so...I suggest that you don't leave.

No sim can really die. There might be a few versions and updates that can make them die of age or fires, but no sim can die. If you leave a toddler alone for more than 2 weeks, you will recieve a notification that your toddles has been taken away. You can also make your sims leave town. Select the sim you'd like to dismiss from your sim town. You will see a little sign that is red, like a 0 with a line diagonally through it. If you touch it, it will ask you if you'd like to really send you're sim away. If you hit yes, say bye to your sim! Hope this helped, bye.

If you leave a toddler alone for about two weeks and go back on... You will get a notification that may say "Your toddler has been taken away from you because you didn't take care of them." Also, in the Sims Freeplay there are only two ways for
Your sims to die. 1.They can die of old age. 2.You can drown them with the pools quest. Hope this helps!

In the Sims 3 and 4 your toddler/babies get taken away by social services. In the Sims Freeplay they are not taken away, and they don't die. Even if you leave them unattended their motive meter will go as low as 1/5th (in red), but it will never be completely empty. They will get dirty and they will pee over themselves but they dont die.

My friend plays the sims 3 and she had a little girl, the child went with her two parents and older sister. The little girl was competing in a holding breath competition. Suddenly a sim known as 'death' came along and took the little girl away. Obviously she had drowned and the family was crying for days. What was hilarious though was that she tried to get the little girl's sister to flirt with the sim known as 'death'.

By the way guys if you leave a sim to long on the sims freeplay (like a week or something)then go back on no one has died or anything!My sims were actually all inspired and they said they were feeling quite bummed but heres 10,000 simoleons and 1 lp to cheer them up!So it actually benefits you to give the sims some alone time!

With the addition of the Life Dreams and Legacy Quest everything to do with the aging process and Sims dying in The Sims FreePlay changed!

Once you go through this quest (unlocked at level 26) your Sims will start to age automatically as they complete actions, eventually they will die!

It's quite complicated, try checking our guide page for full details:
