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.

Cheridustria answered:

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!

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 | REPORT
I'm going through same situation. I actually bought a house twice and still nothing. Someone needs to fix that
Guest said: 12th Sep 2015 | REPORT
I don't know how to😕
Guest answered:

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!!!

If it's green, the game is in the process of adding a new Sim.
Guest answered:

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:

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.

I did do that
Guest answered:

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!)

Guest answered:

You have to buy a house or an empty lot in order to add a new sim.

Guest answered:

I have an empty house and I'm in level 12 so I can have 9 Sims but when I tap on that house on the house option menu the "add new sim" is inactive(gray) what should I do?

Yup, same as the others. I already built a house, in fact it's even earning now. But the add sim button is still gray. I'm lvl 6. Sim Population is 2/6. The answers stated here really didn't help with the issue.

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.....

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.

How do you partner them up together
LDSP said: 19th May 2014 | REPORT
You have to get the quest "LOVE IS IN THE AIR" then you can do it!
Skyzzy answered:

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. Smile

Guest answered:

you need to have an empty house with no sim living in it. Tap the house and press add a sim

That's the thing, te add a sim button is grayed out. None of my sims love there, there are no babies being born, there is 2/6 population and nobody lies in that house. Im not doing anything wrong.
Guest answered:

I'm on nine and I cannot get those big Houses by the oceans and I cannot build the real estate to work there

Guest answered:

Well first they only let you add a sim to town when you have a task to add a sim then click on a house then the house type and add a sim thats all you have to do

LDSP answered:

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!!!!!!!

cutepuffie2 answered:

If it's grey!! It means you need to complete more tasks!! I had that at level 6 and now I can make more Sims! Your welcome! Now back to finishing my sims marriage.

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

Make them married, then buy a Baby Crib/Bed then on top, click the add sims icon.. It'll cost you 5LP...
Guest answered:

Does anyone responding to this post actually read the comments? We get how to add a sim...it's that the Quest won't complete when we do that!

Guest answered:

The answer is... Nobody knows! It must be a bug! Now we can't earn keys anymore! PLEASE fix this!

Guest answered:

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.

Guest answered:

If you have a house that has only one Sims living there, you can make that sims(who's living alone) to date the other sims(from the other house). If so, there will be an action that says *Ask To Move in, it means that you're going to live together with the other sims you date.. After that, the previous house of your sims who lives alone will be occupied. Then CLICK THE EMPTY HOUSE THAT SAYS *ADD NEW SIMS..

Build a new house or marry two Sims which means they move out you can add a new sim.

My Sims answered:

Just make sure you have empty house or just empty lot. Then you click the lot/house and choose add Sims.

Guest answered:

Maybe you're currently adding a new sim, a baby sim ( an icon on the crib) rather.. You cannot add two Sims at the same time

1.You go to the home menu
2.There will be a + sign with a house next to it
3.You will want to press the + sign with the house next to it
4.Then you should be able to create your sim
5.Have fun! Enjoy!

All you have to do is buy a house and press create sim and voilà a new sim is added in the town

Guest answered:

If you can't add a new Sim then you need to select an empty house and it should give you the option to add a new Sim.

tmccorkle2019 answered:

Try clicking on a house, or you if have married Sims, try clicking on a crib and adding a baby (it'll take 24 hours)

Guest answered:

Adding a sim is super easy . First you have to buy a house . But one you can afford . Once you’ve bought it , it will automatically come up with an option to add sim , move a sim there or demolish . So you click add sim and then customise it to your likening .
Hope this has helped

Guest answered:

Build Car Lot. After completion, buy a car, have your SIM drive the car; Go for a Drive. Once selected, click on your maps to follow it on The Town Map. Depending on what system you're using; I'm using an Android tablet, you'll see music notes , click on them. Voila!
