More than 8 sims on a lot

Ok so I want to make my house on the sims 3 but there are more than 8 people in my family, so I was woundering if there's any possible way or cheat to have more than 8 people living in one house

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

or you could put them outside and build walls around them, click ctrl-shift-c and type in testingcheatsenabled true then lower all of the hunger and hygiene and social things and a social worker might come and take the baby away however the sims parents might be upset for a while after that.

They can die leave them in a room in their take the door away so the other sims can't go in and give the baby their needs

Ok ive done this before, when you have the people youve selected to move out, theres a button that says make active household or sumthin like that, you click it if you want that household, but if you want a bunch of people i understand if your confused. Wiki has a website with it only about sims and all the expansion packs. Check it out! Hope i helped!

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

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 Smile

This is so incorrect it is depressing. All fruit does is force gender... you had the fruits right,but you need like, ten apples to guarantee a boy or ten watermelons for a girl. Forcing multiples requires a lifetime reward, and without mods, being family-oriented is also helpful.
Guest said: 14th Aug 2014 | REPORT
actually watching the kids channel and listening to the kids station gives you a better chance of having twins or triplets, i tried it once and my sim had 3 girls
Guest said: 16th Aug 2016 | REPORT
Actually, one time my Sims had twin girls without any fertility treatment or eating fruit. It was pretty random yet awesome!

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 Smile 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.

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. :(

Yeah you can make 2 separate households and put them in two separate houses than type 'testingcheatsenabled true' then shift click on the separate people in the household and add to active household.
You can make a household of 8 and then change some of the children to YA and then move them out then you can have more children and then add the others back to active household so then they are all your biological family then you can change them back to teenagers using 'testingcheatsenabled true' then shift click on the sims and then edit sim in CAS and then change those are the only ways that I know...
