View Full Version : Is it safe to delete Sims?

I remember in Sims 2, if you deleted a Sim, it would explode the neighborhood into a BFBVFS (holy crap, that's surprisingly hard to remember). Now I'm unsure if it's safe in TS3. Would it be safe or would it have the same consequences that it did in TS2? :|

I've deleted NPCs before without consequence. If you have MasterController, using Total Annihilation on a sim is perfectly safe.

Unlike the Sims 2, the Sims 3 was designed to prevent such a thing from happening. Of course, correct me If I'm wrong.

It is MOSTLY safe to delete sims, provided you delete thoroughly. Unless you have AwesomeMod, do not attempt to delete sims that have relatives, or else the deletion will not be accomplished cleanly. Unless you wipe them out the entire tree. Even dangling entries are not ultimately immediately fatal they will not be regularly accessed, unlike TS2, which had to iterate through every sim living and dead, so could run into a maximum instruction count.

I delete sims on a regular basis and doing so has never created any sort of corruption in my game. Actually, some of my sims are corrupted, but in a different way. :rofl:

some types of corruption manifest themselves on the low level, and will only start to show up later on.
