I move Sims from household to household quite often. You have to make sure to delete the Sim from the old household, and add them to the new one.

I might one day finish my Zanes Hollow project, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Until then, you can see what I'm up to on my Simblr!

I added them to the empty family, using the scroll thing, and deleted them from the family they were in, by selecting their name in the list and hit delete.
And now I lost the moved sims, they aren't appearing anymore in sim browser...Good thing that was a backup.

I just noticed the family you were moving the Sims to was empty. Do you know why it was empty? You may need to check their lot instance (I believe 0 would make them be in the Sim Bin) and also their household funds.

No clue why it was empty. The Amadoo family is the last family i created in CAS, placed on a lot, and turned into Townies. No different than the previous bunch.
But that's ok. I'll just use my original Townie dummy hood, and leave it as is.
All other family has lot instance of 0x00000000. Amadoo is showing 0x00000003, and Now on Lot 0x00000003.
That's not good.

Rose, you have to look at the family ID, the names don't much matter:
http://modthesims.info/showpost.php...900&postcount=8

Edit: I use that method to turn townies into social group townies, or Garden Club members. Change the family ID on the sim's individual info (SDSC) and like Playplay said, remove the sim from one family and add him to another.

0x00000003 is probably the lot that they were moved into. I'd say that changing both to 0 would likely be safe. Making them townies was probably exactly why; the game didn't have the normal reason to delete the household instance. I imagine if you created a new household in CAS, that one would be deleted. Though, to be honest, I would play it safe and make a new Sim to be a townie, then move the Sims you want to be in said new household into the newly created one, then Townify the CAS Sim.

I might one day finish my Zanes Hollow project, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Until then, you can see what I'm up to on my Simblr!

They stopped showing in sim browser, because they got changed into Playables...I was looking in the Townie tab.
I guess the empty Amadoo family was seen as a playable one?, so moving sims in it did that. In spite of me turning them all into Townies in game. not fair.
Thank you.

@lamare:
Oh, I didn't realize that one could use the mod off-campus, and still have it work!

Now you've gone and made me download it. Shame on you!

And:

Thank you for this mod! It's a game changer!

It really is a game changer. I'm so glad you made it Lamare Living proof that all the "ts 2 is over" and "all the big creators are gone"-crap is all wrong. There is lots of talent still around, creating.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.
Now what dammit?

I have 5 Families in this dummy 'Hood.
One NPC(2 sims) & one Default, I won't touch these.
Since I started turning sims into Townies, it created the 3 others.
The Amadoo family is totally empty.
Gecko family contains only the 7 babies I put up for adoption.
I have a second family name Gecko, this one contains all the other Townies.
Can I safely move some Gecko sims to the Amadoo family?

The families are sorted by category in that all the sims in one family have something in common - they're townies or vacation locals or, in your case, babies.

Oh - ninja'd again

Question - Can I rename some of the families in SimPE to read "Townies" or "Downtownies" or "NPCs" instead of the random names that are applied to them?

Inflation is running wild in Sheffield, and apartment bills have skyrocketed. It started with my custom-built apartments (my own, not downloaded), where Sims were getting billed over $600 twice a week for a modestly-furnished, one- or two-bedroom apartment, and now Sims in the Tech Center Flats have had a Tuesday bill for $328, where normally their bills are around $32. I don't even have any bigger bill mods -- I keep meaning to get Cyjon's, but if this is happening autonomously, I'm not going to need it!

Since I wanted bigger bills anyway, it doesn't bother me in itself, but is it a sign of corruption?

You sure can. Go to Family Information, click on the family name you want to change. In the Name field, type in the new name you want. Then, click Commit to save the name change.

Here's an example:

Thanks. New question: There's a few empty families in the family information - Goopy is one, and Wan too (although it's different from the Riverblossom Hills family). Default's also empty but it's all NPCs and dead people anyways., Should I worry about this?

I have empty families as well. I don't think it's anything to be concerned about. I think that empty information is probably from transferring sims from their old family name, "Goopy " to their new name, "NPC." Instead of deleting the old family information slot, SimPE just keeps it there. I have been changing names for years, and haven't noticed any issues. Kaylynn Langerak still looks and acts the same under a different family name.

I think the Default family name is empty on purpose. I never change it, thinking that my hood is going to implode, if I do.
