The first time my Sim made a friend I asked to be BFFs never thinking there was a limit to how many I could have. Later, after a terrible Cowplant accident, I was without a BFF. When the time came to complete the Friend of the World Aspiration I learned that I couldn't be BFFs with anyone else because I was still BFFs with a dead Sim who only existed as a greyed-out portrait in my social panel. Even had my BFF lived I would have had to make them angry enough to dislike me to lose the BFF status, then lure other Sims into BFF status and repeat the cycle to complete the aspiration, more if I wanted to complete the 20 BFF achievement. Well, I modded the game instead.

This is a simple XML tuning mod that removes the check for an existing BFF, thus allowing Sims to have more than one BFF at a time.

This mod changes the following XML resource and will conflict with other mods that also change this resource:

S4_E882D22F_00000000_0000000000009065

This mod was built using Game Version 1.0.797.20, it should be compatible with all versions.

Updated 2014/10/31. This mod removed the check on the currently controlled asking Sim but I didn't remove the check on the targeted Sim, one Sim could have unlimited BFFs but if you switched Sims you might have found your potential BFF field limited. I just updated the mod so that it should now ignore the BFF bit on both the asking Sim and the target Sim, so if you play multiple Sims you can have a crazy web of BFFs.

Updated 2014/11/01. Added back the version that only removes the check on the currently controlled asking Sim until I can figure out how to keep the Ask to be BFFs interaction from being always present. I'm adding the newer option as a second file for people who play multiple households and may run into the issue where you can't ask a Sim who already has a BFF. However since the check on both Sims is removed the option to ask to be BFFs will always appear since the game is ignoring that they are BFFs.

Updated 2014/12/20 Finally updated the mod to be compatible with the December patch! Now to start my Christmas shopping. Soon. Maybe tomorrow...

Working mod, thank you so much, this is one of the best mods ever. I have no idea why it is like that in the first place that your sim can only have one.

Is this mod going to be updated, or does anyone know how to make a similar version? Because when you try to make a new best friend you lose the old one.

It's impossible to have more than one "Best Friend"! If you have a "Best Friend", it means none are equal. How can you have more than one? One HAS to be better than the other or he/she is NOT the best! Just sayin'...So does this mod not work with the latest patch? lol

It does work, but I have a bug with the "aks to become bff" option not showing text, it's just white. That might be because of the language thought, I play in french

I have to disagree with you on that, you can have multiple people who are "Best friends", best friends are those whom you are completely comfortable with, and can trust with your life, they are the people that you go to first when anything in your life, no matter how grand or how minor it is, they are the people that will be 100% honest with you, even if its not something you want to hear, they are the ultimate form of friendship, where they become your family, not legally or through blood, but by your incredibly strong bond, and in some of cases, that bond is stronger than any blood-related family could ever be, they are the people whom you would be willing to sacrifice anything for, and they do the same for you, they are the people that you dont have to pretend to be someone else, you can be yourself, no matter how boring, or how awkward, or how dramatic, whatever makes you who you are, the part of you that you hide from those not as close, they are the people that accept you for who you really are.

It matters not you agree or disagree, the term is completely subjective in the end, it has a different meaning to everyone.
