This summons a named sim. It is the same as the two cheats sims.get_sim_id_by_name followed by sims.summon_sim_to_zone but avoids the user having to get the sim ID first.

I made this for myself to clean out ghosts from my contact list more easily by pausing the game, summoning ghosts in my contact list, using a cheat to add them to the household, setting CAS to full edit mode and then going into CAS and deleting them. I wasn't going to post it since there's a more full-featured mod by Scumbumbo called Teleport Any Sim that summons sims to a statue and changes their behaviour to cause them to stick around, but decided to post it anyway for in case anybody wants a small simple mod to summon sims.

Since the built-in cheats summon sims to the place sims appear when they zone into lots, that is where this mod summons them as well.

Enter the debug console (Ctrl+Shift+C for Windows) and use this:

summon_sim SimFirstName SimLastName


summon_sim john doe

Game Version
