Default Pets won't count against your 8 Sims

Will pets count as a member of the household?

Yes they will (dogs and cats), but they dont count against your 8 Sims. You can have up to 8 Sims and up to 6 pets, but we're testing still, so there's probably going to be a limit on total number of characters -- we have it set to 12 right now.

Yep Some of us are already aware of this, but thanks for posting for those who didnt.

I'm SO glad that we can still have 8 Sims + Pets too!

You can have 8 sims and still have pets.

Your household can have 12 characters, it can be either 8 sims+4 pets or 6 sims + 6 pets.

I think that is good.

Probably all *I* can handle.


In the chat they mentioned a cheat for the more... adventurous.

it will be 8 sims still and you can up to 6 pets too which = 12 but 8 + 6 is the only way I think
#8 Old 28th Jul 2006 at 2:53 AM
8 plus 4 equalls 12...
#9 Old 28th Jul 2006 at 2:54 AM
8 + 6 = 14.

What would be fun, would be having 1 Sim and 11 pets.

Everyone's going to bed... lol

*is awake again* You wouldn't be allowed 1 sim and 11 pets. The limnit on pets is 6 just as the limit to sims is 8
It's just you can't go as high as those limits depending on how many sims/pets you have.

For example even though the sim limit is 8 if you had 6 pets already the game would stop you having children or moving people in if you reached 6 sims
If that makes sense

Maybe

Probably

In other words, the maximum 'cat lady' you could have would be a lady with 6 cats.

Default counts against 8 sims
"As before there will be some limits to the size of your families. You can still have up to 8 Sims in a family, but also up to 6 Pets. However, the total number of Sims and Pets combined cannot exceed 10. So you can, for example, have 4 Sims with up to 6 Pets, or 6 Sims with up to 4 Pets, but a family of 8 Sims can have only 2 pets. New in this expansion pack though, is that there will be a cheat in the game allowing you to change these limits."

I found this at http://www.thesimszone.co.uk/editor...hp?ID=56&Page=2

well... the good news is that there will be a cheat to change it, but idk how many you can change it by :hmm:


ive heard so many different things about the number of people in the house, ive heard 8, 10, 12... but this is the only one that i got proof of.

Actually in chat they said the total combined sims and pets cannot exceed 12.

#19 Old 28th Jul 2006 at 8:59 PM
they said in the chat they will probably make a limit and that they are currently using 12 so i suppose that it might even be less or more...althought 12 sounds ok with me since its hard enough taking care of multiple toddlers at once just think about 6 pets too....also i wonder what if you 6th dog gets pregnant? or will she not be able to since there are already 6 pets?

My computer is NOT going to be able to handle 8 sims + 4 pets It can barely handle 5 sims without too much of a lag! :P
