However, the number of users that can be part of a domestic unit is not infinite, so there comes a time when you will have to discard or avoid having more members . Therefore, if your goal as a player is to have many characters in a single family, it will be difficult, although not impossible. There is a way to have more Sims than the game normally allows, and in our complete guide to The Sims 4 we will explain how to do it.

How many Sims can you have in a household in The Sims 4?

As Electronic Arts explains on its official page , each household can have a maximum of 8 Sims, regardless of the type of stage they are in, babies, children, adults or the elderly. In fact, the game throws a warning or problem to warn you when you are already at the limit of the members of a family. In short, each house can have up to 8 inhabitants.

When it comes to the number of Sims in a world, that is to say at a general level in all the worlds, you can create all the families you want in The Sims 4, although respecting the rule of 8 maximum characters in each one of them. The maximum number of inhabitants in the world of a game is 80, but by doing the following steps you can change this option:

  • Go to «Settings».
  • Enter «Game System».
  • Click on the option "Maximum Number of Sims" and choose the maximum amount you want, either 120, 200 or unlimited.

It should be noted that everything depends on the performance of your team, especially if you are using a PC , so first make sure that you have the indicated requirements to be able to have many inhabitants in the world of your game.

If there is a way to break the barrier of the 8 Sims, but remember that the more members you have, the more difficult the game will be, since you have to take care of the needs and objectives of each of them. To make this work you need to use a mod known by the name of "Full House Mod" that can be downloaded from the official website of the creator . Just in case you're wondering, Electronic Arts officially allows mods to be used in The Sims 4, although it clarifies that these are used under the responsibility of the users . However, the Full House Mod has been used by many players and is fully functional while keeping the game's performance in top condition.

The Full House Mod allows the maximum number of members of a family to be multiplied by 3, so the total of Sims in a household will now be 24 characters . After downloading it, you need to configure the scripts as follows:

  • Go to «Settings» .
  • Enter «Game Options» .
  • Select «Others».
  • Click on «Activate Mods».
  • Restart the game.
By following these steps, the mod will be activated and you will be able to control up to 24 Sims in a single game.
