I Want To Play A Household With More Than Eight Sims


Please see: Which Mod FAQ#Overstuffed)


Why Can't I Visit An Inactive Household?


After a house has been built, either by EA, you or a custom download, sometimes the front door isn't set properly and other inactive sims (those NOT belonging to that household) are able to walk into the house and use the objects.

It's possible to set which door should function as the front door without going into Edit Town Build Mode by using DebugEnabler.

In order to do this, there are two requirements:
  1. The door must face the outside on one side.
  2. The door cannot be in a room containing objects that enforce privacy, i.e. bathtubs, showers, toilets, etc.

If the door meets those requirements, click on the door then:
  • NRaas > DebugEnabler > Options > Set Front Door
    • The interaction is only visible if the door is not already set as the front door.


I Want To See The Contents Of Every Lot In Town


Install: HomeOpener


I Want To Stop The Game From Generating Descendants


Install: Retuner

From City Hall or any computer:
  • NRaas > Retuner > Settings > General > By Tunable XML > Sims3.Gameplay.TimeTravel > FutureDescendantService > kTraitsScoreToHouseholdSizeMapping >
  • Set the Index 0 to a high positive number. (Twallan's suggestion: 1000000. That should be more than sufficient).

The game should now be forced to produce a descendant household with no size.
