RE: Moving to A New House in The Sims (2000)
Yes, you can indeed move to a new house in The Sims (2000). In fact, moving houses can be an exciting part of gameplay as it enables new opportunities for your Sim family. To move houses, follow these steps: 1. Save your game. This is important because moving is a significant change. If anything goes wrong, you want to be able to go back to your pre-move state. 2. Go to the neighborhood view. You can do this by clicking on the ‘…’ in the lower right corner of the screen while you are in your house. 3. Click on the house you currently live in. A pop-up will appear with information about your family and home. 4. Click on the "Move Out" option. A warning will appear telling you that all of your Sims in the household will be moved out and the home will be sold. 5. Confirm by selecting 'Yes', your Sims will now be found in the “Family Bin” in the neighborhood view, and you’ll have the money from the sale of your house. The cost associated with moving depends on the cost of the new house you want to move into - the difference will be either added to or deducted from your Sim family's funds. Keep in mind, however, that when you move, the contents of your original house are not transferred to the new one. Any built structures, furniture, or objects you've accumulated will be sold and added to your moving funds. Remember to design your new home and buy necessities (like beds, a refrigerator, and toilet) before letting your Sims move in, to ensure they have everything they need to live comfortably and happily. Lastly, weigh the costs and benefits of moving. Though it can be exciting, it can also be cost prohibitive if you're considering a more expensive house, as you may end up with less money for furnishing. I hope this response is helpful to you and anyone else interested in relocating their Sim family in The Sims (2000)!
