Only have access to Another Sim Town? Find out what it contains here!
If you need neighbours to complete social tasks but have no idea how to add them then read this post!
I am going to explain Game Center, Facebook and Google Play Games because these are the ones that I am familiar with.
If you are playing on an Apple product you have the choice between Game Center and/or Facebook to add neighbours, if you are on an Android you will have the option of Facebook and/or Google Play Games.
Game Center Adding
Me, Friends, Games, Challenges and Turns
- In the me tab you can set your username, this is what people use to add you, you can also change your photo here.
- In the friends tab you will see all of your friends you already have and any friend requests you have
- In the games tab you will see all the games you play and all of your achievements
This will open up a new window, in the ‘to’ box write the players username or email and in the big box below you can add a message to that person.
You can have 500 friends on Game Center but only 100 appear in your party boat.
NOTE: as of IOS10 the Game Center app has been removed but you can still add neighbours unfortunately you now have to iMessage the person you want to add, not exactly sure how this works as I haven’t updated so I can still access game center. Someone kindly told me you can also allow nearby people to add you from Settings > Game Center > Allow nearby people to add you through WiFi or Bluetooth.
Connecting The Sims Freeplay to Facebook
To add a neighbour using facebook you need to have your game connected to your account, you need the Facebook app logged in to your account to do this. Go to settings in the sims freeplay (the green button with 3 white dots in it) and you will see these options appear:
Click on the Facebook logo and it will say not signed in, press the green log in button and it will go to Facebook then come back to the sims freeplay and you should see this (check that it is the right account):
NOTE: my Facebook account has been suspended so I am unable to add anymore players, sorry!
Then when you add a friend on Facebook, if they have sims freeplay they will be added to your party boat automatically.
Google Play Games Adding
To add players as neighbours using Google Play Games you need to follow them firstly on Google+, you cannot just add them on Google Play Games (that would be too easy!)
Firstly you will need to have set up a Google Play Games account which allows you to set up a Google+ account at the same time if you don’t already have one- just follow the steps that appear when you open the app on your device or through The Cloud or Account Manager in the game
NOTE: I had a lot of problems with Google Play Games not saving my game, in fact I lost my whole game because of it so if you can connect to a Facebook account too I would recommend it!
Once you have set up both accounts open Google+ (1) and click on the people button at the top of the screen (2)
On here you will be able to see anyone you already follow or suggestions of people who follow you (first 3)
Either click add (4) on a suggestion or you can search for someone new using the search button at the top of the page (second 3)
Once you click add you can choose what circle to add them to, I use Following:
Now it will say you are following them so when you go on Google Play Games, under the players tab (complete steps 1-3 below) they will appear under following and will also be on your Party Boat so you can visit them
Deleting a Neighbour
To delete a neighbour you just need to delete them from Facebook and/or Game Center and unfollow them on Google+
Help! My neighbours can’t see an item in my town, why is that?
They can’t see it because they aren’t seeing the most up to date version of your game, you need to connect to the cloud for them to see this version of your game.
Please note it can take a while for neighbours to appear in your party boat after adding so be patient!
If you would like some new neighbours you can find lots on the neighbours needed page
I hope this helps!
Thanks for reading!
