Only have access to Another Sim Town? Find out what it contains here!
If you are playing on an Apple product you have the choice between Game Center and/or Facebook to add neighbours (although they have now made the Game Center option difficult) and if you are on an Android you will have the option of Facebook only as Google+ is no longer available.
Apple and Androids: Connecting The Sims Freeplay to Facebook
To add a neighbour using Facebook you need to have your game connected to your account, to do this log into the Facebook app then 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 key button (bottom right) and it will say not signed in, press the green log in button and it will go to Facebook then come back to the game 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!
Once connected, when you add a friend on Facebook, if they play The Sims Freeplay and have connected their game they will be added to your party boat automatically.
Apple: Game Center Adding
NOTE: as of iOS 10 the Game Center app has been removed you can still add neighbours but they have made it a lot harder to do, you now have to iMessage the person you want to add or you can also allow nearby people to add you from Settings > Game Center > Allow nearby people to add you through WiFi or Bluetooth. If you don’t have iOS 10 or above the steps below should still work but you may find players on iOS 10 or above are unable to accept your requests.
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.
Once they have accepted your request if they have the game they will appear in your party boat.
You can have 500 friends on Game Center but only 100 appear in your party boat.
NOTE: as of iOS 10 the Game Center app has been removed you can still add neighbours but they have made it a lot harder to do, you now have to iMessage the person you want to add or you can also allow nearby people to add you from Settings > Game Center > Allow nearby people to add you through WiFi or Bluetooth.
Androids: Google Play Games Adding
Google+ has been removed so you can no longer add players this way on an Android (Facebook is your only option) but you can still save your game with Google Play Games
Deleting a Neighbour
To delete a neighbour you just need to delete them from Facebook and/or Game Center
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
