In The Sims 4 you can build your dream houses, create many different families and do almost anything you can think of with them – but you can’t have more than 8 Sims in one house, no matter how big the house is! To find out how to remove this annoying limit and make the most of your property’s space to pack the largest number of able-bodied Sims per square meter, check the guide below.

How to have more than 8 Sims in a household in The Sims 4?
There is no official way to get around this limit by just changing the options in the game, but luckily there is a user-created mod (only for the PC version of the game) that was made just for that purpose, it is the Full House Mod that you can download here.
How to install The Sims 4 Full House Mod?
When you download this mod (link above), you just need to:
- Copy-paste the folder to the location where you have Sims 4 installed.
- After that, launch the game
- Got to Settings -> Other
- Check “Script Mods Allowed”
With the Full House mode activated in The Sims 4, you can create households of 24 Sims! If for some reason that is not enough for whatever you are attempting to do, there are additional cheat codes or command lines that you can enter and remove this limit.
Full House Mod cheat codes for The Sims 4
Enter the following commands to modify Full House mod settings:
- tm.fullhouse “Kenny G” Williams – Removes the 25 Sims limit
- tm.fullhouse <firstname> <lastname> – Adds one more Sim to your house.
- tm.deletesim <firstname> <lastname> – Deletes the Sim from your house.
Although The Sims 4 engine can apparently support quite a large number of Sims, take into account whether your PC can handle it, especially when you significantly increase the limit beyond the number of 25. Have fun!
