So I downloaded Grandpa Michaelson from the gallery, added him to the fam, and loaded up the lot. Almost immediately, Celeste got a phone call from some woman claiming to be a long lost relative. Cool, I’d been wanting to try the extended house guest feature or whatever anyway. I accept.
I went into the Sim profile of this alleged relative and it actually says she is her cousin. That’s a nice touch!
Things are going along well until Celeste gets another phone call from some old lady asking to stay over and give nannying advice since they have a new infant, Orion. I accept.
Shortly after the old lady showed up, the first house guest completely vanished off the lot (without her suitcase btw). But when I click on her face in the relationship panel and try to invite her to Stay Over, it says she’s still here. She is literally nowhere on the lot.
Well… Grandpa charmed and woohoo’d with the old lady and Orion just learned how to lift her head so now I’m ready for her to go home. But I don’t see any kind of option to send her home early or anywhere that tells me how much longer she will stay. She just naps in the rocking chair. I still have 2 suitcases by the front door. She keeps flirting with Grandpa but he’s over her. That’s dead.
TLDR: How do I kick out my Sim’s stay over guests early?
I remember them saying if you schedule a Stay Over event, you can cancel it ahead of time from the calendar. But mine is currently active. However, I did check the calendar and didn’t see it up there to cancel.
I didn't see this until he stopped relaxing, which I asked him, he left his suitcase this way but you can just get rid of it.
All the sims err'day
It may not show on the actual calendar but look over on the left side and it should be listed there.
Ok I found it on the calendar on the side, clicked the trash can icon and it said they were leaving. Thanks!
Sounds like a nightmare! Lol
I switched to a different household and as soon as I aged up the newborn into an infant, my Sim got a phone call from her parents saying they were coming over to help with the baby. And both elderly parents showed up with suitcases and stayed for 5 days. I actually fixed up a guest room for them and could assign them to the double bed and everything.
What was interesting was they both would leave to go to work still. Then when they came back, they’d help out with the infant and cook and clean. It was pretty nice!
Good to know they still leave even when you’re off the lot. My Sim’s guests always leave their suitcases behind. Unfortunately, when I sell them I realize they’re worth $0 lol.
I thought the suitcase was a very nice touch. I wonder if it stays in their sim inventory? I'll switch over to my sim self's house to see if his alien daughter's grandmother has it in her inventory.
I’m intrigued by the long lost relative though, that’s cool! I might try that out at some point.
