Stuck Sims

I'm playing on an apartment lot. Two sims who used to live there but have moved elsewhere are still on the lot. I've just started playing Sims 2 again, most of my quides are still in storage. I seem to remember there was a way to get them to leave, but am not sure what the solution was. Any help would be appreciated.

    Enter the cheat moveObjects on go to buy mode and delete the sims. They won't really be deleted, they will reset at their home mailbox.

    OR

    Enter the cheat resetSim Firstname Lastname

    Make sure to enter them correctly, it is case and space sensitive.

    I don't recall resetSim being a Sims 2 cheat. And a search on a site that listed all of the cheats didn't show that one.

    This cheat code you mentioned
    resetSim firstName Lastname
    
    didn't exist in The Sims 2 and is first seen in The Sims 3.
    Entering this code only brings up the error message. Not everybody use the mods.

    To reset stuck sims, there are two ways:
    1) Enter the cheat code moveobjects on and sell the stuck sim. Save and exit the lot, then return and you'll see that sim again. Note. If you have your sim get stuck in the owned community lot, do not save and use that method.
    2) Enter the cheat code boolprop testingcheatsenabled true and shift-click on your sim. Choose Force Error option and choose either delete or reset. If reset doesn't work, then choose delete. After choosing the delete option, save and exit the lot. Come back and that sim should be standing next to the mailbox. Do not try it on the owned community lot!

    If your sim gets stuck on owned community lot, do not save. Exit without saving. Progress may be lost, but errors that happen are worse than that. You want to play with sim, not make the whole family unplayable.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    I had 2 sims stuck in a taxi on their way to a community lot the other day and ended having to exit without saving. Has anyone any ideas why this happened?

    Two guesses: sim routing, or errors that didn't reset properly. (No way to know which from your description.) Exiting without saving is pretty much what you can do there, other than not putting items in between the sidewalk and street.

    Ok, thank you. :)

    Yeah, if it were on a home lot you'd have more options, but on a community lot your best bet is to exit without saving, and then open up the lot from the neighborhood with MoveObjects On, and see if there's something in the way where the taxis pull up.
