1. Is there a cheat code to increase household size above 8?

2. I have sims in an existing household and would like to put them in my premade sim bin in CAS. Is there a way to do this without going through the Exchange? It just feels awkward to show them to the whole world when all I want to do is pop them back into CAS and play with sliders some more. ^^;

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

I found an answer to increasing household size on a forum - tutorial here.

I don't know if it works or not though.

Also I found this:

"If you want to make a copy of a sim for the bin and forgot to do it in CAS, all you need to do is go to any dresser in the sims house and click plan outfit, it will bring up the outfit CAS screen. Then all you need to do is click on the circle by the image of your sim down at the bottom and there's an option to save a copy of the sim. The sim will be added to your bin so you can customize them and change things about them. "

I don't know if that one works either. I never tried it.

This does work! I just tried it. :) After you click on the dresser and "plan outfit" and appear in the CAS screen - next to your little profile image down on the bottom of the screen is a little circle with 3 dots on it. You can save to the bin from there! I never knew that either.

Awesomemod lets you lift the restriction on household size. Then again it might be too powerful a mod to install for just that one feature.

Well, it is on MATY but there's no registration required. Direct link to the relevant topic. I suggest taking the time to go through all the options on the configuration page, there's some things it turns on by default that I personally don't care for.
