Behavior
The mod will let you go to 24 slots by default. The reason for this is to help limit performance issues on lower-end machines. However since it's not my place to decide where your limits are, you can indeed override this by adding "true" to the end of your command.

If you have a sim with a space in the first or last name, then that part of the name will need to be wrapped in quotes
Example:
Code:
tm.fullhouse "Kenny G" Williams



Commands:
Add extra sim to your household:
Code:
tm.fullhouse <firstname> <lastname>


Delete a sim by name:
Code:
tm.deletesim <firstname> <lastname>



NOTICE
The experimental version no longer exists as Maxis fixed their portrait generation and the game no longer crashes. Feel free to add as many sims as you can handle. The amount of sims you can have without performance issues depends heavily on your computer's abilities.

Workarounds:
You can not edit a fullhouse family in CAS, as it will cut the family size back down to 8. Below are alternatives for managing fullhouse households.
  • Create a Household: Click on a lot and select Create Household there instead.
  • Place Existing Household: Click on a lot and select Create Household. Then from CAS, load the household from the gallery/library.
  • Delete a Sim: Only 8 sims will show up in CAS. To delete extra sims, use the included tm.deletesim command.
  • Edit a Sim: You can not edit a sim while they're part of an extended household. Doing so will remove all but 8 sims.

Commands:
Add extra sim to your household:
Code:
tm.fullhouse <firstname> <lastname> <override>


Delete a sim by name:
Code:
tm.deletesim <firstname> <lastname>

Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the File tab to see the download link. Click the link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
Read the upload description for installation instructions. If nothing else is specified, do the following:
No Extraction Required (Script Mods):

  • Windows XP: Documents and Settings\(Current User Account)\My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods\

Script mods need to be placed directly in \Mods or one level below that (e.g. \Mods\Scripts) – sub-folders nested any deeper won’t work.

Need more information?
  • Anyone can use both .rar and .zip files easily! On Windows, use WinRAR.
  • If you don't have a Mods folder, just make one.
  • Mod still not working? Make sure you have script mods enabled

Possibly idiotic question, but does the deletesim function delete the sim from the household, or from the game entirely?

A SimGuru let me know the other day the fix has been found and will hopefully be in the next game patch. I'll post here and re-structure the mod after this has been done.

Now someone just needs to make a portrait panel like in the Sims 3 so we can change the others Sims appearances without it erasing the others

Have you enabled script mods in the game options?
Can you move a sim to a lot with less than 8 sims?


I have the same problem!
Turned on script mods etc.
I can't add sims for some reason, tried every code option.

Not really because that mod was done after I described in this thread how to do it. Someone was one step before me but it was never published. I think it was in the Create forum.
But anyway, it's good to have a link here. That mod complements this one so that sims can breed more kids.

In the instructions:
NOTE: This is a script mod. You must have script mods turned on in your gameplay options > "Other" tab. The mod must be left zipped! and you must be on the latest patch for them to function.

That means you don't need to unzip it. It must be as is.

This mod seems to be obsolete in game version 1.2.24.20. At least I could move out some sims from a very big houshold. Can someone verify this?

Edit:
EA have made some changes so that the Household Manager don't crash the game if there are more than eight sims on a lot.
It works very strange though:

1. If a sim marry a sim from a family with more than eight sims you must move more than one sim so that the remaining sims are less than nine.
Example:
Lot A: 1 sim
Lot B: 12 sims

The sim on lot A marry a sim from Lot B. If you try to move just one sim there is a warning that there are too many sims left on the lot. If you move 4 sims from lot B to lot A it is OK.

2. If you like to split a family of 16 sims you must move 8 sims so that it remains 8 and the new houshold don't exceed 8. If there are more than 16 sims on the lot you can't split it without using this mod to move sims by name..

In short: You can't move in sims to a lot so it exceeds 8 and you can't move sims from a lot if it remains more than 8 sims.
