For some reason 6 of the members show up in the column they are supposed to be but the other two appear in the column for pets, also i can't merge a dog couple with the family.

Since I have experience with Pets, all I can offer here is wisecracks. Grin

Maybe they're werewolves? lol

Well, seriously, do pets count against the max of 8 family members?

Actually, there should be a largish gap between the column of 6 and the column of 2 where the pets would appear if they had any. How many will fit into the original vertical column of thumbnails is dependent on the resolution you're playing at (800x600 is the worst offender), and the number in the column seems to have been reduced by Pets.

The limits are supposed to be something like 10 Sims, 6 Pets, 12 Total, but there's a bug in the way Maxis calculates whether or not two families can merge. I think there's a cheat code, but naturally, I can't find it in the Pets guide. There's also a hack that fixes it. I'll have to look for that.

Two important cheats! boolprop controlpets on and boolprop petactioncancel on I just use them for disaster prevention, like the pet won't eat pet food or the pet is shredding furniture while home alone.

8 sims is the top, I am sure of that. (No clue about pets)

Now that I think of it I used to play in higher resolution mode until I noticed it slowed down my game too much.

As for the cheats, I never needed to use them since I got those nice fixes made by the people at MATY that you recommended me.

Yes, but they raised the limit to...something. The birds and womrats don't count, they're basically furniture.

Actually, they're "Unknown Sims" like the RC car.

"You can have any combination of 8 Sims or 6 pets that adds up to 10. Womrats and Birds don't count towards your lot limit."

From the Maxis chat:
