Tricks to get an Heirloom
If you have ever wondered how to get Heirlooms without having to retire and collect traits, this handy little trick may be what you are after.
This trick requires the following:
- Another The Sims Mobile account (either a friend's account or a dummy account)
- A Sim (ideally one you want to get rid of)
To start you will need to level up the relationship with your Sim and a Sim on the other account until it reaches level eight.
Make sure it's a Sim you are fine with getting rid of first.
After that, simply tap 'Request to Move-In' which will bring up the box below.
