This option should pop up a few days after retirement. Have you retired your Sims recently?

@Phantomlover1717 It isn’t a problem of retiring, but I have a full house and it’s making me move out one of my kids in order to retire my sims, rather than move out the retiring sim. If you look at my first screen shot, there is no option to move the sim out on the retiring screen. I had to move out a kid to retire her, just to move her out, and move out the rest of them who were retiring because I don’t keep elders in my house.

@NeonBanana10 we can have maximum eight non playable Sims. So, if you already have that number,  you will need to permanently remove one of them in order to make room for the Sim that you want to retire.

@SalixCat I have been playing this game forever now, I know how it works. This is a bug or something new. Refer to the image above. There has ALWAYS been an option to move out my sim upon retiring. Today this was not the case. I have always had a full house and had children waiting in line to become playable. I’ve had 12 always, and retired one (moved out the sim retiring upon retirement so I did not have to move out any of my kids) and moved the next one up. Always. Never had a problem. I have over 25 generations currently, and this was always how I did this. There are always two buttons, an option to retire, and an option to retire sim and move out. That option is gone. 

 

 

Again below is the image of my retiring sim. There’s only one button and no option to move her out today. This is not usually how this game works as I’ve stated previously.

@NeonBanana10 Here's the screenshot with the button you miss. I know it was in the game some days ago when I took this screenshot.

 

The two screenshots at the bottom show how retirement is working atm. Is this a bug or a change?

I feel like it might be a bug @SalixCat, because that button no longer pops up. Which then you really can only have 11 people in the house bc the last slot needs to be open if retirement is changed.

I am having the same, exact, issue. I have one Sim I need to retire, but can't with no option to move the RETIRING SIM out.

 

I may add, it won't even let my other Sim get married without moving out a non-playable Sim...instead of the retiring one.
