I know I'm a little late, but I had this problem when I made a brother and sister and forgot to edit their relationship before placing them in game. I fixed it by going into manage world and editing their household. I added another sim and set it's relationship to their mother and it automatically changed their relationship and then I deleted the sim. So I assume if you wish to do it with a mother/child for example, make another child, set them as siblings, then delete the unwanted one. 


Thanks for sharing that technique, great idea!

@nadifb Manual changes of relationshipbits and other cheat commands like that have always been hit-or-miss for me. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

The easiest way to make those changes would be to install the UICheats mod and just use the relationshipbits cheat menu. It's always worked for me that way.

Doesn't work if your sim is too stubborn...... Mine has no mother stated in his family tree yet won't give any other option in drop down panel than sister, wife, or household member.... With testing cheats on .....

@here4thesimzWell, I did notice a few quirks with how it works...

If you want to make sim1 the mother of sim2, and the two sims already have ANY kind of relationship, you can't set anything in CAS. It will reject it. You need to completely DELETE the existing relationship so they don't even know each other. CAS will then allow it. (You can always use cheats to set it back to where it was)

For some reason, if sim1 and sim2 are both young adults, you can't set sim1 to be the parent of sim2. Try setting sim2 to be a child or teen in CAS, it should then allow "mother". You can then age them up later.

@skipyjones For existing Sims you need a cheat to change these things. Does the fulledit mode cheat not work for you anymore ?

I completely forgot I was running a edit mode always in mod. That mod is not working. The casfulledit ode cheat almost works completely . The only thing I still can’t edit is household relationships

@skipyjones Merging your post with an existing thread on the relationships.

Think there's a few suggestions in this thread you can try.

@kreatora Ok, it’s been more than a minute since I last played, so I’ve forgotten all the terminology and structural workings of the game. Can you re-explain?
