Unable to remove sim

★★ Newbie

One of my created sims suddenly became idle. I can’t give him any events, and I am unable to make him “retire”. He just became useless, just standing in one place the whole time. Thinking this is a bug from one of the updates many months ago. What do I do? I tried to tap him, but nothing happens. I can only tap him when one of my other sims goes to talk to him or do any events with him. When I go to “Make Playable”, I don’t have any options for him.

@xxxma3   Is your sim an NPC in your family tree? If so go to the family portrait and see if you can promote him from there. You can only promote him if you have an open slot though.

@givememore86 Yeah I’ve tried that, but the “Promote” button didn’t appear, unlike the previous generations I did before.

@xxxma3 

Could you please share a screenshot of your Sims family portrait(s)? 

Is Mitoy L a playable Sim?

I attached the screenshots. He does not have the “retire” and “promote” options. He’s just there. This happened around the time when they added an additional lot property feature. Now he’s stuck in my game.
