How does Sims 4 foster care mod works?
- After you’ve registered on the LMS foster care network and a Kid/Pet is available, you’ll get a Notification from the Network. Wherein, you’ll be provided all the information about the Age and possibly the Species (in cases of pets).
- You can then decide for yourself. So, if you choose “Yes, I am coming over” your Sim will go into a Rabbit hole for an hour for you to pick up.
- The foster home mod will create a new Kid/Pet at the End of every visit.
- Then, you’ll get a notification when your Sim is back to “Welcome them into their new Foster Family”. This feature is found when you click on your kid/pet and is necessary to add all hidden Traits/Relationships and enables the adoption Family environment which the Kids/Pets need to in order to “live” with you.
- They would behave just like your own, and if you have Parenthood (which is highly recommended), you’ll be able to use all Parenting Influence/Discipline Interactions on them. But in case, you don’t have it then; you can still access the options of (Bladder/Hygiene/Energy) via the Foster Family Pie Menu.
- After the kids are domesticated, they can be sent to school, but you need to make sure to call them Home after School or use the “Foster Family lot Trait” which will let them come home on their own.

My Kids/Pets “vanished” from the Lot
There can be two reasons for vanishing Pets/Kids.
- The most common is the Game that simulates time jumps. When your Sim leaves the Lot without the Kid/Pet, the Game simulates the time you have been away. This can let Kids/Pets vanish from the Lot. Use the “Call FF Home” Option, to get them back home or use the Foster Family Lot Trait.
- If they leave like regular visitors would go, “Thanks for taking the time” then, this is an indicator that they are not in the right “Situation” or something “kicks” them out of the Situation. There adoption Situation is set to a duration of 99999999 Days until the Sim/Pet leaves. To see if they are in the right Situation you can check if they have the FF Pie Menu on them with the “Adopt…” option. If they have left the Lot, you can Call them back too, as previously mentioned.
The sims 4 foster family mod adds that innocent charm and much needed realism into your gaming experience by adding more kids and pets through the simple adoption process, which is hassle-free and comes with exciting interactions!
