One of my Sim's IF that became invisible became visible when I changed households and returned to the original household where the IF then became visible. My problem now is that the IF of the family I'm playing practically disappeared! Perhaps if I change household it may return...

Ok. I just read this thread & I still have a question. What happens to the IF if you don't make it real and the sim grows up? I took my first IF out of my child sim's inventory. Not much has happened except him getting in the way in the kitchen and playing with his child.

It never grows up and stays a doll I presume, there is an option for Children to have a Tea Party with the Doll but only in Doll form, so after you say 'Leave me alone' although I have not tried it.

So if it grows with the child and plays with the child thru teen years it stays a doll but can the YA sim still play with it? Will it strut around with the YA sim? Can they still interact? I'm not really interested in making the IF real and YAs who have IFs usually are not considered mentally healthy you know? 

That's why I bury them in the sand box when my sims' are a child. (I don't have the latest patch)

If you don't make it real, the IF ages up along with its sim, and you can continue to take it out and interact with it the same way you did as a child - or just leave it in your inventory and never think about it again.

Also, if you don't get your relationship with the IF to the point where it wants to "come out and play" by your teen birthday, it becomes just an ordinary doll, as far as I can tell - you can "talk through <x>" to a toddler or a childish sim, but that's the only interaction it really has left.

I found that my IF when it was in Tris Jade's Crib his Cousin came into his Nursery (both toddlers) that Percy would play with his Cousins IF whilst it was still in Tris' Inventory but int he crib while he slept.  :-\

If you're patched up to the latest patch it isn't possible anymore. We shall just have to find new ways to remove the IF from the child.  ;)

Can't you just... delete the doll? XD

The doll is harmless if you just leave it in the Sim's inventory.  They'll pull it out and play with it as toddlers and children, but it's just a toy.  Even after mine turn into an IF, I put them back in inventory because they're just too annoying.

So far my IF has not been annoying, it just follows him around but it walks so slowly that Tris has finished in the bathroom and stuff by the time his IF catches up with him.

Oh, you're so lucky!  Mine always pester the child to the point of madness.  The IF interrupts anything the child is doing to chat or have a pillow fight.  I struggle to get the child to do anything if there's an IF nearby.  I haven't tried the "Leave Me Alone" interaction, though.  Maybe that would make a difference.

The Child argues with the IF, the IF then turns into a doll and sulks until the Child apologizes to it.

LOL I would so make my Sim-kids meanies in this case.

You don't have to be mean to do it, they just have a slight decrease in relationship. Also Pam, another way I have noticed is that when the Child goes to bed the IF turns back into a Doll, I then put the Doll in his Inventory and it is trapped there. I shouldn't really do this though, considering they will be getting married later on.  ;D

That's the biggest flaw of crazy inventors -- their IFs. I understand you, my friend, same thing with my fifth gen. Logic and IFs. :P

What is the difference between Sim Form and Toy Form after the IF is made real? (Besides appearance and walk)

As far as I know those are the only differences.

I tried that and kept getting a notice "Cari wants to come out and play". Then I saw my child was skipping school playing with the IF. Only choice was to delete it.

Hmmm. For something we can't help but get why are they so indestructable!  :-X I have other methods that might work but I do not have an IF to test them, I do have two IFs but I want to keep them and make them real.  :)

Has anyone tried the fire method of item and/or sim disposal for the dolls?

Hmm, interesting idea. But a tad bit brutal... I mean, the IF could grow into a really annoying Sim! :'(
