Ok, I'll open my game to make sure it didn't fix itself, but I didn't update so I don't want to have to reset her. And yes, a boy's name will be a boy IF and a girl's name will be a girl IF.

EDIT: Good news! I just opened the game and she is back to normal!

So if I give my IF a girls name will it automatically be a girl or will it automatically be a boy if I give it a boys name?

I never got a chance to make my friend real yet that's why I'm asking.

I gave my IF a Girls name of Jelly Bean and when turned real became a Girl.

That's an awesome name for an IF! I named mine Silly (girl) and I also hope to turn her real. :)

I now have a baby girl who got an IF doll in the mail, her mother is her fathers former IF! She can still turn into doll form, well she couldn't when pregnant. Game said "She probably shouldn't strain herself while pregnant"
Looking forward to her growning up, must move out one of the adults soon because I have no empy slots in the household.
Also one of the other members already have the potion that they can drink to become real. They will gift it to her when she gets older.

Can vampire gnomes turn IF dolls into vampire gnomes like they do teddy bears? I ask because I thought (not 100% sure) that I left an IF doll out on the floor while I played another family (in my game if I leave them in inventory they disappear while I play another family) and now it's not there, but there might be one more vampire gnome. I'm not sure, I didn't count, and maybe I did leave it in inventory that time and that's why it's gone. Anyway, does anyone know if vampire gnomes turn IF dolls?

That's a good question. I don't know for sure, but I thought the vamps only did that to teddy bears. I'm sorry you lost your IF Pally.  :'(

Look at all the vampre gnomes names. If the IF was turned it will have the same name begining with the dark.

Well I just checked and I don't remember any of the names of the 3 vampire gnomes as being an IF, so it probably just disappeared because I left it in inventory. But I'm not upset - the youngest now has an IF doll of his own :)

Well, I had something strange happen.  My sim is already a young adult and when I sent her to the mailbox, her IF was in there and was put in her inventory.  She didn't get one when she was an infant, so it was really strange to find it at that age.  Almost same thing happened in another game.  The sim turned into a teen and I got the message in the upper corner that she had been sent the doll, lol.  Just weird,  ???

Great-Aunt Bernice was late in sending the parcel, or it got lost in the mail service somewhere?  :P That is pretty strange, it must have been some delayed action or something, I wonder if a Sim doesn't get an IF when they are a baby whether that means they get one later on? I've not played a Child that long without an IF to find out.

When my Sims didn't get one as an infant, they never got one later on. So, it's strange to see that a young adult would get one. Unless the YA is childish, I can't see them playing with it.

The only interaction when you click on the doll in the inventory is, "pick up".  She will constantly carry it around with her until she does something like, take a shower or fix something to eat.  Oh well, it is funny to see a young adult carrying around a doll. :)  She doesn't have the childish trait, but there is no harm in the doll being in the inventory, not sure if her child, when she has one, can even interact with her IF, but maybe I will find out.

I had just got triplets for the first time (yay!) and the only reason I hadn't aged them up is because they hadn't got their IF's yet. I finally got annoyed because it was taking so long and just aged them up. Later that night their "godmother" sent them all one! Yay!  ;D

I had a weird thing with my IF. My girl was turning into an adult, and her IF was in her inventory. When the camera panned to her, I noticed this strange woman standing behind her.

Considering there is a fence all the way around the lot with a gate locked to everyone, I nearly jumped out of my skin. I paused and hovered over her and it was her IF. The doll was still in her inventory, but her sim-self was out celebrating her birthday with her.

I took the doll out and laid it on the ground and I had a real sim and a doll IF for a few minutes. After I got over the shock, it was quite humorous. I got it fixed by making her leave the lot while the doll/sim stayed behind. She popped back into doll form and went back to normal, but I thought it was weird! Have any of you guys experienced that?

Lol yes she did. Din't help her much though because once the birthday was over and she was fixed, she went right back in. I love IF's, but seeing her stand there talking to herself and making weird hand gestures is just too weird for me. If Pam was able to talk and interact with her it would be different, but she has to paint 24/7.  ;D Well, they did talk for a little bit, but she still didn't discover the last 2 traits.  ::)

Okay I started a topic about this but nobody answered.  :( Anyway, after one of my triplets' IF came out of doll state, her sister got a wish to chat with him! Is this just a weird glitch or do siblings know about each other's IFs?

Maybe it is a glitch or once they come out of doll state, the sister/game sees them and gives a wish to chat to him.

That has to be a glitch. I've had several IF's and the only person that knows about them is the person it belongs to.

Same thing happened to my sim siblings! One got a wish to chat with the other siblings' IF. Must be a glitch..

I have some questions about Imaginary Friends that I'd like to ask here. I'm not sure if these questions have already been asked and answered or not but I'd like to have a clear understanding of these questions anyway.

1: My female Sim has the "Surrounded by family" lifetime wish, if I make an IF real and age it up to a teen then will
    this count towards her wish?

2: Do IFs count towards the maximum number of Sims you can have in a household? Or do they have to be made
    real for that to count.

3: If I have 8 Sims living in a household will I be able to make a IF real?

I think that's most of what I need to know, for now. This is the first time I've had IFs as I've only had Generations for about a month. Both of my two girls got a doll so any information related to my questions would be helpful.  :)

Welcome to the forums Rainbow Dash!

1. I'm not sure as I've never done it, but I doubt it as it has to be their child or an adopted child to fill that wish.

2. Only when turned real will they count to the 8 limit.

3. I don't think so, as turning it real will make it part of the household.

Enjoy the game!  ;D

I just discovered that adopting kids can get you an IF as well.  I just adopted 4 toddlers and all 4 of them got IF's in the mail.  I didn't get a notice though about great Aunt or Godmother sending them, they just appeared in the mail.

Now my Son just got one, although his was not sent by a relative but by the Lotso Family. All three of my kids have a doll now, I plan on having two more children, wonder what the chances are of all my kids getting an IF! xD
