[ARCHIVED] Empty lots not filling up

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Despite having the "fill empty lots" option enabled within preferences, no sims have moved into any of my empty lots.  
All other sims have aged up, and have successfully died of old age, however no one is being set to replace them.

Is your hood empty or do you have many non-plaved families ? To me it seems they do repopulate but don't move into houses.

 

Trying to find out how it's supposed to be.

for me I have the option turned on to fill the empty lots.  however none of the empty houses have been filled, and it is about a month of sim time.  I only play one household, a single sim, but still have all the houses that were empty on start of the game, still empty.

can't complete quest to "make friends with 2 neighbors"

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

this game doesn't have any life of its own when it comes to neighbors lives.

 

i played a long time and now that i have a quest to "make friends with 2 neighbors"...

 

i go to find out that ALL of the houses in the entire game are empty/abandoned?? (due to all the families dying of old age and not having any children???)

 

yeah, so in order for me to complete this fricken quest, i actually had to save and exit, and go create a new household of at least 2 people, and move them in next door, and then save and exit again... and then go back to my original household and go make friends with the 2 neighbors that i created...

 

really cool AI you've got there...

Having the same problem.  Have played for 60 hours with fill empty lots on and not one house has been filled.  All original empty houses are still empty.
