Re: [FEEDBACK] [GTW] NPCs that are in game but not in manage households

EA Sims Team

We have lots of different NPCs that cannot be located in Manage Households and don't actually live in the world, this is by design. We call them "townies". I believe service NPCs fall under this category. The Grim Reaper definitely falls under this category. Sounds like guilty suspects falls under this category as well. Standard smile

I have this problem, and I only play with the base game and the free christmas stuff. Maybe there was an update or smth, all I know is I'm getting flooded with ghosts.

This is by design

 

You can make them visible with the MC Command Center mod and then delete (I do believe it also makes the ghost ones visible).

 

If not, add the ghost to your family with Testingcheats - add to family and then delete.

Sims without households

★★★★ Novice
I have been playing for awhile, and after a bit in my playable careers, especially tue scientist, co-worker sims startedshowing up not in the uniforms. If I mind control them to change outfits, they never change, though it acknowledges them for the task.
I looked for these Sims in manage households, and they don't show up at all - no matter where I look. Generally not an issue, but one of my played sims had a little work fling with one of them, and now she's pregnant...and stuck in labour, because she doesn't have a home, in world or out. I know I could have her move in, even just to give birth, but I just wanted to know if anyone else has Sims like this in their game?

Hi @Kabetz57

 

yes, these Sims are by design. Merged your thread with existing.

 

The clothing seems off though

 

You'll need to move the Sim in.

This is totally the stealth townies that got picked to be your co-workers and their strange thing about not being able to wear alternate clothing.

Thanks. I was still looking for that link but couldn't find it (obviously because I haven't added it yet)

I actually have an entire family of "stealth sims" ...I kept noticing this one woman around town, but I didn't remember her from the Unplayed/Other Households menus (I keep this pretty cleaned up and manually cull townies I don't want every time I'm at a neighborhood screen). So I have MCCC installed so I clicked on her to manage in CAS, and there she is with her husband AND two kids. So I thoroughly search the Other Households menu AGAIN and they are absolutely not there. I also have a white woman with a hideous blonde arfo roaming around all the time and I can't find her either. With MCCC, I know I can delete them but I'm gonna dig a little more to see if I can figure out a reason for them being in the game before I delete them.

@lovebebella They are hidden households probably cause they were created for some game scenario.

This is not a bug but by design.
