[NEEDS INPUT] [CL] Japanese and Moroccan Townies Mostly Red or Blonde-Haired

[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.68.154.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All current expansions and packs, except for Journey to Batuu.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Observe the townies that spawn, most notably while playing in the Fashion or Art Districts of San Myshuno.
What happens when the bug occurs? The Japanese and Moroccan townie archetypes are still weighted in favor of red or blonde hair.
What do you expect to see? Less weighting in favor of red or blonde hair for the Japanese and Moroccan archetypes.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 1.68.154.1020

Admittedly, this townie archetype fixation was fixed at least partially by the latest update, but it's still noticeable. While it used to be about 90% of the time, the Japanese and Moroccan townie archetypes are still weighted in favor of red or blonde hair over black hair between 60 and 70% of the time. And more often than not, if I age down an elder with a Japanese or Moroccan name, they'll have red or blonde hair. I have never once seen brown hair among either archetype. For comparison, Sims with Indian names, from my observations, are dark-haired the vast majority of the time.

 

This was tested on an unmodded file.

It was on a fresh save that I made just to test the townie generation.

I don't have Snowy Escape yet, but I've been watching a few let's plays and noticing this happening in Mt. Komorebi as well. I've seen a significant number of red or blonde-haired Japanese townies, vendors, and even pizza delivery Sims spawning in that world. I also saw confirmation of Moroccan townies being affected in the form of a family who had a blonde-haired Moroccan landlord before moving to Mt. Komorebi. Can anyone who has Snowy Escape confirm if they've been seeing this?
