[NEEDS INPUT] Single Townies and Their Children Look Nothing Alike

[ 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? Wait for parent-child families to spawn. For the best possible duplication, do this in San Myshuno, most notably in the Fashion and Art Districts.
What happens when the bug occurs? There are still some archetypes that the townie generator is fixated on, this one being single parents and children who look absolutely nothing alike.
What do you expect to see? Townie parents and children who actually look alike.
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

The townie generator is still obsessed with two-Sim families with a single parent and child who look absolutely nothing alike. The most affected families of this nature have Japanese names, with the Moroccan and Indian families not being affected as much. The most extreme example I saw was a two-Sim family, a single parent and a child, both with Japanese names. The child had black hair and was visibly Asian, while the mother was black, had no Asian features, and had red hair. Another extreme example I saw was another two-Sim family with a single parent and child, both with Japanese names. The child had blonde hair and was visibly Asian, while the father had tan skin, brown hair, and absolutely no Asian features.

 

This was tested on an unmodded file.

@The_Ratticator As said in the closed thread, please create a thread PER issue you're seeing. Not all in one.

@crinrict I've edited the thread to only be about the single parents and children who look nothing alike, since this particular townie fixation is the one that's the most bothersome to me.
