Additional feedback

Many of the NPC workers in town have changed into regular clothing, and won't put their uniform back on. 

Ironicly, this has been happening since around the time the ability to makeover NPCs was removed from workers. So I can't even give them a makeover to put them in something more work appropriate myself.

I have had several sets of workers come and go and it keeps happening even with new workers. 

They seem to change when I socialize with them at my home, but since I socialize with all my coworkers it's hard to tell if it would have happened anyway.

Re: NPC Workers won't put uniform back on



NPCs change to regular clothes as soon as our Sims socialize with them. I have seen this happening for a long time. I agree with you. They should wear their uniforms at work in the same way as our playable Sims do while they are at work.


Odd Haugen, Knut Strand and Benson Strauss haven't changed back to their uniforms.


I gave Ragnhild Svensen a makeover but kept her in uniform. One of my Sims have a friendship with her and she hasn't changed to regular clothes. She is the exception. Why is she different? 


Dorian Watt had the technician uniform and now he is wearing a lab coat. 


What NPCs are your Sims socializing with? Could you post some screenshots?
