@crinrict Hi my game is like a ghost town. None of the lots are being filled despite the toggle being on.

Having the same problem. House refilling stopped working recently (I think during my last generation of sims).

 

I think my problem relates to the problem with game not recognizing houses being furnished. I tried moving some families into the town but every house says that there is no "Buy furnished" option. I have to go and add something to the lot for it to be recognized as furnished house again. Haven't yet tried if this makes NPC sims to be able to move in again. Lots also show their prizes way lower than they should be which might be also because of the game somehow thinking that they are empty houses.

 

Here's my save file:

I added a picture where it shows that the furnished house option is grayed out (the text saying "This cannot be chosen on this lot") even if the household has sufficient funds and it's original Maxis house that hasn't been modified.

 

Edit:
Playing on PC, version 1.62.67.1020

Currently living in Willow Creek, playing 5th gen of sims (6th born already)

Yep, nope. It didn't work. I added something to every house there is in every neighbourhood and still there are no new sims moving in. Now the houses are recognized as furnished but still no new sims moving in.

My thoughts exactly! I was trying to figure out why my worlds are empty. Went on to google and found this thread. This is embarrassing...why is this not fixed? I see now why so many simmers complain about this game.

2021 and I am still having this issue, in all my saves old or new. I have been playing in my current save for over a Sim year and not a single house was filled in.

Later in 2021 and it's still broken, the entire world, not just the area I mainly play on is dead. How many mods do I have to install to make this game normal and properly balanced?

@seat401 Merged your post with existing thread.

Furniture does not auto-fill though. If the houses are empty, you'll need to furnish them

For the problem with empty houses after a Sims die, please use this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-Can-t-move-into-furnished-homes-as-value-is-0/td-p/5743...
