[OPEN] [VGSP] Butler changes after going to another lot

Re: Same Butler at every lot

★★ Novice

Howdy! The new butler spawn has been a persistent issue in my game since I bought Vintage Glamour. It's the main reason why I don't play with them in active households. Recently I decided to play with a butler for the first time in a little over and year and the bug is still happening. My household went to a birthday party at another lot and when they returned, a new butler was there. As always, I have to fire butlers or travel until the original butler appears. And when they reappear I'm extremely reluctant to travel which is just not fun. Frown 


My original butler's name is Bennett ... The new butler is some other lady I don't care to know!!


Link to the save:


I do play with mods and they are up to date but I've had this issue sans mods, with only mc command center, and with all the mods I have now.


It's really frustrating not being able to utilize a key feature of a pack! SOS

I am having this issue as well. If my sim leaves the lot for University and comes back after class, butler stays the same. If I travel to university and return, the butler has changed. After leaving again and returning (travel) my original butler returns.

Blame it on the in game SERVO’s now. Partly the same functions as Patchy and Butlers. No wonder everything is messed-up.

What is the actual point in this game? It’s worse than the last one. The home page for ea sims 4 says “The Sims 4 is the life simulation game that gives you the power to create and control people” why is it that the game does more controlling than we do. Sick and tired of the Sims now I purchased most packs and even then they all have faults the butlers change when you leave the household the sims appearances  will Change without you doing so. The games laggy. The game will control the sims more than the acctual player which contradicts the whole point of the game. Worse sims to be ever released

Re: Butler randomly changing, visitor management not working

@SimGuruNickMy butler also changed after travel. I wanted him to be short haired, no piercing, older man with no bad character traits, so I was firing all the others until he came. I'm playing on PlayStation 4 Pro, no cheats used.
