I am having the same problem, unfortunately and I have no custom content installed. I have only Sims Base Game, Spa Day, Laundry Day, Get to work (obviously) and now Strangerville. I have uninstalled and re-installed, repaired etc to no avail. Although I have placed sims into the science career, it seems it is bugged as in, the sim can't ask the other co worker for a crystal etc.

I had this same problem with Get to Work (obviously), Cats & Dogs, City Living, Outdoor Retreat, Dine Out, and Cool Kitchen Stuff. In terms of CC/mods, I have some hairs, body presets, and a sane telescope (as opposed to that colossal observatory). I created and moved in a new household, had them all join the science career, then saved and reloaded for good measure. Sure enough, I had my alien "Sim" show up at work the next day and they were there.

Now that you mention it I don't recall seeing any tourists around either and I had that as my work task and I couldn't complete it. The only Sim spawning task that worked was the aliens but I already know who the disguised aliens are in my game.

Having read through the whole of this thread, the issue seems to be arising from the fact that for whatever reason, the science career is unable to generate new sims to fill the vacant coworker spaces, unlike the other two active careers, so would it be possible to mod the game into generating new sims to fill them ? I don't know anything about modding on the sims, but surely that can't be too complicated a fix ? I also read somewhere that the issue may be being compounded by the fact that after the GTW update the game might have started culling sims way more than it used to, although i'm not sure if this is true or not. 

 

I'm not sure how to deal with the tourists not spawning, but at least having the co-workers generate again would fix some of the major issues with being able to complete tasks etc.

Work Around to create a scientist household worked for me. Might not be a viable solution if you are one to fill every lot, in every, town. I've never fill my entire game. Anyway, I will be uploading the WELDON family (with Alien), to the gallery, in a few minutes.

Sorry, I am a bit confused.

 

So if stated workaround, there will be no code fix added to the game?

 

or is this considered temporary fix till a coding solution can be put in place?

It's considered a temporary fix until EAMaxis can fix it for good.

It's marked as solved to highlight it on the first page.

Hi, 

 

Reinstalled the game after a year again and had the same problem - no NPCs at the science lab. After buying the Get Famous Pack the NPS were back.
