[NEEDS SAVES] NPC Households have Same Structure/Appearance/Name (Patch 1.59)
[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the game for a while and observe the townies that spawn.
What happens when the bug occurs? Once again, townie households generally have the same appearances, structures, and names.
What do you expect to see? More diversity in the townie spawns.
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? Neutral/Not Sure 

Once again, the townie households are gravitating toward the exact same names, appearances, and family structures. There was an old thread about this that was locked due to supposedly being fixed, more than once, but it clearly hasn't been fixed, at least not fully. While the clothes that townie families wear are more diverse (they used to pretty much only wear CL, Vampires, and free new clothes), they still follow the same general archetypes that they have been before. These are the current archetypes that the townie generator is still fixated on:


- Sims with Japanese names who almost always have red or blonde hair. Seriously, this seems to be the only hair color they're allowed to have for some reason. Only rarely do they spawn with any other hair color.


- A single parent and a child who looks nothing like the parent, very often with names that do not match the appearance of at least one of them.


- A lot of townies spawning with repeat names.
