It's about time for new ''please add'' thread on my part
so here goes
I wish there was toggles that let us control randomized townies
with these options:* On/Off Randomized townie generation all together
this so game no more automatically spawns new randomized sims if you have it disabled
* On/Off Aliens,Vampires, Spellcasters, Mermaids etc from randomized townie generator
aaaaa freedom please let me have it I am so tired of those buggers it would solve so many issues
(each occult separate toggle)
this is so people who like having randomized sims
*On/Off Famous sims from randomized townie generation
but don't like playing with occults could maintain their saves occult free hence no more nerfing wee
(given if you cured all premade occults game would not spawn more of them)
but also for occult players that don't want randomized townies gaining magical powers from thin air
and would like to keep their lore of only specific sims being able to occult
This would make it so game doesn't spawn absolute nobodies with fame that run all over your sims and premade celebrities
and it would also just make way more sense if sims actually had to work for their fame not gain it from thin air
Ofcourse this would pose the problem because most of the randomized townies spawn for NPC roles in the game
therefore I think this should come with NPC Manager.What would NPC Manager do?
- It would let you set sims of your own choosing for each NPC role that game has
the said sims would then show up whenever your game reaches for NPC like say bartender, maid, mail carrier
and/or you could choose so it would use sims on suitable career (say entertainers would spawn as well, entertainers.)
What if game cannot reach for that specific sim if they died or something and you had randomized townies off?
- Game would simply not spawn any sim at all or you could set like couple sims each NPC role
What if I don't want to set my own NPC?
- there could be randomize button to set random sim to the role
(similar to how you can randomize hero roles in sims medieval)
What about venues, schools, customers?
- if you chose to turn off randomized townie generation as whole
these venues should use households in other households and/or my households
if there is no households in other households in suitable age stage/lifestate no sim would show up
and there could be selections like with neighborhood stories
where you could toggle which sims can show up in these roles/for whole categories
like maybe game can just use my households sims or other way around
or maybe you could set which worlds residents may show up in which worlds as walkbys etc.
like say you could choose that Willow Creek sims can show up as walkby in Newcrest but not in Sulani
or choose that there be no walkbys at all except sims of that specific world
Would it still be possible to play game as is at the moment?
- Yes you would just keep all the randomized townies settings on default setting (On)
anyway would you like this feature? would you use such feature? do you wish it was a thing?
because I sure as plum do
