Not popular npcs like mrs crumplebottom, but like the neighboorhood people. Apparently these are the Pleasantview townies now that ive looked it up. I usually only play my custom neighboorhoods so I thought they were the default.
Did anyone's personality seem interesting to you?

Goopy, benjamin, meadow, andrea etc

Benjamin Long and Brandon Lillards are both nutjobs in my games, they always causing drama. Komei is boring so he or Joe Carr is usually my "punching bag" when I want to test out something evil. Meadow is a sweetheart and in one save I had her marry one of my fav sims, went to college and had a cute daughter named Doe. One other of my sims married Niel LeTourneau, he is a sweetheart. He is a firefighter and he stopped one of the fires she had started in her dorm kitchen fire at college.

Ok this makes me want to play again :) I love all the storylines i had!

    I have never played with the townies pictured, but I found the blonde Tricou teen and started playing with him. I also resurrected the whole Tricou family, which was fun. The other townie I usually play with is Kaylynn Langerak, usually marrying Don Lothario.

    Hi :)
    Lol! I'm the opposite. :lol:
    I like Komei but dislike Benjamin and Goopy.

    I'm playing a Townie vs NPC Legacy. To see which ones do better. I think the NPCs will win. They'll have something to accomplish each generation (I haven't figured that out yet but I always seem to restart my neighborhoods when they get going well :( ).
    They'll have to win while I have to fulfill their wishes. That way I can't just do the same thing. I'm going to check out a lot of ROS (Random Occurrence Scenario) and put the good ones in a jar to randomly pull out each Generation/Week/Day, depending.

    Goopy is famous enough that he features in Sims 2 PS2, Sims 3 Monte Vista, and has a exwife and daughter in Barnacle Bay. Kind of amazed he isnt in Sims 4 yet.

    Sims 2 PSP probably has the best townies; they all have the most bizarre backstories and quirks, truly fitting Strangetown. I need to create them in the PC version some day. One of them is, for example, dedicated to sabotaging everything Lazlo Curious does in life.

    I have never played the premade neighbourhoods long enough to get to know their townies, but im well aquainted with the Pleasantview townies (due to custom neighbourhood syndrome), Downtownies, and all the subhood townies.

    I didn't know that about Goopy!

    these are the custom neighborhood townies, I guess by default they are the plesantview ones, too.

    I don't like to play with them because I don't have the control over them. I do remember that Benjamin Long was my husband the very first time I played the Sims 2 (my Sim self). We had lots of babies haha and I think I cried when they died of old age. So Benjamin has a special place in my heart.
    English is not my first language so sorry if I make any mistakes!

    Yeah, the game at one point in development would generate brand new townies for custom hoods, with a Sims 1-ish message about holding on while they get made and 'move in', but in the final version, every custom hood will use Pleasantview's townies. This is one of the reasons why Goopy is so famous; he was EVERYWHERE in people's games, unless they played in Strangetown or Veronaville. And with that weird clothing of his, and that name, he stood out amongst all the other townies.

    He has a complex history now for a townie; he was born in Monte Vista, lived with his parents there for some time, later in life he lived in Tranquility Falls with Chantal Leer, Larry Liu and Candi Cupp, then switched aspirations from Knowledge to Romance and moved to Pleasantview and other towns, eventually marrying a woman named Alice and having a child, Celeste, with her, before divorcing (probably due to that Romance aspiration) and leaving for some other town. Maybe in Barnacle Bay's timeline hes still welcoming new residents to Pleasantview.
