So, I started new game in Bridgeport and after few sim-hours saw this, when opened MC annihilation menu on City Hall with "all service NPC" filter. I think it's normal, just interesting why game generates these strange sims?

I'm going to guess that these are some category of sims that the game keeps generating before they are ever really needed to fill a service pool, such as that for Resort Workers (even if you have no resorts in town) and that Overwatch/ErrorTrap get rid of entirely after a couple of cycles. Harmless, but no one wants dozens or more of such sims' data in their games if they are never going to be called upon for anything.

Folks, we appreciate all attempts to be helpful and we know not everyone here speaks the same language natively. But let's please, if we could, limit our discussions on open channels to English. :)

У меня такая же фигня происходила при старте. И они не сгенерированы, они просто не убраны. После того, как сохранишься и перезайдешь в игру, они бесследно пропадут, кажется, еррор трап должен все исправить.

Sara_Darkees, то, что они пропадут потом - это понятно, вопрос в том, для какой цели они присутствуют на старте.

Хм... Окей, тогда мне тоже интересно, с какой целью игровой мусор присутствует при старте. Я бы не подумала, что он как-то необходим по той простой причине, что в одном из городков у меня его внезапно не оказалось.

I apologize, this message was addressed specifically to the author of the post. I'm tired of fighting with the browser, for some reason it translates all texts into russian, even if I try to leave the page in its original form. For other users, this disease I have to overcome, but, to tell the truth, with great difficulties. Odd sims are really odd phenomenon, because they are not in all towns.

Sara_Darkees - Off-topic I guess (sorry), but which browser(s) are you using? Might a switch from one to another for purposes of this site help or are they all doing that on your end?

igazor, this theory looks like truth. For example, Sunset Valley don't have these... guys (only strange Flores family)? Maybe, because in 2009 game don't has so many NPC types and in all categories exist premade sims.

And yes, sorry about language. We already moved in PM.

About browsers. For example, most popular browser in Russia - Yandex Browser (chromium). He automatically translate all texts in page, when it loading. Yes, you can stop that process for the desired site, but seems this feature work not exactly as would like. I'm using Firefox, there no autotranslation.
