Changelog
Update: 11/09/2017
  • Updated for game version 1.36.102 (Nov 9 patch).

Update: 06/16/2017
  • Updated to improve compatibility with other mods.

Description
This mod forces the game to use your own Sims to appear on community lots before using any of the randomly generated townies.

The mod works for nearly all siatuations, here are some examples:
Joggers/walkers in the neighbourhood
Service NPCs and visitors on communtiy lots
Patients at the hospital
Witnesses at the crime scene
Civilians at the police station
Customers at the retail shop

The mod works by assuming that all Sims that don't currently live in the world are randomly generated townies.
Sims living in unplayed households will also appear on community lots less often than Sims from played households.

Notes
  • This mod works the best when you have a large number of Sims living in the world that are made/moved in by yourself (especially if they are marked as "played"). Otherwise you would obviously still see many random townies since there aren't many of your own Sims available.
  • Furthermore, using this mod doesn't mean that you will never see any random townies, even if there are enough of your own Sims. For example, the game will try to spawn elder Sims at the lounge. If very few of your Sims are elder, random townies will be used.

Installation
To install, unzip the file and place both the ts4script file in your mods folder.
Script mods also need to be enabled for this mod to work.

Conflicts
This mod modifies the _calculate_sim_filter_score function and will conflict with other mods that also modify the function.
