So this very annoying issue is isolated to bartenders ..i at least think. So basically I have these two sim "models" or what appears to be basic preset starting sim bases that spawn in "other households" they have different names but they always show up in excess and generated every time my sim goes to a public lot. I currently have 12 of the one in the glasses and like 7 of the red head one. Each copy is identical traits and features but a different name but they always show up as bar tenders. I am so exhausted with this bug/issue . I tried to cope by just editing one each time I see one but I can't edit 19 sims every time I try to play , its unrealistic. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this issue I am so out of ideas. I don't have mods that effect bartenders or npcs i removed all that months ago. Its not like im not used to the game generating awful looking sims, but generating dozens of the same sim is just a different kind of annoying.

I usually get duplicate glitched out demonic foxes. I've not seen the duplicate bartenders, but I've seen some of my own sims in the library get pulled in by mccc to be bartenders quite often. It was funny to see a Mer King come in and being working as a coffee jockey in a café. now I just delete the offenders as they show up. I wish I had an answer for it, but that's the only answer I have found myself.
no mcc commend, unfortunately. I know I should use it but just never decided to. I have also come to notice that some neighborhoods don't seem to generate the problem. For example the two newest pack spawn normal bartenders as did a few lots in the city. But then I go to a lot in willow creek and i got 4 of the same sim showing up in my theature. And I even tested a new mod today called npc controller to see if i could avoid spawning these clones all together..well it worked for every generated sim except these clones. Talk about bewildering, the mod works as it seems to be designed to, it was using all my previously made sims as npc's but every once in a while on certain worlds these guys spawn, no matter how many times I delete them. It's a really annoying bug that I haven't seem to found an end in sight to. But I thank you for trying to respond, I haven't had so much as a single other person with this same glitch, which is so frustrating lol
im fairly certain its not a ea bug cause without mods it doesnt do this. Weird thing is during testing using the 50/50 method, i also can't seem to recreate it until ALL of the mods are back in the folder.So its obviously gotta be some kind of conflict that only shows up when two specific folders i have are in at the same time. So ive been trying to do an almost reverse method..im just taking folders out one at a time ..problem is I have way too much cc like way too much 170 gigs. The whole game surprisingly functions totally fine with that much cc with the exception of this issue. Currently I have all folders except my accessories, shoes, buy mod cas poses and cas background ..those are the last to test ...its guaranteed if all of those are in together with the rest of the cc the bug will show up so I have GOT to find it this method...right?...T_T right?! lol such a headache. but I promise when I find it I will post the sneaky culprit here so if ANYONE has this issue they know where to start.

It's a lot of CC! Here I was complaining about my 15 gigs! It's odd that it would be something non-scripted or CAS related, I think. I played last night looking specifically for that cloning operation, but I didn't see any other than some name repeats but no duplicate people. There's also some folks reporting a singular child with no one else in his house.
I wouldn't wrack your noodle too hard, the next pack is due in a week or two. Everything will likely rebreak on that one. I saw a lot of new things being added in that will require a lot of mods to retune.

this comment is pain lmao. TBH I don't want to jinx it but I think I have maybe fixed it and I am confirming it now with a final test. If it worked the problem was one of two things..a cas background or...my cc being one subfolder too deep..which is weird considering I have had it like this for years but , far as I can tell with my current testing, I am not seeing the cloned sims without the cas background and the cas folders removed from a sub folder. I am testing the cas backdrop added back in as we speak. I am used to have to reupdate mods, I have to do it every major update but this clone issue has been ongoing for the last three major updates and i just finally got fed up and had to track it down . I'll return with the verdict. Thanks for going on this journey with me lol.
