I seem to have a few too many


(I hope for your sake that tinypic has resized this, apologies if it hasn't)

Yes, I have checked and yes, they are all proprietors. Apparently the park proprietor job is extremely popular. More showed up after I took this screenshot and more keep showing up as time passes.

The venue is in permanent Simfest mode without a Simfest actually happening and I've only just noticed, f knows how long it's been doing this for. It's broken my game though

I had this same problem. I ended up bulldozing the lot and replacing it with the smaller park that is in the community lots area in Edit Town. I haven't had it happen since then.

Thanks for the tip! Did they all disappear when you bulldozed it? It's STILL spawning proprietors. I don't want to lose the venue though. I've switched it off now because it was driving me crazy (lagging so badly it was practically playing backwards) but I think I'll try saving the lot, bulldozing it and then placing it again. Hopefully that will work. Although I'm finding it quite entertaining in a way

Blame the sluggish economy for all the unemployed proprietors.

They're still spawning, I haven't fixed it yet. I wonder if I have to audition for all of them before I can get a gig

you could try saving the lost to your bin then replacing it.

Its not usually the lot itself that causes this spawning issue, it can happen anywhere - even a sim getting out of a taxi on the street. This has been an issue since LN but was corrected at some point but seems to be back again a lot with ST.

Its the sim itself that is the problem and not the lot. Depending on the sim that causes the spawn there are different ways to solve the issue. You do want to solve it cause it really inhibits game performance.

Do not delete the sims.

The easiest is to, if you recently saved but not saved after they spawned like that is to exit to the main menu without saving and then come back into the game or use resetsim * to send all sims back to there 'home' spot and the extras should disappear.

The proprietor is associated with stage object not the lot but removing the object usually does not remove all the extra proprietors. You can remove the stage, save and exit the game and the part should be cleared and then replace the stage and let it generate an new, and just one, proprietor. If that stage keep spawning like that you have a bit different problem that will require more steps.

There is a mod that apparently cleans up extra sims that are spawned during your game play (you don't even need to know where the duplicate clones are for it to do that) but I forget the name of it. I am sure someone else can fill you in on that.

Since the picture is now missing from the first post I can't see how many you have but I also believe the game will spawn a proprioter for every regular non-LN bar you have on a performance lot so that they can serve you drinks.
Plus there is a hidden Proprioter placement object that tells them where to stand when you visit the lot.
It's not in Buydebug, you have to have a mod to use it but I guess the lot might have problems if it somehow has more than one of these.

I'm not normally as grumpy as my avatar appears.

Yeah that's what I'm gonna do I think. I get less than a minute of playing time before the game starts to lag too badly to play (20 minutes freeze between 10 seconds playing time, impossible) so I'll have to race my game to get it done

Thanks for the detailed reply! What do you mean by THE sim? There are loads of them and I get a new one every minute or so. Is it a problem with the sim I'm playing the game with or a problem with every sim who aspires to be the proprietor for the park?

I don't know how to delete sims so I'm in no danger of doing that. I've saved loads of times since they started spawning: I have no idea when it started, so I can't reload. I'll have to look into resetting sims because I don't know how to do that either.

People building stages seem to be encountering problem after error after glitch so I'm not sure whether to try that or not. I was planning on saving the lot, deleting it, reloading and then planting it back again but I don't know if it'll save my proprietor collection along with everything else. I don't use mods so I'm gonna have to figure a solution out somehow

Stupid tinypic. I've replaced it. Lots and lots of proprietors for the same lot and I don't use mods, never have and never will, so it can't be that causing it. Next time I open the game, it's bulldozing time

I had that problem a few months back only it was with regular sims. I converted a barn into a dive bar. It became extremely popular, to the point that every sim in town would flock to the lot and not leave even though they were almost dieing.


Resetting the whole town wouldn't work either. They would imediatly leave there houses and head back to the barn. I even bulldozed the lot but again they came back.
It's like they're all saying, "where did it go?".


I finally went into world editor and completely deleted the lot itself. Then I replaced it with the same size empty lot and finally no one came back. The barn however will never be placed again. I had enough fun the first time.
