My Sim has a roommate, and I don't know where they're coming from.
Everything was going fine, and then suddenly I get a notification saying "Here's your roommates rent!". I'd recently gotten married, so I thought maybe the game is glitching, since technically he's a new Sim to the house.
But no! They're listed as a part of the household, but they aren't a controllable sim. I 'deleted' the first one, but then another Sim took their place.
As far as I can tell, I can't ask them to leave. They're always unemployed, like most NPC's/Sims, so they just stick around the house.
Did I activate something, or maybe there's an option I don't know about? Because I don't want them there.
(Also, I should point out that until now, I didn't know you could even have NPC roomates that paid rent).

it came with the new patch,you can have roomates but they don't work as well without university, if you want to get rid of the roommate save your game close it down, then reload it the roomate then will be an active player so you then can move it out via edit town or just find it a home via computer, when university comes in all the rest of the actions will work this will probably include asking them to leave.
Till then they only stay npc until you save and reload then they become active sims and controlable.

It is true, I just had it happen in my game. She just showed up out of the blue. As soon as I get back into my game, I'm moving her OUT OF THERE. lol These roommates will also count to the number of your household of 8. My sim wants more grand babies, and this roommate is keeping that from happening.
Ah man. I know I did the update on the patch last night myself. And saw the roommate and set ownership of the bed options now in the game. But I sooo don't want random sims thinking they are my sim's roommate. Could be convenient as she is a vamp and could have a leave in person to drink from. But still the randomness of these latest patches is not cool.
