Compatible with the September 5, 2019 Realm of Magic/Anniversary patch.

UPDATE!
The September 5, 2019 patch says in the patch notes:

“Fixed an issue that caused weighting for names, clothing, facial features, and skin tones to skew heavily in specific directions if City Living or Island Living were installed.”

But still seems too extreme for me after some testing. Let me know if you are still having too many of these names without this mod.

.......................................................................................................................................................................................................................

This mod changes the way townies are named if you have City Living and/or Island Living. With City Living installed, many townies would have very repetitive names such as "Datta", "Gupta" and "Izumi" - it's the same names everywhere you go. With Island Living, unfortunately, Sulani locals names are generated for random townies in ALL other worlds, breaking that immersion.

With this mod, the names for townies will now come from the list of names from before the pack(s) were installed, so no more such names for your townies in other worlds! Requires City Living and/or Island Living expansion pack to be used. Supports all languages (see below).



Four versions of this mod are provided, please only download one, otherwise they will conflict:

1. No CL IL Names - all City Living and Island Living townie names have been deleted and replaced with the huge lists of townie names available from previously. All other townie names will generate in your game's language, including all the non-alphabetical languages (Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Russian). Please note that when you play in Sulani, the newly generated locals will no longer have Island Living names either.

2. Less CL IL Names - all the City Living and Island Living townie names remain, and are an addition to other townie names. This means that you can still get sims with CL/IL names roaming around town, but much, much more rarely than before. Please note that the last names and first names (male or female) are chosen from separate lists, so you could very well get sims with a non-CL/IL first name (e.g. James) and a CL/IL last name (e.g. Gupta, Ngata), or vice versa. This isn't ideal, but it's the best I can do. Like above, all names will generate in your game's language.

3. No CL IL Names NON-ENGLISH - This version is for non-English players only. No City Living or Island Living names in the game, but with all other townie names in English (including pets & Selvadorada locals/skeletons) regardless of your game's language. Please note that for Czech and Russian, the game defaults to separate male and female last names, but with this mod, all English last names are unisex.

4. Alternatively, you can download the CL Names ONLY if you just want the City Living names to be gone - the Island Living names will remain untouched. All three versions from above is in the file, but it applies for City Living names only (use only one!!). Great for players that want those names when playing in Sulani.



I did not create any new names myself - all the names are from the default lists from Maxis. I will be keeping this updated as long as the Sims 4's lifecycle, so keep coming back after each major patch!

Note: This does not affect existing townies, it only affects new townies generated with this mod installed.

Note: Townie names for Selvadorada locals or pets are unaffected, with the exception of the Non-English version (see above).

This mod modifies the following XML resource (any other mod using the same xml file will cause conflict):
784760DD00959DFA sims.sim_spawner
Basically any other mod that modifies names generation will conflict with this.

To install:
Simply download and unzip the file into your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4/Mods folder.
Enjoy!
