This mod fixes certain issues with Townies.

- The game can't recognize Garden Club members as Townies in many parts of the game, such as forgetting to give them CAS Want histories, or not being able to properly process OFB lot sales if the customer is a Garden Club member. This mod fixes that.
- There is a Maxis oversight which makes it so that when the game creates a new non-Downtownie Townie, the game always creates the Townie with 500 Creativity points. This has been fixed.

UPDATE 1: The game will now give Hobby Instructors CAS Want histories, too. Thanks to Gabby2805 for the suggestion.

Requirements: Apartment Life.

Thank you! It conflicts with Marhis' "CAS history available for any non-playable sim" but presumably that mod is no longer needed now. That mod says it also fixes cas histories for the Hobby Mavens and Social Group Townies but perhaps that is no longer necessary?

I prefer to use the term "classic" than old

Thanks for this fix!I'm playing in UC and this will fox the garden club which is great for when my towns are big enough to have multiple neighborhoods with suburbs and downtowns.

This is great - thank you so much Simler! I was wondering if anyone had given any thought to the Dormies as well - they don't spawn wants for particular university majors the way playables do, and it drives me crazy. I wonder if that's a similar issue to the Garden Club townies?
