Default Hula Zombie With A Last Name?!
I’ll start at the beginning. So, one of my sims, she wants to be the town’s mayor. It’s her lifetime want. Mind you I put in an empty (clean?) Pleasantview in the game, and she lives there. Anyway, I sit her down in front of her computer (a cc laptop) and have her search for the job, and it’s available today! Yay! But a soon as I click yes, the game crashes. So I decided to go into SimPE and just set her as at level 1 in politics. But... as I look for her in the list, I see Hula (-Insert normal last name here-). WHAT. ‘She’ has the same last name of one of my other households, a HYPHENATED last name, at that!! Anyway, I have a moment of panic. She doesn’t have any memories, I think she doesn’t know anyone, or has any familial ties. So why, oh why, on God’s emerald green Earth does she have an actual last name? Everything else is in place! Now, the list of sims had her with the last name, but the plugin view said Zombie, so I smacked ‘commit’ and saved the package changes. I don’t understand!!! I have objects set to read-only, so what might have caused this? Hoodchecker can’t do anything, it said so, so...? Any ideas? And hopefully, when I play again, Winona (my ambitious future mayor) will be a yes-woman or whatever level 1 is. Also, any ideas about the crashing? Thanks!

The stories games were made with corruption not being fixed.
With using clean and empty hoods like this the first family you place or make attaches the npc's to it.
For what game version are you using the cc laptop form because the stories games have different setup for each one.

Do you have a link for clean hoods? Because I've only found one for Castaway Stories. The version of Pet Stories I have is the one that you can find on archive.org, the Stories bundle.

Of course, the neighborhood is an Empty Pleasantview, which is supposedly... clean.

Huh, I've only found a "fixed" version before, but not an empty one. Not what I was looking for, but helpful nonetheless. Thanks. I still wonder why the Hula Zombie had a weird name. But then again, the corruption and errors can be game-wide, I suppose. Nothing super crazy has happened yet, so I'll cross my fingers on that.
