This bug seems to be fixed in NL, as far as I can tell after one afternoon of playing NL. My sim went to the coffee shop and each time it was the same barista. I will play again later today and keep you informed.

After some days of playing nightlife without hacks (except crammyboy's no censor blur) I am positive that the barista bug has been fixed. After a lot of visits downtown or in campus I only have 3 baristas.

I on the other hand played with a hack free game in Nightlife, wrote down the files I had in my char folder, went to a coffee bar a couple of times, and did indeed find that more baristas had spawned. I even checked the new files in SimPE, several baristas and a ton of gardeners (from another bug).

Mutiple Baristas are generating again with Nightlife.  Undecided Not only that, but if I have my Sims chat with them, they become useless statues that stand there doing nothing. They won't even serve coffee to "Townie" Sims who try to order it ~ those Sims get "stuck" in the action for a while, but it eventually times out and they go do something else. If it's my Sim, I can cancel the action from the queue.

It's only a matter of time before Baristas disappear again altogether, I guess.

You make me reluctant to install NL when it arrives!  Can Maxis never get anything right?  Surely that was a known bug that they ought to have fixed in this EP.

I would have thought they'd fix it, too, especially since it has the potential to make one's game totally un-playable! But then, I still have Sims rolling up empty Wants, so they didn't fix that, either.

In your shoes, I'd still install NL. JMP will have it soon, and make it all sparkly for us.  Wink

Well, I ordered it on sunday from amazon, and I think it should arrive any time now - depending on the GPO.

Seems to me, though, that the people at Maxis are being pushed so hard to develop the next EP or whatever that they never have time to research and make patches - they just leave it all to JM!

I couldn't remember, and I did a quick search and did not find a definitive response, but is this still required for NL?  Huh

Or has this been "fixed" by the patch? Can anyone confirm whether npcspamming occurs in NL if you don't have this hack?

Thanks,  Smiley

Without this hack in place, I still don't get too many NPCs. So it appears fixed in a patched NL.

I'd go along with that, I don't have it in either.

Yes, it was evidently a fault and not a "feature"! Grin

So you've verified that no extra baristas spawn even without this hack, and you're seeing the same baristas consistently, instead of random baristas every time?

Yup. After extensive playing I still have just three baristas in my main 'hood. Same for other types of NPCs.

I can confirm this. I reported the endless spawn in the old times at varioussimmers, but I play now without this bugfix for awhile, and no new baristas.
