Playable NPCs are generally either a) ex-partners of my regular playable Sims, b) current partners who aren't quite serious enough yet to actually move in with whichever playable they're involved with or c) townies who have started a romance on their own, via ACR.
I don't write updates about them and I don't always play them. Sometimes I do but usually, I just pop in and age them up so they stay in sync with the rest of the hood. However, all offspring of playable NPCs attend school with my playables. Also, any of them can become regular playables if they happen to pair up with one of my Sims and either move in with them or get married.
I'm planning on including playable NPC age-ups in my birthday posts from now on though so I thought it might be fun to show you the families I have currently. This post is going to live in the side bar and be my catch-all post for any future playable NPCs too. If I add to it, I'll make a note of it in my regular updates so you'll know to check this thread, if you so desire.
Next up is the Jacobson family, which consists of Claudio, his wife Virginia and their daughter Alice. Claudio's daughter Matilda is now a real playable and lives with her husband Miles and daughter Phoebe.
Now in a rather large house right across the road from the Royce-Nihill family, are Jairus and Vanessa Gentry. Jairus works in the gaming career and Vanessa is the hostess/manager at Tate's Grub Hub. They have four children who are now out on their own - their oldest set of twins Oliver and Sebastian and their younger set, Eddie and Louisa.
Sebastian, Oliver and Eddie Gentry are Vanessa and Jairus's sons. Oliver and Sebastian currently share a house together in Exeter. Oliver works for the SCIA and Sebastian is a bar musician. Oliver is engaged to Sophie Gottlieb and Sebastian is Adelaide Sitko's boyfriend. Eddie, meanwhile, lives with Tim Lane and Mitchell Carmody is dating Caitlin Romilly. He works as a firefighter.
Former teen townies Amber Dawn and Elmer Miguel fell in love autonomously, so I moved them in together. They live in a small house in Exeter, with their sons Joaquin and Matias.
Zane Hamilton is Amar Hamilton's younger brother and currently works as an executive assistant. He lives with his wife, Chloe. Chloe works as a surveillance operator for the SCIA. In 2040, they welcomed their son Cole and second child Cary arrived in 2043.
Jean-Paul Tang and Gisele Couderc are high school sweethearts and recently moved into a house in Sullivan. They are both freshmen, and commute to Suffolk University for their classes.
