Original post:
The goal of this mod is to force the game to reutilize current sims instead of creating new ones, in case game needs sims for something, for example, you go to the library and the game needs a librarian to work there.

With default settings, only homeless sims from unplayed households can be reutilized.
After your first run of the game with this mod configuration file "npcc.cfg" will be created in the same folder you placed the mod.
You can change settings "UseOnlyHomeless" and "UseOnlyUnplayedHouseholds" from 1 to 0 if you want to reutilize not only homeless and not only from

unplayed households.

You need to restart the game for new settings to work.

For Detective, Doctor, Scientist careers (sims that work at precinct, hospital, lab) by default not only homeless sims can be reutilized.
You can change settings "DisableUseOnlyHomelessForNormalCareer" from 1 to 0 to change that.

Only pets (with the owner) from unplayed households will appear at the veterinary clinic.
You can change settings "UseOnlyUnplayedHouseholdsPets" from 1 to 0 to change that.

The game will use only current pets to appear at the veterinary clinic, it will not generate new ones.
You can change settings "DoNotGenerateSickPets" from 1 to 0 to change that.

The game will use only current pets with owners to appear at the park, it will not generate new ones.
The game will not generate homeless pets at the park.
You can change settings "DoNotGeneratePetWalkersAndHomelessPets" from 1 to 0 to change that.

The game will not generate aliens in disguise.
You can change settings "DoNotGenerateAlienInDisguise" from 1 to 0 to change that.
