So what are playable NPC's? They are sims who get involved with my regular playables for a significant amount of time (not just girlfriend/boyfriend of the week), but where the relationship ends for one reason or another, or where they have been in a relationship for quite some time but they aren't engaged or married yet.
They are also sims who start a relationship all on their own, when I play a dorm or a community lot, or something else.
My playable NPC's don't have their own updates, but I do play them the exact same way I play my regular playables, which is 1 week per round. I follow the same rules with my playable NPC's as I do for my regular playables for everything. So they aren't that different from my regular playable, they just don't have their own updates.
At the moment I have about 18 playable NPC-family. I know that is a lot, but from some I'm sure they will eventually end up with one of my regulars.
But I do love them, I just couldn't write them off, and I love adding new genetics to my game and playing them without having to worry about getting out a good story.
