Maybe it's just a problem with the unauthorized version, but I made a "new" neighborhood (deleted all the default families, bulldozed most of the lots), a bunch of my own characters, and set aging off and story progression off so I could grow my neighborhood under a controlled environment, however I went to switch households and found that about 4 of my families, several of them single young adults, had somehow managed to have babies. so much for my controlled environment.

How do single men have genetic babies anyway? And doesn't having babies kinda defeat the purpose of turning off story progression?

It was already confirmed on MATY (Moreawesomethanyou.com) that several options in the game (Progression being one of them) are just ornaments in the game. The user doing the analysis stated that the progression option is not linked to anything, he was however able to fix it and will supposedly be releasing the fix.

Ah, thank you. I didn't mention it, but I also noticed that a few of my sims had gotten jobs while I wasn't playing them, and figured that should probably also not happen while progression is turned off.

Pescado.

Also keep in mind that if you play a different family, your other families will purge their inventories after a given amount of time.

In fact, this can happen, wether story progression is on or off.

Whenever one of your active characters starts a new career, the game checks if there is a boss and employees already assigned for this career. If not, it will randomly assign some. This will happen, no matter if story progression is active or not.
