Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Ever wondered why trying to fiddle with your sims turn on/off's did not always have the results you expected?
They didn't work. Now they will work better.

Fixes bugs related to the attraction system.
These bugs remain present in all games since Bon Voyage (even if you patched)

- Wearing Glasses or Jewelry no longer sets the Lycanthropy trait.
- Jewelry now correcty sets the Jewelry trait.
- OFB business owners (self employed sims) no longer have the unemployed trait
- Managers employed in the OFB ownable jobs now have the hardworker trait.
- Robots no longer have a random hair trait.
Minor fixes.
- Plantsim detect code fix - Incorrect flag unset when EP not present.
- Witch detect code fix - as above. Same bug was cloned.

You must have at least one of these expansions to use (or need) this fix.
Bon Voyage, Freetime, Apartment Life, Mansion & Garden.

Lot Resets
If you have Bon Voyage as your latest EP, then this mod may cause your lots to reset when it is installed. See this feedback for more info. More feedback on this topic would be helpful.


The alien version replaces the useless broken 'custom hair' trait with something useful. It includes the same fixes as the standard version. Install only one.

Type: Fixed
