Discover University spirits wouldn't go away

Ive already left the local Secret society, but those annoying little sh*ts still appear every ingame day. Is there a way to get rid of them permenantly?

@FakeNerdGuy Merged your post with existing bug report on this

Please click me too on the first post

If you could upload your Sim to the gallery so I can check something, that'd be great.

I'm experiencing the same issue, i couldn't find any hidden traits to remove through mc command center, so i'm out of ideas outside of deleting the moodlets manually. I've uploaded my sim to the gallery @crinrict under "university bug", you'll have to include cc (username is llaurawho, same as here), hope it helps

SAME! My Sim isn't even in University anymore! Now I wish I hadn't joined the Secret Society at all.

@llaurawho Great thanks

 

--------------------------

 

EDIT: Oh well, seems this doesn't work. They come back anyways. It was worth a try. Thanks all for your feedback.

Could you all try the following

1. Open the cheat console and type: testingcheats true
2. Make sure the Sim with the issue is active
3. Type in cheat console: traits.remove_trait <traitname>

 

Trait name being:

trait_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_Member

or/and

trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_Med

trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_Low

trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_High (? Don't know if this exists)

 

or as complete cheats

 

  • traits.remove_trait trait_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_Member
  • traits.remove_trait trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_Med
  • traits.remove_trait trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_Low
  • Possibly also: traits.remove_trait trait_Organizations_SecretSociety_Favor_High (don't know if this exists)

Feel free to experiment. I didn't test which one needs removing.

 

 

EDIT

 

I THINK i found what's causing it but I need volunteers to thoughtfully test this for bad side effects.

 

I do not know if all cheats are required or only some but I think this bug has several stuff that should get removed

 

Backup your save before attempting

 

On top of the cheats above, there's a timer on the Sims that counts down for the sprites to appear. You will need TwistedMexis Cheat Fix Mod to remove this timer. I checked with my Uni sim that never was in the secret society and she doesn't have this timer, which is why I think, that should cut it.

 

You are doing this at your own risk, I haven't thoroughly tested this and I have no idea if it has side effects. I tested with the save fancypants sent me and ff through 2 days. They didn't come back.

 

Anyways, put in the mod and then make sure the Sim with the issue is selected (testing cheats also needs to be on) and enter

 

  • stats.remove_stat commodity_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_SpriteVisitor_Timer

Let me know how it goes.

Happy Gaming

@crinrict Removing trait_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_Member seems to be working for now. Thanks!

@crinrictI also tried traits.remove_trait trait_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_Member after enabling cheats and can confirm it also worked for me.

 

Thank you very much!

I can't try as I deleted my game and started again. But I'm glad a workaround has been found. Hopefully this is fixed soon.
