@debstaymetal Have you taken the mods out and tested it?

Yeah :/ I tried repairing the game as well, but the servo sims still looked the same

@debstaymetal : The damage is probably already done in the case of Sims who turned into Servos. See if leaving out mods keeps any more ofthem from changing, though.

I waited a while to see if anything would happen after removing my mods and today I noticed another sim had turned into a servo Frown

Yup. I played with my current household for a while with an empty mods folder, and once I went back to the sims manager screen, I noticed another sim had turned into a servo. The ones that turn are sims that I have interacted with before during my gameplay, but never played with them directly, idk if that makes a difference or not.

@debstaymetal I'm going to mark this as Needs Info to see if anyone else is having his issue. Especially if there a non-mod user that has it.

★★ Guide

Since you have Get Famous, can you check if a servo that's part of your household / that you know has the "Trendsetter" perk? On a Sims Discord channel someone else with this issue sourced it to that. Servos are indeed Sims with special clothes, which is why https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-DU-Random-portrait-of-servos-after-graduation/m-p/... and https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-GTW-DU-Servo-is-pregnant-after-Abduction/m-p/84398... happen.

 

Note: I do not have Get Famous and cannot reproduce this one myself.

No one has that perk :/ and one thing I noticed is that if I leave two of those transformed sims as servos, the game won’t auto generate more. But if I delete them then a new sim is turned into a servo. I wonder if the game just has some sort of necessity to have servos and as none of my sims have built one, it just transformed other sims into one .-.
