Re: [NEEDS INPUT] Some reward traits wrongfully say: Not available for robots

[ Edited ]

Me, too.
No mods, only have Seasons, Pets, and Get to Work.

 

Details I picked up are: 
- child says it for gym rat and fertile and steel bladder. I already have steel bladder and the other two would not normally be available for her anyway.

- teen, same thing, but she already had gym rat and steel bladder. Fertile is apparently unavailable to teens, too.

- young adult (aged during observation) had Fertile listed as unavailable to robots during teen phase, can now access it. 

  - Storm chaser (bought as teen) is listed as already bought. 

  - gym rat, steel bladder, and waterproof (already bought) are listed as unavailable to robots.

 

So if I had to guess, the reasons it's not available change, but not the availability.

My sims should not be robots. I have no mods or expansions.

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.69.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know. It just started after the last update.
What happens when the bug occurs? Some traits say that they're not available to robots. Specifically Forever Fresh and Steel Bladder. I didn't check the others.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to buy traits for my sims, because they've saved up enough satisfaction points for them.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It appeared after the latest update. I don't have any mods or expansions, but I do update the game whenever Origin wants to.

This is a game I've been working on for some time.  When I finally saved up the 8000 points for the next Trait, I found that it was greyed out, and hovering over it says that it's not available to robots.  I've tried modifying my sims in CAS, using CAS.fulleditmode, and using the "Reset Object option.  I don't know if there is any console command to make them stop being robots, but if there is, I can't figure it out.  Please help!

I'm having the same issue with my sim. I tried to buy the fertility trait and it said "not available for robots". Has this been fixed yet? Frown

★★ Guide
@skyemuu It used to say "either not available for Teens, Children, or all ready purchased." The Fertility reward trait is not available to children, Teenagers, and becomes available at young adult if not pregnant or in the middle of aging. The Gym Rat trait don't become available until after child sim becomes teen where they have access to the other asperation goals.

Re: my sim is randomly a robot

★★★★ Novice

I have the same problem.I have the latest update on EVERYTHING and MCCC, and I know it is fine because i tried everything and it's still doing it. PLZ HELP! I'm using a teen and and before the 12/12 update it was not doing it. I think that when the devs updated the game, it did this, just saying.
