@GIammeow  Alas, my understanding is that they've been trying to patch hybrids out of being produced (and I think they succeeded for a while) but do not intend to patch hybrids into functioning in a non-glitchy manner. This makes me sad because I like the idea of hybrids and have had them born in game as well, but.... they're not supported. 

 

I'm not sure how (or if) they plan to handle in-game reversal methods not working.  They worked for me and my friend the last few times we've had hybrids, but that was several patches ago.

 

I don't think they work on every bug reported in the forum, only those that affect a large number of users in a way that they can consistently reproduce. I don't work for EA but that's my impression.  That's why it's important to click "me, too."

@xochiquetzl_xkvn same, I was actually happy to see she had both powers and even both appearences, when she grew up to a teen sim. But I got confused when the CAS wasn't working properly and the mermaid tail wouldn't disappear. They could fix only that and we would be happy! Hahah but yep, the reversal methods didn't work. You could try and see if it's general or it was just bad luck for me.
Ah well... It is what it is, thank you both for the explanations and help! Will be patiently waiting for updates on this ~

@midKnightredd Did you delete your cache files after removing mods ?

 

Also did you try taking the mermaids in question to CAS after removing mods and back to see if the problem gets solved ?

Totally unsupported suggestion, but Iced Cream’s hybrid stabilizer mod was originally created for this problem in hybrids. (Honestly, I think it just pops mermaid off the Sim when leaving a body of water and pops it back on immediately after.) Maybe it would help?

@xochiquetzl_xkvn The cheat for removing the spellcaster trait is different from the other two, is that correct?

@GiardiniDiMarzoYes. 

 

But since you asked, I googled, and...

I don't know why they chose to name the trait that, but they did.  There's not really anything enforcing a convention other than "house style," if I understand correctly.

@midKnightredd Hi!  I don't know about the mod that @xochiquetzl_xkvn suggested but the only time I've seen that issue was when I attempted to make a mermaid / spellcaster hybrid.  That doesn't mean it's the only thing that can cause this issue.  I was just wondering if your sim was a hybrid too.  If not, I suggest following @crinrict 's advice, then come back to let them know if it worked or not.  Good luck!!

@JonaO703 @midKnightredd  Yeah, I have a save with a mermaid who's married to a spellcaster, so I'm quite familiar with this glitch.  :D

 

I've never seen it with non-hybrids, but if the mod helps hybrids with the issue it might also help non-hybrids with the issue, too.  I've never seen it on a non-hybrid so I can't test it for you, but it's worth a shot.
