@Doei567 Not at all or only half as for the others? 

Would love to get a save with the issue so I can do some more testing

I am having the same problem. 

I tried the remove traits, and it works sometimes and still then only temporarily.

traits.remove_trait trait_CollegeOrganization_SecretSociety_Member worked for me with both my sims in different saves.

@Becca_Bear4215 Does it re-add the traits for you ?

I've tested a save yesterday but the traits weren't actually removed so I couldn't test too much.

Could you send me yours ?

Same issue. i tried the trait remove while sprite were active and nothing happens. my sim both quit the society and graduated and the sprites still follow her to her new home. 

 

its particularly annoy for me when the sprite shows up while my sim is sleeping so she gets tease moodlets all morning.

I am also having this problem. I used all of the cheats to remove the traits. Seemed to get rid of them at first, but when I reloaded the save, the sim was bugged again. No longer sees the sprites, but still gets 'pestered' and gets the moodlets. Interestingly enough, this sim never was able to please them, regardless of the socials he did... maybe something to do with him having been an NPC? And this is, unfortunately, the same sim that had the graduation bug in that other post I made; so apologies if there's weirdness associated with that.

 

I uploaded the bugged household to the gallery with the hashtags: #lookcrinrict #buggedhousehold and #torturedbysprites. Oh, and I think it may show up as "modded" because I have a mod that makes freckles genetic installed; it's a default replacement though, and shouldn't be passed along via the gallery. The one with the sprite issue is the blonde sim, Braden.

 

I'd upload the save, too, but honestly, it's so borked at this point that I'm not sure it would be helpful for singling out the cause of any single issue. Maybe someone out there has a cleaner one, with just this bug?

@fancypants28 It would be easier to test the save tbh. I don't mind other issues.

Ok doesn't look like it's letting me upload .save files directly so here's a SimFileShare link.
