Behold, a new trait that can transform your ordinary Sim into a robot! Inspired by The Sims 3: Into the Future and http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=536363 these tattoos that make your Sim look like a robot. Robots build skills 2x as fast as regular Sims and have needs that never decay (which needs never decay depends on the flavor you choose). This mod comes in five flavors: Robot, Sleepless Robot, Hybrid Robot, Artificial Intelligence, and Sleepless Artificial intelligence. You can have multiple installed at once, but don't give multiple robot traits to one sim.

Sleepless Robot


Robot



Hybrid Robot:

Artificial Intelligence:


Sleepless Artificial Intelligence:



Known issues:
  • After you create your robot Sim, their needs will not be full. This can be easily remedied by using testingcheats true > shift click on them > cheat need > make happy (which fills all of their needs).
  • If you leave any robot Sims at home their needs will decay while your other Sim(s) are gone. This can be remedied by the above method.
  • If you have a lot of custom traits installed, there will be some past where the screen ends that you won't be able to select. This is because there isn't a scroll bar, and to my knowledge there is no fix for it.

If you create a trait similar to this I would love to hear about it! This mod is very basic because I don't have any experience to do anything other than the bare minimum. For example, I wanted to create a 'beta' version where there was a small percentage that it would have a glitch (dazed emotion for 4 or so hours), but I couldn't figure out how to add buffs.

Repaired Mods
Hi Everyone,

I was a big fan of the robot traits too and I was really sad that along the way one of the EA updates made this great idea not work any longer.
However, I did some research and I believe that the problem could lie in the june 2016 update which broke a lot of trait mods beside this one.

To save us all came Zerbu who created a tool so that everyone could fix their own trait mods.

I tried fixing the specific flavors "Hybrid Robot" and "Sleepless Artificial Intelligence" and it looks like my Robo-Maid returned to its original functionality (tested with base game ver. 1.27.80.1020)

I'm attaching a rar of all the flavors corrected in the same way hoping that you all can enjoy your robotic friends once again.

@Captainkyokyo: please let me know if this is not ok with you for any reason, I'll be sure to amend immediately. And thanks again for this wonderful mod!

@Everyone Else: I'm no modder at all! I'm just a little girl in a big modder world! If I messed something up, please let me know and help correct my mistakes >_<

Hello! Any chance you're able to fix up the repaired robot traits mod Azuki?

The latest patch on 4 Nov 2017 killed all traits and a lot of other scripting mods.

I really appreciate the update, Azuki! You did good work for allegedly not being a modder!

Unfortunately, the latest update seems to have broke this again (thanks EA), but luckily Zerbu put out a test release of their Mod Constructor on November 21, so hopefully that can be used to fix this again.

@All: I've been looking into it but I'm not a modder, and I'm unfamiliar with most modding tools. I think it can be (re)done, but I'd need to start from scratch, and I'm not entirely sure how to stop emotions from happening

EDIT: Okay, I think I have it figured out, but I do have to rebuild the traits from scratch. The test trait I've put together seems to be working so far...

I'll try that link. Nope. This mode no longer works with the current updates that Origin did. @Captainyoko These traits are not listed when you make a new sim for the family. However, they randomly pop-up when you age up a sim in the family. Can you please fix this issue if you're not busy with college or real life stuff. There's no rush.

I fixed it (for now)
Just finished making a new and updated version that works with the game version at the time of posting. Contains all the traits from captainkyokyo's mod and I'm also giving credit to Azuki Kurenai for giving me the idea of fixing it. This might be different from how it worked before as I did not discover this mod until after its latest fix was broken (I only recently returned to Sims 4 after about 2 years and MTS in general after not having used it since Sims 3 expansion 4 or 5 came out {I used to have a different account and had played and used MTS for Sims 2 before it stopped working on my, at the time new, computer and Sims 3 was almost as devoid of content as my wallet was of cash}).

I just recreated the listed effects and description text for each one in Mod Constructor V3. For the emotionless ones I made the traits' core buffs give a +10 fine moodlet because I couldn't find info on any other way to do it online. So I guess that with enough boosting they might gain some emotions?

Also I noticed that, although I did disable need decay, when eating the bladder need might decay, but I am not certain (it had one red arrow but there was no noticeable decrease). Shouldn't be a problem as you won't really be eating after you've boosted it back up to full, but I thought I should mention it in case it also applies to other actions in game.

In the interests of full disclosure I do not have all expansion, game or stuff packs (only ones in first 3 bundles, vampires, collectors edition and free stuff), so if it doesn't work then that may be why. I have not tested robot or hybrid robot as they were just slightly tweaked versions of sleepless robot and as I do not usually make mods it took me quite some time and I really needed to stop for the sake of my sanity.

I might update it if I notice that it breaks again, I find a problem while using it or if I find a better way to make emotionlessness be a thing.

TL:DR I fixed it (kinda) here is everything.

While I like the idea of kwaiistacie mod, I just need this mod for the "sleepless" part. Maybe should just try to create one for my own use someday...
