I believe if you check "pregnancy" in the CTU, it will be pregnant-enabled, but it won't morph.

Yes, if you feel you really must get your female servo pregnant, open the body package in CAS Texture Unitool and go to the Part Category tab, click 'Valid For Maternity', and then save. The robot body won't get fatter, but it shouldn't turn into a human body.

You could modify the sphere to be bigger when pregnant

Both issues are now fixed and the download file has been updated - please re-download! And thank you for solving the mystery as to why the male head wasn't recolouring as expected!

LOL!! If someone who knows how to do that (I don't) would like to have a go, it would be fantastic!

Wow, that was fast! It takes me forever to update my own files.

Will test A.S.A.P!

*Edit* Looks great, and recolors superbly! Thank you!

Whoa, I didnt even think of that. I wonder if the ghost light on the energy sphere stays intact when servo becomes a ghost?

Hmm, very strange - so you put it in Mods\Packages, but the sim is showing up in CAS with the robot body but without the robot head? And you looked in the 'Hat Hairs' section of the Hair panel, to find the robot head and have your sim 'wear' it, but it's not there? If so, I'm stumped - no-one else has had this problem, and I can't understand why it wouldn't be there. Please let me know exactly what steps you took.

well, i put the mods in the correct folder(i used winrar), i booted up the game(Lasted patch and WE, no high end stuff). I created a new neighberhood and went into CAS. I cliked the premade sim option and brought up the servo. It was mising the head but had the body and a blue tinted head with brown hair. I have no idea what is the matter

Servo was from Open For Business, if I'm not mistaken. But you had to get the Robot Crafting Station and work your way up to him.

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.

Did you look in the men's Hat Hair section in CAS?

The file is fine - try downloading it again, maybe something got corrupted somehow during the downloading process.

Yes, Servo came with the 'Open For Business' expansion pack. You had to get one of your sims to buy a robot-crafting table and make one, and activate it. Once activated, it behaved mostly like a regular sim but with a few differences, such as doing all the household chores and standing outside to power down and recharge itself when it ran out of energy, rather than sleeping in a bed. It also talked in a cute robot voice that I wish it was possible to reproduce in TS3! So I gave mine the highest-pitched and nerdiest TS3 voice to try to make up for it.

If you play TS2 and don't have Open For Business but want some robots in your TS2 game, a creator called NovaL made several fantastic robots that work with just the base game - I had most of them in my TS2 game and they look great: http://www.modthesims.info/member.php?u=93596

I have tried downloading it several times, all with the same result. I used WinZIP & 7zip to open the file.
