Vampire's Power & Weakness Bug Fixes

Maxis finally fixed this bug, so this bugfix is officially not needed anymore based on the latest patch, I'll keep the mod in here just in case

Ok, so this is my attempt at fixing bug that is vampire's power and weakness still lingering after being cured/reconfigured, only the powers/weaknesses that are listed in the descrptions below are fixed (hopefully) since it seems the rest of the vampire buffs are unnaffected with the bug





How to test whether the power/weakness is truly fixed:
The Power/Weakness bugs actually are not instant as soon as you reconfigure or cured your vampire, it will only happen when you travel to another lot or going into cas, to make sure the fix really work, travel to another lot/going into cas and check the moodlet/eat something or anything that can trigger the previous weakness/power that you had on your vampires to make sure it's really gone.

Compatibility :
Any mods that changes the xml required for the above buffs is incompatible
Compatible with 1.52 game version
Potential conflict with simvasion's vampire interaction fix Eternal Sadness' changes

This mod seem to fix some issues which I am very grateful for however if i use the "draught of reconfiguration", it only seems to work after i leave my lot and it sadly does not seem to save the changes for 2 weaknesses: "Insatiable Thirst" and "Eternal Sadness".

So basicly i use the drink > go change lot, I dont have the weaknesses, but then > save and exit > come back > weaknesses are back .
I would have to travel to another lot every time i want to load my changed vampire .

However ty very much for making this mod, as some other changes do seem to be saved.

Hmm...thanks for the warning.

This is a shot in the dark though, but are you also using simvasion's Vampire Fixes (since there's a thing in it that changes the Eternal Sadness animation)?

Yes I am, tried it with just this mod and with this mod and that mod included. Both dont fix the issue for me.

Did you delete "localthumbcache.package" from your Sims 4 documents folder between adding/removing? (Regardless, hopefully dhikaodonk can look into it. )

Not in between but i tried it later tho. Also I tried it with an entire new sim now in an entire new world (I just cheated to get to the highest rank) and the issue still persists.

I see lots of people complaining here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Repor...7168969/page/12

about the Withered Stumich one not being removed, however for me, that one does keep being removed after saving and reloading, I think that one happens correctly because of this mod.

Hi sorry for the late reply since for some reason mts didnt give me any notifications, I'm still playing in 1.52 since i'm still too lazy to update the game(mod compatibility issues and all that) I'm going to test some more later with Eternal Sadness, as for Insatiable Thirst I missed this particular weakness when making the mod so it still maxis original xml but someone reported to me that the weakness do get fixes despite me forgotten about it but I might fix this in next update.

Hi Guibmaster, I have updated the mod it should be working properly now. tested 24 sim hours and my vampire sim does not receive eternal sadness buff anymore.
please remember to delete localthumbcache and the old version and maybe other mods temporarily to make sure my mod does fix the 2 remaining weaknesses except mccc, ui cheats or mathcope vampire cheats if you have any of these. You can put all of them back up after testing the game

dhikaodonk, thank you so much! It works! I tested it first with no other mods like you said and then with my normal mods and both seem to work fine!! You have done what a whole team of professionals couldn't do for 2 years now! Thank you so much! I can finally play with my favorite sim again without her being broken!

Just for clarification, I do have " simvasion Vampire fixes " too: https://simvasion.wordpress.com/por...vampires-fixes/ and did not test every weakness or power ofcourse. The two problem weaknesses are gone but do you recommend we use that mod besides this one, or do you recommend to not use that mod because of possible conflicts?

Again, thank you so much for making this mod!! Can't believe I finally have my broken favorite sim back! This was plaguing me for a week now!

Hi All thanks for the support, as for the simvasion, yes you can use that mod, but if you know how to use sims4studio open his mod .package, you can delete Eternal Sadness entries from it then save and it will be compatible with mine.

OH YEAH! I now remember you said that before, IIRC.

UPDATE: I just did that. It actually wasn't hard at all. Thanks again!

From today's Patch Notes...

Fixed an issue where Vampires were exhibiting their old weaknesses even though they were not applied.

FINALLY.

That said, I do wonder exactly what the actual extent of the fix is...fingers crossed! (I would test it, but I'm on patch-related hiatus once again, so I'm no help here. )

Yeah just made announcement on my original post. im on a patch hiatus as well so I only base it around what I read. hope it actually doesnt just fix weakness, considering power is also affected.
