Hi Bunnycute, sorry for taking so long to repond . To get rid of that you have to remove the "Dropout" hidden trait from your sim. you can do that using the remove trait option on the BetterSims menu or through the cheats menu>cheat sim info> remove trait

Hi ArmyDreamers, Unfortunately no, there asre some things you should avoid if you want to upload the sim to the gallery. If you are using my mod, your Sim might get gameplay traits that mark your sim as having CC, this also happens with Aspirations. Custom traits(even hidden ones) and aspirations will always mark your sim as having CC the only thing you can do is remove the traits and change the aspiration.

Yes, it's reported broken in Deaderpool's discord. The update might take some time, I hear.

Does the "I'm so Tired" world preference moodlet drain the energy need?

To me it still is, and it's so sad, because this mod spoiled me and now I don't want to play the sims without it

Same here... this is the BEST mod for TS4. It made me enjoy playing the game like never before. I keep checking for an update, hopefully soon!

I totally agree with nova2017 and others. I can't open my game until this has been updated. And that's the real shame when good mods come out but you are at the mercy of the creator. And I know real life happens, no blame here whatsoever. But still...my poor simmies are on pause because this mod, along with the right combination of some other realistic mods, combined...made their storylines so friggin amazing. I refuse to touch my game save until I can get an update! So I created another save to play until then.

According to Midiar's discord they are away for a summer job that is in a remote location and they do not have their laptop with them and only limited access to the internet. They will be finished that job towards the end of Sept, and are planning to update the mod then. :D
It's a wonderful mod, and luckily in my game it doesn't appear to be so broken that it is unusable. My sims still generate the appropriate reward traits. But I'm definitely looking forward to any updates when they are ready.

I wonder what people mean when they say this mod is 'broken' for them. I don't see any difference in the mod in-game. It still works the same for me!

Default Location Preference Issue
I keep getting location preferences when I don't want them on. I've went to settings and turned them off, they have the hidden trait saying it's disabled, but the location preference still gets put on and it's quite bothersome. Am I the only one having this issue?
