Is there away to disable the reset of plumbot stands?

Post by Shirtless David » December 26th, 2018, 7:14 pm

So I made a city inspired heavily by Detroit: Become Human (futuristic world and humanoid plumbots) and when I tried to set up a store for androids (plumbots), I noticed that the androids on the stands got reset at midnight turning them into regular plumbots. I was wondering if there might be a way to counter this with a mod or by tweaking a game file.

There's nothing specifically resetting plumbots that I'm immediately aware of. Do you have your overwatch set to run at midnight? How are you creating these humanoid plumbots? Are you getting stuck check notices for these? Have you tried without these mods to confirm they are causing the issue?

I create them by building regular plumbots and tweaking them with MC (I followed these instructions: https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/discus ... ng-plumbot)
I don't think I ever messed with the overwatch settings but I'm gonna check if disabling overwatch solves the problem.
Thanks for the hint :)

Edit: So I tested it without Overwatch enabled and the stands got reset anyway. It also seems to reset stands with regular plumbots on them.I also got to add that by resetting I mean that the stands change their displayed plumbot.
Is there anything else I could do?

Remove the mods and see if it's EA doing the resetting. If not, try just without Overwatch installed and see if it's that one.

I just disabled every mod I have and tried it in a new neighbourhood, but the plumbots on the stands get changed anyway.

Disabling isn't the same as removing but it sounds like perhaps it is EA doing the changes then. I'm not sure much can be done. Not even sure what process would be doing that.

Well I disabled the mods by dragging the file on my desktop. So there is no way to stop it or to change what kinds of plumbots will be selected? It would definitely help building up immersion but seems like I'll have to live with it then. :/
