UPDATE March 9th 2019: Cleaned up, removed unnecessary files that may have caused conflicts, removed unnecessary code (many thanks to LittleMsSam!)

If you have Get Famous, and you decide to play a sim that stays out of the spotlight, each time you load that family, or leave the lot as in going to an active career then return, you get a Last Exception error because the game auto-assumes that all your sims are seeking celebrity status.

This is a little mod that stops that happening; basically what Maxis did was to place the routine to check and add/deduct fame points outside of any sanity or condition checks. I've simply moved it into one of those segments.

This will quite likely be only a temporary fix, since I would hope EA will fix such a glaring error in their next patch (and it really is a simple fix) so please treat it as only short-term

Simply place into your Mods folder. I've tested it on new and old saves, sims both in and out of the spotlight. If your sim is out of it. you -will- keep getting that 'On the road to fame' popup every time you load your home lot.

Conflicts: This mod will conflict with any package that overrides the following resource ID:
0000000000031583 - householdMilestone_Fame
