works with current October 2020 patch


Are you annoyed by the FX from city living and its patch that plays whenever your sim is skilling in a lot that contains a beneficial lot trait. With this mod, (originally made for the base game lot traits by cinderellimouse) you won't have to worry about the lot trait FX ever playing above your sims head again. So all you picture takers and movie makers can add lot traits such as home studio, child's play, etc, and gain the skill benefit without the annoying head FX which doesn't even disappear when you press tab. This mod also hides the heart effect over patients in the doctor career and the head FX when the DJ uses feel the crowd.

I saw your comment before I downloaded so I was prepared, otherwise I would've been a bit confused when the prompt came up about the duplication since I organize mods by modder.

is it updated?

Forgiveness is more than saying the words,"I forgive you".You must try to understand how they could do such a thing to you. When you understand what has led them to that act, you may be able truly forgive them.

The mod should be fine since it doesn't look like there's any new lot traits added. I played with it installed last night post patching and everything was okay.

This mod works really well with the newest game version (1.45.62.1020) and it got rid of those effects I absolutely hated so much. Thanks so much for making this!

The only headline effects that show up on mine are for University. This mod is updated for pre-Uni, so if you are getting them at University too, that's why. I don't think the mod author has Uni yet, probably waiting for Holiday specials. Which is smart. So, I'm going to check back mid January. The mod works fine for everywhere else.

I still have the green stars show up. I think those are from Parenthood. So far, those are the only ones in my game that aren't nuked by this mod and I have all of the packs...

Appears to work with the June update as well! Tried it on a University Dorm I made where I'd added traits, the light bulbs were infuriating me but I haven't seen them since I installed the mod :D

Sparkles be Gone!
Oh, my goodness!!! You are a lifesaver!!! :o I was playing The Sims 4 just now and I was finding the sparkles annoying and intrusive. So, I looked around, found one mod but it doesn't exist and then I found this mod and I'm so happy! ^_^ Ahh, goodbye annoying sparkles. Lol! AND it is kept updated! Wonderful!
