Update: I found that the perks were still able to go through in some circumstances. I have updated the files to v1.01 which should hopefully prevent this from happening. If you've already downloaded this mod, please re-download it. Thank you and my apologies!

As I was finalizing this mod, I learned that there is a similar mod made by salovas17 titled No Fame Quirks. While the principal is the same, our methods are different enough that I feel like it is still worth it to share this mod.

This is a tuning mod that makes it so that fame quirks introduced by Get Famous are not automatically unlocked.

There are two zip files to choose from: an all-in-one zip which will disable every fame quirk's unlock process and a separated zip which will have all the quirks as different files in order to allow you to pick and choose between them. Only download one zip!

More details below. I'll keep it brief so I don't waste your time.

What's the difference between this and No Fame Quirks?

So what did you do? Give me the details!

Modified files and compatibility.

Thanks to salovas17 for creating the No Fame Quirks mod-- even if I wasn't aware of its existence until the last minute, I appreciate its existence!

Oh thank you! I enjoy the acting-career but I find it nothing short of ridiculous that actors (who have to practice acting, after all) can even get the vain street-quirk.

Updated to v1.01. If you downloaded this, please re-download it.
If you find that perks are still able to somehow go through, please let me know here. Evidently a whole night of both purposeful testing and organic play wasn't enough to iron out all kinks!

Nice work! I thought about doing my own similar to this, but I got lazy and just opted for turning it all off forever.

Hello I have a question. I've been happy with this mod for a long time but today, suddenly, my sim got paparazzi darling quirk. I had a look the mods folder and I definitely have 'no paparazzi darling quirk' mod in Mods folder. Is it still working fine for everyone here? I had a mission 'deal with paparazzi 3 times', and my sim bribed them with money, then she got this quirk straightaway.

Oh I didn't see the updated version. Sorry I can redownload it. Always Great Thanks!
