Important Install Instructions:
This mod has a script component. The included .ts4script file must be placed directly in your mods folder or at most only 1 subfolder deep.
Do NOT rename the .ts4script file. It WILL break the mod.

This mod is still a work in progress. Please report any issues.
Hybrids are not officially supported by EA, so some issues are unavoidable.

Update: 2020-10-9 This new release contains all the additional features of the previous version plus these new additions:

Update: 2020-10-4Added a preview version of the next release to test out additional bugfixes and features. Please report any bugs.

Recommended Mods:

While this mod doesn't "require" any packs, it's almost pointless to use on its own without any occults in your game.
The only benefit you would get is the ability for the needs panel to properly work with any custom need added by mods.

Tired of your hybrids glitching out in CAS? Upset that your vampire-mermaids can't access their perk tree? This mod is for you.
This mod solves many of the issues plaguing hybrids in the sims 4. Now you can safely play hybrids without fear of the game randomly deciding to break your sims.
Some of the main features are:
  • Safely take your hybrids into CAS and save them to your gallery without the fear of the game deleting their occult forms. Sim must spawn in live mode at least once to enable this protection.
  • Allow servos to become vampires, witches and aliens.
  • Properly render spellcaster charge and curses for spellcaster-vampire hybrids.
  • Mermaid hybrids correctly switch to and from their tail forms without being stuck swimming on land.
  • Newly-generated aliens no longer have their human form re-randomized (intended for story progression mods which populate towns with sims from your gallery).
  • And many more...

Perk Access
New interactions in the vampire and magic menus allow you to instantly select the visible perk bar/button.

With this mod, you will be able to access your hybrid's perks based on their current form (if the make_occult_type_match_form option has not been disabled).
The needs panel will update as your sim changes forms.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look at the animated images in the spoiler below to see what I mean.

Note: While in a form without a perk tree (alien, mermaid) the mod will prioritize the display of the vampire perk bar. Spellcasters are given priority while in human form.

.INI customization: EXPERIMENTAL
This mod includes a .ini file which you can edit in any text editor to change the behavior of the mod.
The mod works "out of the box," and you don't need to change anything if you don't want to.
If you ever want to restore the default settings, simply delete the file and the mod will create a new one when you relaunch the game.
Note that you must restart the game for any changes to take effect.
Should the .ini file customization cause too many issues for users, it is likely that I will remove it and just modify the mod to have everything enabled by default.

The settings are as follows:

This mod does not override any game resource files and should be compatible with any tuning mod.
This mod includes the functionality of these mods of mine and should not be used together with any of them. Please uninstall them as this mod contains all of their functionality:
This mod modifies the behaviors of the following script classes and may run into compatibility issues with mods that completely override their behavior:
  • OccultTracker - The behavior of this class has been heavily modified. Any mod which significantly alters the occult system may have compatibility issues.
  • TraitTracker - modifies the "_send_commodity_list_msg" function which determines which needs are displayed in the needs panel.
  • AppearanceTracker - modifies the "evaluate_appearance_modifiers" function to properly display appearance modifiers on hybrid sims.
Additionally. the mod also overwrites the following script commands:
  • cas.plan_batuu_outfit - modifies the plan batuu outfit command to force the sim into human form to prevent accidental changes to a sim's occult forms.
