This can be done by pressing Shift Ctrl C, then entering that code, then pressing the moodlet and using Ctrl-click to get rid of it.
A Sim who has a Moodlet Manager can use it on the Sim Bot to achieve the same outcome.
This is consistent with the belief that The Sims 3 is set 50 years before The Sims 2 and 25 years before The Sims, and has led to speculation that Sim Bots are prototypes for Servos.
Servos from The Sims 2 appear as golden statues in the science labs, so it appears that they are a long-term goal. Sim Bots have most of the same needs as human Sims, except for hygiene.
In addition, Sim Bots will generally have the Brave trait, though it appears that some do not.
However, it is noted that almost all (if not all) invented Sim Bots will have the Brave trait.
This is most reliably reproduced by having a Sim Bot attempt to repair or upgrade an electrical object on top of a puddle, such as one created by turning a gardening sprinkler on indoors; but it can also occur during failed repairs or upgrades, from getting caught in an electrical trap, or other ways in which a Sim may be electrocuted.
Making a Sim Bot sleep in the Cursed Sarcophagus of the Kings for an extended period of time will replace one of the Sim Bot's traits with the Evil trait.
They harken back to Servos, however they differ in many important aspects.Additionally, the piece which connects the torso and pelvis is longer and narrower on female Sim Bots.While Sim Bots can eat food, they prefer scrap, and a single piece will completely restore their hunger and provide the Great Meal moodlet.It has been reported Even though Sim Bots are hydrophobic, they have no problem mopping up puddles of water or being sprayed by a sprinkler.However they will short circuit if commanded to play with the sprinkler.During this time, other Sims can repair the Sim Bot, or can choose to Reprogram them, which allows a reselection of their traits, including the ability to remove all of their traits.There seems to be no lasting damage from shorting out a Sim Bot, so it can be useful for redesigning the personality of a newly created Sim Bot, as the only other opportunity to select traits without using cheats is the Mid-life Crisis reward.Sim Bots come online with automatic ranks in both the Handiness and Inventing skills.Instead of calling a repairman or having a Sim repair the Sim Bot, the player can use the testingcheatsenabled cheat to remove the "Short Out" moodlet.This will make them interrupt what they were doing and cancel the whole action queue, and they won't be able to get back to what they were doing by themselves: this is not limited to the first meeting with the Sim Bot: any time a Sim Bot leaves the Sim and return to the range of the Sim, this reaction is triggered.Male and female Sim Bots differ in the structures of their heads and torsos.
