How Can I Stop Social Groups Influence
Jock, Nerd, Rebel influence can be disabled using Relativity
See settings by - Sarah_Sims Sarah_Sims On Her Tumblr Page
OR
See Social Groups Influence Be Gone by Buckley at MTS

- Sarah_Sims Sarah_Sims in Chatterbox recently elaborated further with these steps to take. I have tried them out and it sure stopped the Social Group Influence in my game.

To remove existing social group influence skills from all sims:
1. City Hall/Computer > NRaas > MC > Sim > Advanced > Skill Level
2. Click the "x" to cancel the "Select Criteria" dialog
3. Select (All) > Accept
4. Select "Jock Influence", "Nerd Influence" and "Rebel Infuence" > Accept
5. Enter "-1" for each one. Ignore the fact it says "Range: 0 to 10".

Then you need to remove any existing social group hidden traits from all sims that have them:
1. City Hall/Computer > NRaas > MC > Sim > Advance > Traits > Change
2. In the "Select Criteria" window, click "Trait" > Accept
3. Sort the list by Type to bring the hidden (H) traits to the top
4. Select "Jock", "Nerd" and "Rebel" > Accept
5. Select each sim in list > Accept
6. For each sim (named at top), sort the list by the "Value" column and look for "Jock", "Nerd" and "Rebel" traits where it says "Has" in that column then select them and > Accept
7. Keep going until you've gone through all the sims. Once you've done the last one, the window will just disappear

To make sure they don't earn any more Social Influence Gain from now on:
1. City Hall/Computer > NRaas > Relativity > Skill Gain Factors
2. Select "Jock Influence" > Enter 0 > Accept
3. Select "Nerd Influence" > Enter 0 > Accept
4. Select "Rebel Influence" > Enter 0 > Accept
5. Select "Social Networking" > Enter 0 > Accept


My Sims Are Constantly Running Everywhere Or Are Stuck In Sneak Mode

anchor:Which Mod FAQ
You have several choices :
  1. Install DebugEnabler and manually use its "Reset Walk" interaction to correct the issue
  2. MasterController's "Advanced \ Reset Sim" interaction will force the walk-style back to default.
    • Note that this approach resets a lot of things regarding your sim. If you only want to reset the walk-style, use one of the other approaches.
