  1. The remove mermaid trait cheat does not work. I’m running an HP, windows 10 computer with all expansions installed. Testingcheats was on, no mods

    1. It works fine for me. Easiest way to get rid of it then is eat 2 Mermadic Kelps in under 4 hours. (Find them in Build & Buy debug)

  2. The remove mermaid cheat did get rid of the mermaid skin but the UI still says Hydration rather than Hygiene so not sure it has worked properly.

  3. Hi Okay so on my daily tasks it says to survey ocean wildlife but when I click on bouyo it say mermaids would never be caught snorkeling very taboo. So seriously how the hell am I suppose to survey ocean wildlife. !!! Please help. Me thank you
