Stages of Plumbot Aging Glitch
Stages of Plumbot Aging Glitch
A glitch that shows from celebrating plumbot's birthday to the glitch transformation

This tutorial is for The Sims 3: Into the Future only.

Plumbots cannot age as they are immortal/ageless, just like the SimBots and servos. But they can be aged up either by activating the testingCheatsEnabled true cheat, shift-clicking the plumbot that you wish to age up, and choosing "Trigger Age Transition"; or when a message shows that it's their birthday, which is a glitch. Once they age up, they will become invisible. Although this is potentially harmless for the game, it is probably not recommended to let them be glitched.

This tutorial will help you on how to restore the invisible plumbot.

Step 1. Click Customize Plumbot

Customize the plumbot with the bot workshop. It can customize itself or let another Sim do it for the plumbot. Wait until the CAB (Create-a-Bot for short) loading screen appears.

This method requires you to have saved your plumbots in the plumbot bin beforehand, by clicking the ellipsis button at the corner of the plumbot's thumbnail and clicking "Save to Plumbot Bin".
