Fixed Attractiveness preferences selector not letting you deselect options

Reworked, Rebalanced, and Simplified Attractiveness
It's faster, cleaner, prettier, more stable, easier to understand, and ready to make an impact. Many aspects have been altered, simplified, combined with other elements, or simply removed to declutter.
⚠️Warning! Yes, this means that existing Sims Attractiveness preferences will be altered and their view of other Sims will change. There is no way to avoid it, progressing forward while sticking with the old system was simply not possible.
Oh, and icons now fit the style 🎉
Added Strong Attractiveness
Selecting or developing preferences can feel like it doesn't matter, making you think that the individual selected likes and dislikes just don't change much. That's where Strong Attractiveness can make your selections impactful.
With Strong Attractiveness you can select up to three likes and dislikes that are the most important and these will have the biggest influence on how others are perceived. If there's something specific you care about the most, make it a Strong Preference and it will have a strong impact.
Added the ability to 'Split Preferences Per Male & Female'
Sims that are open to relationships with everybody can now split their preferences into Male Sims and Female Sims. You can still select Universal preferences that will apply to everybody but are adjusted with Male/Female specific preferences depending on the perceived Sim.
Splitting Sims preferences is a manual action and requires manually selecting preferences. Developing preferences will only be done to Universal preferences.
Although Attractiveness Ambivalent Sims would ignore the looks of other Sims, that would not exclude them from the world of superficial refinement appraisal. Sims that are Attractiveness Blacklisted will not see or be seen by other Sims through the attractiveness feature.
Added support for personality traits made by Chingyu, Kuttoe, and Kiara to Impressions
Improved detection and handling of jealousy
Sims can now autonomously apply both a Tampon and a Pad at the same time
If you have Sims that keep both tampons and pads in their inventory and allow them to auto use both, that process is now faster and won't require two separate interactions.
Made overused pads/tampons only affect Sims with low hygiene
Added ability to manually apply condoms to other WooHoo participants
Improved consistency of autonomous birth control usage
Added support for the ChippedSim's School Tweaks Locker Overhaul mod
Sims with the 'Socially Avoidant' trait will simply never want to talk to anybody and other Sims will never try to talk to them. This works great with the Loner trait if you want to create a Sim that doesn't seek conversations. Otherwise, you can use it for Sims that you don't want to see being social in public.
Added ability to add/remove Wonderful Attributes via Relationship Panel
Improved random distribution of Wonderful Attributes
Added Pose functionality
If you're not aware, the Pose Player by Andrew available on the Sims4Studio forum is a widely used mod for anybody taking pictures in the game. I was often suggested to add an easy to use instant positioning interface... so I asked Andrew if this would be okay and here it is! Adult Sims can be posed with access to an instant positioning feature.
You should still keep the Pose Player by Andrew for your regular usage as this posing functionality doesn't support all Sims and doesn't work the same way.
Thanks Andrew 💜
Added Settings Profiles system
To keep settings reliable, they are no longer directly saved within the game save. Settings are now saved as independent external files called "profiles". Profiles can be used by any game save and altered at any time across all game saves that use the same profile. A new profile is created for every new game and subsequent game save slots will continue to use the same profile. You can make a profile with your favorite settings and use it in every game save, altering any settings will apply to every other existing game save or new game saves that use this profile.
Reworked save system
The save system is now completely integrated with the base game format, following standard conventions and solutions which assures stability and reliability.
⚠️ Warning! Saving the game with this new save system will prevent you from downgrading so make sure to save on a new save slot just in case.
