*DEPRECATED*

A new mod will be coming out soon to replace this. Stay tuned!


Okay, forget about earlier hope that we could have height sliders on child sims, it doesn't seem to work no matter how I do it, so unless someone discovers how to make sliders for children, it won't exist for quite a while.
No, I can't make shorter teens without the height slider, please stop asking.


Are you ready for the first custom slider for The Sims 4? And do you also like shorter teens? Well, I've got you covered with my Height Slider
and Shorter Teens Mod. This mod adds a slider that teens and older can use, the effect of the slider is that it makes a sim tall or short.

To access this slider simply click and drag on the feet of the sim, note that with this mod, you can't modify the feet.


The second part of the mod, Shorter Teens, shortens teens newly created and newly generated by the game.

To make your existing teens shorter and grow as they age into an adult, simply enter "cas.fulleditmode" then "testingcheats true" and then shift click on them to access the CAS screen and then change your sim into a child, then back into a teen. Your Sim should now be shorter!

EDIT: It seems that something changed when I modified some of the files. I'll try to look why this part of the mod doesn't work. Before it used to say that teens existing in the game would also get the change.

Note that if your sim is a teen and less so on the older stages, and you slide it to the shortest setting, the sim will look disproportionate.
EDIT: This should be fixed now!


I've put up a family with their heights changed, search by #heightslider on the gallery, but make sure to check Include Custom Content first, or they won't show up!

Some animations look weird with this mod, like kissing if the sims are different heights. The thumbnails get messed up so your sim's portrait in the speech bubbles look weird. Also, leg animations on teen sims and short adults are less than optimal.

To uninstall, simply delete the package.

Flavors
Height Slider and Shorter Teens Mod - The regular version. Use this if you want both the height slider and short teens!
Height Slider Only - Use this if you want the height slider but not shorter teens!

Changelog:

Maybe you could use the back of the neck slider. That seems like a less used slider.

Okay, been testing it for a bit and I had some issues.

Clothing unfortunately seems not to form to the shorter body unfortunately, so it looks weird (in the belly/hips area).
I installed the mod, went to my household who has a teen in it, and he was still the same size as before.

The clothing issue can be fixed if custom content makers can make shorter clothing fitting the standard shorter teen body though.

Nice one! I saw the thread in the modding discussion section and hoped this would be completed - I know that in the past, other modders had asked EA about making a height slider but been told it would 'not be easy' to do. Yet you've done it. Even if it has issues, it's a big step in the right direction.

This is a bug, to fix the teens not being short in CAS, simply create another sim. The teens in the game not being short is a bug and I'm looking into it, as I swear, it worked for me a few hours ago!

I also found that if they don't shorten when aged down or aged up randomize the body. Also like said above there is a problem with the hips for teen more so for males then females. Also if you find a way to so that the entire skeletal structure changes and not just the torso that would be great. This mod has great potential and I'm sure once it is refined it will be 10x more amazing then it is now

EDIT:Testing new version. Male teens max&minimum is shorter then female teens max&minimun.

I'm working on an update that make legs shorter or longer, depending on how tall your sim is.

So glad to see that you managed to move it from the thighs to the feet. Makes much more sense.

I try it, but is still not working. In CAS the icons show me always male sims taller, female sims "normal" heights.
And when i´m playing nothing shown. And the feets are looking weird.
I will try this mod again, when it is updated.Thank you for your work.
