*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!

Hey ! It's really awesome, congrats for your work, I guess everybody was waiting for that since a long time
I just have a question, Is it possible to have a separate version of the mod with only the height slider ? I think, I would prefer to change the height of my teens independently

I really hopes this kind of custom mods will inspire EA to include that kind of features in the base game.

I also have another idea. I guess is kind of hard to figure out, but you know, when you click on the body of the sim and those sliders for muscle and fatness appear, would it be possible to add this new height slider here ? For what I know, I would be pretty hard but with all the great modders we have in this community, maybe some day, I could be possible.

For me, the feet thing is nice, I didn't even know I could change the size of the feet of my sims :p

And thanks again for your work, that's impressive.

I've just tested v 1.1 very quickly. The teens in CAS seem to be defaulting to the shortest setting. They almost look like chimpanzees with the way that their body is proportioned hehe.

I can see this being a very good and useful mod once it is fine tuned though, so good work so far. The teens being the same height as adults really does bug me.

On adding the height slider to the fitness an fatness sliders, it's impossible currently, as the GFX files where the slider for them is stored is uneditable. I'll make a version with the teen height alteration removed tomorrow.

Thank you so much for this useful mod!
It would be interesting to have a version where the elders are automatically smaller as well, since elders do shrink with age. That'd be awesome. Just a suggestion though, no pressure

Can you show me pictures of what is happening? I tested it quickly by randomizing the sims and all of the teens looked, you know teens. This is a picture of two teens randomly generated.

Are these adult sims aged down? Or are they teen sims randomized?

Would it possibly work having the slider attached to the neck slider that is accessed from side view? Not the width of the neck from the front, but the back of the head. I only discovered that slider the other day and it doesn't really seem to be used that often, especially since hair covers it up?

Loving this mod, thank you! :D

I think the main problem about sims being out of proportion is because only the torso area seems to get shorter. Legs stay like the same, so the hip area doesn't fit anymore with the torso.

I'm doing an update to change it so that legs also get affected. It'll probably be released around the same time as the July patch though, which is Thursday!

Thumbs up!

It's a great mod nonetheless! It surely has a LOT of potential when fine tuned!

awesome. hope you improve it further because the body proportion as of now looks kinda weird (the hand length should change proportionally)
