*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!

First off, I just wanted to say thank you for your hard work and congratulations on achieving something that a lot of people wanted since the release of TS4.

I have tested the mod but found it to be a bit too..eh..aesthetically displeasing for my taste. I had to make my teens quite a bit shorter to even have a noticeable difference compared to adults, which resulted in tiny feet and abnormally long legs + arms. That said, this mod is definitely one to watch, and if there's ever a chance of incorporating arms/legs in the shortening process, I'll be more than happy to reacquire the mod. :-)

I was wondering, could you have "shorter teens" only version, that includes the slider, but disabling the user function in CAS? That way people have their shorter teens, but don't have to worry about loosing the foot slider or bothering with the slider while creating sims?

I'm not the best at coding, so I have no idea if this is a good idea or not! lol

This is a great mod, I have been waiting for a long time for this. But do you think you can separate shorter teens and height slider into their own files so I can have the height slider without the teens automatically becoming shorter?

Just tested the 1.5 version. LOVE the shortening legs, wish the arms would shorten as well. Is there a way to amplify the strength of height decrease (and increase) per feet movement? Right now to achieve half a head off in height one would need to turn their sim's feet into lotus feet.

Edit: The latest version decreases (or increases) the torso and leg length. Would it be possible to also decrease (or increase) neck length? That would certainly help the overall height change.

Kisses for your hard work!

I've now tried both version 1.1 and 1.5 but neither of them seem to work when altering the automatic height of my Teens. I had a child Sim age up and he ended up just as tall as normal and I then tried creating some new Teens in CAS but they all started out at the original Adult height as well. Using the randomise button didn't do anything other than change their appearance and clothing but their heights never changed.
