Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This Mod is Compatible with BASE + WA + HELS + AMB + FLS + LN + OLS + GEN
--------------------------
Patch 1.22/2.16/3.12/4.9/5.7/6.4/7.2/8.0 Compatible

What This Mod Does:
This mod allows you to add more traits to your Sims without having to use AwesomeMod. By saying this I mean, once you add the new traits to your Sims, they actually become functional within your game. So, for example, if you add the charismatic and great kisser trait, under the 'special' option on your Sims menu.. you will now have those two NEW options that you can use along with any other traits that you have previously added. For this to work.. you do, however, have to have Twallans Master Controller mod installed. You can find that here: http://www.the-isz.com/nraas/index.php?topic=80.0. To add more traits to your Sim, simply select your Sim, click on 'Master Controller' --> Advanced --> Traits. Then a window pop-up with all of the traits that you can add to your Sim. If your Sim already has a trait, it will have 001 next to the trait name. Any trait that your Sim does not have is 000.

Known Issues:
1. A user without a ScriptError mod installed will simply see their Sim reset (upon aging up). If a user does have a script error mod installed, they will receive the pop-up error. The Sim resetting itself is just a minor inconvenience, however the user will need to set the traits using the Shift-Click "Modify Traits" afterward. To avoid this, you can move onto a different family in town before an age-up occurs, as inactives are unaffected by the issue.<-- Thanks to Twallan for pointing this out
2. I've also noticed that some Sims will not age up properly unless you drop down their traits to EA's default.. let them age up and then re-add all of the traits you had before. I have done this and it fixed my Sim from getting the error message that they did not age up at their birthday party.
This isn't really an issue -but-
3. Also, any Sim that is generated by the game will be automatically assigned the maximum number of traits allowable for their age due to this mod.

!!This mod IS compatible with AwesomeMod. AM already allows you to add more traits to your Sims, as well as some other traits that Pescado added. I'm not sure what the cap off is of AM allowing how many traits your Sims can have but I am currently running AM with this mod and have not come across any issues.

Settings:
There are 4 versions of this mod. The default settings for traits are as follows:
Young Adult and Older: 5
Teens: 4
Children: 3
Toddler: 2

For the _7 version of this mod.. the trait settings are as follows:
Young Adult and Older: 7
Teens: 5
Children: 4
Toddler: 3

For the _10 version of this mod.. the trait settings are as follows:
Young Adult and Older: 10
Teens: 7
Children: 5
Toddler: 4

For the _15 version of this mod.. the trait settings are as follows:
Young Adult and Older: 15
Teens: 10
Children: 7
Toddler: 5

For the version _20 version of this mod.. the trait settings are as follows:
Young Adult and Older: 20
Teens: 15
Children: 10
Toddler: 9

All of these numbers are the maximum amount of traits you can add to your Sim. If you have the _20 version and only choose to use 7 traits, the mod will still work correctly.

Compatibility:
This Mod is NOT compatible edits the TraitManager_XML file.

Core Mod?
This is NOT a core mod and should not interfere with any core mods installed.

Where do I install this mod?

No I don't The Super Computer is a VERY complex mod made by Twallan but it's a great addition to your game. I would advise you to download it . The reason why you need the SC in your game is because you can't edit that many traits with the testingcheatsenabled true (it caps off at 5). I tried to do it the other night, but didn't get the rest of the options. You could try it and see if it works for you, but I couldn't get it to work in my game. The SC is also useful for seeing non-selectable Sims wants/needs, etc. If you don't want to use SC, you could use the AwesomeMod, as this function is already built in. If you have AM, you hit ctrl + shift + c and type addtrait "green" and you should then have the green thumb trait or droptrait "family" and it will drop the Family Oriented trait

Happy Simming!

Does this also bypass the "only 5 traits" when traveling in WA?

It's a pretty nice mod, but could you do a modification on this mod like this?

Young Adult and Older: 7
Teens: 5
Children: 4
Toddler: 3

If you can't, I will not be bothered, but if you can, I'll be pretty grateful. (:
Thanks.

Yes.. the other photo uploaded with the mod shows a teenage Sim in China and she still has all of her traits. As stated in the main text, you might still receive a message telling you that you can't have that many traits or whatever, but just ignore it This mod overrides it.

thank you for this, it's a good idea but i think that 5 traits have always been enough for me.

well then, i guess this one is still out of my reach.

awesome mod and the super computer are far to complex already,
and to need them to run another mod, makes me nervous.

good job anyway!

You know the Super Computer requires no player intervention right? All you do is add it to your mods/packages folder and BAM.. it works on all PC's and Sims in the town. All it does is add a new menu option to them Also, Twallan is an incredible modder.. I would trust his mod over any mod you download here by ppl who sometimes don't know what they are doing lol If anything.. you could try to download it, add it to your game and if you don't like it.. take it out. It's not like AM where once it's in.. it has to stay..

Ok this made my day! I already use the SC (how can anyone live without it?) and I <3 traits so I'm going for 20. This should be sweet. Thanks so much!

BTW I do recommend the super computer to anyone. It's really really easy to use. I know nothing about modding, and I've had zero problems. It's added a new dimension to my game that I simply can't describe. (I can't use awesome mod because my computer is too slow - lags terrible. A shame because I do love that mod as well. No lag at all with the super computer.)

I don't see any point in this mod.

I am using TheSuperComputer since a few months and I already set my sims traits more than 5 (my current record is 11 normal traits + a few hidden traits at one sim but I know it could be more).

So what does this mod do that TheSuperComputer doesn't?

Is it that I can change more traits in CAS, when sim is agging up and by shift-clicking on sim in testingcheatsenabled mode?

#24 Old 7th Jul 2010 at 1:20 PM
I am so happy this mod came out! I don't think 5 traits are enough. Also, this is gonna sound stupid but I was wondering if this could be used with Awesomemod or will the game go boom?

I have always thought there were not enough traits for each age group so this is brilliant. Thank you so much.
