*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!

Do you think you'll be able to make another version of this mod where it only has the slider without automatically making teens shorter? I just want the height slider without making teens shorter, I just want to make sims of all different heights myself but not have my teens all be short I want to have tall teens too.

I have been excitedly following your progress in the Modding Discussion boards, but didn't think it was ready yet... Come on here today, here the mod is and seriously I would marry you right now. Like, right now. This is EPIC!! I have been waiting, hoping for a height slider and you deliver - you are definitely one of my favourite modders in the Sims 4 community, 100%! I gotta go to work, but I gotta try this out, lol - thank you so so much! All I'd love now would be a neck height slider (cheeky hint, hint?) and I will be complete, lol. Thanks again!!

Is there any chance you wouldn't mind making a seperate upload with just shorter teens?
I really like this, but I actually use the feet slider.

I don't know where else to put it, unfortunately.
