Removed the edited list order of the menu because it is no longer needed when there are now pickers for each trait type in my More Cheats Menu.
Updated Polish translation for AddTraitsMenu by livi for missing lines

The mod needs to be updated, traits do not have names in CAS and when getting to know sims in-game, the notification text is blue.

This looks neat since I think 3 traits is just too limiting. This is why I prefer Sims 3 in this matter.
Does it work automatically for age up? That'll be very helpful!

It's not working for me either.
I put "AddTraitsMenu" and "MoreTraitsMod_Option_10" in the mod folder.
All I have in Action is Form Group.

You need to extract the zip.

Do you try these steps:
Troubleshooting
Step 1: Check if your game is patched up to the newest version.
Step 2: Check if the "Enable Custom Content and Mods" and "Script Mods Allowed" are ON in Game Options. (You need to re-enable it after a game patch!)
Step 3: Does the mod's name appear on the list of mods running shown the game startup? No? Did you extract the zip file and put Package + Script together only ONE folder deep or directly into your Mod Folder?
Step 4: Did you remove any outdated versions of mods from the Mod folder? Did you download any of the conflicting mods stated?
Step 5: Check other FAQs https://sites.google.com/view/vickysims/faq

I get the same issue as well yet I cannot see what is wrong. All other mods (ex. more ambitions) work as they should. I THINK I have it set up right:

Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 4/Mods folder contains from this mod:
-chingyu_AddTraitsMenu.package
-chingyu_AddTraitsMenu.ts4script
-chingyu_LongLivedTraits.package
-chingqu_MoreTraitsMod_Option_3.package

I don't really care for more traits for pets so I opted out of any additional for them and thus also the "remove human traits for pets" option. I have tried with this enabled and it does not change anything.

Should those extracted files work if placed all directly in the /Mods folder? They are all detected by the game on startup and in the "custom content" menu.

If this looks as it should then it is probably some other issue and I will have to try other means of dealing with this.

Any of my mods with scripts should be only ONE folder deep or put directly in your Mod Folder. Any of the other mods e.g. traits should be FIVE or fewer folders deep in your Mod Folder.
Check if the "Enable Custom Content and Mods" and "Script Mods Allowed" are ON in Game Options too. (You need to re-enable it after a game patch!)

I love this mod, but I've noticed that since the game added Likes and Dislikes it's really hard to locate things in the 'Add Traits (Uncategorized)' menu since it's all jumbled up. Any chance we could reorganize them all alphabetically to make searching easier?

Default Traits not showing in menu
I managed to get the Survivor and Lasting traits to show in the Create a Sim menu, but none of those other traits listed show up no matter how much I fiddle with it. I looked in the Trait menu and in the rewards traits menu and can't get them to show up in-game.

I have the same problem. I am seeing all the files at startup when the window opens with all mods i have installed. I had it in .../Mods/Traits but since it didn't work i tried just putting it in .../Mods . It still doesn't work. I looked and I am on the latest patch at the date of this post and it says it is compatible to this version.
Weird is that I also see the Survivor and Lasting traits but I just don't have more than 3 traits to pick.
I did only put one of the option files in (nr. 28) as it said.
Hopes this helps in finding the problem

Hi I have your 2019 version of More Traits Mod (yeah I don't keep up to date with this stuff). Before I decide to download the newest version and remove the old one, will it default the personalities of my sims and make me have to add them all over again, or will they still keep those traits? I'm sort of a novice with mods and just want to double-check.
