Note: These don't affect the chance of your sim being right-handed or left-handed, it simply makes the traits visible in your sim's Simology panel as shown below.

Note: It also doesn't make the traits available in Create a Sim. You still need a cheat or a different mod to change your Sim's dominant hand.

Back again with another little mod.

This time I decided to make the Left-Handed and Right-Handed traits visible in the Simology panel. I thought it would be an interesting thing to know about my sims and thought I would share.

I also resized the original icon, because the image that was being used was too big and it caused some pixelation on the icon. I even flipped the icon so that the Left-Handed trait would have, well, a left hand to represent it.

There are three versions to choose from:
  • Left-Handed Only
  • Right-Handed Only
  • Both

The Right-Handed Only version is kind of useless, because most of your sims are right-handed. I made it anyway, because I figured, what the heck, maybe it'll be of some use to someone out there.

There shouldn't be any conflicts unless you have a mod that overrides these particular resources.

If you use Slice of Life, this mod conflicts with that mod. Slice of Life won't show up in the sim's menu.
I like this mod so I'll keep coming back to see if it's updated

I highly doubt that my mod would conflict with Slice of Life unless it does something with the left and right handed traits.

EDIT: So I did a bit of searching and have discovered the KawaiiStacie has made part of her mod depend on the left and right handed traits, therefore my mod does conflict. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about this.

Thanks for your mod.
Question, is it up to date?
Because it doesn't work in game, and I have no other MOD or CC.
Thank you

I would love a mod like this for the Likes/Dislikes fruitcake traits.
