Yes there's a way to make sims even shorter but I don't know if sims will look nice.

It looks great. I verified that it works with CmarNYC's sliders. However the slider for the feets is not there then. Also verified that height settings survive ageing and that it is genetic.

Max, my talest sim, had fivefolds? with a normal hight sim. Three of them was tall when I aged them to teen.
Max brother, Mini, is the shortest sim. Three short sims was the result.

Not tested to type in height in cheat console.

One glitch discovered. One tall sim had an invisible head except for the teeth. Not permanently though.

Tested with:
Height Slider Head Fix.zip by WaterPearl #738
Slider Scripts.zip by Ash77 #392
CmarNYC's feet height slider by CMARnyc, modified by Manderz0630 #726

Fivefolds? Do you mean had five kids at once? They're called Quintuplets.

Yes, blame Google translate.
One in a Quintuplets is translated to quint but in plural it is translated to fivefolds.

The height of teens is still equal to adults.
My Mini with teen son below. To make teens chorter must be in the Growth module I think.
In GODJUL1 version teens are shorter.

Hi! Sorry if this is a stupid question, but which files do I need to download to get the latest version of just the CAS height slider/growth module? I've been reading a few pages back and I'm not sure which to download. I don't need any hand/arm/leg sliders, just the overall height and dynamic growth if that's possible. Someone else has asked this, but that was almost a year ago and I'm not sure if the combination suggested to them will still work now. Thanks!

List of files used in my testing now:

Slider Scripts.zip by Ash77 #392

You can get Growth from the download in post# 701. Other says it is not working. Not tested by me.

This an actual family I had in my game using that mod and without editing the heights manually. The teen is shorter, and one of the children is taller than his little brother.


Tall teens is really the one thing I really dislike about the game and I agree, having to manually make them shorter is a hassle... maybe if all of us who hate tall teens join forces we might convince a clever modder to fix this!


I really liked this mod. He made the game more alive. Does anyone know if it's still supported by the creator or completely abandoned?

Abandoned and not supported but he shared the code.
What is missing in this project is a Python programmer that can modify the script file.

In post #194 you have the source code as left by Simmythesim:
http://modthesims.info/showthread.p...634#post5050634

Modyfied by several other creators though.

Hello! Is there anyway to get this to work now? Like what should I download? I've tried to get this to work in my game but nothing seems to be working. Help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm still a little confused. Which slider is the one that will allow me to change the heights of children. Or is it something that I need to type into the command box?

Right now, I am using these:

1. cmar_HeightSlider in CAS Feet
2. Height Slider Shorter head fix
3. Height Slider Tall head fix
4. Slider Scripts

These four mods have enabled me to adjust the heights of Teens-Elders by dragging their feet and they all work very well together in game and I have had no issues.

But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change the height of kids which was my main reason for downloading these mods. I'm not sure if its because I don't have the right mod installed, if I'm supposed to keep it in a sub-folder or not, or what command I am supposed to type in and when I'm supposed to type it in.

An instructional video showing what to do and how would be very helpful because I have read over this entire thread quite a few times and I'm still very confused. Thank you!

The command version is what is needed for changing the kids. The command is quite easy. You type it in the cheat window. It is: add_slider Height Then type a number between 25 to 150 either minus - or without the - symbol to add height.

Well, you can use the cheat code for all ages but if you like T,YA, A and E to keep their height after aging you need to set that in CAS.
If you set height for those ages with cheat console they will return to EA heights after each aging step.


Example:
A teen set to short in CAS will be a short YA, A and E.
A teen set to short with cheat code will be EA height YA, A and E.

A child set to short in CAS is not possible at all.
A child set to short with cheat code will be EA height in T,YA, A and E.

Genetics:
If you breed childs they will inherit height from the parents or sometimes the grand parents.
(I have not tested if parents set with cheat code will pass on their height because I only use CAS settings. )

I tried your mod and It does not work, and I believe it is because It is outdated

Hi, I am confused as to what to download, I read different posts and tried different files, but none of them work. Whenever I type in the command for children it does not do anything. the only thing that works is the sliders for teen-elder. Can someone help me?

Check this post, I'm currently using the ones descibed and it works for kids. Make sure you are typing in the right command.

add_slider height [value]
[value] ranges from (I think) -100 to 100, 0 being your Sim's normal height.

By the way, there was this mod called "preteenhood" that briefly popped up a few days ago and disappeared, I wonder if it was related to Simmythesim's mod (either an update or a ripoff, I don't know since I didn't get a chance to gather more info about it) or something new?

It apparently included shorter teens and gradual growth. Does anyone know if there's something out there that still does this? This function in Simmythesims's mod was broken with Cats & Dogs.

Or is anyone interested in having a look at the original mod to see if shorter teens/growth can be updated? I would do it myself but I have no idea about modding and Python (and I'm on a Mac so I'm not even sure I'd have the tools for it)...

That's the one. Considering it was using artwork by a different Simmer and the fact that it has now vanished, it would seem safe to assume it was this mod that had been taken and shared as their own work. Such a pity that it wasn't somebody who had actually done anything to update it and have a fully functioning mod.
