This mod attempts to give the impression of your Sim kids growing up.
This mod updates Children and Teens every night to simulate the physical process of growing up.
They grow in body height and shape and their voices are adjusted accordingly.
When the Sims turn into young adults, all the modifications are reverted as if nothing has ever happened.
Of course you can activate and deactivate the mod for each Sim. Or have the mod auto update everyone.
You also have to activate it manually for each world/savegame you are playing. So having one game with growing Sims and another with standard Sims is absolutely no problem.
How fast they grow depends on the lifespan you have set for Child and Teen in your game.
Uninstalling the Mod
You really should use the !CLEAN UP and save your game before uninstalling the mod. Technically you have to do this for every Savegame!
Exporting Sims and Households
The mod must be disabled for all Sims you plan to export in any way! This applies to copying sims to the library, too.
Installing EA Patches
Yes. You should !CLEAN UP and save your game before you install an EA patch. And yes. technically for every savegame you ever plan to reload.
Shows you mod-related information about the Sim.
Sorry, some of the data is a bit cryptic. Important for you:
-Is the mod activated for the sim?
-How many Sims are activated in total?
Enable Mod for $Name
The Mod takes the Sim under it's spell.
Transforms the Sim to his/her new form.
Disable Mod for $Name
Transforms the Sim back to the original values.
Enable Mod for all Sims in Town
Transforms all Children and Teens in your World and takes them under it's spell.
Click this option any time again and it will do a check and only add new found Sims.
!CLEAN UP (Disable Mod for all Sims in Town)
Restores and applies original values on all Sims the Mod has data for.
Errors after playing the game for a while are not unusual. I'm getting them too.
Errors and left over sims mean that the mod holds data for Sims that are no longer in the game. This could have many reasons.
The mod is quite stubborn. It will keep the data of those Sims until they return (most never do) and lists them as errors every time you use this function. See this as a precaution.
Birthday SpinNighly updates
For your household Sims, the mod tries to make the birthday spin look as smooth as possible. It does not alter the original birthday code of the game though.
Instead, it updates your Sim just before the birthday spin and again a while after. This proceducre can glitch and your Sims will have a wrong physique before or after their birthday spin. This is just a visual thing and will usually be fixed after a while or during the nightly updates.
Voice randomization and mutation
The nightly updater fires at 1 A.M. and updates All Sims you switched it on for
If a kid has a standard 0 voice, the mod attempts to inherit voice from same gender parent including a 10% mutation.
If that doesn't work or the parents also have 0 voices, the voice gets randomized.
This only applies to sims affected by the mod.
I should have made this switch on and offable, but if you care about voices you probably have adjusted them already.
The mod sniffs for birthdays and applies changes to those Sims - If you have activated them.
The mod also automatically activates after Toddler to Child birthdays if you are using the "Enable Mod for all Sims" option.
