Simple mod that allows pointy ears on human sims. Since this changes the modifier min/max values to be the same as aliens they are genetic and may appear on townies - see versions for more information on random chance.

Main mod requires GTW and toddler patch

Versions
  • khitsule_pointy_ears - This is the main mod that unlocks direct manipulation of ears and are genetic. The ears will not appear as presets in CAS
  • EarPresets GP04 Random - An optional addon that unlocks the Vampire presets to show in CAS, so you can also select the various options. Allowed for random and townie generation with a chance of about 50%. Requires Vampires, and I recommend this one if you have both GTW and Vampires. If you do not have GTW, you can download this and the presets will apply to human sims, however they cannot be edited, and will not be passed down to children. Not entirely tested - please tell me if you do try this without GTW
  • EarPresets GP04 NoRandom - Vampire presets above, but has been disallowed for random. Technically still possible for townies to have pointed ears, but incredibly unlikely
  • EarPresets EP01 Random - An optional addon that unlocks the GTW alien ear presets to show in CAS. Allowed for random and townie generation with a chance of about 50%. The preset thumbnails are blue-skinned aliens, but works the same. Recommend this if you only have GTW.
  • EarPresets EP01 NoRandom - GTW alien presets above, but has been disallowed for random. Technically still possible for townies to have pointed ears, but incredibly unlikely

Instructions
Download khitsule_pointy_ears.zip and extract it to your Mods folder. Optionally download one of the EarPreset based on your installed EP/GP, and unzip it to the same location.
If you chose to use the addon package, the default pointy ears will now show in CAS presets to be selected, and you can also pull/push them in detail edit mode.
If you did not download the addon, you will need to zoom into "detail edit mode" and grap the top of the ear (just like aliens and vampires). Toddler ears dont have a detail edit mode, so you'll need to edit an older sim and age them down. The ears will still show normally for toddlers born/generated in-game

Updates
Update 1: Small update fixing the strange faces on children (I had erraneously altered the scale of non-ear modifiers), and also matched the children's ear scale to be the same as vampires and aliens. That means the ears will appear slightly smaller in the child stage. Toddler stage ears seem to always be quite big, but thats the same as alien/vampires.

Update 2 20/6/2017: Unlocked CAS presets from either aliens or vampires. Has the unintended side effect of unlocking the ears with Vampires GP instead of GTW, but they are not genetic.

Update 3 29/7/2017: Found that the pointy presets were being chosen overwhelmingly often when generating townies. Adjusted preset chance to 50% to balance it out, and made another version that disallows for random.

Resources Changed
khitsule_pointy_ears Alters 7 data files corresponding to casmodifiertuning for all ages.

khitsule_EP01_EarPresets alters 12 CAS Preset files corresponding to ear presets introduced in EP01

khitsule_GP04_EarPresets alters 12 CAS Preset files corresponding to ear presets introduced in GP04
