03-31-2013 This Mod has been tested with the patch version 1.50 of The Sims 3 University.

Hello there Mod the Sims 3 Community! Thril2 here with another simple XML tuning mod for The Sims 3 that will allow your Sim to learn more traits about another Sim through interacting with them. This mod will only work after you have purchased for your Sim the Lifetime Reward Trait: Observant.

This mod was constructed solely for the purpose of supporting any Sims 3 player in their gameplay. Many of you MTS Community Members may be familiar with a mod developed by Rainbow_Brite that is titled, Add More Traits to Your Sims! (GEN Compatible). For those of you who use the mod developed by Rainbow_Brite, now your chances of discovering all of another Sims traits through social interactions has increased.

I have taken the liberty to setup some presets for you to download. All that you are required to do is select 1 file to download and install from the list and wa-lah, you are on your way to an even more unique gameplay experience with The Sims 3. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated and welcomed. Thank you for your time and consideration in choosing to take a look at or try out this mod.

Happy Gaming!!

Mod Versions
Below you will find a list of 4 different variations for this game mod. Each individual file will have a different effect on how many traits your Sim will learn about another Sim at one time. The downloaded file will override the default values stored in the GameplayData.package, which is located in the Main Game Folder install directory under (The Sims 3\Game\Bin\Gameplay).

(IMPORTANT: Only Choose 1 Version of the Game Mod to Download and Install)
