Information:
The version 3.8.1 is now available (December 8, 2019).
The mod is compatible with the patch of June 10 (PC Version 1.63.136.1010).

Changes in Version 3.8.1:
1. Sim Picker Dialog (BugFix)
The sim picker dialog didn't work because of the latest patch but now it works properly.

Description:
Show/Search Sim Info Mod has the following 3 functions. You can also customize the Main Dialog or something by the Mod Options.

1. Show This Sim Info
You click a sim, then select "Show Sim Info..." and "This Sim" in the Pie Menu. The mod shows the selected sim's info. You can see a sim info of any sim, including NPC sims / unplayed sims. You can also click a sim in the Relationship Panel to show the sim info.
If the selected sim isn't the active sim, the mod also shows their relationship info unless the active sim is an away-icon. It's a relation-based browsing (see the screenshots). So you can find family member(parents/siblings/children...) of your sim / NPC sim easily for example.

2. Select Sims From All Sims List in the Game / on the Current LOT
You click a sim, then select "Show Sim Info..." and "Select Sims From All Sims List in the Game / on the Current LOT" in the Pie Menu. The mod shows all sims list in the game or on the current LOT so you select a sim and OK button. The mod shows the sim info.

3. Search Sims
You click a sim, then select "Show Sim Info..." and "Search Sims" in the Pie Menu. The mod prompts you to enter a name or a search keyword (eg. trait, career) so you enter the word. The mod shows the matched sims so you select a sim and OK button. The mod shows the sim info. Please use an SSI Console Command "ssi -rule" or "ssi -keyword" to know the details or the keywords.

3.1 Format of Input Words
The format of input words is "Keyword:Condition1#Condition2". Condition2 is a numerical condition.
For example, "Skill:Logic#)5" means searching for sims whose logic skill level is greater than 5.
You can't enter a more/less than sign ">" or "<" in the input box because of a technical reason so you have to use a parenthesis ")" or "(" instead.
The length of the input box is short so I recommend you should search by SSI Console Command in the cheat window if you enter a long or many words.

The following are some examples of all numerical conditions.
Keyword:Condition1#)100 ... Greater than 100
Keyword:Condition1#)=100 ... Greater than or equal 100
Keyword:Condition1#(100 ... Less than 100
Keyword:Condition1#(=100 ... Less than or equal 100
Keyword:Condition1#100to200 ... Between 100 and 200
Keyword:Condition1#100 ... Equal 100

An exclamation mark "!" means Not (negation).
Keyword:Condition1#!)100 ... Not greater than 100
Keyword:Condition1#!)=100 ... Not greater than or equal 100
Keyword:Condition1#!(100 ... Not less than 100
Keyword:Condition1#!(=100 ... Not less than or equal 100
Keyword:Condition1#!100to200 ... Not between 100 and 200
Keyword:Condition1#!100 ... Not equal 100

The difference of the positions of "!" (between "Keyword:Condition1#!Condition2" and "Keyword:!Condition1#Condition2")
"Skill:Logic#!)8" means the logic skill level is NOT greater than 8. The sims have the logic skills but their level is not greater than 8.
"Skill:!Logic#)8" means NOT/NO logic skill level is greater than 8. The sims don't have the logic skills or they have the logic skills but their level is not greater than 8.

Example of Multiple Condition Search
"Career:Doctor#10 Salary:Weekly#)100000 Gender:Male Spouse:No Body:Fat#!)0 Occult:!Vampire Age:Young Trait:Genius Trait:!Geek Skill:Comedy#)=7"
It means searching for sims who are doctors (level 10) and earns more than 100,000 simolens a week. They are male and not married. They aren't fat or vampire. They are young. They have genius traits but no geek ones. Their comedy skill levels are greater than or equal 7.

3.2 Search Keyword List
All keywords are NOT case-sensitive. You can search sims by the following 22 keywords.
1. Name (first name or last name)
"name" ... name is a first name or a last name. You don't have to enter all letters so if you search for Bella Goth you can enter just "b", "be", "g", "go" or whatever you want. Your local language is available for name. "!name" means searching sims whose names are not "name".
You can search the special sims below.
"Jasmine" ... searching for Jasmine Holiday.
"Mimsy", "Bernard" .. searching for the ghosts in Von Haunt Estate
"Grim" ... searching for Grim Reaper
"Alien" ... searching for Alien Pollinator

4. SSI Console Commands
You can also use those functions by SSI Console Commands. The SSI Console Commands is used in the Sims 4 Cheat Console (press Control + Shift + C). Please enter "ssi -help" to see all SSI Console Commands.

Gender preference can be included but there is less space in the sim info dialog
Maybe it would be included in the near future. I'll consider it one of requests for the future version on the mod.

P.S.
Now the mod (Ver1.2) shows gender preferenece.

Excellent! This will be a great help reminding me which of the many buyable traits and skills I dole out to my hundreds of sims and the army of NPCs who work around town. I'm fanatical about giving them appropriate skills and traits to make them the best at what they do, with mods to give them plenty more traits beyond default, but so often forget who has what with so many sims. Now I can tell at a glance without having to befriend every last NPC to see if I've given them the best traits.

Thank you.

Just popped back to report a snag. If used to report on sims who are from a large family and have most traits and all skills, - (Those super, special main sims a few of us have.) - the report window is very large and the button to close it is not on screen. Ergo you cannot get back into play mode and will have to shut down game via Task Manager.

Glad I tested this early so I didn't lose any important gameplay. A keyboard key to shut report window would be a fantastic help in such scenarios, rare though they may be.

Sorry about that. I'm thinking and fixing now. Please wait for the fixed version. What is your game screen resolution anyway?

I'm on 1920x1080. If it's problematic to mess around with please don't stress to do it. Like I say, it's a very rare issue, only with sims who have damn near all traits via cheats, all the skills and live in large families. With such sims, a player would already know that they are special maxed out sims, no need to summon a report to see what they have - they have everything! For the majority of average sims, the problem won't occur at all and that's where your excellent mod helps the most.

Thank you for your information. Your sim sounds like a super sim!
Anyway, I updated the mod. The updated mod (Ver1.1) splits into 4 page dialogs, if a sim info dialog becomes so big that users can't click OK button because of a large amount of sim info, like you. I know this is very rare as you said. But sooner or later I have to think about it when I add more info to the dialog in the future. Have fun!

That's what I thought! I have more than 170 sims. I've put most of them into the game by myself, except some EA default NPCs. So I've wanted to know what's going on with them. That was my motive for creating this mod.

Thank you so much for this, I'm another sim micromanager, and this mod is SWEET! Love the fixed multi-window vibe you just added, too. Thanks for the speedy response on that, I *would* have run into the problem coolspear1 mentioned. I make super-sims too.

Running this mod along with MC Command Center (windows 10, 32 bit sims4) and I've had NO issues so far. Deaderpool looked at this, says it should not conflict with MC at all. NICE job! I'm gonna LOVE it. Thanks for sharing!

Wow!! You also have super sims?! Phew, it was a good idea that I added the multi-window function yesterday.
Yeah, I also use MC Command Center. At first, I thought MC Command Center would include this function but Deaderpool seemed to focus on more important and interesting features. So I decided to make this mod. Anyway, thanks for your information.

I'm having this problem too! It seems to work on the sims for the household I'm currently playing, but not for other sims.
