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.

Wonderful and useful mod - many thanks!

Is there any chance that you might add a function where the mod outputs the information for all sims in a particular save-game to a text file? For obvious reasons this would probably be far too much information to wade through in-game through dialogue boxes or notifications, but being able to access all the information at once in a single data dump would be great.

The easiest way would be to output all information to a file in game because output information of 10 sims (at most) to a file has been implemented in the mod already (As you probably know, the mod can output every 10 sims' sim infos to a file if Dialog/Notification/OutputFile in the mod option is OFF/OFF/ON). I don't know how long it would take to output all sims yet but it would depend on how many sims are in the world. There seems to be a player who has 500 sims in the world.

For output of the information for all sims in a particular save-game to a text file, it would be possible but it would take a little long time for me to add that function. I don't know when I can have such time but I want to add that function some day.

I've seen games from other people with 800 or more sims...

I use the relationship.introduce_sim_to_all_others cheat to get all my sims into one Relationship Panel. From there, it takes a while, but if you WANT the list, you can go through and hit Show Sim Info on each sim individually, just make sure it's going to the text file first.

With my 158 sims, the entire report took over 9000 lines. Just a benchmark.

Thanks for the fast update! (MC is broken... )

MC 3.0.1 HOTFIX is available now. Anybody with the CL patch needs this.

If you have 1.24 game files, This is the Only Properly Working Version of MC. REDOWNLOAD all parts you use, from both sites.

http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=551680

I actually just dropped by to say thanks (again!) for THIS mod, @itasan2 , and for keeping it up. Fabulous.

It's about to help me shoot some trouble.

Thank you for MCCC 3.0.1 information.
I was remaking my mod this October and I plan to release it (ver2.0 aka ShowSimInfo2) after City Living Expansion Pack is released.

New Ver 2.0.0 (aka ShowSimInfo2) has been released.
Changes:
1.New browsing feature
All remade. It's a sim relation-based browsing (see the screenshots). You can find a friend of a niece of a friend of your sim for example.
2.Operation of the selecting sims in the dialog (aka sim picker)
You can go back and forth between a sim picker and a sim info dialog.
3.Output to a file
The file format is the same as Ver1.11 but you can output sim infos of all sims at a time.
4.Translation
All sim info can be translated, finally.

New Ver2.1.0 has been released.
Changes:
1.Location Info. (New Info)
Adds a LOT name to "Home" info.
Adds "Current Location" info. It's a LOT where the sim is now. NPC sims usually move during your traveling (the loading screen) so you may not meet them if you travel to their "Current Location".
2.All Sims in this LOT(New Menu/Feature)
Adds "All Sims in this LOT" to the Pie Menu. It shows all sim list in the current LOT(zone).
3.Fixed Bug
When an "away-sim-icon" was selected, the Sim Info Dialog didn't appear. Now it works properly.

Loving 2.0.0, but I'm here to ask a tiny little favor... is there any way you could shave off a LITTLE of the mid-screen white window? I play in windowed mode because I have to see my clock (OCD thing), and the frame bars are blocking most of the bottom Quit button. I can still USE it, but I can't SEE most of it.

I'm afraid if I get a sim with more text than usual in that window, it'll go below where I can get to it and I'll have to force quit to get out of it.

Kinda missing the option to bypass that screen, I miss being able to shunt that off to the blue Notifications window instead. Personal preference, maybe it could come back sometime?

Either way, this is my number two must-have-working mod. (MC is number one, I won't even play without that one.) Welcome to Hotel California, @itasan2 ... you can check out any time, but you can never leave!

BTW, about MC... is there some reason why SSI doesn't show Ancestral Household flags?

They're different from regular trait-flags, but I don't know how... yet.

Thank you for the comment.
For Ancestral Household flags, I don't use the flag but I guess it wouldn't be a sim's trait. Maybe, it would be something like a LOT trait?
For your request, I'll try.

When I played Sims3 with NRaas Mods, the most frequently-used feature was Sim Status (browsing sim infos) and Tagger (mapping sims' locations). I missed the location info so I added it to Ver2.1.0. As you know, NPC sims usually move and are assigned to specific roles during the loading screen in Sims4. So my sim wouldn't meet them even if my sim travel to their current location. But at least, I think the current location can stimulate players' imagination . That's the role of the current location. Thank you for the comment.

Edit: Are you not seeing a Show Sim Info button when you click on Sims? /edit

In Sims4/Mods, create a folder for it, SSI works fine.

Download the zip. Open the zip file. COPY the 3 files to that new folder. There'll be a 4th file generated by the mod, if you choose to let it write output to a text file.

Make sure your game is updated to the last version, OR that you've downloaded the proper file version for the game version you're running, if it isn't the latest.

IF you have the CL patch, 1.24, you want the latest mod at the bottom of the Files list. Currently 2.1.0.

Make sure in the GAME, you have both Mods boxes checked (green) on the Game Options tab.

That should be all you need to do, it's working fine here.

I was wondering if you could tell me if you know what "Rock Group Small 01" means on Hidden Traits (see attached screenshot). I'm seeing this now since the City Living patch and I have no idea what it's supposed to mean. The really bizarre thing is I'm also seeing it on the pie menu as an option for cooking when a Sim is inspired and it opens a blank window. I've got a photo of that if you want to see it. And I'm also seeing it in the lot description box as "Rock Group Small 01" when I save a lot to my library!

I was thinking it might be some wacky thing from a mod, but I saw this the first time on the lot description when I just had this mod and Master Control Command Center in my game. I was updating a lot to save to my library when I noticed it. Since then I've seen it on Sims and the cooking menu like I mentioned.

I was thinking at first maybe it was some weird thing attached to lot traits, but now I don't know. Since it shows up on Sims under hidden traits, I thought I would ask you - since maybe you know something about hidden traits (I really don't).

I just ran into one of those overlapped windows I mentioned, for playing in windowed mode.

Figured out how to get out of it without doing a forced restart, too... turns out if you click into any of the submenu buttons, THEIR (shorter-output) Quit button works just fine.

I don't have that here. I just ran the "show ALL" and checked the text file. 120 sims, "rock" isn't mentioned anywhere, here. SSI, MC, UI Cheats, a few other things I'm running (posted list to MC earlier today).

Did you update SSI to 2.1.0? (I know you've got MC all set up for 3.0.1).

Any LastException files?
