Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated for 1.63

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: You can NOT make your sim a vampire/mummy/simbot just by adding these traits, or at least not properly.

This is a simple mod to unlock the hidden special traits that you can only get if you're related to service NPCs or foreigners otherwise. Now you can choose them in CAS or using the cheat.

Unlocked traits:


Pyromaniac - Ignite random things around you
Immune to Fire - Sim becomes fireproof
Makes No Messes - Sim will not make any mess
EP01/Mummy - ?? not sure (probably nothing)
Unicorn (Horse only)
Junior Mascot Hidden Trait (UNTESTED)

Burglar - Sneak anywhere
Can apprehend Burglar - Should be able to apprehend burglars
Can Salute - "Salute" appears under Friendly pie menu
Pizza Appreciator - More positive mood points for eating pizza
Rocker - Natural feeling of rock-stardom
EP01/Asian Culture - Chinese-themed idle animations, chopsticks, etc
EP01/Egyptian Culture - Sing Middle Eastern songs autonomously, etc
EP01/French Culture - Sing French songs autonomously, etc

Note that some of the traits don't have any descriptions or even icons. There's nothing I can do to fix it, they simply don't have any.

I love this mod, but for anyone with Pets installed it removes the Pet traits for pets, giving them human Sim traits instead, as well as Pet-related traits Sims are able to have. It also removes the "Reinforcement..." option for pets, as well as the "Get To Know" option for sims. I also have Generations, it removes the Rebellious trait for Sims. I had to get rid of this mod just so I could get everything back to normal. If someone updated this, it'd be great.

This mod has not been safe to use since back around patch 1.22 this is when it first started messing up and removing/replacing traits.

Anyone using this should keep a clean backup of their save game before trying to use this mod as it will remove your sims traits and pets and townies in your town can all be affected by this mod when it removes traits.

I will test this and see if it's having any problems like it used to back when I first reported it was messing up, the author of the mod never responded to what was happening.

Reading the "things you should know" at this mod will give you an ideal of what happens.

Sorry I no longer play the game, but if you use the mod with newer game version you WILL have problems. 1.67 is the latest I've tested, if you have any later patch use at your own risk.

This mod caused me to loose ability to interact with other sims and made the game load impossibly slow.

#608 Old 16th Nov 2014 at 1:45 AM Last edited by Okalanit : 16th Nov 2014 at 3:08 AM. Reason: Updating
I installed "more traits" and some of Nraa's mods. For some reason, I can no longer click my sims. However, that is not why I am here. I went to choose some new traits for my sims and only "Stupid" was available to add. Thought maybe I could let you know that THIS mod may be conflicting with "more traits" or "Nraa's" mods.


I yanked "more traits" and tested the game without it. Turns out, it was causing BOTH issues of the inability to normal click on the sims and shift + click > modify traits, then there would only be "stupid" available on the list of choices. (all the others are invisible.) Either way, thought I would notify anyone who has Treeage's Unhidden traits. (And for those who usually skip over what the creators typed and go strait to the comments.)

Hey there. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but the mod appears to only work in English (my friend, who has the game in English, recommended it to me and apparently it had worked perfectly for her)
My game is in Danish, and while some traits work, the others are untranslated and corrupted. They appear completely blank. It had ruined the game pretty much, as traits no longer worked or meant anything. I would have liked to use it, but I guess not. It did seem really nice. But I do post this so anyone with a non-English game knows they should probably pass on it or backup.

Are you sure you cannot change the texture for the traits?
