Thanks to Ambular for pointing out a problem with the adult male element of the slider. I've uploaded a fixed version; please delete the old one and use the updated file instead. Your already-created sims who use this slider won't be affected by the update, the slider will continue to work on them as if nothing had changed (well, except that the am bit is fixed...).

So, there I am, quietly making a sim - very pretty sim, stunning in fact. And I swivel the camera, and think "Urgh, something I did to her nose has given her a philtrum like a slide rule" (Well ok, I didn't actually think "philtrum", I googled it afterwards); so I go to find the slider with which to correct this nasal monstrosity, and wtf EA, there isn't one?!

Well, there is now.

40 fracking meshes. You know it takes 40 fracking meshes to make one of these things?

Anyway, the slider works for all ages, male and female, and is found in the Mouth -> Upper Lip CAS panel. Due to the level of detail you're working with when using this, the results will be different for different sims, as the overlip is blended with all the other aspects of the face sculpt. All my models have the slider at either 0% (very sticky-out), or 100% (very sticky-in); and as you can see, the end results vary. The bloke with the face fuzz gets ye olde slide rule - the girl with the black hair ends up looking like Homer Simpson.

The toddler version - see attached pic - is a little bit jaggedy. I apologise for this; there just aren't as many vertices to work with in that part of the toddler face mesh.

Wahay, now I actually deserve that Plastic Surgeon sticker on my profile again!

Does this work with the new EP? Yes.
Does this work with the new patch? Yes.
But you wrote that before the patch even came out! Yes.
