Overview
This is an update for Add More Traits to Your Sims! by Rainbow_Brite Posted 6th Jul 2010 at 5:05PM - Updated 14th Jul 2011 at 7:56PM. It has some extra code information for later EP's which were released after RainbowBrite left the game.

Things you should know
  • Upon adding this mod, any Townies or NPC's will be automatically assigned the maximum number of traits allowable for their age
  • any New Sim that are generated by the game will be automatically assigned the maximum number of traits allowable for their
  • Editing your Sim in CAS or Modifying their Traits via the Cheat Console, can only be assigned 5 tratis (EA Default)
  • Any active Sims will retain their original traits and will not increase unless you use MasterController or AwesomeMod to add them. (NOTE: I dont have instructions for using AwesomeMod)
    • If you're using MasterController, You will need the MasterController Base Module and the Cheats Module
    • Simply click on your Sim, then NRaas > MasterController > Advanced > Traits > Change
  • Sims are bound by the max traits when traveling, 5 by default or the version max of this mod (8, 12, 16, or 20)
  • If your sim gets an additional trait via social networking, you should decline it. If you're using this mod you already have the traits you want, by game default it will assume your sim has 5 traits and you're adding a 6th one. So if you accept the social trait you will lose any above 6 and will need to re add them.
  • If you're using a mod to unhide traits, all traits will count toward the max total.
  • Sometimes active sims have issues aging up and need to be reset. You may need to remove additional traits, age them up, then add the traits back in.
  • This mod does not affect pets, I've looked for the equivalent tuning for pets, but have yet to find it.
  • Simply removing this mod will not return the trait limit to default, they will still retain the number of traits you gave them unless you remove them. See Below

TO REMOVE ADDITIONAL TRAITS
To remove additional traits with MasterController (you will need the Base Module and Cheats Module)
  1. For the Active Family, click on a Sim > NRaas > MasterController > Advanced > Traits > Drop Traits, then you must enter the number of traits you wish to remove (repeat for each sim)
  2. For Town (non active) Sims, click on the City Hall or any Computer > NRaas > Sim > Advanced > Traits > Drop Traits
    1. then you will need to supply the target Sims - use "Age"
    2. select Young Adult, Adult, & Elder
    3. on the next screen, click on "All" at the top
    4. Now you must choose how many traits to remove (if you are using the 20 max version and wish to return to default 5, then you would enter 15)
    5. Repeat steps a,b,c & d for Teens, Child, and Baby/Toddler Ages

Versinos
There are 4 versions, each one with a little higher max. You can only use 1 version at a time.
AGEDefaultVer 1Ver 2Ver 3Ver 4

Version 1.67
This causes the townies in my saves to have 20 traits. Is there a fix or a way to prevent this from happening? Thanks.

does this mod still work with patch 1.69? i don't like the limits either, but i found it doesn't wanna work for me for some reason. :/ ive removed and reinstalled the mod in the packages folder. idk whats wrong. do i have to have another mod to activate it in the game or something else?
edit: to clarify, yes i do have rainbow brites mod, and i got V4 of rainbow brites mod, and choose mikeys V4 for 20 traits max. do i have to have some .net framework or something?

I downloaded this mod and because I play with nraas mods, the whole town became super sims that have ALL traits. Every single sim started to have every single compatible trait added to them. The game became not so fun anymore. It might not be the intent of this mod but it's what happened to me. I didn't read other people's posts or comments but hope there will be a variant for Active household only. Meaning we as players want more trait slots for our sims but not forced on townies. You know when you finish a rabbit hole career (max rank) you should be prompted to select a new trait just like the academic bonus trait slots we receive. I think that would be more realistic.

Hey there! i am not the creator of this mod but i have used this mod for many years... and i too have come back and read this thread many times... It is compatible with 1.69 and this may give you some answers as well...

Hey, I have a question or two about the mod. I've seen people comment that no matter the version they have in their game, all the NPCs end up having 20 traits each. Is that so even if you have the max. 5 traits version installed? I might have misunderstood, though.

@dinadine May I ask which version of the mod do you have in your game? If I got this right, the superhuman Sims with 20 traits shouldn't happen if I install the max. 5 traits version of this mod?

Default Mod keeps resetting max traits
Every time I edit For Town (non active) Sims, click on the City Hall > NRaas > Sim > Advanced > Traits > Drop Traits, to take away traits it looks as If It works just fine. Then about a few minutes later It re-adds the mods max default. Re-edit after re-edit It just rewrites traits back to the mods default value after some time passes. I dont want other sims to have 8 traits, but Id still like to use the other features of this mod, with traits at any age.

tl;dr Mod keeps re-adding mods max traits after removing extra traits.
Help?
