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

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.

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.

I am looking for a mod that would allow me to see the progress of my sim's hidden skills.
Is this mod capable of that or is such functionality going to eventually be implemented?

yes, it is capable of that.
on the main page of Show Sim Info on a sim you have the Skills tab where you can see all of the skills that the sim have and their progress in those skills.

It appears to work with the recent update but I think it interfere with the new Sim Profile interface. Sometimes I could click a Sims profile and their info would come up. If I try to see a different Sim profile, their profile won't show. I think this mod collides with the new Sim Profile.

If there is no Sims.
There is no life!

I think it broke with the snowy escape patch
#663 Old 30th Dec 2020 at 7:10 AM
The only comment about whether this mod works after Snowy Escape that contains any specific details says that the mod prevents some, but not all, Sim Profiles from displaying. However, that happens to be exactly what happens with a known post-patch CC issue that has nothing to do with this mod -- some custom CAS traits broke in the patch, and if you have broken CAS traits in your game, the profiles of the Sims who have the broken traits won't display.

I tested the mod and, while my testing certainly wasn't exhaustive, I couldn't reproduce this problem in my testing game with any Sim whose profile I checked, including Sims with (non-broken, of course) custom CAS traits. As far as I can tell, this mod is working quite well. (In fact, I'd never seen it before someone asked on another forum about a working version, and I'm planning to keep using it now.) Wouldn't hurt to have a more authoritative answer, though.

Thanks for the mod. Love it, use this all the time
Question: are the listings at the very top of the Traits list noted as character values i.e. manners, responsibility, etc. attributes that can be manipulated by the sim's actions in any way or just some random, arbitrary value?
Is their any way that these ratings could be change through game-play of some other way?
Do they really mean anything worth noting?
