This mod requires Andrew and Orange Mittens's Playable Pets Mod, found here. (You wouldn't see any difference without it as it is needed to view your pets Simology panel. )


As the curious simmer that I am, when I first played with Andrew and Orange Mittens Playable Pets mod, I wanted to know what all those blank "Reward Traits" really were.

So I went about doing some quick research and messed around with some XML files, after which I finally figured out how to give those blank traits some names. I also went in and gave them icons, which I thought were appropriate.

After doing this, I decided that all this new information might be too much for some simmers, and I also created a version which will remove the blank traits completely, so that only the CAS traits will be shown for your pets.

Pet Quirks with Names

As seen above, this version names each Pet Quirk so that you can be better informed on what exactly your pet loves or fears.

Pet Quirks Hidden

This version completely removes the blank traits so that you can have a cleaner simpler Simology panel.

Make sure to only choose one version as there's no point in having both.


There are currently no known conflicts, but any mod that uses any of the following resources will conflict.

Andrew and Orange Mittens for their Playable Pets Mod

When exactly are you getting a Last Exception? And have you tried loading the game with only my mod to see if it still happens?

Both versions of my mod work perfectly fine in my game, so I don't really know how to fix the problem you're having.

This mod overrides default pet traits, so yes it will show as having CC when sharing to the gallery, even though the changes it makes are simply aesthetic.

Seems like latest patch broke this mod a little bit. It still works, but there are no texts at all. I know the update brokes text strings. Also my game is in Spanish, and as far as I know this issue happens in not-English games.

EDIT: I've just downloaded the last update and it seems to be fine. So no problems at all, this mod is perfectly functional!

Thanks! It's cool being able to see what their quirks are. I'm so glad that the playable pets mod works too, thanks again!
