This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I can't take much credit for this since it's the EA teen morph used for shortness and with the adjustments reversed for tallness, converted to a slider. It was embarrassingly easy to do but I think may be useful so I've submitted it.

The slider adjusts the sim's overall height proportionately for the whole body. There's no hand or foot shaking, and no arm or leg distortions I saw besides the glitches noted below. It works for child through elder. Most animations work well with it. I disabled the slider for toddlers because it causes distortion in the usual sitting animation and they don't do a lot of standing anyway, but you can adjust the value and when the sim ages up he/she will be accordingly taller/shorter than normal. The height should be fully inheritable and will show up when the sim ages to child.



Known problems:
  • As shown in some of the pictures, as with any height slider the kissing animation looks pretty bad.
  • There's some mild distortion of the ankles and feet in short sims when sitting or lying down.
  • Tall sims will have their knees clipping through the covers when sleeping on their backs.



There may be more problem animations that I didn't see during testing.

How to use:
The slider is located in the Appearance tab in CAS, in the Head and Ears general section, Advanced view. The label is "Sim Height by cmar" - to differentiate it from other height sliders.

Installation and removal:
Install like any other mod. Remove by deleting the package.

Compatibility:
This slider should work with any game patch version and should not need updating. If you have a problem with it let me know, otherwise please don't ask every time a patch comes out. It will work with any EA or custom clothing that is correctly constructed.

Please be aware that if you use more than a very few custom sliders you'll need to use a core mod or NRaas Master Controller to increase the number of sliders CAS can use. Some core mods that do this are AwesomeMod, XCAS, and S-Club Privée Slider Hack.

This looks like a great mod. Did the creator ever implement the inheritance changes being discussed back in 2013?

I use other sliders in Medieval and I hope these ones will work too (they're in different sections). Thanks for your work!

Hey! I'm sorry to bug you and thank you so much for making this mod! I swear I tried looking everywhere as well as, reinstalling the mod and changing up mods (getting rid of all other mods except, NRaas and separately tried XCAS).

It used to work for me! Back in 2014 it worked for me then I uninstalled The Sims 3 until recently.

Do you have any suggestions? I have an laptop is more than compatible for The Sims 3 so I know it's not a laptop issue. I play my game through Origin downloads.

I'm sorry for being a pest!

What exactly is the problem? Is the slider not showing up in CAS or is it not working? If it's not in CAS, are you sure you have the game set up correctly for mods (other mods work) and that you're looking in the right place?

Please do not PM me with mod, tutorial, or general modding questions or problems; post them in the thread for the mod or tutorial or post them in the appropriate forum.

Thank you Cmar for this mod!
Ive have been experimenting with mods i never tried and this is wonderful.
I do have a question for anyone who can point me to a link.
On my slider bar for the mod, there are positive and negative numbers displayed whenever you use it.
Has anyone written a conversion table to help with how tall or short you would want your sim would be or is it just a trial and error till you feel you've estimated correctly?
Thanks all.

I think this is an amazing mod! I just have one question about the toddler heights. It doesn't seem to be working on toddlers and I'm not sure if I have something it's conflicting with. Do you know of any mods it conflicts with?

It's deliberately disabled for toddlers because it causes distortion. You can adjust it anyway and the sim will show it when they age up.

I could understand that but now it seems like it isn't working for even the adults? They look taller in cas but when I go in game they're the same height?
