This mod is still compatible with patch 1.77

I usually put mod updates on my Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/chingyu1023

Download "AddTraitsMenu" +"DisallowHumanTraitsForPets" (if using options of PLUS 4/5 Pet Traits)+ download and choose ONE "MoreTraitsMod_Options" you want to put in your Mods folder.

❌❌DON'T PUT MORE THAN ONE "MoreTraitsMod_Option" in Your Mods folder
Long-Lived Traits are optional

Any CC Traits Modder who wants to disallow traits appearing on pets you might have to click "Species Restrictions" in Mod Constructor OR add


in your Trait Tuning like what I did in this file.

Extract the zip and PUT ONLY ONE Option of More Traits Mod in your Mod Folder.

How to add the traits :


----
There are 30 options you can choose from. Only put ONE option of More Traits Mod you want in your mod file.


For each option, You can choose either 3 (no change), 4 or 5 pet traits. Remember to put only ONE file of More Traits Mod!

That's interesting... I checked them in game yesterday with a bunch of sims and I haven't noticed this. Did you check if the sim already meet the maximum traits amount

They are all for game version after Toddlers Patch and have been working until any future patch that edit life stages which may break them.
Life Long Learner is just a name suggested by a player that asked me to make versions that sims add more and more traits till they die

I don't own fitness stuff and all I know is this mod works for the latest patch without fitness stuff. I don't think fitness stuff would break the mod because it doesn't do anything about life stages.

In the description:
Quote:
Only put ONE package you want in your mod file.

Example:
Version #5: Description: Toddler 2, Child 3, Teen 4, YA/A/Elder 5

Use also Embyr's menu option for this mod.
Quote:
You can use Embyr311's Add Traits In Regular Menu Mod which makes the Add/Remove Traits option available without using cheats.

If you look at the main page and the download descriptions, you'll see that you can download whichever ones you want, but only one.
The Lifelong Learner downloads make sims learn traits until they die. I guess that if you want character development, you'd want one of those. If not, don't get one that says Lifelong Learner.

The numbers show how many traits are made available for each sim. This is made more clear if you look at the original mod's description:
Quote:
What makes it different is that it expands the number of main traits(Good, evil, bookworm, neat) available to be added to a sim.

Quote:
What the mod does: It edits the specified amount of slots for each age group

Quote:
Depending on your personal preferences you may want less or more

(Source )

So, "Description: Toddler 3, Child 5, Teen 7, YA/A/Elder 8" means your toddlers can have 3 traits, children can have 5, teens can have 7, and the various adult stages can have 8.
Personally, I'm using Version 8, but 9 is nice, too. Version 8, I think, is a nice middle ground in comparison to the others, and is good if you don't have a top of the line computer.

Also make sure you go to the original mod's download section and get "Add Traits In Regular Menu Mod.zip", or else you'll have to manually type in the "add trait" cheat, which can get really tiring really fast.

Thanks for this mod! It's great for squeezing in a custom trait without losing the EA traits already assigned or even just rounding out your sims a bit more...

That said, I'm not crazy about loading my sims down with traits(at least for now), but I do want to try more toddler traits to make toddlers more interesting; Any chance you could make some versions like Version 2 only with 2 or more toddler traits?
I'm also intrigued by the possibility of adding on traits with aging, but as said don't want to load my sims down with traits. Some versions that add a new trait at adult and elder stage without having more than 1 extra trait at the earlier life stages would be great as well. I didn't see one like this there at this time, but if I missed it let me know.

Also, would I be correct in assuming this in no way affects the UI for trait picking on Age Up?

I've gotten a glitch where Sims will get moodlets for certain traits, but they don't have that trait. f.e. a lot of my Sims get "Feeling Trapped" when they don't have the Noncommittal trait. I don't know if it's caused by this mod, is anyone else getting this?

I somtimes get this too. Is this happening with sims created from scratch or is this happening with sims that you are reusing with changes to their traits at the very least?
Usually, when this happens to me I'm using a previously saved sim, but have changed their traits(either before starting my game in CAS or after starting my game with Full Edit Mode in CAS). Certain traits seem to have lingering affects even though I have replaced them with other traits. This happened before I got this mod so it is not connected, in my case at least. In fact I believe I may have seen this in vanilla gameplay too. It's very frustrating, but I usually use debug cheats to remove the undesirable moodlets.

Not the mod creator, but that's because they're the same mod. This one is the updated version since Embry311's stopped working with the toddler patch.

EDIT: That being said, will have to see if this mod still works with the Nov. 7th patch. Hopefully so!

It does. I use it in my game in two different computers without problem and I know at least 4 other people who also do. Did you unzip the mod? You need only the package file in your folder - not the .zip
And they're not the same mod, as the other person said. This .zip provides a nice menu for adding and removing traits, so you don't have to use the commands/cheats.

Even with the mod, you can't add more than 3 traits in CAS. You have to add the traits either using the traits.add_trait cheat code or the Add Traits In Regular Menu Mod.

I am really begging for this mod to be updated. I don't want to continue with my most loved game without it. My most precious sims will lose so much personality. So their lives depend on you =P
