FYI If you go into SimPE and into sim surgury instead, I beleave it gives you the character # for each of your sims, so you only have to load SimPE once, write down all the character # and name of the sims you want to change.
That would be even easyer.
I know this thread was started a while ago and may be a waist of my time posting this, or maby someone has already said something, but once I have read everything I will have forgotton to post.
Hope this helps.

PS Love the idea, I have my work cut out for me now hehe.

Updated the height list for inches only but with with in standard height conventions; ie. 63 inches is knows as 5 foot 3 inches and is not normally refered to as 5 1/4 feet. Also removed metric. I guess someone brought up that children had default size of 4' so I showed that as part of the defaults.

hope this helps....

What the fuck is going on...I'm about to freaking scream. Out of no where while I continued to find my sim, when I tried to click on the age data thing, it wouldnt work. I kept trying to click. And then I got frustrated and exited out of the resource tree. And I cant get it back. Its like no matter how many times I re Installed it, it the program acts as if I saved it. Im going crazy...please help!!

I wanted to change some sims into dwarves, but the game won't accept the change; 0.x is turned into x ..

I suppose it's in the BV or FT expansion pack this is changed, as it was possible before, but I don't know. My dwarves looked very strange, thin and long-stretched (I laughed hard when first discovered them after changing the height)

Figured it out!
At first I wrote 0.8, which the system changed to 8.
The I tried writing 0,8 instead, which worked fine!
Not sure it works for all, just the European versions or what, but it worked for me

My Sims no longer even have "Age Data" as an option under the Resource Tree. Does that mean it isn't possible to do this anymore?

Default everything works fine for me ...
i just found out how to do this ... i went and downloaded SimPE and have gone in and out of the program and game without a problem.

i did have a problem though ... the first time i entered the new heights and went to the game everything was all messed up ... then i realized that i had adjusted the toddlers and children's heights with the adult numbers ... haha

so that led me to make the toddler conversions ... i used the average height as 2'6". i also went as low as 1 foot ... but i haven't tested that, lowest i've tested is 2'0" (its really cute!!!! more like a real 1 year old). i also went up to 3'0" and that worked fine as well ... how nice it is to have two toddlers at different sizes!!

1'0" = 0.4
1'1" = 0.43
1'2" = 0.47
1'3" = 0.5
1'4" = 0.53
1'5" = 0.57
1'6" = 0.6
1'7" = 0.63
1'8" = 0.67
1'9" = 0.7
1'10" = 0.73
1'11" = 0.77
2'0" = 0.8
2'1" = 0.83
2'2" = 0.87
2'3" = 0.9
2'4" = 0.93
2'5" = 0.97
2'6" = 1
2'7" = 1.03
2'8" = 1.07
2'9" = 1.1
2'10" = 1.13
2'11" = 1.17
3'0" = 1.2
3'1" = 1.23
3'2" = 1.27
3'3" = 1.3
3'4" = 1.33
3'5" = 1.37
3'6" = 1.4
3'7" = 1.43
3'8" = 1.47
3'9" = 1.5
3'10" = 1.53
3'11" = 1.57
4'0" = 1.6

i made child and teen conversions too ... based on the average height listed above (4'0" for the child and 5'6" for the teen). they all worked fine too

Thanks!


I truly appreciate this post. I recently began my hand at Sims movie making & was trying to figure out how to permanently keep the height differences throughout gameplay. This worked perfectly with no problems.

Thank you so much!

Maybe you should use comma instead of point. IcemanTo pointed it out on the first page of this thread.

In case you guys don't know, if you just click 'Sim Browser' you can get ALL the character numbers you need.

Yes! I have only base Game + Nightlife and only commas works fine =D! You just have to look the left pannel. When you write "1.243", for example, you see "1243" in the left pannel, but if you put "1,243" it'll be just like this in L.P. =D!

Tried the height change and then started game and my neighborhood gone missing. Looks like I have to install the game again. Btw, i backed up my neighborhood folder but replacing back didnt do squat. I have base and nightlife.

#75 Old 25th Jun 2009 at 5:50 AM
Nevermind, i got it back by moving the "SIMS 2" folder out of EA games folder to the desktop, and when restarting game, the "Game" gave me back all the default neighborhood. At least I save my custom lots, now I can replace it back.

I don't really know why this height change doesn't work for me. Game engine is really picky.
