Overview
This is an update for Add More Traits to Your Sims! by Rainbow_Brite Posted 6th Jul 2010 at 5:05PM - Updated 14th Jul 2011 at 7:56PM. It has some extra code information for later EP's which were released after RainbowBrite left the game.

Things you should know
  • Upon adding this mod, any Townies or NPC's will be automatically assigned the maximum number of traits allowable for their age
  • any New Sim that are generated by the game will be automatically assigned the maximum number of traits allowable for their
  • Editing your Sim in CAS or Modifying their Traits via the Cheat Console, can only be assigned 5 tratis (EA Default)
  • Any active Sims will retain their original traits and will not increase unless you use MasterController or AwesomeMod to add them. (NOTE: I dont have instructions for using AwesomeMod)
    • If you're using MasterController, You will need the MasterController Base Module and the Cheats Module
    • Simply click on your Sim, then NRaas > MasterController > Advanced > Traits > Change
  • Sims are bound by the max traits when traveling, 5 by default or the version max of this mod (8, 12, 16, or 20)
  • If your sim gets an additional trait via social networking, you should decline it. If you're using this mod you already have the traits you want, by game default it will assume your sim has 5 traits and you're adding a 6th one. So if you accept the social trait you will lose any above 6 and will need to re add them.
  • If you're using a mod to unhide traits, all traits will count toward the max total.
  • Sometimes active sims have issues aging up and need to be reset. You may need to remove additional traits, age them up, then add the traits back in.
  • This mod does not affect pets, I've looked for the equivalent tuning for pets, but have yet to find it.
  • Simply removing this mod will not return the trait limit to default, they will still retain the number of traits you gave them unless you remove them. See Below

TO REMOVE ADDITIONAL TRAITS
To remove additional traits with MasterController (you will need the Base Module and Cheats Module)
  1. For the Active Family, click on a Sim > NRaas > MasterController > Advanced > Traits > Drop Traits, then you must enter the number of traits you wish to remove (repeat for each sim)
  2. For Town (non active) Sims, click on the City Hall or any Computer > NRaas > Sim > Advanced > Traits > Drop Traits
    1. then you will need to supply the target Sims - use "Age"
    2. select Young Adult, Adult, & Elder
    3. on the next screen, click on "All" at the top
    4. Now you must choose how many traits to remove (if you are using the 20 max version and wish to return to default 5, then you would enter 15)
    5. Repeat steps a,b,c & d for Teens, Child, and Baby/Toddler Ages

Versinos
There are 4 versions, each one with a little higher max. You can only use 1 version at a time.
AGEDefaultVer 1Ver 2Ver 3Ver 4
Young Adult+58121620
Teen 4691215
Child 346810
Baby, Toddler 22345

Just a question: this mod will work in older patches? I've stopped updating my game at patch 1.57

Just thought I would let you know; I have a self-made mod that does the same thing, and I've found that there isn't a problem aging up if you have NRaas installed. I don't know if it's MC or Error Trap, but the mod will automatically reset the Sim on aging up and the aging up will occur correctly. The Sim will keep his/her current traits, and new traits will be added as well.

That said, any townie aging up WILL reset when he or she ages. (I think your own Sims do as well.) Since you can't age up while you have actions queued up (at least I don't think I've ever been able to), being reset isn't a huge deal, but it does happen.

If you don't use NRaas I can't say the results, since I've never played a game without Twallan's mods.

Thanks for updating this mod! The only thing I was wondering is why you changed toddler/babies traits to 5 instead of 9 from the original mod. I'm just curious.

It should work with older patches. As always, when adding new mods, backup your saves first.

Using MasterController to add traits: Click on your sim, then click on NRaas > MasterController > Advanced > Traits > Change
