Sims 4 Character Values Overhaul

Sims 4 Character Values Overhaul

This is an evolution of my previous mod: Lower Threshold for Parenthood Traits . As such, it will conflict with it. Use either this new mod or the other one. Do NOT use both.
The Character Value (CV) system introduced in Parenthood is underdeveloped and hasn’t been updated in years. Currently, only 12 traits out of the 50+ traits available to Sims have an impact on CVs. Also, if a child ages up with a worrisome trait like “Evil,” their existing CVs will remain largely unchanged. This mod corrects that and goes several steps further.

What This Mod Does

  1. All traits, including Toddler Traits and expansion pack Traits, will now have an impact on Character Values when a Sim is first created.
  2. All thresholds for earning Character Value Traits (Unfeeling, Compassionate, etc) have been rebalanced for better gameplay.
  3. Sims will start with a random positive or negative value in each Character Value so that no two Sims will be exactly alike.
  4. Character Values will now decay over time (very slowly). You won’t notice a difference day-to-day. I might adjust this in the future.
  5. Toddler, Child, and Teen sims with Character Values in the red will be passed a hidden trait that effects their autonomy and whims.
  6. When a Sim ages up, the trait they age up with will have an impact on their current Character Values. (Requires XML Injector)
Optional Add Ons
  1. CharacterValuesOverhaul_BlockRewardsAddOn
    • As punishment for poor parenting, certain reward traits are blocked for Sims who have Character Values in the red and Sims who have negative Character Value traits (Unfeeling, Bad Manners, etc).
    • If you have Outdoor Retreat, put both the BlockRewardsAddOn file and the BlockRewardsAddOn_GP01 file into your Mods folder

Recent Updates
Updated: 9/02/21
  • separated BlockRewardsAddOn into two packages

Compatibility

This mod is NOT compatible with my Lower Threshold for Parenthood Traits mod. This mod is intended to replace that one.
This mod should be compatible with most other mods currently available for download.

Despite the emphasis on traits in this mod, no trait files have been modified. The main files this mod modifies are the lifeSkillStatisitc XMLs and the LifeSkills_Autonomy buff XMLs. I’ve yet to encounter another mod that touches these. I’ve also taken care to make sure that the Whims and Whim Sets my mod touches does not conflict with anything Bienchen’s "sims4me_whimoverhaul" touches. As such, you shouldn’t run into any conflicts.

For an added challenge, you can use my mod with Kuttoe’s "mini mod: parenthood hard mode". But, be warned. You’ll be seeing a lot of red!


Some features of this mod require XML Injector

My mod will work fine without it, but if you want ALL the features of this mod, you just need to make sure that you have "XmlInjector_Script_v4.ts4script" in your mods folder. If you already have it, you’re golden. If you don’t, you can download it here.

If you’re hesitant to download XML Injector, you can learn more about it here.

Future Updates

I will be fine tuning this mod over over the coming months and adding more features.

Do let me know your feedback.
