Then uncompress the files and drag and drop them into the game’s mods folder.

You will also want to ensure you enable mods in the sims 4.

Go to Options in the Other tab and check the boxes Script Mods Allowed & Enable Custom Content and Mods.

How To Use The Sims 4 More Traits Slots
With the mod installed, there’s not much to it. You have two options.
You can either start a new household, and you’ll have access to the extra slots based on the chosen life stage of your sim from the get-go:
- Toddlers will have two trait slots instead of 1
- Children will have three trait slots instead of 1
- Teens will now have four trait slots, as opposed to 2
- Young Adults, Adults, & Elders will all have five trait slots instead of 3
Note: If you have the Cats & Dogs expansion pack, this mod will not affect your pets’ number of trait slots.
If you are playing an ongoing game, you will need to use cheats to assign new traits for your sim.
Assigning More Traits to Existing Sims
Usually, when you first use the create-a-sim screen, you assign your sim’s name, gender, age group, physical features, and traits.
When you click Save, these settings are locked in, and you can no longer access the CAS screen.
Now, having the mod installed, you will have extra sims 4 traits slots, but they will be empty.
How to fill them?
The only way to modify your traits selection is by using cheats and enabling the handy CAS full edit mode.
In order to enable cheats and the full edit mode, follow these simple steps:
- On your PC, to open the cheat box, press [CTRL] + [SHIFT] + [C] on your keyboard
- With the cheat console opened, type testingcheats true or testingcheats on
- Then press [Enter]
- After enabling cheats, type in the cheat code cas.fulleditmode
- Click the [ESC] key to exit the cheats window
- Hold [SHIFT] and then click on the sim you want to change traits
- In the action menu, pick Modify in CAS
- From the CAS screen, you can modify your sim however you like, including their traits, which is what we want.
Now, you are free to fill those extra slots however you like, and the only remaining issue is choosing which trait to add.
