This mod requires Andrew and Orange Mittens's Playable Pets Mod, found here. (You wouldn't see any difference without it as it is needed to view your pets Simology panel. )

Changelog:


As the curious simmer that I am, when I first played with Andrew and Orange Mittens Playable Pets mod, I wanted to know what all those blank "Reward Traits" really were.

So I went about doing some quick research and messed around with some XML files, after which I finally figured out how to give those blank traits some names. I also went in and gave them icons, which I thought were appropriate.

After doing this, I decided that all this new information might be too much for some simmers, and I also created a version which will remove the blank traits completely, so that only the CAS traits will be shown for your pets.

Pet Quirks with Names



As seen above, this version names each Pet Quirk so that you can be better informed on what exactly your pet loves or fears.

Pet Quirks Hidden



This version completely removes the blank traits so that you can have a cleaner simpler Simology panel.

Make sure to only choose one version as there's no point in having both.

Enjoy!

There are currently no known conflicts, but any mod that uses any of the following resources will conflict.

I actually use the Hider myself. I thought I wanted to know everything, but then soon realized it took away the mystery, as you said. I also like the less cluttered Simology panel, but I figured some people would still enjoy knowing all of their pets quirks.

I have no clue how to do something like that, at least right now.

I'm pretty new to modding, and this is my first mod.

I figured out it'd be much more complicated, it's more my wishful thinking about how the game could've been designed Also, I'm even more impressed considering that's your first mod! Can't wait to see more

I'm pretty sure there is a cheat to add and remove traits. But no, this is purely to have the quirks be visible/hidden.

EDIT: I did a quick google search and found these two cheats:

traits.equip_trait {TraitNameNoSpaces}
traits.remove_trait {TraitNameNoSpaces}

My alien toddler have maxed out values good and bad after aging up from a baby with this mod lol. Never had a problem like this with any of my toddlers until now. Thanks for the hard work but I guess I can live without knowing my pet's quirks.

My mod doesn't touch any parenthood stuff, so your issue has nothing to do with my mod unfortunately.

It literally just changes strings so you must have another mod causing issues.

I love the Pets EP, but I have to ask.... Who the heck @ EA didn't want us to have some control of our pets? sure it's not realistic, but it's a GAME... and TS3 had full control & then some... so, again, W** EA? Smh.. Thankfully MODDERS are capable of correcting such ridiculous oversight... One Huge reason I have not, nor will EVER buy the PS4 version, no mods, No Dice!
