The Sims 4 is EA’s flagship life simulator where you can take over and control the life of any character generated by the game. This game essentially allows you to play God and create and detail the life of your Sim entirely. The customization is down to the last detail, and you can customize everything down to the color of your character’s skin. One essential element of customization is height. Most players want to have a sim that has ideal or near-ideal height. However, a height slider option is not natively available in the game. You will have to use mods to adjust the height of your sim in-game, but recent reports have shed light on the fact that the height slider isn’t working for many. So, if you too are encountering a similar issue, consider reading this guide for more details.
Height slider mods are quite popular in the Sims 4 community since many players want their Sims to be of a specific height. Some characters or created sims might look weird or have weird body proportions in-game because of their height. So, adjusting the height of the sims gives players the overall satisfaction of true customization. However, mods are something that often make or break a game, and the height slider mods do seem to malfunction from time to time. Anyway, we have shared some workarounds for you to try and get rid of this issue.
Sims 4 Height Slider not working: How to fix it?
As mentioned earlier, a height slider is not a feature available natively in-game. This is something that has to be added to the game through the use of mods. So, after you install a height slider mod, and it just stops functioning properly, the whole experience can be very detrimental. In this case, you are going to try a few workarounds.
What should you do?
Multiple reports currently indicate that of the many height mods available, one seems to have broken down. The Luumia height slider mod seems to be the worst affected and is currently not working anymore. This is an issue since characters that have been created using this mod will be lost if you uninstall it. The only option you really have is to load another mod that allows you to customize the height of your sims. This will allow you to keep using the characters you created while also allowing you to adjust the height of your in-game sims accordingly.
If having two mods is not ideal, you might want to consider deleting the one that does not work and reinstalling a different mod that is compatible with the game in its current build. Our recommendations are GODJUL1‘s Height Mod and the redheadsims‘ height mod collection.
It is also possible that another update to the base game will solve the issues this mod is having. Until there is an official confirmation, there is no certain way to confirm this. While it is possible the mod is having a backend issue, it is unlikely. We say this considering the scale of users that are facing this issue. If there is no other apparent solution, the best method is to uninstall and try another height slider mod.
What happens next?
Well, really, nothing. Since mods are created independently and not by EA, there is little you can do. You will have to wait for the mod developers themselves to post an official update or make changes to the mod to make it work. Without their involvement, there is little that players can do in this situation. Our advice, therefore, is to move over to another mod. On that note, you can also try a few workarounds that are listed below:
1). Remove other in-game mods
Removing other installed mods in Sims 4 might solve the issue. It is possible that there is a clash with another mod that is higher on the priority list, and because of this, the height slider mod is not working in-game. If this is the case, removing all mods except for the height slider mod can help.
2). Check compatibility
Make sure the version of the installed mod is compatible with the latest version of the Sims 4 game. If not, such issues will occur. So, make sure that you have installed the compatible version of the mod.
3). Reinstall the game
If you are still having issues with an updated and compatible mod, you might want to reinstall the entire game. There could be inherent software clashes with the game and mods, which can be solved by reinstalling the game entirely. After a fresh installation, this issue might not exist.
