3/7/2018 : V6 (remove and replace v5)
fixed an error with moodlet descriptions not displaying properly.

2/28/2018 : V5 (remove and replace v4)
  • children can now get burn scars
  • sims will react when seeing a severely scarred sim. Strangers will get tense, and friends and family will feel sad and sympathetic.
  • severe scars will now remove eyebrows too
special note: this version includes the CAS scars. download either the CAS stand alone or the automatic version.

2/25/2018 : REALLY FIXED for Jungle Adventure

2/20/2018 : I've done an overhaul on how the Mod works behind the scenes, and incidentally solved some bugs like scars not fading for off-lot sims. Nothing in terms of game play changed. Update to version 2 and delete V1. Sims may or may not lose their Scar traits.

12/27/2017 : New options included for a normal or long lifespan flavor, depending on your game play style. Delete the old automatic scars package.

I've added a functionality to automatically add burn scars to sims after they survive a fire. This is my first XML tuning mod so there's bound to be a bug or two, but I tested quite a bit. (Many sims were burned in the making of this mod)
  • Sims now have a 33% chance of being burned on either their right side, left side, or full body. There's no coming out unscathed.
  • For over a day your sim will be miserable as their severe burns heal. They also will loose their hair!
  • After this time their hair will grow back and the scars will heal to a less red shade, closer to their original skin tone.
  • After several more days, corresponding to ~3 sim years, the scars will fade into their permanent state, a scar trait is displayed at every stage.
  • If a sim already has scars from a previous fire, they will become 100% burned.

Note: Any scars applied automatically will not show in CAS.

old description
This is a body detail overlay in the freckles slot that will give your sims full body or 1/2 body scars. The scars are similar to those people would get after surviving a fire. After a sim had an unfortunate fiery accident with the transform ray, I got the idea. I was also inspired by one of my close friends who grew up with such scars. There are a few variations that work well on light skin or dark skin (or alien skin). This is my first mod since I made things for Sims 1 in 2002. Fun to be back!
