Introducing Height

« previous entry | next entry »

To get some variety and inspired by chickadeelee, I decided to introduce height to the sims of Mattsmyra.

Each sim will have a number from 1-100 which is connected to height in a table built on a normal distribution curve



http://www.acastat.com/Statbook/normaldist.htm



For each number 1-100 a certain height is assigned. Girls can be assigned numbers between 1-75 and boys 25-100.
(Aliens are an exception). The number is then translated to a stretchSkeleton dimension connected to the height.

Examples:
Number  Height   Stretch
1-2        148 cm   0,915
39-44     172 cm  1,0
99-100   208 cm  1,13

CAS and Townie Sims get a random number, while the number for a sim born in game is random in a span depending on the parents' heights. Girls can end up 2 numbers shorter than their shortest parent and boys can end up 2 numbers taller than their tallest parent, with max/min numbers as stated above.

When Dan Mattsson, 196 cm (no 76), has children with Carina, 156 cm (no 11), we have a lot of variety.

Tobias can be 25-78 (not shorter than 25, but taller than his father) and ends up on 37 (168 cm)
Ida can be 9-75 (shorter than her mother but not taller than 75) and ends up on 24 (164 cm)
Daniel 25-78, is 56 (180 cm)
Loke 25-78, is 60 (180 cm)
Stella 9-75, is 14 (156 cm)


Complicated, yes, but funnier :)

Do you get your skeletons to stick? Mine bounce back when I leave the lot.

This sounds like fun! I've done height differences before in a Middle Earth neighborhood. I had shorter heights for hobbits & dwarves, and my elves were a little taller than the humans. It was fun. I look forward to seeing how this works out in Mattsmyra. Now I just need to read faster. ;)

Thanks!
Unfortunately it seems the heights don't stick, just as predicted by Itland, but I'll probably stick to it for a while anyway.

Ah, that's kind of a bummer, but it sounds like fun. I've always felt some of my sims are taller than others. Like Allegra in Breeze Point and her husband Craig....they just "feel" taller than her twin Adona or most of the other sims. :)
