Sims 4 Automatic Beards – by flerb
How the mod works
Male young adult, adult, and elder sims of your choosing will automatically grow facial hair!
To activate beard growth on a sim, click on any sink object in game and choose a beard color out of the default EA 18 colors.
Beards will grow slowly over time as in real life. There are now 2 addons to let you choose a different speed to match your game play style. I prefer the long lifespan. Just make sure the main automatic beards and the addon are in the same folder. No addon will grow beards in the normal timespan.
time to a medium beard is as follows
normal life ~3 days
short life addon ~1.5 days
long life addon ~12.5 days
Beards are assigned to the lipstick layer and will blend in with a sim’s “permanent” facial hair style over time. This layering allows for interesting combinations of color and compatibility with custom content beard styles. For example a sim with a goatee will retain their goatee after shaving.
Trimming and Shaving
Sims are able to trim their beards to shorter lengths or shave at any sink. A sim can only shave stubble, so if they have a beard they will have to trim it first. The picker options will change accordingly. Sinks will get dirtier when shaving or trimming beards, clumps of hair will fall on the floor. Sometimes sims that shave might nick themselves.
If a sim can’t wait for their beard to grow in, they can order Beard Growth Tonic found on the computer under “Order…”. Be cautious as sim pharmaceuticals has not properly tested the tonic and it may cause side effects if not consumed properly…
