This mod is intended to be run on Patch 1.63-1.69, see Patch Level Compatibility.


This mod changes the Portrait Panel to display a maximum of 24 sim portraits, useful for playing overstuffed families.

Clicking a portrait with the middle mouse button will now bring up the sim menu. Similarly, double clicking on a portrait will do the same (for those of you sans middle mouse buttons).

A new interaction is added to each Sim called "NRaas \ Portrait Panel" which can be used to bring up the setting for the mod.

An additional button has been added to the bottom of the panel that can be used to scroll through any sims beyond the 24th.
  • Middle clicking on this button will bring up the Settings for the mod

While this mod can help make overstuffed households more playable by increasing the number of portraits that can appear in the panel on the left side of your screen, it does NOT by itself lift the limits on the number of sims allowed per household. To find the mods you need to create, play, and manage overstuffed households in various ways, see Which Mod FAQ.

Credit to Michse222 at ModTheSims for the development of the original 24 portrait LAYO.

This mod overrides the "HudSkewer" LAYO, and will conflict with any other mod that does the same.

If you are already using a Core-mod that includes this functionality, DO NOT install this mod.

This mod handles roommates differently than EA Standard, in that they will be displayed on the panel as if they were normal sims.
  • To change this functionality, add the "Only Selectable" filter choice to each of the columns. Doing so will hide your unselectable roommates.
