Updated for version 1.82 / Modern Menswear Patch


New Mods and Mod Updates
A full list of all of my most up-to-date mods can be found on my itch.io profile. For troubleshooting and bug reports, please join me on the Sims After Dark Discord server. If you would like to help support the continued development of my mods, please consider contributing to my Patreon, where I occasionally post progress updates and exclusive access to beta versions of my newer mods. All my mods on MTS will continue to receive updates and support.

Recent Updates

Update 12/1/21
  • Updated the German translation for Egghead to fix typos and odd phrasing

Update 7/1/21
  • Oblivious Sims are now slightly more confused while their Dazed buffs are active.
  • Updated German translation by LittleDog1002

Update 6/17/21
  • Reworked how a few of the broadcasters work:
    • Arrogant Sims who are Feeling Bold will only offend people when they are actually talking. Occasionally, this will result in a Hurt sentiment. The higher strength their Confident moodlet is, the higher the chance. There is also a chance, they will offend everyone in the room and not just their conversation partners.
    • Egghead Sims who are Feeling Sharp will only bore people who they are talking to. The higher strength their Focused moodlet is, the higher the chance. Geeks, Geniuses, Good Sims, and other Eggheads are immune to this effect, and have a small chance to get an Impressed sentiment instead.
    • Restless Sims who are Having a Ball will only make others Playful when engaging in a fun activity themselves, or if they are talking directly to them. This sometimes results in a Close sentiment. Sims in a Sad mood, Sims with the Gloomy or Evil trait, and famous Sims with the Serious Actor quirk are all immune to this effect.
    • Perky Sims have been unchanged and will still freak out everyone in the room regardless of what they are doing.
  • Added Danish translations from Julesthedane.

Update 5/27/21
  • Updated for compatibility with the new patch
  • Added Build Buy preferences to the following traits:
    • Arrogant Sims prefer their homes to have mirrors
    • Calm and Stoic Sims like to have meditation stools
    • Daydreamers like easels and musical instruments
    • Eggheads want computers and bookcases in their homes
    • Perky Sims like homes full of flowers and art
    • Restless Sims want stereos and video games to keep their fun up
---


This trait pack adds a set of nine new emotional traits which fill out the roster with traits associated with moods like Embarrassed and extreme versions of the old traits with some drawbacks. All of them are available for children and older, and add boosts to Character Values from Parenthood. No custom whim sets were added to these traits.

This is my first mod ever, so any bug reports and gameplay feedback are more than welcome!

Traits
- Calm
Occasionally boosts the Fine emotion, removing much of the risk and reward of changing emotions.

- Insecure
Occasionally boosts the Embarrassed emotion, and causes stress around new people and when doing public performances. Making friends can be difficult but very rewarding for these Sims!

- Oblivious
Occasionally boosts the Dazed emotion, and has trouble gaining skills.

- Restless
Occasionally boosts the Bored emotion, and requires more fun than other Sims. Can be the life of the party if they get going, though.

- Stoic
Extreme version of Calm, perpetual bonus to Fine unless something causes them to experience a negative emotion.

- Arrogant
Extreme version of Self-Assured, very Confident but may rub other Sims the wrong way. These Sims also get a small bonus to the Business, Politics, and Criminal careers.

- Daydreamer
Extreme version of Creative, very Inspired but may have trouble concentrating. Once they’ve organized their mind, they have powerful boosts to Creative skills.

- Perky
Extreme version of Cheerful, very Happy but can creep out most other Sims.

- Egghead
Extreme version of Genius, very Focused but have a one-track mind. If you strike while the iron is hot, they can earn powerful boosts to Mental skills.

Installation
Add the NewEmotionalTraits package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder or a subfolder in that directory. Then add as many of the trait package files as you desire to the same folder.

Compatibility
As far as gameplay is concerned, only the base game should be required. Cosmetically, several moodlets use icons from expansion and game packs, and missing these packs may cause moodlets to appear blank. If you encounter a grey llama icon, please report where you saw it and which packs you are missing.

CC Depicted
Andrew's Pose Player and KawaiiStacie's Slice of Life mod were used to create the banner.

Overrides/Conflicts
The Merged version of this mod uses the following XMLs to establish proper trait conflicts in CAS:

I don't usually go for custom trait mods, but this time I might make an exception since I quite like what you've done with the drawbacks and benefits!

Very clever idea. I have a question about how do they replace each other and work with exteme default and negatives.

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.

None of my new traits replace old ones, and they can happily coexist with the base game content, just not all on the same sim.
If you have the merged package, all of the extreme versions will conflict with their original traits and vice versa. For example, Perky and Cheerful conflict as do Daydreamer and Creative etc. Insecure conflicts with Outgoing and Self-Absorbed. Calm and Stoic conflict with most other emotional traits. The XMLs I used establish these trait conflicts, but should not affect the actual behavior of the traits (all the buffs and moodlets should stay the same as base game).

Does that answer your question?

None of those fit into the Emotional category though?

I really like these. These seem very balanced, and will give more personality to both my own Sims, and to townies. Thank you!

Hey! I saw Roburky in the credits but just to be absolutely safe, is this mod compatible with Roburky's emotion mods?

These are great ideas for teen traits. Thank you! I'd really love to use some of them in my own game.
However, the .rar files don't want to open for me. A message pops up saying the archive has been moved or is damaged after double clicking on either one...
Is anyone else experiencing this problem or is it just me?

Yes, you can use them together. I do myself! The duration of most moodlets will change under the Meaningful Stories mod, but all of them work as expected.

I haven't been able to reproduce this issue. Even a freshly downloaded copy from MTS opens fine for me. It could be a corrupt download or an outdated version of WinRAR causing this. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Love the idea of this. I don't normally download traits but these might just give me a nudge to do so. I particularly like the bonuses and penalties for each, especially the Characteristics from the Parenthood pack. Very nicely done and very well thought out. Thank you for sharing!

Hi! Really nice traits. I'm trying to translate them to portuguese, but I'm having a few troubles. What is "feeling sharp controller hidden"? I've searched everywhere to understand this, but I can't find a clue!
