Update: 10/4/20: I've lost all interest in this game and modding for it, which means... no more updates. Sorry, folks. If you'd like to adopt this mod, feel free! Change anything you like, too- I'm not so proud of this one, anymore.

Update 6/18/20: Ding-dong! Trait's updated! The conflicts with Romantic and Outgoing, plus the CAS animation of Unflirty, have been restored! I'm not actually fully sure if the errors you guys've been reporting have been fixed, but I've received no complaints regarding my newest trait, which was made for the same version, so I think it should be fine! The trait's text has also been degenderized.

I'm very new to making mods, so please tell me if anything is wrong, or if there's anything I should add!

Thanks to horrific betrayal in their past, this Sim has a hard time trusting others. They form positive relationships slower, will never become Flirty, and are affronted by most attempts at kindness, mistaking them for attempts to deceive them. And if you manage to earn their trust, only to betray them? God help you...

This is a trait within the Social category for Sims who have been damaged severely by betrayal, and have closed their heart to others. The Flirty emotion is blocked, and the Social need decays at a much slower pace. Skill gain for all Social skills is also slowed down by 0.6x. This trait has no new buffs or whims, but instead replaces several pre-existing buffs related to relationships, mostly with powerful Angry or Tense ones.

Original Buff: Break Up Blues
New Buff: Of Course- +3 Angry. {0.SimFirstName} almost believed it would last. How foolish they were!

Original Buff: Dumped?!?
New Buff: Good Riddance!- +4 Angry. Hmph! {0.SimFirstName} was better off without that plum anyway!

Original Buff: Cheating Discovered
New Buff: YOU!- +5 Angry. {0.SimFirstName} almost can't believe what they saw... After they fought so hard to trust that person!

Original Buff: Unfaithful Love
New Buff: Hey!- +3 Angry. What do they think they're doing?! Just when {0.SimFirstName} was learning to trust again!

Original Buff: Drifting Love
New Buff: I Saw That!- +3 Angry. If what {0.SimFirstName} thinks is happening IS happening... it better not be.

Original Buff: Pleasant Conversation
New Buff: Going Well For Now- +1 Tense. Oh, this person SEEMS perfectly pleasant... But so did... So did... {0.SimFirstName} is still suspicious.

Original Buff: Deep Connection
New Buff: Deep Connection...- +1 Tense. For a Sim with Trust Issues, deep connections are cause for Tension, not Happiness.

Original Buff: New Friend
New Buff: Oh Dear...- +1 Tense. New friends means... new opportunities to be hurt. {0.SimFirstName} isn't so sure about this...

Original Buff: Made a New Good Friend!
New Buff: Oh Jeez...- +3 Tense. This person is learning more and more of what makes {0.SimFirstName} tick... which means they're learning more and more about how to hurt them.

Original Buff: New Best Friend
New Buff: Trust?- +1 Happy. "Best Friend". What a set of words... {0.SimFirstName} has been through so much with this person- maybe they... really are their friend?

Original Buff: New Partner
New Buff: Huh?- +3 Tense. Romance. Exclusivity. Putting your entire heart in your partner's hands and expecting them to be gentle with it. That's... scary. What has {0.SimFirstName} gotten themself into?

Original Buff: Engaged!
New Buff: Here We Go- +4 Tense. It's locked in. It won't be long... soon they'll officially be married. {0.SimFirstName} isn't sure if their heart is pounding out of their chest out of nerves or... something else.

Original Buff: Unwanted Proposal
New Buff: Too Scary!- +6 Tense. Whoa whoa whoa! {0.SimFirstName} isn't ready for this kind of commitment AT ALL!

Original Buff: Just Married!
New Buff: Onward...- +3 Happy. As {0.SimFirstName} stares into their bethrothed's eyes, they think maybe... maybe it's worth the risk this time.

There are also two new Mean category social interactions- the Suspicious Introduction (which is renamed to the Accusatory Introduction when used by an Angry or Tense Sim), and Question Motives (which is renamed to Accuse of Having Ulterior Motives under the same circumstances).

Man, I don't even wanna know how the big-name modders feel when they have to update their mods, if my humble self is getting this frustrated...
Thanks for letting me know, I'll fix it soon.

Guys. GUYS. I am actually so happy right now. I finally figured out how to introduce conflicts and selection animations on my own!! So the next update will have those features return! I'm not sure what to do in the way of fixing the trait, since I gotta figure that out too, but!!! I'm overjoyed!!!

would love to see a version that doesn't block the flirty mood, as well as does not conflict with romantic or outgoing. Realistically you can still be outgoing and a flirt while not being super trusting of others. This trait is like taking it to the far extreme of the spectrum. great idea but flexibility and options are a good thing when it comes to traits you can use for personality and story.

Yeah, that's a good point. My reasoning for the conflicts was that Outgoing and Romantic Sims are emotionally dependent on interacting with others- what with Outgoing Sims suffering loneliness more strongly and Romantics getting a negative moodlet from not doing romantic things- an aspect of life a Sim with this trait has given up on. Still, I'll admit, the Flirty block seemed a lot more logical a year ago. I'd quite love to make such a version, but I've lost all motivation for modding... It'll have to wait.

Wow! I'm actually regaining interest in updating them lately (except for this trait in specific), but it's an honor to be noticed by you- I can't live without your More CAS Traits mod!
