Gentle Trait

by Lazurite Posted 18th Jun 2020 at 5:21 PM - Updated 28th Oct 2021 at 2:43 PM by Lazurite : Removed +1,000 version and added conflict with a new trait of mine.

Update: 10/24/21: Removed support for the +1,000 version. It really just existed for flavor, anyway, and was surprisingly difficult to keep up. Also, added a conflict with my Hair-Trigger Temper trait!

Update: 2/21/21: I fixed a critical bug that was causing I've Had It! to show up when the Sim is NOT angry, rather than when they are. I really should have tested the darned thing before I put such a majorly bugged version up- I promise I won't let a mistake like this happen again!

Update: 1/29/21: Haha, remember when I said no more updates? I lied. I remade this mod from the ground up now that I'm back into the game!

Update 6/18/20: I realized that I erroneously set the Anger multiplier to only 0.2x, instead of the intended 0.5x. I would have fixed this earlier, but it was in the upload queue by the time I spotted it. This has been rectified- I spent too much time on that snap moodlet for it to go unused!
Later the same day: Conflicts with Evil, Mean, and Hot-Headed have been implemented! I also figured this one out between submitting this and it appearing on the site. It also has the CAS select animation of Family-Oriented!

These Sims are the sweetest Sims you'll ever meet, and are very easy to get along with due to their kind nature. They don't get angry very often, but once they do... look out.

This is a trait in the Emotional (meant to be Social, but I keep putting off changing it) category for Sims that are overwhelmingly sweet and slow to anger... but Beware the Nice Ones is in full effect, so best not to mess with them once they do get angry.

Under normal circumstances:
  • Their kind nature means they gain friendly relationships at a whopping double speed, and romantic relationships at 1.5x speed; they also suffer less relationship loss, as people tend to be more forgiving of their social miscues since they know they're good at heart.
  • The Happy moodlets from making new friends will be much stronger.
  • They feel Happiness 1.5x more strongly; however, they also feel Sadness 1.2x more strongly as a result of their empathy.
  • With Parenthood, they receive a bonus in Empathy, Conflict Resolution, and Emotional Control.
  • They have the following Whims: Hug Someone, Give a Toddler a Hug, Compliment Someone, Make a Friend, Become Happy, Donate to Charity, Level up in Charisma Skill, and (with Parenthood) Volunteer with Family.
  • Their Angry moodlets have only 0.5x strength, meaning they very rarely get Angry... which leads into their other major draw.

On the rare occasion that Angry becomes their dominant emotion, everything changes.
I've Had It!! +1 Angry: Even {0.SimFirstName} can feel angry sometimes...
This moodlet only lasts for an hour, but during that hour, their rage has quite the noticeable impact.
  • Their relationship gains will be zeroed out, and their relationship losses tripled.
  • All skill gains will be completely zeroed out.
  • Their Energy and Fun will drain at triple speed- being Angry is exhausting, and they hate it!
  • They will have a new Mean social, Lash Out.
  • They will broadcast a Tense moodlet to all Sims around them- Uh-Oh... +1 Tense: There's a reason they tell you to beware the nice ones. The sight of a normally gentle Sim losing their composure can make even the bravest souls nervous.

Other than that, I hope you enjoy the trait!

Hm... should I make the tense broadcaster a scared one, or no?

Hi! I love this trait, but unfortunately when I have it in my game, I can't open the profile of any sim (including pets). Could that be fixed? Thank you for the otherwise lovely trait!

If you do ever decide to update this mod again you should, I think that sounds like an awesome idea.

Just wanted to say that this is one of my FAVORITE traits. I give it to half of my Sims. Thanks a bunch!
