Compatible with Patch 1.79 ~ No Update Needed

Change Log:

~ September 20th 2021 ~ Updated Italian strings.
~ June 11th 2021 ~ Updated French translation.
~ June 10th 2021 ~ Multiple updates today!
  • The Custom Whims and The Personality Mod are now split into separate downloads. The Personality Mod adds the traits to the reward store but the Custom whims are now separate. If you do not install the Custom Whims package, you will not see my Custom-made whims.
  • Frank’s Pack Test Mod is no longer required. The code wasn’t working properly and it turns out Whims won’t support it. The mod is still safe to use even if you don’t have all the packs listed.
  • Fixed the ‘Own A Business’ whim so purchasing a business from the computer also completes the whim.
  • Updated the ‘Become A Spellcaster’ whim because it didn’t seem to complete consistently. Now it should.
  • Updated the ‘Have Baby’ whim so it should complete, regardless of where the birth takes place.
  • Fixed the Public Woohoo whim so it should actually complete all the time. Thanks everyone for your feedback with this one!
  • Fixed a series of small tuning errors. While these didn't stop the mod from working, they were irritating me. Thank you ChippedSim for your assistance with locating and fixing these!
  • Updated Russian translation.
~ May 20th 2021 ~ Added Chinese translation.
~ May 17th 2021 ~ Updated Polish translation. Added Danish translation.
~ May 16th 2021
- Made the entire mod Base Game compatible. You will need Frankk's Pack Test Mod installed! The mod does nothing on its own but does allow my mod to be properly base game compatible. You will get Last Exception errors if you do not have Frankk’s mod installed. This now means you will no longer get whims come up if you do not have all the listed packs. Thank you ChippedSim for the suggestion!
- Fixed the ‘Buy Small Pet’ whim. It wasn’t completing properly but now it is.
- Updated and improved the ‘Ask To Move In’ whim. Now the whim is more specific and will not generate if your Sim’s partner is in the active household. It will show up for any of the reward traits, except Romance Sims. They will never roll this whim. Thank you to Marco for all the help with targeted whims!
- Increased priority of the whimsets. Now the whims in this mod should show up more frequently.
- Decreased priority for whims relating to buying objects.
- Added new whims:
            -Public Woohoo (Romance Sim)
            -Visit A Haunted House (Knowledge Sim)
            -Move House (Fortune Sim)
            - Go Streaking (Pleasure Sim)
- Updated French, Dutch, Russian and German translations.
~ May 13th 2021 ~ Added Russian and Italian translations.
~ May 11th 2021 ~ Added Polish translation.
~ May 10th 2021 ~ Added German and Portuguese translations. Tweaked some of the Satisfaction rewards to make whims like Have A Baby and Own a Business more worthwhile.

The Personality Mod is the first larger mod I've made for The Sims 4.

You Will Need:
  • Scumbumbo's XML Injector ~ This makes the traits show up in the reward store. Don’t worry; the XML Injector doesn’t add anything to your game, it just allows this mod to work as intended.
  • The Custom Whims Mod ~ This is a loader mod for all my custom whims, so if you want my new custom-made whims, you'll need to download this too.
What Does It Do?
The Personality Mod adds 6 reward traits to the Reward Store. Each of these traits are inspired by the six Aspirations from Sims 2: Family, Fortune, Knowledge, Pleasure, Popularity and Romance. Each trait costs 0 Satisfaction Points, so you can add the traits to newly created sims, straight out of Create-A-Sim.

Each trait has it's own set of Whims and those whims are directly inspired by the appropriate Wants from Sims 2. Because of this, the reward traits act like a base personality and influence the whims your Sim puts in.
For example, a Fortune Sim may wish to own their own business; a Family Sim may want to have a baby or adopt a dog; A Knowledge Sim will be curious about the supernatural etc.

The Whims
While there were some excellent whims available to suit each trait, I felt like many were missing. As a result, I set about creating my own. This mod contains around 40 new whims, each associated with the six reward traits. Among those whims are several whims for individual careers. Each of those whims will only turn up in a Sim has certain traits or skills, so they won't be random.

Once again, the new whims are based on Wants from Sims 2 and should line up fairly nicely. 
The exact whims for each trait are as follows:



The Technical Details
The Custom Whims are now in a separate file and can be downloaded here: The Custom Whims Mod
The Personality Mod package contains the reward traits and has attached to them all the Maxis whims relating to those traits. The additional Custom Whims package has all my custom-made whims inside it. Download both if you want the custom whims too.
This mod is Base Game Compatible. You'll see additional whims if you have the following packs installed:
Get To Work
Get Together
City Living
Cats & Dogs
Seasons
Get Famous
Discover University
Outdoor Retreat
Dine Out
Vampires
Parenthood
Strangerville
Realm of Magic
Bowling Night
Toddlers Stuff
My First Pet Stuff

The mod currently supports the following translations:
English (Me)
Chinese (GreenOnionC)
Danish (Josie)
Dutch (Britt Boons)
French (Kimikosoma)
German (Hendrik McSims)
Italian (Isy)
Polish (webkinzfrog)
Portuguese (Viniciousvill)
Russian (Origamika Group)
Spanish (Sabrina Garcia)

Known Issues
No known issues at this time.

Conflicts
This mod doesn't conflict with any other mods at this time.

Planned Updates
In the future, I plan a few updates for the mod:
~ New whims: I want to include some new whims relating to later packs. Additionally, I want to include a few more to line up better with Sims 2; particularly for Pleasure, Family and Romance sims.
~ Interaction Menu: I have had a request for an interaction to add the traits to the Sim, so I will be working to include this in an update soon(ish).
~ An interaction to allow Sims to discover another Sim's personality.

They shouldn't impact that, no. I have Pancake's More Traits In Cas mod myself and there should be no conflict.
If the traits aren't showing up, try redownloading the XML Injector. You need at least Version 3 for these to work

BE says invalid tuning after yesterday's patch. I'm not noticing anything wrong in game and I didn't see it listed in the broken mods list at the official forum.
