UPDATE

I finally fixed this trait! I recreated this trait from the ground up in Mod Constructor V4 so I don't have to jerry-rig the custom interaction onto the trait every time I want to update this.

Head's Up: If you downloaded this mod before, the game may remove the old Well-Aligned trait from your Sim and you'll have to manually readd the trait with cheats. It's a small sacrifice for a cleaner mod and it shouldn't happen again as long as I use MC V4.

Changes
  • Reworked Discuss Meditation interaction. I used Zerbu's Enthuse interaction template and spruced it up with multiple speech balloons. Also, I might've added a surprise.
  • Rewritten strings. I'm a Creative Writing major.
  • Redid whim set. Nothing major.

Well-Aligned Trait
Description: These Sims become Happy when giving or receiving massages, doing yoga or meditation, or visiting a Spa. They can also Discuss Meditation with other Sims but will feel discontent if they haven't practiced their Wellness skill in a while.

Ages: Teen to Elder (Child Sims can't do yoga)

Category: Personality > Hobby

Requires Spa Day GP

Mod Design

The Spa Day game pack is fun, Wellness-skill items and all. However, a lack of a CAS trait in the DLC left a space for this kind of mod to fill and interact with Spa Day's features.

In order to distinguish this mod from other Wellness-related custom traits, I created a Maxis Match trait. Within my coding capabilities, I used Well-Aligned to mirror your typical trait in CAS. No 2x skill boosts, no changed default emotion states, no +6 positive moodlets. Those are fun, but they don't fit every play style, including mine. The Well-Aligned trait supplements the Wellness Skill and Spa venue gameplay without being OP. It's not the flashiest, but it's aligned (heh) with EAxis's vision.

Features

Two New Moodlets: Nothing drastic, but these two unique moodlets incentivize your Sim to do Wellness activities and visit the Spa.
  • Well, Well, Well!: +1 Happy for 4 hours while a Well-Aligned Sim is doing an activity that builds Wellness (i.e. yoga and meditation)
  • Reveling in Spa Day: +1 Happy continuous while a Well-Aligned Sim is at a Spa Venue.

New Interaction:
  • Discuss Meditation: A reskinned Enthuse interaction which allows a Sim to preach the benefits of meditation. All animations and icons come from the game, but it gives one more option for players wanting more trait interactions.

Don't forget to enable script mods. Otherwise, this interaction will not appear.

Whims:
  • Become Focused, Buy a Massage Table, Buy a Meditation Stool, Buy a Yoga Mat, Do a Yoga Routine, Give a Massage, Level Up in Wellness Skill, Meditate on the Meditation Stool, Get a Foot Massage, Get a Hand Massage, Get a Massage from a Massage Therapist.

Future Plans:
  • A moodlet inspired by the Active Trait's "Not Enough Exercise" where a Well-Aligned Sim becomes Tense if they go a day without practicing Wellness. This will balance out this trait's benefits while adding a fun twist.
  • Custom autonomy. One day, one day.

Versions:
  • V1.10 Rebuilt from scratch with Mod Constructor V4. Revised some strings. Added Speech Balloons to Discuss Meditation and tweaked some values. Revised whim set.
  • V1.00b: Fixed pie menu icon for Discuss Meditation, which was broken in the Seasons patch.
  • V1.00: Mod is released!

Credits:
  • Tools: Mod Constructor V4, s4pe
  • Aknowledgements: Thank you to members of Deaderpool's and Zerbu's Discord servers for feedback and pointers, including roBurky, Basemental, Bzeebee, and whomever I forgot.

Have fun!
