Latest Update
  • Compatibility Updated: Now Fully Compatible with Seasons + Season Pre-Patch, game version 1.44.77
  • Enhancement Request Implemented: Small Price increase for Naturalist & Poetic Traits
  • More Info: Please read my latest comment for a bit more info! Thank you.

Mod Description
This mod expands the Reward Store, offering you more options for spending your Satisfaction points. Specifically with this first version, all the Aspiration reward traits in the game so far are now available to buy! The catch? They're not cheap! Well, some are: the cheapest are 1500, the most expensive is 8000. Don't worry, you can still earn the reward traits the normal way by completing an Aspiration.

There are also Half Price, Quarter Price, and Free flavours available for download. Choose which one best suits your play style and enjoy! For more details including common questions and answers, please see below.

What expanded rewards are now available?

Questions and Answers

Why are some rewards so expensive?
  • Mostly because I felt they had a more powerful effect. Also, I set the prices of the Aspiration reward traits to roughly match the EA prices for default reward traits - which range from 500 to 10000 satisfaction points. If my prices are too high, try the Half Price, Quarter Price, or Free flavours.
Why are some rewards so cheap?
  • Usually because I felt they were weaker or their effect was more limited to a certain play style.
Would you consider changing the price of any of the rewards?
  • Yes I'd consider it. It's expected that I might change my mind on some of these and may change them. Also, if you have some feedback, you're welcome to let me know as long as you're polite.
Will you make a version with cheaper rewards?
  • I already have! There are Half Price, Quarter Price, and Free flavours available for download. Choose the one that best suits your play style.
Will you make a version with more expensive rewards?
  • I plan to add a double price version! I do not know when I will add this but I will definitely do it sometime.
Can you add this other trait or object to the mod?
  • It depends on the trait or object. Some - like the child Aspiration reward traits - were easy to include. Depending on which trait or object you mean, it may be simple, tricky, or impossible to add it. But I named the mod Expanded Rewards Store deliberately so I could potentially add other things too.

Compatibility & Conflicts
This mod is compatible with version 1.44.77.1020

If new aspirations arrive in a new pack, it is most likely this mod will still function, but will not offer the new aspiration rewards. I will probably update it soon after a pack with new aspirations, so don't worry.

This mod will conflict with any mod altering the following tuning file:
whims.whims_tracker_03B33DDF_00000000_CEE9A466EBFC13D1.xml

Additional Credits
Shimrod - Using his similar mod for years inspired me to make this. Thanks Shimrod!

Would this be considered a script mod or would I have to unzip the file?

It is not a script mod; it is simply a package mod. However, I always unzip .zip/.rar files unless told otherwise.

Thank you agentacefury! Yes this is not a script mod. So like normal mods, you should definitely unzip it and just add the .package file to your Mods folder.

I just learned about this mod from Senile Simmer during her Money Tree Challenge stream. I'm looking forward to trying it for my "background" Sims. Thank you!

Could i ask what you did decide in regards to that? It's not clear from the description if just the aspirations rewards are cheaper or you changed the standard ones too
I've literally just downloaded a cheaper reward mod but i love this one too! I'm hoping with your mod i would get the best of both worlds.
I always end up cheating and adding fresh chef to all my sims lol...least this way it's less cheaty.

Edit: Nevermind hehe, i just added it and had a look. And if anyone was wondering...they're all changed yay!

Thanks so much!

Hey Citti Cringle! Yes I very quickly made new cheaper versions - and indeed a free version - after the mod first came out.

Hi! Unfortunately if you have already bought a certain trait for that sim, or if the sim is not the correct age to buy the trait, then you will not be able to buy that trait. This is not the mod that prevents this, but the rules of the game.

Try removing other mods that affect traits or rewards. As you can see, you're the only one reporting this issue, so it suggests that it is not this mod causing it. Good luck!

Do you think it would be possible to add the "Eternal youth and immortal" traits? Someone here on MTS made them and I think it would be a cool addition
