Updated with German translation, thanks to Sims4Adults!

Hello S4 Modlings! I present to you my first upload: Tense Sense!

This Trait adds 4 unique moodlets which will both challenge and benefit affected Sims. They will randomly gain two powerful negative Moodlets, Tense Stress and Tense Anger, the former more frequently than the latter. If near Sims with which their Friendship is below 60% and Romance is below 30%, the Sim will gain Don't Want To Deal With Them, a powerful negative Moodlet. While in a neutral or positive Mood and free of the aforesaid Moodlets, Sims will gain a very powerful neutral Moodlet, Peace Of Mind.

Due to their cumbersome social difficulties, they have no actual need for social interactions; their Social Need bar will never decrease. There are many other nit-picky details I've attached to all three Moodlets, viewable in the spoilers below.

This looks like it will profoundly impact a sim's life in such a difficult way. I simply adore it. The positive and negative buffs are a delight as well, since nothing is ever all good or bad. I am particularly excited and impressed with the detail regarding the proximity of sims not as well liked. That's genius. What a great trigger. I love it. Can't wait to watch it unfold. This mod won't trigger any sims to have deaths with bad moodlets right? Regardless, fantastic trait. Can't wait to see what your come up with next :)

if you made a version where the social need doesn't decay, I'd totally play it! (as a rule I tend not to like those). I don't mind if it's challenging gameplay - I have a Sim in mind (me, lol!) who has a lot of mental hangups like these. I think this is a brilliant mod which adds complexity to gameplay, so great thinking!

Thus far, the only mortal danger a Tense Sense Sim has is when they've been in proximity to 'unfriendlies' for 9-10 stages (360-400 Sim-minutes). An Angry +7/+10 is extremely hard to pass off! (Staying near a mirror is a wise choice during outings with friends, as you can Calm Self Down in a Tense mood before it gets dangerous)

Being Very Tense will not cause death, just rudeness. Thank you much for your support, and if you have requests or questions, ask away!

Did you mean a version where Social need *does* decay? This mod in its current state has a Social Decay of 0, plus a constant +5 to Social Need as a 'just in case'. Tell me what you're thinking and I will run with it! :D
