Sims with the Tinkerer trait tend to not only be curious about how things work but also have the skills to take them apart and put them back together to satisfy that curiosity. They gain the Handiness and Logic Skills faster than other Sims and love nothing more than repairing and even upgrading all their household appliances and electronics in their spare time.

  • Become Focused
  • Give Repair Tips to Someone
  • Level up in Handiness Skill
  • Repair an Object
  • Salvage Parts
  • Upgrade an Object

  • Level up in Logic Skill

  • +3 Uncomfortable Buff from Proximity to Repair Technician (NPC)

  • +3 Happy Buff (Active) from Tinkerer trait when fixing objects

  • Fun increases for duration of Active Buff
  • Hygiene decreases for duration of Active Buff

  • 50% chance of +2 Focused Buff from Tinkerer trait when indoors on own lot for 4 hours or more and Handiness Skill is Level 7 or higher (lasts for 4 hours)

  • Increases Handiness Skill 1.5x faster
  • Increases Logic Skill 1.5x faster
  • Increases Astronaut Career Performance 1.25x faster
  • Increases Doctor Career Performance 1.25x faster
  • Increases Scientist Career Performance 1.25x faster

  • Handiness Skill (2)
  • Logic Skill (2)

See the pictures for more information, and feel free to let me know if something seems wrong or is difficult to understand--or even if you simply like the mod and want to say thanks. After the wonderful response I got for posting the Gardener trait, I plan to continue creating useful and realistic traits for myself and sharing them with all of you
