The Knowledge aspiration from The Sims 2 is back! Thanks to Zerbu's awesome Mod Constructor I have recreated the Knowledge aspiration.

The original aspiration had 6 levels, but due to limitations the first level was cut and the last became the reward trait. When creating each level I pulled from the name and the original aspiration's wants.

The aspiration will give your Sim whims; though none of them are new whims. Basic things, like Read a Book, Play Chess, Level up a Skill, etc.

Smarty Pants:

*Finish Reading 3 Books
*Play 5 Games of Chess
*Achieve Level 3 in Any Skill
*Own a Microscope or Telescope

Free Thinker:

*Achieve Level 5 Handiness Skill
*Achieve Level 5 Logic Skill
*Achieve Level 3 Video Gaming Skill
*Reach Level 3 of Any Career

Impressive Intellect:

*Achieve Level 5 in 5 Skills
*Achieve Level 5 Rocket Science Skill
*Achieve Level 5 Programming Skill
*Own a Rocket Ship

Savant Supreme:

*Achieve Level 10 in 5 Mental Skills
*Achieve Level 10 in Logic
*Achieve Level 10 in Programming
*Achieve Level 10 in Rocket Science

Senior Sage Trait:

This trait gives boosts in every skill by 1.25, but Mental Skills get an x2 boost on top of that. Additionally, the Veterinarian skills get it's own x2 boost. (did you know the Veterinarian skill is not considered a mental skill? why? being focused even boosts it, but it lacks the tag of a mental skill.) Boosts are also given for Vampire and Spellcaster XP.

The trait boosts the following careers: Scientist, Engineer, Civil Designer, Conservationist, Doctor, Tech Guru, Freelance Programmer, Politics, Law, Business, Education, Salaryperson, Astronaut, Military, Criminal, Secret Agent, Detective, E-Sports, Writer, Freelance Crafter, Paranormal Investigator

University is also boosted, along with High School if you manage to complete the aspiration before aging up. I even added a Grade School boost if the trait is cheated onto a Child.

Additionally, the trait will boost the Retail, Fast Food, and Barista careers by 5, however Sims will have a chance of getting a tense buff called "Wasted Brain Power" from these careers. This buff will slow down learning any skills.

While browsing the web on a computer or phone, Sims may get the "Hmm...An Interesting Problem" buff, it's a Focused buff that increases learning Mental skills. Sims may also randomly get the "A Massive Universe" buff which boosts Mental and Creative skills.

When using any Research option on a computer or on the Research Machine, a Sim may get the "Expanded Knowledge" buff which will make them Focused. But they may also get the "No Answers" buff which will make them Angry.

Sims with this trait will see their Fun and Social needs decay slower. The Sim's autonomy will focus on doing mental activities.

They also have access to a new social interaction called "Impart Knowledge", this will give a small amount of Logic or Mental skill to the target Sim. The Actor Sim has a 50% chance of getting a Confident buff called "Knowledge Imparted" when doing this. The Target Sim has a 50% chance of getting any of the following buffs: "Wait, What?" (dazed), "How Did I Not Know?" (embarrassed), and "Yes, I See" (focused). The "Yes, I See" buff has a higher chance of appearing than the others.

Since this is not an override, there shouldn't be conflicting with any mods.
