Update!

The mod should now be fixed for Discover University.

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, but it left a space--with its lack of CAS traits--for this kind of mod to utilize its Wellness-related features.

To distinguish this mod from other Wellness-related custom traits, I created a Maxis Match trait. No 2x skill boosts, no changed default emotion states, no +6 positive moodlets. Those are fun, but they don't fit every playstyle, like mine. The Well-Aligned trait supplements the Wellness Skill and Spa venue gameplay without being OP. It's not the flashiest, but it aligns with EAxis's vision.

Features

Two New Moodlets: Incentizes 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:
  • V1.10b: Fixed for Discover University patch.
  • 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!

  • 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!
