New Mods and Mod Updates
A full list of all of my most up-to-date mods can be found on my profile.

Recent Updates

This trait pack adds a set of nine new emotional traits which fill out the roster with traits associated with moods like Embarrassed and extreme versions of the old traits with some drawbacks. All of them are available for children and older, and add boosts to Character Values from Parenthood. No custom whim sets were added to these traits.

This is my first mod ever, so any bug reports and gameplay feedback are more than welcome!

- Calm
Occasionally boosts the Fine emotion, removing much of the risk and reward of changing emotions.

- Insecure
Occasionally boosts the Embarrassed emotion, and causes stress around new people and when doing public performances. Making friends can be difficult but very rewarding for these Sims!

- Oblivious
Occasionally boosts the Dazed emotion, and has trouble gaining skills.

- Restless
Occasionally boosts the Bored emotion, and requires more fun than other Sims. Can be the life of the party if they get going, though.

- Stoic
Extreme version of Calm, perpetual bonus to Fine unless something causes them to experience a negative emotion.

- Arrogant
Extreme version of Self-Assured, very Confident but may rub other Sims the wrong way. These Sims also get a small bonus to the Business, Politics, and Criminal careers.

- Daydreamer
Extreme version of Creative, very Inspired but may have trouble concentrating. Once they’ve organized their mind, they have powerful boosts to Creative skills.

- Perky
Extreme version of Cheerful, very Happy but can creep out most other Sims.

- Egghead
Extreme version of Genius, very Focused but have a one-track mind. If you strike while the iron is hot, they can earn powerful boosts to Mental skills.

Add the NewEmotionalTraits package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder or a subfolder in that directory. Then add as many of the trait package files as you desire to the same folder.

As far as gameplay is concerned, only the base game should be required. Cosmetically, several moodlets use icons from expansion and game packs, and missing these packs may cause moodlets to appear blank. If you encounter a grey llama icon, please report where you saw it and which packs you are missing.
