Change Log:

August 8th 2022 ~ Version
~ Fixed a few typos.
~ Added French translation
August 2nd 2022 ~ Version 2.1.2
~ Fixed a few wants that were throwing up errors, mostly where the wants were mistakenly referencing themselves. These should be fixed but don't hesitate to let me know if you experience any further issues.
~ Added Portuguese translation.
July 31st 2022 ~ Version 2.1.1 ~ Updated a few Wants from the Island Living package that were mistakenly tagged as Reactionary. These are now Short Term Wants.
~ Updated file name for Werewolves package.
July 30th 2022 ~ Version 2.1
~ Updated for compatibility with the new Wants system. All the whims have been converted to Wants. PLEASE DELETE THE OLD VERSION! This is important because the new files will NOT override the old ones. So delete any version you have prior to this one.
~ All the Wants now produce an appropriate moodlet and will contribute towards your Sim’s fullfillment.
~ I made a lot of changes to the strings, so translations will need to be done from scratch. Really sorry to the translators but this was far simpler.
June 21st 2022 ~ Fixed an issue with the 'Fill Birdfeeder', 'Watch Birds', 'Visit Sixam' and 'Moongaze' whims that prevented them from working. They should now work fine!
June 19th 2022 ~ 54 new whims added to support the upcoming update of The Hobby Mod.
~ Restructured the mod so the whims are now separated into packages based on Pack. So simply delete the files for packs you don't have. So you need to delete the old version of the mod before installing this!
April 19th 2022 ~ Updated to fix a typo in the Chat With Rabbit whim.
April 18th 2022 ~
  • Big update today! The first big change is that the mod is now split into 3 packages. I've separated the icons for the whims into their own package. You do need to have all 3 installed for the whims to work as intended.
  • Many of the whims have now been given new icons! This also helps make more of them base-game compatible, since they no longer reference in-game icons. All icons are Maxis Match and are extracted from game files.
  • Added Chinese (Simplified) strings. (Not translated). I imagine these were added in a recent update to the game so the mod now has compatibility with it.
  • All custom whims have been updated to include trait whitelists/blacklists to help fine-tune them. This helps them appear for appropriate personalities.
  • The biggest update of all however is the addition of 150 new whims.
~ December 21st 2021 ~ Fixed an issue with the "Invite Family Over" whim. Thanks Joliebean!

  • The biggest update is that the mod has been split into 2 packages. The first contains the whims as normal. The second contains the custom whimsets I’ve created; you’ll need this if you want whims such as “Ask (SimName) to Move In” etc. This is to make it easier for me to add new whimsets, especially in the future. It’s advisable to have both packages installed.
  • New Whims


I love playing a want-based game and, with the popularity of The Personality Mod, I wanted to be able to work more with custom wants and try and add some new direction to them in a series of manageable mods. Additionally, I want other modders to be able to make use of these wants for their own mods. So this is the Custom Wants Mod!

What Does It Do?
The wants in this mod have been split off from The Personality Mod and now have their own package. This mod now will have new wants added to it often to fit in with some of my other mods.
The wants on their own won’t do anything in game; you need mods that add custom whimsets using these wants installed for them to show up. This mod literally just contains custom wants; it’s whimsets that cause the wants to show. Mods that use these wants in their whimsets include:

The Technical Details
The mod is Base Game Compatible. The files are separated into different packages for each pack, so just delete the ones for the packs you don't have.
DO NOT delete the Strings or Icons packages.

The mod currently supports the following translations: (Translations need to redone, huge apologies to the translators!)
English (Me)
Chinese (GreenOnionC)
Danish (Josie)
Dutch (Britt Boons)
French (Kimikosoma)
German (Hendrik McSims)
Italian (Isy)
Polish (webkinzfrog)
Portuguese (Viniciusvill)(Maluk)
Russian (Origamika Group, Joliebean)
Spanish (Sabrina Garcia)

Known Issues
No known issues at this time.

This mod doesn’t conflict with any other mods at this time.

For Modders
If you’re here because another mod has guided you over here, you can skip this section.
If you’re interested in using these wants in your mod, then this is the section for you!

Inside this mod, you’ll find all the wants I’ve created. I’m more than happy for you to reference these wants inside your own custom whimsets. If you do use them, please Do Not include this package: instead, link back to this page and let your downloaders know they’ll need this package for the new wants to show up. Feel free to let me know you've referenced them; I'd love to know and I can include your mod in the list above!
I have included a ForModders zip file which contains all the references to the Wants for you to use in your whimsets.

Final Note
I want to give thanks to everyone in the community for their support and encouragement for the creation of these mods. I especially want to thank ChippedSim, Marco, Midiar and chingyu1023 for their help and assistance as I’ve been creating the new whims and for their ideas and suggestions.
All feedback is welcome, so please don’t be afraid to drop a comment. Any issues, please let me know and I’ll do my best to solve them!

Midiar and chingyu1023 for the suggestion of splitting this into a separate mod to allow other modders to make use of the whims with ease.
ChippedSim for helping me troubleshoot with tuning errors.
Marco for helping getting targeted whims to work!
Rex for being a star and helping me with the conversion from whims to Wants!
