Thanks for fixing another major game issue as I often had to change the lifetime wants anyways when the one assigned just didn't make any sense and would've been impossible when they're the first couple in a brand new town.

This looks awesome but I play on Super Collection for Mac so I don't mind testing it out. I also have Squinge's New Lifetime Wants (Uni) for EP6. This is safe to have as I have replaced my WantsTuning right?

Hey @trambling101
Cool, let me know if it errors out, I might be able to find a solution. And yes, you can use it with Squinge's mod. WantTuning is for wants to show up in game and doesn't concern this chooser directly, so don't worry about it.

Thank you for kind words, everyone!

Thank you for making this, I have always wondered why every other mod would make us cycle through, instead of just showing each ltw. Super cool mod, thanks for making this!

This is amazing, will be a time saver! I'm extremely excited for your new LTWs!!! However, would it be possible to make a version that doesn't alter the prerequisites? I am really enjoying using Rio's edit of Greater LTW Variety & Sanity (Career LTWs unlocked for all aspirations). Would it just not work if that mod overwrote this one? Thanks

@BellaDovah, if any LTW-prerequisites-altering mod overrides the chooser, it won't work, because it's those same resources that I use to make it work. So, nope, not a chance What I could do is make a version that removes aspiration requirements from career lifetime wants. What about interests and other things?
I personally find that differences based on aspirations, personality, etc. is what makes sims unique. If anyone can have anything, they're kind of all the same. This is why I added more restrictions, not less. Also, with 90+ LTWs it's nice to narrow down the list for a specific sim, but maybe you won't feel that way. Anyway, I'm open to making another version, since I give you no choice but to remove all those other prerequisites-altering mods you may have gotten used to.

@TadOlson, thanks, I forgot to link it.

Ok thanks so much for the information, that's totally understandable. The reason I liked Rio's edit is because it did introduce lots of different restrictions, it just untied them from aspirations but introduced factors such as personality and interests which is really cool. Tbh I think I could just use the unrestricted Menu but since I keep a close eye on their personality and interests anyway I could probably make a good decision on what I think they 'should' be limited to without actually needing any forced limitations. So yeah thanks for including an option that ignores all restrictions
