Latest Update
  • Now fully compatible with the refreshed Spa Day and the latest patch, game version 1.79.93.x
  • Now includes the Self-Care Expertise trait from the Spa Day game pack.
  • Now includes the Clear Perspective trait from the Spa Day game pack.
  • Now includes the Calming Aura trait from... wait for it... the Spa Day game pack.

Mod Description
This mod expands the Reward Store, offering you more options for spending your Satisfaction points. Currently this means all the Aspiration reward traits in the game so far are now available to buy! The catch? They're not cheap! Well, some are: the cheapest are 1500, the most expensive is 8000. Don't worry, you can still earn the reward traits the normal way by completing an Aspiration.

There are also Half Price, Quarter Price, and Free flavours available for download. Choose which one best suits your play style and enjoy! For more details including common questions and answers, please see below.

What expanded rewards are now available?

Questions and Answers

Why are some rewards so expensive?
  • Mostly because I felt they had a more powerful effect. Also, I set the prices of the Aspiration reward traits to roughly match the EA prices for default reward traits - which range from 500 to 10000 satisfaction points. If my prices are too high, try the Half Price, Quarter Price, or Free flavours.
Why are some rewards so cheap?
  • Usually because I felt they were weaker or their effect was more limited to a certain play style.
Would you consider changing the price of any of the rewards?
  • Yes I'd consider it. It's expected that I might change my mind on some of these and may change them. Also, if you have some feedback, you're welcome to let me know as long as you're polite.
Will you make a version with cheaper rewards?
  • I already have! There are Half Price, Quarter Price, and Free flavours available for download. Choose the one that best suits your play style.
Will you make a version with more expensive rewards?
  • I plan to add a double price version! I do not know when I will add this but I will definitely do it sometime.
Can you add this other trait or object to the mod?
  • It depends on the trait or object. Some - like the child Aspiration reward traits - were easy to include. Depending on which trait or object you mean, it may be simple, tricky, or impossible to add it. But I named the mod Expanded Rewards Store deliberately so I could potentially add other things too.

Compatibility & Conflicts
This mod is compatible with version 1.79.93.x

If new aspirations arrive in a new pack, it is most likely this mod will still function, but will not offer the new aspiration rewards. I will probably update it soon after a pack with new aspirations, so don't worry.

This mod will conflict with any mod altering the following tuning file:

Can I make a suggestion to include all the aspiration rewards in it?

Hi! It already does contain them all! There's only a couple missing that I know of - the two that came with the Bust the Dust kit. But I will be adding those, most likely with the next update for a pack.

I was talking about Quick Learner and Domestic traits... And most important: Top Notch Toddler and Scouting Aptitude. For Sims created as adults and kids who don't did it...

I love big families

Hi, this isn't working for me since patch 1.74.59.1030 (May 2021), which is a shame because I love it. Is it likely to be updated with the next pack to come out?

Have you singled it out as the real culprit? Works fine for me on the same version. Haven't installed the 27 May patch yet.

Hey all! Sorry I've been quiet - my work got really busy in a new and more senior role!

For those asking or wondering, this mod hasn't needed to be updated yet - it still works fine with the current version of the game.

But it will need to be for Cottage Living! At that time, I will add support for the Bust the Dust kit too.

Expect an update at or just after the release of Cottage Living. Until then, I wish you happiness and health.

I'd love a small description of each reward, it would help a lot with deciding on whether I'd want to add it to my game or not
