Latest Update
  • Now fully compatible with the Paranormal stuff pack and the latest patch, game version 1.70.84.x
  • Now includes the Paranormal Investigator License from the Paranormal stuff pack.
  • Now includes the Sacred Candles from the Paranormal stuff pack.
  • Now includes the Brave trait from the latest patch.

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 1.70.84.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:
whims.whims_tracker_03B33DDF_00000000_CEE9A466EBFC13D1.xml

As you can see, there's no other reports of issues and I'm not having any. So it's probably another mod in your mods folder. I wish you luck in fixing it.


Ok, this is weird

I Uninstalled all mods and reinstalled them half at a time in order to use the 50/50 method to uncover which was causing the issue and... I ended up having my full roster of mods installed AND the Expanded Reward Store functioning!
No changes made

Flabbergasted

Well: it works, that's all that matters

I'm really pleased you got everything working again! Yes it is weird, maybe it was a cache file or something. Anyhow, thanks for reporting back.

In other news: I'm sure this will need updating for Discover University and I'm all set to update it fast.

Hello! V7 of this mod is now available.

I've added in the new Discover University aspiration reward trait Higher Education.

(Sorry, was busy making these videos: The Foxbury Chancellery - Discover University Speed Build, Gameplay Deep Dive - Literally Discovering University.)

Enjoy and happy Simming!

Note that it is highly likely that Tiny Living stuff pack will not affect this mod at all.

No, I only need to update it when it is affected by something like a new reward or aspiration trait. There was none in that patch. They typically only come in Game or Expansion packs.

Frimlin, on the dropdown box I can choose between 'Potions' and... I forget what it is, Traits I think? Could you make another dropdown box and put your expanded rewards under it, so I can seperate the career rewards from the base game rewards?

There is a reward that I can't see on the list: The Money Tree reward. I didn't even know it existed until I saw it on a video. I was like "Wait a minute...I have never seen that on my aspiration reward list..." It comes with Seasons.

EDIT: Ignore me completely. The trait is indeed there. You just have to set it to "All" in the filter instead of "Traits" or "Potions". Just "All" and a few traits that I haven't seen before will appear.

@Darkrai, I have long considered adding in other non-aspiration reward traits. It is something that I might do but at the moment the mod is very easy to maintain and I'm a bit wary of making it more complicated. However, there is some hope, but it might be a very long time in coming.


please do it or give the information on how to add them manually for example like
<U>
<T n="key">103265</T>
<U n="value">
<E n="award_type">TRAIT</E>
<T n="cost">500</T>
</U>
? how to find key numbers?

Looking forward to the update! My sims need more things to spend their aspiration points on. Could you, by any chance, provide an explanation for how to add traits to the reward store? I would like to add some custom traits that I feel would go better there.
