Latest Update
  • Now fully compatible with the Cottage Living expansion pack and the latest patch, game version 1.77.131.x
  • Now includes the Nature Conservationalist trait from the Cottage Living expansion pack.
  • Now includes the Fast & Fastidious trait from the Bust the Dust kit.
  • Now includes the Filth Dweller trait from the Bust the Dust kit.

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 1.77.131.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:

Sorry to hear that. It's likely only an issue with your mod setup. Make sure you don't have any other similar mods installed. Good luck!

I am using the Quarter version. There are two traits missing from the list that are normally given only after completing the tutorial: Overachiever and Career Mind (or Career Minded).

Can these two be added?

Hi! Nifty Knitting added a new reward trait - "Sacred Knitting Knowledge." I'll be updating the mod shortly to include this. In the meantime, there should be no issues using version 8 with either Nifty Knitting or the latest free patch.

Hey Chaavik! Nice to see you. I'll look into whether they're easy-adds or not.

Update: As it was a reward trait like the other ones I added to this mod, it was easy to add in Over-Achiever. I will keep Career-Minded in mind if I ever add anything other than reward traits.

Hi! Version 9 of this mod is now available.

I've added in the new Nifty Knitting aspiration reward trait Secret Knitting Knowledge. And as an added bonus, on request from @Chaavik, I have also added the Over-Achiever reward trait from the base game Tutorial.

Enjoy and happy Simming!

Thank you so much for this mod. Would it be possible to also add the bonus traits you get from the Aspirations as well for example the Essence of Flavor, Muser etc.

Do you think you could make a "cheap reward store" mod without the aspiration trait included in the store? I love this mod but I only use it for that purpose and don't need the extra reward traits

Hi all! No updates are needed for this mod with the latest free patch. But it seems that Journey to Batuu game pack contains a few new aspiration reward traits, so I will update it as soon as I can once the game pack is released. Thanks in the meantime for your patience.

Hi! That sounds pretty straight-forward, so I will consider it. Have a look at the prices I list in the mod description - would you prefer half or quarter price? No promises but I'll think about it.

Hey all! I've got Journey to Batuu and I am already playtesting version 10 of this mod. So it should be out soon! Looks like 3 new reward traits... and maybe something else too...

Thanks for replying @SmilingCookie! I will look into it, but I don't want to make any promises for version 10, as I'm trying to get that out as soon as I can.

Version 10 Available, Supporting Journey to Batuu.
Hi! Version 10 of this mod is now available.

I've added in the new Journey to Batuu aspiration reward traits Heroic Presence, Sleight of Hand, and Supreme Authority. And as an added bonus, I've also added in the aspiration reward "A Gift of Credits" which provides you with 1,000 credits upon purchase. Now you can convert your hard-earned satisfaction points to Credits!

Enjoy and happy Simming!
