These mods are updated for the February 3rd patch. Remove the earlier file from the Mods folder when using a new one.

These are updated to V3 for the Dec. 16th patch.

Mods are updated to V2 for the October 1 patch.

This mod reduces the points cost for purchasing all of the Aspiration Rewards.

The cheap potions are set at 50 points, there are 3 potions set at 100, and the Vial Of Life at 150.

The Trait Rewards now cost 200 for the rewards previously costing from 1000 to 2000 points, and the ones from 2500 to 4000 points now cost 300.

A new version has been added which cuts the cost of the Rewards in vanillagame in half. Use one or the other of these mods.



To install this mod unzip the file and place the .package file in the Mods folder (or a subfolder).
After the Oct.1st update, these two steps below are no longer required for the game to read XML normally in a .package file.

This mod uses the XML named whims.whims.tracker.

This was SO SO NEEDED!!! I was so disappointed with how little aspiration points they get from completing big things. Though I would love a version of this that is just half the cost instead of so super cheap.

But still, so awesome, thank you so so much for this!! <3

Nice work, Shimrod! I would like to second the request for a 50% version, if and when you have the time.

Thanks so much. I agree with the poster above that the cost of the rewards was out of proportion with the amount of points accumulated in the game.

Thanks for this. Is this ok to use with other mods we have to change the cfg for? And does this only work with the newer patch? I'm noticing newer mods don't work for me and I don't have the newest patch yet 😞

It is only incompatible with another mod if the mod specifically uses the Whims.whims.tracker XML. This is made on the newest patch yes, I will always be on the newest patch level immediately. I'm actually coming to the conclusion that anyone not on the newest patch cannot use XML tuning mods. I'm not talking about Scripting mods or other CC, XML specifically.

This workaround with the unpackedmod folder and the Resource.cfg change was instituted with the newest patch I think, because the game would not read XML inside of a .package. So for anyone on an earlier patch level it's possible that XML cannot be read inside of a .package file at all, regardless.

I would love that as well. I like sims to work for their rewards, but the way the game was designed, it is almost impossible to gain many of these rewards unless you let them live forever.

Here you'll find more downloads by me; GoddessByline's SimPage and N99

Thanks so much Shimrod! You're awesome! I noticed too many of the rewards were too expensive. I do have aging turned off for now in my game, but, still I don't want to spend what seems like forever getting these really expensive rewards.

Oh thank you so much! My original sim is now an elder and even after doing a ton of her whims and stuff she has no where near the amount of points needed to get the top rewards. This is a huge life saver. Now if only they all could be free.
