I've remade the Grow Up aspiration from The Sims 2. The original aspiration had 6 levels, but due to limitations the first level was cut and the last became the reward trait. When creating each level I pulled from the name and the original aspiration's wants. The final product was an aspiration that had each level function like a mini-version of the other child aspirations.

The aspiration does give some whims. They are basic things relating to itself, such as leveling up skills or playing with toys.

Bothersome Brat:
*Achieve Level 5 Motor Skill
*Perform 10 Mean or Mischievous Interactions
*Make It Across the Monkey Bars 3 Times

Typical Tyke:
*Achieve Level 5 Social Skill
*Meet 5 New Sims
*Make a Friend

Gifted Kid:
*Achieve Level 5 Creativity Skill
*Play with 3 Toys
*Use Activity Table or Draw on A Placemat (5 times)

Wonder Boy/Girl:
*Achieve Level 5 Metal Skill
*Finish Reading 3 Books
*Finish Homework 3 Times

Child Prodigy Trait:
This trait will give boosts in every skill and career except the Criminal career and Mischief skill. This trait will actually make the Sim do worse with Mischief and the Criminal career. If they're still in Grade School, they will get a large boost. High School also will get a nice boost. Finishing off the child skills shouldn't be too hard, either.

This trait triggers 4 buffs, Fond Memory, Fun Childhood, Happy Memory, and Remembering Youth. They only appear if the Sim is a teen or older and all grant +1 emotions, except the last.

The Fond Memory is a Happy buff will give a small boost in Logic, Fitness, Charisma, and all creative skills. The Fun Childhood buff is a Playful buff, but it doesn't give any special boosts. The Remembering Youth buff only appears for Elders, this buff gives +2 Happy, appears a bit more often, and gives a decent boost in Knitting, Gardening, Baking, and Cooking. The Happy Memory buff is actually a base game buff, but I thought it'd be a good addition to even things out a bit.



Conflicts:
Since this is not an override, there shouldn't be conflicting with any mods.

That is... well... it is showing up nice and all, but kinda stuck with a thing: when I direct the kid to play on monkey bars, the "monkey bars" count don't add up. It simply is stucked on 0/5 tho my kid has already played quite a few times on monkey bars.

The kid has to play on the monkey bars until they decide to get off. If you cancel the interaction, it doesn't count. This may be the problem you have. I released an update that allows cancelling it to still count.

This is so awesome. I wanted this for so long because the game lacks new aspirations. I hope you'll be doing some more also for the grown ups. Thank you so much for your effort!!!

(...)


2 things were missing in the translation. I've used google translate to translate them but just to double check.
  • Be Read to By An Adult => "Von einem Erwachsenen gelesen werden"
  • "{0.SimFirstName} hat {M0.seine}{F0.ihr} Traum vom Aufwachsen wahr werden lassen. \nTrait Earned: Gut Aufgewachsen" ("seine" replacing "his" and "ihr" replacing "her")

BTW if you want to translate any other mod just use this tool => http://modthesims.info/d/564576. Download it and extract it. After that open the tool, go to File > open from package and select the package of the mod you want to translate. The tool searches the STBL (string table files within the packages and allows you to edit the one of the desired language). The file produced when you save it's stored (i think on your desktop). Thats the file you compress and upload in the comments. If you want to test your translation you can use S4PE to import the ".stbl" file exported by the STBL Editor into the mod .package file (the one you download from here, mod the sims) and then save.

If everything is ok, the german translation is the one attached.
