This is my first upload to the site, and it adds a new trait: 'Pathetic', which you can find under the 'Emotional' tab in CAS. This trait affects Sims in many ways:

> Needs and Skills
- Sims will get electrocuted more easily
- Elder Sims will get exhausted more quickly
- Child and Teen Sims will take longer to do their homework
- Job performance will increase much more slowly
- Energy need will increase much more slowly
- Sims will be considerably worse at all skills; however, the rate at which the Sim learns these skills is not affected.


- Decoration moodlets are now blocked
- Hunger Need decays much faster
- Having high needs makes these sims Sad
- 'New Baby' Moodlet changed to a +2 Sad moodlet

> Emotion modifiers
- Negative emotions will be stronger (A bit less than double strength)
- Positive emotions will be weaker (A bit more than half strength)
-- However, no emotions are blocked entirely!

> Object modifiers
- Sims will make things dirty and break things faster
- They will also take longer to clean and fix them

> Buff replacements
- The Reaper's Friend serum does nothing for them; the moodlet is blocked
- These Sims will become Sad rather than Happy when spared from Death

> Trait buffs
- If the Sim sleeps for 4 hours or more, there's a chance they'll get a Sad moodlet (+4) for 20 hours

> Whims and Autonomy
- There are no special whim rolls associated with this trait, but autonomy is copied from the Gloomy Trait.

> Interaction effects
- If the Sim dies from anything other than Old Age, he/she will be resurrected automatically. Needs will be considerably lower than when a normal Sim is resurrected.
--This will tank your Sim's relationship with the Grim Reaper

--- On the flip side, when he/she finally does die of Old Age, he cannot be spared.

--- This mod is designed to take Vampires into account for this, and steps are taken to make sure Vampires with this trait don't immediately burn to death after being resurrected!

>Other changes
- With this mod installed, any Sim who is resurrected by the Grim Reaper will have whatever caused their death taken care of; this mostly comes down to removing the offending moodlets. Sims who are spared from Old Age will get a life extension.

This mod conflicts with any mod that modifies any of these files:

The trait does not conflict with any other trait, and is available to children and older Sims.
...sorry I couldn't come up with a better name for the trait...

NOTE: The death mechanic won't work if the Sim is in a very tight spot: The urn placement will fail resulting in a reset. Also there seems to be a bug with the cowplant death: the Reaper will act like the Sim is resurrected but he'll die anyway.

I added a death-immune flavor to this mod - with that flavor your sim CANNOT DIE AT ALL. Also it no longer conflicts with any of the grim reaper interactions (Which is why it's smaller). Pick only one!
