My last trait (Historian) seemed quite popular, so I thought I'd share another I made for my game. I LOVE this trait, not gonna lie. I always find "popular kid" traits tend toward trouble-making and sexuality. Those are awesome, but I also wanted something a bit different for my sims. Teenage dreams are the ultimate childhood sweethearts: wholesome, cheeky and dumb. Their whims are teenagery. They make relationships very easily, but struggle with mental pursuits like, y'know, school. They could best be described as lovably dopey.

Teenage dreams can be any gender; I tried to be a neutral as possible with pronouns. They are confident, charismatic and lazy. This trait has quite a few ~hidden buffs that affect skill gain and social stats, so it's a nice general trait to set a baseline for your character.

I have plans to (re)introduce a broadcaster buff that affects nearby teenagers - they gotta react to such a cool kid! - but this is still in beta-testing as I've been having a lot of issues on which sims should/should not be affected. So this is on hold for now, but if I get to a stable version I will update.

Tested for The Sims 4 v1.40.61. Base game compatible.

------

Description:
This teenager is a total dreamboat. They wander the school halls in a beautiful daze.

Availability:
Teen.

Social.
Core buff: Teenage Dream sims always have a +1 dazed buff.
Random buff: +2 confident buff for 4 hours. "Why Be Smart When You Can Be Pretty"



Whims:
  • Make out with (sim)
  • Flirt with (someone new)
  • Throw a party
  • Admire yourself in the mirror
  • Update social network status
  • Make out in the closet
  • Play Foosball
  • Level up in charisma skill
  • Adopt a dog
  • Write a guitar song
  • Splash someone in pool

Buffs:
  • +1.25 increase to friendship building
  • +1.5 increase to romance building
  • +1.25 general increase to social skill
  • +1.25 general decay to mental skill
  • +1.25 decay to social stat

  • +1 confident buff at high school. "Coolest Kid In Class"
  • +1 confident buff when browsing videos on sim.tv. "Hey, Check This Out"

Commodities:
  • These sims naturally love to hang out with their buds - and can tend toward laziness.
  • They have a higher than average charisma and athletic ability.
  • These teenage sims are best suited to the retail career. They have a poor work ethic - but are naturals at selling (twice as good as the average sim).
  • They have to work harder if they want good grades in high school as they find it x1.25 harder than their classmates. (#unfair)
