New Mods and Mod Updates
A full list of all of my most up-to-date mods can be found on my profile. If you would like to help support the continued development of my mods, please consider contributing to my Patreon, where I occasionally post progress updates and exclusive access to beta versions of my newer mods. All my mods on MTS will continue to receive updates and support.

Recent Updates

Update 3/16/21
  • Adjusted the script to avoid a conflict with mods which remove the Homesick buff from all Sims
  • Added a failsafe so that failure moodlets will not be applied to Sims who had their hobby trait removed

Update 1/21/21
  • Technophobes now feel Scared instead of Tense when around robots​.
  • Technophobes now get a Happy moodlet during power outages from the Power Outages mod by flerb
  • Updated certain moodlets to show up as True Happy in the Meaningful Stories mod by roburky
  • Updated the French translation from Kimikosoma​

This trait pack adds a total of eight new traits (six Hobby traits and two others) most of which require your Sim to regularly participate in their favorite pastime or else risk becoming stressed out. Each trait comes with new moodlets, social interactions with custom loots and speech bubbles, and whim sets.

- Artisan
These Sims enjoy making things by hand, and will become Happy when woodworking, making flower arrangements, or baking.

- Competitive
These Sims love to take part in games of skill. They get powerful moodlets from winning or losing a game, and may become Bored if they don’t take part in competitions for too long. (Social Trait)

- Horticulturist
These Sims love to work in their garden and harvest the fruits of their labor.

- Movie Buff
These Sims love to watch movies and talk about them.

- Scribe
These Sims love to write books, blog posts, and journal entries.

- Technophobe
These Sims are old-fashioned and get stressed out by any new technology with more than two buttons. They’re acutely aware of the ever-present and looming threat of robot overlords. (Lifestyle Trait)

- Tinker
These Sims love to know what makes things tick. They love doing upgrades, working on robots, and programming.

- Worldly
These Sims love to experience culture. They like to travel to Vacation Worlds and attend City Festivals.

Add as many or as few traits to your mod folder as desired. Keep all package files and script files paired together in order for the social interactions to work properly. Since this is a script mod, these traits can only be placed one folder deep.

Most traits only require the base game, but certain ones will need specific packs to be useful. Competitive uses a lot of assets from Get Together and City Living. Movie Buff explicitly requires Movie Hangout Stuff.

The Technophobe trait uses the following XMLs to establish proper trait conflicts in CAS:

All other traits do not have any conflicts.
