552 Thanks  Thanks     101 Favourited
UPDATED to v3.5 on June 01, 2021! I rebalanced all of the buffs so that they all work better together and as I intended them to. If you have any other suggestions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment or PM me. I love to hear from you!

Now includes two versions: One for those WITH the Cats & Dogs EP and one version for those WITHOUT the Cats & Dogs EP. DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL ONLY ONE VERSION OF THE TRAIT! This is to correct a phantom buff that was appearing for those that didn't have the EP with the old version of the trait.

Agoraphobia is (according to the dictionary): An anxiety disorder characterized by an extreme or irrational fear of entering open or crowded places, of leaving one?s own home, or of being in places from which escape is difficult. I have this disorder and I made it my mission to create a custom trait so my Sim could also have this disorder for a more personalized experience.

Here are the features currently included in the trait mod:
  • Random Panic Attacks
  • Random Social Anxiety Attacks
  • Feels Happy When at Home
  • Feels Stressed When Away from Home
  • Feels Stressed When Around Strangers
  • Feels Happier When with a Friend
  • Feels Happier When with a Support Animal (If you have Cats & Dogs EP. NOT required!!)
  • Social Interactions May Cause Embarrassment
  • Low Social Need Decay
  • Now Includes Related Whims!

Features I hope to include in the future:
  • I'm not sure....
  • (I'm open to suggestions!)

Here are some of the buffs you can expect with this mod:
Alone in the Crowd (Scared +6) Your Sim is feeling terrified by being around one too many strangers at once. (Lasts as long as your Sim is around strangers.)
Friendly Support (Happy +2) Thanks to having a friend nearby, Your Sim feels so much more secure. (Lasts as long as you have at least one friend nearby.)
Support Animal (Happy +2) Your Sim always feels better when their emotional support animal is around. (*Requires Cats & Dogs Pack for this buff but the pack is not required for this overall trait mod.) (Lasts as long as you have a friendly owned cat or dog nearby.)
Panic Attack (Scared +8) Your Sim is having a panic attack just thinking about possible social interactions. (Randomly happens for 2 hours.)
Social Anxiety (Embarrassed +4) Your Sim is being plagued by a random bout of social anxiety. (Randomly happens for 4 hours.)
Happy at Home (Happy +2) Your Sim feels so happy to be safe in their home. (Constant buff as long as your Sim is on their home lot.)
Out of Comfort Zone (Uncomfortable +6) Your Sim feels way outside of their comfort zone and wants to go back home as soon as possible. (Constant buff as long as your Sim is on any lot that is NOT their home lot.)
Socially Awkward (Embarrassed +2) Sims with agoraphobia have difficulty in social situations to where even the most innocent of conversations can become embarrassing and uncomfortable. (Happens during some types of conversations with both strangers and friends. Lasts for 2 hours.)

If you have any suggestions on how this trait could be improved, please feel free to send me a message or leave a comment. Thank you.

Conflicts: None known.

Overrides: None.

Built and tested with game version 1.75 with all expansion and stuff packs.

Additional Credits:
I created this trait mod using the Mod Constructor v4 by Zerbu with help from Kutto and others on Zerbu's Discord channel. I also utilized the Sims 4 Studio for some extra editing. Thank you to all!
