  • v1.1.0: Target text updates, new moodlets, Talk about Fears (Scared), Ask to be Held (Scared), Tell Corny Joke (Playful), Reveal Focused Insight (Focused), Ask to Buy Them a Drink (Flirty), Ask Them to Dance (Flirty), Boast about Job (Confident), Boost Confidence (Confident), Ask for Help Calming Down (Angry)

This mod adds 60+ new social interactions which are dependent on your Sim's emotional state.

As this is a script mod, you must enable script mods in your game options, and both files must be nested no more than one folder level inside your Mods folder. This mod should not conflict with any other mods, as it only adds *new* tunings.

All new social interactions are contained in new category pie menus, not within the traditional categories, for ease of finding. Most interactions are also available autonomously, so that you see a bit more flavor from your Sim's interactions whether you're actively playing them or not - though I've limited ones that have significant impact to not be performed autonomously. Most interactions are available to Child and older Sims, but some are limited to other age groups as appropriate.

Wow, this looks totally fabulous!

From the pictures, it looks to me as if the interactions you've created are well thought out, well written, and make good sense. These should really enrich the game!

Making such a huge mod must have been a lot of work, and I thank you for going to all that trouble to make a bunch of strangers happy. :-)

Hello, lovely mod but I have a question in regards to it.

I watched a video that said all the interactions were not autonomous, is this true?

Thank you for answering and happy simming!

Hi Tixxy - Per the description, "Many interactions are also available autonomously, so that you see a bit more flavor from your Sim's interactions whether you're actively playing them or not - though I've limited ones that have significant impact to not be performed autonomously." Most are autonomous, its just things like arguing, insults, lifestyle boosts etc that aren't.

This is amazing! Like others have asked, would it be possible to maybe get a version with full autonomy as well for those who like that playstyle?

Also, do you maybe have any plans on adding interractions for the new "Scared" emotion as well? Maybe sims could talk about their fear or what made they scared, etc.

Anyways, thank you so much for sharing your work! =]
