Compatible with Patch 1.91

Change Log:

~ 1st September 2022 Version 1.2.2
~ Updated Russian translation.
~ Removed Career wants from Whimsets.
~ August 26th 2022 ~
  • Removed the reactionary Dance Want from the Pleasure Sim trait. This was irritating beyond belief.
  • Updated all the whimsets for compatibility with my upcoming Hopes & Fears mod.
~ July 30th 2022 ~ Updated for compatibility with the new Wants. Please redownload and delete ANY old version of this mod. Also make sure you have the latest update of the XML Injector.
~ April 18th 2022 ~ New Whims Added
~ December 18th 2021 ~
  • Removed the “Buy…” whims from the traits. Even with weights changed, these were still overpowering a bit so until I tweak those whims themselves, I’m removing them from the mod. Don't worry: they'll be back but much improved next time!
  • Added an Addon package for three new traits: Grilled Cheese Sim, Creativity Sim and Power Sim.
  • New Whims Added (Requires Custom Whims Mod)
~ June 10th 2021 ~ Multiple updates today!
  • The Custom Whims and The Personality Mod are now split into separate downloads. The Personality Mod adds the traits to the reward store but the Custom whims are now separate. If you do not install the Custom Whims package, you will not see my Custom-made whims.
  • Frank’s Pack Test Mod is no longer required. The code wasn’t working properly and it turns out Whims won’t support it. The mod is still safe to use even if you don’t have all the packs listed.
  • Fixed the ‘Own A Business’ whim so purchasing a business from the computer also completes the whim.
  • Updated the ‘Become A Spellcaster’ whim because it didn’t seem to complete consistently. Now it should.
  • Updated the ‘Have Baby’ whim so it should complete, regardless of where the birth takes place.
  • Fixed the Public Woohoo whim so it should actually complete all the time. Thanks everyone for your feedback with this one!
  • Fixed a series of small tuning errors. While these didn't stop the mod from working, they were irritating me. Thank you ChippedSim for your assistance with locating and fixing these!
  • Updated Russian translation.

The Personality Mod is the first larger mod I've made for The Sims 4.

You Will Need:
  • Scumbumbo's XML Injector ~ This makes the traits show up in the reward store. Don’t worry; the XML Injector doesn’t add anything to your game, it just allows this mod to work as intended. You need at least Version 3 for the traits to show up.
  • The Custom Wants Mod (also by Me) ~ This is a loader mod for all my custom wants, so if you want my new custom-made wantss, you'll need to download this too.
What Does It Do?
The Personality Mod adds 6 reward traits to the Reward Store. Each of these traits are inspired by the six Aspirations from Sims 2: Family, Fortune, Knowledge, Pleasure, Popularity and Romance. Each trait costs 0 Satisfaction Points, so you can add the traits to newly created sims, straight out of Create-A-Sim.

Each trait has it's own set of Whims and those whims are directly inspired by the appropriate Wants from Sims 2. Because of this, the reward traits act like a base personality and influence the whims your Sim puts in.
For example, a Fortune Sim may wish to own their own business; a Family Sim may want to have a baby or adopt a dog; A Knowledge Sim will be curious about the supernatural etc.

The Aspiration Addon Package
With the update on 18th December 2021, I added a separate addon package contain three new traits: Grilled Cheese, Power and Creativity, due to popular request. These are NOT essential but more an optional extra, should you want them.

The Whims
While there were some excellent whims available to suit each trait, I felt like many were missing. As a result, I set about creating my own. This mod contains around 40 new whims, each associated with the six reward traits. Among those whims are several whims for individual careers. Each of those whims will only turn up in a Sim has certain traits or skills, so they won't be random.

Once again, the new whims are based on Wants from Sims 2 and should line up fairly nicely. 
The exact whims for each trait are as follows:



The Technical Details
The Custom Whims are now in a separate file and can be downloaded here: The Custom Whims Mod
The Personality Mod package contains the reward traits and has attached to them all the Maxis whims relating to those traits. The additional Custom Whims package has all my custom-made whims inside it. Download both if you want the custom whims too.
This mod is Base Game Compatible.

Translations
The mod currently supports the following translations:
English (Me)
Chinese (GreenOnionC)
Danish (Josie)
Dutch (Britt Boons)
French (Kimikosoma)
German (Hendrik McSims)
Italian (Isy)
Polish (webkinzfrog)
Portuguese (Viniciousvill) (abronte)
Russian (Origamika Group, Joliebean)
Spanish (Sabrina Garcia)

Known Issues
~ The Grilled Cheese Sim trait currently has no Wants attached to it. This is because Maxis decided not to update any of the whims I’d used with this, so I’ll need to do it myself. Watch this space!

Conflicts
This mod doesn't conflict with any other mods at this time.

Planned Updates
In the future, I plan a few updates for the mod:
~ New whims: I want to include some new whims relating to later packs. Additionally, I want to include a few more to line up better with Sims 2; particularly for Pleasure, Family and Romance sims.
~ Interaction Menu: I have had a request for an interaction to add the traits to the Sim, so I will be working to include this in an update soon(ish).
~ An interaction to allow Sims to discover another Sim's personality.

I love this mod. Thank you for making it.


The whims mod shouldn't cause any lag, no. Whims are pretty small, so this shouldn't be an issue.
And the answer the second question, it's not needed but it's recommended for a more diverse experience. However you can play with The Personality Mod just fine without it!

Default Thank you!
I don't think I could play without this mod! If I could make one small suggestion, I've been playing with a Romance Sim for the past few weeks and I've noticed there aren't many whims that are similar to the wants of a Romance sim in the sims 2. Like for example, "Have 3 loves at once", "Make out with 3 sims", "WooHoo with 3 sims" or "Have an affair". This could be because I have two aspirations for this particular sim (I pretend one is the primary aspiration and another a secondary aspiration) or because I also have another whim mod installed. I have no idea if this kind of this could be implemented, but I thought I'd ask! Again, thank you so much for this mod!

Hi there and thank you!

I do love your suggestions. I had so far resisted putting those in because of the way Whims work; I don't think the counter works very well for whims but I'm certainly willing to experiment with them. Truthfully, I'd love these myself so I'll give them a try. The have an affair should be easier (hopefully) but I'll have to experiment.

Thank you for the suggestions; I always appreciate new ideas!
