-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I love playing a want-based game and, with the popularity of The Personality Mod, I wanted to be able to work more with custom wants and try and add some new direction to them in a series of manageable mods. Additionally, I want other modders to be able to make use of these wants for their own mods. So this is the Custom Wants Mod!

What Does It Do?
The wants in this mod have been split off from The Personality Mod and now have their own package. This mod now will have new wants added to it often to fit in with some of my other mods.
The wants on their own won’t do anything in game; you need mods that add custom whimsets using these wants installed for them to show up. This mod literally just contains custom wants; it’s whimsets that cause the wants to show. Mods that use these wants in their whimsets include:



The Technical Details
The mod is Base Game Compatible. The files are separated into different packages for each pack, so just delete the ones for the packs you don't have.
DO NOT delete the Strings or Icons packages.

Translations
The mod currently supports the following translations: (Translations need to redone, huge apologies to the translators!)
English (Me)
Chinese (GreenOnionC)
Danish (Josie)
Dutch (Britt Boons)
French (Kimikosoma)
German (Hendrik McSims)
Italian (Isy)
Polish (webkinzfrog) (Full translation available by Daisy1728. Download HERE)
Portuguese (Viniciusvill)(Maluk)
Russian (Origamika Group, Joliebean)
Spanish (Sabrina Garcia)

Known Issues
No known issues at this time.

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

For Modders
If you’re here because another mod has guided you over here, you can skip this section.
If you’re interested in using these wants in your mod, then this is the section for you!

Inside this mod, you’ll find all the wants I’ve created. I’m more than happy for you to reference these wants inside your own custom whimsets. If you do use them, please Do Not include this package: instead, link back to this page and let your downloaders know they’ll need this package for the new wants to show up. Feel free to let me know you've referenced them; I'd love to know and I can include your mod in the list above!
I have included a ForModders zip file which contains all the references to the Wants for you to use in your whimsets.

Final Note
I want to give thanks to everyone in the community for their support and encouragement for the creation of these mods. I especially want to thank ChippedSim, Marco, Midiar and chingyu1023 for their help and assistance as I’ve been creating the new whims and for their ideas and suggestions.
All feedback is welcome, so please don’t be afraid to drop a comment. Any issues, please let me know and I’ll do my best to solve them!

Credits
Midiar and chingyu1023 for the suggestion of splitting this into a separate mod to allow other modders to make use of the whims with ease.
ChippedSim for helping me troubleshoot with tuning errors.
Marco for helping getting targeted whims to work!
Rex for being a star and helping me with the conversion from whims to Wants! Also for creating the shiny new script and for creating some of the new Wants and generously letting me include them in this mod!

I'm sorry bother! But for some reason no wants are showing up for me I installed the personality mod and the hobby mod. I set my sim as a fortune sim and travel as a hobby. I gained skill level 3 in fitness and let the game run for 1 sim day, but no wants are showing. Did i miss something that I need to do to activate the wants?

(I also have wants/fears in the game settings)

EDIT: NVM, there was another mod i used that caused the issue. It has been fixed now.

For example, I have a pleasure sim who dislikes dancing, so he can't get rid of that want without making himself miserable. lol (or drinking a potion)


Yes, of course! I normally do but I must have missed that one, thank you! I'll get that updated as soon as possible!

Hi, can you tell me which mod was in conflict with this one? The wants don't show for me too, but I can't figure out which to delete..

It's likely to be any mod that edits the whimsets in any way. Do you have bienchien's Whim Overhaul, by any chance? I believe that can remove the existing Wants.

I don't. I know that one is still broken - maybe it's some of the aspirations? I'll keep looking, already tired of these generic base game ones.. Thanks for your reply!

Edit: I've removed all mods and just used this one - still no new want. Am I missing something obvious?

Do you have The Personality Mod or The Hobby Mod installed?
As I mention in the main post, this mod on its own doesn't do anything; it needs other mods to load the Wants in the whimsets.
I have an overhaul planned that will use these mods but it's still in development at the moment

I have both - should I see custom moodlets? Because they also don't show for me.. oh well, maybe there's a conflict with Polish version of the game? I'll keep experimenting. Thanks for your work, can't wait for the overhaul!

No, you won't see moodlets but you should be seeing custom Wants. Do the traits appear in the Reward Store for The Hobby Mod and The Personality Mod? If not, you might need to redownload XML Injector. That controls the traits showing up in the reward store and if your Sim has one of those traits, you'll start seeing custom Wants

Hi. Thank you for your mods. I enjoy using them. On the last update for this mod, I got an exception(Better Exceptions report) about invalid tunings on the Base Game and City Living packages. I wanted to let you know.

So This No Longer Needs The Personality Mod? This Custom Wants Mod Can Be Used On It's Own?

Custom Wants contains just the Wants; but Wants need a whimset (or wantset) in order to show in game. Mods like The Personality Mod, The Hobby Mod and Hopes & Fears all have the whimsets these Wants can be found in.
If you're just wanting new Wants in game, it'll be Hopes & Fears you'll want: https://modthesims.info/d/670360/th...-fears-mod.html
I hope that helps!

Yes, it is! These are all brand new custom wants and don't override anything.
