    Thanks you so much for this info!

    You're very welcome. It gave me back my sanity, is all I can say. Now I can fulfill wants whenever the opportunity comes up without any worries my Sims are going to turn into Neurotics.

    Yup, actually when you mix it with daily tasks and aspiration goals plus extra interactions you want your Sims to do throughout the day it got a really really nice flow

    Anyone still using Wants & Fears in TS4?

    I am. But I wish they would tone it down a little. sometimes it feels like I have to give them a want every five minutes. Not to long ago I had a sim have a tantrum back to back to back. Seeing red, ok do this are you happy now. Yes, for five seconds. and that went on a couple of times. Really, kids are better behaved then the adults.

    Are there something new in the latest EP?

    I think there's 2 or 3 new Wants a at least 1 new Fear.
    Nowhere near as many as I'd hoped for, if I'm honest.

    If that's the case I must wonder what the point was of even adding this system. I mean why bother updating/adding this core personality system if it's just going to end up like whims, ignored and neglected.

    Same, I'm a wants-based player so I've always gravitated towards Sims 2. The only way I get enjoyment out of Sims 3 and 4 is with your mods :D

    I’m glad they implemented wants and fears feature but I think they need to do more with it and it needs to react based on personalities, not all sims should have the same wants and fears solely based on what happens in the game. I wish they would do an update, making the new features like wants and fears better. There’s a lot of things that they have put in the game that they could update and make a lot better, my wish is that they would dedicate a whole update to just fixing bugs without adding anything into the game or releasing new content. Then I wish once they. Clean it up, they would make the features that they have added like neighborhood stories, wants and fears, Impressions of other sims, it’s not that any of these new features are bad but they feel a bit unfinished and could be really great if they updated them to their full potential. What I wish they would stop doing is just releasing more content to fix that ultimately doesn’t get fixed or updated. I wish they would focus on bettering what’s already there before putting more in.

    My thoughts exactly. I actually had high hopes for the Wants (I know, I know, that was very silly of me :p ) but I'm actually quite gutted. Especially as they gave an incentive to complete wants - the fulfillment - and then don't bother adding more. For a lot of players, it's an integral part of their gameplay.

    The lack of attention to the whims/wants in Sims 4 is quite gutting.

    The two I found were related to the layoffs in careers: Work Hard and Quit Job (both due to Rumours of Layoffs). The third is the fear confrontation want; Have Effort Praised Over Time.
    The fear is Fear of Being Inferior.

    Any time! I was hoping they'd have added more, like children wanting to learn to ride their bikes etc. It's a shame but like you said; they haven't given up completely yet!

    I wish cowardly was a trait- like how it used to be in TS3. You may want some Sims to be fearful, but not others. For the same resons, Bravery should also be just a trait, not a reward IMO.

    It's been a year. I download a save and start playing with it, not realising fears were turned on for that save specifically. Start playing for a few weeks. Nothings that problematic, it's life as usual, have Sim stand outside at 9pm for an hour. Fear of dark, I then proceed to cheat in a fear-be-gone to get rid of it since it happened at a nonsensical moment. Moodlet persists after, and even in the day... Yeah you can stay off for good again, time to roll back a save.

    It's been a year, how is that not fixed?
