What it does
Discomfort will affect your sim's mood in new ways. Small amounts of discomfort can make your sim more susceptible to other negative thoughts, tipping them over into being overcome with anger, tension, or sadness. But when it's appropriate, the 'uncomfortable' mood can still take centre stage and make your sim feel awful.

It can help your sims feel a little more human, and allow them to experience a wider range of emotions.

Uncomfortable Overhaul is also included in the Total Emotional Overhaul of the upcoming Meaningful Stories mod pack.

Uncomfortable Overhaul in detail
Changeable Discomfort: 'Uncomfortable' is now a changeable mood, which means it can boost the score of other negative emotions similar to how 'happy' boosts the score of positive emotions.



Passive Discomfort: The score of changing uncomfortable moodlets is added to the largest negative emotion when determining what dominant mood to put the sim in, but NOT when determining what intensity level of that mood to put them in. A bunch of uncomfortable moodlets can flip a sim from feeling 'happy' to feeling 'sad', but they cannot boost a sim from feeling 'sad' to 'very sad'. This allows the base game's balance between mood intensities to be maintained, and means emotional deaths remain rare.



Assertive Discomfort: If an individual uncomfortable moodlet has a score larger than all of the largest other negative emotion's moodlets combined, then it will overcome the other negative mood and force the sim into the 'uncomfortable' mood. This means that extreme uncomfortable moodlets like the +40 'really needs to pee' moodlet still make your sim feel appropriately uncomfortable.


Known issues
  • Uncomfortable moodlets that are boosting another emotion are displayed as fading from green to the boosted emotion's colour, just like a happy moodlet boosting a positive emotion. This appears to be a hardcoded visual, and can't be fixed.
  • An extreme strength uncomfortable moodlet will display as boosting a weaker other negative mood while a sim is asleep or in a positive mood. Don't worry - once the sim reaches the negative score necessary to enter a negative mood, the uncomfortable moodlet will assert itself and change to the uncomfortable mood.

Recommended mods to go with this
  • No Happy Environment Moodlets
    With permanent happy moodlets around, it can still be hard for a negative mood to come to the surface. Disable happy moodlets from decorations for a better balance between positive and negative moods.
  • Emotional Inertia
    With emotional inertia, discomfort causing a negative mood will be a bigger deal, with more lasting consequences.
  • Variable Emotional Traits
    Random strength moodlets from emotional traits can give another little push towards gloomy and hot-headed sims sometimes feeling sad or angry.
