Description: These Sims become Happy when giving or receiving massages, doing yoga or meditation, or visiting a Spa. They can also Discuss Meditation with other Sims.

Ages: Teen to Elder (Child Sims can't do yoga)

Category: Personality > Hobby

Requires Spa Day GP

Mod Design

The Spa Day game pack is fun, Wellness-skill items and all. However, a lack of a CAS trait in the DLC left a space for this kind of mod to fill in and enrich the new content.

In order to distinguish this mod from other Wellness-related custom traits (including Zerbu's tutorial example for his Mod Constructor), I aimed at making a Maxis Match trait. Within my coding capabilities, I created a trait that mirrors your typical trait in CAS. No 2x skill boosts, no changed default emotion states, no 6+ positive moodlets. Those are fun, but they don't fit every playstyle. The Well-Aligned trait is meant to supplement use of the Wellness Skill without being OP. It's not the flashiest, but it's aligned (heh) with EAxis' vision.

Features

Two New Buffs: Nothing drastic, but these two unique buffs have roots in the Active and Dance Machine traits respectively.
  • Well, Well, Well!: +1 Happy for 4 hours while a Well-Aligned Sim is doing an activity that builds Wellness (e.g. yoga, meditation, etc.)
  • Reveling in Spa Day: +1 Happy continuous while a Well-Aligned Sim is at a Spa Venue.

New Interaction:
  • Discuss Meditation: A reskin of the Debate Best Captain interactions, but it only requires the interaction's initiator to have the Well-Aligned Trait, allowing a Sim to advocate the benefits of mindfulness and Om. All assets come from the base game and Spa Day, but it gives one more option for players wanting more topics to discuss.

Don't forget to enable script mods. Otherwise, this new interaction will not appear in the game.

Whims:
  • Become Focused, Buy a Massage Table, Buy a Meditation Stool, Buy a Yoga Mat, Discuss Cognitive Focusing Methods with X, Do a Yoga Routine, Drink Lemon Honey Detox Tea, Give a Massage, Level Up in Wellness Skill, Meditate on the Meditation Stool, Offer Mental Relaxation Tips to X, Prepare Sugar Free Carob Coconut Cake, Prepare Superfood Salad, Recommend Self Esteem Exercises to X, Share Detox Secrets with X, Suggest Visualization Techniques to X, Get a Foot Massage, Get a Hand Massage, Get a Massage from a Massage Therapist.

Versions:
  • V1.00b: Fixed pie menu icon for Discuss Meditation, which was broken in the Seasons patch.
  • V1.00: Mod is released!

Credits:
  • Tools: Mod Constructor V3, Sims 4 Studio, Notepad++, Pycharm
  • Aknowledgements: Thank you to members of Deaderpool's Discord server for feedback and pointers, including roBurky, Basemental, Bzeebee, and whomever I forgot.

Have fun!
