The Best Traits Mods In Sims 4 In One Place

Traits directly influence your Sim’s character. But unfortunately, the base game doesn’t offer too many options in this aspect. The trait system is old, outdated, and pretty limited, so we’re forced to only choose 3 character traits per Sim. And most of the time, your chosen traits aren’t really in sync with each other. So why not improve the gameplay with mods adding new personality traits to the game?

This is obviously not a satisfactory way to play the game. But the best solution for this problem is to install a bunch of Sims 4 traits mods. In my personal experience, I’ve tried over 100 trait mods. And honestly, some have really changed how I play the game.

In this list, you’ll find the best trait mods for Sims 4 no matter if you’re looking simply for fun, for gameplay improvements, or for adding more realism to the game. These 40 trait extensions are exceptional in every aspect and I totally recommend them.

That said, let’s check out the top 40 must-have traits mods!

40. Sims 4 ‘Shutterbug’ Trait by MarlynSims

sims 4 traits mods - Shutterbug trait

I start this giant list with one of my all-time favorite traits for Sims 4 – the Shutterbug character trait by MarlynSims. This is such a great mod that totally beats all similar traits I’ve ever tested.

For starters, Sims with the Shutterbug trait are photography addicts. They love to take photos all the time and connect emotionally with their images. They also want to learn as much about photography as possible.

But that’s not all. Sims with this trait are also more likely to earn money with photography and increase their skill faster. They will also receive buffs when they’re engaged in photography. So, definitely give it a try!

The Beach Lover Trait by KiaraSims4Mods is definitely the simplest trait mod I have on this list. As you can see from the image, Sims with this trait love the beach and the sea and prefer to live in tropical regions.

This mod also includes new social interactions, such as Talk about the beach and Chat about beach views. There are also new buffs connected with visiting the beach, sunbathing, diving in the ocean, and other similar activities.

There are tons of people in the real world with this character trait, so it’s a good thing that we now have it in Sims 4 too.

Sims 4 Traits Mods

In the real world, half of my friends are pastry fanatics. They love to bake and they constantly learn new recipes from all over the world. But in Sims 4, we don’t have an equivalent character trait. And that’s why I recommend the Pastry Lover Trait by Caradriel!

Pastry Lovers are Sims that love to cook and eat pastry. There are a bunch of things included with this trait, such as watching Cakeflix and participating in a TV Baking Show. You’ll also unlock new social interactions such as asking other Sims about their favorite cakes.

All in all, it’s a great mod that deserves your attention!

37. Sims 4 Hates Outdoors Trait by MarlynSims

sims 4 traits mods - hates outdoor trait

Introverts and city souls unite – here’s a character trait in Sims 4 that makes your Sim actually hate the outdoors. We don’t have any similar traits in the game, so owning the “Hates Outdoors” trait is a brilliant opportunity to add complexity to TS4.

It’s simple – Sims with this trait hate going out on adventures in nature. They will never start one and will actually get +2 uncomfortable moodlet called ‘Plagued by Nature’ whenever they’re outside.

Because of this, Sims with this trait will level up archeology and all other outdoor skills a bit slower. But it’s tons of fun once you install it, trust me!

36. new Spa Day Traits by Kuttoe

sims 4 traits mods - new spa day traits

If you own the Spa Day game pack for Sims 4, you’ll definitely enjoy these awesome new traits. This is such a well-developed mod that I still have it in my game files. It’s often updated and still works brilliantly.

The 2 new traits in this pack are Health Nut and Lavish. Health Nut Sims are health fanatics and enjoy yoga, wellness, and fitness. And Lavish Sims enjoy being pampered all day long because they hate cooking and cleaning.

Both traits are super fun in-game and introduce new interactions that are very funny. 10/10 recommended for all Spa Day fans.

35. Sims 4 Feminist Trait Mod by MarlynSims

sims 4 traits mods - feminist trait

When I say that the traits system in Sims 4 is pretty limiting, I’m also implying that you can never create your perfect Sim with the base game only. And custom mods like the Feminist Trait by MarlynSims only prove me right.

The Feminist Trait makes your Sim a believer in equality and a fighter for women’s rights. The trait comes with 7 custom interactions and 13 new buffs too. The trait is in the Lifestyle category.

All in all, this is a great trait mod that adds a lot of flavor to your gameplay. Feminists will definitely enjoy it, but I recommend it for everyone to try!

34. Farmer Trait by KiaraSims4Mods

sims 4 traits mods - farmer trait

We haven’t seen too many farm-related traits or activities in Sims 4. Yes, the Cottage Living DLC offers a similar lifestyle, but it doesn’t feature a farmer trait. And Kiara‘s Farmer mod is the only way to add this trait to the game!

What’s great about this trait is how well it actually fits in Sims 4. Farmer Sims like to live on a farm, take care of animals, grow plants, and harvest them for a living. You’ll also get new buffs, new whims, and many new social interactions.

Sims with this trait will also learn gardening and fishing much faster.

This pack introduces 5 character traits – Coffee Addict, Frat Boy, Sorority Girl, Studious, and Cognitively Impaired. These traits are done so well that each of them nearly transforms the Sim into a different character.

This mod gives you 12 traits based on the 12 zodiac signs from the real world. Each sign has a corresponding trait that works in a unique way in-game. Also, each sign/trait has different whims, skill changes, and relationship changes.

What does this mean?

It means that a Leo Sim will act much more differently than an Aries Sim. For example, Leo Sims can build a relationship faster while the Aries Sims can level but Charisma faster. In any way, the mod is super fun!

And the last trait that we want to showcase here is the pyromaniac trait. We admit this isn’t among the most popular nor the most impactful trait mods for The Sims 4. However, playing the game with a pyromaniac Sim is one hell of a blast (pun intended)!

4. Shyness Trait by MissBee

Trait mod - Shyness

Unlike the more serious conditions, shyness affects everybody to some degree. And while that’s true for the real world, it is less so in The Sims 4.

I have found that Sims don’t get shy too often and aren’t really embarrassed by their actions. And this is ridiculous because it is not realistic at all.

Well, the Shyness Trait mod by the popular MissBee changes all of that. It adds a proper trait that makes our Sims generally shy. With it, they will have a hard time expressing themselves, being comfortable, or under pressure. Instead, these Sims will only be happy with their close friends.

From realistic mods for your Sim to build-mode tools and camera settings – you will find them all there!

But if this is your first time installing trait mods for Sims 4, here’s what you need to do.

First things first. The trait mod that you wish to have must first be downloaded from the internet. Don’t worry, we will provide direct links to all the trait mods featured in our list. And once you have it on your computer, you can proceed with extracting it.

If you’re using Windows 10, you can simply right-click the downloaded trait mod file and extract it wherever you like. The second step is to copy those extracted files and paste them into your Mods folder inside your Sims 4 game inventory.

The usual destination is Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods.

And the last thing that you need to take care of is to head into the game and enable Mods and Custom Content. You will wind this option in your game settings. Simply select the feature and you will be able to enjoy your trait mods.

Conclusion

As mentioned above, the Sims 4 trait mods are deeply personal. And although I showcased many quality trait mods in this post, the choice of which one you should download is ultimately yours. Everybody is different and everyone plays the game in a unique way. So, download the trait mods that you want to select for your own Sims!

However,  we highly advise you to try as many of the showcased mods as possible. Traits will not change the way you play the game essentially, but they will introduce new perspectives. At the least, they will refreshen your playtime and make you want to play The Sims 4 even more!

And lastly, there are many many more trait mods for The Sims 4 all over the internet. Frankly speaking, new ones get uploaded every day! Here I have only listed our (SnootySims crew) personal favorites and the ones that we have enjoyed the most as veteran simmers.

We have tried every single one of them and have used them once or twice. If we had to choose, we would say that the Awakened Mind and the“Pyromania” are the traits to try out first. But trait mods that deal with autism, depression, and ADHD, are also must-have extensions!

Additional comment: We didn’t cover the Loverslab traits mod for purpose, as I’m not covering adult content at SnootySims. If you are looking for more mods, check our post on the best aspiration mods in The Sims 4.
