Detailed information on all base traits

Here you can find detailed information about all base traits. Bonus and Reward traits are not included because those are more like a perk, as it only gives a single advantage. Base traits are different as they influence Emotions, Skills, the Whims they get, Moodlets, social options etc. But before coming, to the overview, we would like to answer some questions frequently asked and would like to give you an overview of some quite useful mods related to traits in The Sims 4.

Useful mods related to traits in The Sims 4

The MC Command Center Mod

Is it possible to give more than three traits to my sim? This is a question receiving us very often. And this is actually a quite good question in our view. In fact, it is quite difficult to characterize a person by just three traits, in real life and also if you go into the Sims game. In addition, those of you who were playing the third edition of the sims may remember that the Sims 3 actually allowed to have more than three traits which was a quite nice feature of the game.

Lucky enough, there are mods available for The Sims 4 allowing us to improve the game play. The MC Command Center mod is one of those. After having installed the mod you just need to click on the computer of your sim and go to MCCC settings. And then, you go to Notification Settings and afterwards to Console Command Settings and then finally to Debug Commands in Cheats. What you need to do there then is to click on Enabled. After you have done that, you just need to hold shift and click on your sim: If you have followed all this steps,  the Cheat Sim Info function will appear, enabling you to add traits. In our view, this is a fantastic functionality, improving the game play and making the game play much more realistic. 🙂

More than 40 new traits

What about having more than the standards traits? Another stunning mod is the Trait Bundle created by Kawaiistaciemods. The mod will add fascinating traits like natural artist, naturally thin, piggy which makes your sim having huge appetite, scientists, sleeper and many many more. You should definitely have a look into this mod. Just follow this link. 🙂
