Sims 4 renaissance sim is one of the many picks from the aspirations panel. This one is all about constantly learning, expanding knowledge, and nailing new skills. If your Sims wants to be exceptional on more than one level, this is the aspiration they will certainly benefit from. However, becoming a renaissance sim is not for the faint-hearted. If you want to learn more about how to become one, and what this aspiration is all about, you are in the right place. Get on board and continue reading to find out all you need to know about it.

is renaissance sim aspiration the right fit for your Sims?

Renaissance Sims is one of the five Knowledge Aspirations in Sims 4. If your Sims is an ambitious soul and loves spending a lot of their time learning, the answer is yes! Renaissance Sims are those who are always thirsty for new knowledge. They dream of mastering a few skills rather than mastering only one. These folks won’t settle for anything average, and take big pride in being knowledgable. This aspiration is ideal for those who’d like to try many different things.

If you plan for your Sims to have a strict routine, stay in one career field, and do other things than learning, this is not the best aspiration. Renaissance aspiration will be fulfilled only by Sims who are always on the go – mentally, physically, and professionally.

helpful personality traits

Some Sims will be better at mastering new skills than others. Besides their engagement in learning, this will also depend on their personality traits. However, there is a catch. Because this aspiration can mean a lot of different things, there are no specific traits that can speed up the process. The aspiration is not focused on one specific skill or a task. Instead, it involves learning many different skills that the player picks.

This means that you will get to decide what this aspiration means for your Sims, which is the coolest part of it. For instance, one Sims can master fishing, handiness, and cooking skill, while the other can master painting, writing, and programming skill. Both will fulfill their aspiration to become the renaissance sim!

If you don’t have a precise gameplay plan and want them to learn and develop interests as they go, opt for more general types of traits. Traits such as Genius or Ambitious will help them advance in their career and learn faster overall.

However, if you know upfront what your gameplay goals are, you can be more specific. For instance, if they plan on learning about the environment, and gardening, traits such as Loves Outdoors or Freegan will help. However, for aspiring artists, Creative and Art Lover traits could be much more helpful.

Sims 4 renaissance sim Aspiration rewards

Like all other aspirations, this one too has different levels – four of them. You will be required to not only improve skills, but then level up in one, two, and then three different careers. Once you reach level four, your character will be granted a reward trait – Professorial trait. This will unlock the option to write manuals about subjects and skills they have mastered. Manuals are written on the computer. You Sims is now a sort of a mentor, and these books are meant for other Sims to help them master skills faster. While they will be able to help others learn, other than that there is not much your Sims will be able to do.

  • Reach Level 4 in 4 different skills (300 satisfaction)
  • Reach Level 3 of any career (300 satisfaction)

Ideally, you’ll want to start developing skills that will help you progress in your career faster as this will help with both tasks. Since the aspiration will require you to change jobs, expect to quit the first job after your reach level 3. So, don’t get caught up in it and be ready to try something new.

Level 3

At Level 3 they are the Pantologist. These are the tasks:

  • Reach Level 5 in 5 different skills (750 satisfaction)
  • Reach Level 3 in any career 2 different careers (500 satisfaction)

Don’t settle in a career yet, as to reach next and the final stage you’ll have to change a job once more. Check for your satisfaction points in the rewards panel. If you have earned 3,000 satisfaction points, you can opt to buy a Connections Reward. This will allow you to kickstart at a new job from Level 4, rather than starting all over again. Doing it is optional but will save you time progressing in your career after changing jobs, which you will be required to do even at the next level. This is especially handy if you plan for them to advance faster in a career later on.
