NOTICE 10/23/2017: After a falling out with EA's community management, I have deleted my Origin account and have retired indefinitely from The Sims.

Probably the biggest and most ballyhooed feature of The Sims 4 is the emotion system. One detail they included was that some emotions are lethal. Let's go through the emotional deaths, shall we?

About that laughter death: Apparently, the creators were so proud of it that they showcased it in early promotional videos. I guess the Sim is supposed to be choking or running out of air while laughing? It's just forced, hokey, and unfunny. It doesn't even make sense for it to be a random thing. I could understand if it was choking because of laughing while eating, but it's just random and unfunny. Looking at it, the creators should be ashamed.

Speaking of embarrassment, ever had the only toilet in your house break and weren't able to fix it before you peed yourself? Well, that's what my No Fountain Toilets mod is for, so that's not the best example. Ever had your Sim propose to the love of his/her life only to be consumed with shame after the heartbreak and keel over? Bonus points if it's a legacy heir whose life is claimed by the shame.

The anger death at least makes some sense - your Sim's heart explodes from the strain caused by rage. But then it doesn't make sense for an otherwise healthy young adult to have his/her heart explode.

Available together or separately.

All to prevent them from calling the Emotion_Failure_Idle (which leads to the emotional death).

Those who died of emotions before you installed the mod will still have the ghost trait corresponding to the emotional death.
