This custom aspiration has been designed to focus Sims on things that make them happy. It is all about giving them some 'me time'.

Please note you will need Spa Day for this aspiration.

Made and tested with game version 1.38.49.1020

If you complete the aspiration you receive the 'Bright Side' trait, an emotional trait where your Sim will remain happier for longer in most situations!

There are 5 Aspiration Levels

Level 1:
Dance in a Group
Be friendly 20 times
Make 2 friends

Level 2:
Use a Hot Tub
Own a TV Worth 2000 Simoleans (or more)
Achieve Level 5 in the Wellness Skill

Level 3:
Listen to Music for an Hour, it doesn't matter what, but keep it happy!
Play a Game for an Hour Straight, like the Sims
Socialize with 10 Different Sims
Perform two Comedy Routines, they better be funny!

Level 4:
Get 5 Massages: find a massage table!
Have 20 Bubble Baths, take some time for yourself!
Practice Yoga 5 Times
Eat Some Pizza, mmmmm

Level 5: (Perfect 10)
Make 10 New Friends
Achieve Level 10 in Wellness to achieve total peace!
Go swimming 10 times, and enjoy it!
Kiss a Sim 10 times (doesn't have to be the same Sim!)

That's really great! I don't think I've seen a custom aspiration before! It reminds me of the "Pleasure" aspiration from The Sims 2! I love it!

The aspiration is fun, but i wish the reward trait was something else. Sims are already pretty easy to make happy.

Thanks for your comment 😀 I’m planning on doing a sort of opposite aspiration - ‘Despicable Me’ where you do negative things

Thank you for your comment, that is a fair point. I’m planning on doing a sort of opposite aspiration - ‘Despicable Me’ where you do negative things so that might be more up your street? 😀

Hey there, have you translators in mind yet? I could do the French one if you like, I really love the idea, and I'd love to play this aspiration in my game

Um slight problem, in the fourth level it calls for 10 kisses but the counter shows that it wants 20. Not that more is bad, it's just a bit confusing.

Once the can is open - The worms are free!

I’m so sorry about that, I’ll investigate and correct it asap!

I have now updated the aspiration to ensure everything on the last stage is set to 10! Please download the new version (1.2) and replace your current mod file in game :-)

Could you tell me which program you use to create your aspirations? I've tried mod constructor and I just can't figure out aspirations! Thank you!

does it work with 1.44 seasons?
Test Subject
#20 Old 9th Jul 2018 at 1:32 PM
Not sure if that's a problem with Seasons, but when I choose your aspiration adult sims don't get the Bonus Trait (Cheerful) and teenagers suddenly have 3 traits in CAS instead of two
#21 Old 20th Jul 2018 at 5:49 PM
So in one of my games the Bright Side trait just randomly popped up as one of a townie's starting 3 traits, without me actually playing them/completing the pursuit of happiness aspiration. Thought I'd let you know.
