With this mod, Sims (townies too, if they aren't young adults) can receive want or fear slots, or locks while growing up, depending on the aspiration bar level. This mod also disables receiving want and fear slots along with locks as university bonuses but it does not remove them if they were received before.

When a Sim grows up with a red aspiration bar level, they will get a 4th fear slot – if they haven't received it yet.
When a Sim grows up with a high enough* aspiration bar level, they will get a want slot or a lock:
  • A Sim receives a want slot when a difference between their want slots number and their locks number is 3 or fewer, and their number of want slots is at most 5.
  • In other cases, a Sim gets a lock.
A temporal want slot being a vacation benefit called Carefree doesn't count up to the number of want slots.
Take in mind you don't get any notification when a Sim gets an extra want or fear slot, or an extra lock.

The mod comes in 2 versions that differ in the high enough (*) aspiration bar level: platinum and gold. Use only one version at a time.

You need to have at least one expansion pack or stuff pack installed to be able to use this mod.

Known bugs
When a Sim having 6 want slots and 4 fear slots gets a 7th want slot (as a temporal vacation benefit), the 4th fear slot gets hidden until the 7th want slot disappears.

This mod can conflict with mods that modify general university notifications, or that change the way of receiving want or fear slots, or locks, or memories of growing up.
University of Life by Pick'N'Mix doesn't conflict technically but conflicts ideologically with this mod, although theoretically they can be used together and still work properly.
