Moodlets

See also: Effect Moodlets

Moodlets relate to the mood the sim is in. Different events and happenings in a sim's life can give them positive, negative, or neutral moodlets which will affect their mood. Once you reach a certain mood threshhold, your sim will get lots of lifetime reward points, which they can later use to buy special boosts, traits, and items.

Negative need-related moodlets (such as Tired or Has to Pee) can be clicked on in the moodlets panel to automatically queue an action that will remove the negative moodlet - you don't have to click on the bed or the toilet, just tell the sim to take care of the problem.

Needs

The following moodlets relate to the basic core needs of a sim.
