Alternative lifetime wants?

Alternative lifetime wants?

Postby Avenie » April 4th, 2019, 1:40 pm

I'm currently playing a BaCC, but the lack of variety in LTWs is starting to get to me. I really like to have them, as I like to do what my sims say they want, but they get too repetitive.

Does anybody have any suggestion for alternative LTWs? Things I could keep track of, and then manually make my sim perma plat once achieved. I've thought of a few:

- Be abducted by aliens 5 times. [Knowledge]
- Have five badges. [Knowledge]
- Have a complete garden (one of every harvestable plant in thriving condition). [Knowledge, Family, Fortune]
- Have a house worth $500,000. [Fortune, Pleasure]
- Adopt/have 6 children [Family]

I noticed that my game tends to give me LTWs in batches. So lots of sims roughly the same ages have the same LTWs. I have so many future Professional Party Guests atm.

-Write 10 Best Selling Novels [Knowledge, Fortune, Popularity]
-Throw 20 Roof Raising Parties [Popularity, Pleasure, Romance]
-Paint 10 Masterpieces [Knowledge, Fortune, Popularity]
-Top 3 Careers [Knowledge]
Thank so much Thai for the siggy!

I love this idea! It's always good to have motivations behind the choices we make for our BaCCs to make households more unique and interesting.

PLEASURE:
World Traveler: collect all vacation mementos + buy a vacation home (or one home in each vacation destination?)
The Grass is Always Greener: take and quit every entry-level job from the EAxis careers (may need to do this in the teen and elder stages as well if you have all EPs)

ROMANCE:
Serial Romancer: marry at least 5 different Sims and divorce at least 4

FAMILY:
Adopt and raise well 5 children (any age)
Animal Lover: adopt 5 strays

GRILLED CHEESE: Paint all the grilled cheese artwork + top level grilled cheese sandwich shop

FORTUNE:
Investor Extraordinaire: Earn money in the Adult stage solely through investing in the stock market

NON ASPIRATION-BASED:
Neighborhood Bully: Pick and win 20 fights (mean Sims with 0-1 Nice points)
Art Collector: collect and display all the original EAxis paintings (probably not good for typical CC players)

BUSINESS MOTIVATION:
Fashion Designer - gold Sewing badge + top-level clothing store
Florist - gold flower arranging badge + top-level flower shop
(same with the potters wheel, toy making bench, etc)
Health Guru - make all the juices from thriving homegrown fruits/veggies + top-level juice shop

Oooh, I love all of these ideas! How would you pick one of these? Create a randomizer with all of the original LTWs + these custom ones or something?

My plan is to keep a numbered list and generate a number at teenager stage. I'll include the original ones, too.

And I am so sure there used to be a family LTW of marrying off 6 children, but I've not seen it for years and years.

Not sure if anyone is interested as they’re not as innovative as some of the ones suggested here, but I have a mod from here http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php?topic=164.0 downloaded that brings back LTWs for the university careers so you can go ahead and get perma plat from maxing artist/natural science/show business/paranormal :)
(the link has links to mods for seasons/pets only and freetime +)

Thanks for that, calientequeen. I'm always looking for more motivation to send some of my kids to Uni.
