Quake Zone

Earthquakes will happen every so often on your lot, causing the game camera to shake along with some sound effects. Sims will react negatively to it, getting a +2 Tense moodlet.

Cursed

Try not to fix broken things or expose your Sim to death too much. This trait makes it more easy for your Sim to die of a certain death.
