The Sims 4 City Living: Traits and Aspiration

The Sims 4 City Living offers a couple of new Traits and an Aspiration!

Traits

Excluding the Vegetarian and Unflirty traits that you can select in Create-A-Sim, other traits can be obtained through gameplay, mostly by trying out things around the city or completing the City Native aspiration.

trait-2Unflirty

These Sims get Tense around Flirty Sims and seldom get Flirty themselves. It’s difficult for them to be Romantic in public.

Unflirty Sims have a hard way of flirting with other Sims. The flirty section will show flirty interactions that promise a high chance of failing:

Unflirty Sims don’t like when other Sims try to flirt will them and such attempts will make them embarrased:

You’ll go through plenty of trial and error to unlock the romantic relationship bar. The best way to make your Sim successful in flirting is to get him/her into the Flirty emotional state.

trait-5Vegetarian

These Sims will actively avoid eating foods that contain meat products and can become sick if they eat such foods.

Vegetarians are not supposed to eat meat and will be put in a Sad emotional state if they do so:

After the sad emotional phase is over, your Sims will become very uncomfortable for an hour and a half for being tainted with meat.

TIP: To find out which meal is vegetarian-friendly, simply hover over the food dish / recipe.

trait-1In the Know (City Native Aspiration Reward)

Sims who are In the Know can get a massive discount on market stall purchases if they Haggle with vendors.

You can use your In the Know discount by clicking on a market stall and selecting the In the Know Discount interaction. This will make any product from the stall a lot more cheaper!

trait-4Spice Hound (Reward for eating Spicy Food)

Spice Hounds never find any food too Spicy, and feel Happy for hours after eating a Spicy Meal.

Sims will react negatively at first for eating spicy food, but after eating around 5-6 spicy food meals, they’ll unlock this trait and will feel comfortable eating any type of spicy food.

trait-3Chopstic Savvy (Rewards for using Chopstics)

From slippery noodles to tiny peas, these Sims have mastered the art of eating with Chopstics.

Sims will get embarrassed at first for not knowing how to use chopstics properly, but after 5-6 meals that require chopstics, they’ll unlock this trait and feel confident in using them.

  • I think my game is broken. I’ve been stuck on the aspiration part where you donate to a protestor for a full month now. Not one single protest has ever started I’m a month of playing this game. I can’t move forward until I donate to a protestor.
