How to Earn Sims 4 Satisfaction Points
Sims can earn Sims 4 satisfaction points four different ways:
- Living in a Haunted House (Requires Paranormal Stuff pack)
Every time your Sim completes an aspiration goal, they’ll earn a number of Sims 4 satisfaction points. Completing an entire aspiration not only rewards you with an extra reward trait but you’ll also have earned anywhere between 3,000-4,000 Sims 4 satisfaction points over the course of completing the aspiration.
Wants (previously called Whims) are like wishes from The Sims 3 or wants from The Sims 2. They were disabled by default in a game update a few years ago but you can re-enable them in the Game Options. Once Wants are enabled, you’ll see thought bubbles above your Sim’s portrait. Hover over them to see what kinds of things they want and fulfill them to earn some extra Sims 4 satisfaction points.
You can lock in Wants you want to complete later by clicking on the pin icon next to them but you can’t delete Wants (unless you buy a potion with Sims 4 satisfaction points). The only ways to get rid of one are to complete it or wait for the game to replace it with a new one.
Scenarios are a great way to earn a lot of Sims 4 satisfaction points, sometimes with little to no effort depending on the difficulty level of the scenario. Just make sure you look at the potential rewards before you start one! Different scenarios have different rewards, so don’t pick a scenario that doesn’t reward you with Sims 4 satisfaction points if that’s what you’re after.
On the Main Menu, start a new scenario of your choice. If you want to challenge yourself, go for an Intermediate scenario. If you just want a quick and easy stack of Sims 4 satisfaction points, pick an Easy scenario. Some scenarios will net you up to 5,000 satisfaction points per Sim! That’s more than what you would typically get for completing an aspiration so it’s well worth your time to do some of those scenarios.
If you own the Paranormal Stuff pack, your Sims can live in a haunted house. For every night you survive in a haunted house, everyone in the household will earn 125 satisfaction points. You can earn even more per night by purchasing the cursed hand statue and setting the house to Heroic mode, which will net your Sims 250 points a night each.
It’s a good way to earn Sims 4 satisfaction points daily without really doing anything… as long as you don’t mind things that go bump in the night.
So what do you do with all those Sims 4 satisfaction points? Spend them on rewards! Open up the Rewards Store by clicking the gift icon on your Sim’s aspiration panel. You can sort by Potions or Traits. Potions are one-time use and can be purchased multiple times. Traits are permanent and can only be purchased once per Sim. There are also a few other objects in the list but the vast majority of the rewards are either drinkable potions or permanent traits.
