What about some new traits?

    What other traits would you like to see in the game?

    I see a lot of people here in the forums asking for some of those from TS3 back, and I would love to see it happen. I get how more in-depth traits are (or are supposed to be) in TS4, but I do miss having a wider variety to choose from (as well as having fore traits associated to a sim, not just three).

    Anyway, I'd love to see a "serious" type of trait, like someone who doesn't appreciate jokes and is always offended by them. Also shy, daredevil and paranoid.

    This is controversial, but I would loooove to get a "stupid" trait!

    What about you guys?

    I want sarcastic, which was mentioned in another thread but I don't really know how they would put that in the game.

    Also, maybe instead of 'stupid', they could put in 'ditsy' or and 'airhead'. One never knows what can offend others nowadays. Someone who just spaces out, and doesn't understand jokes.

    I miss the OCD trait from sims3. It was funny how they'd have to check the sink and stuff.

    I want a trait that makes Sims obsessive over supernatural and scifi Sims, you know, vampires, aliens, werewolves, mutants, etc. Wants to learn about them, wants to befriend them, wants to be them. Kinda like Knowledge Sims were like in Sims 2. Maybe even as an Aspirational Trait instead of a Trait-Trait, because that actually makes more sense (if they include Aspirations that are specific to Lifestates).

    I also would like a Moviebuff Trait for the new SP (I'm not sure if there is one or not) since we have a Trait for books, games and food.

    And it would be nice if we had Traits that we can get for accomplishing things in-game without having to buy. For instance, my Sim goes so many meals without eating meat, they gain the Vegetarian trait; or if my Sim reads a lot of books, they gain a Trait that let's them read faster for more boost to fun or something. Do a lot of pranks, gain a Trait that makes them better at doing pranks and even opens up new pranks to do. There's a lot of things that can be done with being able to gain Traits strictly from gameplay that they haven't tapped into, I think.

    This is an AMAZING idea. Though I can see the developers arguing that this is the idea behind completing aspirations. But still, imagining a more organic way of incorporating new traits sounds so cool.

    I agree with everything! OCD was a lot of fun and sarcastic would be awesome.

    I remember one of the gurus saying a looooong time ago (I think it was for TS3) that they had an idea for a Loud trait. That has since been my favorite idea ever.

    Oh and I want awkward back!

    I would really love to get the Vegetarian trait back! I loved that it had a few recipes and that Sims where grossed out by meats. I think it would really pair well with all the hippie-ish Sims being made.

    I feel like a neurotic trait would be perfect! Jealous and insane aren't enough for me.

    Sensitive would be a cool trait. Every emotion is, like, +2 or +3 more intense but maybe they don't die from emotional deaths and their other Traits get amplified. (Like Squeamish Sims faint instead of being just gross out.)
