The BEST Sims 4 More Traits Mods (Plus Trait Mods You Need)

Your sims personalities are very important to how they behave and the things they are good at and enjoying doing and without sims 4 more traits mods you can’t do much. We only get the option of having three traits for adults and some of those might get wasted on things like dietary choices like Lactose Intolerant or Vegetarian so it’s hard to really give your sims a personality.

Thankfully, there are ways to add more traits to the game with mods to get interesting traits you’d never see in the game and even a mod to be able to add more than 3 traits for your adults. Let’s chat about our favourite mods for traits to be added to the game and how to get more trait slots!

The BEST Sims 4 More Traits Mod

We really don’t have enough trait slots in the game for any sim’s life stage and this annoys me to a level I can’t even describe. Since games like The Sims 3 had 5 traits slots it really feels like a step back having only 3 for adult-aged sims in The Sims 4.

Thankfully, modders can fix just about everything in the game at this point and a mod called More Traits in CAS exists to save us all from these woes. With this mod you’ll be able to add more traits to your sims no matter the life stage. There really isn’t anything better for solving the sims 4 more traits problem!

This creator didn’t just stop at adult or elder sims, they even added more trait slots for toddlers so your toddlers can have more personality than just a single trait. The number of traits we can now get with this mod is as follows:

  • Elders, Adults and Young Adults: 5 Traits
  • Teenagers: 4 Traits
  • Children: 3 Traits
  • Toddlers: 2 Traits

It is important to note with these mods that there is some conflicts in The Sims 4 with certain traits when you add too many. You may not see a lot of interactions from one trait when you have 5 and the game may focus on a couple instead of all of them.

40 Trait Mods You Need To Try

Trait mods are a really great way to keep your sims feeling different and more interesting since players can often end up making the exact same sim over and over with the lack of traits in the game. Since you now have a sims 4 more traits mod you can use more of these than ever before.

Below you’ll find so many custom traits you can add to your game to really get interesting sims that you’d love to play with.

1. Agoraphobia Trait

Our first mod on the list is the agoraphobia trait that makes it so your sims aren’t a huge fan of being in public places. The description of the trait states “An anxiety disorder characterized by an extreme or irrational fear of entering open or crowded places, of leaving one’s own home or of being in places from which escape is difficult.”

With this trait your sim is going to take the loner trait to a whole new level and will get negative moods when they are leaving their home. They’ll feel more comfortable in their home and won’t like going to places where there are a lot of people like bars or parks.

2. Anti-Social Mastermind Trait

The anti-social mastermind trait is an interesting one and makes it so your sims aren’t fans of being friends with others but absolutely love the mischief skill. The description of this trait states “These sims are extremely anti-social and have no conscience. They are prideful, aggressive and live a selfish and lonely life.”

These sims are going to have their social need decaying pretty slowly since they really don’t care about being friends with others. They are going to be more likely to do autonomous mean interactions and will love pulling pranks and using the mischief skill.

Our next trait is the attractive personality trait that has a description that reads “If love is labor then these sims have it easy!” This trait will make the sims way more likely to have successful romantic interactions, will build their romantic relationships way faster and can even gain the charisma skill more quickly than normal. These sims won’t even feel embarrassed from their failed romantic interactions because they just don’t care!

There is no greater joy than picking up a good book and reading for hours and for many players the book worm trait just isn’t enough.

6. Bossy Trait

The next trait on the list is the bossy trait which has a description that reads “This sim loves telling people around them what to do and when to do it.

We got a awesome Brave trait in The Sims 3: Ambitions but it has yet to make a true return to the game as a CAS trait. The brave trait has a description that reads “Brave sims are fearless individuals that will fight fires, wrangle burglars and work to protect those around them.”

This trait has a description that says “Deaf sims, or hard of hearing sims, cannot hear the rest of the world.

We get things like bookworm and art lover in the game already, but this pack includes things like movie buff, tinker and artisan and these are so fun.

As simmers, we love fire and we can’t get enough. Why not make your sims have the pyromaniac trait? This trait’s description says “Pyromaniacs enjoy fires a little more than others do. They can create fires and are immune to them.”

The absolute best part of this trait is that your sims will no longer have the potential of death from fire as they will now be immune to them which is incredible.
