Unlocked InteractionsEdit

  • Friendly Sims can use the "Get to Know" interaction on Sims they've recently met. This works like normal Chatting but has a higher chance of revealing a Sims' traits.

Player NotesEdit

  • Friendly Sims will default to friendly interactions when acting autonomously, even if they have a trait that encourages mean interactions, like the Hot-Headed or Inappropriate traits.
  • Just like a Sim with the Good trait can get Mean Spirited trait, an Evil Sim still can get the Friendly, unless Mean Spirited is chosen.
  • Good and Friendly Sims would often get along, unless the Friendly Sim has the Evil trait.

  • Friendly Sims have more success at cheering up Sims who are angry or upset. The same goes for Good Sims.
