Various games and expansion packs in The Sims series have added special objects or items that raise or lower the motives of one or more Sims. In The Sims and The Sims 2, they will generally not affect the Room or Environment meters.
The "Concoctanation Station" chemistry set Edit
- The blue potion: Drinking it will raise three of the drinker's motives to maximum.
- The light green potion: Drinking it reduces all of the drinker's motives to almost zero.
- The No More Puddles? charm: This children's charm will raise the caster's hygiene to maximum, but will drop it if the bar is already full.
- The Magic Mood charm: This adult charm will boost the motives of the caster, or of all Sims and pets on the lot, but will drop them if the caster's mood is too high.
- The Eclectic and Enigmatic Energizer: This aspiration reward will boost the user's motives, but may drain them if the user is not in gold or platinum aspiration.
