Blog: Learn All About Character Values in The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack

Are you ready for a new blog about The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack? Read all about character values below.

Learn All About Character Values in The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack

Hey Simmers! We don’t expect you to fully join the family without knowing more details about The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack, which is why we’re here today to discuss Character Values.

Young Sims growing up are still trying to figure out how to become productive adults and their Parents are there to help guide them down the right road by instilling strong Character Values. Or, if your Sims are more ambivalent in their parenting, their children’s weak Character Values will manifest into their (probably miserable) adulthood. What’s so great about this feature is that it represents how your Sims play, and there’s so much diversity in the outcomes that you can play The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack for generations.

We’re going to discuss how your Sims can guide (or ignore) their children in a future blog, but today, we want to discuss Character Values. Specifically, the outcome. There are five different Character Values, each with a positive and negative outcome. The five Character Values are Manners, Responsibility, Conflict Resolution, Empathy, and Emotional Control.

As soon as Sims age up from Babies to Toddlers, their Character Values appear in their Simology panel. When Sims age up from Teenagers to Young Adults, their Character Values disappear and the Sims are given permanent Traits that reflect their upbringing.

The Character Values are representations of your young Sims activities. As they perform activities that are positively associated with a Character Value, it’ll increase their positive access. If Sim parents encourage and praise these behaviors, that will also increase it. However, when Sims perform negative activities that are negatively associated with a Character Value, or a parent praises these activities, it has the opposite effect.

How about an example?

Let’s say a Sim mother wants her child to have good Manners. She might teach her child to Say Please and Thank you, or Set the Table. And she’ll likely discipline any bad manners her child exhibits. But perhaps, you’re more interested in a young, ill-mannered rogue? Your Sim’s child may start Swearing, or will wantonly burp and fart around the household. And if not curbed, these can have a permanent effect!

Let’s continue this example. Let’s say this child becomes a teenager, then a Young Adult. Their Character Values are set! If the mother didn’t curb the negative behaviors, the child will gain the Bad Manners Trait. This will unlock new socials, like Point Out Flaws, for one. The Sim will have Whims to Swear, indicating their personal desires to act with bad manners. They’ll also change their autonomous behavior, such as preferring Rude interactions, or failing to clean the dishes.

But, perhaps the mother did invest her time into creating a well-mannered child? Then, they earn the Good Manners Trait. Sims with this Trait always clean up dishes, act politely when introducing themselves to others, and never act rudely on their own. They build Friendships more quickly and, if they have to fart, they only do it in certain circumstances…

Beyond this, all Character Values lead to new Chance Cards catered to Sims based on their Traits – which means you’ll be making tough choices for your Sims throughout their lives based on their upbringing. It’s exciting and full of humor, unexpected twists, and is the perfect opportunity or new stories.

Character Values are such a great Sims feature. They’re the perfect combination of serious and silly consequences based on your choices and the stories you tell. With five Character Values, and two Traits for each, there is so much variety in how your Sims grow up, which means you can play The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack for so many generations.

What stories will you tell? Which bad behaviors will your Sims scold? What behaviors will they praise?

These choices, and more, are yours to make when The Sims 4 Parenthood Game Pack ships worldwide on May 30, 2017 on Origin for PC and Mac.

The new Parenting Skill gives the adults in the room a way to set these problems upright.

And it doesn’t stop there! Parenting has long term consequences, which leads us to the new Character Values Traits. If your Sims take the time to teach their children good manners, like setting the table, and trying to not burp, swear, or fart, they can grow up with new Traits that will positively affect their lives forever. Or, if they don’t do these things, well, there are Traits with consequences of another stripe…

Plus, new clothing styles and the perfect household items to really make the home look like, well, the home of your story.

Are you ready for another stuff pack? The Sims 4’s newest addition is called The Sims 4 Bowling Night Stuff and will be released on March 29th. Read Electronic Art’s official announcement below and take a look at the pictures and trailer.

Hit the Lanes with The Sims 4 Bowling Night Stuff Pack!

Lace up your bowling shoes and set those pins, The Sims 4 Bowling Night Stuff* is coming March 29th, 2017!

Is your Sim ready to take on a fun new hobby? Well, bowling might be just the thing! In The Sims 4 Bowling Night Stuff your Sims can enjoy a casual night out with friends, hit the lanes with a hot date, or share a night of family fun together. And while the Mansion Baron Sims out there may choose to add a set of private lanes to their home, your average Sim wants a local bowling alley where they can meet. The Oasis Springs Dust Bowl comes ready to be placed into your world, or you can convert any Bar, Nightclub, or Lounge into a fully functioning alley.

Kids and adults alike will be able to develop their Bowling skill, all while using the bowling lane with up to four other Sims. This five level skill will reward them every step of the way, as they gain access to additional bowling balls, successful trick shots, and more. Sims that are just starting out may end up throwing the ball anywhere but the end of the lane, but those who stick it out and keep practicing will be rewarded by sending the pins flying as they work towards achieving a perfect score!

Maybe you want something even cooler for your Sim? Perhaps something that really stands out, even in the dark. How about the excitement of Moonlight Bowling? Enable this on your bowling lane and watch them light up, making your Sim Playful and increasing the fun they gain from bowling. It wouldn’t be bowling without the classic shoes, attire, and neon lights!

Mid-century modern tables, chairs, and décor add a great aesthetic touch that brings the retro bowling vibe to any lot. There’s also rockabilly-inspired tops and bottoms to help your Sim look the part, and of course traditional bowling league shirts should you want to form your own bowling crew!

Of course, there’s also Forgotten Hollow, the new World coming in the Vampires Game Pack. We’re so in love with the historic old feeling of this World, complete with Gothic architecture and cobwebs galore. Gargoyles watch over as statues stand in fountains, and fog creeps along the ground. You really get the feeling that this place has sat quietly in the dark for centuries, filled with Vampires and organ music.

We can’t wait for you to get started with your Vampire, and we’ve even written a little Haiku to celebrate

Vampires are here now,
Hiding away from the sun,
Hiss hiss hiss hiss hiss.

We might have taken the uncontrollable hissing Weakness…
