Whims and satisfaction points
Sims have their whims that are displayed right above their heads, on the bottom panel. Their whims result, mainly, from:
1) the Sim's traits (e.g. an ambitious Sim will whim about a promotion at work);
2) aspiration (e.g. a Sim with the Nerd Brain aspiration wants to develop logic);
3) immediate circumstances (e.g. the presence of another Sim, staying at a bar);
4) current mood (e.g. a flirty Sim wants to enter flirty interactions).
Next to each whim, the number of the satisfaction points to obtain is displayed - a reward for satisfying the Sim's whim. It pays off to satisfy these whims and gather the points!
You also obtain satisfaction points by meeting the requirements of the successive stages of aspirations. The sum of the obtained satisfaction points can be viewed in the Sim's aspiration panel [G]. Right next to the number, there is an icon the you can access the reward store with.
By clicking on the Sim's aspirations tab [G] and on the present icon, you access the store, where you can spend satisfaction points for boosters. You only need to click "receive" next to the product (as long as you have the required number of satisfaction points).
Boosters have been divided into two categories: potions and traits. After you buy a potion, you can then find it in the Sim's inventory and you can use it at any moment. You can also give it to someone else. The effect of the potion is instantaneous, e.g. satisfying a need. All of the properties of the potions have been described below. A very useful potion is the potion of youth , thanks to which the clock is set back to the very beginning of the current age group. I.e. if he is left with 2 days, until he progresses from adult to senior the clock is set back to the beginning of the stage of adulthood.
