The Sims 4 MOD: SimmerJohn’s Teen Aspirations v2.0

Available for download at Mod The Sims

Hello, Simmers!

If you are anything like me, you need more things for your Teens to… do… and, you know… aspire to. For that reason: Enter, the Teen Aspiration Set! This Mod adds 15 Teen-Specific Aspirations — as well as 2 Teen-Specific Afterschool Activities — to your game. (And the list is ever-growing!)

**NEW** In Version 2.0

Wow, thank you, everyone, for the feedback and love for this Mod! I hope it adds some fun Gameplay to your Sims This is just a small update today. It includes the following new additions and fixes:

Student Body President Aspiration
Student Government Afterschool Activity
A new “Secure Vote” Interaction for members of Student Government
Allowed for “Engaged” Teens to also complete the “High School Sweetheart” Aspiration, to increase compatibility with other Mods that override/turn off “Exchange Promise Rings.”
Changed the Objective Set for High School Sweetheart to be a bit more challenging. Now, Sims with this Aspiration will also need to go on five Gold Dates.
Added some new Tooltips to assist with some of the Mod-specific Objectives.
Fixed the Student-Athlete Aspiration to register the correct career level. This problem was causing a glitch and Last Exception every time you added the Student-Athlete Aspiration to a Sim. Should be fixed now!
Re-ordered the Objective Sets so that “Being a Teen” comes AFTER achieving the Goal. Otherwise, Sims would be able to achieve their Teen-specific goals as Young Adults, Adults, Elders, etc.

Presently, this Mod adds the following Aspirations and features to your game:

Academic AspirationsAcademic Scholar: This Sim wants to earn a Full Ride Scholarship to University!Straight-A Student: This Sim wants to get an A in High School.University Bound: These Sims are determined to get into University — and a Distinguished program!Valedictorian: These Sims want to become Valedictorian! To do this, this Sim will need to be a Grade A student, go to school in a good mood, and have some luck! Student Body President:: These Sims want to reach the top of Student Government!
Social AspirationsIn Crowd: This Sim wants to be part of the in crowd at school!School Flirt: This Sim wants to Flirt with lots of different Sims at school!Social Media Socialite: This Sim wants to become Social Media famous!Teen Heartbreaker: This Sim wants to have a busy Romance life!High School Sweetheart: This Sim wants to find a long-lasting, Romantic relationship… the one!
Lifestyle AspirationsFuture Philanthropist: This Sim wants to spend a lot of time volunteering!Mischief Maker: This Sim wants to spend the teen years being as Mischievous as possible!Passionseeker: This Sim wants to master a Skill while still a Teen!Teen Moneymaker: This Sim wants to earn $10,000 while still a Teen!Student-Athlete: This Sim wants to become Team Captain and earn a Scholarship to University!
These Aspirations are modeled at TS2’s Lifetime Wants, in that each Aspiration just has one Objective Set with one end-goal in mind. (Well, technically, these Aspirations have two… but the first Objective for each Aspiration is just “Be a Teen.”) These Aspirations also include their own CAS Category: Teen Years (the CAS picture didn’t save).

If you are a Whims-style player like myself, each of these Aspirations includes Whims related to their end goal. Sim autonomy is also controlled by their Aspiration, so Sims will *actually* work toward their goals without being directed.

This Mod also includes and adds the following Afterschool Activities to your game:

New Afterschool ActivitiesHigh School Athlete: This Afterschool Activity is required to complete the Student-Athlete Aspiration and focuses on building the Fitness Skill. Modeled after the Soccer Play Afterschool Activity. Student Government:: This Afterschool Activity is required to complete the Student Body President Aspiration and focuses on building the Charisma Skill.
Currently In Development:Ultimate GamerChange Aspirations In Live Mode UI: Right now, you have to select and change Teen Aspirations through CAS.
I am still updating these Aspirations and plan on adding new features in the future. Up until now, these have just been in my game, but I figured I’d share with the MTS community! Planned features include:Custom Reward TraitsCustom CAS Aspiration TraitsCustom Interactions
(Some of these Aspirations already include these elements. I’ve been updating as necessary for my gameplay, but would be happy to update features faster if you all like this Mod!)

Disclaimers: While this Mod is fully Base-Game Compatible and will show up in your game without any Expansion Packs, some Aspirations do require Expansion and Game Packs to complete, primarily Discover University for some Academic Goals. Though the High School Athlete Afterschool Activity is based on Discover University’s Soccer Player activity, Discover University is not required for the High School Athlete Afterschool Activity to work properly. Right now, the only way to access the Teen Aspirations is through CAS. I am working on getting the Custom Aspiration Category to appear in Live Mode UI – haven’t found a fix quite yet!
If you find any bugs or glitches, or just weird things about the Aspiration in general, let me know so I can fix it!

Have an idea for an Aspiration? I’d love to hear it! Drop it in the Comments for me, and I’ll take a look!

Happy Simming!
