The Sims 4 MOD: Social Pariah Trait
The main reason for this is, CAS traits can be applied to any sim that is randomly generated by the game and it could be annoying if you end up with a bunch of townies you can’t even talk to, as you can’t initiate conversation with a Social Pariah; they can only initiate with you and only to a limited degree.
How to Add/Remove the Trait
To add the trait to a sim:
1) In Live Mode, hit CTRL+SHIFT+C
2) In the box that pops up, click on it and type in (or copy/paste in) “testing cheats on” (without quotes), then press enter
3) Again in the box, type in “traits.equip_trait SocialPariah” (without quotes), then press enter
To remove the trait, replace the command from step 3 with “traits.remove_trait SocialPariah”
Note that you can add or remove it at any time, your choice! So if, for example, you only want to avoid being targeted by socials for a few sim hours, for some totally normal and not at all weird or nefarious purpose, you could add it temporarily and then remove it later.
What it does and how it works
Social Need won’t decay.
Other Sims can’t initiate conversation with you in any way.
You can initiate conversation with other sims to a very limited degree. Very limited meaning, there may be a few exceptions, but for the most part, this trait will make you an isolated hermit, socially. [If you’re a Vampire, I suggest getting intimate with plasma packs, or removing Social Pariah when you need to feed.]
What’s the point?
This is essentially a trait to use if you want to play a sim who is a total loner with zero interest in other sims. You can go to a bar and drink, while everyone pretends like you don’t exist, to simulate reality more accurately. You can play that person who feels alone in a crowd; who seemingly walks through life like a ghost. Except not a sim ghost, but an actual ghost who no one knows is there. You could do a strange experiment where you have a household full of sims who have this trait and then you film it happening. You weirdo.
It’s advisable to use this with autonomy turned off, to avoid any awkward situations where your sim tries to initiate conversation and it doesn’t work because of the limitations of this trait. I figure if you’re playing a single, solo sim, you’ll probably be attentive enough to control most of what they do anyway.
Zippo to worry about here. It’s just a new trait.
