Thanks for reading And For Your Time!
Also I noticed that if you buy a 'lump of clay' you have the option to mould it which makes them inspired.
What is a good way to get very inspired for base game most of the ways are to hard or to complex almost and I like trying to challenge my sim with writing or art and want to do very inspired to make time not so long and to make a lot more simoleons what are good ways to prolong very inspired I can sometimes make it happen but not very long how do I do this?
Research Art Reference (Computer - Painting Career) +1 8hrs if your sim is in the Painting Career otherwise it is only 4 hrs. But the hands down best methods of getting a longer term inspired moodlet is with Spa Day Pack items and the/or the cloudgaze animation that came with Outdoor Retreat.
So with base game only it would be about stacking the happy modlets and then adding a inspired moodlet that if stacked with enough Happy ones will get your Sim into the Very state.
