Emotions and Items/Actions That Influence Them
« on: September 26, 2014, 08:53:22 PM »
This is a compiled list of items, actions, and situations that influence emotions. This list was originally started by Andeleisha and a lot of the community contributed to it. I have started the new list to keep it up to date.  If you have any additions please post and I will add them to the list as soon as possible. I will also be adding the addition of information for each emotional state and trying to categorize more as needed.


Quick Emotion List




The Sims 4 is an emotionally based game. Emotions have an affect on job performance, wishes, and general interactions. ArthurHeng made a great post on the basics of how emotions work so I would recommend checking there if you need more info on how the emotion system works.







This list has been updated till this post

Angry
« Reply #1 on: September 26, 2014, 08:54:01 PM »
Angry
This is generally referred to as a negative emotion although Sims going for the "Public Enemy Aspiration" will consider this a good place to be. Normally it is caused by negative conversations/interactions with other Sims. Sims with the Hot-Headed trait generally become angry more than other Sims. Like with most emotions there are unique things that you can do while Angry such as creating an Angry Painting and having an Angry Workout. It also seems that you can gain Mischief skills through anger actions as well.

Actions
-Declaring Enemy


Situations
-Yelled At (being yelled at and insulted)
-Being Around Children (if you have Hates Children trait)
-Flarn (random from insane trait) / +1 3hrs
-Having a bad day at work


Items
-Angry Painting (Good) / +1
-Angry Painting (Excellent) / +1
-Angry Painting (Masterpiece) / +2


Ways to Reduce
-Tea Magic Personal Brewer / Calming Chamomile
-Cold Shower

Happy
« Reply #10 on: September 26, 2014, 08:59:17 PM »

Although being Happy is a mood it works differently than most as it's job (for the most part) is to boost whatever positive mood you have or act as a general mood. Happy can over power negative emotions in the game as well by being more Happy than you are Sad will make Happy your active mood. It is affected by a lot of things that your Sims does daily, the environment your Sim is in, and just general needs being met.

You can also use a screenshot and make it a memory so that your sim can reflect on it. Whatever emotion you (the player) gives the memory will invoke that moodlet on your sim. Accessed through the camera icon, top left of screen in game. First you view screenshots, then chose to make one a memory, then use fall-down menu on memory to pick the emotion.
Then when live mode you can click on the camera and chose which memory your sim is to reflect on and it adds to their action cue.
It's a really good tip as it takes your sim seconds to reflect on it and gives a good lasting moodlet, 4 hours I think (not in game to check at moment but I'm pretty sure it lasts 4 hours).

I noticed that you mention focused paintings( good, excellent and masterpiece) but from my observations you cannot get past good and they are not really paintings. Although you must be focused to start a mathematical equation on the easel you increase logic while you work on it ( and not painting skill). Also my sim got only good +4 at logic lvl 1 and at logic lvl 10 and I painted dozens ( painting skill ranging from 1 to 10, but as I said it does not seem to matter) .Only thing that differs is the looks of the final product ( lvl 1-4 logic, lvl 5-8 logic and an ugly one for lvl 9-10 logic).

Although you must be focused to start a mathematical equation on the easel you increase logic while you work on it ( and not painting skill). Also my sim got only good +4 at logic lvl 1 and at logic lvl 10 and I painted dozens ( painting skill ranging from 1 to 10, but as I said it does not seem to matter) .Only thing that differs is the looks of the final product ( lvl 1-4 logic, lvl 5-8 logic and an ugly one for lvl 9-10 logic).

My painter sim paints masterpiece emotion paintings at will and they are all +9. Unlocks once you reach level 10 painting

Wow that is just amazing I didn't realize that even existed. I may have to hop in my game quick and play with this and add in the top post some kind of guide since it applies to all emotions.

I was hoping you'd do that, I'm not very good at explaining how to do things in game but I enjoy exploring things to learn new things  :)

My sim too, at will unlocked also with expressionistic trait from master painter aspiration(flirty, sad, angry, playful,confident) but focus does not enter this category. CAn you really paint a focused painting at will ? Have you really painted a focused masterpiece  ?
