Meaningful Stories is a mod pack that redesigns the mood and emotions system of The Sims 4. This collection of changes big and small aims to allow your sims to feel more human, to make the events in their lives feel more meaningful, and to turn managing their lives into a more interesting challenge.
Your sim might get into a depressive rut for days that takes planning and effort and some help from their friends to overcome. Or your sim’s creative nature might be filling them with inspiration when they ought to be focused instead, so you send them to work on their novel to get the ideas out of their head. But then something special happens, like a new friend, a promotion, or a first kiss, and they feel truly happy for once, in a way they never have before.
Sims 4 Meaningful Stories Features
In-game Tutorial – You don’t need to read everything on this page to understand the mod! A system of tutorial tip notifications will introduce the features of the mod to you when they are affecting your sims in play.
In-game Settings Menu – Every feature of this mod is optional! If there’s any particular thing that doesn’t suit your play-style, you can tweak it or turn it off using the in-game settings menu.
With Meaningful Stories, emotions behave in ways that are smarter, subtler, and more varied.
A sim won’t be able to flip from intense sadness to intense happiness without passing through the emotions in-between. A nice room and a comfortable seat won’t cause a mildly amused sim to laugh themselves to death. And small amounts of discomfort can make a sim more susceptible to negative thoughts.
