Hey guys! I decided to update this for the current patch since my new projects are taking longer than expected...
Doting Grand Parent
Grandparent sims can use the "Spoil Grandchild" Interaction in the friendly category to give their grand kids money for toys and for a chance of gaining this trait. It is a gameplay trait which makes sims autonomously interact with kids more and give whims you would expect from a good grandparent.
Elders can use the "Destroy Hope and Dreams" Interaction in the mean category on a child or teen have a chance of gaining this trait. It is a gameplay trait which makes sims autonomously act mean towards other sims including kids. They will also have mean whims.
Children or teens who get their dreams crushed will gain this trait. It is a gameplay trait which makes sims occasionally sad because their dreams were crushed at an early age.
With this mod elder sims will have more interactions that are exclusive to them. There are a few social interactions that all elders can use under the friendly interaction or mean interaction such as:
"Ask To Fix Phone"
"Gossip About Neighbor's Kids"
"Spoil Grandchild" *New*
"Destroy Hopes and Dreams" *New*
"Complain about Technology"
"Get off my lawn"
Depending on your sim's traits, they will be able to use other interactions too. For example, if your elder sim is family orientated they can also use:
"Give Life Advice"
"Tell Stories About Old Times"
If you have an elder sim has hot headed trait they can use interactions such as:
"Criticize Modern Music"
"Give Unsolicited Advice"
There are a few more interactions but I think it is more fun if you explore them for yourself. Most positive traits unlock the positive interactions and the negative traits unlock the negative interactions. If you a sim with both (i.e. good and hates children) they will have access to all the interactions.
Some of the interactions will give the sims buffs depending on how well they receive the interaction so look out for that. For example, some sims may not like getting life advice from an elder.
Invite friends and family over for some tea, goodies, and gossip!
Senior Singles Event
Elders need some love too!
War Veterans Meeting
Honor your brave veteran sims (City Living Required for goaled event)
We may not have bingo, but elder sims still deserve to have fun!
This lot trait will spawn elder sims to the lot automatically and your sims will get a happy or uncomfortable buff depending on their age while on the lot. *New* Caretakers will now also spawn and help out the elder sims by cooking, cleaning, and socializing with them.
