Hey everyone! This isn't so much an update as it is a revamp... a lot of my files were corrupted and unfortunately I didn't have a backup for the better elders mod, so I decided to start over and fix some things that were bothering me while I'm at it. That being said, a lot of the features from the last version are in this one, but you'll notice some events and the lot trait are not, I will have better working versions in the next update. Hope you guys aren't too disappointed, but I did manage to add a few new interactions and updated some icons and other small things. Love you all so please don't be shy, drop some suggestions for this revamp!

The Better Elders mod adds more gameplay for elders to create a more in depth experience for your sims. It adds traits, events, aspirations, interactions and more to your game. This mod is a work in progress, and will periodically have updates for bug fixes and to add new features.
These traits are all gameplay traits that are gained through gameplay, not through CAS.
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.
Depending on your relationship with the other sim and/or their traits, these interactions could have different results. Some interactions will give your sim and/or the other sim positive or negative buffs/moodlets! Each trait has exclusive social interactions as well, some may only appear after talking to sims for a certain period of time.
"Ask To Fix Phone"
"Gossip About Neighbor's Kids"
"Destroy Hopes and Dreams"
"Complain about Technology"
"Get off my lawn"
"Criticize Modern Music"
"Give Unsolicited Advice"
