The wonderful Sims 4 modder Scarlet has decided to move on from modding. You can read her full post about it here. She has entrusted her traits, Photographer's Eye and Socially Anxious, to me going forward and I will be keeping them compatible with future patches. You can find both available for download here.

Photographer's Eye Trait

Sims with the Photographer’s Eye naturally learn photography more quickly than other Sims and tend to earn more Simoleons for the photos they take!

Based on the Photographer’s Eye Trait from Sims 3.

Benefits and Disadvantages

Benefits for sims with the Photographer’s Eye Trait include:

  • Learn Photography skill faster
  • More effective in Photography than other Sims
  • Earn more Simoleons for the photos they take when using the Sell to Publication interaction on the photo
  • Better Career Performance in:
    • Freelance Fashion Photographer
    • Style Influencer

No disadvantages.

New Interactions

  • Talk About Cameras (Friendly Interaction)

If the interaction is successful, both Sims will get a relationship gain. Additionally, the Sim that initiates the interaction will receive the following buff:

  • Shared Knowledge
    Happy buff for 4 hours

The Sim that is being talked to about cameras will randomly receive one of the following buffs:

  • Nice Chat
    Happy buff for 4 hours
  • Intriguing Chat
    Inspired buff for 4 hours. Sims that receive this buff will learn the Photography skill faster than other Sims while the buff is active.

Socially Anxious Trait

Sims with Social Anxiety will often become uncomfortable in social situations, they do not receive negative Moodlets when their Social Need is low. They may experience panic attacks and stomach trouble resulting in frequent bathroom trips, especially while out in public. Therefore, they prefer to stay home. 

When off the home lot, their Bladder will decrease more quickly. They’ll take frequent restroom breaks. These sims can take medication to help control their Anxiety symptoms. Additionally, tea and exercise can help prevent and reduce some negative emotions.

Taking Medication

Your Socially Anxious Sims can use a self interaction to take medication. They can only take it once a day. If your Sim takes medication, they will be immune to the negative buffs included in this mod for 24 hours. However, they’ll get one random side effect:

  • Decreased Appetite (Fine +1 for 6 hours)
    Hunger will decay a lot slower.
  • Dizzy (Dazed +1 for 2 hours)
    Sims with this buff will more likely do interactions that raise energy.
  • Nauseous (Uncomfortable +1 for 2 hours)
    Sims with this buff are likely to get sick.
  • Drowsy (Uncomfortable +1 for 2 hours)
    Energy decays 2x faster and Sims with this buff will more likely do interactions that raise energy.

The side effects have less of an impact than the negative buffs that can happen without medication.

Buffs

  • Don't Look At Me (Embarrassed +2)
    When around strangers. Removed when the strangers are no longer in proximity to your Sim.
  • Feeling OK (Fine +3)
    When around strangers (at home or while medicated). Removed when the strangers are no longer in proximity to your Sim.
  • Anxious (Tense +2 for 3 hours)
    Sims have a chance to receive this buff anywhere. Once the buff times out, they will receive one of the following:
    • Calmed Down (Happy +2 for 2 hours)
    • Panic Attack (Tense +5 for 3 hours)
      Fun, Energy, and Bladder decreases faster. Hunger decreases slower. More likely to do interactions that raise energy and bladder.
      W
      hen the Panic Attack buff times out, they will receive this buff:
    • Recovering (Dazed +2 for 2 hours)

Sims have a chance to receive one of these buffs while off their home lot:

Install instructions

Add the package and ts4script files to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder or a subfolder in that directory.  Keep all package files and script files paired together in order for the social interactions to work properly. Since this involves script files, these traits can only be placed one subfolder deep.
