Whilst playing the Sims 4, have you ever felt as though the relationships were a little stale? A lot of members of the Sims community aren't too fond of the relationships in the Sims 4. Claiming they feel quite barren and impersonal, with any sim being able to romance another - it lacks a certain depth that some players might be hoping for. That's where Wonderful Whims comes in, this mod was created with the intent to add layers of depth to a Sim's personal life. 


  • Live in a world where every Sim has its own style and preferences that affect everybody
  • Refine your own style and define your own preferences
  • Encounter storytelling situations that make your Sims heart beat faster
  • Learn what others are into and try to impress them with your looks

Impressions / Personalities

  • Learn Sims personality archetypes and share your unique view on the world
  • Use your new special social interactions to voice your personality preference

Relationship Additions

  • Ability to have multiple romantic non-committed and committed partners with the ‘Open Relationships’ function
  • Ability to disable jealousy on individual Sims with the ‘Polyamours’ Wonderful Attribute
  • Ability to disable jealousy for all Sims via Settings
  • Ability to ask multiple Sims at once to ‘Stay the Night’

Each of these abilities can be disabled or customised for the different Sims. But the overall goal then ends up becoming a means of making each Sim feel as though they exist in the world with their own desires and whims. Wonderful Whims help differentiate Sims from each other.
