The Sims 2: Nightlife


Pleasure Sims doing the smustle dance

Sims with the Pleasure Aspiration love wild nights out, cozy nights in, and what most Sims would consider "the good life". They'll want to use objects that provide them with fun and comfort, while avoiding activities that cause stress or equate to work of any kind. Kick their aspiration meters into platinum by pursuing their whims of the moment, as these Sims can change their tastes on a dime as they travel on their path to the ultimate life of luxury.
Pleasure is a new Aspiration introduced The Sims 2: Nightlife. Pleasure Sims typically want to do simple things for some fun. This Aspiration is a common combination of Romance and Popularity Aspirations, while still holding some significance of its own. Pleasure Sims like to gather and hang out with their friends, but they don't primarily want to be their best friends. They also like to go on dates and do some romance, but they don't have commitment issues like Romance Sims. Most activities they love are involved with Downtown. They are not hard to please, and enjoy just living life and having fun along the way.

Aspiration Desperation[edit | edit source]


When in aspiration desperation, a Sim will grab a lampshade with a crudely drawn face on it, place it over their head, and start dancing. Oddly the sim's face doesn't look displeased at all when they put on or take off the lampshade.
