Anyone know what causes a Sim to have a particular lifetime want? I keep trying to make Mad Scientists or Rock Gods, and they keep wanting to be Media Magnates or Space Pirates. (Just examples, really.) It seems to be loosely based on personality, but in no way that I've been able to decipher. Anyone care to share their experiences? Munineye 21:31, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

It depends on their Aspiration. For example, Knowledge Sims are more likely to want to be a Mad Scientist. Popularity and Romance are likely to give the Rock God want. -- a_morris 14:41, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Unused Lifetime Wants[edit source]

Apparently, there were so many lifetime wants, but they were later unused or even at the first place. For example, to have alien babies, pet-related LTW with inconsistent number, and special careers. Nikel23 15:33, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

?[edit source]

Can you control what the lifetime want is, bsides picking the aspiration?

In The Sims 3, yes, but not in TS2. ~>ђ (tคlкς๏ภtгเ๒ร) 23:55, July 15, 2011 (UTC)
By cheating, actually yes. You can use boolprop testingcheatsenabled true, spawn a Sim Modder, and use change lifetime want until you get what you want. It must be checked one by one to know the current lifetime want. And wogan, your signature font is funny! ^^ Nikel Talk 03:43, July 17, 2011 (UTC)
If you can use simPE, you can make custom lifetime want too! example: have 20 enemies... lol Wir.wiryawan 09:40, July 18, 2011 (UTC)
Gasp! Really?? The only thing I know is that we can replace the amount, but I don't know if we can make custom ones like the one you mentioned... Nikel Talk 10:41, July 18, 2011 (UTC)
yup, you can put normal wish to become lifetime wish and edit its value. go and try! Wir.wiryawan 13:13, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

Loophole[edit source]

I just heard you could fulfill the Own 5 Top-Level Businesses LTW by reaching the top level of a business, drop the level to 9, and get back to level 10 and repeat it 5 times. Not sure if it's cheaty, considering the goal is punishing anyway. Nikel Talk Vote! 13:58, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

Uni-careers lifetime wants[edit source]

As I've seen here, it seems that the "become ecological guru", "become cult leader" and "become visionary" and other uni career lifetime wants are not actually unused/removed in early development, it seems they only work with the base game and uni installed without any other EP. Whatever on any EP after NL, those lifetime wants will be removed. Currently I have the base game and I'll be getting Uni soon, so I'll check it when I get it, but currently, has anyone tried doing this/can anyone confirm it? Jadd.H (talk) 10:41, March 13, 2016 (UTC)
