Wicked Whims (18+) and Wonderful Whims are both amazing mods that provide game changing features for sims’ personalities and relationships. While they’re both similar at the core, there are some notable differences that may leave you wondering which one is right for you and your game. While both mods provide an Attractiveness System (think turn ons and turn offs but even more detailed than you could’ve ever imagined), Menstrual, Pregnancy and Birth Control Systems as well as Personality and Impression Systems — there are a few ways that each mod handles these things differently which will ultimately determine which one is right for you. To help make this decision a little easier, I’ll outline these things below:
Wicked Whims (18+)
- Configures Attractiveness for Teens and up
- Uses its own ‘sex system’ that enables the use of custom detailed sex animations
- Has its own body system that makes sims anatomically correct, ie: no more barbie bodies
- Pregnancy chances are dependent on the mod’s sex system
- Displays sexual verbiage in different places throughout the game, ie: ‘Watch Porn’ on computers, ‘Have Sex’ in whims and the Romance pie menu when conversing with other sims
- Configures Attractiveness for Young Adults and up
- Uses the game’s ‘woohoo system’ and does not have its own animations
- Does not make sims anatomically correct
- Pregnancy chances are dependent on the game’s woohoo system
- Does not display sexual verbiage
Which one should you choose?
If you’re under 18
If you only want the Attractiveness/Menstrual/Personality systems (or at least one of them) but don’t mind teens not having the option for Attractiveness
If you have no interest in ever using the sex animations
Then Wonderful Whims is for you!
If you’re over 18 and want teens to have Attractiveness preferences
If you may want to use sex animations from time to time
If you don’t mind seeing sexual verbiage sparingly throughout the game
Then Wicked Whims (18+) is for you!
If you’re ready to give Wicked Whims a shot, but don’t want crazy sex stuff taking over your game, check out this article that gives step-by-step instructions on how to disable sex and nudity autonomy. If you’re not interested in doing it yourself, it’s cool, you can download my settings (be sure to read the directions) where I’ve already done it for you.
As always, happy simming!
