How to make Sims Inspired and boost their careers


If your Sim is pursuing a creative career, feeling Inspired and Very Inspired helps them get better results. For example, if your Sim is an author, feeling Inspired can help them write books faster.

But how do you make Sims feel Inspired? There are many ways to unlock this moodlet and we’ll list some of them below.

How do you make Sims Inspired?

Step 1: Get rid of negative emotions

Engage your Sims in fun activities to help them get rid of negative emotions. Make sure they’re happy. The Happy moodlet will boost the Inspired emotion.

Step 2: Take a Thoughtful Shower

Taking a Thoughtful Shower is the easiest way to make your Sim Inspired. Your Sim’s head will be full of ideas after a quick shower. Always take a Thoughtful Shower before engaging in creative activities.

Step 3: Browse art on the Internet

Click on your Sim’s computer, select Web, and then click on Browse art. Browsing art on the Internet is a nice quick way to boost your Sim’s creativity.

Step 4: Use a Future Cube

Sims can ask the Cube for creative ideas. They’ll instantly feel Creatively Inspired. Sims can keep a Future Cube in their inventories if they want to always have one at hand.

Step 5: Play with Molding Clay

You can find Molding Clay under Kids’ toys. Adult Sims that play with clay will get the Inspired moodlet.

Step 6: Play an instrument

If your Sim can play an instrument, have them play the guitar, piano or violin and they’ll feel Inspired for eight hours. Playing an instrument also helps Sims improve their skills in the instrument as well. Practice makes perfect.

Plucking for Inspiration with an instrument is not the quickest method to get Inspired. If you need to pull the mood quickly, go for a different method such as taking a Thoughtful Shower or browsing art on the computer.
