Emotion Names Overhaul
I like the idea of this very useful mod very much and I think it will be very handy to very many people. Very. See how annoying the word “very” can be after a while? Let’s take it out of the Sims 4 emotion names! Now instead of “Very Energized” your Sim will be “Exhilarated” and instead of “Very Sad” they will be “Depressed”. (This tuning mod goes very well with my Bipolar Trait and the other mood intensive traits I’ve created.)
Truth be told, I got the idea for this from KawaiiStacie’s Slice of Life mod which also does this. (If you have that mod, you don’t need this and it will cause a conflict!) I tried playing with SOL but it messed up my traits so I had to uninstall it completely. I still wanted my emotions renamed so I made my own mod for it. This is not a copy of any tuning from SOL. I made this new file from scratch on my own… with a little help from a thesaurus.
If you would like to help me translate this mod into other languages, I’d love that! If you don’t know how to translate mod strings, but you speak another language, you can still help. Just translate each emotion and send me the words. I’ll enter them into the files for you and share the updated mod here with everyone. Thank you for your consideration!

v1.15 – Added a new Italian translation thanks to Francesca! Also tested to work with the 1.70 “scared” patch.
French by Denise,
Spanish by Danny,
Swedish and Danish by Camilla,
German by Meike,
Italian by Francesca.
We still need the following translations: Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, Portuguese, and Russian. Please contact me if you’d be willing to provide a translation of these emotion names. Thank you!
This mod will conflict with KawaiiStacie’s Slice of Life mod and any other mod that alters the names of the game’s base emotions. If you have Slice of Life but want to use my mod, just delete her Emotion Names system from the SOL folders.
The first four translations were by four of my friends on Facebook who aren’t Sims players but were nice enough to help me out anyway. Thank you to my dear friends!
