Can I set motive decay values differently for just one sim? (e.g. via relativity?)

The original catch all. General game help, banter, things you should probably put in the correct forum, This is the place.

Is there a way to set motive decay values differently for just one sim? (e.g. via relativity?) I like to choose a main sim and make my life a little more difficult with some disadvantages, but I don't want to break the entire family and have everyone suddenly similarly useless and micromanagement-needy

I saw relativity has some nice mechanisms to easily change the decay, and even per population sections and all, but I couldn't figure out how to set it for just one specific sim. is there a way to do it? If not, is there a chance this might ever be added?

Relativity has no options by population section (that I know of). Its purview is the passage of time and its effect on sims, which tends to mean all of them in an entire world. The only mod that is truly selective on sims' behavior and effects of things on their lives (more so what they are pushed around to do) would be StoryProgression but the two mods are so independent that they don't really "know about" each other and SP's main purview is the inactive resident population, not the actively played ones.

I don't think there is any way to achieve the effect you have described. You could give them a lower quality bed and shower to use and lock them out of rooms with particularly fun or higher quality objects, but those are pretty weak implementations to get the effects wanted.

It is possible for a future addition. I'll note it.
