As you control a Sim their Needs have to be filled.

If you fill a motive the bar fills up with green which means they have been satisfied whether for a long period of time or not. The basics motives are Hunger Hygiene Energy Comfort Bladder Social Fun and Environment. If a Sim has neglected a need long enough they go into a Needs Failure in which something happens to the Sim whether they have an embarrassing accident or fall on the floor asleep.
Wants and Fears Return to the directory »
Every Sim has Wants that need to be filled and Fears that you need to avoid. Every Sim has different wants depending on their Turn On's and Off's and their Aspiration. If you complete a want they earn aspirations points which can be used to purchase helpful items. A completion of a want also contributes to the Aspiration Meter which is how the Sim is doing in life. The higher an aspiration the better the Sim is doing and then they can use an aspiration reward.
