Once you enable whims, you will see little clouds above your Sim in the screen’s bottom-left corner. See what Sims wants, and if you wish to, fulfill the wish, and you will earn the satisfaction points for your Sim. You can remove the whim by click on the “x” on it, and once you remove it, another whim will show up. Also, each time the Sims fulfill the whim, a new one will come up.

Here is how to turn this option on:

  • When the game loads, click on three dots in the top-right corner of the screen
  • You can do the same if you are already playing a household
  • Next, click Game Options
  • In the options, click Gameplay located on the left side of the window
  • Among the Gameplay options, find Show whims and enable it by clicking on the empty box.

That is all. You have enabled whims. You can always turn it off by following the same steps.
