Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Chances are that at some point, your sims have been robbed. And most likely, when it happened, you wished that your sims had the ability to retaliate (especially the ones who spend their days as police, soldiers, or superheroes). Well, now they can. This mod takes the burglar-attacking behavior of werewolves (including the taking back of stolen items) and extends it to all sims. It also changes the aftermath dialog slightly to reflect the fact that it's no longer necessarily a werewolf who beat the snot out of the burglar.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Brilliant! Thank you, I've never had a werewolf so I've never even seen them fight back!

What a cool idea. It annoys me when my police or criminal master mind sims just stand there watching.
Does this make fighting the burglar an option so your sim can decide to fight or decide to wait for the police? Also wondering does the outcome rely on body points or does the household always win even with no body points?

I have the same question as joandsarah77. Do body points affect the fight?
OK you've answered it. Thanks.

Thanks for the download.

It's just like for the werewolf; they only fight if you tell them to, and victory is determined in the same way as any other fight.

Thank you very much for this!! It bugs my socks off when Captain Hero just looks on biting his or her nails while their house get robbed. Now the burglars of SimCity have better beware!

Boy, did I want this ten minutes before I logged on and found it. The Albany Capp family was robbed. I've been loading them up with body points. Too late for them, but thank you for this mod!

So I downloaded the mod and now I keep sending everyone to bed at like 10pm, hoping a burglar will show up. Can't wait for one of my Sims to kick some burglar butt! Thanks for sharing!

This is absolutely fantastic!
I always felt extremely frustrated that my sims - specially the ones in police career or with a strong body - couldn't take care of their own home! Now they can, thanks to you.

This is fab! Now I can finally have my goody two-shoes wife beat up the burglar for stealing that fountain that her husband gave her after their first date XD

This sound great ! I have two questions please, even if the Sims fight the burglar will the police still come and take them away ? Also I notice you have that it work with Pets Expansion ( which I do have ) but will it work with Seasons ? That is the very last Ep I have installed that run my Sims game.

It works exactly like it does for werewolves. I literally did nothing except disable the piece of code that prevents non-werewolves from being able to do the interaction (and I changed one string). Everything else is exactly the same.

As long as you have Pets installed, it'll work.
