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.

I haven't tested it with that, but a cursory glance at the code for each mod shows that they change different files, so they shouldn't conflict.

Heh, I've never played a werewolf so I had no idea they could attack burglars. I'm still not interested in playing a werewolf but I'd love to be able to attack a burglar instead of standing there crying so I think this is awesome. Thanks!

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



Thank you for taking the time to reply back.

It's not a problem.

Amazing what you can do by changing one line of code and a string, eh?

Thanks, I've never had a werewolf fight a burglar so I wasn't sure how that worked.

Thanks for this! I already have this installed in my game alongside the weekly burglar hack.
Just a little suggestion, its cool that you can attack the burglars w/o needing to call the police, but everytime you attack them, the burglars will always give your items back even if you actually lose the fight! It will be extremely cool if they will take away your items if you lose and will only give the items back if you win. Can you make this work that way? I dont know anything about BHAV modding but i guess that's possible coz that's how it works if the police manage to defeat the buglar. I hope you can update it. :D
