The Sims 2: FreeTimeEdit
Basketball returns in The Sims 2: FreeTime with the H-O-R-S-E of course Basket Ball Hoop.[n 1] It builds Body skill, increases Sims' fitness, and builds enthusiasm for the Sports hobby. One or two Sims can play, and will take turns making baskets from different angles, but cannot play an actual game.
Sims will change into athletic wear when playing. If a Sim autonomously decides to shoot hoops, he or she will continue walking to the court even if the player cancels the action.[n 2]
The object includes both the goal and the court, and it can be placed on flooring or terrain. There are two versions, one with a green court, and one in which the court is invisible. It must be placed outdoors because the top of the goal is higher than the top of a wall. However, it is possible to build an indoor basketball court by either placing the object first, then building a two-story (or higher) structure around it, or by using the moveobjects cheat.
The name is a reference to the variation of basketball known as H-O-R-S-E, and the saying that "a horse is a horse, of course".
The Sims 3 Edit
Basketball returns in the store set known as Level Up, which contains a functioning basketball hoop. As in The Sims 2: FreeTime, Sims will change into athletic wear when playing. If a Sim autonomously decides to shoot hoops, he or she will continue walking to the court even if the player cancels the action. There are two types of actions; practice dunking and a challenge basketball contest.
