When fighting occurs a cartoon-styled cloud of smoke will appear and obscure most of the fighting. Sims with higher Body [TS][TS2] or Athletic skill [TS3] skill are more likely to win the fight. A police officer and a burglar will fight if the police are summoned during a burglary. [TS2][TS3]
In The Sims, the cloud of smoke will completely obscure the fight.
If a Sim loses a fight, they will leave the neighborhood forever. Children can also have fights, but they will never leave town if they lose.
In The Urbz: Sims in the City, Fight can be chosen regardless of relationship.
The Sims 2 and The Sims StoriesEdit
Fights in The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories are a little more graphic and violent. Sims are now visible through the cloud of smoke, and will use a wide array of professional and comical fighting techniques. Sims with higher body skills are more likely to win fights.
During a fight, other Sims will react based on their personality. Mean Sims will taunt the fighters, nice Sims will be concerned, and shy Sims will run and hide. If one Sim cheers for a certain Sim in a fight, he/she is more likely to win.
If a Sim catches their children fighting, they will lecture the child.
After a fight, the Sims involved get a memory of winning or losing a fight.
The Sims 3Edit
Fighting returns in The Sims 3 with a few changes. Besides high Athletic skill, Sims with the Evil or Mean Spirited traits are more likely to win fights. On the other hand, Cowards and Losers are less likely to win fights. The Martial Arts skill improves winning chances even more. [TS3:WA]
If a Sim wins a fight, they will receive the 'Winner' moodlet. If they lose, they receive the 'Humiliated' and 'Sore' moodlets.
If the Sim is not Mean Spirited, the social is "Fight". If the Sim has the Mean Spirited trait, the social is "Beat up". Like other Mean and Fight socials, the Sim can be kicked out if visiting. With Late Night, the Sim may also be Publicly Disgraced. Also in Late Night, Sims can start a brawl at a nightclub. Brawls are like a regular fight but it can involve more than two Sims and will last for a bit longer. The Sim, or Sims, that lose a brawl will be forced to leave that nightclub for the rest of the evening.
- Sims never fight to the death, so don't worry if your Sim gets into a fight.
- In The Sims 3, some Sims will laugh at the loser if a fight breaks out, especially Sims with the Evil trait.
- Sims with high Athletic skill have a higher chance of winning fights.
- Sims with Mean Spirited trait will almost always win fights.
