Since getting Get Together I've seen townies randomly fighting each other and my sim. I've seen it happen once, maybe twice, during a night of game play but last night my sim was attacked four times. I only have the base game with Get Together and Jungle Adventure and was playing only one sim in the household which I almost always do. I play with autonomy off otherwise my sims would drive me freakin insane. I've googled this and read the old posts and didn't see any solution to this.
Been in a real loner mood so till last night my sim had done the Rags to Riches thing then been pretty much staying at home cranking out aspirations and skills and using the reward points to lock down his needs and pick up other improvements. Last night I got bored enough to venture out but opted to observe the townies from afar.
- First time he was attacked my attention was elsewhere when I noticed a confident moodlet pop up that essentially said, "Kicked her butt". Wait, what?! Looked in his relationship list and saw a towny I had not seen before with their relationship midway in the red. Decided to make it final and drove it all the way red.
- Second time I saw Nancy Landgraab walk up to my sim and attack him. I had read that with enough mean interactions you can make them die from extreme anger and decided to try this on Nancy. Worked at it for a while and had her extremely uncomfortable with an obvious need for a shower but she managed to slip off the edge of the area and disappear.
- Third time it was an old woman trying to attack my sim. Already had testingcheats on so I reset her then moved my sim away, she stood there for a while then went after my sim again. Being just a few hours till his work time I just sent my sim home.
- Fourth time a new guy attacked and I used the testingcheats to pull him into my household then edited the household and deleted him. Noticed he had the Evil trait but don't recall the others.
This is equal parts annoying and amusing. If anyone knows how to stop this autonomous fighting I welcome the solution, but I'm also curious about other's experiences with this.
