How smart or dumb are zombies in this game?

Will they be able to climb stairs? I thought I read somewhere that they can’t, but I’m not sure.

    Really? If it's that easy to repel zombies I'll just buy a house build on a foundation and put a fence around my lot :)

    I'm pretty sure the zombies will be fairly smart they can do anything a normal sim can do, but with the exception of slowness.

    Hopefully they'll be as thick as an already thick kid who then gets brain damage (really thick)

    Well, they can't open gates and I think they can't climb stairs, The simgurus said they are fairly dumb. Put a fence around your house and you're safe!

    They should be able to break the fences down and swarm you.

    ehhh... the most interactions I've seen for zombies is "Aaarrgghhh" and "Brains" save for eating gardens and shuffling :lol: So i'd imagine they're pretty dumb (at least compared to the ones from Sims 2... they could even Woo-hoo.... sure, no zombie babies... but at least they had woo-hoo :P )
    But I've heard they can't enter locked doors... fences they can *eventually* get thru I think, (and I think they spawn WITHIN your yard too? :shock: ) and stairs... well someone answered that :lol:
    So lock up your home on a full moon!

    It DOES look strange and they DO have routing failures.

    Thank you for posting that picture. I was a little worried that those things could get inside my sim's home. I'm not a zombie fan, but it will sure make things intresting in this game.

    A zombie opened the gate to my garden and ate all my plants. So yes they can open gates.

    You have to manually lock your gate :)

    You can lock the gate so that only sims from your household can open the gate. :)

    So pretty much to sum it up, zombies are pretty dumb since they can't get past doors or locked gates so they kind of just stand around looking dead... sounds fine to me, I'd like to see a little zombie action in the supernatural pack but that not one of the reasons I wanted it.

    I wasn't sure about them climbing stairs until I found 1 sleeping in the rocking chair on my front porch. That one really surprised me,lol. I was even able to tend my tiny garden pot next to the zombie without waking it up. So far, that is the strangest thing I've seen from them.

    find the most annoying part is, they ring the doorbell .. and act like there stuck in front of your door, when you wont let them it .. they start yelling also lol.

    I'd read on here somewhere that they couldn't climb stairs, so I thought my sim was safe on the porch. I was wrong they can climb stairs, but won't enter locked gates, so on full moons I lock my yard and garden gates (incase they spawn in my yard) however, my sims are still safe. I've tried to get attacked, but the zombies in my games are only worried about the plants, I've had a sim feel hunted by a zombie, but nothing happened.
