One thing that always bugged me about The Sims 2 and 3 was you never got to see the burglar. In the Sims 1 burglars pretty much always came unless you had a burglar alarm, but when 2 came out, EA figured we didn't want to see burglars anymore, yet they added a bunch of cool functions to it, like apprehending them and all. Well EA added even more functions to burglars in The Sims 3, but still the percentage was just too low (0.25%) That's not even one percent! In all my time playing The Sims 3 I never once even saw a burglar until I put in my mod. This mod will increase the chances that a burglar will come to your house after everyone is asleep for a few hours. When I was searching the internet to see if this mod had been made before, I came across a lot of cool mods having to do with burglars, but never one that would increase your chances of getting one. I've searched everywhere I know to look, and couldn't find one, though it's possible one has been made before. This is my version of this mod. Also, about the cheat force NPC, that is different than this. That will spawn a burglar at will, this controls the percentage the burglar will show up every night.

This is a global mod that effects all burglars in all worlds.

Only use one of these together at a time!

I saw plenty of burglars in The Sims 3, however, not a single one in The Sims 2.

Yet, a 10% chance of burglar seems reasonable. Thanks

I was also wondering if this will need updating for the new patch and or Fast Lane Stuff? I saw a Burglar the first evening in a house I was playing after putting this in and since updating to the new patch and installing Fast Lane Stuff, no burglar. I put in the 100 percent chance. I don't know if it needs updating. I wish I knew how to check and update mods for myself.

Had this game for a week and I managed to get robbed two times. I'm not sure why you would want more burglars. They disturb your sim's sleep and sometimes you might not be able to apprehend them.

I thought buglars was gone because I didn't see them. I always had a burglar visit my sims 2 household but not 3...LOL I seriously thought it was left out.

I believe the chance of burglary is determined by whether or not you have a burglar alarm in your house, be it inside or outside, but I'm just guessing "ONLY"!! As for me, I've had the game since it's been out, and too have yet to see a burglary since then. I have more kitchen fires due to no cooking skills (and even that is hardly possible since after cooking one meal, you pretty much already gain a cooking point whereas that's good enough to prevent fires, only burn food often...sucks!!)

I actually tried it both ways and that's the only way I actually got MAYBE 2 appearances of burglary (without burglar alarms on the lot). So, maybe I'll try the most frequent percentage first, that way I can catch up for ALL the time between now and when the game first came out. Then, I'll go to the least percentage to continue normal game play. :D

Is this compatible with the latest updates/Late Night? Also, is it compatible with other core mods (most notably Awesomemod)? I don't think Awesomemod affects burglary but I can't be sure. I also use Twallan's NRAAS story and woohooer mods. I'd appreciate knowing compatibility before downloading. (:

Yeah. But when I got The Sims 2, first family I was playing were Caliente sisters. I was just so excited about the game, I was going on community lots, socialising... etc. ..., and I totally forgot about the burglars. And on Caliente Sisters' lot, there's 100% chance of burglar.

It scared s*** out of me!!! Expecially the music... Sorry, but I don't want to use your mod...

My household is currently forever stuck being robbed. The burglar disappeared. I'm not sure if it's due to the mod or not.

1) How can I reset my household so that they can buy/build things, and my soon-to-be young adult will be able to move? I'm pretty sure there's a "reset lot" cheat, but I'm not sure how much is actually reset.

2) So does anyone know if it's the mod? If it is, is there a method of uninstalling other than deleting the file (which I found that I can only do once the game stops thinking I'm still being robbed).

If you haven't already found a solution, then you can use resetsim on the burglar, assuming you know his/her name.

Oddly enough, I have a problem with too many burglars! (They come at least once a day, sometimes more.)

In 1.31, a burglar robbed my house blind and made my Sim more poor than she already was. Since updating to 1.32, I haven't seen the burglar yet, and I'm using the 75% chance version.

Has anyone else using this with the 1.32 patch seen the burglar yet?

ETA: Nevermind, I got robbed 2x while playing yesterday. Haha! I really should get a security alarm.

Jon, saw you posted a dishes fixes for The Sims 2. Glad you're back - you were missed. I hope you update this. I'm sure it needs it. I love this mod. I like getting the burglar since I hardly see him/her.

andistyr, someone already updated this mod. It's actually a better version of it in my opinion. It's here on MTS. Just look at the first page of Sims 3 game mods, and you will see it. Sorry, I can't create for Sims 3 anymore until I figure out why my game is running so slow all of a sudden.
