The Sims[]

The life of crime career track is one of the ten basic career tracks for The Sims. Like "X-treme Career", it is a solid mid-range career track, with average pay at every rank and requiring an average number of friends to reach maximum rank. This job may be available in computers or the newspapers. In The Sims (console), this career is locked at the start and can be unlocked by apprehending a burglar in Get a Life.

1) Pickpocket
<Sim> hits the crowded downtown streets and immerses himself/herself in the steady flow of banker types and wealthy socialites, all ripe for the picking.

Hours into his/her day, he/she realizes that he's/she's been neglecting the canary, and when he/she goes to check on it in the trunk, discovers it lying motionless at the bottom of its cage. <Sim>'s in trouble, and can't possibly admit the truth to the parties involved.

The Vice squad has been breathing down <Sim>'s neck, and the consumer affairs committee has launched an aggressive television ad campaign warning would-be victims to the dangers of recent confidence schemes. <Sim> has a few tricks left up his/her sleeve though. A contact has offered him/her some office space that might work well as the pretext for a classic vacation time-share scam (a sure fire way to swindle the elderly out of their retirement funds), or seeing as times are tough, <Sim> could go with the old door-to-door insurance policy scheme.

Also, they only managed to make it out with 20K in hard currency. Thinking that the cops might be on to them, and therefore onto their escape route, <Sim> decides to change the plan, but isn't sure whether to take the turnpike or head down the narrow section of cobblestone surface streets.

The Sims 3[]

Criminal is one of the basic career tracks in The Sims 3. Sims can be employed from the newspaper, computer, or abandoned warehouse. Sims work at a syndicate named "The Organization," as stated in the descriptions. It has two branches, which are "thief" and "evil". Evil branch requires the Sims to build a good relationship with their boss while also building up a bit of logic skill, and the thief branch requires Sims to build relationships with their accomplices and has even more athletic skill requirements than the evil branch. Occasionally, Sims in the higher levels of this career in both the thief or evil branches will sometimes "stash" a decorative item while at work, which then can be placed around the home permanently or sold for extra money.

Sims who join the thief branch will immediately gain the ability to "sneak", and once the Sim reaches level 10 of the thief branch, they will receive The Golden Fox statue which will grant the Master Thief an "I am the Greatest" moodlet for several hours. Sims who reach level 10 of the evil branch (Emperor of Evil) will receive a red aura of evil. Sims with the good, friendly, and family-oriented traits and Sims in law enforcement will boo in disapproval, and the Emperor of Evil's lifetime relationship with them will decrease due to the aura's effect. Cowards, losers, neurotic, and over-emotional Sims will run away from the aura, but evil, mean spirited, and insane Sims as well as other Sims who work in the criminal career without any of the "good" traits will cheer for the Emperor and will be granted a boosted relationship with the Sim.

Performance tones
  • Business as Usual
  • Work Hard - Increases performance faster but adds stress
  • Take It Easy - Increases fun but lowers performance
  • Meet Accomplices - Meets new co-workers
  • Conspire with Accomplices - Builds relationship with co-workers
  • Grovel to Leader - Builds relationship with the boss
  • Practice Illicit Activities - Increases athletic skill
  • Sleep in Hideout - Increases energy need
  • Do a Side Job - Earns extra cash

Additionally, there is a slight chance that the Sim will be arrested while at work. Being arrested will cause Sims to miss work and lose their work performance. Sims with the lucky trait or Sims higher up in the levels of the criminal career will be less likely to be arrested. While in jail, Sims can do the following things:

  • Doing time
  • Work Out - Increases athletic skill
  • Hang with Inmates - Builds relationship with coworkers
  • Play with Dominoes - Increases fun need

Glitches[]

  • There is a bug in Sunset Valley that makes Sims unable to enter the Outstanding Citizen Warehouse Corp. as an International Super Spy or even as a criminal to go to work. This can be fixed by deleting everything on the lot (including the building), and placing a new Outstanding Citizen Warehouse Corp. building on the lot.
  • The arrested Sim can either get out of jail or stop going to jail en route when they bladder is low. The Sim in question will walk out of the jail or leave the police car and wet themselves, but they won't have to back in.[confirmation needed]
  • The arrested Sim can also get out of jail if someone calls them before he enters. The call will override the go to jail action and even if the Sim rejects the call, they won't go to jail.
  • There is a glitch on the level 3 Thug rank after promotion, in which a PC Sim is required to go to work on Wednesday at 9pm on the 2nd week and thereafter even though they are not scheduled to work on that day. The PC Sim will not get a notice to go to work until work has started. The player can also go down in performance and get demoted if they do not go to work on that day. In addition, the player will not go up in performance if they do go to work. The player can get out of going to work that day unnecessarily by calling and taking 1 day of unpaid leave after promotion.
  • At times, if the NPC boss is not at work or comes late to work, the PC Sim will not get an increase in performance until the NPC boss comes to work. The PC sims will be stuck on the "Going to Work" status until the NPC boss arrives. To make matters worse, the PC Sim will not go up in performance and can still go down in performance if they leave work early. Certain events will not transpire nor will rewards be received until the NPC boss comes to work.
  • Another glitch is from level 4 Getaway Driver upwards when a Sim goes to work (starts at 9pm), but increase of job performance does not start and the working status stays as "Going to Work" until 12 midnight. Leaving work and going back does not make any difference.
