Learning to teleportEdit
In Takemizu Village or custom far-east vacation destinations, a ninja NPC may randomly teleport into the lot. He'll hop around for a little while, teleporting, and if a Sim clicks on him the only option is "Learn to Teleport." If the player chooses this, the ninja will ask a question with two answers. This question works like a chance card, where each answer has a chance of being correct or incorrect. If the answer is correct, the Sim will permanently gain the ability to teleport.
After correctly answering the ninja's question, the option "Teleport Here" will be added to the menu that appears when clicking on the ground. When this is selected, the Sim will back-flip into a puff of smoke and reappear over the destination. As with teleportation via Magivestium,[TS2:AL] this will surprise Sims who are standing around when it happens.
Ninja-style teleportation is faster than walking, but has the same limitations; it does not allow Sims to teleport to locations that are not accessible via walking. For example, if a room has no doors or a fenced area has no gates, it cannot be teleported into. This also applies to doors that the teleporting Sim cannot simply walk through, such as the Very Mysterious Shelving[TS2:AL] or opposite-gender doors. A mod which allows ninja-style teleportation to inaccessible areas has been made.
- Even if the ninja asks the same questions, the correct answers are always different.
- With the testingcheatsenabled cheat, when using the mailbox to get an NPC, the ninja is one of the options. This means the Sim can learn how to teleport from him without having to go to Takemizu Village.
- There's a slight 2% difference between the outcome of the chance card. The weight of the correct answer for the chance card is 51% for option A and 49% for option B.
- Letting the chance card time out has a good chance of automatically defaulting to the correct answer.
