Lifetime Wishes: Possession is Nine Tenths of The Law, Master Thief, Living in the Lap of Luxury
Kleptomaniacs don't mind to steal from anyone. They can only do it at night, unfortunately ,but they can swipe just about anything. How to Steal: Visit a Sim's house, or a public place after hours (when it's getting dark) and click a location near something you want to steal and select Swipe Something. They'll try to grab something nearby.

Sims can make a living this way, selling objects they steal from others. It's great for a thief Sim. Beware, your Sim can be arrested for stealing! Thankfully it's no major consequence. A weird quirk of this trait, is that Sims can return a stolen item and get a nice +15 mood boost for 8 hours. I guess they feel good when they overcome their urge and return the property. The Sims 3's Ambitions expansion adds the Posession is Nine Tenths of the Law Lifetime Wish, which is unique to Kleptos.

Game Description

  • Throughout life, your Sim will be prone to swipe others' things. It's genetic!

Does anyone know if pregnant sims can swipe things? Or is it the more likely thing that my female is glitching?
