The Sims 3 vampires have some definite advantages over normal sims, including the ability to fight and improved abilities… guess when… at night!
When getting in a fight or brawl with another sim, a vampire rarely loses even if the opponent has athletics or martial arts maxxed out. Due to their physical prowess, vampires in The Sims 3 do not ever get the “Sore” or “Fatigued” moodlet from working out. However, physical strength is only one advantage vampires have over ordinary sims.
The Sims 3 vampires are not ageless as some vampires are. However, they do age MUCH slower. Only young adult and older sims can be true vampires (unless you tune for teens), but once a sim is a vampire the young adult and adult life stages are longer than a normal sim’s lifespan. The elder stage progresses the same (no defined end) and an elder will really get … old.
The Sims 3 vampire has a mental acuity unmatched by ordinary sims, particularly at night. In fact, at night, vampires learn skills at a rate much faster than a regular sim. Further, children or teen sims with the hidden vampire trait finish homework much quicker than typical sims. As if the faster skill acquisition and homework completion were not enough, The Sims 3 vampire also has the ability to affect the romantic feelings of other sims and read the minds of other sims at night. Vampires are successful with romantic interactions more often than not and can even use a new social interaction exclusive to vampires, which is the “Think About Me” interaction. When a vampire uses this on a sim, the influenced sim begins to think about the vampire often resulting in an improved relationship between the sim and vampire and serving as a perfect way to move a relationship beyond the friend stage. To further assist the vampire in romantic endeavors, the vampire has the ability to read the mind of another sim, simply choosing which information to discover about another sim without even talking. This enables the vampire to find out valuable information about another sim in order to tailor a conversation to those discoveries.
