TS3WA Icon Martial Arts TS3WA Render 2Two Sims sparring Martial Arts skill iconMartial arts skill is a skill introduced in The Sims 3 World Adventures. The trait Disciplined increases its learning rate. Sims can train at the Phoenix Academy of Martial Arts in Shang Simla. However, Sims may purchase a training dummy, Board Breaker, and books to train at home. Sims get different color belts at different levels, just as real martial artists do, and apparently, Sims are using The Black Tiger-Kung Fu (or in this case Sim Fu) style. Meditation Edit At Level 5, Sims may also Meditate to increase the martial arts skill as well. Meditating for one hour will cause a “Meditative Focus” moodlet to appear. The positive moodlet starts with a duration of 15 minutes and increases as the Sim continues to mediate, maxing out at just over 4 hours of focus for around 2.5 hours of meditation; the Sim receives no further focus for continued meditation. If the Sim stops meditating and then restarts, the Meditative Focus moodlet will not begin increasing its duration again until the Sim has continued to meditate for an hour straight. When the Meditative Focus moodlet reaches 4 hours in duration, the Sim will glow with a green aura, levitate, and may choose to “Zeneport” to any location on the map, which will remove the focus moodlet and end the meditation. Receiving the Master of Meditation (MOM) challenge will also allow the Sim to teleport via “Tranquil Transference”, which can be used at any time the Sim has more than 30 minutes of focus remaining, at the expense of 30 minutes of focus (i.e. 2 hours of focus allows 4 Transferences if no time is wasted between teleports). The animation for Tranquil Transference is nearly instant, as opposed to Zeneport, which required almost a half hour of slowly fading out, then back in, and standing back up. Once MOM is achieved, Zeneport is no longer possible, forcing the Sim to rely on Tranquil Transference. Fighting Edit At level 8, sims will start to focus their chi into their attacks while sparring and perform some rigorous techniques like a flurry of jumping kicks or a single powerful roundhouse kick while airborne. Sims who have reached level 7 in the martial arts skill can teach other Sims as well. Once a Sim develops their skill to level 1, they are able to spar with other Sims. By choosing the ‘Spar’ interaction on another Sim, Sims are able to build up their Martial Arts and Athletic skills in a friendly training session, which also steadily increases relationship. After reaching level 4 in the skill, they can enter one of Shang Simla’s Martial Arts tournaments. To enter a tournament, pick up the phone and choose ‘Challenge Spar Tournament Contender’. Now a rival can be chosen and declare a ‘Ranked Sparring Match’. After the match, the Sim may even advance a rank! The mummies in Al Simhara all have their martial arts skill on level 10. Your Sim should learn Martial Arts before they go to Al Simhara to lower the risk of getting cursed by the Mummy. When two Sims are engaged in unfriendly fighting with each other, having a skill point in Martial Arts is what’s important; it doesn’t matter how skillful a Sim is in Martial Arts. If one of the Sims has the Martial Arts skill of at least level 1, but the other Sim does not, the Sim with the Martial Arts skill always wins regardless of any factors that may increase the chance to win a fight. The chance a Sim wins a fight based on Athletic skill, traits, and other factors only apply if both or neither Sims have Martial Arts skill. Challenges Edit There are several challenges for martial arts which Sims can complete to unlock rewards.
