I have had my adventuring sim (Thomas Truthseeker), go to egypt twice, and china at least 4 times, and not a mummy have we run across thus far! I suppose I should consider myself lucky, because I really like this sim--he is a very good-looking sim, and I would hate it if he got cursed! Has anyone else run into mummies, and if so, how is the best way to deal with them? My sim did buy some escape dust, and mummy snacks, just to be prepared, just in case.

I've only run into a mummy once. It was in China. I forget where, but it was like a long narrow room that had a dive well and like six sarcophagus's in it, three on each side (they look kinda like old dirty refrigerators lol) and one of them- I think the middle one on the right- was blue. The mummy came out of that one. Because the mummy moves slowly and because I had a doorway on each side of that room to get in and out of, I was able to avoid the mummy if I wanted to.

Then my Sim had a wish to defeat a mummy so I saved first just in case Then went back in there to see what would happen and the mummy attacked me. He left my Sim passed out. Fortunately I did not get cursed.

I'm not real impressed with the mummies so far. My sim has been attacked twice, lost both times, no curse. All the other times she just goes about her business, steps around the mummy and opens the treasure chest like normal. The mummies just sort of wander around like they aren't quite sure if they should attack or not. Nothing scarey or anything. Just do your thing and your sim should be fine.

Iwished you could fight it with martial arts, I would've owned that nubfaec.

I only just ran into my first mummy last night when my sim was exploring through the temple of the burning sands. Instead of going straight into the which you need a keystone to unlock I wandered around the far room for a little. There was a switch on the wall (I think) which unlocked a staircase which went down to a passageway with a divewell and a hidden fire trap. Once past that I wandered into another passageway with a number of Sultan's Keep Alls and a sarcophagus at the end. I opened one of the keep alls and it triggered the mummy.

The mummy came and defeated my sim before cursing him so unfortunately I had to drop the adventure for a little and do the sphinx quest as well :\


But you know. Whatevs. I'm wondering if athletic ability has something to do with it?

I love the mummys and all, but

1. They should RESPAWN. IF you fight them or give them a snack, they vanish forever.

2. They should curse more often.

3. We should be able to have wild/violent mummies in our homes if we want to. That way if you got a annoying neighbor, lock them in the basement filled with mummies.

I ran into a mummy, in egypt, she was my Buffy sim, so she easily defeated him in combat, the mummy turned to dust and my sim went about her business.

The annoying thing is that when you get cursed by a mummy, you don't quite become a mummy, your sim just dies. If your sim comes back as a ghost, it will be a mummy in ghost form. To become a mummy, your sim has to collect hidden pieces of a sarcophagus and build it together then sleep in it for a night. Talk about annoying

My sim was exploring the temple of the burning sands and got attacked by a mummy, I tried to sing this song I learned from a little boy in the village `oh where is my mummy?' but my sim was too exhaused to sing it. Just wondering if anyone has done this and if it worked? fortunately she didnt get cursed.

I've ran into mummies about 4 times, and one of those times there were 3 mummies at once(I think it was in an adventure in France). My sim got cursed once already. Also, I found all the pieces for the cursed sarcophogus of kings and had my sim sleep in it for three sim nights, so now I have my own playable mummy. They walk soooooo slow.

Like some people I encountered a mummy in Temple of the Burning Sands, but what I'm trying to figure out is how do you attack it? When I first saw the mummy I was a bit alarmed at first, so I paused the game and tried to click on the mummy, but no actions were available. I just walked over to another room, got hit with the fire trap, and then went upstairs. I kept checking downstairs and the mummy was still there walking around in the same room. How do you attack it, use mummy snacks, or whatever? I couldn't even click on the mummy at all.

Hey Y'all

Butting into your convo here (do forgive me!)
I have to agree with all of ya, not much to do with the Mummies except run around crazily in a frantic motion to pass by 'undetected', I just din't wanna risk it

I however, did manage to find all 5 "Cursed Sarcophigi" fragment pieces and built it.
But this is where it dissapoints me, maybe because My game (pre patch) was acting up, i really dunno, All I know is My sim spent the night in it, then awoke and a 'Popup' appeared informing me "your sims is feeling oddly stronger but not in a good way he appears to have changed"

I was like, but he's STILL a Sim?! so I tried his Gf, same thing happens,
however this time a sparkle or beam of light surrounded her and she VANISHED! searched in vain for her, but alas to no avail
She was Gone, and her Bf JJ was like "I wanna go home now" so I did that, entred the "resetsim" cheat and presto she appeared..but something was amiss with her, she was a ..Yup you guessed it!
A Genuine 'Living Dead' Mummy! but she never even had a chance to explore her new-found ability (if you can even call it that ) when she suddenly and without warning unwravelled into a a pile of dust!
Poof she was gone again this time "resetsim" NEVER worked

I Hate Mummies! but now, with Newly Patched working ( The EA-style "working") Game I plan on uncovering this dilemma and doing it over the exact same way, Hey who knows maybe it'll produce (though highly unlikely) an alternate outcome?!
