I downloaded The Sims 3 for my Android phone, and I've played through almost 2 Sim weeks with my character. My sim works Monday-Friday, and without fail, he will die every other day at work. If he survived work yesterday, he will die today. Period. He's been killed by everything from escaped research monkeys to choking on a pretzel.
Death isn't such a big deal. I just go back to the main screen, select my character, and I'm back. The biggest frustration is that I don't get paid on the days that I die, which means I'm only collecting about half of the Simoleons that I earn. This makes progress in the game very slow, to the point that I'm about ready to give up.
So my question is: can I do something to avoid dying at work, or is it random? If it's random, is it supposed to happen this often, or am I insanely unlucky?
