Please don't kill the animals.

Is this a request from an animal lover, or a tech "it will mess up your game" warning?  I'm going to point a few people at it and the ones who aren't talking about hunting or recipies for cooking strays in the hottub are bound to ask me!

Both. Killing the animals is mean, and also, will do nothing to alleviate character file bloat, as killed sims of any stripe still exist in your files.

Awww.... killing animals is mean JM? They're not real you know? Tongue Ok, so as far as my dumb virgalitype brain was able to understand from this post, strays are being respawned randomly in game wihtout the player actually taking in strays into households? Also when you adopt pets, does the game take them from the pool of strays? (don't recall what the prima guide said, sorry and I just started playing again in a looooooooooooong time so I wouldn't know  Huh)

I'm not really interested in this hack for my current game but since I've been thinking about demolishing all current files and revamping with fresh new hoods, I wouldn't want them to get bloated with stupid animals I won't use. Isn't there a way to make this work tho without making the adoption option a nightmare?

The adoption option will function with and without this. With this hack in place, extra adoption animals are not spawned unless absolutely necessary. Strays will be caught and put in the pound instead.

With the latest version, my game still hangs when I call to adopt.  Yes, I left it alone for over 5 minutes and it was still hung.

I assume that this will still allow us to put up animals for adoption and have them appear in the pool?

Allrighty then! I'll try this out in my current hoods tho when I first got the game I would let my sims run out to greet each and every stray... also the pets, I figured they should make some pet friends ^^

Anyways, thanx for the explanation...

I especially like this!

Does this only happen if the pool is completely empty? Or does it carry a minimum number of animals at all times?

Does this work with Seasons?
and is there a list of hacks/mods that work with seasons that were made for Pets etc?
Im new to the MATY, and I'm having difficultly finding hacks for Seasons that worked in Pets too.

Problem should finally be fixed in current version.

Yay!  It works!  It gave me a choice of 2 identical large breed puppies, 1 small breed puppy, and 3 identical kittens.  I actually don't care!  My Sims can get puppies and kittens now!

Puppies and kittens look the same because they only have a single base coat, so there's no way to know what their final markings will come out as. They also share an identical mesh.

ok I have a sensible question.  I have just put this back in the game, but I'm peeved that once you adopt the puppies or kittens, they disappear, and you only have adult animals to adopt.  So then the only way you can satisfy the puppy or kitten want is to breed 2 adults.  This pisses me off and I would like a way around it.

If this hack is in place when you created the hood (or played it for the first time with Pets), you shouldn't get a ton of strays/adoptable adults.  That means when all the puppies and kittens have been adopted, you'll get new ones automatically.  I assume there will be a giant pause when they regenerate...
