Grrr to Maxis prudishness
« on: 2006 October 27, 07:54:14 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

In what strange world do animals have to be friends to make more animals??   Roll Eyes

Does this bug the living snot out of anyone else?  I almost roared when I read this in one of the chats.  And not just friends with each other, but friends of the sims too??  And they have to be TOLD to mate???   Angry

Someone... and I really don't give a (wom)rat's ass who... REALLY needs to fix this.  Animals are... well... animals... and should mate randomly with whoever.

Take this as a request or don't.

Beats me. In the real world, animals tend to mate whenever it happens to be mating season and they find a compatible mate.

And not just friends with each other, but friends of the sims too??  And they have to be TOLD to mate???   Angry
Well, it's either mating only when told to, an uncontrolled mass explosion of animals which consumes your neighborhood in a big fiery ball visible from space, or having to spay/neuter your animals.

Someone... and I really don't give a (wom)rat's ass who... REALLY needs to fix this.  Animals are... well... animals... and should mate randomly with whoever.
Well, being "friends" may be a bit much, although if animals randomly mate, we'd also need to be able to spay/neuter them. I guess that level of realism wasn't what Maxis wanted to deal with. This sounds a lot like Jeffy's territory, though.

It was probably done to make it a challenge to get your pets to mate. Maybe eventually ACR will include autonomous random pet mating.

Although, in fairness, the scores don't have to be that high for the pets to mate. My eskie and her mate got it on at less than 50 ltr.

Not sure if this is possible, but maybe this is a call for two new hacks?

No Friendship Required for Pet Mating

and

Spay/Neuter that can add a token to a single pet making any attempts to copulate fail.

Well you'd really only need a always fail try for a baby for pets if they could do it autonomously. Otherwise there's not much point really unless you like to watch animals go at it, but it's not like you actually see anything anyway.

It would be cool if male cats sprayed on the furniture unless they were neutered though. Wink

Yeah, I agree with the no friendship thing. I just know that I can't be arsed to befriend my animals. It sounds dull. Animals don't need to be bought a drink first.  Wink

I would rather have crazy amounts of unwanted pets making my neigbourhood a BFBVFS than the maxis alternative.

It would be cool IRL if neutering would make male cats STOP spraying on the furniture.

I guess you mean fail to produce offspring... the alternative is going to require pet therapists!

Oh and since we're into pet sex - can you tweak their gender preference?

I was also asked on another board if servos could mate with pets....  "definitely not if you don't have Pets and OFB"......

twojeffs, If you make an ACR extension to handle motherlode in real, for sure I would pay zillions for it!! (easy, typing motherlode a few times) Grin

... or you could just not have dog houses on the lot, lock your bitches up, etc...

It's good to know I'm not alone in my frustration with this.
