Leg Size Sliders for All Pets

Oh EA, you frustrate me to no end. Horses have no sliders to change their lower leg and hoof size, dogs have a foreleg slider that makes them look like a mutant, and poor cats have nothing at all!

When I saw CmarNYC's new tutorial for making pet body sliders (check that out here), I immediately knew that I had to make these sliders.



Features
Included are 6 separate sliders: Foreleg and Hind Leg adjustments for each species.
  • Works on all ages, including puppies, kittens and foals
  • Dogs and horses: Found in the Legs panel in Create-a-Pet, named Lower Foreleg Scale and Lower Hind Leg Scale
  • Cats: Found in the Body panel in Create-a-Pet, named Foreleg Scale and Hind Leg Scale
  • Dogs and cats: Sliders allow leg sizes both larger than the EA default, and smaller
  • Horses: Sliders allow adjustments larger than the EA default only
  • Separate packages for each species, so you can choose which ones you need
  • Works correctly with all feathering and hair on the legs
  • No clipping with most animations

Compatibility
Compatible with 1.33 through 1.50.
Built with game version 1.33.
Note for CC Magic/Package merging!
I have had issues with the sliders not appearing if merged when other pet sliders are installed. For CC Magic users, I strongly recommend you install these in the legacy folder (My Documents/EA/Sims 3/Mods/Packages).

Issues
  • Slight clipping may occur with certain animations, most noticeably when dogs and cats sit down, but it's hard to notice in normal gameplay. Clipping occurs in this game even without my sliders.
  • Horses: When set to high values, feathering may clip between the legs (particularly the hind legs).
  • Horses: In foals only, the sliders seem to cause a band of darker colour at the bottom of the hoof; I don't know what causes this and haven't been able to fix it, but it's not distracting in normal gameplay.

Thanks and Credits
A huge thanks to the amazing CmarNYC. Without her wonderful tutorial, I would have never been able to make this.

Made with S3PE, Delphy's Slider Template tool, Blender, and Delphy's BoneDelta Editor.

Oh my god I didn't even know this existed. I've only been playing sims for over a decade, you'd think I'd have this stuff figured out by now Well, once again, THANK YOU!

As I've mentioned several times to other people, I've put it on the to-do list, but I'm not sure when I'll have time to do it. Glad you like the sliders!

This is great, thank you! I always wondered why the draft horse breeds had such skinny legs; I know from seeing them that their legs are actually very sturdy and thick.

This looks very nice, but could you perhaps make a leg length mod? The dogs drive me crazy, a West-Yorkshire Terrier should in no way be as tall as a Poodle... etc... a Great Dane and Rhodesian Ridgeback should tower over German Shepherd Dogs... please please please?

Hey kiddo are you going to update to patch 1.42? I know that you didn't have to update with the other patches, but apparently this patch actually broke a lot of custom content that previously was ok. From what Twallan said it is due to there being significant change in the code. I just don't want to put it back in until its been tested on a test PC and right now my test computer is currently getting fixed for two weeks so I can't test it . I love your mods and can't stand playing without them lol. :D

I'm going to be looking into compatibility of all my CC over the weekend (this week is going straight to "crazy-busy land" for me :P). So glad you like it, hope to get it fully tested and compatible soon.

I'm not entirely clear what you're issue is. If the files you download literally contain no .package files, try redownloading them. If you don't know how to install .package files, check the guide in the Install Instructions tab.

Why did EA not give us a body weight slider for pets? *sigh*

Is there a particular reason the horse sliders only make their legs bigger?
