Forechest Slider for Dogs

Correcting EA's silly omissions, one slider at a time. Today I bring you the forechest slider for dogs. This increases how far the dog's sternum pushes out from the body, and thus how prominent the forechest is. Very useful for creating big "chesty" breeds like Dobermans and Weimaraners!

Features
  • Large and small dogs
  • Ages puppy through elder
  • Found in the Body panel
  • Called "Forechest Scale"
  • Only works in the "positive" direction (making the chest bigger than default). The default is so small, that going any smaller would be collapsing the chest. Not a good thing, generally.

Compatibility & Notes
  • Works with all patch levels 1.33 to 1.55. Built in game version 1.42.
  • The slider does work with long fur in the sense that nothing breaks, but it doesn't really do anything once the fur is fairly large. It doesn't seem to "push" the fur outwards.
  • Does not work with cats, do not ask me for a cat version. Requests will be met with sarcasm, or ignored.
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).

Ah, it's the little things that make such a difference. EA's dog breeds are so whittled down you can hardly even tell what they are!

Thanks for correcting this problem.

this is a cool slider! Maybe it will be a good idea to make a slider for height of legs? Like, making legs tall or short, alot of people are looking for it on internet, and i didnt find any as well ><

The appropriate name for this is "barrel-chest". It is when the ribs of a dog round out and are pushed forward during adolescent development. I'm not sure why you would want your dogs to have this, as it causes eating and breathing problems for these animals.

Where is the slider located in C-A-P? I can't seem to find it-- I have it installed into my downloads folder, where all my other mods are.

Insanity-Ascending - As it says in the upload post, it's located in the Body panel of the advanced editing mode.

PharaohHound, I know that the new patch 1.55 has borked some of the human sim sliders, but I assume that your animal sliders remain compatible? Thanks for the confirmation, either way.

SamIAm2 I have experienced issues with one of my leg size sliders (see that thread for details), but I can confirm this slider is working normally.
