Default How to keep a deer as a pet?
Is there any mod or cheat to add a deer into active household? I read that you can edit its skin in CAP and then edit your horse and choose the deer skin. But does this really work?

Wouldn't that be a horse with deer skin?

surely a horse would be too big? you cant add the actual deer to the family as it have no needs or animations for eating from bowls or using stalls

In this video, someone apparently did it, however he does not make entirely clear how: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHo8SMqffuY.

What I was refering to was this:

Find a deer in the wild.

Shift+click; edit in CAS

Save sim deer in your bin (option offered by clicking the "..." button by portrait in CAS)

Add a horse to your family; edit horse in CAS

open premade sims (button with lots of faces on it) and select the deer skin.


I also found this advice on the Sims 3 forum. I agree however, that it shouldn't work normally.

The deer in Pets hop like kangaroos. Granted, far from realistic (actually, I think they look pretty stupid, but that's just me), but at least it does differentiate them. Horses don't hop. It would be a bit like that film, I believe it was Sheena: Queen of the Jungle, where the star was supposed to be riding a zebra, except it was so clearly a horse, painted with zebra stripes, that all credibility in her "magical" background was ruined.

It's bad enough the unicorn is just a horse with a horn and a beard. Granted, it does have a few fun powers, and does great competing at the Equestrian Center, but it otherwise acts like every other horse in the game. Making a horse into a deer, IMHO, just doesn't cut it.

Ok, I figured it out. Ha ha, OMG.

HOW TO HAVE A PET DEER OR RACOON

1) Install awesomemod.
2) Select a deer/raccoon with Awesome's right-click switching. Without this mod I don't know how to select deers.
3) If it's a deer, cheat to give it three horse traits, example addtrait fast
If it's a raccoon, give it three cat traits
4) Take it to CAH with editsim
5) From the ... menu, save a copy of it. Exit CAH.
6) Create a new animal sim. Choose a horse if you want a deer, and a cat if you want a raccoon.
7) Go to the pre-made sims bin, and select your chosen animal.
8) Place them in a household with an existing sim already in it. If you remove the sim from the household the wild pets disappear.

I'd love to try and get a deer, but the Awesomemod is a problem. Are you sure the deer in the family won't crash the game eventually?

^ This.

How do they eat/sleep or do other things? Or are they just stuck kangarooing around the lot?

When you see a deer on your property, build a fence around it. Lock the gate to everybody but the sim you want to be able to pet (or whatever) the deer. :P

Too bad I've tried that several times. Only because I hadnt realized that it doesnt work. It works with a raccoon, not deer. Deer just teleport away. I cant get anything to work to get a deer into my household

Do you think I should upload a savedsims folder that contains 2 deer and a racoon, so that you don't have to cheat at all?

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

INSTRUCTIONS
1) Merge my savedsims folder with yours.
2) Go to CAH. Under 'Pre-made sims' select the animal. Their body will look warped. Accept and exit CAH.
3) Place animals into a household that has a human sim. It is not clear yet how to remove the human from the 'family'. Perhaps hide them in a locked basement.

*Twallan has said 'wild-only families' are noted as a potential future mod feature.

If anyone wants to upload it to MTS officially, go ahead.

Tizerist. I love you. that is all. You are a hero, and a King. One further question, can anyone conceive of a way to edit the deer in any way - or even to enable the Create a pet options? they don't appear at the side. The only way i can think of would be a default replacement of the deer skin, but i have no idea how to do that yet. Is there a simpler way? im wanting to edit the deers to look like gazelle/springbok for an amazing african world a creator has nearly finished (ziwa bonde on the sims 3 exchange - incredibly good) and he's managed to edit wild horses to look like Zebra, and the deer do a leaping gazelle thing anyway and they'd look so cute hopping along the plains. Any ideas?

Here are threads detailing how to get the NPC animals as well as including a template.

http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=481602 - Raccoon
http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=481023 - Deer

Make sure the Deer has a pond or grass. DO NOT put the Deer on a houseboat(Unless you use the cheat to edit all floors and make a pool) or indoors, it will starve and the social worker will take it away,

These are real Raccoons/Deers, NOT Horse/Cat reskins.

Each Sim since Pets has a race. I.E,Sim race, Dog race, Cat race, Horse race.
Raccoons and Deers have their own separate race.

I just used NRASS mod to get the racoon, and it acted like a cat.. completley, the animations were the same as the cat, including traits. But i shouldn't expect the races to be completley different.

#22 Old 28th Dec 2013 at 12:48 PM
The real versions do not act like a cat. The game contains 6 races.
1. Sim 2. Cat 3. Dog 4. Horse 5. Raccoon 6. Deer

The latter two are pretty incomplete and limited in their ability to do things. (I always hope a modder would expand them)
The most common way to have a cat or a deer is usually to smack the Raccoon outfit on a cat, or the Deer outfit on a foal.
This does NOT result in the actual Raccoon or Deer.

Cosmetically, yes. They might act like a cat. But technically, raccoons and deer are unique species of their own, like Gurluas always said. Their codes are incomplete because they're only meant to be limited as NPCs.

Is it really functional? Mind explaining the details? Also, why are their motives unnamed in the screenshots?
