Want a long, graceful tail for your favorite kitty or doggie? Or maybe a cute, short tail that's not a stump or stub? Here's a slider for tail length for cats and dogs to let you have them.



Compatibility:
It should go without saying, but you need to have the Pets expansion pack installed to have cats and dogs for the slider to work on!

Notes:
The slider is enabled for child, adult, and elder ages.

It affects cats and dogs only. It works on both big and little dogs, but the effect is a little less obvious on big dogs. It has no effect on curly tails and stumps, and very little effect on stub tails.

Due to a problem with the top of the inner core tail showing through the tail fur for collies, border collies, and borzois in long tails, the package includes a slightly modified tail fur morph for those breeds. It will conflict with any other mod replacing adTailFursCollie_0.simgeom. (I don't know of any.)

There may be slight clipping with the ground in animations when using the longest tail length on fluffy cats.

Install as usual. The slider will appear in the advanced body shape panel.

Additional Credits:
Delphy's bone slider template tool and bone delta editor.

As always, s3pe.

Update 5/19/2012:
Typically, I already have an update. Version 2 adds a separate, slightly longer long-tail morph for big dogs (or rather corrects a bonehead mistake that applied the cat/littledog morph to big dogs); and adds separate puppy and kitten morphs since I figured out how to test and the adult morphs are too extreme for the babies.

Cmar does it again...now it's possible to make even more animal types that don't necessarily come with the game. Love it, and thank you!

Thanks, everyone!

@Natrocity: I hadn't even thought of foxes, but you're right!

@AmberIndia: A height slider will be much more difficult, but at least now we know pet sliders are possible and work pretty much the same way as for human sims.

Once I figure out more of the flags that pet sliders use and how they work in the game - like for breeds - I'll do a short tutorial. And when I do the next version of MorphMaker, it'll include tools for pet bone and geom sliders, and maybe for creating breeds.

I have Pets installed but don't even create pets in my game yet have downloaded this just on the off-chance that I will do some day. :D

You know what the next slider people will start asking for now will be, don't you? Paw Size!

#16 Old 20th May 2012 at 9:05 PM
Just curious... Can you create no tails or tiny nubs with this slider?

It's awesome you found this out. Who knows... next a body length sider... or leg length? Just wondering if my beloved Corgis, Basset hounds and dachshunds could possibly be in the future!

Yes! Thanks for another awesome mod, Cmar!

It always bugged me that there were only a handful of options for tail length on pets, but (once again) modders saved the day!

Does this mean the slider tools have been updated for pets? The equestrian community is dying for some sliders to make ponies.

Sorry, no, this was done by manually changing TGIs, links, and flags. See my post above for more about tools.
