This is a crow or possibly raven I know there are differences but I think this bird could pass for either.
I think I got all the GUIDS changed so hopefully there will be no issues there. Obviously please let me know if there are. Also so far as I know you should only need pets for this to work.
Of course your sims will still open the non-existent cage door and such but I certainly was not about to mess with the animations to change that. The crow still sounds like a parrot...oh well it isn't so bad really. The wings look a little odd while folded but I did everything I could think of and this is the best I was able to get and at least they aren't upside down anymore! In flight everything looks great.
Klinnys wonderful pet uploads were my inspiration for this. She helped me a great deal throughout the process so all thanks should really go to her and Corvidophile2 who also helped me bunches. In fact the tree texture I used is one Corvidophile2 sent me because mine were giving me all kinds of problems.
This is my first attempt at an object for the sims2. I am not totally unhappy with the result though to be truthful by this point after working on this off and on for over a month I mostly just wanted it to be done. I know it is far from perfect but I hope noone will be too harsh. Believe me I am most likely well aware of any flaws you might notice.
Anyway I hope people enjoy my silly bird.
Caw Caw bang *#@% I'm done...
