Compatible with patch 1.55. (The patch didn't change the XML file this used.)

Tired of going to spots where you know gems and metals are supposed to spawn, and instead you're only seeing a whole bunch of dog digging sites? Getting frustrated because your Sim has no dogs, so more and more of the dig sites are appearing in your world, until it seems that's all that's left?

Be frustrated no more, because this mod can reduce the spawn rate, or even prevent dig sites from spawning completely.

NOTE: This will NOT delete any currently existing dig sites. You will need to do something else in order to delete any existing dig sites in your game.

There are several flavors - choose only one for your game. They range from a dig site spawning 0% of the time, up to 99% of the time, for those people who do all their collecting with their pets.


This was made with patch 1.50, but because this XML node has not changed since Pets came out, it should also work with all previous patches. This mod should be compatible with all future patches as well.

Since this is about Pets, you need Pets to get it to work. This mod is unnecessary if you don't have the Pets expansion.

Twallan for mentioning on his site where to find the XML tree for this, or I would never have guessed. Twallan, you are awesome!
