Dog Chew Treat (increases hunger)

by hmiller61615 Posted 1st Mar 2014 at 12:48 PM - Updated 8th Mar 2014 at 11:20 PM by hmiller61615 : Made the download recolorable

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a simple chew bone that also raises your dog's hunger motive. It can act as an alternative to pet bowls, as it never needs to be refilled and won't get broken down to scraps. It is a standalone object with its own GUID, so it will not alter the behavior of the original dog bone.

It also helps for those pets that somehow develop the inability to eat from a pet bowl, due to some glitch or error. This can be seen in the "Comparison" image provided: even with "boolprop controlpets on" set, the interaction isn't available to eat. With this Chew Treat, you can avoid starving your pet when it isn't your fault.

It can be found in the Misc>Pets category ("Chew Treat" for $55) and there aren't any incompatibilities that I'm aware of. It has a recolorable subset and, obviously, it requires The Sims 2 Pets.

Agree Our cats need the same thing. But I guess one can not be greedy if we do not know how to make it ( I know I can not ) but I can wish.

You read my mind! I created one called "Kitty Fish Treat" that does the same thing as this
