Overview
While testing traits for pets and watching what they do autonomously, I've been bothered that even neat pets pee indoors and the frequency it happens is a bit annoying. Occasionally sims react and/or do something about it, but in my experience they dont. I've also been bothered that you can't direct a pet to pee until the bladder level reaches -40 or about 25% on the motive. I have used the mod by Shimrod in the past, but his mod sets the level at 0 or 50% of the motive, while the Bladder motive is -100 to 100.


The Changes
I have made threechanges:
  1. Changed the motive level for the "Pee Here" interaction from -40 (default) to 95
  2. Changed the indoors autonomous Bladder Relief advertisement from 200 to -1000
  3. Changed the outdoors autonomous Bladder Relief advertisement from 200 to 1000


Why these Changes?
I originally tried to disable autonomous bladder relief indoors, but this caused the pet to become glitched and unresponsive. Apparently it's the equivalent to telling the pet to "tie a knot in it" or "put a cork in it", doesn't work in Sims either Regardless how much I put for advertisement to go outside as opposed to inside, there is the rare chance it will still happen, and for that reason you can't disable it.

Secondly, I wanted to be able to direct the pet to relieve their bladder, no matter what level the motive was at. For example, having the pet go outside before everyone goes to bed. This is also the only change for horses.

Hmm I have read up on your mod. And yes it seemed great until I saw the advertisement numbers. They seem a bit extreme, don't you think? I dunno, anyone who has actually tested this mod, please mail me and let me know if it's worth it.

This is a nice mod! I hate the fact that you can't tell your pet to pee until they've peed themselves.
