This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a mod to allow children to carry toddlers, made by me, PuddingFace and Sofmc9.

I always remembered taking care of my little cousin when I was small, so I thought let's make it possible in the Sims 3!



So, basically this mod allows children to carry toddlers and more or less take care of their basic needs without stretching.

Watch gameplay video here https://youtu.be/jGFRbqWoqC4

Mod Info

- This mod was built and tested with game version 1.69, but should work with other versions.
- What type of mod is this? - This is a tuning mod along with PuddingFace's pick up child script mod.
- Animations - most animations are custom made, but some have been converted but tweaked a bit. Some animations may not look very nice, like the change outfit and toss in air interactions. Also, the toddler was originally lower but due to location problems they have been raised and using EA's carry toddler idles.

- Children can put in and take toddlers out of cribs and high chairs, sit down with them, walk to lots with them (they can't ride their bikes while holding a toddler) and interact with other sims, basically do whatever an adult sim who's holding a toddler can do.

- Children can autonomously take out toddlers from high chairs and cribs, and will usually perform a toss in air or tickle interaction to them. But, they can't necessarily take care of toddlers autonomously by holding them and putting them into a crib or high chair.

Please also read the ReadMe file for more notices you might want to know about.

Interactions

Children can perform the following interactions on toddlers:

-Pick up
-Put down
-Tickle
-Toss in air
-Change outfit
-Put in crib or high chair
-Put a tired toddler to bed.

Some interactions, as I also said before, might not look very good in a way of clipping or floating, such as the tickle, toss in air and change outfit. Others such as put in crib, take out high chair look okay. Children also will not stretch when performing the interactions.

Known Issues

-Children can go to community lots and houses with the toddler, but they won't get onto their bikes while holding the tot. So either get an adult to go somewhere with the child, and they'll go inside the vehicle holding the toddler, or command your sim to walk to the destination. I recommend using a no babysitter mod if you don't want the babysitter popups coming up all the time,
like NRaas GoHere has an option to disable babysitters.

-If you command your sim child to tickle, toss in air, put in crib, feed in high chair or change outfit to a sitting toddler, they will not do it due to something in the script. So a child has to first be holding a toddler before performing any interactions on them.

-The placement of the toddler's arms do look a bit weird, but I couldn't do anything about it
-The child's arm may be too apart from the toddler sometimes, like when they sit down but it's minor.

Conflicts

This mod will conflict with any other tuning mod that changes any of the interactions listed above.


-TOU

-Please do not re-upload our mod to paysites or claim it as your own!
-Enjoy and Happy Simming!

Thank you PuddingFace, Sofmc9 and SuperGal<3 for helping me test it out

I'd like to try this, but after watching your YouTube video demonstrating it, I'd like to know if kids will get Memories for picking up toddlers every single time or not.

Sorry for the belated post, but I downloaded this a while back and it is indeed a game changer!

(Also, I don't have any problems with Memory spam like I feared, but I do have velocitygrass's No (or fewer) automatic memories mod and tool with which I made a package long ago with only Memories I want permitted, so they aren't happening at all.)

That's good! Without the mod you mentioned, the memories act the same way as if adults were to pick toddlers up for the first time, so you wouldn't need to worry about it anyways

I noticed that my cat has the option to pick up my baby, and I am fairly certain it's this mod. When the cat picks up the baby they both deform and then they're stuck. Just needs a sim reset to fix, but I thought I'd report it!

With this mod, I had a second "Pick Up" interaction on my adult's pie menu for his toddler, and, bizarrely, I was only able to put down the toddler on the ground floor. The adult would carry the child upstairs, then go back downstairs to put the toddler down.

I found the ITUN for the pick up interaction in this mod and set it to child-only. This seems to have fixed both issues.

It might not be a bug in this mod, per se. I also have Arsil's Child2Baby2Toddler and the compatibility script between that mod and TST's mods. It's possible both messed with the same interaction? At any rate, this fixed the problem for me, if anyone else had it.

Thank you, I am very aware of this issue! I've just been putting this mod off for years but I really should update it soon
I haven't actually looked in the actual mod file for a while so I assumed the issue was because there was no ITUN file for the interaction, therefor any age child and above, and pets could perform the interaction.
