Breeding pets in The Sims 3: PC Pets is actually more difficult than you might think. You think, "There are two pets, a male and a female, so you need to make a pair of them." But it’s not that simple. Also, at times, the 'Try to have kids' option is simply not there. This article will help you make the task easier.
Method 1 of 3: Breeding Dogs
Step 1. Breed dogs
Not every attempt will result in your Sims becoming pregnant. But when the dog becomes pregnant, you get a message on the screen informing you of this event. Another way to find out if your dog is pregnant or not is to check if there is a 'Try to have a baby' option that doesn't appear until your dog is pregnant.
Step 2. When the time is right, your dog will give birth to a random number of puppies that will appear with colorful special effects
Puppies will have several personality traits and coloration inherited from their parents or grandparents. Puppies can also inherit the ability to do some tricks if their parents or grandparents knew how to do them.
Step 3. You will receive a message with the number of cubs in the brood and a reminder to give them a name
To do this, click on the puppies and click on the "name pet" interaction.
Step 4. A new litter will result in a powerful New Puppies moodlet for the whole family
Step 5. Sims look at the puppies and (either autonomously or upon user guidance) emit tender sounds
This results in a positive "puppies" moodlet.
Method 2 of 3: Breeding cats
Step 1. Breed cats
Fortunately, play cats never have random kittens. As with dogs, you must deliberately breed your cats. Just like with dogs, you need a kennel before breeding cats. Yes, yes, a kennel - but formally these are pet houses. Cats and cats do not have special love rooms.
Step 2. Like dogs, cats retire to a 'pet' house where they will perform a grooming ritual
When they go outside, there will be a chance that the cat is pregnant. In this case, you will receive a message telling you to get ready for the kittens.
When the cat and the cat are a couple, keep the relationship meter full. When it is full and you have a pet house nearby, click "Try to get kittens". Get ready for kittens
Step 3. Cats, like other pets, are not a big deal
Several kittens just appear next to them, surrounded by colorful special effects. Then you can name the kittens.
Step 4. Kittens and puppies start eating solid foods immediately after birth
Get ready to refill your bowls more often.
Method 3 of 3: Breeding Horses
Step 1. Breed the horses
When it comes to horse breeding, you have several alternatives. First of all, you can create a horse and a mare and make them a pair in the relationship editor, and their relationship will be at a higher level from the very beginning. Then you will need to put a stall box on your site. Without a stable, horses simply cannot reproduce. If you have a pair of horses of the opposite sex, you can order your horse to 'Try to have a baby'.
Step 2. They will enter the box and the action will be blocked
You will see the usual flow of hearts around the horses. As with Sims, not every attempt to have a baby leads to pregnancy. Keep trying until you see the message that the mare is pregnant.
Step 3. In a few days the mare will give birth to a foal and you can name it
The foal usually displays the traits of both parents. If the parents have been trained, then there is a chance that the foal will inherit some important abilities.
Step 4. You can also get a foal if you give the mare for breeding in an equestrian center
As a result, the family will receive a foal. Offering a horse will result in money, not a foal.
Step 5. Raise your new foal
The new foal will become a family member that can be controlled. Foals have the same needs as adult horses, but they are not thirsty. In foals, hunger and thirst are replenished either by feeding the mother or by bottle feeding.
Step 6. Foals do not like to be separated from their mother, just as mothers do not like to part with their foals
They get negative moodlets from separation, quickly lose socialization, and become generally miserable until they get back together.
Step 7. What happens if a foal is permanently separated from its mother as a result of its sale, moving to another family, or death?
The foal will miss its mother until it makes a friend, improves its relationship with another mare in the family, or grows up.
- You can breed adopted cats, dogs or horses.
- Horses only have one foal at a time.
- Unlike horses, puppies and kittens cannot be sold. This means that you cannot breed them for a reward.
- Dogs and Sim cats never accidentally have babies. You must deliberately breed dogs before they can produce offspring.
- You can do hybrid crosses. It is not necessary to breed the same breed of cats, dogs or horses. You can mix colors and see what the cubs look like.
- Foals cannot be ridden, they can only be driven.
- Foals can be sold. But you can't sell unicorn foals.
- Once the Sim in the family befriends or raises their relationship with the foal, the mother and foal can be separated if you so choose.
- You cannot breed animals if you have 10 family members or 6 pets.
- When pets try to have cubs, a rain of hearts appears.
