Forever or a Day - adjusted pregnancy lengths for sims and pets
Part 1 of my pregnancy mods series.
This mod has been overwhelmingly successful, with over 10k downloads! I just want to thank you all for downloading and enjoying.
Compatible with 1.55!
I prefer to play my game with short lifespans, because I get bored easily - so, I couldn't wait 3 days per pregnancy - thus, the Adjusted Pregnancy Lengths mod was born! This is an XML tuning mod that alters the length of pregnancy for both sims and pets. It comes in 4 flavours, but I also take requests. Details of the pregnancy lengths in the Requests file can be found below.
FIGURES: Original (EAxis) - 3 days long, with 4 days of maternity leave for sims. Super Short - 6 hours long, with 1 day of maternity leave for sims. Short - 24 hours long, with 2 days of maternity leave for sims. Long - 7 days long, with 10 days of maternity leave for sims. Super Long - 21 days long, with 30 days of maternity leave for sims.
Paternity/spousal leave is always 2 days less than maternity leave. I have found no way of changing this so far, sorry!
Sims: DisneySimmer - 1-hour pregnancy, 4 days maternity leave - untested! Ella - 1-hour pregnancy, 2 days maternity leave - untested! EshaPaul - 6-hour pregnancy, no maternity leave. bluemoon-cosmea - 18-hour pregnancy, no maternity leave. alishiagambino - 2-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. himawara106 - 2-day pregnancy, 1 day maternity leave. skeletonkiss - 2-day pregnancy, 4 days maternity leave. arasara86 - 3-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. Satine4711 - 4-day pregnancy, 6 days maternity leave. iDysfunctional - 5 day pregnancy, no maternity leave. LilyBox - 5-day pregnancy, 3 days maternity leave. cjf - 7-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. kenziekk - 9-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. Lutale - 9-day pregnancy, 4 days maternity leave. Minaki - 9-day pregnancy, 8 days maternity leave. missmizumiko13 - 13-day pregnancy, 8 days maternity leave. BklynGrl72 - 14-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. TammyLin Saphir (1) - 15-day pregnancy, 7 days maternity leave Akifami (1) - 18-day pregnancy, 20 days maternity leave. Supermario12 - 20-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. TammyLin Saphir (2) - 20-day pregnancy, 10 days maternity leave Bobt - 30-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. Akifami (2) - 30-day pregnancy, 18 days maternity leave. Misstarten12 - 30-day pregnancy, 35 days maternity leave. Adventure4UI - 42-day pregnancy, 60 days maternity leave. ladyglaze - 60-day pregnancy, 30 days maternity leave. secretpattern - 63 day pregnancy, no maternity leave. Agentgrady - 270-day pregnancy, no maternity leave. angsaysrawrr - 270-day pregnancy, 90 days maternity leave. Valo213 - 274-day pregnancy, 84 days maternity leave.
When I modify the pregnancy length, I also have to choose times for the motives, moodlets, locomotion and so on. Where possible, I have used the formula (answers rounded where applicable) below to calculate the hours:
Length of pregnancy in hours (PL) = Number of Days x 24
Hour the motives change = 15% of PL
Hour the moodlet shows = 30% of PL
Hour the pregnant walk starts = 50% of PL
Hour the belly is fully grown = 80% of PL
Hour the contractions start = 99% of PL
So, for a 10 day pregnancy mod, the motives would start at 36 hours, the moodlet would show at 3 days, the walk would start at 5 days, the belly would be fully grown by the 8th day and the sim would have a 2-hour labour.
You can only have ONE sim pregnancy length mod and ONE pet pregnancy length mod in your game at any one time. This edits the Pregnancy and Pet Pregnancy XML files, so any other mods affecting pregnancy may conflict with mine. Does not conflict with any of my mods. Should not conflict with any of Twallan's mods or AwesomeMod.
