Pet Hiking Motive Changes

Has it ever bothered you that pets relieve their bladder during a walk, but not during a hike? It certainly bothers some people. One of those people is Rosebine, who posted about it in hacks & CC you'd like to see. I've never met a dog that doesn't pee at least five times during any walk, and as Rosebine points out hiking is the only walking interaction that lets you bring multiple pets a long. I had a look and it's easy to fix, so why not! Now your pets can tag along for the hike and come back all peed out!

What is this?
This is a global mod that changes how hiking affects a pets motive, if brought along. It comes in two versions, only use one.

With this, pets will pee on the first bush or tree they see on their hike, and return with empty bladders and full bladder bars. For all other motives Pets are affected in the same way as Sims, as EA coded it.

With this pet motives are separated from Sims motives, and better represent how most dogs and cats I've known respond to going on a hike. When they return, they will be tired and wanting to lie down, but happy and with empty bladders. Fun, social and bladder will all go up, other motives will go down but only energy and comfort are notably decreased. Sim motive changes are unchanged.

Requires FT, because going for a hike is a hobby interaction that came with FT. Compatible with AL and M&G.

None that I know of. PetsPee-version will conflict with other mods that affect motive changes from hikes. PetMotiveChanges will conflict with other mods that affect motive changes from hikes, and may also conflict with any other mod that adds new resources to hiking code.

If you are unsure if this mod will conflict with something you are welcome to ask me. Let me know which mod you are worried about and give me a link to the mod, and I will look at it for you.

Rosebine for wishing this existed, good idea!
My beloved dog Idefix whom I modeled the motive change after. He sometimes seemed like a bladder on legs, and would often start a walk by peeing for a good few minutes as soon as he got a few steps beyond our mailbox. On the internet he goes under the name of Lasergoat, and he is the handsome devil you see in my profile picture. I miss you every day fisen.
If you like this mod you might also like Jogging motive changes where I separate pet and Sim motives in the jogging interaction. Now comes with a pets pee version to match this mod.
