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 Skydome'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. I am not very keen of the tickle and toss in air animations IMO. Children can also rock with a toddler if you have Supernatural's rocking chair or store rocking chair.

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.
-You might see 2 options for an adult to pick up a toddler, this should hopefully be fixed soon.

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

Hmm, that seems very strange...the only thing I can think of is that before, I made idles for the toddler, but the toddlers would always float around like that, they should use EA's and be with the child properly, I'll look into it in a bit.

Hmh, try opening it will WinRAR then, but do you have the latest version? Some other people said the same problem, but they got a newer version of WinRAR because I packed it in a new version of it.

I don't have WinRAR at all, just 7-zip. Is it a free download?

Yes, but it's it's a type of program that asks you to buy it after a certain amount of time, but you won't have to pay anything, if a message comes up asking you to pay for the program or to remove it from your computer just ignore it and carry on what you were doing.

You're welcome, usually updating either WinRAR or 7-zip will do the trick, just like it helped other people

I just had a quick question, is this mod supposed to enable children holding infants? It has in my game but the child gets all stretchy when picking up the baby. Plus just a little note is that toddlers get stretched out when using a public toilet stall and end up going through the wall. It doesn't bother me but I wasn't sure if you were aware. Still, this mod is completely fantastic, thanks again for your work!!

Edit: I just remembered that the toddler toilet use comes with your OTHER mod so not relevant to this one, aha, sorry about that!

Ah, yes I know that children can pick up infants, I didn't realize at the time, but I do now. It's probably because in the script it enabled children to pick up toddlers and babies, but it might also be a peek at a mod I'll be working on soon or later

Sorry Michela, it isn't that easy to update a mod and get rid of all the problems, some can be fixed, but I still can't understand why your game works like that with my mod.

Maybe, do you have any mods that affect interactions between an adult and toddler when they are held? What game version do you have again?
