I would not want to do either.

Add a subset? No, it's fine. I like them.

Well sure, but...you're also not a dog. (At least, I don't think you are.)

Tutorial: Adding a subset to an object (and making it recolorable)

Yeah that's a helpful tutorial and was the one I originally used to learn how to do it. What you'd go for I think, is a mesh (you'd only need a surface) that was placed just above the level of the original food so that you could see the new surface and not the original in game. One way to do that easily would be to select the surface bit of the mesh (I'm thinking in Milkshape here) and clone it and then raise it up a fraction (using move along the Y axis).

Then you could offer recolours of the surface only - you'd have to default the mesh if you wanted to add options to the original bowl in game or the recolours wouldn't be available for that.

But really, it's fine as it is if you don't feel comfortable doing that. I like the extra options.

Question: Would my pet-friendly house qualify for this theme? I made it for the Community Spirit contest, but had to rebuild it, so it's not like I'm using the exact same lot twice. I built it after researching tips on what would make a house pet-friendly.

If so, I think I can add another keyword.

Well, you'd have to ask a lot moderator for sure but I think it might come under duplication. How different is the lot from the original?

Not a whole lot. I never uploaded it anywhere, but it was created for the contest. So I guess it just stays as is.

Errr ... uploading moderators ... a question or two?

I haven't totally gone into the realm of fantasy. My Newman lot disappeared from the Downloads list here today! It's under my name, but NOT in the public list.

I didn't mean that it's a duplicate lot, as in, I've uploaded it here before. I meant that back during the Community Spirit contest in July, I entered it as an entry for that contest, but not as an upload. When the Pets theme came around, I thought it would fit the theme, but I messed up my hood with the lot in it, and to make sure that this lot was nice and tidy for uploading here, rebuilt it from the ground up in a fresh game in a fresh hood (playing no Sims in the game), using pictures of my old entry as my floor plans. I made some alterations, but yes, the lot still bears a strong resemblance to the contest entry, so I understand why it wouldn't count for the theme. That is fine and dandy.

Also, the lot doesn't show up under any keywords. I'm going to clean my cache to see if it indeed shows up under my name. (It still does.)

Ummm ... what happened in the Downloads section? I think I minded my manners.

I see your lot, gazania. But only if I switch from compatible downloads to all, because I don't have Store edition.

Funny..I just checked gazania's lots downloads. She has 4, and only one of them, the Newman's, has Store listed in the +9 SP's.
Though all 4 of them shows the +9.
This is strange.

Ah this is it. I learnt from Tashi a while back that sometimes using the search functions on the site can set preferences secretly. Change them back manually and you should see everything properly. Even with your own stuff. Really.

Yeah, I know, I said that to him too.

How did my lot get the Store designation? There are no Store items in it. That very well might be my error, though. I will have to check. If I can't fix it, I'll have to indicate in my description that it doesn't need any Store items. Maybe it is a filtering thing, as maxon indicated. I'll look at my filters as well.

It's been fixed, according to a mod. I don't see it yet, but perhaps I need to be patient. Or maybe it is the filtering thing. (Yes ... I had the same experience. If I switch to all, I see it.))

The weird thing was that it was OK a day or two ago!

But this is neither here nor there for the Pets theme, I know, so this is probably the last post I'll make in this topic about it. Apparently, it was an accident and had nothing to do about any confusing posts on my part. So ... err ... about those Pets objects and lots?

EDIT ... And it's back! Thank you, mods!

Well I got my cat collar ready it will be up soon.

Edited to add I changed out the bow and made texture slightly bigger so I could have more variety in style.
