TS2 > TS4 Galactix Animal Home Conversion
Uploaded 19th May 2018 at 1:43 PM · Updated 27th Aug 2018 at 5:55 PM by Menaceman44
Today I am offering you my third and final pet house conversion. This time it is of the Galactix Animal Home from The Sims 2 for use in your Sims 4 game.
I felt this one would be good for mad scientists, aliens, or owners of unconventional pets.
For this converson I have had to recreate all of the textures from scratch and do some substantial UV remapping to make it look better.
The Galactix Animal Home comes in a total of 6 colour choices as can be seen in the attached images. The designs are all based on the original colours from TS2 with the addition of a purple/pink version as well.
Large dogs, small dogs, and cats call ALL sleep in this pet house. It can only be used by one pet at a time though. This means that the object also uses a custom tuning.
Pets will only enter the object from the front, as intended. They should not be able to jump through the walls.
The pet house can be found under the Pets Object sort or any of the pet icons found in Room sort for a cost of 1,500 simoleons.
Installation - Important
Inside the .zip archive there are two files.
If you DO NOT already have my Low Country Living Pet House conversion in your game then install BOTH files as the tuning is required for the object to work. Otherwise you will just have a pretty decorative object that can't be used.
If you DO already have my Low Country Living Pet House conversion in your game then you do not need to use the tuning file as it is already included in my first pet house conversion.
The pet house now features a custom snowcover texture so that snow no longer collects inside the pet house when placed outside in Winter.
Pets may stand at any side of the pet house when attempting to shoo another pet from it.
When a Sim directs a pet to use the house, they may clip their hand through the roof depending on where they stand for the interaction. See the attached image.
There is also slight clipping with the back legs of large dogs when exiting the house.
LOD0 (High) - 2198
LOD1 (Medium) - 1504
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.
