It's always bothered me that you can't feed your fish in the Sims 4 so I've added a simple version of it. Every 8 hours Teen-Elder sims can feed the fish and get a 4 hour happy buff. It also gives a bit of a Responsibility boost. There is an addon for Children to feed fish as well, but it's not currently basegame compatible and requires Eco Lifestyle. All sims can now talk to fish to increase their social need as well.

These are overrides to the EA objects, giving them a custom tuning. It shouldn't conflict with anything unless you have something else that happens to modify these objects specifically, but please let me know if you have any problems with it.
  • Basgame Fish Bowl*
  • Basegame Gummy Fish Bowl*
  • Basegame Boneyard Fish Bowl*
  • Cats & Dogs Aquarium
  • Dine Out Aquarium
  • Spa Day Aquarium (2 versions)
*With the addon children can use these objects, however it requires Eco Lifestyle for the animation

Past Updates:

The new strings are in English and Czech (courtesy of Mikaela_Lovett) only at the moment. I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate them so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.

  • Ilex_ALL_FeedPetsShared is required for all of my Feed Your Pets mods

  • FeedPetsChild requires Eco Lifestyle for the animation. If I find a better animation this addon will be removed.
  • MermaidChildTalkFish requires Island Living but does not actually require the main mod. This simply changes the EA "Talk to Fish" interaction to work for child mermaids. This will conflict with anything else that overrides that interaction. If you have IL and don't install this you will have a weird scenario where children can talk to fish unless they're mermaids. Nothing game breaking, but perhaps immersion breaking.

Known issues
  • The animations don't look exactly like they're going in the bowl/aquarium but use your imagination. I'm not an animator so I've gotta work with what already exists.

Future plans
  • Find a basegame compatible animation for kids
  • Eventually rework some of the functionality altogether to require a pet food object
  • Possibly turning the My First Pet Aquarium into a functioning aquarium if I can get it working. My attempts so far have been unsuccessful so I might just do a faked version for a bit until I figure out how to make it work for real.
  • Additional "Feed Your Pets" mods

Thank you to Mikaela_Lovett for the Czech translation!

If you're an object creator and want to use my tuning you totally can. Just link people to my stuff to download it and send me a link to your work if you want me to share it.
