Forever or a Day - adjusted pregnancy lengths for sims and pets
Part 1 of my pregnancy mods series.

This mod has been overwhelmingly successful, with over 10k downloads! I just want to thank you all for downloading and enjoying.

Compatible with 1.55!

DESCRIPTION:
I prefer to play my game with short lifespans, because I get bored easily - so, I couldn't wait 3 days per pregnancy - thus, the Adjusted Pregnancy Lengths mod was born! This is an XML tuning mod that alters the length of pregnancy for both sims and pets. It comes in 4 flavours, but I also take requests. Details of the pregnancy lengths in the Requests file can be found below.


FIGURES:
Original (EAxis) - 3 days long, with 4 days of maternity leave for sims.
Super Short - 6 hours long, with 1 day of maternity leave for sims.
Short - 24 hours long, with 2 days of maternity leave for sims.
Long - 7 days long, with 10 days of maternity leave for sims.
Super Long - 21 days long, with 30 days of maternity leave for sims.

Paternity/spousal leave is always 2 days less than maternity leave. I have found no way of changing this so far, sorry!


REQUESTS:


FORMULA:


USE:
You can only have ONE sim pregnancy length mod and ONE pet pregnancy length mod in your game at any one time. This edits the Pregnancy and Pet Pregnancy XML files, so any other mods affecting pregnancy may conflict with mine. Does not conflict with any of my mods. Should not conflict with any of Twallan's mods or AwesomeMod.


COMPATIBILITY:
Compatible with 1.55!
The 1.26 to 1.48 version may be compatible with earlier/later versions, but is not tested so use with caution!
Base game compatible. Pets EP is not required for sim pregnancy adjustments.


CREDITS:

Enjoy!!

Is that an EA thing or is it the mod.... or is it just me? I have the 1 day pregnancy for the pets.


Hmm, I haven't heard of / experienced that problem before... it's most likely an EA issue, there's nothing in my mods that should affect that. Damn EA!


I got almost the same issue, though only my sim got affected. It stopped when I deleted the horse.
Same file as well. I didn't have it before I installed this mod.

Currently getting my laptop fixed, but when I have it back I'll be sure to look into this again extensively.

Hi, thank you soooo much for this mod!
Would there be any chances of you making the 3 day pregnancy but WITHOUT the maternity leave?
Thank you again.

ok, so i'm hoping the ones labeled sims instead of pets means that i can use it even though i don't have the pets expansion yet? tell me if i'm wrong--i loathe pregnancy & children, but if it must happen, the super long one would be useful (even if annoying) since i use epic life spans for my sims, & when the lifespan is set to max, it takes about 90 game days for young adults to age 1 yr (if you assume young adults are approximately 20-24 yrs old)...so if i went by maxis' ridiculous 3 day pregnancy with my epic lifespans, the sim could have what, 30 kids in 1 yr...um no!! LOL-- so as much as i hate pregnancy/children, this would help it to be a little closer to realistic i think, so if i can use it pre-pets then thank you very much

Ok, I downloaded the 30 day, and I was wondering when the symptoms show, when they get the belly and that jazz.

All that my sims been really doing is craving more stuff after a few days like they usually do when pregnant. But yeahh...

For the 30 day request: motives change on the 3rd day, they get the pregnancy buff on the 5th day and I believe they begin showing at this point, they begin walking pregnant at 1 week and they have the full belly by the 3 week mark.

I believe this is identical to the alishiagambino request, so download that file

I checked the kenziekk file, and found no problem - sims are instructed to have NO maternity leave. Is it possible that you accidentally used the Lutale or Minaki files? They are both 9 days, but with 4 and 8 days of maternity leave respectively.

Hi there!

Possibly with 8 days of maternity leave if you could?
For the sims.

Hey, I downloaded the 21 day pregnancy, and I've been having some trouble getting it to work. Would Master Controller be what is conflicting with it? Or did I download something incorrectly?
Any help would be very much appreciated because I would LOVE to have this mod in my game, working properly Thank you!

I downloaded the 9 day no maternity leave and I have noticed that the tummy doesn't get to full size, is this resolvable? If not I can definitely live with it, it's still a great mod

Thank you!

would it be possible to do a 9 day pregnancy that they work through then have a couple days maternity leave?
