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:
The ever-amazing S3PE!


Enjoy!!

I love this mod! Thank you so much for it. Would it be possible to have a 14 day pregnancy with no maternity leave? I play a long life and I just had the 9 day pregnancy but it seemed to go so quickly. I really appreciate this mod! Thanks!

Could you make a 5 day pregnancy, please? I think the EAxis' is too short, but seven days is too long.

Edit: Nevermind. Didn't see it in the request spoiler before.

FarrahJude,

Hello, im a fairly new mod-user. I am trying to make my game as realistic as I possibly can, for that reason, I need a pregnancy mod. I am wondering if you could make a flavor of your mod that has pet pregnacy last for 8 days and sim pregnacy that lasts for 36 days. If you could also take away maternity leave, that would be awsome. If not, thats fine too. I really would appreciate this, please consider adding to your mod, thanks.

Hi, I so love your mod! I am playing a week equals a month, therefore can I request a 63 days of pregnancy? I would prefer this without maternity leave. That would be super!

Glad you're all enjoying it, I'll try to get these requests done when I have the time! Also, it should work on anything from 1.26 to 1.34, and possibly earlier though I haven't tested it on previous versions.

Is it still possible to request? Or is it outdated? I'd really love a 5 day pregnancy WITHOUT maternity leave. Does the maternity leave count for both during and after? I'd like that, if it's not too much to ask.

I am a complicated player: I tried 30 days and it was sooo long I thought I was dying of waiting, but I think 9 or 10 days of pregnancy is too short, and I want some maternity leave... so I'm in trouble
If you still take requests, would you please make a 15 or 20 days pregnancy with 7 or 10 days of maternity leave (after child delivery) (or both flavours if I may ask ) ?

Anyway, thank you very much for creating this mod that adds a little more realism in our game !

Hey! Love your mod! Just wondering if I have to redownload after patch 1.36? My game is freaking out about SOMETHING, and I don't know what!
The launcher keeps crashing and the game is running REALLY slowly. So I've been checking all my mods, and just wanted to know if the version I downloaded on July 17th still works, or if I have to download a new version.

Thanks!

I'm going to try the 21 day pregnancy with the 30 day maternity leave, but if you have time for another request, could you possibly make a 60 day pregnancy with a 30 day maternity leave?

Oh, and thanks so much for this! so excited to give it a try.

Hi, I just downloaded the super long pregnancy mod yesterday and it seems to be affecting my game to the point that i cannot get my sims to get pregnant at all. I'm thinking it's either one of two things. I was suppose to put the mod into the overrides folder instead of the package folder or the nrass woohooer mod I have installed is conflicting with this one. I did read that it may conflict with other mods that deal in pregnancy. Does the mod not work with nraas woohooer??

I don't have the Nraas Woohoo mod and I am having the same issue. My sims cannot at all get pregnant with this in the packages folder. (I have the requested 9 days with no time off).

Yes! I agree! I say 15 days of pregnancy with 7 day maternity leave. I'd like to request this also.

Just want to say thanks for this mod. I left it in by mistake when installing Supernatural. I have the super short sim one. It does work with 1.38 patch, at least on my computer it does.

Theoretically it should have worked with that version, but the mods have all been completely updated so if you redownload now they should definitely work!

It shouldn't conflict with the Woohooer at all The new updated versions of the mod should have no problems at all, so try those in a new, "clean" neighbourhood and see if you have any problems.

Honestly, I can't even remember the locations of the files now! If it's pregnancy you want to edit, you can open my files in S3PE and alter them directly

This problem should be resolved now, the tummy should reach full size sometime during day 7

As in having the maternity leave at the end? I'm not sure if that's possible, if so I'd imagine it's beyond XML tuning. I'll look into it though!
