Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ever wanted to do more than have your Sim watch or pet a raccoon? Well now you can! O.K., so it's not the same, but it's better than nothing. I made this based on the Raccoon instead of the Raccoon dog since the patterns of a raccoon seem nicer to me. He's currently named Tanuki (I think it's Japanese for Raccoon Dog) Raccoon. He's destructive, aggressive, shy, skittish and playful. You could change them of course. Or you could make it a challenge to try and tame him... or five of them all at once. Hope you'll like him! ^__^


P.S. Many thanks to HystericalParoxysm and others for their helpful feedback and suggestions.



Notes

* As usual, please don't steal my stuff or modify them and re-upload them somewhere else and claim it as your own creation. It might not look it, but it took me hours spread between days and weeks to make this. Placing it in game, taking photos, making adjustments, rinse and repeat many, many times before I get it right. So, give credit where credit is due, o.k.? Thanks!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Hi there! It should be under premade sims when you're in CAS. Hope that helps?

always wanted to befriend a racoon in real life! (but ethics, unless in need of rehabilitation and I had the proper skills and resources will probably keep that from happening...) But now I can! lol Thank you!

Can't get this to show up in my game either. I have it in the Saved Sims file. I also tried putting it in a mods file. No luck! I love your creations and it is killing me that I can't have them in my game!!! I get other people's pets in my game, just not yours. I don't understand it. Any suggestions?

I love it, it's so cute! I kinda wish it was a cat-raccoon, just because cats can jump on the counter and eat your food =P
