Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hey everyone, I finally got around to creating a new pet creature for your Sims to enjoy. This one is a one-eyed plant creature!

This object was created by cloning the womrat object from the Pets Expansion, (which also means you must own the Pets EP for this object to work properly). It has the same animations, sounds, and options as the womrat object. (There is a small issue where the plant's feet become detached from it's body when eating and climbing up the cage-side due to the animations, but it won't cause any problems other than looking slightly odd).

This download contains 3 meshes: the Plant Pet Cage, the Plant Pet, and a recolored Maxis Pet-food-box. All three must be in your Downloads folder for this item to work properly.

Your Sims can feed it, play with it, watch it, etc, (just like the womrat object).

I'd also like to say thank you to the creators who's custom content I used in my screenshots, (although I can't recall where I got everything from at the moment). But thank you anyways!

So yes, here's another brand-new pet for your Sims. Enjoy!

Polygon Counts:
Cage - "Faces: 2058" "Vertices: 2371"
Plant Pet - "Faces: 1326" "Vertices: 863"
Food Box - "Faces: 32" "Vertices: 60"

Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

modman3000! - Err, I'm not sure what you mean. Which pets are you talking about? My pets?

DarkAngelMeg - I'm familiar with the Pikmen game, (although I never got around to actually playing it). The structure of the Pikmen are quite simple and would be fairly easy to mesh. However, I enjoy meshing my own creatures and it would feel weird to me to copy something from a game I've never played myself. But if anyone would like to try themselves and would like some pointers, I'd be more than happy to help

Rapsheba555 - It makes the same squeaky noises as the womrat.

She isn't kidding about the help. She has been more than fabulous helping me to create my very first thing ever for the Sims 2 and after only a little over a month I am finally THIIIIS close to actually being ready to upload. You rock Klinny!

The only think I noticed thats a little strange is the fact that when you fill the bowl with food, it still looks empty. Is that normal. Other than that GREAT WORK!

Yeah, I got rid of the food-meshes in my pets when I made them because they were causing problems. However, if people would prefer that the food dishes filled up properly I could work on it and attempt to get it working

So yeah, if people would like me to work on that issue just send me a PM or something so I know

Default OMG these are sooo cute!!!! *boom* (head explodes)
I downloaded this little darling and then bought one for one of my sims. The moment that little cutie started moving I had an 'OMG this is just the cutest thing ever!!!' seizure. I love his tiny little legs and the way his little eye stalk bends backwards when he runs in his wheel. I love these pets of yours. Sure womrats are adorable but your creations take cute to a whole new level. Thank you so much for these tiny wonders.

I really love your pets. I have them in all my sims houses rather than the original wormrat. This one is awesome! I can't wait to see it in action.
If you ever run out of ideas for strange and interesting creatures it would be great to have a toad, iguana or chameleon (although these things wouldn't typically run in a wheel, but it's fantasy.) Have you ever tried altering the bird cage/bird mesh? It would be neat to have a different creature in there. Like a monkey-ish thing.
Thank you so much for giving us new pets!

Are you going to do anything like this with the aquarium? Maybe some with goldfish or butterflies or something? I don't even know if it is possible but it would be neat.

*jaw drops* You know, that is exactly what my sims need: a caged animal other than womrats and birds. I'm downloading it anyway, but I would like to know: does it satisfy the 'buy womrat' want?

Thank you for all the positive comments and feedback everyone, I appreciate it!

L41N - I haven't tried anything with the aquarium yet, but that's definately something I'll consider trying in the future

swampcandy - Although I have not tested it myself, I've been informed that my pets do indeed satisfy the "Buy Womrat" Want.

I have had this cute little plant creature for months now, and I just had to come back and say it is so much fun to watch!
Oh, and a note if anyone wants to know it works fine with "Bon Voyage".
Thanks for making this cute little pet.
