The first thing I thought when I got Pets was that my sims needed a hyena - I'm sure you all thought the same thing, right? Well, here is the marvellous animal in the virtual flesh.

  • Sim Hyena pups are invariably black - just like the real thing.
  • The kill my hyenas are feasting on is the oh so decorative pile of carnage made by <a href="">bootsbrisket</a> - use moveObjects to put it over a full food dish
  • The other pets you see around my hyena are the other two major hyena breeds, striped and brown hyenas, as well as a lion king style grey spotted recolor
  • You'll see from the pics that hyenas make great pets

Wow. I never thought a hyena can be made as a pet. I wish this pet can laugh. :D

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Yeah, It would be nice if there were more controls for shaping dog ears. Also, I hope to get some time to make fur accessories soon so I can give the hyena bit of a mane and a better tale as well as making better attachments to improve and upload my other hyenas.

^_^ Actually the need for a hyena WAS one of my first thoughts... it was my second thought. My first thought was foxes galore since I adore foxes, but then I tried to make a hyena (another animal fave of mine) and it didnt come out too good at all. This one, especially given the limitations on customization, looks great!

*raises hand* It WAS in fact my first thought, that my self-sim needed a hyena. They're my favorite animal, ever. You say you made a striped and a brown? I'm gonna collect the whole set. When can we expect an aardwolf?

Yeah, hominids shared scavengings with hyenas and caught tapeworms from them... Now I want a hominid world!
