2008-09-06: Updated to v1.1c. (Up to Apartment Life) 3 AL dining chairs and 4 recliners were added.

2008-07-22: Updated to v1.1b. Teens and Elders can clean up used catnip.

2008-06-27: Updated to v1.1a. (Up to IKEA Home Stuff Pack)
A whole bunch of objects (including 2 IKEA single beds) were added to really enable chew/scratch interaction for small dogs and cats.
Missing "clean" tree in OBJf of Art Nouveau Double Bed was fixed.

2008-03-15: Updated to v1.1.
2 FreeTime dining chairs, 4 Glamour Life Stuff objects were added.
Also fixes a FT bug in GLS dining chair that disabled pie menu for human.
Now combined into one file for less clutter. Please remove previous version from your Downloads folder.


***************


EAxis failed to fully enable pet interactions for some objects from various EPs/SPs.
Some objects are completely disabled for pets, others only partially enabled.
For example, pets can't sleep on GLS Luxury bed or Seasons Racecar bed in pre-AL games. They can't chew/scratch Celebration dining chairs, either.
This mod will enable all pet interactions for those forgotten Maxis objects up to Apartment Life.


The previous version was split up into tiny packets by each EP/SP.
As of v1.1, they're combined into a single file for less clutter. If you were using previous version of this fix, remove these 5 files from your Downloads folder.

LdDarcy_PetEnabledObjectsFix_EP3_OFB.package
LdDarcy_PetEnabledObjectsFix_EP4_Pets.package
LdDarcy_PetEnabledObjectsFix_EP5_SNS.package
LdDarcy_PetEnabledObjectsFix_EP6_BV.package
LdDarcy_PetEnabledObjectsFix_SP4_CS.package

This mod now supports GLS objects as well. You don't have to get jfade's GLS objects fix.


EAxis, in their infinite wisdom, finally got around to enable pet interactions for GLS dining chair (Banquet Chair by Well Bred and Co.) in FreeTime, at the cost of disabling human interaction. Words fail me. *Headdesk*
This mod will fix this abysmal stupidity as well.



Even though chew/scratch function appeared in pie menu, small dogs and cats couldn't actually chew/scratch some objects. (Large dogs are not affected.) They just whine as if something is blocking their route. As of v1.1a, almost all seating objects are actually chewable/scratchable for small dogs and cats.

The one bedside of Art Nouveau Double Bed was missing "clean" tree in OBJf used by maids. Sometimes maids may forget to make bed. Also fixed in v1.1a.

Teens and Elders can clean up used catnip.


List of objects fixed by this mod: See RTFM inside.


Installation:

Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.
(Or in a subfolder of Downloads folder.)

Wow, nice going. I usually don't play my families with pets because they are such a hassle. But if I do, at least the right objects will be destroyable. Now, if people made a mod to enable actions for the pets, such as eating or woohooing, that would be ultimate.

Since jfade's petenabledglsobjects needs to be updated for FT, does it mean these do as well? Please advise. Thanks.

Hackdiff reports no conflict for FT. I think that jfade's GLS hack modifies one hobby object (Luxury bookcase) which was altered in FT. Mine, however, modifies only seating objects like beds and chairs.

Thank you so much for updating this for FT. I was just going through my downloads folder & checking on what needs updating for FT, and believe it or not, I had this mod on my list of needed updates. And here you've already done it!

Hi,I have questions here....If the hack scanner said this hack's conflicted with "Teen Woohoo" FT version.Can I still keep it? Or I have to delete either one?

Thank you (for the downloads and answers)

Are you talking about InTeen? I've never used InTeen myself, so I wouldn't know what causes possible conflict. InTeen is notorious for being incompatible with a lot of other popular mods by prominent modders. If you absolutely can't part with InTeen, make sure InTeen loads after my mod. Hacks are loaded in alphabetical order. You might lose some of functions in my mod though.

I have all EPs up to FreeTime except for Pets. However, I do have the GL stuff pack and would like my humans to be able to sit in their chairs again. Can I still use this fix safely?

Yes, it's safe to use for all post-Pets EPs, including FreeTime. All post-Pets EPs DO have codes for pet interactions, they just don't appear without Pets. Until some clueless idiot in EAxis decided to mess up GLS chair in FreeTime, there was no point to get this fix if you don't have Pets.

The HCDU reports a conflict with the Inteenimater (specifically Inteenimater_B). Is that of no consequence?
