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.

Enjoy!!

Great Mod! I love how on the 6 hour one they find out there pregnant right after WooHoo. I always find pregnancy the most annoying thing in the game because it takes I feel too long for the baby to be born. So Thank You! I Love It! (I deleted my last comment so I could comment with more feedback, I honestly just started commenting on posts just to thank you.)

Is there a way we could have like, maybe a day and a half or two day pregnancy? One day seems just a hair too short but I can't stand the three day normal time either. Fine with the normal maternity leave though.

I know that a few people have already requested changes (joys of being a modder, I suppose), but I would love to see a 2 day with no maternity leave

These are great, especially for story purposes, but is there anyway to have different lengths for both Sims and Pets? Like, right now, I like having my Sims pregnant for 3 days, but I'd like my pets to be pregnant either shorter or longer.

That's absolutely possible, just download a pet pregnancy length file and don't download one for sims You can have different lengths for sims and pets.

I really like this mod! Right now I play the super long version but I think the maternity leave is too long. Could you make a 30 days version without maternity leave for me, or maybe a 20 days version without maternity leave?

Is it possible to use just the mod to alter sim pregnancy without the pets expansion pack?
