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!

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.

Tanuki:
"{Wild tanuki at Fukuyama, HiroshimaTanuki (狸 or タヌ&#12461 is the common Japanese name for the Japanese raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus). They have been part of Japanese folklore since ancient times. The legendary tanuki is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absent-minded.

Tanuki is often somewhat mistakenly translated as raccoon or badger into English, animals which are similar to tanuki in appearance, but actually belong to different Carnivora families.}"

That enough trivia for ya? (from freeDictionary online)

Cute name for a resourceful animal.
