11.9.10: I will NO LONGER be taking requests for this mod. My inbox is overflowing with requests for simple changes and I just don't have the time to make all of them If you are interested in editing the file yourself.. you need to download the latest version of S3PE (http://sourceforge.net/projects/sims3tools/files/) and you can follow this tutorial to help you along (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php..._Tuning_Modding) That was the tutorial I followed to learn how to make my first mod I am MORE than happy to help ANYONE with questions.. so please feel free to ask! I will try and help you anyway I can. PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD YOUR VERSION OF THIS MOD ANYWHERE. I am simply giving you permission to edit the mod for your own personal use.

When I was testing this mod to make sure it was compatible with FLS.. I noticed the 17 day version of this pregnancy mod.. the Sim is actually pregnant for 16 days.. at least thats what its going to show you in your Sims panel but in all actuality I set the code to 408 hours.. (17 days) but its showing up as 16. This might be caused by the Sim being pregnant that extra day (the day before announcing it) so since that one day has already passed it's only showing 16.

What This Mod Does:
This mod allows your Sims to have longer pregnancies. This can be useful if you are using an age mod that allows your Sims to have longer lifespans. Below is a chart detailing how each file works in your game based on how many days you chose.

Pregnancy Length Locomotion Contractions Days Off Pregnant Buff Pregnant Motives
5 days 3 days (72 hrs) Starts at: 118 hrs 9 Starts at: 12 hrs Starts at: 12 hrs
7 days 4 days (96 hrs) Starts at: 166 hrs 11 Starts at: 24 hrs Starts at: 24 hrs
9 days 6 days (144 hrs) Starts at: 214 hrs 13 Starts at: 24 hrs Starts at: 24 hrs
13 days 10 days (240 hrs) Starts at: 310 hrs 17 Starts at: 24 hrs Starts at: 24 hrs

Changes to all files:
1. Increases both the mother and father's mood 25 points from reading a baby book.
2. 1 puddle will appear when your Sim's water breaks.
3. All pregnant Sims have a 30% chance of nausea.

Gender Bias:
There are two sets of files to chose from. One that gives you the option for a gender bias and one that does not. If you chose the file that does have the gender bias, this means that your Sim's pregnancy will be influenced by the food they eat (watermelons & apples). There are three different percentages to choose from: 30%, 50% and 75%.

Only choose one flavor to install at a time. This Mod is NOT compatible with any other mod that edits the Pregnancy_XML File.

Core Mod?
This is NOT a core mod and should not interfere with any core mods installed.
