Regarding Seasons Update

For those of you who aren't certain, I have tested and can confirm that this mod works with the seasons update.

Brief Overview

The Sims 4: Cats and Dogs' pet pregnancy system is considerably more robust than in its predecessors, even distinguishing between cats and dogs. Despite this, no real attempt to actually simulate the symptoms of dog and cat pregnancy has been made. Being as I've read about what should be expected of a pregnant dog, I've decided to correct this for dogs. This mod tweaks and expands upon the XML tuning of dog pregnancy to attempt to encourage the sort of behaviors that might be seen in real life pregnant dogs. Early on, they will require more attention and may not eat as much, but as pregnancy progresses, their appetite will increase and they will spend more time alone.



Detailed Description

Dog pregnancy can be broken down into 5 stages, which correspond to how distended the dog's belly is.


Stage One
This is when the pregnancy has not been revealed to the player yet. The dog will desire more attention than usual and will be less playful and hungry than usual.

*Affection decays twice as fast

*The decay of hunger and play are cut by 1/4 and 1/2 respectively


Stage Two
The first trimester. The dog will be even less hungry than before, and will still desire above average attention, though not as much. They will rarely play now (this last one sticks for the remainder of pregnancy).

*Affection decay is accelerated by 1/2

*Play decay is cut by 3/4

*Hunger decay is cut in half


Stage Three
The second trimester. The dog will start to feel less comfortable than usual and have a harder time getting around. The dog will experience an increase in appetite as well as getting tired faster. They may also spend more time unloading.

*Default emotion changes to "Uncomfortable"

*Dog will stop running and prefer walking (akin to the pregnant waddle)

*Bladder, Hunger, Energy and Bowel decay is accelerated by 1/2

*Dog may vomit during this stage


Stage Four
The third trimester. The dog's appetite will increase further as will energy loss. It also becomes harder to distract them from their discomfort and they will prefer to be alone. They will spend more time sitting and lying down as well.

*Affection decay is cut in half

*Bowels, Bladder, Hunger, and Energy decay twice as fast


Stage Five
Labor. The dog will be visibly uncomfortable, and spend a lot of time panting and pacing around the house. They will likely be very tired by the time birth happens.

*Energy decays four times as fast (to represent exhaustion from the birthing process)

*All other motives will pretty much stagnate


Installation

Simply place the package file in My Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods and make sure mods are enabled in-game. I also recommend using this alongside a mod that makes pregnancy last longer, otherwise, the effects of this mod may not be very potent.

Potential Conflicts

This mod will likely conflict with anything that touches the dog pregnancy object states and handler moodlets. Specifically:

PregnantDog_SecondTrimester
PregnantDog_ThirdTrimester
All moodlets named "buff_Pregnancy_<name-of-stage>_PetDog"
