About This File
November 15, 2011 - Added version for base game. All items are found under Miscellaneous/Miscellaneous. I have tested this in Sims Life Stories and it did work, so it should work for everyone who has any base game combination without Pets or above. Pets version the items are found under Miscellaneous/Pets.
Updated May 6, 2011 - I have fixed the problems found by Raynuss - Bull sometime reporting it was a female, and the cow disappearing. Please redownload and replace the original files, all file names are the same and the previous version. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I have also disabled visitor ability to milk the cows.
Test version of my cattle. These randomly run around your lots. They have two needs which are social and hunger.
All items are found under Miscellaneous/Pets.
To purchase the cows, bulls, and calves you must first place the sign on you lot, then click on it to purchase your selection. Calves require a cow to take care of their needs. To change their texture you have to use the design tool under buy mode, just as you would recolor other items.
There is a feed trough and water trough, they will need to fill their hunger needs.
Sims have an option to pet cows and bulls, which will increase their social.
A Straw bed is available for their sleeping, but not required, and allows for both pigs and cows to use for sleeping.
Calves will grow up to be adults after three days.
There is a slaughter option. This is something I'd like to change eventually, but for now you have to purchase the slaughter table in order to slaughter a cow, and the cooked version will be left on the table.
Credits: rumbecome at MTS for making me aware of the farmsims site. Farmsims for some of the coding and animations. He did put a lot of work into the updates of these and I want to thank him for that.
Note: These will conflict with the versions that Farmsims has for sale on his site. I have made numerous changes, that have taken me weeks to complete, and while he did violate my policy by selling them, I do appreciate the hard work he put into them to improve them.
Unfortunately these items take a lot of time to complete, for those wondering about horses and sheep....they are coming soon.
