I always felt like there’s a part of The Sims 3 that I didn’t fully explore or see. Back in the day when The Sims 3 Pets came out (I can’t believe it’s been so long that I’m using ”back in the day” term for this pack) I was struggling with my PC so I didn’t really explore the full potential of this pack like I intended to. Luckily, it came to my senses recently to revisit this pack and boy am I surprised with what I’ve missed out on.
I’ve mainly focused on the presets and options that were given to me at first like choosing a breed, the shape of the fur, the tail and so on.
But, what I really never fully discovered are the features behind the ”Advanced Mode” button.
You open up a whole new panel of settings with a click of a button. I remember selecting this button about two or three times a few years ago but it never really occured to me to check out what each option does.
You can change the lenght of your pet’s fur, density and curliness…
Add multiple layers of different patterns…
And what’s best, you can pick several markings, color them however you want and place them absolutely anywhere on your pet! You can even resize them and make them more narrow or wide.
You can literally go overboard..
You can even save your wacky designs and use them for later:
The fun doesn’t stop there. You can take full control over your pet’s body shape. Okay, maybe not that full but you still had more options that regular sims have.
I mean, just look at these eye customization options!
All of these options extend to dogs…
..and horses as well!
Did you know about these features and did you (and do you still) use them?
