Feed Your Pets: Feedable Live Aliens

Jump to Patch Notes

Just like my Feedable Frogs, you can now feed the live aliens. It works exactly the same: Every 8 hours Teen-Elder sims can feed the frogs and get a 4 hour happy buff. It also gives a bit of a Responsibility boost. There is an addon for Children to feed the aliens as well, but it’s not currently basegame compatible and requires Eco Lifestyle.

Plus: Squeamish sims get a different buff and GTW aliens get their own custom buffs and the option to talk to the alien pet!

This overrides the tuning of the EA objects, giving them my custom tuning. It will conflict with anything else that modifies that tuning, such as ShortE815’s Name Frogs and Live Aliens. But the good news is that I’ve added naming to my mod as well so you shouldn’t need that anymore.

This affects all Basegame live aliens, but I didn’t screenshot them all because that would be tedious for me and redundant for you. They all work the same.

Details

  • Ilex_ALL_FeedPetsShared is required for all of my Feed Your Pets mods
  • Probably obvious, but to get the custom GTW alien buff you'll need to be playing as a GTW alien. GTW isn't required for the mod to work, just for those buffs to appear.
  • To see the Squeamish buff you'll need Outdoor Retreat or Misery Traits. Nothing will break if you don't have those, but the buff will never be triggered.
The new strings are in:
  • English
  • French
  • Polish (missing some newer strings)
  • Russian
I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate this myself so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.
  • Vanessa Sims - French translation
  • JOKERS - Polish translation
  • SER_KISYAN - Russian translation
  • Aarathiel - Polish translation

Addons

Requires Eco Lifestyle
  • Without this addon only teen-elder will be able to feed the aliens.
  • If I find a better basegame animation this addon will be removed.

Known issues

  • Yes, the buff icon is a squid. I’m not an artist so it was the best thing I found. If you’ve got a better suggestion I welcome it
  • The animations don’t look exactly like they’re going in the tank but use your imagination. I’m also not an animator so I’ve gotta work with what already exists.

Future plans

  • Find a basegame compatible animation for kids
  • An alternate version that includes a food object
  • If you know of any other custom traits that should get the Squeamish buff let me know here or on Discord!

Thank you!

Patch Notes

Feed Your Pets: Feedable Live Aliens

  • Fixed an incorrect tuning ID in the FeedPetsChild addon. If you downloaded v1.4 earlier please update to v1.4.1
  • Updated the FeedPetsChild addon to work with the new mod I'm posting this evening.
  • This is shared tuning so as long as you get v1.4 from one of these posts you don’t need to download it 4 times.
  • Added missing Polish string from Aarathiel
  • Updated the English strings to use the new pronouns on the “Alien’s Best Friend” buff.
  • If you play in a language I don’t have a translation for it will continue to use the old English string with “them” since you don’t have a way to set the pronouns.
  • Updated the FeedPetsChild addon to work with the most recent version of Feedable Fish.
  • This is shared tuning so as long as you get v1.3 from one of these posts you don’t need to download it 3 times.
  • Fixed a bug where the GTW alien strings weren’t all showing up. I know they worked at some point so I guess I just broke something somewhere along the line. Whatever, it’s fixed now.
  • If you don’t have GTW you can skip this update because you’ll never see the string anyway.
  • Added French translation from Vanessa Sims
  • Added a new moodlet if sims feeding the alien have certain traits. Squeamish sims will be uncomfortable instead of happy. I also added compatibility with NateTheL0ser’s Misery Traits by applying this buff to Alien Hater sims!
  • Added Polish translation from JOKERS
