How to Control Pets in The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs
In The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs, players will get their hands on some furry little friends. However, the developers decided to take the route that The Sims 2: Pets introduced and make all the animals unplayable, even if they were in your household. Fans that miss The Sims 3’s way, don’t worry. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. If by “will” you mean “modding community.”
Yes, indeed, simmers will be able to control their dogs and cats in the game by downloading this mod. It’s called Playable Pets and it allows them to be controlled. It literally just unlocks all of the actions that the pets would normally do. While the modders warn it is limited in its choices, there’s hope that other actions and things to do can be modded in at a later date.
This is yet another example of how the community expands the game by taking matters into their own hands. There’s an option for those of you that want total control! If you need any help with installing mods in The Sims 4, go ahead and check out our guide on that very subject over here.
