The Sims 3 Pets: early details from E3 PDF Print

E3As anticipated yesterday, today The Sims 3 Pets is shown at E3, and the first articles about the Create a Pet screen are already available. Let's learn together the early details about the pet creator tool (at least for horses, cats and dogs. No information is available for other species) thanks to GameMarshal.comSims3Gamer!

Horses have been the main course of the event and the only pets shown as the game is still under development. The tool allows you to create only adult pets, but they can mate and have an offspring (different breeds can mate but different species cannot - you can't cross a dog with a horse, for example!).
The pets customization is similar to the Sims', and their genetics is passed down in the same way. You can also cross breeds and create unique animals! There are many sliders for each body part (you can also make different eye-colored pets), but Sims3Gamer said the customization is not as complete as it was for The Sims 2. Amy, the author of the articole, said she's going to have some free time to try the tool again tomorrow, and she's willing to find out more because she hasn't been able to add, for example, the fetlock feathering.
Also, there are different channels for horses: the main color, mane, tail and accessories. They can all be edited with the Create a Style tool. Everyone claims horses are the best-looking pets of the game, while cats and dogs look a bit too much like The Sims 2's.
As for traits, they work in the same way of Sims', and each one has its own animation and interactions. We don't know if they can be passed down or not.

Then again, it looks like Pets will include a new neighborhood, as after a direct question producers answered "You'll just have to wait and see..".
We hope to find new information about The Sims 3 Pets very soon!
