Selling Pets

«1
I just watched the livestream, and they said we can sell puppies and kittens. A guru also seems to have confirmed it on Twitter (saw it on SimsVIP). I thought they said previously that we could only give them away? Did they change that?

    Maybe they heard that people wanted to be able to sell puppies and kittens, so they changed it? Either way, I guess we won't find (at the very least) until the gameplay livestream in 3 weeks.

    I checked the events page on their Twitch and the Vets livestream is Oct. 26, two weeks away. Gameplay is Nov. 2, which is 3 weeks.

    I heard you can move pets into other households via household management, didn't hear selling was a thing. May be wrong on the last part.

    I was jk ;) Although I guess it's fairly possible they'll say something about it then too since they've already confirmed (I think anyway?) that you can't sell your pets @ the vet, so perhaps they'll reveal a tiny bit more =)

    I hope this is true! Bit weird that they seem to have gone back on what they said... it might be like you said, that they changed it, but I'm also thinking he might have said 'sell' very loosely and that you don't make money from it and it is in fact just giving them away... idk, I guess we'll see in a later livestream but I would so love it if we could sell them! :)

    I think they misspoke about selling pets now. I think it's still just give away.

    They clearly said in the stream you can sell puppies and kittens. But they also said that puppy mills are controversial, so you wouldn't be able to sell them in a store, only on your home lot. Which doesn't matter, for a lot of people it encourages a puppy mill gameplay as an easy way to earn simoleons with pet breeding.

    I wondered the same thing. Maybe they took "sell" to mean "give away" and just use the two interchangeably without realizing how confusing that might sound to the community? I noticed they did something similar when they answered the "can we select pets" question. They said we couldn't control them, and I'm not sure if they meant "control" as "select" or if they simply misunderstood what the viewer was asking. So, it's possible that they're using some terms interchangeably.

    @floridameerkat That's what I'm thinking. I was also a bit confused about the skilling question if I'm honest, when they said that the training skill was a sim skill not a pet skill, but that pets would still get better at agility... I'm still not sure if pets gain a skill or not :tongue:

    It's probably like the parenting skill: your sim gains pet training skill the more they train but your pets learn what you teach them. without needing a skill bar for each thing. If we get a sort of UI for pets maybe we can see badges of what they learned.

    He didn't say it straight into the camera like he was giving out info, he said it off-handedly to another guru. And they all don't obviously know everything about the pack. They also stated that you can't age pets up with aging off, but there is a tweet that says the vet can sell you a treat or you can make one that will age them up.

    I hope we can get that clarified in a couple weeks at the next livestream. If not earlier.

    They said you could sell puppies and kittens born in your home and they would go to “rescue” to be adopted. It was stated several times.

    I wonder if they mean "sell" as in get money or more as in give away to be adopted for free? I'm very confused. It seems selling in your home would be more controversial than having a legitimate business. I kind of wish there could be pet shops(or maybe pounds/adoption centers?), I think it would be cool to take your sim to look at & interact with different pets before buying/adopting one.

    I think the next live stream starts in 13 minutes on twitch

    I hope it's the ability to sell pets. I can understand why they wouldn't want to put that in as a "not supporting puppy mills" kind of thing, but to be able to sell pups/kittens and maybe the puppies are worth more if their parents are trained up? That would be cool, in my opinion.

    Anyway, I'm a little disappointed that we can't have some kind of adoption center/shelter. I think that would be the coolest thing ever and it is a dream of mine to have one in real life.

    I don't know if it was stated multiple times, but I know it was at least stated once in today's livestream. I can't give you a time stamp because I can't find a video of the stream at the moment, but it was when they were talking about litters and how many puppies or kittens there can be in one litter (1-3). Someone asked if you can sell the puppies and kittens if you don't want to keep them all.

    SimsVIP has a replay of the livestream.

    well I'm looking forward to news

    It's about 1 hour and 8 minutes into the live stream where selling pets from home and the puppy mill stuff is mentioned. Also they say at about 1 hour 2 minutes that pets can be sold.
