Modding Diary – animation revision + gender reveal cake


Hi Guys! I hope you all are doing well!

This week I revisited the couples balloon popping animation and added another 200 frames (around 7 seconds) of animation:😊

after the sims pop the balloon and going in for a hug

they would reach for each others hands

and they both turn to look at the other sims who are watching the gender reveal

the pregnant sim leans over and place their head on their partners shoulder🥺

and then they go back to their original position. I feel like this bit animation adds a little more intimacy to the interaction, and hopefully it is an addition that you like. 🥺

This week I also finished making the gender reveal cake, it took me longer than I’d like, but I throughout enjoyed the process. 😚I’ve always wanted to improve my modeling and texturing skills and this week I decided to really spend some time and get this cake as polished as possible (while staying relatively low poly, which is always a challenge 🙃). This is the second iteration of the gender reveal cake I made, Im not even gonna show you what the first version looked like, it was…pretty ugly to say the least.🫥

Next week I will start working on the cake cutting animation.

Now I know some of you have been experiencing issues with the “read to baby” interaction from the child birth mod. I am aware of the issue and I’m looking into fixing it, I have not been able to figure out the cause as it only seem to happen to some people and not others, and I have not been able to figure out why. But just know that it is being looked after and hopefully I will find a fix soon.💗I appreciate all your patience in the meantime.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Every gender reveal cake that I’ve found never has an option for boy and girl twins. It would be awesome if you could add a purple option that means both genders or something that way we don’t need two separate cakes. Either way though this cake looks beautiful, and I appreciate all the hard work you do.

Can't find what you are looking for?

No worries, we are here to help you
