As you can see, The Sims Team focused to bring the same stylized look for Horses that they did for The Sims like shading, solid form hair and the expressive features to fit with the game.

30 breeds to choose from and 11 traits for Horses in CAS!

The Animations

Katie, the Animator, said that the Horse locomotion was a challenged for them. Since horses are known for its graceful movements, they added banking animations that allows them to do things while maintaining their graceful movements.

The developers also considered on how Sims would animate both while riding and when not riding a horse. Inexperienced riders would appear awkward and uncomfortable, and the horse would respond to their lack of skill by testing them. Developers also considered how will the horse react to the Sims and vice versa. We’ll see more of that when the pack comes out!

The Inspiration

The Sims Team made trips to a local equestrian center for the team to experience firsthand the horses. They even bonded with them to feel and understand horses. So cute, right!?
