This is a desperate plea to cat-loving modders everywhere!
"Take pity on me, masters! This is more annoying than someone stealing me frying pan!"
CDPR must have really hated cats and loved dogs!
Every cat in the game arches its back and hisses when Geralt gets within a few paces of them... it's just not natural cat behaviour. Even feral cats are far more likely to simply move away than try to provoke a fight with a much larger opponent... they're just not that stupid!
Dogs on the other hand are quite likely to growl or bark.
Yet in TW3 dogs are all placid and cats are all rabid idiots!
My ideal mod would be one where some cats come up and rub against Geralt's legs if he stands still too long, but I'd settle for the vast majority of cats not behaving like maniacs!
Geese and chickens behave reasonably naturally, as do sheep and all other domesticated animals... just not the cats. Actually domesticated geese are quite likely to hiss at strangers. They were originally used by peasants as 'guard dogs'. Their behaviour alerted the owners to trespassers. Chicxkens won't do anything to help their owners. I'm not wanting goose behaviour altered (it'd be nice though). I just want cat behaviour less annoying and more realistic.
Come on modders... you know it makes sense! For me it'll be like gettin' a frying pan I can see meself in! And what could be better than that?
I've always wondered about trying my hand at TW3 modding as well as Skyrim... maybe I'll have to start with this!
