I would LOVE to have a mod for gene mixing for pets since this game apparently has none. It was literally the biggest reason why I looked forward to the expansion - to be able to mix and breed my own pets.
I've tested it out with multiple breedings for Cats and Dogs alike. With ones from different sized pets (i.e. Small dog with Large dog) and with painted on coat patters I painted over the one that I chose... they all inherited either the mom's coat or the dad's coat exactly how it was on the parent... even with the custom painted markings. There's no variation. It's almost too like the female pets get the mom's patterns and the males get the dad's... I once got a female with the dad's colorings. Sometimes I get a coat that is thicker, but the fur patterns are the same. I've used ones with multiple options for the breeds too and still just the coat colors I've picked.
The painted on textures come out exactly or with the full coat from the parent too, they aren't left off to the offspring. If they were it would be a little more interesting since the offspring are like carbon copies.
It's pretty dissappointing since with the Sims3 there was so much variation and when you did a custom paint you could add more layers and then you got a big variation on the offspring. Here in Sims 4 there's coat layers but they don't really apply to genetics in the area to give new coat colors.
I love genetics and the fun part about breeding is to get those variations randomly... so far it's not fun.
