Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi!
This was my first ever request, and I'm proud that I was able to do it! ^o^

Burglars! Oh No! Thank goodness our officers were there to protect and serve! Well except for dude in the corner.....

There are 14 poses- 9 "police" poses and 5 "reaction" poses. I called some of them reaction poses because they can be paired up with the other nine poses to make a couple pose. Not sure if I'm explaining properly, take a look at the screenshots to get a better understanding.
I also FINALLY figured out how to add the "snap reset" to a posebox! so that's in there as well. A snap reset allows you to return your sim back to normal if you forget the pose you used. Pretty handy huh?

The Posebox is free and can be found in the Hobbies/Misc Section.

Here's what it looks like:

The poses are named "Police Pose 1-9" and "Reaction Pose 1-5". You can take a look at the screenshots to match up names to poses.

GUNS:
Ok, it took me FOREVER to find guns suitable for this posebox. In the end i had to recolour Locoroco's "Lara Guns" and make them available for male sims. The guns are available for download as well, just download the rar named GUNS. The guns can be found in the Glasses section. You can equip one or the both guns. Some of the poses use the left hand gun. Those poses are:
-Pose 3
-Pose 5
-Pose 8
-Pose 4 uses both guns


IMPORTANT: THE FACIAL OVERLAYS SEEN IN THE POSES ARE FROM DECORGAL'S POSEBOX AND ARE NOT INCLUDED!

EDIT: I've had to change the ep requirements for my poseboxes from basegame to Bon Voyage. The reason for this is I have BV installed, and because of this SimPE as a default made all my poseboxes compatible with BV and up. I didn't know this, so I assumed since I used no BV content, it would be compatible with base game. If anyone has any eps installed before bv, or even basegame, and is still able to download and use my poseboxes, please let me know!

Thanks to Huge Lunatic for clearing that up!
Special thanks to Knightman, at whose request I made this posebox. I think it's my best so far! :D

Thanks to the makers of simpe, milkshape3D, Dr. Pixel and wes_h for their programs/mods that make creating poseboxes easier!
Also thanks to alinetjuh of modthesims, who explained how to convert female things to male/both genders.

I love the concept of this item, but after I downloaded this it crashed at the loading screen. I've narrowed down the problem to the file called "Police-Posebox-l2d-Hack".
I'm running on just the base game. Any idea what the problem could be?

Edit: I'm having a similar problem with the Tell Me Your Wish (Genie) and Hoot poseboxes. I'm assuming it's related.

hey bookaboo,
first of all, im sorry that my poseboxes crashed your game! this has never happened to me before, and I've never gotten any reports on this happening to anyone else.. im completely puzzled. unfortunately i can't take a look at it right now because im having some serious computer problems, but ill ask on the forum if anyone knows why this might be happening. I've never run any of my poseboxes on base game though....but i can't see that being a problem... ill post on the forum and see if i get any feedback.

Thanks so much for your interest in my creations!

hey bookaboo,
I got a response on why this is happening. The problem is that because I have BV installed, SimPE as a default made all my poseboxes compatible with BV and up. So what i have to do is go back and reset things to basegame, I didn't know this, so I assumed since I used no BV custom content, it would be compatible with base game. Since I have no computer to make any changes as of now, Ill change the ep requirements for my poseboxes to BV, but when I'm able I'll make them available for base game as well. Sorry about that! and keep posted, i can let you know when I changed it so you can download.

Sorry again and thanks!

um...no. As far as I'm aware, you don't need a pose player to use poseboxes for the sims 2. You just download the import and hack files and everything should work fine.

Hey MrSuperSims,

I want to be able to make a version 2 for this posebox, with more in them. So I'll definitely include this pose in that one. When I'm finished with my outstanding requests I'll do that :D

hi lani,
what expansions do you have? I'm trying to figure out what eps run with the box as is, so if you wouldn't mind still downloading and trying it out, I'd be really grateful!

That was in the description. Hope that clears things up. I know the description is kind of long, but it has all the information you need to use the content. People should really read it before asking questions.

Edit: Oh No! I spoke too soon! Yes, the poses are great but I don't recommend using this without BV.
This item caused Build Mode to stop saving AND wiped several lot stories' HTML files!
Thank Jobs for Time Machine backups!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is really good! After all these years, I finally discover pose boxes, and this is one of the best.

FYI... works perfectly without BV in my game: Base + EPs up to and including Pets, Mac
