Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
----------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT NOTE: It has come to my attention that the Pets EP may be required for this to work in your game. I am currently working on making this base game required only.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Heya Peeps!

This is for the Picture Takers and Story/Movie Makers out there. Here's my first Game Mod. It's SynapticSim's Flying Pose Object. It contains 15 different poses. Please sit back and enjoy the pictures:

13 - Fly Float Menacing 2 Click For Larger View
14 - Fly Float Stop Hand Click For Larger View
15 - Fly Fast Fists Down Click For Larger View

Information:

This object is cloned from the Maxis Object "The Measure of a Sim Wooden Model" which is a base game object, however, when I created the pose objects, I inadvertently pulled Pet's animations, so the Pets EP is required for now.

What is the difference between this "Pose Object" and the "Pose Boxes" that are out there?

I love pose boxes, however, one thing that drives me crazy is the requirement to go back in and stop the animation or using the Force End or Stop All. The Pose Object will queue the animation between 3 and 5 seconds, however most are 5 seconds. This is ample time to hit the "pause" button.

Who does this work for?

It works for Teens through Elders, and both genders of'course.

Where is it located in the game?

You will find this in Buy Mode under the General/Miscellaneous Category. It costs 1 simolean.

Recommendations:

I recommend using the awesome A Whole New Dimension: OMSP's by SilentLucidity. This will allow you to place your sims at varying heights to get the most out of the pose. A few of the poses aren't located off the ground quite far enough so their toes dip into the ground a bit. Use one of the OMSP's at the above link to overcome that obstacle.

I highly recommend using the Freezer Clock by treeag. This allows you to freeze only one sim in a certain pose/animation while the rest of the sims on the lot go about their business as usual.

I wouldn't recommend uploading this with your lots because some people are opposed to hacks/mods. Should you upload it however, that is fine with me, but DO NOT under any circumstance upload this to The Sims 2 Exchange or any Paysite. If you upload it to any other site, please be sure to provide a link back to this thread or to SynapticSim's Lair.

No credit is required if you use this in pictures, stories, or movies.

Please have a blast with this!

I just wanted to compliment on the excellent quality of this work. I love it!

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

Unfortunately, MTS doesn't allow both types of files to be uploaded.

ZIP or rar - You have compressed your files into a zip or rar archive (but not both).


You will have to get the free WinRAR program. Read about that here: Downloading Help

If only these animations could be mixed with either the waterslide from Seasons or marvine's "Ladder with custom animations" object to create a real, fully-functional high dive. (*whistles innocently at the blatant hint to anyone who would/could try to make it*)


SynapticSim, these are great! Sadly, I must wait for the base game version since I lack the Pets EP.

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.

MSD, that would be cool, but it's a little be out of my capabilities now. Perhaps one day, who knows.

I was actually working on the non-ep version and my monitor died on my desktop, which is where I do my sims 2 work. I haven't forgotten about it, it just has to be remade from scratch. The Fighting Poses should work for you though, maybe you could use those to hold you over.

Noo! It doesn't show up in the Misc|General catagory. I've restarted the game several times and I have all the expansions (except AL), but it still won't show up.
