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:

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.


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!

That's the first I'm hearing of any reports like this. Are you positive that you have it installed in the My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/Downloads folder? And that you have unpackaged it using WinRAR? There is no reason why it should not show up. You must be on a residential lot in buy mode.

The only EP required for this one will be Pets.

Default OFB test results
I'll went and tested this in OFB.

Results: Pets requirement confirmed. On "Preparing Bacon for Homeward Transportation," the main load screen froze solid.

It is now safe to change the wording "may require" to "is confirmed to require." There's no ambiguity to it anymore.

You can find me on the Sims 4 Gallery as DozerfleetProd. If you have XBox One or PS4, please test out my creations, and let me know if / how well they work on consoles.

You can try, but it probably won't work. The Sims2Pack Clean Installer only works if you are installing a sims2pack. This isn't a sims2pack file.
