This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I meant to make this set forever ago, but life was distracting and what-not. Plus it was ugly and the models wouldn't cooperate, which is totally normal when I have a "great idea." So I threw it in the "hiatus" folder and forgot about it. Now that I'm busy and swamped with work, I spend at least an hour daily making horrific stick-figure doodles when I'm meant to be working. And every now and again, I browse my old folders and find my old stuff. This time, the Milkshape models cooperated. Huzzah!

Although the original idea for this set was to be someone leaving (and that someone's someone arguing with them all the way out of the door), I modified it a bit so that some of the poses would be usable on their own. ... what, you don't sprawl all over the bed when you sleep?

1. Waking up, squinting. (Can be used alone.)
2. Asleep. (Can be used alone.)
2b. Waking up, looking to the left. (Can be used alone.)
3. Sitting on the bed's edge, holding head. (Can be used alone.)
4. Reaching out for sim's shoulder.
5. Buttoning pants.
5b. Dusting off clothes. (Note: bigger sims/meshes will get clipping here.)
6. Walking away.
7. Holding sim by the arm. (Note: bigger sims/meshes will get clipping here.)
8. Sneaking out.
8b. Running out crying.
9. Looking out of the window. (Use the "alt" button to slide your sim up to the window.)


Poses 1, 2, 2b and 3 work well on single beds too.


Enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh gosh, this will be so useful for my womanising vampire sim... One can never have too many poses, after all. Now all I need is some more smoking-related poses and I'd be all set for him!

Ms. Spladoum -- these are so lovely that I want to use them, but so emotionally evocative that I'd nearly worry about putting my Sims through the experience. Your faces, especially, are breathtaking. Usually, when I look at a pose set, I think "could be useful, I'll download 'em for later". But after looking at these, my throat's still tight, as though I were staring out the window beside your model.
