Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Heya! This is my first pose pack for reading poses, it originally started as one pose I needed for a Sim photo and then I got crazy and expanded it to a total of 6 poses. This pack is pose list compatible. Please enjoy!



Due to the different way each pose holds the book, there is no one size fits all book accessory, instead the books are floating objects that fit nicely into the hands if you do not use ALT positioning. I've labelled each book with its corresponding pose, so it should be easy to work out. For the most part, the poses should properly sit on furniture that is not ALT positioned, the exceptions are read_1 and read_4, I couldn't figure out how thick the wall actually was, so the model will clip into it unfortunately.



Read_4 has the model lying on the floor, if you wish for them to be placed higher eg: a bed you'll need to either use OSMP or the Player Add-ons.

You will need to ALT position the table for read_6 so it doesn't clip into the model's knee.

Also Included in this pack are the book props. The books are found in Misc Decor and comes in 5 overlays: The Lord of the Rings trilogy (with text converted to Simlish) and 2 generic covers. They are not recolourable.

Name: Book for Read#,
Found: Misc Decor
Price: $1

Polygon Counts:
152 Faces

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.

Well thank goodness you went and got crazy. This are nice poses, and will be very useful to a lot of folks, myself included. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

Boy I wish I had this two days ago. Just did a pic for a story where the opening picture was of a Sim reading a book. I had already redid it twice, now I'll debate whether to do it a third time. But I'm sure this will come in handy later.

I could pm you a mediafire link if you don't mind the fact that it's not a hat hair, (the tips control is on the scrunchie) and that when naked, the hair turns into a Maxis default. I've never been able to fix that, it seems to be a general problem with TSRW.
