This mod replaces every UI portrait pose with a static, neutral, slightly rotated one. simNopke-DRUIPoses-static-sims replaces the sim poses, while simNopke-DRUIPoses-static-pets replaces the pet ones.

The portraits may not update immediately after you have installed the files. If you don't want to wait for a new look, change appearance of your Sims or pets by using a mirror. The portraits of dead Sims update only when their ghosts appear.



Conflicts
Do not use simNopke-DRUIPoses-static-sims with any other default replacement UI portrait poses for Sims, such as poses by Hexagonal Bypiramid.
Do not use simNopke-DRUIPoses-static-pets with any other default replacement UI portrait poses for pets.

This is even better than Hexagonal Bipyramid's static poses (which I've been using for a few years now). I love that you included a version for pets too - I hate those goofy poses. Also, dead @ zombie!Nervous. xD

There is a small bug. Sometimes both of the Sim icons disappear. It seems that you might've forgotten to replace one of the UI Animations maybe?

I'm feeling like an idiot right now, but I cannot figure out what this is. What portraits are these? Sorry...I might look at this on a less stressful day and make sense of it, but not today...

@jengelbart Could you describe that situation more precisely? Age, gender, occult state of the affected sim at least. I haven't ever observed such situation. If I forgot to replace an UI animation, sims sometimes would get one of the default poses in their portraits.
@lach61 It's about this:

@Nopke
Sim was about to shower, when he changed in the naked clothing both of his Icons disappeared. After he got out of the shower the icons fixed themselves.
The second time he showered everything was normal but the third time it happened again. I took out all of the Hacks/CC's except for this mod and even repaired Ts2 through Origin and made a new TS2 Folder with this mod included.
It seems it's this mod which causes that :/ Even tested with a new test family but same results with no CC/hacks except this mod and a new TS2 Folder.

Edit: Should've mentioned: YA on college.

@jengelbart I'm very surprised because I've played with the older version for at least one year and I haven't ever observed such behavior… I haven't changed the poses of teens, young adults, adults or elders in the new version. Try to delete Groups.cache and Accessory.cache from Documents\EA Games\The Simsâ„¢ 2 Ultimate Collection. Those files sometimes get corrupted and cause strange game behavior even if you take out whole CC and mods.
Edit: Have you tried to run the game without my packages and to check if the problem still occurs? Could you tell me what is your graphics card? I'm really confused.

@Nopke: Yeah, I tried that and it's all normal without your mod :/. I'm playing with Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB.

@jengelbart Have you tried to redownload the zip file and unpack it using another file archiver? Sometimes files get corrupted while downloading or unpacking. Once I had a problem with WinRAR that was corrupting contents of an archive. When I used 7-zip, the problem disappeared.

@jengelbart And it hasn't worked? So I'll be waiting for another report of that bug… I can't figure out why it occurred.

I've tried other UI poses, but I think I'm definitely gonna stick with this one. Thank you, again, for sharing! <3
