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.
You will need the pose player to use these poses! They WILL NOT WORK without it!

A friend of mine asked me to help her out by making a diving pose. I decided to go ahead and make a full set out of it.



Pose Names / Descriptions:
a_k2_diving_01 :: Closed pike
a_k2_diving_02 :: Kick-out / Take-off
a_k2_diving_03 :: Backwards take-off
a_k2_diving_04 :: Backwards take-off / Twist
a_k2_diving_05 :: Free position / Twist
a_k2_diving_06 :: Open pike
a_k2_diving_07 :: Tuck
a_k2_diving_08 :: Lineup / Entry
a_k2_diving_09 :: Completed dive / underwater

Notes:
You will likely need to use OMSP to position these poses. On ground, pose #08 will seem to be flying really high, but when placed over a pool it will appear just above the water line as if the diver is about to make entry. Pose #9, when placed above a pool, will be underwater.

Items used in the screenshots:
Thanks to Kimwriter75 for making the diving set used in the photographs!
All items in the screenshots are base game or store.

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.

The diving boards aren't custom objects and won't be released. It's a photography set a friend of mine built using basic tools from buy/build in game. It isn't even a full lot. There isn't much more to it than what is shown in the photos.

But we do have diving in Sims 3 Seasons, so we'll obviously have a diving board then.

I don't know of any. What is shown in the pictures is just a photography "set", there is nothing more to it than what is show in the pictures.

Whoa, these poses are just amazing! I hope you'll do other sports related poses, like swimming, volley, athletics, etc. Good job!

Edit: Even fencing would be cool!

This is cool because some poses can be multi-purposed. You know flipping off a building and such. Thanks!
