So, AliceSacco came to me with this request a while back. And I'm finally finished! I'm so ashamed of the length of time it took me to finish..... what with school, computer problems and my meshing addiction, I almost didn't make it! I hope she'll be satisfied with it though.

So for the ever patient AliceSacco, I present a whole heap of Swimming/Pool poses for your sims! :D

So a few things to talk about here. it most likely will be long, so please bear with me! :/

The poses are all named, so no pose1, pose2, pose3 to get you confused. They're grouped according to similarity, so all the strokes (eg breast stroke, back stroke) will be under the strokes pie string, all the dives will be under the dives pie string and so on. Because of this, I've grouped the poses in the screenshots in the same way. that way you'll know which poses fall under where. the heading on the side of the screenshots tell you which pie strings they fall under.

The poses made for in the water:
Ok so for these it's best you use the moveobjects cheat, put the sim in the water standing up, then use whatever pose you want. If you use the in-water poses on land, your sim will sink into the ground and it'll take you a while to find 'em, save resetting them of course.

So if you want your sim to look like if he/she just dived from a highboard, it's best to use an OMSP. the original height of the dive poses is compatible with the original maxis diveboard. So if you want to alternate, you can! there's a lot of OMSP's out there, I used these ones I found on realize a dream because you don't need OFB or the magisplay tray. check them out here: http://realizeadream.wordpress.com/...o-ofb-required/

Interactive Poses:
There are a couple of interactive poses (ie. two sims interacting with each other), namely the ones under the "special" pie string. There's a couple where a sim is giving CPR, and one where the sim is pulling the passed out sim out of the water. Now for these, just so it won't be too difficult to position them, I moved the pose far away from the base slot. So don't be surprised if you use those poses and your sim moved away from it's original spot. It's supposed to do that lol.

There's also a snap reset, just in case you forget which pose you used.

The posebox is $1, and can be found in the Hobbies/Misc section.

ok I think that's it. *exhales*. Special thanks to AliceSacco, who came up with this great idea, and was patient enough to put up with my craziness.....
Thanks to Dr. Pixel, Wes_H, SimPE, and everyone else who helped with making poseboxes so fun and easy!
I have a lot of awesome creators to credit too.
