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.
*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

For some unfathomable reasons over the holidays, I had the idea to do a set based on the little devil/angel that pop up on your shoulders when you're about to make terrible life decisions. Probably came from playing one too many games of Cards Against Humanity. That's probably an entirely different pose set. Yikes. :D

... ahem. Where was I ... right, poses.

Please note! This set is in three pieces: "Tempation (Morality)," which are the slightly more 'serious' set, "Temptation (Irreverent)," which are the slightly more silly set, and "Temptation (All)" which is all 23 poses. YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD ALL THREE FILES. Only get the one you actually want in your game. Getting more than one will cause duplicates in your pose list and is unnecessary. I just split them up in case people really prefer to have one as opposed the other, and don't want another 23 poses clogging up their pose lists!

Pose tags are as follows:

"Temptation (Morality)"
The classic 'good vs. evil' struggle. With hot angels. And hot devils. And poor you in the middle. Ehehe, how convenient.

a_splad_temptation1a -- thinking
a_splad_temptation1b -- on the right, persuading
a_splad_temptation1c -- on the left, persuading

a_splad_temptation2a -- staring, happy
a_splad_temptation2b -- tempting

a_splad_temptation3a -- listening to lecture
a_splad_temptation3b -- speaking seriously

a_splad_temptation4a -- being led away
a_splad_temptation4b -- leading away
a_splad_temptation4c -- shocked

a_splad_temptation5a -- resisting
a_splad_temptation5b -- sulking
a_splad_temptation5c -- relieved


"Temptation (Irreverent)"
Morality's all well and good, but if you want to go a bit less literal and more ... surreal, with an angel and devil who might actually be friends when they're not quarreling over the same soul, this might be the set for you.

a_splad_temptation6a -- shrugging
a_splad_temptation6b -- pulling eyelid, blowing raspberry
a_splad_temptation6c -- shouting

a_splad_temptation7a -- being levitated
a_splad_temptation7b -- holding sim by arm
a_splad_temptation7c -- holding sim by leg

a_splad_temptation8a -- being dragged away
a_splad_temptation8b -- dragging sim away

a_splad_temptation9a -- fainting
a_splad_temptation9b -- catching fainting sim

You will have use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position, but they should all snap together nicely. Once you cancel, the sims will bunch up together and look insane. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well.


Things you probably want to know:
  • This set was built with a male sim and two female sims. It should work fine no matter what gender combination you use, but you may find that you get a little "clipping" or "missing" depending on how large your sims are, and what kind of clothes they're wearing. If that's the case, an alt-slide usually helps.
  • All of the angel/devil poses should work with a minimum of distortion on long dresses/skirts.
  • The model for the angel poses is about 60% fat, but you will get a greater amount of clipping if your model is larger than that.

CC List*Two things to note--the creator of this object only made this accessory for male sims. It is very simple to make the accessory useable by women, but you will need to do it for yourself if you plan to use the wings on female sims. Also, the website download link is a bit tricky to figure out. If you're having problems, click here to get some help.

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.
