Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Update 05/27/2015: These square cartridges NOW STICK TO THE FRAME! Yay!!! Please re-download accordingly. These square cartridges & wall frame use the same GUID as the previous ones. Also, for creators of pose boxes, you can use the Template Cartridge provided in the download's section.

If you have many pose boxes taking up space on your valuable floor space, fear no more. Finally! An innovation probably too late in the making. But nonetheless available to you now. Introducing a new mesh by the folks at NCI. The Golden Wall Of Animation!

Also known as NCI's "pose picks". Pose boxes that I've used or accumulated over the years from creators like Jixs, JayDee Sims, Decorgal21752, SynapticSims, and live2draw. The original pose box or paintings of these creators have be remodeled by me as square cartridges that fit into the wall's framework. So now you can place this object anywhere you'd like without a sea of (or at least 18) pose boxes occupying the ground.

These cartridges function exactly like the original creator's pose boxes, only smaller & more convenient. You can remove their previous pose boxes without losing their animations. This animation wall functions as a shelving based on leefish's Move Over Dahlen bookcase seen here, except without the Sim approaching it to remove a book.

The wall & pose boxes are located in the following area of your Sim's catalog:
Plumbing -> Miscellaneous

Yes, it is a strange location. I figured that since that space in the catalog isn't used often, placing this wall and pose boxes will be easier to find. The pose boxes and the wall cost $4 each.

The wall itself is decorative and was made for the base game upwards. Each pose box contains animation from different EPs that are required based on the original creator's needs. Each creator is credited below, see their downloads to determine each pose box's compatibility. This download is purposely set to base game only for wider visibility through the search engine. Some pose boxes will not run with the base game. Each box number corresponds to the cartridge on the wall, with "Box 1" being the top-left corner with "Box 18" being the bottom right corner (with their numbered position being read from left-to-right, top-to-bottom order).

Polygon Counts for each square cartridge:
Faces: 12
Vertices: 24

Polygon Counts for the golden wall:
Faces: 456
Vertices: 912
