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.
STOP! Do you have a Pose Player? If you don't, go here and get one. Poses are unusable without a Pose Player, so if you skip this step now, you'll be sorry!

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

D'awww, this date went well. Really, really well. (For those of you looking for a date that went bad, really, really bad, it's here. )

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_blinddate1 -- male pose, walking down the sidewalk
a_splad_blinddate2 -- female pose, walking down the sidewalk
a_splad_blinddate3 -- male pose, opening car door (or gesturing)
a_splad_blinddate4 -- female pose, standing with hands in front
a_splad_blinddate5 -- male pose, sitting on ground, holding sim
a_splad_blinddate6 -- female pose, lying on ground, being held by sim
a_splad_blinddate7 -- female pose, lying on ground, being kissed by sim
a_splad_blinddate8 -- male pose, lying on ground, kissing sim on cheek
a_splad_blinddate9 -- female pose, sitting on stairs, being held by sim
a_splad_blinddate10 -- male pose, sitting on stairs, holding sim
a_splad_blinddate11 -- female pose, having hand kissed
a_splad_blinddate12 -- male pose, kissing hand

Poses 7 and 8 were specifically designed with the beach in mind. Sims' fingers and feet are meant to be semi-buried in the sand. Keep this in mind if you use them indoors--you may need to use an OMSP to raise them a little so that they're not digging into a hardwood floor. :D

You will have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position for all poses. Once you cancel the pose action, the sims will bunch together and look ridiculous. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well.

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.
