Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
----------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT NOTE: It has come to my attention that the Pets EP may be required for this to work in your game. I am currently working on making this base game required only.

Heya Peeps!

This is for the Picture Takers and Story/Movie Makers out there. Here's my first Game Mod. It's SynapticSim's Flying Pose Object. It contains 15 different poses. Please sit back and enjoy the pictures:

15 - Fly Fast Fists Down Click For Larger View

Information:

This object is cloned from the Maxis Object "The Measure of a Sim Wooden Model" which is a base game object, however, when I created the pose objects, I inadvertently pulled Pet's animations, so the Pets EP is required for now.

What is the difference between this "Pose Object" and the "Pose Boxes" that are out there?

I love pose boxes, however, one thing that drives me crazy is the requirement to go back in and stop the animation or using the Force End or Stop All. The Pose Object will queue the animation between 3 and 5 seconds, however most are 5 seconds. This is ample time to hit the "pause" button.

Who does this work for?

It works for Teens through Elders, and both genders of'course.

Where is it located in the game?

You will find this in Buy Mode under the General/Miscellaneous Category. It costs 1 simolean.

Recommendations:

I recommend using the awesome A Whole New Dimension: OMSP's by SilentLucidity. This will allow you to place your sims at varying heights to get the most out of the pose. A few of the poses aren't located off the ground quite far enough so their toes dip into the ground a bit. Use one of the OMSP's at the above link to overcome that obstacle.

I highly recommend using the Freezer Clock by treeag. This allows you to freeze only one sim in a certain pose/animation while the rest of the sims on the lot go about their business as usual.

I wouldn't recommend uploading this with your lots because some people are opposed to hacks/mods. Should you upload it however, that is fine with me, but DO NOT under any circumstance upload this to The Sims 2 Exchange or any Paysite. If you upload it to any other site, please be sure to provide a link back to this thread or to SynapticSim's Lair.

No credit is required if you use this in pictures, stories, or movies.

Please have a blast with this!

simathome, most objects of this nature (i.e. pose boxes) that you find will only work for Teens and up. The reason for this is because Toddlers and Children have a completely different skeleton than the Teens and Elders do. It would require a seperate animation to be made for their specific skeletons. So basically, it's easier to do it for Teens - Elders because they share a common skeleton. I might make a version for children at a later date, but I rarely use children in my game and I want to focus on other animations first. First and foremost, I make this stuff for me. I guess when I need it for children I'll make one for them. Hope you understand.

Thanks for creating this but I tested this out in my game and it doesn't work I can't even click on the object to bring up the menu. Do I need an EP for it to work? I have Uni, Nightlife, OFB, and Seasons.
Thanks.

Brilliant work, thanks so much!

They look good. By any chance, are they connected to the swimming and diving board animations? They sure look similar.

That's odd. An EP should not be required for this because I cloned a base game object so it should be compatible whether you have EP's or not. The only thing I can think of is do you have CEP installed. If not, you might want to try installing that and see if it will work then. I'll have to do some further testing on a different computer.

Nope, these poses are done by hand in Milkshape.

Thanx! Those costumes are my own creation. I will probably upload them to my site at a later date. The link is in my sig.
