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.
READ THIS FIRST BEFORE DOWNLOADING!!:
-You need to have downloaded and installed cmomoney's 'Pose Player' for these custom poses to work!
Download 'Pose Player' Here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=438706



THIS IS NOT A CORE MOD, SCRIPT MOD, OR TUNING MOD. IT WILL NOT CONFLICT!

You are able to have other custom poses/animations with this mod installed!

Not all of these poses are EXACTLY the same as the 'Depression' pose box from TS2, they are similar to it though. And some of them are my own pose ideas and not apart of the original

Base Game Compatible!

Install this mod in the normal place: C://User/Documents/ElectronicArts/TheSims3/Mods/Packages...

Attention!:
Part 2 of 'Depression' is now available! http://www.modthesims.info/d/440088

What does this do?
It does not modify any features, conflict with any existing animations, or conflict with other mods.
It is simply adding clip names into the game, it allows the Pose Player to pick up the names so the Pose Player will be able to play your animation.


INSTRUCTIONS (Updated 4/14/11)
-Step One:
Make sure Pose Player is installed into your Mods/Packages Folder
-Step Two:
Buy the Pose Player, and select 'Pose By Name' and enter one of the 10 pose names (Located below or on pictures) and click the 'check'
-Step Three:
Your sim should now be in the custom pose

Names Of Poses
Arms across chest: Sr_DepressedTone_one
On Floor, fetal position: Sr_DepressedTone_two
Arm across chest, to left arm: Sr_DepressedTone_three
Sitting, elbow on table: Sr_DepressedTone_four
Sitting, arm on knee: Sr_DepressedTone_five
On Floor, Crying: Sr_DepressedTone_six
Hands Covering Ears: Sr_DepressedTone_seven
Laying down, hand over face: Sr_DepressedTone_eight
Sitting, Relaxed with arm on rest: Sr_DepressedTone_nine
Sitting, Head on table: Sr_DepressedTone_ten

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.

Hurray for new poses! Gosh these are nice, my mind is already thinking of new pictures to take with these. But the way the hand is in these, like in 5 or 3, where that one hand is all flat out looks odd. Would it be possible to make the fingers curl and separated a bit, you know, a more natural look.

Thank you so much for you comment, about pose 5.. i believe you are talking about the arm that is dangling, it was my intension to have her hand open so it would not look like a malfunction on the pose
as for pose 3, I tried my best to make it as curled as i could.. but if i were to make it any more curled it would have interfered with the clothing

Thanks for sharing. I won't have to think up any poses at all with all the talented modders around making poses for us, like yourself. Thanks.

Thanks for replying to me, but with the whole pose 3 thing I don't think you really got I meant. The left curled hand is fine, I get the whole sleeve issue. What I mean is the right hand, how it just is like, I don't know how to properly word this, there? The hand is just straight with the thumb sticking out, it isn't a very natural way to keep your hand. Sorry for being nit picky or if that is what you actually intended to do.

I see what you mean, and no don't feel like that i love honest opinions, they help me improve more!
Yes, this is something I should work on.. I intend to work on that and some other of the poses that are having some issues. Thank you! :D

These look great. I agree about the hands being flat in 3 and 5. A hand can definitely look like that it just looks a little uncomfortable. My favorite pose is the one where her head is on the kitchen table and her hands are over her head.
Also, is pose six a sim praying? I can't really tell from the angle.
These look beautiful and very natural.

Edit:
It also looks like the left hand in pose ten might go through the right arm, but I'm thinking that might look different from different angles as well. Since her arms are the same color it's not very noticeable anyway and doesn't really bother me, and I have no idea how you'd fix that anyway.

No, if you look they're crying on their knees.

A custom pose for depressed poses? These are perfect! I have a depressed sim in mind, and these poses are excellent! Thank you for putting this together.

Good job on the posses

Is it my eyes or is there only one picture with a clear shot to her face. I can't really tell if she is showing any facial expression or not.

Or is this set of posses only include body posses and the facial expression is random or CAS type blank?

I just printed a list of all possible poses, in font Arial size 7 in three columns on each paper, and I have 3 A4 papers full.

Just saying, pie menus for this amount of options = crazy.
