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!

ORIGINAL VERSION: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=439076

[B]Base Game Compatible!


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

These poses are all my poses, I did not re-create them from The Sims 2 like the original Depression poses!

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.

FAQ
What does VIGA mean?
VIGA means 'Vain Is a Great Attitude'

Whenever I click on the PP, it says 'no interactions available'?
make sure you have your mods installed in the correct place (located above)

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
On Floor, hands on ground: Sr_DepressedToneViga_one
On floor, head in knees: Sr_DepressedToneViga_two
On Bed, arm on bed: Sr_DepressedToneViga_three

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.

Great mod! Well done for your hard work!
But I'm kinda having trouble with it, when I use the ones where they sit down or lie on the bed poses, they have to get up to do them, my sim can't do them sitting down :/ is there any way I can stop them from getting up?
Thanks

Well, you are supposed to type in the code..then move them on the bed/chair with moveobjects. Not type in the code while they are on the bed/chair

Do you mean the poses don't work or the pose player itself doesn't work?
You have to type in the names of the poses with this set, because the creator hasn't updated it to use the Pose by List selection.

Although, I really wish the creator would, since I would love to use these poses but it takes a lot of time and effort to remember which pose is named what. >_>

Hi, SIMul8rReviews
I really liked your poses and I really want to try them but the problem is, your poses aren't updated to work with the new pose list, so I hope you would update them soon.

Thank you.

I do not plan on updating any of the Depression poses anytime soon.

I'm sure it takes alot of time and effort to enter a pose name into the pose player . I'm sorry, but that's laziness right there.. it doesn't take a week to find the correct pose name and enter it into the pose player.

I love this set and wanted it for the pose list. I seen that it hadn't been updated so I thought I would update it for you. I have not shared it with anyone and do not take any credit for your hard work. You will find that all the pics are yours from this download with all the information you provided. Its been tested and worked. If you would like it to update your download let me know. I can email it to you. You can also message me on facebook jameesnuffer.
