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.
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!



*6/6 -- Edited to be compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

Whoops! Party a little too hard last night? Or ... maybe you just haven't had your coffee yet. Suuuuure. Four rather slouchy poses for your wiped-out Simmies!

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_badmorning1 -- draped over the couch's side
a_splad_badmorning2 -- on the floor, head resting on the couch
a_splad_badmorning3 -- propped up on elbow
a_splad_badmorning4 -- holding head and stomach


If you go from one pose to the next by using the pre-set list, you will only have to place the sim (using "moveobjects on") for the first pose. The sim will position themselves automatically for the other three. Once you cancel, the sim will stand in the middle of the couch as though it were an object. This is okay! Just direct the sim to walk away and all will be well.

These poses were designed on the "Sofa LE" couch, which has relatively narrow arms. This really only affects Pose 1, which will clip badly on a couch with thick arms. Examples of couches that will not work for Pose 1 are The Cathari-Couth, The Colonel's Couch, and the Forte Sofa. Pose 1 will work on The Suitable Sofa and Super Sunshine Happy Sofa if you use the "alt" button to re-position your sim. Another thing to note is that Poses 1 and 2 will work on loveseats. Once again, you will probably need the "alt" button to slide your sims into correct positioning.

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.

These are awesome ^^
I've been wondering, how are people able to line the animations up so well with objects such as couches, beds and even other sims for couples poses?

I have no idea how to get such things into milkshape :s

You open a couch/bed/countertop/etc. in TSRW or Blender, and export the mesh as a Wavefront Object. You can then import that .obj file into Milkshape.

To do a couple's pose, you create the pose of the male or female rig, and then export the file as a Wavefront Object. Then you open a second rig and re-import your first pose, and fiddle until you're (reasonably) happy.

I was looking for poses for my blog to look like my sim was having "morning sickness" (because EA animations SUCK MAJORLY) and it looks like #2 would work in front of a toilet! Oh Asuka-sim, mommy's got a pose for you~
