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!


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

Ah, corporate life. Is there anything more soul-sucking than working in an office in a tiny, impersonal cubicle that you're not allowed to personalize? How about the sad attempts at happiness such as the disgusting layer cake that's trotted out on the boss's (and ONLY the boss's) birthday, or the post-holiday gift exchange? Miserable prospects all, but there's always something worse--that day the boss tells you to come into the office "and shut the door." Yup. You're being fired. Or released, or let go, or downsized, or deployed, or whatever they call it nowadays. Fact is, you don't work there anymore.

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_pinkslip1 -- boss pose, arms folded. Scowling.
(Note: This pose only really works with ladies and relatively slim men. Bigger sims will get hand clipping. I tried for a while but couldn't see a way to resolve that issue. Really sorry. Pose is also unusable with longer skirts--the stance makes the mesh warp.)
a_splad_pinkslip2 -- employee pose, clutching stomach and holding head with hand.
a_splad_pinkslip3 -- employee pose, feeling awkward--the classic "bless yo' lil' heart" face.
a_splad_pinkslip4 -- boss pose, shrugging. Awkward face.
a_splad_pinkslip5 -- employee pose, slapping head with hand.
a_splad_pinkslip6 -- employee pose, squatting. Scowling.
a_splad_pinkslip7 -- employee pose, sitting on the ground. Scowling.
a_splad_pinkslip8 -- employee pose, sitting on the ground. Scowling.

Poses 6-8, as you can probably guess, also don't work well with skirts. Although the sim is holding Rosesims's cigarette, the poses look fine without it. But really, when you've been let go after giving your heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears to THE MAN ... maybe you deserve a smoke?

You may have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position. If you using multiple sims in one shot, once you cancel, the sims may lump up together. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well ... until they go postal!

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.

As always, your poses are just so very well done, perfectly detailed in the expressions and hand positions. I'm going to get a lot of use out of these.
