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!*

99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer,
If one of those bottles should happen to fall ...
98 bottles of beer on the wall, 98 bottles of beer,
You take one down and pass it around ...
97 bottles of beer on the wall ...

Nightlife brought us bars, dancing on countertops (and stomping on people's food), public vomiting, and waking up the next day wearing incorrect clothing. Great innovations all. However, all of that was only accessible around a professional bar. And that was just too highbrow for me! What about my trashy sims who make a cooler full of hunch punch and get sloshed in the middle of the park?

... now, my friends, your sims can be as publicly buzzed as you please (or as the police in your game allow!). Whiterider was kind enough to make lovely detailed bottles as accessories AND decoration (aka litter), so let the good times roll! Need a beach covered in half-buried bottles after a wild teen party? No problem! Need a sim violating the local "open container" ordinance for a story? You got it!

Bottles are 260 polys (high LOD) and 126 polys (medium LOD), have three channels and are CASTable all over, good for use by the teen-elder population and can be used by pregnant sims. (Though if you do the last one, shame, shame, SHAME.) You'll find them in Misc. Decor, or Dining ... Misc. Decor.

... of course, we would be remiss if we did not warn you--"Know when to say when."

Pose tags are as follows:

(These are meant to be used with the bottle accessory.)
a_splad_bender1 -- standing up straight, holding your irresponsible friend.
a_splad_bender1b -- flopping on your friend. Maybe even intentionally.
a_splad_bender2 -- Toast. Standing up. (At a bartop.)
a_splad_bender2b -- Toast. Sitting down. (At a bartop.)
a_splad_bender3 -- Lying on a couch, holding a bottle.
(Note: the height/thickness of the couch's arm/your sim's hair will greatly affect how this pose looks in your game.)
a_splad_bender3b -- Leaning on the back of a couch, holding a bottle. Looking to the right.
a_splad_bender3c -- Sitting on a chair/sofa/bench, leaning forward.
a_splad_bender4 -- Taking a small sip.
a_splad_bender4b -- Taking a big gulp.

(These are the aftermath of ALL THAT DRINKING. Shame on you. These aren't meant to be used with the bottle. Because you drank too much and someone finally CUT YOU OFF.)
a_splad_bender5 -- Stumbling while walking.
a_splad_bender5b -- Stumbling into a wall.
a_splad_bender6 -- Puking. Hands and knees.
(Note: If you have access to the fog emitter in your game, try using the "pukepuddle" effect setting!)
a_splad_bender6b -- About to puke. Stumbling against a wall.
a_splad_bender7 -- Passed out against a wall.
a_splad_bender7b -- Passed out on the floor.

You will have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position for all poses. Once you cancel the pose action, the sims will bunch together as always. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well.
