Hi guys!

I’m almost back from my break, but before the story continues, I thought I’d give you the first of two posedumps I’m planning. I’ve been making poses since 2014 (according to my pose folder, anyway), and because I’m both lazy AND a perfectionist, there’s a fair few poses I never released. Sometimes it was perfectionism getting in the way, but mostly just laziness. Since posedumps are pretty awesome, I figured – why not do it this way! Some of them are from 2014, which means they are wonky as HECK. It even includes what I think must be one of my first attempts at a couple’s pose – CRINGE 😀 Let’s have a look…

This is a dump consisting of 28 different poses, 25 for adults and 3 for kids. They are NOT list compatible, meaning you’ll have to use the poseplayer’s ‘Pose by name…’ function. The file contains:

  • The poses as a .package file
  • The animation files (.clip files)
  • Preview images with codes
  • A .txt file with codes and descriptions
  • Hugs! Warm, warm hugs 🙂

Let’s have a look at them all before I change my mind…

Please excuse the middle one – that’s the one I said was probably the first couple’s one I made. It’s bad, but I won’t shy away from my bleak past. Also, excuse the TERRIBLE name for the one on the far right. It was supposed to be used for someone who was pretending to be with the police (don’t ask), and thus the terrible name. I don’t know how you can be this cringe at 24, but there you go… I haven’t used these in any stories, though I still think the sleeping one can be massively useful!

These two were originally made for The Hartfields, my failed legacy. There’s not much variation in these apart from her mouth being slightly closed in the second. I have no damn clue why I needed one with her mouth closed a bit more, but uh… it’s there! You can see an example of it in use here:

I once again delved into the darkness of my old story folder. It hurts.

Okay, before we move on, I’ll say something that’ll hold true for most of the poses to come: Man, these are really bad, look at how bad I was. There, I said it, and we can move on with pure facts. These were, yet again, made for The Hartfields. I realised after that I made poses that were something like these but less shit… I have no clue where they are, though, but if I find them I’ll include them in the next dump. Here they are in use:

If I’m being generous, this is at least one place where past me used tilting right. If I am to be a little negative: WHY DID YOU INCLUDE TIME TRAVEL IN YOUR DAFT STORY PAST ME?!

For a pair of poses that was made waaaay back, for the Ithaca Legacy, the ones on the left aren’t too shabby, though they are a bit weird. They snap together, but they way they’re turned doesn’t make sense compared to the bed. There’s no excuse for the knees in the middle one, though, since it’s more recent. For shame. The one on the right is mostly a set of model poses, they were meant for Genevieve and Nadir and I used them on the blog for banners and such. The male stretches so he’s a little taller than the female. Here they are in action:

Past me just lost ALL of the points for using tilting correctly.

These next ones are from The Talented. The one with the two of them is odd. She snaps right into place on the bed, but he needs some tweaking with the alt-key. Here they are in action:

Finally some that leave me cringing a little bit less. The first set are from MVS gen 1 (see chapter here for previews). The other two should have been for Champion of Moonlight, but a re-write meant that I didn’t need them anyway. All three of these stretch the male sim to be taller than the female (and they do it badly – yikes).

These ones require the book from this set for the female to hold – or some other open book that can be placed in her hand. I was lazy when doing these previews and I didn’t have them in my game, so that’s how you get hover hands. Sorry – my laziness will be my downfall. (That or my old story folder. Not quite sure). You may need to use an OMSP to raise the book up – I honestly can’t remember, nor can I remember which book from the set I used. I used them in this chapter of CoM.

And finally – three poses for your adventurous kids. These were, of course, made for darling Marta for MVS gen 1. You can see two of them in use here. The third one I never ended up using. For the climbing one, I made a drain pipe from one of the fireplaces. It’s a basegame one with a long chimney. If you use moveobjects on to get the pipe off, it’ll fit with the pose, though you’ll likely need to move the kid/chimney around to make them fit – they don’t snap together.

Now, I hear you ask. Can I…

  • Edit these?
    • Yes! I included the animation files for that very purpose. Feel free to change them to suit your needs if you know how to do that.
  • Make them list-compatible?
    • Yes! If it makes your life easier, knock yourself out, you beautiful person, you.
  • Upload my edits/list versions?
    • Yes! BUT! I’d like for you to ask first. I don’t mind you uploading some where you’ve changed facial expression, faces, corrected bad stuff, or used them as a base for your own poses, but I’d like for you to ask first. It’s the polite thing to do. So is giving me credit, which I’d also like… even though some are so bad I probably shouldn’t admit to having made them.

With that out of the way, pleeeeeeeeeease, tell me if there are ANY issues with these. With so many poses, it’s easy to make mistakes, and I’ve been writing the codes two or three times during this, so I’m a little tired. The downloads are here:

That’s it for now, folks. I’m really excited to be back on Saturday, so until then, I hope you have a grand old time and I’ll see you around.

I love pose dumps so much. Thank you for uploading these, Louise! ♥ BTW, don’t worry about the tilting, I didn’t even know how to do that until recently, lol.

    You’re welcome, Jowita! 😀 There will be more later and they’re not as old (and bad)!
    Ha, ha, I abused tilting so badly that I’m pretty sure those keys on my keyboard could have sued me. I use it much less now and I think a lot of my older pictures are cringe because of excessive tilting 😛
