I bring the gift of poses and a lot of rambling about them. Well, maybe not that much, because it’s a pretty small pack. This time it’s a little pack for feeling hopeless and giving comfort when needed. It’s height-adjusted, buuuuut this time I made a non-height-adjusted version as well. It’s not something I’ll always do for these kinds of packs, because it’s usually a lot of work, but for this one it was ridiculously easy.
Both of these can be used for any gender – when I call the poses ‘male’ and ‘female’, that’s only really to make it easy to distinguish between the two. The advantage is there’s very little contact, so even if your sims are two males, two females or something entirely different in between, all you need is to give them a little tweak with the alt-key so the hand doesn’t clip. They also snap together, but be mindful of slider-settings – if the sim in the male position is very bulky, the hand will clip and alt-tweaking is necessary.
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the darn things.
For the version that’s height-adjusted, you need to either:
- Use a height-slider. I use CMAR’s slider. Enzo’s height is set to 200, whereas Gina’s is set to -130. You can probably get the same result if you leave your female as-is and set your male even higher.
- Use an OMSP. Simply plop your guy on it and set it to about 13 centimetres high. In this scenario, you should probably stick to taking above-the-waist shots. Unless you want him to be able to fly, in which case – you do you, I’m not your mum.
For this version, you use the male pose and the female that’s not height-adjusted.
If your sims are not height-adjusted and you don’t want/care about the height difference, you can use the same pose for the male and the non-height-adjusted female version. The only difference between the two is that her head is tipped slightly down instead of up, and her hand lands on his shoulder instead of the upper arm. Otherwise, the pose is the same hence why there’s no view of the faces/other side – they’re literally the same pose.
This wouldn’t be a pose from me without a few derps. Though I’m not exactly convinced it’s my fault this time. Basically, I observed that for certain shirts, Gina’s elbow came out looking funky:
I had this same result for another sweater that went over the elbow, though I can’t say if it holds true for all long sleeves. I don’t think it does, as I suspect it’s to do with the mesh of the shirt. Correct me if I’m wrong and I’m just bad at poses. The shirt she’s wearing in the preview pic also had some weirdness where the elbow looked strange and boxy. Again, I think it’s to do with the mesh, but just keep in mind that some shirt may make it wonky.
About the Download
The download includes:
- The pack in both list and non-listed versions. You can probably have both in your game at the same time, but why would you?
- A document with the posecodes and descriptions.
- A document about height-adjustment which includes links to the height-slider and OMSP I use, as well as what to set them to in your game.
- Preview pictures.
The poses will look like this in your list:
With that said, all that’s left of this rambling is to give you the download link:
Thanks for Checking This Out!
I feel like I should end this by apologising for the atrocious pictures here. Not to mention the preview image. I’m using these poses in an upcoming chapter (but we’re talking chapter 15, so it’s far off) and I would have used the pics I snapped for that, but they’re kinda spoilery, so I snapped this random pic that’s not in the story (OR IS IT?!?! (it’s not)). Also sorry that this is such a tiny pack. I generally do one or two poses at a time, and it’s way easier for me to do them in little bite-sized packs. It might be a bit annoying, though – like, who wants these tiny ones anyway. I dunno, man.
Oh, and can I just say that I’m never going to stop height-adjusting my sims? Especially not Enzo. He looks like a little boy in the pic where he isn’t adjusted. Ye gads.
Anywayyyy, I thank you for reading if you made it this far. I hope this is a useful, if tiny, pack. I’ll see you for the next post.
