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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Important:
You will need cmomoney's Pose Player found here. I am not cmomoney, so please do not ask me questions about the pose player itself. And do not ask questions until you've read both my thread and cmo's. Thanks


Summer is just about here! Your sims need to have a pool party! So I introduce... THE POOL POSE MEGAPACK!



Instructions:
Please have the most recently updated Pose Player, there is a very handy list function with pictures of the poses. THIS PACK HAS BEEN UPDATED FOR THAT. PLEASE SEE THE DOWNLOAD TAB FOR THE LIST. You will need both files for the pose list to work correctly.

In order to replicate the scenes in the photos (such as any of the in-water poses) you will need OMSP found here.

The poses included are:
a_traelia_Pool_1
a_traelia_Pool_2
a_traelia_Pool_3
a_traelia_Pool_4
a_traelia_Pool_5
a_traelia_Pool_6
a_traelia_Pool_7
a_traelia_Pool_8
a_traelia_Pool_9
a_traelia_Pool_10
a_traelia_Pool_11
a_traelia_Pool_12
a_traelia_Pool_13
a_traelia_Pool_14
a_traelia_Pool_15


VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ:
Okay hopefully you are still reading because there are some important things I need to tell you! Pose number 7 will stretch the ear pieces of sunglasses and glasses, but it is totally unnoticeable from the front, or with hair covering the ears. In order for poses 14 & 15 to work perfectly, pose 14 MUST be on the OMSP set to 1.9m. You will need to hold the ALT key to get pose 15 in perfect placement with 14.

(Phew... okay here we go!)

Custom content on the partying models:
Some of them have the European Skin by Lemonleaf.
Model 1 is wearing this bathing suit.
Model 2 is Cleo Hwang and she is wearing this bathing suit.
Model 5 is wearing this top.
Model 6 is wearing the same top as model 5, and she is also wearing this skirt and this hair.
Model 7 is May Peters and she is wearing an exclusive bathing suit by Fawkes, this hair, these shoes and these sunglasses.
Model 8 is Tamerin and she is wearing this bathing suit, this hair and these shoes.
Model 10 is wearing this bathing suit.
Model 11 is wearing this bathing suit and this hair.
Model 14 is Amberly Hall and she is wearing this hair.

For more realistic looking feet, download the Sexy feet mod from Bloomsbase.


As always, thanks to everyone at #Create who keeps me sane!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Hey traelia. I was just thinking about how you are working on poses for fawkes' mermaid tail and i noticed that some of these might actually work for a mermaid. Like the one of the girl diving for something under the water. Anyways, you do an awesome job. keep it up!

You'll need to contact Cmomoney for help with that. The link to him is the FIRST sentence of this overview.

Amazing!!!
I have a question though.. how did you make so many sims pose together with cmomoney's pose player? because I thought you could only pose the sims in your active family .... sorry it's lame Q but I really want to know I've been trying for ages .. but still dont know how!

Oh! I actually used AwesomeMod to make it possible to have more than 8 sims in the active family. I had two families, one with 8 sims and one with 7 sims, and then had them merged in Edit Town, with the AwesomeMod setting to have more than 8 in the family. So technically they are ALL active sims
I haven't tested this, but I suppose you could turn free will off, and then pose sims and leave the family, and I'm guessing they would stay posed.

Hi Traelia. I really love your poses, you seem really dedicated to them and they are absolutly breathtaking. But I am having the same problem that cutedemi337 . I make the sims pose via the new list feature, but they will not pose! They just stand there with very goofy grins plastered on their faces.

I have this problem with every single one of your poses. I have made some poses for myself and downloaded some other poses, and they all work fine. It is just the ones that you made. I have the lastest Pose Player. I also knoticed that many other people seemed to have this problem and it doesn't seem to be a fault in the actual pose player. I was just wondering if you could have a look into it because I love your poses so much and they would be great for story telling!

Thank you!

Do you have both the list file and the actual pack downloaded?
BOTH files are required for the poses to work with the list.
When a sim just stands there and smiles, that means the actual pose files are missing.
I can assure you that I can't fix whatever is going wrong if you have followed all the instructions and it still doesn't work. The Sims 3 is weird in the way that some people get glitches that others don't.
