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!*

Need some lovin'? Good, it's lazy snuggle time! A small set of three couple's poses.

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_huggable1 -- male pose, sitting on the counter
a_splad_huggable2 -- female pose, standing in front of the counter
a_splad_huggable3 -- male pose, sitting on the couch
a_splad_huggable4 -- female pose, lying down on the couch
a_splad_huggable5 -- male pose, lying on the bed
a_splad_huggable6 -- female pose, lying on the bed

You will have use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position. Once you cancel, the sim will stand in the middle of the counter, couch, or bed as though it were an object. This is okay! Just direct the sim to walk away and all will be well.

If you use an OMSP, Poses 1 and 2 may work on other surfaces, like a fence or a dresser, though Sim 1's hands will likely be ... higher. Please also note the types of shirts that poses 1 and 2 work well with. Shirts with bigger meshes, like the layered "Generations" tops, will likely experience mild clipping.



Renee's clothes are all from Late Night. Renee's hair is from the High End Loft Stuff Pack. Matthew's shirt is from Generations. Matthew's jeans are from Late Night.

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.

"Male" and "female" labels are just to let you know who's modelling the poses. Old habit. LOL. You can totally use the poses with a same-sex couple.

If you are using the latest edition of the Pose Player, the poses are already auto-entered under the "Select Pose from List" option. You don't have to remember the names.

There isn't a tutorial per se. If you can create a pose, you can also create a couple's pose.

1) After you finish animating your model, setting the keyframe, exporting as a .smd, etc., re-animate the model and export it as a wavefront obj. file.

2) Open a new model, import their .smd file.

3) Import your wavefront obj. file of your first model and build your second pose around them. Rinse, wash, repeat until you're happy with the way they both look together.

That's it. Easy, huh?

Default Just a Lot of Thanks
Spladoum!!! Seriously love this set of poses, very sweet, very caring, things sims should be doing but oddly don't. . .these also work really well as lead-ups to pillow talk. So, THANKS for the great work!

When this has happened to me in the past, it was because I moved or rotated the sim using the "root" joint. Try using "root_Bind." I've never a problem with that one.

You may want to take any further technical questions to the main pose creation thread. I have upcoming exams, so I'm not going to be able to check in much this week.
