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.
edit, 6/29/2012: I just realized that the .package file of the wheelchair and two pillows was not working. Very, very sorry about that. If you downloaded that file between Wednesday and today (6/29), please re-download the file. I've game-tested the new .package and confirmed that it works correctly now.



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!*

So I'd been thinking for the longest that we reeeeeeeeally needed some poses that involved wheelchair-bound sims. After about five false starts and crying on a bunch of people's shoulders (and I'm sure they're thrilled that I finally got it together), I have a few poses to present to you!

The wheelchair featured in these shots was made by BuffSumm at TSR. Per her express wish, I've included it with the pose upload, so you don't have to look for it anywhere else. (Also this means that you can use it for your own pose sets if you wish.) Chair is §500 and under "living chairs," pillows are §10 each and under "Decor/Plants." (I thought they showed up in "Decor/Misc. too, but they don't.) You will need to use "moveobjects on" to place the pillows, but I bet you knew that already.

Wheelchair is 1942 vertices/1892 faces.
Back pillow is 178 vertices/272 faces.
Seat pillow is 157 vertices/236 faces.


Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_wheelchair1 -- pushing wheels with hands
a_splad_wheelchair2 -- asleep
a_splad_wheelchair3 -- conversation--speaking to sim behind chair
a_splad_wheelchair4 -- conversation--speaking to sim to the right of chair
a_splad_wheelchair4-2 -- conversation--walking on the right of chair
a_splad_wheelchair5 -- conversation--speaking to a sim straight ahead
a_splad_wheelchair6 -- smooch (seated sim)--kissing a sim on the cheek
a_splad_wheelchair6-2 -- smooch (standing sim)--being kissed
a_splad_wheelchair7 -- smooch (seated sim)--being kissed
a_splad_wheelchair7-2 -- smooch (standing sim) kissing a sim on the cheek
a_splad_wheelchair8 -- being pushed
a_splad_wheelchair8-2 -- pushing chair from behind
a_splad_wheelchair9 -- greeting child
c_splad_wheelchair9 -- running to sim
a_splad_wheelchair10 -- hug
c_splad_wheelchair10 -- being hugged

You will have use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position. Once you cancel, the sims will stand in the middle of the object, or group up together. This is okay! Just direct the sims to walk away and all will be well. As the wheelchair was cloned from a living chair, you may find that other sims occasionally want to "sit" on it, even when your sim is already in place, so you may have to tell them to shove off repeatedly, especially if you're on a public lot. Sorry about that (but it makes for some really funny photos!).

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.

I think you should do a pose with an old woman with a cat on her lap. This would
be perfect for a image of her looking out her window. lol. Too weird? Maybe.

Do you take requests? Cuz I REEEAALLLYY need a flying pose pack, and you're one of the best pose makers I know. If you can't fulfill my request, then I understand. BTW, I love the poses! The pair with the kid running towards the grandma is sooooo sweet.

I've always been disappointed that EA didn't figure out a way to include Sims in wheelchairs, so these fill a much-needed role. They're very natural looking poses and the chair looks good too. Thank you.

Put a sleeping cat on an OMSP, place on sim's lap, voila!

I would need to have more specifics about what you mean by "flying," that could mean a number of things. For example, there's "superhero flying" and "magical being flying" (body stances are completely different), and then there's the facial expressions to worry about--are they flying because it's their job? Are they flying because it's cool and they love doing it? Are they flying because their ability just manifested and suddenly they're 15 feet in the air without realizing it? All of these details make a big difference in the final product.

If you're looking for something specific, feel free to PM me with details.

I've been playing with these sims of all kinds, vamps, nymphs, etc. I was looking for flying poses for my vamps, like what you said about magical being flying. The facial expressions would be like watching what's below them, like they own the night. But really, anything's fine with me. Thank you for considering, by the way.

Oh, my :D
This is pure awesome :D
Now I can get back to my one neighborhood because in the storyline it's based off of, one of the male characters is in a wheelchair (he was a soldier in the battle against Ravenwaves and ended up crippled. >.> ...so it's a Lady Lovelylocks neighborhood... I'm an 80s child :P)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. :D

I am disabled, I have Cerebral Palsy, I am kinda gutted that EA has to make "Eutopia" kinda world where the only difference to a sim is supernatural, disabled people aren't supernatural although flying disabled would b cool. They have catered for blacks, indian and asian sims, babies to old, fat and thin but not disabled or tall/small. Don't we have the right to be simmed?? lol

OMG Totally needing these for the current generation of my DitFT Legacy. Luckily I just started the gen, and will be needing these poses for the next 15 posts!!! YOU ARE AWESOME!!! Also, do these work for the other wheelchairs out there, or just this one? Hope so. If not, Jamie gets a new wheelchair. XD

My understanding about the new Supernatural EP is that the whole vampire system is going to "tweaked" in some sort of way, so it is entirely possible that you'll get exactly what you want when that EP/patch comes out. If it just doesn't suit, though, I'll be happy to re-visit the idea.

If you just downloaded the .package set, please go back and re-download it. I found an error with the file and had to replace it.

To answer your question, I didn't know there were other wheelchairs out there, so you'll probably get clipping issues with the footrests and the sim most likely won't be sitting correctly in a different chair. Sorry.

Oh yeeeaah!!! I already have this wheelchair, but will re-download for the nice pillows. I was try to think of all kinds of ways to pose and angle my sim to look like they were pushing the wheelchair and now I can give my brain a rest. (And so can you now!) Thanks for making these. They look perfect!

That is just so lovely! but I wonder ...

Could you do some poses for other ages? I mean, not only old people use wheel chair, if young one have some accident and broke a leg (or even worse ) they need to use one of these for a while (or even forever ).

So it could be so useful for make storys :D

If what you're asking for is children's poses, that would require an entirely different wheelchair, scaled down so kids could reach the wheels, and footrests raised so that their legs didn't go numb. Unfortunately, object-making is completely beyond me, so someone else will have to make a child's wheelchair!

If you're asking about teenagers, the blond girl in the upper-left of the photo collage is a teen. There are clipping issues because teens are shorter than adults, but nothing an OMSP couldn't solve.
