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.
*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

This is my first follower gift to everyone on Tumblr who thought I was worth following Also gave me something to look forward to after working two jobs for a week--go to first job, stare at computer, go to second job, stare at computer, go home, stare at computer. Huh. :P

So I hope you'll enjoy these poses, nothing super-fancy, just a couple enjoying their evening in, watching some TV.

Pose tags are as follows:

Funny movie:
a_splad_movienight1a -- leaning on the back of the couch, laughing.
a_splad_movienight1b -- holding stomach, laughing.

Sad movie:
a_splad_movienight2a -- crying.
a_splad_movienight2b -- kissing cheek.

Boring movie:
a_splad_movienight3a -- leaning back against couch.
a_splad_movienight3b -- sleeping in sim's lap.

Shocking movie:
a_splad_movienight4a -- grabbing sim's hand.
a_splad_movienight4b -- holding sim's hand, arm over sim's shoulder.

Steamy movie:
a_splad_movienight5a -- hand on sim's inner thigh.
a_splad_movienight5b -- hand on sim's bottom.

Known issues:
*This set was designed using the Sofa LE from the base game, and it has a relatively high back, so keep that in mind if your sims' arms appear to be missing the couch in your photos.
*All poses except pose 3a/3b will work on a loveseat.
*Poses will probably still work if one of your sims is taller than the other one, but you may need to use Misukisu's Pose Player add-on to make them look at each other if that is the case. Likewise, the poses were designed to try to avoid clipping with clothing meshes, body sliders, and larger sims, so if your sims are very small, you may get a bit of "missing." It can be minimized with a different camera angle sometimes, but ... yeah, sorry about that.

And as always, you'll need to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims. When you cancel their posing, they'll lump up together in the middle of your sofa and look ridiculous. This is okay! Direct them to walk away and all will be well.

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 love it when creators make poses with good facial expressions, and these succeeded at that :)

Hi lizziepaws,
Do any poses at all work in your game? When you say "you make your sims do the poses," are you typing the codes in manually or selecting them from the pose list?

Cool! But who said anything about "her" and "him"? The beauty of poses is that they're unisex and can be used by any combination of hims and/or hers...
