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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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!*

For anyone who's ever had a babysitter that was more scared of loud, unexplained noises than YOU were ... this set is for you. Also designed for folks who always wondered what the hell was going on in that dust cloud when burglars broke in. :D

Please note! This set is in three pieces: "Chicken," which are the poses of sims being scared, "Beatdown," which are the cops n' robbers type poses, and "A Bad Night," which is a combination of all 20 poses. YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD ALL THREE. Only get the one you actually want in your game. Getting more than one will cause duplicates in your pose list and is unnecessary. I just split them up in case people really prefer to have one over the other.

Pose tags are as follows:

You wanna fight that rent-a-cop? Go ahead ...

a_splad_beatdown1 -- pointing finger
a_splad_beatdown2 -- raising hands
a_splad_beatdown3 -- drawn gun, standing
a_splad_beatdown4 -- drawn gun, on ground
a_splad_beatdown5 -- punch to the jaw
a_splad_beatdown6 -- falling
a_splad_beatdown7 -- knee to the stomach
a_splad_beatdown8 -- falling
a_splad_beatdown9 -- on the ground
a_splad_beatdown10 -- arrest
a_splad_beatdown11 -- walking away
a_splad_beatdown12 -- on the ground

Depending on how you configure these, the fight could go on for some time. Or you could draw a gun and put an end to it. Up to you!
The gun used in my photos is CloudwalkerNZ's "Hardballer." The hand positions for "beatdown 3/4" may or may not work with other custom guns.

"What was that noise? You'd better go see."

a_splad_terror1 -- sneaking along the wall
a_splad_terror2 -- hiding under the bed
a_splad_terror3 -- stumbling on the stairs
a_splad_terror4 -- hiding in a tub

c_splad_terror1 -- peeking around a corner
c_splad_terror2 -- hiding on the far side of a bed
c_splad_terror3 -- cringing on the stairs
c_splad_terror4 -- lying flat, holding head in hands

If you want to put the child's pose in the tub as shown, you will need an OMSP. If you're using Granthes' OMSP, please set it to a height of 13 cm.

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.

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.

Guns are accessories, you need to put them on your sims while changing their outfits.

Same here, but that might partly be because I remember being in similar situations. =o Seriously, these are extremely well-done and creative! <3
