Brand new Quick Pose, Facial Expressions and Look At interactions. Also, Move/Rotate/Tilt interactions for both sims and objects.
This is an add-on to original Pose Player by CmoMoney and the interactions become available after you have placed a Pose Player somewhere in your neighborhood.
Requires CmoMoney's Pose Player version 5-1-12!
IF YOU DON'T HAVE POSE PLAYER, THE SIMS 3 GAME WILL CRASH AT START UP UNTIL YOU REMOVE THIS MOD
Since I started creating I've been struggling with a tiny problem. The sims that I use as my models are the sims that I play with. I don't want to move them to same household, nor do I want to build a photo studio to all homes. So, I made this mod. Now only my photographer sim lives in the photo studio and he asks other sims to visit and pose for him.
New Sim Interactions (when Pose Player exists in neighborhood):
- Photo Shooting....
- Photo Shooting.... Select Pose...
- Photo Shooting.... Pose by Name...
- Photo Shooting.... Random Quick Poses
New Interactions for Posing Sims:
- Move... (several interactions for moving your sim/object)
- Tilt And Turn... (several interactions for moving turning and tilting your sim/object)
- Move Objects... (select an object that you want to move from a dialog)
- Restore Locations of All Moved Objects
- Photo Shooting.... Stop Posing
- Photo Shooting.... Release All Posing Sims
- Photo Shooting.... Look At.... (select a sim you want this sim to look at from a dialog)
- Photo Shooting.... Add Current Pose to My List
- Photo Shooting.... Remove Current Pose from My List
- Photo Shooting.... Select Pose from My List (available only when My List contains poses)
- Photo Shooting.... Quick Poses from My List (available only when My List contains poses)
- Photo Shooting.... Change Facial Expression *NEW in V3*
Quick Poses lets you photograph your sims like the pros do. The sims stay in the same position for 2 sim minutes before they move to the next pose. Random Quick Poses selects random poses from the full pose list, while Quick Poses from My List shows all the poses in My List in the same order they are in the list.
I also made all posing interactions cancel the previous posing actions, so you only need to "Stop Posing" when you are done.
How often do you find the perfect poses, but they don't fit your story because the sims are looking at the wrong place? Well, now you can ask sims to look at another sim that is in the same room. This was possible before too, but the process was quite tedious. How sims react to Look At interaction varies pose by pose. Some poses don't let the sim move at all, while some poses let their turn their heads to completely different direction. Since V3, you can choose any object in the room as the target for Look At.
Move, Turn and Tilt Objects and Sims (No OMSPs Needed)
When sims are posing, interactions to move them around appear. I added plenty of fixed options, but you can also give your own turn angles, tilt vectors and decide how much sims/object will move and which direction.
The tilting options and results are not always logical, but they are learnable.
If you want to move objects, you must first select "Move Objects..." from posing sim's interactions, and then select the object you want to move from the dialog that opens. After that you can just click that object and move interactions appear. The object selection dialog shows all items that are in the room, including some things you don't want to move...
Be careful while moving things - you can move them underground or out of your reach. For recovering from situations like those I added interactions "Restore Locations of All Moved Objects" and "Release All Posing Sims". It is best that you learn to use these controls moving objects first, as the "Restore Locations of All Moved Objects" will return them to their original places. Normally the released sims can just walk away even though they would be underground, but I've had few cases where I had to reset them using resetsim cheat.
These options are available also when game is paused, so you don't need to worry about your other pose victims to run away.
Change Facial Expression
You can now change the facial expression of a posing sim. Opens a new dialog where you can choose one of the EA facial expressions. I admit, most of them look funny. There is a minor bug too - sometimes the posing sims stop posing instead of changing the expression. Similar to Look At, resets the pose so you cannot use Look At and Facial Expressions at the same time. Like with Look At, selecting same expression/target several times may get you different results :)
About The Crash Warning
Let me explain the hassle about the game crashing. This mod is a direct extension to Pose Player and I'm using its script classes directly from my script. If the game cannot load the script classes it will crash at very early phase, before you even see the first load screen. The error message in the log will say "DasmX86Dll.dll not found". As the error message is so mystic, I wanted to make sure everyone downloading this mod knows that this mod may cause that error. It helps in debugging, if that happens.
But that will ONLY happen if you remove the Pose Player and forget to remove my mod too. The crash will not harm your game in any way and the game will start working again as soon as you remove my mod. I have named my package so that you should remember to remove it. If you still worry, you can merge this mod's package with Pose Player using package merging tutorial at Club Crimsyn.
CmoMoney for the Pose Player and permission to create this mod - Hugs and kisses to Cmo!
