Pose Player Add-On Update

While I was checking the patch compliance, I finished a new feature for the add-on. So please go and download the Pose Player Interaction Add-on V3.

I fixed the Look At interaction so that you can select to look at objects too. Mura, thanks for letting me know that it was not working!

Here is some information about the new Facial Expressions interaction.


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 :)

  2. Thanks!

    I almost did not publish this since I thought no-one would have any use for it. LOL. The EA expressions are creepy and it takes quite a lot of time to go through them to find an useful expression that matches the pose.

  3. No use? this is FABULOUS!

    I have a question ... what do you think of a mod or a way to get a sim to walk (go here) and then do a pose or custom animation? the ability to pose is not included in Twallan's go here, but I would simply love to have this ability.

    thanks again,

    1. Glad you like it!

      It is possible to link interactions so walk+pose or walk+anim would be doable. But I think that would be a bit out of scope for this mod as that would not be a sim interaction (=interaction opening when you click a sim).

      Also, I've often noticed that sims seem to take whatever direction they want after "go to", so they might perform the pose to a wrong direction after walking.

      What would that be usable for? Machinima?

  4. If I am trying to add dance animations to my sim, can I use this and just click the sim and then add the code when the box pops up? I hate having to track down the animation player if I'm trying out a dance code and then trying to go back to the sim just to see if it even works. Thankies!!

    1. Hi Cece!

      Unfortunately no, the add-on works only for pose player. I think NRaas animator let's you select animations straight from the sim.

      But then, it may not have all animations listed, I recall having some problems with it.
