Hey! I'm a noob. I hope its okay for me to post here, I have kindof an ambigous question.
Since poseboxes came about, we have Decorgal, aikea-guinea, then JD, and then, suddenly, everyone seemed to be making their own poseboxes.
goodbyesun made a wonderful list on poseboxes on GoS (<3) but are they worth it?
What I'm trying to say is, do you, as a sims photographer, downloading all these (hundreds, potentially) poseboxes? Or do you stick to the tried and true methods of the creators mentioned above? Is there a place for these (often unmarked) poseboxes in photoshoots and storytelling, or are the methods of Decorgal and the like simply outdated? Is there room for both?
I'd really appreciate your personal opinion on this matter - I don't mean to cause any trouble, I'm just interested in the general opinion of people who use these (or don't) in their photoshoots/stories. Thanks. >:)
There must be something really obvious that I`m overlooking and I apologize for the painfully amateurish post. Anyway, how do you get a Sim to console another Sim by putting their hands around them as the one who is being consoled weeps? I can`t explain it better than that without stealing someone else`s pic.
I`ve seen this in countless stories yet I`m not sure I figured out what type or combo of animations/overlays they are using. So, if anyone would be so kind as to clear this up for me I`d be extremely thankful.
Hey, are we awake in here?? lol Anyway, I had a couple of questions maybe someone here knows. I asked one on GoS already in the quick question thread but maybe not everyone saw it :P
Is there a way to get a Sim to do animations and have the correct prop in their hands? Like, if I wanted a picture of a Sim playing with the Rubik's cube aka logic puzzle, how can I make them actually pull out the cube and play with it. It seems like the animation boxes and stuff only make them perform the actions but they don't have the items that go with them.
Second, while I love the lighting effects of Seasons, is there a way to change them in game? The other night I was trying to get some pictures and it start raining and suddenly my pictures all had different/wrong lighting. And then that rain lighting stuck when I went into an unoccupied lot to take more pictures, and the lighting sucked on that lot too. I poked around MTS2 but didn't see anything that could change atmospheric lighting on demand (and maybe it's not even possible).
I have a question: I was wondering if there was a way to make your sims look to the side instead of using a mask. I'm not sure if this belongs here or not, but if not then please let me know so I can remove it. Thank you.
So, what is the easiest/best way to change a Sim from one outfit to another (like everyday to swim)? The only way I have found that doesn't require them to go over to a dresser is using boolprop testingcheatsenabled, and then there's an option to change suit. Is there an easier way, or a hack that does this? I didn't see it on any of the animation hacks I have.
