Inconvenient: Several people take pictures of their sims with the tools (Andrew pose player) known to the community. However, a group of players are concerned about not knowing how to take photos of mermaids that have a new tail (new mesh) with a new shape. Some poses deform the new tails, the reason is explained in my previous article INFLUENCE OF SOME POSES ON CUSTOM MERMAID TAILS.

Proposal: This illustrative article is to assist this stakeholder in the gaming community where possible. I hope it helps you.

Preamble: You can capture images of your mermaids, to do so requires having your game.

·         Andrew pose player (to insert the pose in the avatar) 

·         Teleport Sims (teleport or locate a sims in an area)

·         Poses: If you want to photograph mermaids (with new tails / new mesh) I propose to use human poses, you must ensure that the legs of the sims are close or joined, thus preventing the tail from deforming.

Example: Consider the poses D E L P H I N E III - Pose Pack by Beto. You can find them here. 

1. Decorate the ambient to your liking and add the sculpture "sims teleport" in the desired location.


2. Transform your sims into mermaid, take her to swim, once she shows her tail she can pause the game to facilitate the process.

3. Teleport your mermaid: click on the sculpture and choose the option teleport to sims here, a window will appear, there choose your mermaid. Then the mermaid will be positioned right where the sculpture was.

4. Select the poses of your preference: click on your mermaid and choose the “Pose by pack” option, a window opens with various poses, choose the ones you like, these will accumulate as actions, when finished you can close the window and remove the pause from the game. The mermaid will perform the poses, she will maintain her mermaid outfit. I prefer not to record after taking the pictures.

5. Take screenshots. As you already know, you can take your pictures, using the letter C on the keyboard. When you are finished be sure to stop the poses.

6. In my next article. Suggestion to take pictures of the mermaids in the CAS.

Influence of some poses on custom mermaid tails

A cordial greeting. It seems appropriate to share an observation, I do it with respect. I have analyzed some poses for the sirens of sims 4, which are published on the internet. These poses were generated from a base: the mermaid dummy  (made by EA games).

   The creators of the poses modify the shape of the tail, it looks great, but this produces an important limit.

  Pose, shape or posture will be compatible only with the siren tails of EA games, or compatible with the tails (slightly modified) from this base, but WILL NOT APPLY TO NEW TAILS OF SIRENA.

   Because by modifying the tail from this base, the bones of the sims are being automatically ruined, the feet and legs of the avatar are deformed on a large scale. These destroyed bones will be revealed, deforming the new varieties of tails that can be created.

In effect, these poses will not be compatible with other siren tails.

   Therefore I suggest creating the poses using (as a base) a human body of the sims and not the body of the siren, in the way that you can take care not to alter large-scale or destroy the bones of the avatar. So,  poses WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH ANY FORM OF TAIL for sirens. Would be great.

Thank you very much for your attention and sorry for the inconvenience, and for some possible errors in the narration, I don’t speak English.
