Every once in a while I like to stop and make a post to say hey, how you doing? What’s new? And answer some questions I get from my great followers and people I meet on FB. One particular question that is popping up more and more frequently is:
“When are you moving your posing over to Sims 4?”
I just want to say, I luv you guys and gals for wanting to see my poses in the newest version of Sims! I view the question as a compliment and I thank you for asking. I thought maybe it was time to address it more fully, so you can understand what I am thinking. See what’s bouncing around in my brain……
First off, for some reason I can’t have both versions of Blender installed on my computer at the same time. It literally flips out! I have created two profiles on my computer and I will install Sims 4 studio in the other profile soon to give that a try.
Secondly I want to show you something.
To start – I open a web page and type in Sims 3 poses, enter
I chose images, just to get you to see:
What I get is pages upon pages of poses that fit into three categories:
1. catalogue/sexy poses (how many ways can a sim stand or sit?)
2. couple poses (ugggg, so many of those)
3. some I call portrait poses- but I include group friends, wedding and
holding the baby, touching the pregnant belly in that category
I’ve only shown you the top five rows of what the search found but believe me, you see basically the same thing as you scroll and scroll and scroll down.
NOW! I know this isn’t exactly an accurate way to see what poses are out there to get. It’s close, but not 100%. Especially since in those five rows you only see a couple of mine and they fall in those top three categories too. BUT, considering the amount of emails I get saying “I can’t find this ____________ and I need it for my story!” Well, that tells me that there are still many themes that need to be filled for Sims 3.
I’ve even had someone be so blunt as to tell me I was wasting my valuable time! LOL, sorry, I don’t believe I am. I started posing for myself, to provide pictures for my own Stories By Bee. Then I continued because posing was a great outlet for relieving the mounds of stress I was under every day. Now, I do them for you as there are still a ton of you playing and writing sims 3 stories!
So here is what I am going to do for you:
Feel free to advertise your Sims 3 story in the comments below so other people can see your site. If I see you are using my poses, I will add you to a list!
I’m tentatively opening up requests to start in 2020. Now I say tentative because:
a) I will have more time, since my mother passed November 5th of this year and
b) I had a heart attack on October 24th and I am still waiting on the results of all my heart tests. I may need minor surgery to fix the damage to my heart. I find out more Dec 9th. Regardless, no request can come with a super quick turn around date. Most of you know and have commented on I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I make mistakes – trust me I know and see them, but I certainly don’t want to put out junk. However, I also have 4 kids and a hubby to care for. Oh and three pets too.
All I want is to make sure that before I do move over to Sims 4 permanently, that you have everything you need to carry on for all your great stories in Sims 3. I have so much more I want to put out for you, but my head is bigger than my time. I start a pose set promising myself it will be small, but then I get all these new ideas – I see the situation from too many angles (we can blame my mom for that) and next thing I know, I’ve spent another 2 weeks on just one set. I want you to know, I’m working on this flaw!
So, it’s the end of the year and usually I take the time to tell you what is coming up for poses!
Christmas morning pose set (out next week)
Brothers and Sisters
Saying Goodbye To Mom
Skype poses (I swear I will get them finally done!)
Bad News I’m Pregnant – Teens telling parents (almost done)
Shotgun wedding for teens? (Not sure I will do this)
Anne of Green Gables
Baby Portraits (I’ve had forever!)
Paparazzi poses (coming up in the next chapter of my story whenever I get there!)
I have many more started, nearly finished I have not listed here. So many ideas, I have!
Lastly, I am in desperate need of a CC creator to make me a mug that is a CAS accessory. So many times I have needed that for a pose set idea that ended up in the bin! It can’t be taken from someone else’s creation, like a mug object by so and so, turned into a CAS accessory and it can not be a DL that is a mediafire link or something of the like. Is there any super creative, talented person out there that can do that for me? I just need a mug, doesn’t need to be fancy, handle would be appreciated. If this works out, I may need more items from whoever can help me.
In the meantime I will take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy month of December as we wind our way down to Christmas day! Don’t forget to comment below!
