Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This object will allow you to stop the time in the sim world and/or freeze a sim individually in a middle of an animation sequence at the point of particular interest.

While this has little to no use for general gameplay, this is a nice tool for those who do stories, or at least it is for me. I'm tired of having to put in the "sethour" cheat since time keeps going on while I'm trying to get my sims to have the right pose. I've taken countless pics with the wrong lighting (i.e certain scenes that are supposed to be taken in daytime ended up in night time because I stupidly didn't realize that it was dark already), and I'm pretty much fed up with it.

Also, I often face difficulties configuring the perfect timing when I want to take a picture of two or more sims together with certain poses using some animation hacks. I just can't get them all in the right pose at the same time because they all keep moving around.



Note that this is not the same with the freeze time spell. That one freezes the time and the whole lot, including all the sims except the witch, while with this object you can choose each options independently.

It's in Misc/Misc and it costs 1 simoleon. Works for toddlers to elders, dogs and cats ("boolprop controlpets on" required).

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thanks For This Download it 100% works and safe and i Love it i think its funny when the school bus comes when u freeze The time ,then it leaves. Its amazing when u can freeze them anytime you want e.g sample - Do Yoga or if your Todlers Drop sometimes they have them on there Face and Tall and put them down u can freeze it and it looks like that picked them up and that btw this is not in the downlad its before i downloaded it. i found it funny when it Glishes PMSL. thanks agian Treeag . P.s is it ok to give the the file to a friend and give it to them at there house? by email or just go to there house and go round and give to them.

This will be useful even for "normal players" like me (I mean: not only story-tellers)!
For example on wedding parties I want to make some nice fotos that my sims will hang on their wall later on. But it's so darn complicated to get them right!! Takes up the whole party! And everyone is dropping in their motives etc... it's horrible!
Thank you so much for your clock, I can finally enjoy weddings (and birthdays and holiday trips...) again!

Definitely need this for sims 3, when my sims get up they take forever to get ready for work and school or time passes too quickly. I used to freeze time in sims 2 until they had done everything they needed to and then would unfreeze time.

Thank you, thank you, this is perfect for making my video since the focus shifts from background character to foreground\

My best idea ever: combine my love for Egypt with my love of sims

awesome if possible could you make one where you could put them in hilarious poses and a skintone changer because then i could turn repomen, social workers and bullying police men into frozen frame then put them in a hilarious pose and put them like statues in my back garden XD

This is hella fun! It's even funner when you use it on the Specter lot and freeze Olive and Ophelia. The ghosts completely ignore them!
