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're welcome. But this thing requires Apartment Life. I have that ticked since the beginning but I have no idea why it wouldn't stick.

The way it looks now, it seems that it doesn't even require the base game I don't know what's wrong.

Could it be possible for this to be created without AL?
#12 Old 15th Oct 2008 at 4:35 AM
That would be nice, but I doubt it, as it uses features that didn`t exist before Apartment Life.

*bows* Thank you, thank you, thank you!! No more trying to time poses around the "demo play dead" while the sim's still on the floor!

To name but one of the many uses this'll have

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

This does have ONE use in general gameplay which Ive been searching for snce last night! Your vampires can now... Have ETERNAL DARKNESS! Yata! Sure, you wont get to go to work, get the newspaper, and yada yada yada. But we can now raise our various skills in one night, without the pain of having to hide in the coffin at dusk! Thank you!

Oh jeez, I am definitely going to need to get AL now! Such an ingenious idea, and extremely helpful for making stories and taking photoshoots.

So its like clicking on "pause" ? Whats the difference?
#20 Old 16th Oct 2008 at 2:13 AM
You don`t have to pause everything at once. You can pause just some of the sims, whilst positioning others. Then pause them, and unpause others, to get them positioned Just So. Great for set-up snapshots. You can also stop the clock without pausing the game, if I understand correctly.
