Sim Poser OMSPs – No OfB required!

Image Heavy, sorry!

Greetings. After having so much fucking trouble with this project, I was finally able to complete it.

I bring to you five OMSPs made to be used with Sims, instead of normal objects. Why? Well, I don’t have Open For Business, so I don’t get the Magisplay normally used for posing sims, so I was desperate and made these. I know I’m not the only person out there who doesn’t have OfB, so I figured I would share these.

These WILL NOT overwrite the original OMSPs. They were cloned and assigned their own GUIDs, so the two types can coincide with each other. Nifty, huh?

There is a slight issue with two of the OMSPs; Couch & TableDesk. For some reason, even though they have recolors, you cannot use the Design Tool on them. My own suggestion with this is to start with the Invis, toss your sim on top, and just remember: Floating Sim = OMSP underneath.

Here are some examples of what you can achieve with these OMSPs.





So, some of you  may be wondering how to use them. I’m pretty sure most of the regulars here know how to use OMSPs, since they have made such awesome clutter, but just in case there are some people who don’t know, here is a short How-To.

Step One: Buy the OMSP from Surfaces > Miscellaneous as shown above, and place it on your lot.

Step Two: Have your sim to a pose. I used Decorgal’s Custom Model Poses animbox, and used a Floor pose.

Step Three: If you haven’t already, turn on the mandatory cheats; moveobjects on, boolProp allow45DegreeAngleOfRotation true, and boolProp snapObjectsToGrid false. Now go into Buy mode and grab your sim, then drag him on top of the OMSP.

Step Four: Grab the OMSP. You’ll know you have grabbed it right when you see the sim on top of the OMSP in the catalog display, as above.

Step Five: Drag the omsp+sim over to the desired position.

Step Six: Select the Design Tool (R I believe) and then click on the OMSP.

Step Seven: Select the Invisible recolor, and accept. Now you can start taking pictures!

What can I do if I can’t find the OMSP?
I can only offer a few suggestions. As I said above, Floating Sim = OMSP underneath, usually. Always, ALWAYS remember where you place them. I also recommend not saving while doing photoshoots. This way, if you do forget where they are, you can just exit to the ‘Hood and come back, then there will be no more MIA OMSPs.

Please let me know if you have any issues or questions. I worked my ass off on these, and I hope someone can find use for them.

Sim Poser OMSP – Ground

Please redownload again. I apparently edited the values, and didn’t save on the last clone. *Facepalm*
Alternate –

This was suggested by ZombieJill, and I have to thank her for being a genius.
At the request of Moune, I have cloned the ground OMSP and made it usable with the original. So now, my clone will NOT overwrite the original. Please redownload! The original is Takeo Kitchen Counter InvisiBlock, found here.

Achieve poses you couldn’t otherwise, thanks to the stupid snap-to shit you get when you place sims too close to each other. There will  be a small gap from your sims to the ground, but if you’re a camera-angle guru, you should be alright.

I have OFB (obviously) but I think this is a fantastic idea! I have noticed when using the magisplay that the sim floats a bit higher than I’d like. I was wondering if you can queue actions while they’re on this b/c you can’t with the magisplay. Anyway, great idea and I’m editing my modeling hack post to include this.

fsdfsd thank you so much. I don’t have OfB and it makes me mad when I can’t pose them properly. ><;

Comment by Hana Maehata

Hey there. Sorry to bother you but I’m having a slight issue. When i position my sim on top of any of these OSMP, the sim floats waaay above where they should (about a foot above it would be a rough estimate). I am using decorgal’s posebox and it occurs even when my sim is wearing no custom content. I have read and re-read all of your instructions and I can’t see that i am doing anything wrong, but apologies if ive made a silly mistake somewhere.. I hope i have because it is an awesome mod.

Comment by Mel

I have a problem, I can’t select the invisble recolor if my sims is in the OMPS. (sorry for the english, I’m french). My sims don’t want “tracer le plan de l’objet” – I can’t never do the step seven.
