Hi guys -waves-

Since the update of the poseplayer for pets and the new blender rigs, I've tried my hand at creating some horse and 1 dog pose I think I've done pretty well but I can't seem to be able to save them in the correct format. I have the file (s3py animation tools or something liek that) but can't enable it in Blender I've tried ticking the box but it wont tick and it works with the other things just not the file I need XD Any help would be amazing becuase I REALLY want to see my poses in game. If I get it working I'll post pics on this thread or if anyone wants to turn them into poses before I get them working on my laptop to test them, then I could send the blender files over ^^

Poses so far, for those who want to know:

Horse:
Extended trot
Two different galloping poses
A bow
Canter left and on the bit (I think. Can't quite remember off the top of my head)
Lying down
Piaffe
Some random rear pose thing (My first attept posing anf with blender so its a bit of a fail XD)
And some other rear thing. Looks like a horse going over a jump akwardly XD

Dog:
Stalking, hunting, walking thing. Don't really know how to explain it.

So yeah is someone could help it would be amazing and I can post pics from blender if people want to see the poses ^^

Awesome! I've been wishing for some other gates that the horses can use. I don't think I can help...I've never created anything like that before.

Can't wait to see some pics.

Thanks so wanting to see them guys <3 Here are some pics even though I STILL haven't got them ingame (Lol I fail XD) I think I'm just going to re-download sp3 and stuff and see if that works. Margo on Equus-sims has posted a tutorial so I'll follow that and see where it leads XD

Linked due to the pics being huge XD

If I might ask, where did you get the posing rigs for the horses? And is there a tutorial for creating poses using blender? I've only found ones for using Milkshape. The pictures of blender look like it's a little more user-friendly.

EDIT... I'm assuming you have the cmomoney's PosePlayer installed, right? And have you made the poses compatible with the pose list capability?

And yes I do have the pose player installed. The problem is that I haven't been able to install or enable the addon in Blender that lets you export it in sims 3 package. I'll have to double check the tutorials but I'm sure I'm doing everything right. I'm in teh process of re-downloading sp3e and the addon but I've been busy with school and stuff.

As for were I got the horse rig, I'll find the links for you And there are many tutorials for creating poses in Blender. I could link you to some sim ones but the horses are far easier I think Blender is really easy to use and I pretty much just figured it out by my self. Very user friendly I think.

OMG! First, let me thank you for showing the pictures of the poses in blender because it inspired me to look into creating poses again. I Googled for tutorials on using blender to create them and found a couple of good tutorials. Blender is _SO_ much easier to work with!

Second... I misread what you were having issues with. Sorry about that. It's the plugin to Blender you can't get installed? I don't know enough about the tool to be able to help troubleshoot the issue. Luckily it installed for me. I do hope you are able to figure it out!

Your welcome I have no experince with MilkShape but I've heard that it's quite hard to work with XD

Still having issues with the addon though -.- I think I may have installed the wrong one. Can anyone give me a link so I can make sure I am actually using the right one?

EDIT: And I guess you guys can leave suggestions for poses too if you'd like ^^ Hopefully I can get teh files working so I can actually do proper requests. If you are able to package the file and get them in game then I can by all means send them over It's such a pain not being able to get them in in my own game yet >.<
