Playing with poses in The Sims 4

Start posing!

The Sims 4 comes with a wide variety of animations and poses that immerse you more deeply into the gameplay and the life itself. For simmers who like to tell stories and share unique photos, it’s hard to catch the perfect moment that they were expecting from their Sims, but luckily there’s a solution for that!

Andrew over at Sims4Studio created an awesome tool called The Sims 4 Pose Player that lets you play with over 12,000 animations/poses!

To get started, you’ll need to enable Script Mods from The Sims 4’s settings. If you haven’t enabled Script Mods before, you’ll need to restart The Sims 4 after enabling them.


Then, download the Pose Player mod from Sims4Studio HERE! (download button can be found on the bottom of the first post).

Extract the .zip file in Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > Mods.


Now you’re ready to start! Load up your household (or start a new one, doesn’t really matter) and make sure the Sim you want to test poses on is standing. Click on a Sim of your choice and select ”Pose by Name’‘. Now, download the full list of all animation/pose codes for The Sims 4 from HERE!


  • Select the animation/pose code of your choice
  • Press CTRL + C
  • Pop up The Sims 4 game window
  • Press CTRL + V  + check button


To see this procedure in action, check out the video below!

You can create some beautiful screenshots using this mod. Here are some that I’ve taken:

  • I downloaded everything to do this in my sims and it wouldn’t work. What dos I do wrong? I even put everything in the mid folder.

      • One possible reason for this problem is that script mods can’t be placed within subfolders within the Mods folder. That’s what happened to me, when I took it out of a subfolder and directly into the Mods folder it worked.

    • Anyone having issues with this mod:

      Make sure under game options -> other->… that you have enabled the box that says “script mods allowed”. If you do not do this then the pose player will not work…

  • Hi! So I want to know how you can get custom poses onto the localthumbcache.package file. Because I want to use custom poses in my thumbnails but I dont know how to.

  • Is there a way to save the poses in the game so I don’t have to alt tab copy and paste them each time? Just a lot of going back and forth which takes fun out of the game for me. I’m not lazy just looking for easier ways to do things.

  • Hi! I did everything correctly, it appeared in my Sim’s choose-list. It opens fine, but the folder won’t open. Any idea why?

  • Hello! I recommend downloading other sets of custom poses, for as when you click your Sims the option of “Pose By Pack. . .” will appear, and the sets you’ve downloaded will appear. Considering the “Andrew Poseplayer” set did not work, this certainly did. I hope it works for everyone else. 🙂
