How to Add Family Poses in Sims 4? (Guide)

Poses work like any other type of CC (custom content) in the game. That means that they can be downloaded from the internet, extracted, and pasted into your Mods folder. However, the individual poses can’t work alone.

If you want your Sims to be able to pose, you’re going to need Andrew’s Pose Player mod. This is a simple tool that adds the interaction “posing” inside the game, which shows up whenever you click on a Sim. Visit this link to learn more and download the Pose Player mod.

And lastly, you’ll want to use Andrew’s Teleport Any Sim mod as well. As the title suggests, this mod lets you instantly move any Sim to any place of the house. It can be very difficult to gather all members of your family to do some poses. So this mod makes the job ten times easier, and we highly recommend using it. You can download it here.
