Sims 4 Stand Still in CAS (Shimrod101 & Shooksims)
The Occults Only file stops only the occult animations from playing (vampires growling, mermaids giggling, spellcasters casting, werewolves howling), so sims will move around and react normally still. All I do is tell the game to not play the occult animations at all, so there are no animation replacements either. Compatible with any combination of packs.
This is an override mod that stops your sims from playing the idle animations while you create or edit them in CAS. No more looking side to side, heel rolls, weight shifts, etc. for all genders, ages, and occults! The mod also stops the reactions when you change into a Styled Look, or make the sim Fit or Fat.
Your sims will still animate when randomizing, choosing walk styles, choosing Traits & Aspirations, switching ages, and when adjusting the voice slider. The voice slider and randomizer use the same settings, so if you want the sim to move with the voice slider it has to stay this way. The eyes will also shift around and blink, just like in Edit Detail Mode since that animation is being used as the default for all other animations now (except mermaids who use their own animation). Two things to keep in mind that I can’t fix (yet) are that the sims lean back a little due to the way the new animation clip works, and that male elders shift their feet when switching styled looks. The latter seems to be due to the way elders normally stand in CAS, but I’m not 100% sure. A future update I am thinking of doing is going for a more natural default animation, but I’ll have to look into it at a later date, along with pets. Compatible with any combination of packs.
Someone requested this version from Shooksims be updated, so here it is! This stops all idle animations for all groups just like Shimrod’s version, but uses a custom pose and allows sims to react when choosing Styled Looks and adjusting to Fit or Fat. Your sims will not blink like Shimrod’s either, but they do still animate when randomizing, choosing walk styles, choosing Traits & Aspirations, switching ages, and when adjusting the voice slider. I may add blocks to the Styled Looks and Fit/Fat animations later if there is enough interest in it. It is compatible with any combination of packs.
2021 May 28th – Updated Shimrod All-in-One and Occults Only for patch 188.8.131.520 from changes due to Likes/Dislikes. Shooksims did not need an update.
2021 February 26th – Both are still compatible with patch 184.108.40.2060.
