Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is the little sister of the expensive EA crib. I changed it more than I had originally planned to (partly because I found the EA mesh was not that nice after all, partly due to technical reasons (you know how stubborn little sisters can be)), but it's still sort of "EA matching" in my eyes. I mainly did this because I play top-down and with expensive EA crib, I can never see whether there's a sim in it since the paravent is in the way .. and the cheap one just looks too much like something from a hospital. So, here's a non-frilly, useable, nice one.
In an attempt to get the stupid wallshadow to work, I fixed/changed a bunch of other things (but not the wallshadow, grr):
The indoor wallshadow is still the old one, apparently it's not known how this works. And the mapping of the low-res mesh is now more out of whack than before, due to the remapping – I can't fix this at the moment, but, again, this mesh is only visible in-game while it's still loading, not during gameplay, so I don't consider this a major issue.
If you remove the old crib, you may need to "resetsim" toddlers or babies that were using it.
HugeLunatic made a very cute one-tile version of this crib; it's available here.
All of the screenshots below are showing the first version.
Comparison picture (these are the default materials, same on both cribs):
Changes I made:
- removed the paravent and dust ruffle
- swapped the curved sides and bottom bits for straight ones
- made the little knobs at the top of the legs smaller, and less pumpkin-shaped
- made those slider bits (where the front part goes up and down) the same colour as the frame, instead of black
- slightly remapped it (argh) and retextured the whole thing (double argh)
My shadow texture is slightly lighter than the EA one – I had it matched but then I thought it just looked too dull. The mapping of the mattress and ruffles around the back and sides is unchanged (which means: a bit stupid, since it's rotated at 90°, but I only noticed that when I had entirely run out of patience).
Presets are the EA ones; it costs 280§ in game and has the same stats and catalogue flags as the original. Four recolourable parts (body, mattress, ruffle, and
Made from base game 1.8.25 files.
- the indoor raytracing shadow is that of the original (see "knownissues" screenshot). I have no idea how to change this – if I find it too annoying on the long run, I'll either reclone it or, if I can figure out how, make it use my mesh instead.
- the low-res mesh probably has mapping issues, but you don't normally see that mesh in game anyway. I can't recompile it at the moment, so I can't change this.
Please note that some screenshots show a slightly older version – the front side does stick out the bottom in the final one (because otherwise, there'd be a gap when it's closed). All of the playtesting screenshots show the final version.
Made in blender with the help of s3pe, s3oc, Aorta, SquishDDS, Photoshop, Milkshape, and S3 Object Mesh Tool.
The high-resolution mesh has 750 faces, 1053 vertices. The low resolution one has 308 faces, 496 vertices.
