Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've always liked decorative bed blankets and pillows, but almost never used them. Clipping through sims would bug me, and no way I would remove those decorations by hand every time sims go to bed.

Today I offer you a mod, that automatically hides any decor located on a bed when a sim goes to sleep or (optionally) to relax in that bed.



Choose only one version of the mod.
Don't use, if your latest expansion or stuff pack is lower than Seasons.
M&G is not really required, but I'm on Ultimate Collection. If you're not, test in testing 'hood first to see if it works. And do back-up your data.
Conflicts with other mods:
- All versions except minimal conflict with ijUseInaccessibleBeds. If you want to keep it, use bed-unmade-minimal.
- The mod will conflict with any other mods that overwrite the same BHAVs as listed below (differ for each version).



Details:
- Mod only hides/unhides decor that occupies the same tiles that the bed - intersects it, basically. See pics for examples.
- When sims make the bed, the decor returns back. In case of double beds both sides need to be made for decor to appear.
- Hammocks are not supported.
- First load after installation: If your sims were saved while using a bed at the very moment you installed this mod, there may be weirdness in animation. You see, you've changed the function in the middle of it running, so the game is confused. Don't worry, it's one time glitch. If a pixel is trapped in the bed, use moveobjects cheat or force error on it. If a bed gets funny look, sell it and buy a copy.
- If the bed is removed while decorations are hidden, they will not go anywhere and stay in place being invisible. You can unmake and make new bed to unhide them, or delete hidden objects with yellow cube thingy (stuck object remover).

Regarding decor:
- Technically, the mod hides objects categorized as "garden sculptures". If a blanket/pillow is cloned from maxis decor item, chances are it will be categorized as such. Not to be confused with buy mode section! It doesn't matter where the item is found in buy mode.
- I tried random Jonesi Bed Blanket, Impi Bed Blanket, Impi Bed Pillows and they work. But you are not limited to those items.
- If you have an item that doesn't hide, you can make it work by editing its "Init" function to add category = Const 0x016C:0x30. Or if so happens that the mod hides something it's not supposed to, you can fix it too by changing object's internal category to something else. If you don't know how to do this, ask me or any object creator who is willing to help.

Versions:

bed-unmade
- Hides decor when sims go to sleep and relax.
- If you have Apartment Life, use bed-unmade-AL instead.

bed-unmade-norelax
- Hides decor when sims go to sleep, but not relax. In case you'd like sims to relax/cuddle/woohoo with extra decor.
- When sims fall asleep after woohoo, decor will magically dissappear.
- If you have Apartment Life, use bed-unmade-norelax-AL instead.

bed-unmade-AL
- Hides decor when sims go to sleep and relax.
- Apartment Murphy Bed included: hide decor when sims close it and unhide it after they open it.

bed-unmade-norelax-AL
- Hides decor when sims go to sleep, but not relax. In case you'd like sims to relax/cuddle/woohoo with extra decor.
- When sims fall asleep after woohoo, decor will magically dissappear.
- Apartment Murphy Bed included: hide decor when sims close it and unhide it after they open it.

bed-unmade-minimal
- The least aesthetically pleasing version, but has only one tiny-teeny bhav. Choose it only in case you encounter conflicts with other mods or some other problems.
- Hides decor after sims go to sleep.
- When sims fall asleep after woohoo - decor stays.
