Thanks you guys.. The bed frame, I made it after 3 retries lol. Hope you don't mind me elaborating a bit. I made it the first time, it was corrupt, JWoods fixed it but I found later it was a UNI bed so I recloned a bed to make it base game compatible but thought colonial was the bed I wanted to clone to enable the bedding but it wasn't so I cloned a 3rd time and wala, done. Course it now has the name 3rd Generation Hanging Bed lol.
I get that question quite a bit.
I'll look into uploading it as well.. Since many seem to want it.
Thanks for the compliments

**Seeking Opinions!! Please Read!!**
I wish I'd reserved the top post now. I went into game and tested the half size bed. Not the greatest so I'm going to post pics of it here and those who think I should fix it, please let me know (nicely) if you think it's something I should go back and fix.. Which will not be easy so make sure it's something that you cannot live with.

Please note Full size is fine..

I've noticed if lights are bright it's worse.. (the half bed only)

Bright lighting:

Indoors:

Indoors:

See how it's only the folded part of the sheet? It's like it's divided. I'm so sorry about that.. It would not be super easy to fix.. Especially how I made the sheet. I used transparency on it to make it look that way. But if it needs fixed, then it needs fixed. Otherwise, if you guys can handle it, I'll wait to fix it after I finish my other planned projects. :salute:

So, it's up to the downloaders to tell me if it's something that needs fixed or is doable..

Sorry about that.. I hardly ever use those beds. I pretty much stick to full size except for the Grand Trianon's bunk beds. :D

It still looks really nice, and apart from the small flaw, it is a really universal style... and looks cool 8)
Would be nice if fixed, but it doesn't stop the sims using it ....

Keep up the good work

Thanks Megavolt, my friend. Unfortunately the glitch bothers me enough I will fix it but not on rush order unless others just don't like it this way.. a majority case I guess.
I felt real bad when I went into the game to find that that way! I'm sorry again.. It's going to be a bugger to fix.. I'm afraid. But maybe not too terribly hard.

Thank you again!

I suppose that is a good thing. I still intend on adding some (extra bedding) to make up for it. They turned out ok, I found a way to remove a glitch of the pixels.. I'm just so overwhelmed at home. Victim of circumstance lol. Once I get it done though, I'll add it here. That should show the page was updated..

I'm really sorry to those whom it bothers. I still use it myself. It looks so good on the full beds (not trying to toot my own horn).

Thanks for understanding..
You too, Fergie

the zip version was at 984 downloads before I deleted it. I deleted it because we are allowed one of the two, not both. New rules: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=119826

But with the xpress install, things should be fine for you guys

Happy Simmin'!
