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 MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This bed was made in answer to a request for my platform bed but with base and drawers. I thought a nice side table would look good with it, table finish also matches the other platform bed

Both meshes were created with MilkShape, object creating done using SimPE ver 0.35 and the MeshTool by Miche & Delphy.

Both have been optimized for low poly count, and work well in my own game.

Would like to know if they work without University, since I have it installed I can't tell.

Since everyone seem to want to know all specs on objects, here is the rundown on these --

Bed -
Comfort - 7
Energy - 8
Room - 5
Poly count - 168 (frame without bedding, and yes, that is the correct #, 168) with bedding - 1676
Vertice count - 1250

Table -
Room - 5
Poly count - 60 in Milkshape, in SimPE - 70
Vertice count - 140

Table base was the Cozy Colonial End Table that appears under Coffee Tables in the catalog. I wanted a low base that would be about the same height as the bed so this was the only option. For that reason you will find the table under Coffee Tables until I figure out where to change it.

To place objects on the lower shelf, use the, "move_objects on" cheat, (be sure to use the, "move_objects off", right after to avoid any problem with the cheat.).

Free to re-colour as you want, however if you post on a pay site, this mesh MUST remain a free download, or post a link to a free download.
Anything made by me is File-Share-Friendly and MUST remain that way.

Enjoy, Kathy

:howdy: Forgot to mention the bed uses all custom and Maxis bedding.

Same here, I love your original storage beds and use them in all my dorms. I'm sure these will be fine in game too but I'll let you know if I have any issues. Thanks.

Update: I've got three of them in one of my dorms now, working perfectly. I can't tell you how much I love them. Especially in that they're affordable but without cutting out on quality. Thanks!
