Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated August 8, 2007 - Updated No Ep Version to fix flashing blue problems...I hope. Please realize I do not use the no ep version and can only test in Life Stories. I do believe you may need at least on EP for this to work. If this new version still causes flashing blue problems please let me know.

Update August 4, 2007 - Posted NoEp version only. I had a global setting in the animation portion of this bed that caused problems with bedding on other beds. Please overwrite your previous version. Sorry for the inconvience.

Update July 29, 2007 No EP Version: I change the animation file for the base game (noep) version. I tested it in Life Stories and it no longer makes the bed go flashing blue, but the toddler will not jump on the bed. They will still relax, and go to sleep. The option to jump on the bed is still available but it is non autonomous. This will may enable those that have some EP's to use the jump on bed action.

If you have had problems with the bed please download the noep version.

It is possible that the animations may not work for those that don't have all EP's. One user has reported the same problems I found when I used it with Sim Life Stories. I have no way to test and am dependent on input from users. Please let me know if anyone without EP's is able to get this to work for them.

I have all EP and never play my game without boolprop testingcheatsenabled true.

SimPetStories does not have this cheat at least that I can find. I was able to use the relax and sleep for toddlers with no problem but the jump action caused the bed to flash blue and would not allow the toddler to jump on it.


The animations revision is something I didn't read in any tutorial it's something I totally figured out on my own. I'm personally so much happier with this version. I really hope some of you enjoy it too.

Please only download one version the Pets version also requires University EP. Thanks to bluemoon11 for telling me which version the majestically medieval bed came with.


I use the repository technique for bedding and frame, textures are pulled from maxis items.
Comfort is 8 as is Energy.

It's found under Seating/Beds for $25. I will increase the price in my final version. I'd also appreciate input as to the price you all would like to see thie bed have.

Toddlers can jump on this bed but I did set it to non-autonomous as that's all my toddlers wanted to do, I think it's a little more realistic to see a toddler jumping on a bed as opposed to a child. When toddlers are tired they will go to bed on their own. Toddlers can relax and daydream also.

Please note most of my modifications are for testing purposes at this time. If you find anything that does not work for you please tell me. I will do my best to resolve the issue.

I update my items on a daily basis. To easily find the updates check this link:
http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/rebecah Please report problems with my objects if they exist. To be honest people complaining without explaining upsets me a lot. I don't ask for more than a thank-you for my work.

Please be nice to creators, they do this out of the goodness of their hearts. Take time to thank them for the items you download. There's an added benfit to clicking the thanks button. Once you do so it will tell you you've already thanked that post, if you ever have a need to go back to that thread you'll know instantly if you've download it with the thanks button gone.

Jumping on bed
To see an animation of this bed you can find it here

Sorry it's to large for this system to accept.

This is my other toddler bed found here:
http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/...ad.php?t=241724





The non EP version has comfort 7 and energy 6. I tested in Life Stories but get an animation error. It does work in Life Pets. If anyone find that it does not work without any EP's please let me know. If you download the non ep version before 3AM EST please redownload. I'm so sorry I forgot to enable the jump on bed for this version. The file is corrected now.

This is a truly beautiful and unique creation, and I for one love it! Just a curious question, have any plans on making an "ordinary" double bed with the same animations? That would be so very, very nice in addition to this one. :D

Thank you so much for this! I'm really excited to try this out.

I have Heather Huffington in a trailer right now and she's popping out a whole bunch of babies - space is, of course, at a premium, and the budget is tight, so this is absolutely perfect! :-)

Please keep up the good work, and don't let such nasty comments get you down - there will always be jerks who try to bring you down :-(

I am kinda amazed that a person would take the time to just slag someone off for making stuff for us to play with and who is asking nothing in return than thanks . So a big thanks and sorry that people forget that they are potentially hurting someone’s feelings that has done them no harm by the arbitrary things they say

That is SOOO cool !! Thank you!!

One thing I don't get though...


In the second picture it shows a toddler jumping on a a different bed than the medival one.

Is it a hack apply to all beds, or just the medival one and whichever bed you were using in that picture.


It just kind of confuses me?


But still great work =]]

wow this is awesome ....great job .always wanted my toddler able to sleep in a bed with parents if the parent chooses that ...now i can do stories where a toddler has a bad dream and mother sims says * aww dont worry, come sleep with me for tonight*

PS ..dont worry about people who send bad messages...i have created some paintings and i know the work that goes into them....cant even think about the work that it takes doing new animations like this that u have done.

personally i think delphi should get some ppl working on here that just deals with people who send messages like that...one warning ( if it is neccessary) and then ban from site for a few days ..this if it continues ..ban for life ...it happens with alot of great creators and they end up leaving ..KEEP mod the sims site friendly!!

This is awesome. Thank you.

How ridiculous that people would be so rude to creators. You guys put in time to make things that people at Maxis get paid to do, and you do it for free. Seriously.

Sorry my animated gif for this bed was too big for this system. This is from my other toddler bed found here:
http://www.modthesims2.com/creator/...ad.php?t=241724

I do have an animation posted here if you would like to see it:
http://www.sims2valley.com/forum/showthread.php?t=578

The base that I used was the Majestically Medieval bed, not the actual frame.

Sorry to confuse anyone.

"P.S. The majestically medieval bed is from University."

Aww man! Could you make one that uses a bed from the base game, because I love this creation but I don't own University.

Thank you, miss! You are a wildly imaginative creator and my Sim families and I appreciate your efforts immensely.

Please keep up your great work, so those such as I (who are unable to invent and execute) can enjoy the game more and more. Many many thanks! :D

You can use the noep version. I created both. Or are you saying you want it to work with pets and not require university?

I will download this as soon as I am on the right computer and of course it lets me, because this is so cute. I have to tell you though, that whenever I see your name as creator for some object my automatic responce is to look at it and most of the time I download them, because I think you have the most amazing items for my toddlers and my toddlers are numberous. I don't know. It's possible I've had problems with them, but I sure don't remember any. I have a bed (made by someone else) which I use all the time, that sticks through the walls quite prominately. I have another bed (made by someone else) which my sims seem to be absorbed by the bed. Both our very good beds so I ignore the animation problems and keepn using them. With yours I don't recall problems. I look foward to many more amazing downloads by you and I have the perfect household to try this out on. Two sisters who share a household with their husbands and one child each, whom I am planning to both have cheescake twins once the children are teens. I'm am so going drive myself crazy, but I survived a household with six toddlers. I can survive this. This bed will be awesome. Thank you for all the items you have made.

Testing... I have The Sims 2 Nightlife, University, and OFB, and the Holiday pack.
Hmm, the game loads and the object is fine until you start doing things with it. The toddler can't get up onto the bed to jump on it, but if it tries to relax the bed starts flashing blue and nothing happens. The bed continues flashing and does not stop, even when other interactions are used on it. The adult can relax and everything just fine. That's how mine worked.

Thanks so much for your help. Did you use the noep version? I had this exact problem with Life Stories. The bed may use animations that came with pets. Or you may have to use the boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true
