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.

First, allow me to add that the animation is wonderfully done and the bed makes a very nice decorative peice for toddler rooms. So I thank you for this.

However, I like a few others have been experiencing the strange flashing everytime my sims interact with it. I have tried both the "Pets EP" and the "No EP" versions.

I will try re-downloading these files again and give you my result soon.

Perhaps this may be a problem for users getting the same results as me. I will try this as well when I reinstall the package files.

Yes, I did use the noep version. I have the Seasons EP now, so I redownloaded it and am trying it again...

Oh, it works! The toddler floating up toward the bed looks kinda funny, but I suppose it can't be helped. ^_^ Yay!

Oh! I just realized, whether you use it regularly or with testingcheats, jumping on the bed does not work. Relaxing and sleeping does, though.

This bed turned blue in my game and kept blinking and every time the toddlers tried to use it, they just stopped and fell down. Did anyone else experience a problem similar to this?

Did you download the newest version? I tested it in Life Stories and it works ok except for the jumping on the bed. You do need most of the EP's for this option to work and run with boolprop testingcheatsenabled true.

Top of this post I have the following:
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.

I'm afraid in the future I have to only create items for full EP's installation setting.

This is what happened in my game.

Rebecah, I assume you know about Numenor's basegame start-up mod, which should allow you to make and test things without EPs.

I haven't tried Rebecah's latest version, as far as I can remember. Maybe I should , and see if it works for me.

No I don't know about his base game start-up mod. I may check into it, but I really don't have a personal need for base game items myself.

The basegame starter is here:

I personally very much appreciate creators who go to the trouble of making their items usable for everyone - it's sad when many beautiful items are unusable.

Anyway, thanks for trying at least - and I'll be back when I get some EPs.

I do try to do no ep for the most part but I found that too many things don't work for base game so I get a little frustrated with it. Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me about Numenors base game starter. I do know I've had so a few complaints for base game versions on my beds that's why I did this as a pets version.

Thanks again.

Or can I download this if I have Pets?

If you have pets you would want the pet version. Sims Life Stories and Sims Pet Stories are other EA games that these items are compatible with.

Default Tots Sleep With Eyes Wide Open
I know I'm late in the game on testing this bed, but I have finally done it. The toddler's sleeping positions have some errors as far as how their body lays on the bed and even during their side sleeping position, they will hang off of the bed. Also, the toddlers sleep with their eyes wide open. I took 3 screen shots for you.




Thanks again for all the stuff you create to make our Simmie's lives more real!

It is actually better to have the toddlers on the right side of the bed. The eyes open is from the EA animations, and actually we currently can't do facial animations with MilkShape. Sorry!

I am working on this to make the bedding work. I do have a version the the bedding is working but it isn't quite right.

rebecah, this bed is so wonderful!! I made myself a household with 8 toddlers just to play with it :-)
Stupid thing is - the toddlers refuse to share the bed with their sibblings and I just can't figure out how to raise their relationships to the point that they will. Would You know how to go about it or just what the threshold relationship would be? For now I'm simply juggling their energy levels because I flatly refuse to let go of these beds! :-)

Thank You so much for Your wonderful work!

I use insimenator and the pink balloon to adjust their relationships to each other. My 2 toddler sofa will also raise their relationships. You can find one of them here:

Hello Rebecah!
Thank you for your response. Being a Mac user the insimenator doesn't work for me. However, I just found a way to make them friends using the toy box. Since the first one to play will sit right in front of the box I either move the box (move_objects on) or make them drop the first toy and go for a second one. Two toddlers playing with two toys from the same toy box at the same time will boost their relationship like a charm :-) Doesn't seem to work for more than two at a time though.

Now I got to run and try that 2 toddler sofa of yours!
Thank you again and have a great day!,
