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.

3rd Generation Hanging Bed

by xts

Tested and worked great with "Open for Business EP" March 1st, 2006: Further testing has shown that this bed can be made available for sale by opening a business and going into the mode of sale using the "control tab" top right of your screen while in game. Select the "tag" and lockdown available objects for sale (you'll see a lock there to click on for this).

I've tested this bed with PETS and have seen no problems as of yet. If anyone has any problems, PLEASE post in here. Thank you!

Fully Hanging Bed (by chains) (the texture file is all one piece so recoloring it will give the chains and the bedding the texture)

Count information:

(frame only edited so, frame only information)

Origina Bed WAS:
Vertices: 9195 Triangles:6345

Vertices:5242 Triangles:3094

(the bedding can be gotten here:

Everything else I upload will be my work unless otherwise stated, like now
Thanks goes to MTS2, SimPe, MeshTool, UVMapper, EA Games and a special thanks to the moderators for tolerating me and another special thanks to those whom appreciate my work

CEP3 CLONE (object is colour-enabled thanks to the CEP3).
NOTE:As of Sep 2008 the CEP is version 9.

If you'd like to say thanks, there's a button to the left an there's plenty of thread below.

The story on the bed: This is a very lucky bed lol. It began as generation 1 but was somehow corrupted bigtime. Thanks to JWoods it was fixed BUT it was a Uni bed (I later found out). I then recloned it so it'd be base game compatible (2nd generation bed) BUT I cloned the colonial and thanks to Numenor I learned that won't do to enable all the bedding so I again cloned it, hence the 3rd Generation Hanging Bed. Many hours and much help on this one, even for such a simple bugger!

Thank you guys
It's your appreciation that makes all this uploading worth it :D

EDIT: With given credits to xts and link back here(so others can see the credits for the chain) and keep it free, you can upload this within a lot, recolor it or share it.

I dedicate this bed to my beau since together we thought a version of it up.

If you are interested in the "star" bedding, you can get it

Wow, the bed did better than I thought it would. If it makes you guys feel better, I want one too! That's why I made it. lol. My beau and I have talked for a while about dream beds..

If it's too dark in game, recoloring is simple! If you have paint shop pro, it's super simple! All you'll need is "adjust" and "Hue and saturation" to recolor and you could also mess with the contrast if you'd like.. Since it was a 3rd generation bed, I was very tired of redoing it, which is why the recoloring part is all the same color. I was very frustrated with it. If you know how to mod, it won't be too hard to recolor the other parts your way.. By going into a 3d program, you can reseperate the parts and map them seperately. Just remember to only import the frame.. Only the frame was edited.

There's alot of comments so I can't reply to all individually so I hope you accept a group thank you
I do read your comments and I like what you say lol. Thank goodness it's constructive and/or positive :D
Have fun !

punkmonkey: I didn't answer because I didn't know how to answer but I can say I cannot do what you are asking either. I only know how to modify what is here already.. or objects that don't have alot of animation. I'm very limited on my abilities myself.
I don't suggest you give up in your search though. One modder here might be able to do it.. Just not me. Sorry..

Hope you find it though!

Thank you both! You know, I just am thankful that through all my hard times that I got this bed up before they hit again! Otherwise you wouldn't have it yet. Hope it does great in all of your games! Seems to be one of my greatest inventions. Glad I could do something lol.
