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.
14 Oct 2006 Finally, Major update of bed to make it compatible with the base game.
Please re-download both bed and recolors, I don't don't think the old ones will work with the new mesh.

This project was started after a question posted by daydream58 from Sim A Little, Dream A Lot , in the, "Where can I find", thread at N99, so all thanks go to Deedee for sparking the idea.

I separated the drape from the Maxis Medieval Bed and cloned each as separate objects, the bed can be recolored and used now without having the drape. The Drapery is now a decorative object and takes it's texture from the bedding, both Maxis and all custom, so you can mix and match anyway you want.

Poly/Vert counts --

Bed -- 2426P 2569V
Drape -- 2598P 2969V
Together they total about 800 per tile for a 6 tile object. These are both still Maxis objects, so the poly and vert counts are original, all I did was separate them.

The drape will be found under Decorative - Misc in the catalog for 150§, the bed, under Seating - Beds, is 1050§.

If you want the bedskirt/dust ruffle seen in the photos that also takes it texture from the bedding, you can find it in this post Maxis Match Dust Ruffle/Bed skirt

I've added 3 recolors of the bed in a file as a separate download. You are welcome to create and post recolors of the bed anywhere you want, however the mesh MUST remain a free download. The mesh for the drape is different, the only way to recolor it is by recoloring the bedding.

My creations are File-Share-Friendly through email or IM and MUST remain that way.

Both are TS2 compatible, no expansions needed. If you have any problems please let me know.

Enjoy, Kat

Just yesterday, I was playing with my simmies and wishing there were more colour options for that bed! Thank you for taking it to the next level and separating the parts, it's wonderful
