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.
I was looking through the requests and found the most wonderful photo of a Futon bed in *"This Post", so I just could not resist making it for the Sims.

Polygon count = 1568, vertices = 1029
Price = 600 §, Comfort = 7, Energy = 8, Room = 5.
Uses all Maxis and custom bedding.
Base mesh is the black stain, white stain is the recolour.

The table from my Platform Storage Bed matches the finish and can be found in, "This Post".

Please let me know if you have any problem using it without University.

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

***Added info June 9 --
Matching dresser can now be found HERE

UPDATE 8/21/05

Changed the comfort, sleep and relax values on the bed to match their posted values.


The Mesh is in the, "CTN_FauxFutonSlatBed.zip", package, the other file is the white recolor.

(UPDATE 2/22/06)
I was asked where the bedding was from, sorry, I forgot to post that info, the bedding is by me also and can be found in this post Simple Canopy Bed Set

Yeah it does, and the files inside are identical except that one file is just a tiny bit bigger than the other. 1139 758 bytes and 1139 759 bytes. I don't know which one to keep, and I really love this bed.

Keep the one with the newest date, I forgot to remove the older version when I updated the sleep/comfort values.

Sorry about that, Kat

It's not catagorized for downtown, but you can place it in a Collection and then make the Collection available as Community. Do a search for directions on how to change it, I believe there is a tutorial in the Create section of MTS2.

That's not a futon.
