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

Hello
Can you read minds? LOL
I can't remember how many times I wish to have something like this.
I love this Maxis bed. I love how you enhanced this favorite object.

In addition I wonder why they (Maxis object makers) didn't think of it in the first place?

I would have thought that being able to change the bed curtains to match window curtains was obvious and sort of expected option for this object.

Anywho congrates to you for making my dream come true.

Kathy, you did an awesome job on this! I'm surprised that you were able to do it so quickly after discussing it at N99. Wonderful work! :D

Ever want something, but not sure what it is until you see it? That's how I feel about this bed! Awesome! I love it!

This sounds amazing, I can't wait to put it in my game! I love that bed but never end up using it because it's so hard to coordinate with bedding. Thanks!!

Thank you - I've always been so disappointed in the straight Maxis version because it's just not masculine enough for some simsituations (lace? c'mon). This is terrific! I'm d/l and putting in my CTN folder (which is growing nicely, I might add).

You can never have too much yarn, fabric, or books.

Thank you very much for creating this, I've have been frustrated with the limitation of the Maxis default version of this bed. Don't get me wrong, I like this bed very much, but your version is just what I wanted. Thank you again!

I love this concept and with the curtains that also match the bedding.. I am now set. Thank you so very very much.. this is just an awesome concept and why Maxis didn't think of it.. Well.. we all know the modders are the ones that makes our game great. Thanks for expanding my choices!!

I've always wanted to use this bed but hated the bedding choices and no match. Thank you so much for the fix. I can't wait to play this. You did a wonderful job. 5 stars!

Default Thank you
I don't know what else to write except thank you, thank you. I have been so saad waiting for my intel mac patches, but even when they came through and I could use the ep's, the beds (my favorites) are fairly limiting. Everything you touch is golden, truly. Please keep up the wonderful work, you make my life so easy (or wait a minute...my simulated life, right? Uhuh....) thank you, thank you.http://www.modthesims2.com/newreply...te=1&p=1264422#
