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.

Mini-Boat by Solgaya

Sweet,colourful "Mini-Boat" with paddels!
A new bed, made to look like a boat.

The bed is from the base game.
This new mesh needs NO Ep's so it works with all games.
It is cloned from the maxis "Bed - Double - Art Nouveau" thus the new "Mini-Boat" has the same functions.
This doesn't replace the original bed in any way, completely seperate.

It appear in the Catalog Sort: Bedroom.
In the Function Sort it is found under "Seating"

The mesh and texture was created with SimPE Version 0.60,
Paint shop 9 and Milkshape.

A must-have for my Tropicana neighbourhood! I've been waiting for someone to do that : sims can only take a nap on the rubber boat, long chairs & on beach towels....
Thank you so much for this great item!

Your bed boat is so cool. I wonder what does woo hoo look like in your bed boat. :D

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
