Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated August 8, 2007 - Updated No Ep Version to fix flashing blue problems...I hope. Please realize I do not use the no ep version and can only test in Life Stories. I do believe you may need at least on EP for this to work. If this new version still causes flashing blue problems please let me know.

Update August 4, 2007 - Posted NoEp version only. I had a global setting in the animation portion of this bed that caused problems with bedding on other beds. Please overwrite your previous version. Sorry for the inconvience.

Update July 29, 2007 No EP Version: I change the animation file for the base game (noep) version. I tested it in Life Stories and it no longer makes the bed go flashing blue, but the toddler will not jump on the bed. They will still relax, and go to sleep. The option to jump on the bed is still available but it is non autonomous. This will may enable those that have some EP's to use the jump on bed action.

If you have had problems with the bed please download the noep version.

It is possible that the animations may not work for those that don't have all EP's. One user has reported the same problems I found when I used it with Sim Life Stories. I have no way to test and am dependent on input from users. Please let me know if anyone without EP's is able to get this to work for them.

I have all EP and never play my game without boolprop testingcheatsenabled true.

SimPetStories does not have this cheat at least that I can find. I was able to use the relax and sleep for toddlers with no problem but the jump action caused the bed to flash blue and would not allow the toddler to jump on it.

The animations revision is something I didn't read in any tutorial it's something I totally figured out on my own. I'm personally so much happier with this version. I really hope some of you enjoy it too.

Please only download one version the Pets version also requires University EP. Thanks to bluemoon11 for telling me which version the majestically medieval bed came with.

I use the repository technique for bedding and frame, textures are pulled from maxis items.
Comfort is 8 as is Energy.

It's found under Seating/Beds for $25. I will increase the price in my final version. I'd also appreciate input as to the price you all would like to see thie bed have.

Toddlers can jump on this bed but I did set it to non-autonomous as that's all my toddlers wanted to do, I think it's a little more realistic to see a toddler jumping on a bed as opposed to a child. When toddlers are tired they will go to bed on their own. Toddlers can relax and daydream also.

Please note most of my modifications are for testing purposes at this time. If you find anything that does not work for you please tell me. I will do my best to resolve the issue.

I update my items on a daily basis. To easily find the updates check this link: Please report problems with my objects if they exist. To be honest people complaining without explaining upsets me a lot. I don't ask for more than a thank-you for my work.

Please be nice to creators, they do this out of the goodness of their hearts. Take time to thank them for the items you download. There's an added benfit to clicking the thanks button. Once you do so it will tell you you've already thanked that post, if you ever have a need to go back to that thread you'll know instantly if you've download it with the thanks button gone.

Jumping on bed
To see an animation of this bed you can find it here
Sorry it's to large for this system to accept.

This is my other toddler bed found here:

The non EP version has comfort 7 and energy 6. I tested in Life Stories but get an animation error. It does work in Life Pets. If anyone find that it does not work without any EP's please let me know. If you download the non ep version before 3AM EST please redownload. I'm so sorry I forgot to enable the jump on bed for this version. The file is corrected now.

Thanks to all of the following tutorial creators:

What a fantastic idea! I've not tried anything like it before but will now. I'll be more than happy to report anything which might be funky. Great job and thanks for making this for us!

This looks amazing. You and I seem to be on the same wavelength, however much further behind I am from you. I've downloaded all your toddler items and love it when a new one comes out. You are one of my favorite creators and I hope to one day be as good at object making as you have, though by the time I get there I think you will have made all the things I wanted too.

I can't wait to try this. I've been using Atavera's toddler blanket but the kids look so uncomfortable sleeping on the floor. I like the fact that they can daydream and relax also. Toddlers need to be given more perks in this game!! Thanks!! (Well, I guess I'll download it when the server is NOT busy - :b)

lol I thank everything I download just so I can know if I downloaded it! It's a really good system. =)

Also, thank you for this bed, I never have toddler sims but I think I will make some to try this out!

Oh thanks so much for this information. I had no idea which one it came with.
#8 Old 29th Jul 2007 at 6:40 AM
This looks great, I'm going to test it out when I can. My sim has a baby on the way too! I love that it's for adults too, then it'll be awesome for movies/stories.

I've just recently started letting my sims have babies since I found this clock that doesn't allow certain age groups to grow up. I've got a bumper crop now and this is going to be handy. Thank you so much for making this.

That's a cute idea! I like the animations, too --- I wish my game ran that fast *kicks computer*

Does this font make me look fat?

Thank you for this item, the animations are too cute.
I cannot imagine a person sending such a hateful message to you. If that person is so unhappy perhaps he/she should try making their own creations.
I cannot even draw a stick man, so without the generosity of the creators I would be left the the items that come with the game. UGHHH!!!
I am glad that you posted that comment, it shows how insensitive some people can be, perhaps it will be an inclination to some to press that Thank You button.
When a person gives you a gift it is only right to thank them. Just remember, not everyone is like that person.
#17 Old 29th Jul 2007 at 9:25 AM
Thanks for making this , ever since you started making toddler stuff I have been playing more toddlers in my game. Sorry that somebody sent you a bad note, hopefully the good ones will help.
