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.
The perfect bed for your mad scientist! This cryogenic freezer bed is great for preserving yourself, or your victims - or should I say experimental specimens - in perfect physical condition. Great bed for vampires who don't wish to dwell in the past!

- Curved part of lid separately recolourable from base
- Not suitable for placement against walls.

Known Issues:
- The shadow of the sim remains visible on the floor beneath the bed. Placing a mesh-based rug underneath the bed will hide it. I'll post a fixed version if I ever figure out how to make the Sim's shadow disappear.
- In the open position, the lid will clip into the wall if the bed is placed against a wall.

- base in beige, black, green, purple, and red
- solid lids in beige, black, blue, green, purple and red
- lid frost recolour with smaller alpha area
- lid black alpha stripes
- lid bright green alpha stripes

Polygon Counts:
Bed: 4858

Additional Credits:
SimPE, 3DS Max, Milkshape, Photoshop

try finding an invisible mesh rug to cover up the shadow.

Hooray! I have a Sim or two in need of this. Thank you.

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.
Perhaps someday I'll have leisure time back...

I don't believe that would work, since all a mesh rug does is cover over the shadow, it doesn't actually remove it. One nice thing, the mesh rugs I tested with (Echo/Windkeeper meshes) seem to fall in height between the groundshadow and the character shadow, so while the character shadow gets covered, the object shadow remained visible.

No, non-vampires can also use it as a bed. Not a particularly comfortable one, mind you, but it functions like a single bed for regular humans.

Thanks, This is awesome, but it's only usable for vampires, is there any way you could mod it? Thanks again!

See post directly above your post, onp36 - it already is usable by humans. I used a human in testing it when making it, so I am 100% sure on that fact.

However, as with all beds, they must of course be tired enough to be able to sleep.

I think I may use this for a Sim some who wishes to meet their grandchildren but doesn't have a lot of time left...

I don't get why so many Simmers hate Marsha Bruenig. She actually grows up to be quite pretty if you allow her to.

Whenever their energy need goes all the way up they get out, Why do you say it will preserve them if it doesn't, that is very misleading.

I apologize for my outburst earlier, I know this is not because of you, it's because of a certain expansion that I have. Could you update that please?

Could someone, anyone at least respond to my posts? I am getting very sick of being ignored in every single one of my posts!!! Everyone else gets their questions answered, why not me? I want to know why on earth it does not work?! What expansion pack do I need?!

Lestatdelion, it's probably only supposed to look like a freezer, not actually preserve your Sims. That's just my guess though. There is a hack here on MTS2 that allows you to turn individual aging on and off though.
