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.
This is a copy of the Maxis canopy bed that came with University, reworked into a single bed. It should work with all versions of TS2, the base mesh is from the original TS2 game. Please let me know if you have any problem with it.

Polygons (faces) = 3514
Vertices = 4327
These counts include bedding.

I've tried getting them down lower, but the drapes start to lose their shape. But, still for a 3 tile 2 part object I don't consider this to be to high, if you compare it to the Maxis single bed "Bed by St. Ajoque", at 5413 polygons and 6570 vertices, I'd have to say it's not high at all.

It has it's own GUID so it will not overwrite any other object in the game.

As with all my work, they are 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.

UPDATE 8/21/05

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

Enjoy, Kathy

Kathy, I just wanted to say an additional thanks for all the beautiful things that you're making!! You are such a giving person to allow them to be recoloered as well .... since i can't do anything with a 3-D program except for previewing my textures on someone else's mesh!!!!

Thank you again!!!!

These are beautiful, I am so thankful. These will look wonderful in my medieval neighborhood, an so much better than the medieval bed without the canopy.
