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.

3rd Generation Hanging Bed

by xts

Tested and worked great with "Open for Business EP" March 1st, 2006: Further testing has shown that this bed can be made available for sale by opening a business and going into the mode of sale using the "control tab" top right of your screen while in game. Select the "tag" and lockdown available objects for sale (you'll see a lock there to click on for this).

I've tested this bed with PETS and have seen no problems as of yet. If anyone has any problems, PLEASE post in here. Thank you!

Fully Hanging Bed (by chains) (the texture file is all one piece so recoloring it will give the chains and the bedding the texture)

Everything else I upload will be my work unless otherwise stated, like now
Thanks goes to MTS2, SimPe, MeshTool, UVMapper, EA Games and a special thanks to the moderators for tolerating me and another special thanks to those whom appreciate my work

CEP3 CLONE (object is colour-enabled thanks to the CEP3).
NOTE:As of Sep 2008 the CEP is version 9.

If you'd like to say thanks, there's a button to the left an there's plenty of thread below.

The story on the bed: This is a very lucky bed lol. It began as generation 1 but was somehow corrupted bigtime. Thanks to JWoods it was fixed BUT it was a Uni bed (I later found out). I then recloned it so it'd be base game compatible (2nd generation bed) BUT I cloned the colonial and thanks to Numenor I learned that won't do to enable all the bedding so I again cloned it, hence the 3rd Generation Hanging Bed. Many hours and much help on this one, even for such a simple bugger!

Thank you guys
It's your appreciation that makes all this uploading worth it :D

EDIT: With given credits to xts and link back here(so others can see the credits for the chain) and keep it free, you can upload this within a lot, recolor it or share it.

I dedicate this bed to my beau since together we thought a version of it up.

I just wanted everyone to know that the bed still works fine, it's now 16 Sep 2008 and I've still had no problems. I've got all the EP's, including AL and the stuff packs. No conflicts, no bugs.


And of course, Thank you so much for your comments and downloads (and uploads) :D

lol @ JazzKitty.. I thought the same thing.. I'd love to have a real life bed like this.. Thank you for appreciating it! ^.^

tisjustmj, Thank you for your support.. I hope it is just as pleasant in your game as it is in your imagination.. You are very welcome. I'm glad to see that while we are at Sims 4 nowadays, people still play the older versions of the game and appreciate my old creations..

Just a note, I do not mod for the older games, nor the new, any longer. I depend on other modders for my mods now and what time I have, I try to play the game. (And I have very little time over the last few years). I'm so glad I was able to create things for others to enjoy before my schedule became so swamped. It still makes me smile when folks like you let me know you like it.. I get that warm fuzzy feeling.. LOL ^.^

Happy Modding, Happy Simming!
