Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Baby Blanket Default Replacements
Two Options Made by Daluved1 for The Merrye Makers

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven (now twelve) creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding".

In most Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding homes, babies were often swaddled, theoretically to help their arms and legs grow straight. Swaddling involved wrapping the infant in linen strips with legs together and arms close to the body. This, of course, immobilized them and made them much easier to keep out of trouble. But infants were not swaddled continuously. They were changed regularly and released from their bonds to crawl around, be snuggled, and be played with. The swaddling might come off altogether when the child was old enough to sit up on his own. Whether swaddled or not, Simdom Pudding babies spent much of their time in their cribs when at home. Busy peasant mothers might tie unswaddled babies into the crib, allowing them to move within it but keeping them from crawling into trouble. Simdom Pudding mothers who loved the outdoors often carried their babies about in their arms on their errands in map view. Many infants could be found near their green thumbed parents as they labored in the gardens at the busiest harvest times, on the ground, or secured in a tree. Babies who were not swaddled were very often simply naked, or wrapped in blankets against the cold. Wealthier Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding babies were clad in simple gowns. Strong and handsome, Simdom Pudding children quickly outgrew anything sewn especially for them and a variety of baby clothing was not an economic feasibility in poorer homes in the realm.


Two options for baby blanket default replacements made by Daluved1 for The Merrye Makers. They are small caspart and XML edits that:

1. Change the default colors of the blankets for male and female babies, or
2. Change the default color for all baby blankets regardless of gender.

Please download only one default replacement option as they will conflict with each other. This baby blanket default replacement / override should not conflict with any other mods except another mod which changes baby blanket color resources.

Important Information for modders
The name of the overwritten CAS Parts are bubody (male baby) and bfbody (female baby). If your mod also edits these resources there will be a conflict. Please see below the TGI data for the changed resources:


If desired, the blankets can be CASTed with Twallan's Master Controller. Link here: If you do not have Twallan's Master Controller - or a similar mod - installed, you cannot change the infant blanket colors or textures.

Option 1
Changes the default colors of female baby blankets to white and male baby blankets to tan.

Option 2
Changes the default color of all baby blankets to white.
