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.
There's nothing much to say about this. I play Medieval style; there's no such thing as pet beds outside of the Nobility.
So there we go! Uploaded for this month's #petstheme
(I basically took the EA mesh of the debug Haystack - remeshed it in Milkshape to half the size, matched up the height with the small pet bed, then swapped it all out and changed some stuff around, like textures, and transparency etc)
Cannot be designed - it's Yellow-ish Straw -though I left the channel open if you wanted to remove the stencil or whatever.



Polygon Counts:
398 Verticles

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I try to play Medieval style on Sims 3 in Dragonvalley , but, the cars driving by and the cell phone ruins it. So, I have just been playing The Sims Medieval instead. I would love to play on Sims 3 or sims 4 so I am free to play the way I want without all the quest The Sims Medieval has.

Stardust74, try this mod to remove the cellphones: http://modthesims.info/t/562581 it works perfectly, no more stupid phone ringin' all the time, no more autonomous 'show disgusting video' etc.. and you can reactivate them whenever you want if you need it! (I reactivate them from time to time to order food from the restaurant, that order food mod by Ani requires the cellphones sadly...) The opportunities still appear, and also the parties invitations lol. Don't forget to hide a home phone somewhere in case you need to call the fire dept or something.

I'm in the process of completeing a tutorial on how to covert TS3>TSM for gameplay. You can read the first part here:
https://declarations-of-drama.tumbl...le-ages-ok-lets
I'm just about finished on the second part which will focus on essential mods like the one MiniMimi mentioned. Eventually I hope to complete a full series on how I play in 1490's Europe. Hope this helps! X

Hi when I tested this the cat slept guarded and napped just fine but 2 times after napping the cat sat near the edge of hay pile and then either looked up while sitting or stretched when getting up. I am not sure which it was supposed to do because instead it turned into the monster glitch thing when it turned back it was standing. Just to be sure the glitch was the scattered one I deleted it and put the game small bed where I had yours the cat didn’t glitch with the normal one. It did sit in the same spot and one time it did a small stretch when getting up and another time it looked up while sitting which why I believe one of those is what it was trying to do when it glitched with the scattered bed.

I know that the maker of this isn’t on anymore but I still felt I should post this for those who might be thinking of downloading I was so sorry to see the glitch because I was hoping to one day do a warrior cat challenge and use this bed I can’t now because I would have clan cats randomly changing into monsters! I would they would be the monster clan cats!

I'm very sorry to hear this. I've just come back to Simming and haven't yet had a go at modding stuff again. This will be first task on my list when I do.
Will post back update then.

This is a truly awesome model, any chance you could adapt it for large pets too? This would be perfect for my wolves ❤️
