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.
Moses Basket:

A traditional and simple design, variations of this basic form have been used for ages as an infant's first bed. The small size means it can fit just about anywhere with ease. Little babies sleep well in moses baskets - often better than in a larger crib due to the enclosed feeling being comforting and cozy.


Features:
  • Infant-only. Moses baskets are not suitable for toddlers, and thus sims cannot put toddlers in the basket. You will need to get a separate full-size crib for your kidlets once they become toddlers.
  • Interchangeable beddings and frame colours. Use any bedding with any frame/basket colour. Beddings come in cream, white, pink, blue, green, and yellow. Frames/baskets come in white, grey, light, medium, dark, and black wood tones.
  • Lower price than Maxis cribs.
  • Suitable for sims from most any era - contemporary, medieval, renaissance, etc. can all use it and it will be appropriate for their homes.


Thanks to:
  • Echo, for telling me how to make it infant-only.
  • Lethe and Phae, for object meshing advice.
  • Quaxi, and everyone who has contributed to the development of SimPE.
  • Delphy and the rest of the MTS2 staff, for giving me a great place to learn how to make pretty things for pixel dollies.

Thank you so much! I've been looking for something like this for so long, I'd all but given up!

I'd found all sorts of other cribs and moses baskets to go on the floor, but I just wanted a simple moses basket on a stand. So you've answered my prayers, thanks HP!

this is the best. I hate hsving my sims travel all over the house with the babies, now we can put this in the living or family room and the baby is within a few feet of mommy and daddy!
Great idea!
Thanks!

suzymarie - I tested it and it was working fine for me... Don Lothario had a lovely baby girl and put her in it on numerous occasions as I was testing and re-testing. Did you buy the basket (or try to use it) right after the sim was giving birth? I was unable to click on the basket to do anything with it right as the sim gave birth but after the give birth action finished, it worked okay. Otherwise, can you give me a little more info to try to track it down, such as what expansion packs you have, and whether you've tried it with no other custom content whatsoever?

So, how I understand it, it can be used only immediately after birth. I've been using the 'Far From Perfect' infant bed which acts differently, you can use it anytime, sorry, didn't see anything written in the description that said that. Should it be placed in the house before she gives birth too then, so it activates?

edit: I just tried it the way you described, but still no result. New family, new baby, and she put the baby on the floor instead of the crib when I made the baby tired. Don't know what to do next.

suzymarie - It can be used right after birth - you just have to wait till the actual birthing action finishes before the sim giving birth can interact with the basket. I mentioned it as in my testing, I bought the basket right as the sim had given birth, before the action finished and when I flipped back and tried to interact with the basket, still paused, it was unclickable. Had to wait till the birth action dropped from the queue before it'd work. But it sounds like you're having a different issue. Can you try it with no other custom content in temporarily, just to test? And if that doesn't work, let me know which EPs you have so I can test the same setup with the AnyGameStarter.

If anyone else is having similar troubles please let me know. Not sure why this would occur (or when I'll have time to fix it) but I'll try to track it down if it;s a problem on my end.

I have alot of custom content to remove. I have up to FreeTime EP. I did try to interact after birth, but still could not use it. I did wait. Isn't there any way to use the same properties as the 'Far From Perfect' infant crib into this one? That crib allows only the infant to be placed in it without choosing who to put in it. I really like the style of your bed and will keep up with your thread here to see if you can come up with an updated version, thank you.

I am also unable to use it, not sure if it's a conflict or what the deal is. I am unable to select it or have my sims put a baby in it at all. I have all expansion & stuff packs through AL. I love this basket, so I will check back, too. I have a *ton* of custom content, so the prob may be with something in there & not specifically this item, just really dunno, haven't had this problem with any other cribs. Great job on it anyways, it looks great, & I hope it will work for me soon.

Sometimes my Sims will use the basket, other times they won't. It seems that if I buy it too soon after the baby is born, it's not clickable.

My Sims used it for their most recent baby, but they didn't like to actually put the baby in it themselves. They ended up standing around, passing the baby like a hot potato until I told them to put it in the basket. They eventually got the idea (weird!) and started doing it on their own.

But the nanny does not like this object. The first thing she did when she arrived was take the baby out and put her on the floor!

Thank you soo much, but every time I have a kid, I put them in it, they become a toddler, and my sims have another kid, and the infant can't go in the Basket! Always on my 2nd kid it makes them not be able to go in it.

Mkay, well, I will look into the issues as soon as I can. However, I just had a baby myself (a real one - this is based on his real moses basket - his is the dark wood and cream version) so I haven't been on my gaming PC since then, and I'm much more concerned with taking care of my new little bundle of joy than worrying about pixel dollies right now. Thus, it may be a while before I have the time and inclination to do troubleshooting. Apologies for any troubles ya'll might be having - I'm much more experienced with the sim content than objects so my objects tend to have a few hiccups at first.
