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.
Thank you for all of your warm feedback there some more little things for you to supplement maxis sets.


Here are the 3 Maxis popular beds I have not seen to be remodeled before.
Be sure you have original beds before installing them!
Medieval bed is not as rich as Maxis poster one so your poor sims now can afford it
It is not expensive.
All beds have decent comfort and sleep constants.
And They share textures with "parents" of course too.
(no shadows again sorry just miss that thing )


BONUS!

Cute nightstand with drawers to match desighner dresser in bedrooms, it has shadows and pull textures too. (as well as all my maxis match objects)

I've been downloading all your Maxis matching stuff! They're great! I was wondering if you'd make any 1-tile dressers that are of the same height (or as close as you can get it without looking funny) as the original ones. Maxis made some smaller versions (in later EPs) but they're still too big and take up 2-tiles. I especially like the Atomic Clothing Manager and Zero-G (GLS, I think) and the Werkbunnst Stonewood dresser.

How much is that? Equal to the parent bed?

Thanks for these; I especially like the table.

And thanks for paying attention to the comfort ratings. I often see people making gorgeous beds, sofas, dining chairs, etc. whose comfort rating is 3 or 4, and I wonder what they're thinking of. I actually *play* the game, and I don't care how beautiful something is, my sims don't want to sit on something that's only a 4.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes ONE :-) -- which you can find at http://corylea.com/Sims%201%20Mods%20by%20Corylea.html

gwillewyn Decent means good enough

Corylea as I cloned cheapest beds for them (to keep small size) I remember to boost rates
Hope they will work as I made them to
I have just encountered a shadow bug with mediev bed so if someone faced it too - I will post fixed version. Sorry.

Awesome, I love your Maxis matching stuff! It irks me how Maxis never completes a set, or the ones they do complete are horrid. Hehe.

And I agree w/daysies, I think one tile dressers would be super awesome.

I was playing with your sofa that matches the big stuffed recliner today and I really like it! Everyone has said it I see but I just want you to know that I also love all of your Maxis match stuff. One of my favorite sets is the Contessa stuff . I LOVE this night table too. I may be dense, but I don't understand what else is included in this dl- you know, the bed part. Can you explain it to a dummy, lol. ?Thanks!

Thanks Alias and Ciane.I now get it. I thought those were the Maxis beds, not realizing that these are different sizes of them. I like these beds so much more then the cheap ones so thank you!

I'm a bit confuse about the single zip & the doublebed2 Zip. Do you means that It is possible to create or recolor just the single bedding or double bedding by it own?

When I tried to recolor, it comes in both single & double.

BTW, I love yours beds. Thanks for sharing. :D

ding - single and double are referring to different beds pictured. The beds will pull the bedding textures from the files you already have.

cee - there are three different beds and a night stand - therefore, four files. You download just the one(s) you want.

alias - As always, I love having matching sets. Thank you.

You cannot recolor any of my maxis matching things as they are "slaves" to maxis "parents"
You should recolor "parents".

Cee you see three beds on pics so there are three separate zips. Any questions?

hi, these are great, but what i noticed is that they aren't that expensive and don't have very high comfort and energy stats. Would you be able to modify it so that it is more expensive with higher stats? It makes me feel like i earnt it!

Ailias you rock! Thanks!
Any idea on why the side table shows up in my game all blue? I have the dresser and the required expansion packs but I'm getting that blue 'you don't have the right texture' image. Dang!

deerparker It does not have the texture as it borrows the texture and MMATS from the dresser. You see you are first who faced the problem. Check it all out again. You see it works in my game.
