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.

A small add on set of Medieval furniture to match the UNI set. This set is almost entirely slaved to the Medieval set that came with UNI. The only exception is the small quill and ink cup deco item.


Double Bed - takes all colors from the single bed


Study
  • Desk - slaved to the Modest Medieval End Table
  • Candle - slaved to the Flickering Mercenary Table Lamp
  • Quill & Ink well


Dining
  • Table - slaved to Modest End Table
  • Arm Chair - slaved to Magnificently Medieval Living Chair
  • Chandelier - slaved to Flickering Mercenary Table Lamp


The dining table is a bit wider than normal, but still within 2-tiles. This is so they can overlap slightly with the M&G cheat giving the illusion of a much larger length table. The chair is oversized compared to other dining chairs, but the larger chairs at the head of the table tend to be a bit larger.

The hanging chandelier is a fake 2-story. It sits very high for the current level with the hanging rod in the second story. It was designed to give the light in the current room but appear to be taller. It is kind of higher poly, but since you will only have one in a room it's not too terribly bad.

Please Note: There are two versions of the Dining Chair. Please keep the Pets one if you have Pets and the UNI one if you don't. Do NOT keep both as they have the same GUID!!

Double Bed - 1190 (frame)
Dining Chair - 1524
Dining Table - 1469
Hanging Candle Lamp - 2550

The original EA pieces are much more useful when paired with your completer set. Thanks so much. I could build a Bavarian castle hotel for the Three Lakes vacation zone with this stuff!

Thanks so much, HugeLunatic.
It's sets like these that make the maxis sets useful.

HL, I downloaded your set when you posted it at another site; I tried it out without the pets version of the set, and it crashed my game.
I downloaded this again from this site, took out the pets version, and it still crashed my game.
I'd love to have this, but there's something in it that is not agreeing with my game-Uni and NL.
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

Thanks Fran, I bet I forgot to do a non-pets version of the bed...I'll check into that.

Ok, the bed did require Pets. Sorry about that. I've uploaded the new bed files, it includes one for uni and one for pets. Please let me know if this one works for you. I think it will.

I was able to get it all to load but the bed for some reason it would crash me to the desktop every time ..I have Orig,NL,OFB,INI and FFS But I do thank ya for the items that did load...


EDIT: Re-downloaded the "fixed" dbl bed , game loaded and ran just fine.
They say "The devil is in the details" ,and you seem to have run him

HL: I've done a very thorough check of all the items in the download-without my own downloads, singly and separate. (I re-downloaded the new file).
I've found that the chair is the culprit in my game-even the Uni version. Without it, my game loads fine. Everything else is good, including the bed.

Took a few minutes to do this, but I thought this set is great enough to find the problem for my game..and I do have chairs that are alike to those you have in the download. Thanks for the creations!

Thank you Fran for testing. I am glad the bed works, I will go double check the chair then and hopefully get a non-pets version working. And yes someone else did these before but I wasn't happy with the stretching and squishing so I had to make my own.

I've updated the dining set now. I sure hope I got it right this time! LOL

The last two files, MedievalDining and MedievalStudy, are apparently .RAR archives even though they're labeled as .ZIP files. I was able to extract the files with WinRAR, but if I try to open them with Windows Compressed (zipped) Folders it says they're corrupt.
