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.

UPDATE:2:29PM (04/26/10) EST-Small Bedding Fix Please Redownload
I rotated the bedding map on the cribs and got rid of the folded part.

I saw BasketballGirl_35's "Nurseries to Match Maxis Bedding" set and at first I thought she had slaved the crib bedding to the "regular" bedding, but after reading I found out that it was a Maxis recolor. I was surprised to see that nobody has ever slaved the baby furniture to regular bedding, so I thought to myself: "Man, don't you realize how useful this would be if you made something like this," And so I did. Here is my "Inspiration":


Apartment Life Stripey Bedding.


All of the objects seen have been torn apart, what has been slaved to the "regular" bedding is:
-The cushion of the highchair
-The matted part of the changing table
-The basket liners of the changing table
-The crib's mattress.

Everything else is in its own slave. I.E. the crib will keep its original texture even though the fabric parts are slaved to the regular bedding.

Known Issues
You will probably have problems with the darn top of the diaper dispenser if you're nitpicky about things like that. I'm cosidering making a few recolors so that it will match better with everything. Another issue, it's bedding mapping on a few completely different objects. You'll run into issues with some bedding on the highchair, especially if the texture is, "complicated," or "stripey-ish" but a majority of the beddings work really well on the high chair and the other objects. I would reccomend looking at my "shopping list" for some reccomended items that look like they would work well with these new cribs and such so that your highchairs won't look wonked out with some of the textures.

HugeLunatic made a replacement that makes the mat and liners of the changing table pull the textures of the original crib. If you have this download do NOT download fway-MaxisBeddingOnCTable-DEFAULT.zip and download the custom version instead, OR remove HugeLunatic's default replacement and download fway-MaxisBeddingOnCTable-DEFAULT.zip. Both replacements won't work nice together.

But wait, there's more!
Even if you decide not to download the NON-default version of my cribs (or the default replacement bedding) it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you download my crib UV mapping fix (if there isn't one?). Ever notice that the front of your babies' cribs are the shade of whatever the original crib bedding is? That's because EA forgot to map the crib properly. For nearly 6 years this has gone unchanged.


Note: Only download fway-CribMapFix-DEFAULT.zip if you are NOT downloading fway-MaxisBeddingOnCribs-DEFAULT.zip.

Will there be a FreeTime version?
You betcha! I'm working on that.
I've fallen into the realm of the Sims 3.

"Shopping List" (recommended beddings)
Gingham Beddings by HugeLunatic.
Stripes Bedding (and more) by TwoHorses.
Bahamaut25 has some Teen Style "Surfer" recolors.
Kid's Bedding #1 #2 by Purplepaws.
A Bundle of Quilts by Autumnwish.

Bedding Defaults & Non-defaults by HystericalParoxysm.

If you decide to download HugeLunatic's "Gingham" bedding, I suggest downloading "The Gingham Rocking Horse" by CTherese.

For those who mesh, you may use the "bedding" group in the GMDC as a base if you need to. It does not belong on any paysite or the exchange, still. Credit would be appreciated, however, but not necessary.

This is awesome! :-) I love stuff that adds to the options for baby furniture - babies are kind of boring in game and it's nice if they at least have a pretty crib! :-) Going to go check it out in game now! :-D

I am not a coder, mesher, or any of that cool stuff, so when I come across a problem, I look to the Simming community, usually here. I have on occation thought "wouldn't it be cool if the baby beds could match the adult beds", but I never thought much more beyond that. This is pretty awesome. My sims are going to love this.

Ah right! It does not. You will need to download the non-default version of my cribs, then.

You are wonderful for doing this! I have hated that crib for so long for not being a solid white or a solid 'whatever' color I needed it to be. LOL!

I'm also grateful because sometimes I'm too lazy to go shopping for yet another nursery set, sometimes I just want to plop down the Maxis set and be done with it, but they never look good enough! The choice is not enough, or I need some other recolors...Now, they'll look good enough and everything will also match...save for the dispenser, which doesn't bother me.

THANK YOU sooo much!

It's a neighborhood legacy

Thanks so much for fixing the mapping on the Maxis crib and making the bedding match items in both default and non-default forms. I love repository objects, but sometimes you just can't get the right effect without doing an actual recolor.
