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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Hi all,

These are a hammock that is designed to sit between two Birch tree saplings and a free standing frame supported hammock. If the trees are facing the right direction, the ropes of the hammock will look like they are tied around the trees. If the ropes don't line up, play with the direction that the tree is facing. These have been tested with the base game and are working. Please report any bugs that you encounter. Encluded in the zip are the hammock with a frame and the hammock that is suspended between two trees (trees not encluded). Each hammock encludes a pillow that uses the textures for the pillows in game, so you can choose whatever color pillow you want, just in case you are color coordinating your yard LOL. I hope you all like them.

*Note* Due to issues with the sleep animation for beds, I had to disable the sleep mode. I may update this with a nap option later, if I learn how to associate that action with an object cloned from a bed.

Face Count = Suspended hamock 1510 (about 500 per square)
Framed hamock 1635 (about 530 per square)

Please do not repost or recolor this object without my permission

If you like this object, please take a moment to say thanks and leave a comment. I enjoy your feedback.

Just wondering, can your sims sleep on this? I know it's probably a stupid question but seems so realistic...

nahh aye?
I dont believe the sims can sleep on this because in buy mode it has been placed in dining chairs. If they could they would be sleeping outside between two trees hehe.

I had to disable the sleep mode due to the sims looking like contortionists when they were sleeping on it. You'd be surprised at what the blankets cover up on a sim. Anyway, I'm going to explore adding the nap option from living room furnature, but I don't know how possible that is.
