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.

PLEASE READ

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.

Hi! This object is absolutely perfect for mine and my boyfriend's sims! Thank you sooo much! But I do have one question... would it be possible to have a double bed version of this, with maybe the four-tiled trees as support instead? That way our two simmies would be able to snuggle... even with whoohoo and sleeping disabled it would still be a wonderful attention to our backyard. Thanks again!

Yes...it's very possable. I need a pic of a double hammock. I've never seen one, so someone give me a pic.

KevinsHope I think this is a nice creation! I am always looking for unusual items for my yard. Personally IRL I will never go in a hammoc again...cause it broke and the nylon ripped my whole back....but if ppl can get in and out of them right..they are so comfy. I am sure my simmys are going to love them!!!!!!

TY for your hard work and it will be treasured and is appreciated.

Blessings

Moonlit,

I assure you that your simmys will be quite safe in my hammock. No ripped nylon for them.

The invalid archive message is due to probably a server issue. Try downloading it again. If you get the same message, then you will be needing a download manager. A program of this kind will regulate your download so that it does not screw up. I downloaded and checked the zip. It is working fine. There is a download manager that is awsome called Free download manager. Look it up on the internet. If you use a download manger and get the same message, you may need to update to a more recent copy of WinZIP or something.

Sounds great! I can't wait to see it in-game.
