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.

FreeTime has this wonderful wall hanging quilt that looked just like one of the many blankets that my own kids would nap on. So I thought I just need to take this off the wall and put it on the floor for toddlers to use. The FreeTime version takes its textures from the Quilted Wallhanging, the base game version has the texture included and the Bedding version takes its colors from all Maxis and custom Crib Beddings and is base game compatible. I mapped it specifically to take advantage of the Maxis bumper pads, custom ones may/may not look as good since it will depend on whether the bedding also has the quilted bumper pads.

There are three versions:
  • FreeTime - Requires FT and takes textures from Quilted Wallhanging
  • Base - Base game includes textures
  • Bedding Match - Takes all colors from Maxis & Custom Crib Bedding

FreeTime and Base Game version:

Bedding Version:

The blanket takes up roughly the 2x2 tile space as the original wall hanging, but the actual footprint is 1x2. The edge of the blanket will cut through walls and go under furniture since the whole outside edge isn't technically considered part of the object by the game.

The FT and Base game ones have the same set of GUIDs, please only have one of those! But the Bedding Match has different GUIDs so it can be in the game at the same time as either of the other ones.

Polygon Counts:
Blanket - 368

Additional Credits:
Atavera for the original toddler blanket.
Rebecca for all the modified toddler objects that I study. =)

Oh, awesome! Atavera's was starting to glitch for me, so this is great. And cute, too! Is the energy gain level 12, like the cribs?

I love this. I love the idea of it taking the texture from the bedding to match.
#5 Old 6th May 2009 at 6:03 PM
Thank you. Atavera`s was good, but yours adds variety.

Speaking of which, an idea/suggestion: A version that takes textures from standard bedding? Or perhaps two: One that uses the pillow texture, and one that uses the blanket texture?

Tried it. Looked like crap. Plus there was no logical way to map the quilt binding that gave it depth.

Hot damn, this is great! Very practical, and the adorable quilt looks even more realistic than the original toddler blanket. Not to mention the fact that I quilt baby blankets just like these! Love 'em, thanks a million.

Thanks so much for this! My little sister often naps on a blanket on the floor in the sitting room, and my sims can too now :D

Thank you! I find it a great help that now toddlers can go to sleep by themselves, instead of having to be put to bed by an adult.

A humble suggestion: If you'd like to make your post more idiot-proof, maybe you could emphasize that the base game version is, indeed, BASE GAME ONLY. I have base game + Nightlife, but thought the base game version was for everyone who didn't have Freetime. So I downloaded it and my game kept freezing when I went to buy baby stuff - and it took me a whole afternoon to figure out why *facepalm*

Looks really great. I downloaded the freetime version but got a question. Do the sims actually have to have the skills do do a quilt? I am trying for quite a wile but never got a sim to reach at least one talent badge. *shame* The most advanced one got around 34 potholders at the moment and no talent badge.

Who ever finds a typing misstake could keep it - nobody is perfect.
And sorry, my English is not perfect. As I am German, I try as good as I could.

This has nothing to do with any skills in FT. It is simply a toddler bed blanket where they can put themselves to sleep. Find it in the Misc/Children for around $350.

I am looking into the crash of the base game one, my game appears to be farked up good right now. I have disappearing objects...
