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.
I love the new crib that plasticbox made, the Little Sister crib because I love simple furniture and don't like large canopies, either on cribs or on beds. On a whim I changed some stuff in the package and to my surprise things worked mostly ok so I decided to make a separate mesh and package for a one tile crib. This one will work in the game with plasticbox's, there isn't any conflicts. You can get the original two tile version by plasticbox here.


I've used v2 by plasticbox because the object now has four useful channels and the mapping on the ruffle makes more sense now than the original EA one.

Channels
  • Frame
  • Slats
  • Mattress
  • Ruffle


Basics
  • Found in Nursery/Cribs
  • Costs §280
  • Has all the same presets/Environment Scores/Stats as EA one


Known Issues
The footprint has been adjusted but at this time slots are uneditable. So to accommodate for not being able to move the entry points for placing child in crib as well as where the child sleeps in the crib, I moved the mesh itself slightly off center. Otherwise your poor toddler sim would be decapitated. The dark wood shows where the actual footprint of the crib is and you can see the crib sits off center. The second side effect of uneditable slots is the entry point, the adult sims slightly clips the corner post, the toddler however will stand in the crib and not clip the end post.





Made with Base Game 1.6.6 but I cloned plasticbox's which is made with Base Game 1.8, so if you have at least one patch for the Base Game it should work fine. You can get the original two tile version by plasticbox here.


Polygon Counts:
692/292

Additional Credits:
Major thanks to plasticbox for the use of the mesh for my mad experiments. The generous usage policy allowed me to just take the already redone mesh and just delete and move some pixels around.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is probably a stupid question, but do these cute mini cribs work the same as the original ones in the game when placed in homes that you're not playing? (Meaning will placing a couple of these in a house and moving a couple in there encourage the creation of baby sims like the regular cribs do)

Ryuchan - I had no idea that cribs in homes did that anyway, but since it was cloned from an EA crib I would have to guess that it would.

Ah, I don't know what is said about cribs officially, it is just that in my game so far whenever I've equipped a house with a bunch of cribs (and of course a couple of beds for the kids as they grow older) and move a married couple in, well, when I've checked on that household after a while it has been swarming with kids. I just assumed this was why, but I could be wrong.
Either way, thanks for this. It'll definitely end up in my sims' home.


Edit: No Awesomemod or anything else that will alter storymode in any way I'm afraid... just the base game with a few little tweaks like TestingCheats.

Are you playing with Awesome Mod, and have Awesome Story Mode enabled? Because with Awesome Story mode, only families that have cribs will have kids.


This is awesome HL, and great for tiny houses. Thanks! :D

The original little sister crib does spawn babies in inactive homes, at least in my game. So I'd assume this would as well

Thank you HugeLunatic! No more wall to wall cribs in nurseries for me!
