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.
Have you started hating on EA's current pet beds and you ever wonder why they don't work well with your modern-y interior?... Neither have I! But, because I didn't like EA's pillow pet beds as much these days after all these years I figured 'hey let's make some new ones!'.
After a month of meshing my butt off and having my brain not to make more props, I am finally releasing these pet beds!

The cool techy bits that no one cares about!

First of all it needs Pets to work The blankets and the rugs would show up as they are base game compatible, but the pet beds won't if you don't have pets installed! It's also made with patch 1.67 if curious.
The rugs can be used as... well rugs! And the cool bit is, is the fact that they snap onto the pet bed!:



See! Snapidy snap snap! :D

Unfortunately the blankets don't do this. However, you do need to use the cheat 'moveobjects on' in order to get them onto the bed.

Unfortunately there was one thing I couldn't fix which is the fact that the dog will bleed through the pet bed when getting on, yet does snap onto the right height when laying down. So the dog only will look a bit off when stepping on/off the pet bed! The reason is that if I were to make a fix for this, it would automatically replace the original pet bed animations as well :/

Everything is hand drawn (and Blender baked) except for the cow hide. I got that from the internet though (See Texture Credits) The other rug is a conversion from ts4.

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.

Thank you so much for these, they're lovely! Most of my houses have a bit of a mid-century style, so these will allow them to have pets with matching furniture
