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.

Maxis "Lost & Found" #25
'RACE CAR' KID BEDROOM SET
*For ANY GAME! GLS is NO MORE required!*


02 JAN 2007 - MAJOR UPDATE!
  • Since Maxis released this set on the Exchange, making it available for anyone (not only for GLS owners), I've completely rebuilt the entire set, making it usable in any game, including the base-game only. In other words, GLS IS NO LONGER REQUIRED!
  • The updated items include the "official" catalog descriptions recently provided by Maxis.
  • The Desk released by Maxis now has a drawer cabinet; I liked the no-cabinet desk, so I decided to release a special Desk version with an optional cabinet: you choose whether you want it or not! See animated screenshot below.
  • Unlike the "official" Maxis release, this set contains all the recolours for all the objects.
  • Base-game and pre-FFS users can finally have the rug, the small armoire and the small dresser!
  • Hopefully, this reworked set should solve any problem related to missing objects from the catalog; I've personally tested ALL the objects in my base-game (using the BaseGameStarter), and they all work perfectly.
  • Fixed a bug of the ToyBox: now your sims can correctly put away the toys and join other sims already playing; pre-FFS users need THIS GLOBAL FIX in order to make it work! Read the explanations and the game requirements in the said thread.

The file "MaxisLost_RaceCarSet_ALL-GAMES.rar" contains the entire set, that works in any game, including Pets. But the standard bed isn't usable by pets, so I provided a special PETS version of the bed in the file "MaxisLost_RaceCarSingleBed_PETS.rar". Use the Pets version only in a Pets game!

The new files have the same names and GUIDs of the older ones, so they will overwrite the previous versions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

02 OCT 2006: UPDATE - Some users couldn't see the Bed in the catalog. Download the new version to fix the problem (thanks DementedMom for testing). If you never had problems with the Bed, you don't need to redownload.

18 SEPT 2006: UPDATE - Some users couldn't see the End Table and the Toy Box in the catalog. Download the new version to fix the problem (thanks Xianah for testing).
Warning: the new End Table and the new Toy Box are not compatible with the previous versions: if you didn't have any problem, you don't need to re-download (if you do, your endtables and toyboxes will revert to other Maxis objects, and you have to sell and re-buy them)
18 SEPT 2006: UPDATE - The "Collection" file now includes also the new versions, and a *new themed icon*, too. Icon

11 SEPT 2006: FIX - No more flashing blue clothings in the armoire.
Thanks to Haveloc for having tracked down and fixed the bug.

05 SEPT 2006: FIX - Now all the items are correctly recolourable + Fixed flashing blue bed




This is probably the most sensational "Maxis Lost & Found" ever
Hidden in the Glamour Life Pack there was an entire "lost" set, composed by:
  • Single bed
  • End table
  • 2x1 rug
  • Desk
  • Chair
  • Small armoire
  • Small dresser
  • Wall-hanging flags
  • Table lamp
  • Toy box

The whole set is recolourable and comes in 4 colours (red, blue, purple and white); some items have an additional "chequered" recolour. Only the end table comes in only 1 colour (it's just a pile of tires... ); but anyway I managed to make it recolourable.

All these items require Glamour Life Stuff to work.

Installation: just extract the rar to your Downloads folder. For your convenience, I've prepared also a "Collection" to hold together all the 'Race Car' items. The "Collection" file must be extracted and put into your "Collection" folder, NOT in the Downloads!

CREDITS: all the meshes and textures are by Maxis; I've created the packages, rebuilding the missing items and fixing the existing files, so to make the objects buyable from the catalog.

Hey Numenor, I love this set. BTW I bought Double Deluxe and never have seen this set before, so I downloaded your version. However when my boys use the bed one night I can not click on it anymore. I can send the boy to bed one time and then there is no pop up coming up anymore.

Not sure what that is

Does it happen every time? I mean, even if you sell and re-buy the bed? Of course, when the kid wakes up, he has full energy, and no "sleep" interaction will be available...

Yes it happens all the time. I send him to bed one night all is fine, next night when energy is low and its time for sleep I can not send him to bed. Even if I buy a new bed over and over at one point I can just not use it anymore.

I'm sorry but I can't reproduce the problem; but I can't test a real Double Deluxe game, so I can't be sure that is something related to your game version.
Maybe you should get rid of this set and download Maxis version from the Exchange.

Well I have problem with the bed. After one use it becomes unfunctionable - no1 can sleep in the bed. I have to sell it and buy a new one. Moving around with buy mode doesn't help.

I have base-game only. No hacks and stuff. I love this set for my boy-ish gurlz twins, but it's almost impossible to rebuy the bed after every sleep.

Since then there were also some update by the developers, I think, because I think for me it comes with the seasons pack. When I didn't even know downloadable content exist, I had these furniture and I didn't even had GLS! It was in 2009-2010-ish..
