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.
One thing I hate are the bed frames with their own "roof".. seriously, it blocks the the view of my sims and is extremely frustrating..well, to me it is. So, instead of not using the bed anymore, I figured I would just remove the idiotic bed frame "roof." And that's just what I did!

Requires the latest patch! Please make sure your game is updated before installing this!


You may notice in this picture that the simplified version is a bit darker. That is because I made the preset texture a little darker when creating it so it wouldn't give of such a bright glow like the original. You can, of course, change this in game by simply recoloring it.




Recolorable Channels:
1) Sheets and Fabric Portion of Bed Frame
2)Semi-Parts of the Bed Frame and Bed Posts
3) Mattress and Pillows
4) Parts Around the Bed Posts and Head Board


Found Under: Comfort and Bedroom
Price: Double Bed $5300 Single Bed $1650

Polygon Counts:
Double Bed 3097 Vertices, 2766 Faces
Single Bed 2640 Vertices, 2196 Faces

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.

Yay, I never use the beds with roofs, either. I'll bet you'll get a lot of thanks comments saying exactly that. Because beds with roofs suck. Thanks!

The only reason why I don't use these beds even though they have high energy value is because of this very reason. SO, thank you!

Peronally, I LOVE canopy beds, but this one, always seemed so heavy, and bulky. I rarely used it. Without that formidable-looking top, it is much more inviting! I love Federalist pieces. The American Colonial and Revolutionary period has long been my favorite historical era. Thank you very much for sharing this!

I loved this bed, but it doesn't work right in my game =(.

The second picture is what happened when I had them "relax". The first is when they were sleeping. When they woke up, they were stuck like that. They couldn't get out of bed, move, or do anything. They had things to do in their queues, but were stuck in the bed.
