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.
As requested by EveSims96.

I have applied the fix by Midge the Tree to the Upper Bunk and added the files.
Many thanks to Midge the Tree for the Mini-Tutorial For Fixing Michelle’s Bunk Beds.

1st in a series of Bunk Beds requested by EveSims96. Okay, so it is not quite bunk beds, it is upper bunk beds that can be added to the single beds to make bunk beds. I also made a Cheap Ezzzzzze Morrissey Single Bed. OOPS! I forgot to take screenshots with shadows on, sorry I will add them later.

ETA: celebkiriedhel has done a Storybook bunk bed, you can check it out HERE (Reply #25).

ETA: Many thanks to natboopsie for testing the bunk bed and sharing her results.
"Someone was asking in your other download thread, the one with the first bunk beds in this series, whether they would work with TwoJeff's Smart Beds. I'm writing in this one because I wanted to know the same, but I only had a chance to test the Simple Single you posted here.
I'm delighted to report that those DO work for me with Smart Beds, at least in the one house I tested it in.

I use Christianlov's terrific Sim Control II to send sims to bed; it's the best way I know of in game to assess which bed they pick when instructed to go and sleep. It's always sent them to their bed as assigned using Smart Beds, and now the bunk was no exception. The child who owned the top bunk always picked the top bunk. His teen brother who owned the bottom bunk (hey, it was a test; I know the teen would usually get the top, lol) always picked the bottom bunk.
At first, I did not think it worked, because everyone in the house, including those with Smart Bed--assigned beds elsewhere in the house, tried to pick that one new top bunk. But then I realized that was just my fault for not assigning anyone to the new bed, and as a non-owned one, that made it fair game for anyone. So I directed him by clicking on the bed (not using the SCII), then when he was up there, for good measure I used the Adjust>Bed Ownership>Own This Bed to make sure he knew he had the top one specifically.
And after that, all went smoothly. No one tried to sleep in that top bunk again except that child, and he picked the top bunk to sleep in every time.
Along with Smart Beds, I use TJ's Community Sleep Plugin for Smart Beds. Cyjon's Get off Your A** (he spells out that last word) is in that same folder as well, because it's the only other one of my hacks that conflicts with Smart Beds (per SimWardrobe's HCDU), so in case it's important to the results of my test, I use that too and load it after both of TJ's (which makes the three hacks work together fine, as far as I can tell)."

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Thank is for the info @natboopsie, I'll test them out in my game when I have the chance!
@xmathyx if you still want bunkbeds but still can't get these to work as Natboopsie suggested, I use these and they're compatible with smart beds: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?p=1530815

This is great!

From the screenshot, it looks as though these are cloned from the Trianon bunk bed. Do you know if they have the same flashing blue problem that the Trianon beds have? It occurs when the sim wakes up with a queued action. I would be very happy to have found a working alternative!

@elly87 - I often use these beds to create the scenario you want. The animations are a bit strange but I don't mind. http://www.drealm.info/simlogical/s...2_Shelfbeds.htm

@simsfreq Yes, as I stated in the description they are cloned from the Grand Trianon Bunk Bed, as is all my upper bunk beds. I have never had a flashing blue problem with any of the bunk bed I've made and have never used the Grand Trianon Bunk Bed for anything other than cloning from it. However I would be interested to hear if you do have that problem with my bunk beds.

I do have a flashing blue problem over here. It's easy enough to fix (just go to redesign it, click another color, then click the desired color) that I still really like them, but I would be interested if a fix was ever made.

Doesn't work for me, whenever I however over the object underneath it my sim errors out and I have to. However I do not think it's a problem with your creation I believe it's a problem with my hacks.

Hello Thanks for the upload.
I have a tiny problem with The Cheap Ezzzzzze Morrissey Upper Bunk bed - after using it by the Sim, it blinks black and blue. Could you please help me?

@Anastazja612 - I am sorry you are having a problem with the upper bunk bed, I have been testing the bunk beds for a couple of hours now, without a problem. Are you having the same problem with the other upper bunk beds?
You could try running the Hack Conflict Detection Utility to see if it is conflicting with something else in your game. If you do maybe read what natboopsie wrote HERE or maybe try what beafish123 suggested in post #33 above.

Yes I do the same, but I wonder if there is any other fix for this :P

Hi Michelle, just letting you know that Radium/Midgethetree has shared a tutorial for a fix for the bunk beds to prevent flashing blue & reset issues many of us have been facing. I don't know how to use SimPE and I don't understand the tutorial, but I just thought I would let you know just in case it is of any use to you.

@Fyren5 - Thanks for letting me know, I have followed the tutorial, however I have never had the flashing blue problem so I don't know if it works. Would you consider doing some testing for me please?

Hi Michelle...I have been testing your revised bunks. They seem to be partially fixed - tried both the Craftmeister Pine and the CheapEaze Morrissey so far.
Queuing interactions for when the sim gets up has been one of the triggers for flashing blue in the past. I didn't see any issue using the pine bed, but the Morrissey flashed blue when the sim autonomously climbed up to make the bed. I don't think that interaction was tried on the pine bed, so it likely has the same issue although I didn't see it.
Looks like there is still some fixing needed, but progress has been made!

Does anyone know where I can find the updated versions of these bunk beds (that have the SimPE fixes applied)? The files on MTS have never been updated since they were uploaded in 2016.

@Spiderses - sorry hun, I did not update the files because I was unsure if the fix worked, unfortunately I have never had the problem others have had with the bunk beds so it made testing by me redundant and I got mixed reports from other people testing them for me.

I am including them here, if you would like to test them your feedback would be much appreciated.

Oh, thank you! I tested out your fix, and the textures don't flash blue for me anymore. In my game, they were caused by queueing another interaction while a Sim was using the top bunk, and then cancelling the bunk interaction.
