Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I've learned a bit more since the creation of my first mesh and decided to upload an improved version of my original Ashley Cataline Double Bed mesh. It has a higher polycount than the previous one but the mesh is smoother and the textures are less messy. It has the same GUID as the previous double bed mesh, so you will have to delete the old one and replace it with this one.
The headboard is rounded with raised trim and accents. The support for the mattress is a simple box with 2 cube-like feet. The feet match the trim and accent colors.
In addition to the base object which comes in onyx-gold (shiny black with gold trim and accents), it comes in lapis (blue marbled with black), malachite (green marbled with black), quartz (off-white marbled), and wood (sort of an orangey color). The backs of the headboards on all of the ones labelled gold 1 and silver 1 match the fronts of the headboards. The backs of the headboards on all of the ones labelled gold 2 and silver 2 are black.
I cloned this from a base Maxis bed so it should work with just the base game. If you experience any problems with this bed, please let me know.
Thanks to Teknofil for showing me how to mesh, to Fresh-Prince for patiently spending hours guiding me through and the object creation process and answering my questions, to HystericalParoxysm, Simaddict, LyricLee, JohnBrehaut, Lethe, Delphy, Star, Anna, Missangela, and everyone else at the sims2community chat who put up with my incessant questions (sorry for any names I left out), and to Monkeeleader for inspiration. I could not have done it without you folks! Thank you!
Recolors are welcome. I want people to enjoy this. You may upload this with lots. My only restriction is that I do not want any recolors being put in the pay section of any paysites.
Here are some of the other pieces of this furniture set:
Ashley Cataline Single Bed MESH and 11 recolors The single version of this bed based on the improved mesh.
Ashley Cataline End Table with Doors Based off of the nightstand from my real furniture set. Comes with 11 recolors.
Ashley Cataline End Table with Drawers A drawered version of the nightstand. 11 recolors.
Ashley Cataline Mirror Floor mirror that can be set behind objects without moveobjects cheat. Created to match the upcoming dresser. 11 recolors
Ashley Cataline Dresser MESH: a 3-tile wide dresser that doubles as a surface.
Ashley Cataline Armoire. 2 tile wide armoire that doubles as a surface.
Coming sometime in the future... Ashley 2-tile TV stand (as soon as I work out the kinks). You can see a preview here
I also recommend my Simbeam Animated Wall Clock based on the Sunbeam clock I have in my room.
