So, you are probably saying to yourself this has been done before, right?
What makes my mattresses and bed frames different is they clip into place and do not lack footprints. So no more accidently placing them through each other or a wall. Sims won’t walk through them either. The frames still have their original yet modified tuning files so cats will still scratch both the mattresses and bed frames. I do not own all the game packs so I’m not sure what other options should be included and may have removed those. I also took the painstaking time to remove shadows from the mattress and bed frame so that down the road when I finish doing this to all the beds, they can clip onto bedframes that don’t have footboards without looking off. The mattress and bedframe have a 40/60 split in price. I took the total cost of the bed and applied 60% of the total to the bedframe and 40% of the total to the mattress. I will fix and reupload my mod if I notice issues in my game or if you guys bring things up to me in the comments section. Will I redo all the mattress and bed frames? I would like to but like I said do not own all the packs unfortunately. Will I do the packs I have? Yes. However, I am not sure how quickly. I have several package versions included in this download. See my additional notes below for more detailed information. As always, thank you for your download.
I have included:
1. The original plain separated items named as;
2. My items with modified shadows named as;
3. Items with both the modified shadows and originals named as;
4. Hider package for the original game object named as,
Why the different versions? Well, everyone is different. If you are like me, you have an attention to detail, and certain things will bother you. Items do cast shadows within the game even if they aren’t on the texture swatches. However, they aren’t as deep. So, on bed frames that have footboards and headboards they add that extra detail in the swatch. This added shadow looks off on bed frames that lack a headboard and/or a footboard. They do add somewhat more depth to objects with headboards and footboards so when paired with certain bed frames, they look better then without. The Utopiate bed frame and the Dirty Double box spring are the best examples where these shadows look off. So, I took the painstaking time to remove those shadows from swatches in order to make the mattresses compatible with other bedframes as seen my photos. I used a separated box spring from a different bed to show case an original swatch next to my swatch. This way you can see the difference in shading. Regarding the bed frames, I changed the mattress scores for the bed frames to the environment score equivalent. Bedframes can be ornate, and I felt this adds realism to gameplay. I adjusted the tuning files of the bed frames so cats can still scratch and hop on them. The current bed frames out their lack that option, lack footprints, and don’t snap in place. Although I find the modders that originally separated these items amazing, I wanted to take what they did to the next level. Now your sim won’t walk through it. You can move the items around like a table and chairs, instead of moving each on its own. As far as frame shadows go, I took the time to modify its swatches because at some point I want to make bed frames usable for sitting as well as napping. Which is why I want the frames to look good on their own. If you like CC but want the realism and shadow options for different frames you will opt to only keep the items with both swatch versions in one package. If you don’t care and just want the new option of mattresses clipping onto bedframes, you’ll keep the originals. If you do care about details somewhat and want that little added bonus of not having shadows where they shouldn’t be you will keep the modified versions. I included all the options in this download, so the choice is yours.
