You need bunk beds. Yes. You really do. Everyone needs bunk beds. Edit: There is something wrong with the non-shiftable Kinder Kontainer Bed. I'm working on it.

I got this idea from the brilliant and talented Ja. She made some very versatile bunk beds using Inje's shelf beds (Inje is brilliant and talented too!). They were super cool, except I don't play a grungy game. They just didn't match my aesthetic. I cloned most of these objects from Ja's because it's a heck of a lot easier to clone a slaved object than to slave it from scratch. Some credit also goes to alias and lin@shinysims, I used their single beds as bases.

Onto the good stuff!

Kinder Kontainer Bed. Based on and slaved to the cheap BG crib. Made by me: non-shiftable bed with wheels, posts, and shiftable bed.

Craftmeister Pine Bed. Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

Courtly Sleeper Day Dreamer. Original by lin@shinysims. I've included her mesh. Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

Zenu Meditaion bed. To be honest this isn't the best conversion, and the mapping on the single bed that I used is a bit off. I figure, its passable enough for a bed I don't love. Original by lin@shinysims. I've included her mesh. Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

Caress of Teak. Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

Touch of Teak. This one is a little strange too, but it has to do with the way the shadows fall in the source textures. Works okay as a bunk, not so well as a loft. Original by lin@shinysims. I've included her mesh. Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

#4234. Original by alias. I've included her mesh. Made by me: weird flat panel/post thing and shiftable bed.

Soma. I could not find a single bed version of this bed! So I made one. Made by me: a non-shiftable bed, posts and a shiftable bed.

Bed by St. Ajoque Reproductions. This one doesn't really work as a bunk bed, the posts are too close togther and the shape is all wrong. Makes a nice enough loft though! Made by me: posts and shiftable bed.

Since making these I have become obsessed with reordering my catalogs by manipulating the prices of objects. Now all my single beds are less than 1000 simoleons, and all the double beds more than 1000. Tidy! If you want beds modded this way, download the link below.
DOWNLOAD with modded prices!
Hopefully I will be making more of these at some point. Some of the beds in latter EPs are pretty great. It may be a while though, these were a huge PITA. Not so much making them but figuring out why my glitchy game didn't like them (If they don't show up try deleting your thumbnails). Anyhow, I hope you enjoy them!

Hi Jane, I'm Jane. :P [/lame]

Okay, so a month and half later and I have used these without problems.

Until tonight. I'd been playing the Broke household and I'd been noticing a lot of jump/resetting. Eventually this annoyed me enough to make me turn on boolprop. I hadn't sold the Kinder Kontainer (the one that's already in the hall of that household), but I had bought one of the toddler blankets for Beau, so I'd had no need for it until Brandi had another baby.

It appears that your Kinder Kontainer single bed has replaced the Kinder Kontainer. When I clicked on the crib, Brandi was getting options to "sleep" rather than "put baby in crib", followed by a "too many iterations" error message. So I grabbed the eyedropper and copied the crib - it showed up as your kinder kontainer bed. Also, the kinder kontainer crib is nowhere to be found in my buy mode catalog.

I see no one else has reported errors like this, so the problem *may* not be with your bed (I haven't done any extensive testing, nor experienced any crashing). I just thought I'd let you know.

Re: Problem. :P

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Dreamwidth didn't inbox me when you replied to my comment. :/ BAD DREAMWIDTH!

I downloaded and tested the fixed bed and everything is working now. Thanks so much!

Caress of Teak as a bunk bead!!! I can now delete a whole folder of bunks I was never happy with in the first place. Thank you!

Not working?

For some reason, these keep crashing my game when I reach the first blue screen (with the words scrolling along bottom). Same thing happened when I tried to download the orignal shelf bed from inge. Anyone know how to fix this/why it's happening?

I've thought of doing that but I can't bear the thought of having to put it all back on my Sims once I've removed it! Maybe I'll take a look at Paladin's Hack Conflict, I've never used it before and maybe it has the answer I'm looking for... I hope so, because I really really want these bunk beds, they're totally some of the best out there! As you're so awesome and quick at replying, I have one more question; when the Sims sleep on the top bunk, do they pop out the covers like they do on other bunk beds? ;P

Hi it's me again ;) I did as I was told and tested the bunks with no other CC. Same result, if not worse; this time the computer froze, whereas previously it just terminated. Strange thing is also when the Kinder Kontainer bed was borked, it worked, albeit wrongly (it replaced the crib in my game too), but once fixed it did the same as the others! So I have no clue! Oh well, thanks for making these and giving me a piece of valuable advice :(
