Snug as a Slug - *FUNCTIONAL* Sleeping Bag


I have slain the beast that is object tuning, and I bring you, a functional sleeping bag!!
Where to begin?? This is a functional sleeping bag for all your camping, sleepover, and squatting needs! The mesh is mostly custom made by me... the bones were tripping me up so there's some EA bed in there somewhere. Can be found in Comfort section, under beds, $80. I couldn't figure out how to make it buyable at the Camp Site Store, but if I do, I will update the file. Base game compatible. Searchable by "Pickypikachu" "Snug as a Slug" "Sleeping Bag". 5 swatches with some plain ass colors. Low poly, laptop friendly, has all LODs and shadows.

Features:
  • Inventory functionality, you sim can pick it up and place it in their inventory, then place it anywhere in the world
  • Usable by both children and adults
  • Adjusted sitting animations so your sim looks like they are sitting on the floor
  • True "roughin' it" style
  • Funky chicken leg motions sometimes during sitting
  • Clipping with the ground during the make bed animation





The only glitch is that while making the bed, the sim feet go through the floor, but they will snap back up as soon as they move


TOU specific for Snug Slug Sleeping Bag:
If you are interested in recoloring this bad boy, here is the recolor kit for your convenience. Please do not include the tuning or the rig, this can be done by placing a copy of my sleeping bag .package in your Documents/Sims 4 Studio/Mods folder and then choosing "Selective Clone", in the next window filter by "Custom" or type "SnugSlug" into the search bar. When the window pops up with check boxes, set them like so:
This will ensure that you have all the resources needed for recoloring, but no extra stuff that I would prefer not to be in the package. Please instruct your downloaders to come get the rest of the fixins' here. 
Thanks!

If you would like to use my sleeping bag as a base, or make modifications to it, please contact me!









Thank you to my beautiful PTS ladies who helped test this, gave me tutorials when I needed them and cheered me on!

  4. Oh wow, someone managed to figure out how to do this! I've been hoping for sleeping bags for so long, and these are beautiful! The only issue I'm having is that there's no option to place these in a sim's inventory and I can't drag them, either... Other than that, it's perfect.

    1. You must have the sim selected and then click on the sleeping bag, and "Put in Inventory" will be in the options. Similar to how camping gear works.
