Beds are objects in The Sims that increase a Sim's energy and comfort, and decreases their stress[TS3]. Both single and double beds can be found in buy mode under "Bedroom" or "Comfort". Cribs serve the same purpose for babies and toddlers in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. In The Sims 4, babies use a bassinet and toddlers use special toddler beds. They can be found under "Kids". Single beds will only fit one Sim, while a double bed can fit two, but the two Sims will only sleep together if they have a good relationship. Kids will sleep together regardless, although they will not sleep together if one or the other is in their undies.[TS2]

PriceEdit

Beds come in a range of prices from cheap to expensive. In general, more expensive beds do a better job of restoring energy and comfort. Also in The Sims 3 and The Sims 4, sleeping in cheap beds will sometimes give Sims negative moodlets when they wake up.

In The Sims Life Stories, there is a §9,000 bed that is only unlocked in story rewards for Riley. This bed is called the "Fertillinator", and will increase the chance of success when trying for a baby.

InteractionsEdit

Sims can be directed to sleep in a bed when their energy motive is below 50%[n 1], and will autonomously sleep in one if they are very tired. Sims will autonomously choose to sleep in the bed that belongs to them,[TS2][TS3][TS4] or the nearest bed to them if no other options are available. In The Sims 2, players can choose whether Sims will sleep in their undies or in their PJs; in other games, they will always sleep in their PJs. The Sims 3 allows Sims to nap in beds, which is similar to napping on couches and recliners.

In The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, Sims can relax on beds, and will often do so autonomously to fulfill their comfort motive. In The Sims 2, Sims can choose to daydream or read a book while relaxing on a bed, and can watch TV if one is in the same room. If the bed is a double bed, they will socialize with any Sim relaxing in the same or different beds, and is a prerequisite for romantic interactions like WooHoo.[TS2][TS3] Although the interaction does not exist in the same capacity in The Sims 4, a similar equivalent allows Sims to sit on the edge of the bed. In The Sims 2, Sims must cancel the interaction and get out of bed before they can sleep in it, unless they had WooHoo, where they will usually go to sleep immediately afterwards. In The Sims 3, Sims relaxing on a bed do not need to get out of it to go to sleep or vice versa.

Beds are considered to be "owned" by a Sim in The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 when they are the first Sim to sleep in it after purchase. Sims will usually autonomously choose to sleep in that bed when tired, or will often run to that bed when they witness one of their parents fighting.[TS2] Sims have sometimes been known to "forget" which bed belonged to them.[n 2] In The Sims 3: University Life, the player can manually choose which bed belongs to which Sim; this feature comes in handy with dormitories, as it will prevent other Sims from sleeping in a Sim's bed.

In The Sims 2, playful Sims and children can jump on beds for fun.

In The Sims 3: Supernatural, children can check for monsters under a bed during nighttime. There's a 60% chance that they will see glowing red eyes or a monster's arms sticking out, which will give them "Monsters Under the Bed" moodlet, and possibly "Terrified" moodlet, which is more likely to be gained if Sims have the coward, neurotic, easily impressed, or supernatural skeptic traits. While having the "Monsters Under the Bed" moodlet, children will not sleep on the bed the monster is from. Children will not get the moodlet if they have the "Someone to Watch Over Me" moodlet, which is gained by being promised protection by older Sims who are on the same lot. On the other hand, if the children don't find any monsters under the bed, they will get "No Monsters" moodlet, which will boost their energy need while sleeping.

Monsters return to The Sims 4 with Patch 36, in which they will spontaneously wake children up, giving them an uncomfortable moodlet that prevents them from sleeping for a while. They can be warded off by spraying monster repellent or installing the "Defender" lamp in the room. Sims may also attempt to befriend the monster.

Starting with The Sims 2, Sims of all ages can experience nightmares. In The Sims 4, however, only toddlers can experience them.

Bed typesEdit

Single bedsEdit

Single beds are one of the two main types of beds in The Sims series. One single bed has a size of 1x3 and will only fit one Sim.

Double bedsEdit

Double beds are the second main type of bed in The Sims series. A double bed can fit two Sims, but they will only sleep together if they have a good relationship. Kids will sleep together regardless, although they will not sleep together if one or the other is in their undies.[TS2]

Bunk bedsEdit

Bunk beds are a type of bed in which two single beds are stacked on top of another, allowing for the beds to occupy the floor space usually required by just one. They can usually only be used by children. The Sims Online was the first game overall to feature bunk beds, but The Sims 3: Generations is the first expansion in the main series to include them. Sometimes, Sims who wake up in the top bunk can be very daring and jump off.

Loft bedsEdit

These function similarly to bunk beds, but are vacant at the bottom, allowing room for furniture or other objects.

Murphy bedsEdit

Main article: Murphy bed


Murphy beds are a type of bed introduced in The Sims 2: Apartment Life and reintroduced in The Sims 3: University Life. They fold into the wall to save space and unlike double beds, Murphy beds take a 2x4 size, with the extra space to folds the bed.

However, unlike real-life Murphy beds, the space used by an opened bed is still considered to be in use when the bed is closed. While Sims are able to walk through that space, objects cannot be placed in that space without using the moveobjects cheat.

Special bedsEdit

FertillinatorEdit

In The Sims Life Stories, there is a §9,000 bed that is only unlocked in story rewards for Riley. This bed is called the "Fertillinator", and will increase the chance of success when trying for a baby.

CoffinsEdit

Vampires can sleep in regular beds, although they can also opt to sleep in a coffin, which will protect them from sunlight during the day and replenish their motives better. Coffins exist in The Sims 2: Nightlife, The Sims 3: Late Night, and The Sims 4: Vampires. These coffins can only be used by vampires, although normal Sims can choose to sneak on a vampire coffin.

Vampires will receive the "Slept Like the Dead" moodlet from using a coffin.[TS3]

Hover bedsEdit

The Sims 3: Generations added a hover bed as a lifetime reward. It is a floating double bed which gives Sims a Gently Floating (+10) moodlet while they sleep in it.

The Sims 4: Get Famous introduced a sleeping pod, which can float like a hover bed. However, it functions more like a dream pod than a hover bed.

Dream podsEdit

DreamPod

A dream pod.

The Sims 3: Into the Future added a special type of bed, called a dream pod. Unlike other beds, a dream pod can change a Sim's life by providing a unique dream, which grants the Sim special effects when they wake up.

NotesEdit

  1. In The Sims and The Sims 2, how low a Sim's energy motive needs to be depends on the Sim's Lazy/Active score, though it will not be below 50%.
  2. There is a mod available for The Sims 2 at modthesims.info, which resolves the issue for players that had encountered it
