Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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.
Its been a while....But here I am, back again with an upload - and this time its NOT a window.
Have you ever noticed how CREEPY sims bookcases are if you line them up? All the books in the same place - even the same photos in the photoframe (in the same place)? Brrr.....creepy.
So I took MY favourite bookcases (IKEA Billy) and EMPTIED them. I added three slots per shelf, and then made a tall and a short version. So you can put items on the shelf the way you want to have them. See pic.
However, I kept the bookcase options, so the empty bookcase can still generate books magically as if from nowhere.....Hmm.
So I made some deco books. (Did I REALLY just empty this bookcase and fill it up again? I guess I did...duh). The books are DECO - they have no book case functions. However, they are sized to fit perfectly on the billy shelves - you can mix and match and move them about on the bookcase using the ctrl+m command.
There are six variations, all repo linked to the base game value books. Which are HIDEOUS. But have no fear - MTS to the rescue!!
Plasticbox did some AWESOME recolours of these books, and I recommend you go get 'em. I have them linked in the related tab and HERE
Some interesting notes on bookcases
Bookcases were updated in FreeTime. This update was additional menu options, defined in the OBJD. Its not possible to mark in the object two different menu options, so I have made TWO versions -
base game +IKEA
FreeTime or AL+IKEA.
If you just decorate and dont play - get the base versions. If you play and have FT or above - get the FT version. You can only have ONE - I used the same GUID for both...(lets not waste GUIDs people).
These bookcases have a little gap either side - filled by the BENNO CD rack. Or - see pic - You can position them next to each other with the "boolprop snapobjectstogrid false" cheat in combination with moveobjects on.
