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 MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

A collection of low-budget furniture, all made from wooden crates. All items are compatabile with the base game alone, or with any and all expansion packs. The crate labels are from images of actual antique packing crate labels, found on crate label collector sites. Not all color options are shown

The bookshelf functions like any standard bookshelf, but it doesn't have the University study options. If you have University, the version with the study options is here:

The end table is two more crates stacked up - includes color options with and without the cans.

The Coffee Table is an old glass tabletop resting on two more crates.

The TV stand is the standard Maxis TV set with an old crate used as the stand.

The desk is made from a couple of crates, some cinder blocks, and an old door.

The dresser is two crates filled with clothes and shoes. There is no "open dresser" animation, your Sims will simply walk to the dresser, spin, and change clothes.


All these items may be recolored/re-skinned.
You can use and alter my alphas and bumpmaps as you wish - no credit needed.

Please put some effort into it, don't just flood-fill or adjust the hue of the whole image, there are many good tutorials here that will show you how to make something you can be proud of.

If you are posting your work here, link to the thread so people can get the mesh.

If you are posting on the Exchange, you should also link to the thread since meshes do not always package up properly in complete Sims and Lots.

If you are posting them on your own site you can offer my mesh for download on your site too. Credit for the mesh is appreciated but not required.

If you are altering the mesh for any reason, please take the trouble to do it correctly - change the filename, use fix integrety, and re-link it to your own color .packages.

You can use all my items in your lots, screenshots, stories, movies, and complete Sims - no credits necessary, just have fun with them.


To make this perfectly clear, what I am saying is that you can do whatever you want with my items, and post them anywhere you like. That includes free sites, the Exchange, paysites, and donator-only areas.

I just ask that you take the trouble to do it correctly so your stuff doesn't interfere with anyone else's.

Polygon Counts:
Bookshelf = 1316
Coffee Table = 382
Desk = 1006
Dresser = 1058
End Table = 1488
TV and Stand = 976
