Top Shelf Nectar Rack
Updated: 1st Sep 2016 at 8:16 PM - Formatting
This mod turns EA's Top Shelf Bar Shelving decorative sculpture into a functional nectar rack. Changes are as follows:
- Top Shelf Bar Shelving now functions as an expensive nectar rack.
- New geometry has been added to the original EA mesh in order to support geostates, such that the model varies to reflect the fullness of the rack, like EA's nectar racks.
- Seven decorative slots have been added.
- A new colour channel has been added so that the decorative trim on the front panels can be CASted separately.
- The three default presets have been revamped. Presets 2 and 3 also feature new overlays for the bottles on the shelves and the paper on the mirror.
This is not a default replacement. It is priced at 1000 simoleons and can be found in the following categories:
- Sort by Function -> Storage -> Misc.
- Sort by Function -> Surfaces -> Cabinets
Low LOD: 1296
High LOD: 3784
The game allows one nectar rack to be stacked on top of another. This mod uses the game's nectar rack script, so it is also possible to stack the Top Shelf Nectar Rack, despite its large size. This behaviour cannot be changed without creating a custom class. However, it is a minor issue that is only noticeable if the player deliberately drags the Top Shelf Nectar Rack onto another nectar rack.
Do not redistribute or include with lots.
Many thanks to @peter9g for his invaluable advice.

* The following information shares where to find it in buy-mode, any buffs/moodlets they get from it and what it can be used for!
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
