Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


So now your bookshelves are all filled with clutter, but you have nowhere to put your books? Behold, The Book of Knowledge (echoes)! This book has the capacity of a bookshelf, in the size of a book, to be placed on shelves, desks, tables, end tables, ect.


Just click on the book, select "open Book of Knowledge" and drag and drop books from/ to the sim's inventory for reading. note: The "Put Away" option does not apply to this object. You must drag the book to/from the sim's inventory.

But wait there's more...


It is wrapped in fine high-grade leather in three preset colors: red w/gold text, blue w/gold text, and blue w/o text. It has two recolorable channels (great for personalizing book collections). And that's not all...

Did I mention that they are stackable? That's right, you can have your book collections in a neat stack on a shelf, or a not-so-neat stack on the floor (some other objects can also be placed on top of the book). How high is up to you...

Act now and get The Book of Knowledge for the low price of 45 siml. Found in Surfaces/Storage.

Polys: 36

Updated: 11.7.10
Updated for Late Night. (Ambitions version depreciated)

Updated: 6.6.10
Added interaction to add books from family inventory
Added version updated for Ambitions


Additional Credits:
Special thanks to buzzler, for giving me the final piece I needed to make this work how I wanted.

Thanks to those who suggested I make this.

Thanks to Wes Howe, Inge Jones and PLJones, Ceixari, ChaosMageX, and Delphy for the tools.

I notice that there are skills for toddlers, but toddlers aren't able to click on it and "use" said book. Did I do something wrong? All my files are in the correct places.

I love the idea of this "Book of Knowledge". Unfortunately, though, it's not working for me. I didn't see restrictions when I downloaded it, so I guess to say that I need to know what versions it "won't" work for.

This doesn't work, and I have the latest update to all versions of the extensions.

This doesn't seem to want to work at all in Ambitions - it lies about as an deco ornament - is there a fix?

I love this book! It saves so much space! How hard is it to flag an object as stackable or reduce the space it takes up in terms of game flags so that other objects can fit next to it? (I want to figure out how to get the Book of Skills to fit on the same coffee table as this but that object seems to be flagged as larger so I want to figure out how to change that for my own game).

I hope that made sense.

Where'd you get the mesh for this object? Is it custom or what it in the game?

I ask because I would like a mesh of a stackable book or stackable stack of books to act as the vessel for the education controller sectional of my renovated Chaos Mod.

It's a custom mesh.

thank you, eagerly waiting, but also realize that you have other things you have to do besides catering to us FAN-atics, so take your time and don't stress.
