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.

Running out of places to put your stuff? Bookshelves shouldn't be just for books. So I cleared off the Back2School Bookshelf and added 15 slots.

This is not a functioning bookcase, so it doesn't produce books and such. This is now a functioning bookcase. Each shelf has 3 slots; left, middle, and right.

It can be found in Surfaces/Storage and cost 200. Comes in four colors Comes in original bookshelf presets.

Updated 7-8-12:
  • updated to 1.34
  • is now a functioning bookcase

Updated 5-27-10:
  • Edited RSLT to allow larger items
  • allows the use of objects with interactions
  • fixed catalog description

This object was only possible by information shared by Raven Shadow and HugeLunatic, and advancements in the S3PE tool by Peter L. Jones and Inge Jones

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

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.

Great mod, thanks! Good for sims who need a place to put stuff for display other than books.
