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.
My pal Cmo made a 15 slot bookcase for TS3 (the fretted bookcase) and I wanted one for TS2. So I asked Cmo if I could use his mesh in a TS2 conversion and he said sure. So here it is.

The Fret No More Bookcase



The bookcase has two subsets (shelf and frame) and costs 300 simoleons. It can be found in the hobbies section as it IS a functional bookcase so you might want to put a couple of deco books on there to maintain the illusion

The original TS3 item can be found HERE

Polygon Counts:
polys = 454

Additional Credits:
Cmo for the mesh, the gang on leefish.nl for being encouraging (and wanting the bookcase) S3PE to get the mesh out and SimPE to get the mesh in

Neat, very slotastic, but now I'm curious if it's part of a larger set in TS3. Almost makes me want to convert some stuff. I like having sets of matching furniture.

Does one of the slots line up with where reading sims' grabby hands go, so they're grabbing a book if you put one there?

edit: I fail at finding cmo's TS3 version. Looked at cmo's downloads, cannot find. Is it recent, maybe not uploaded yet?

Cat - I have no idea - I tested the slots in game and made sure the recolours/subsets worked. I would suspect not as most Maxis bookcases have 6 shelves.

Oh, thank you so much! Now I can -sanely- make bookcases look like my own ridiculously clutteriffic ones in real life without losing OMSPs left and right. Fantastic! I'll boot up to test-check this thingy out in a minute.~

Silly question perhaps, but is there any chance of this here shorter version making its way to TS2? ...One can never have enough bookcases. >:3

Why does it have slots on the floor underneath? I can't think of anything to put down there. 0_o It puts things on the floor after the top shelf is full, too.
