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.
Two functional shelves that match the Maxis RAW series. They are designed to sit flush next to each other and to the wall (when you mix the small and wide ones you will need to use moveobejcts for one of them since they’re a quarter tile apart).

2015-03-06: There is now a mesh override for the original bathroom shelf available here that resizes that shelf to the size of the small one (and also adds some slots to it).




All textures are referenced from the RAW Bathroom Shelf so they match exactly; any overrides you have for that will work for these as well. The wide shelf has 40 slots (8 for mid-sized items, the rest for small ones), the small one 20; they are spaced a little uneven on purpose because my sims are not the kind who would line up stuff in a shelf with a ruler.

Both are in the Deco > Misc section; the small shelf costs 245§ and the large one 425§ (i.e. a little cheaper than the bathroom shelf which is already filled with stuff). Nine colour options each, same as the bathroom shelf.

I love your placement stuff! Why didn't EA already made shelves this way without deco or with many slots? Thanks for your hard work, fixing and ideas.

This is awesome! Really! But I want to make a new recolor on this...tho, I can't seem to export the texture because... there's no texture? Please, help. I don't know if it's because we're not allowed to recolor?

This is referencing the textures from the bath shelf -- for recolouring, you need to export from there. I would also suggest you recolour the bath shelf and reference the textures, because that way you'll have more matching items (import a random texture, give it the same instance ID as your recoloured bath shelf texture -- that'll produce the material definitions you need -- and delete it again afterwards). Please post in Create if you have more questions on that (there it will be more useful than buried in a random download thread).

I am somewhat shelf obsessed at the moment due to a large supply of frogs and crystals and no-where to store them. Thanks a lot for these.

These are lovely, but I do have a problem that I'm not sure if it's my fault or some general error that might need to be looked at When I've placed the shelf and try to change texture with the design tool, the shelf "disappears" when I hover over another texture, and if I click it (as if to choose that texture), I just get the error message "script call failed". It's not a real game breaker or anything, I can still pick different textures when I buy a new shelf, but I can't redesign the old ones, apparently.

EDIT: Apparently the same thing is going on with a bunch of other CC as well, at least in my game, so I'm learning towards it being an error on my end.

Or EA's. Blaming EA is always good, because they've always done something to deserve it! :D

See this thread over at EA for the current state of the Script Call Failed error thing. This is a general issue with CC objects.

Thanks!
Have you ever considered making a version of this that is half the height (2 or 3 shelves only)? It would work great for stores in Get To Work.

I think I have almost all of your creations, but a very special thanks for this one. Now my frog, fossil and crystal collections are neatly arranged thanks to your amazing shelf. thank you so much for this good idea and fine realisation.

These shelves need to be updated.. i've used them to sell items with GTW but my sims have issue when trying to buy something on these shelves. It works well with other shelves (from the game or from other creators)
