Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
WHAT THIS MOD DOES
1. Overrides certain decor, electronic, and lighting items to make them fit on shelves and counters. Some items will need to be scaled down in-game to avoid clipping through walls.
2. Basic color swatches added to some items that were missing them.

Make sure to have bb.moveobjects turned on. Without it, some items still will not snap to shelves.

I love this! It always drives me crazy that so many items that should fit, don't fit on shelves, so thanks! :)

I love this! Works great with the Eco living ALT drag. I just wish that we can ALT scale items now... the bracket double size thing makes it frustrating when you want a little bit... Great Mod.

Will this work without the whole list of SP and EP? I mean, is it set up so it WILL work with them, or so it NEEDS them to be ABLE to work at all?

I separated them so that you can use just the packs you have. Should work even if you drop in items you don't have in your game.

Thank you for this! Being able to put up open shelves in a kitchen, but then only being able to place a Kava bowl on them, is irritating! Wishing appliances like the ice cream maker, popcorn maker, etc. could be stored sanely on a shelf too instead of taking up an entire counter block each!

This would be amazing. Drives me crazy that these have to take up space on counters.

This is wonderful and very appreciated! One of my biggest pet peeves is objects that clearly would fit within a certain space cannot be used on appropriate sized-shelving. I don't know if you take requests, but I'll throw this example out there: The "Always Polished Nail Polish" from the base game that is physically a rather small object yet takes up a full-size space. This is a wonderful decorating quality-of-life mod and I'm so grateful to you for it. Thanks again!

are you going to update this further for the newest packs? XOXO either way thank you for this mod!! I love it.

Thanks for the great mod, but I have to ask why you kept unedited files within the mod? As far as I can see you only edit the object catalog line?
Keeping all the other stuff in there will just make the mod more prone to conflicts with other mods or newer patches.
