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.
Hey Hey!

After I had finished my latest set, my friend Tom and I were talking, and he mentioned he needs to find wallmounted counters somewhere. So I told him I could make him one. Q, being also in the conversation, was nice enough to extract me TS2 mesh that had the wallmounts. So I took the wallmounts, combined those with a a counter top I had made earlier for another never finished set, then resized the top and made a shelf also, and here we are. I have a new tiny set :P

There are two objects, a counter, and a shelf. Both of the objects are wallmounted, and therefore the counter does not have cabinets in it. The counter has the same slots as any EA originals. The shelfs can be moved up and down, and have 3 slots.

Both items have 3 recolourable channels, the top, support, and wall piece. They can be found in buy mode - counters and cabinets. The counter costs 20 and the shelf 10.

You will need to have patch 1.17/2.12/3.8/4.5/5.2/6.0. to be able to shift the shelfs.

I hope you enjoy these!

Polygon Counts:
Counter - 106/316
Counter top - 106/316
Counter corner - 128/380
Shelf - 106/316

Thanks to Tom for making the request.
Q, for extracting the TS2 mesh for me.
Whitey, for helping with S3PE.

if you use sinks on the counter, there will not be any plumbing.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.
