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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated 27-Oct-09** Fixed Club desk in the HL_base_1TileDesks.rar.

A variety pack of one-tile desks, from Base game up to Apartment Life. Each file is labeled with what EP/SP is required. Each one is a slave to the two-tile version and takes all Maxis/EA plus custom colors. All desks cost one-half the amount of the two-tile one...well, because there half the desk!

I realize some of these have been done, but most that I know of are pay and I do not use pay items so I needed an alternative. I have done all of the desks that I like and use and I have no idea why it has taken me this long to get to this. I have no immediate plans to make more, but who knows.

Each desk has the main slot for computer/homework plus the original secondary slot moved over and to the rear. The Country one has an additional slot added. (...ignore the shadow on the Atomic one...its been fixed...)

The secondary slot also works great for MogHughson's Desk Locator or the UNI Desk Locator. Thanks Cat for reminding me what I forgot to mention.

I have a problem. My one-tile economy desk has disappeared! I glommed these when they were first uploaded, and since then I don't think I've used any item as often as that one, lovely desk. I suspect a GUID conflict, but I am not crashing or generating error reports that reference it (at least, none that I can decipher). All the other desks show and work beautifully. Is there a GUID scanner (maybe a Sim PE tool that I've overlooked?) that works like dupeGuru does for files?

It was about time I download these. So..they have their secondary container slot at their back..and up? That is awesome. So we can put cutter at the far back end, and a computer up front...right?
Great. A belated Thank you, to you.

I think I have the same kind of problem. After installing some more CCs, the desk is still in the catalog, but not showing any recolor, and I cannot buy and place it at all. I deleted some problematic CCs, but the 1-tile economy desk is still unusable.

**Indeed, it conflicted with Michelle's 'Locker Room Counterfeet Desk'. Got the fixed mesh, I just keep my fingers crossed.
