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.

Kitchen Shelves
Here are two functional appliance shelves to free up valuable counter space and add some variety to your kitchens. Your Sims will reach up for some things (like to grab the coffee pot and open the microwave door) but all other animations are performed centered in front of the shelf at counter height.

  • Pretty and Practical Kitchen Shelf - Surfaces/Shelves ยง200 - 2 subsets
  • KnockOnWood III Kitchen Shelf - Surfaces/Shelves ยง200 - 1 subset

  • 3 Appliance Slots
  • Tiny File Recolors in Maxis Match and Anna's Colors
  • Height Adjustable w/ Apartment Life
  • Base Game Compatible - Can be found under Room Sort/Kitchen/Surfaces if you don't have the shelf category.

Placement and Use: Moveobjects on is required to place over counters (or to intersect any objects) and to place more than one appliance on the shelf.

  • Do not delete recolors in game - In order to have the tiny file sizes (and quick load times as a result) all of the hue recolors share the same grayscale texture template. You can't delete one color in game without deleting them all.
  • Do not rename the files - The meshes need to load before the recolors and the masters need to load before the slaves in order for everything to work properly.

Terms of Use: None.

Polygon Counts:
Shelf-1 680 | Shelf-2 336

SimPE, Milkshape, Photoshop and Maxis.
