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.


I would like to dedicate this upload to Leefish

Back in 2011 with a major amount of hand holding, patience and help from Leefish, her Mirrored Base Game Desks project was my first experience with Milkshape. I have learnt a few things since then so when I read gummilutt's comment "Maybe Leefish will one day decide to do the other maxis desks." I thought I might have a go at mirroring the other Maxis desks myself. Remembering how terrified I was back then I was surprised at how easy it was to do, thank goodness I still had Leefish's Mirror Desk Template.

Thanks to Leefish all the desks have extra slots and I have slaved them all to the original desks, so any recolours you have for the original desks will also recolour these.

NOTE: Due to the fact I stuffed up the slots on the 'The Rollin' Secretary' from Seasons and mustluvcatz is fixing them for me, the Seasons Vroom! Desk and The Rollin' Secretary from McKraken Industries, seen in my screenshot, are not included...they will be coming soon.

These are not base game compatible, please check below to see which EP or SP is required!
