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.
Once upon a time I got a message from mswn on tumblr suggesting that I might be interested in something she ran across while wandering around the internet, she thought it might be "right up my alley".. and she was right. Since I tend to be easily distracted and a bit of a wanderer it's taken me a bit of time but it's finally done..

This is a set of 3 pegboards but these are not your father's pegboard! No, these are more modern, more streamlined and way cooler than those pegboards of yesterday.


Each board has shelves and slots and they are made to fit perfectly side-by-side so you can line a whole room with them if you'd like. The set is slaved with Pegboard 1 being the master. The slots? Pegboard 1 has 10 slots, pegboard 2 has 12 slots and the corner pegboard has 18 slots. There are 2 subsets - the pegboard and the shelves - and 6 recolors (EA's Malm woods), the pegboard and shelves are separate packages so you can delete any you might not want in game with no problems.

All can be found in Surfaces>Misc for 100 Simoleons (1 and 2) and 125 Simoleons (the corner). They can be shifted up and down - and that means that you can fit 2 on each wall section if you really, really want to line the walls with pegboards!

For those that might be curious, THIS is the site that mswn pointed me to. Their shelves are shown under "Story". Mine aren't exactly like theirs as it was easier to add the shelves to the pegboard instead of making separate shelf meshes.

Polygon Counts:
Pegboard 1 - 1048
Pegboard 2 - 952
Corner Pegboard - 1422

Additional Credits:
MilkShape, PhotoShop CS2, SimPE, EA for the wood textures used

This is AWESOME. Thank you. Next spring, I see myself lining my workshop with these. Meanwhile, my Sims will be abusing all these slots and shelves.

Neat! Also, sorry if I'm being bothersome, but where did you get all those nice deco things? Not counting the mini bear, the snowman, and the frog, I already have those.

Thanks for looking, commenting and/or downloading guys!! :D

@Hil0
Well. You're really not going to like this answer: Most of the kitchen deco stuff is BillyJean/LeeHee's. A lot of the other things are mine (and quite a bit of it hasn't been released yet). The rest is.. PrincessBliss, OhBehave. Buggybooz - that's really all I know/remember right now and I can not give you links to any of it. I feel bad because I usually know who and where to get stuff, I just used sooooo much stuff this time.

@wolfiebaby
You can't place anything on them at all? No plants, no little sculptures? Nothing at all?
There *are* some objects that won't place on them at all and there isn't anything I can do about that. (Due to how the slots are set up.) But you should be able to place stuff on them.
