Versatile Shelving: Half Shelves & In-between Uprights

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 addition to the Versatile Shelving system allows you to build boxes at any of the 5 shelving levels. (Please note update to Versatile Shelving discussed below) It also includes 5 half-length shelves with 3 slots each to maximize design flexibility.

The objects included here will mix-match with the Versatile Shelves and the Glass Versatile Shelves I uploaded before.

When trying these out in my WA game I noticed that the shadows the shelves cast are very dark and cumulative. For this reason these shelves and uprights have no shadow. They do not cast a shadow on the floor and they do not cast a shadow on the wall. I have updated the Versatile Shelving post to include a download version of the original set which also has no shadows. You can find those here:

These shelves have been tested in my base game with no patches and my WA game which is patched through December. They have three recolorable parts. They will go up against a wall with no cheats. Each piece costs $10 and can be found in Buy/Surfaces/Miscellaneous.

They tile nicely and will not distort patterns applied to them:
