This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

I just spent the day learning how to do a new thing! And then I found out it wasn't really necessary. Still, posting anyway because options are nice...

I was very nearly finished with a big business/community/shop set for #themeBusiness when I got annoyed that the plastic OFB corner shelves don't share texture with their straight/main counterpart like the Roedisplay ones do. Actually they do share textures, as in they use the exact same texture images, but they still need separate recolours. Annoying, right? So I dive head-first down the rabbit hole and learn some new stuff to solve that annoyance. Result: Repository technique Default Replacements that slave the corners to the Just Shelves master. With these, any recolours of the Just Shelves will also apply to the corners. No more duplicates needed!

Aaaaand just as I'm about to post this I learn from HugeLunatic that shastakiss has already addressed this and quite a few other object/texture redundancies in a big batch of CEP-extras at Sims2Artists. I'm actually really excited to know about these! And I'm bummed that my fix here may not be needed after all. But I'm proud of me for learning a thing! So imma go ahead and post these anyway, because like I said, options are nice, and whether you prefer to use a CEP-Extra or these default replacements, annoyance-b-gone.

Default Replacements for Just Corner Shelves (§200) and Just More Corner Shelves (§200). Both are found in Surfaces / Shelves and require OFB.
These aren't recolours; they're just a couple of small files that allow the corners to use any recolours you have of Just Shelves (§400).
