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.
***********May 02 2005 **** Major update: Now with animations!!******* see below

Hi Guys,
Would you test this for me please?
Made with SimPE v0.35, Milkshape, Meshtool and UVMapper it is EP ready (not required) with unique (registered) GUID and colour enabled.
Polygon Count:574 (= Low)

This is a modern style wooden magazine rack...complete with magazines.
Choose from 4 different magazine sets and six different wood finishes (see pics)

It can be placed almost anywhere..(except on the mantlepiece... where it would catch fire!!)

It can be found in HOBBIES...and then..ALL(* see below)

Please report any issues...and thanks for testing


UPDATE 2nd May:: Thanks to the amazing Numenor. ..This package has been totally remade by him to inculde animations. I take NO credit for this...this was all his hard work. Thank You are THE man!

If you want to have the new animations you need the new file(s) dated MAY 05.... if you've not bothered then you need not redownload.

The update means that it now appears in HOBBIES/ALL...and you will need to download the new zip file and replace the master file ....(including all the (new) recolour files),

They have the same file names and will simply overwrite your original downloaded files.


Recolours: Please do not post files containing the original mesh. Recolours are fine to post (preferable here in the recolours section). Please pm me before posting recolours- I always reply.

Please do not include this (or any of my other items) in uploaded LOTS. These are BETA objects for you to test...not something to 'inflict' on an unsuspecting LOT downloader. Thanks

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Wow. Simple things can look soooo nice, if they are well done with perfection, as you did here. Very good work. Probable it took some time to get it such perfect?

Thank you Peter....I usually find that the simpler they are...the harder they are to get right!. This took me longer than the curly bamboo!! :confused:

hehe, i thought so. This one is no 37 for you. Hej, you soon can publish your own Boblish-EP.
By the way. Now we are getting a bigger number of object makers over here. And we have learned how to make the meshes. Maybee there is one theme that could be interesting for some of us to work on together. What do you think?
Fillig up a house (very different house i guess) with only our own stuff? The challange would be not to use things we already have created, so everything would be realy special assigned to fit in the project.
