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.

"The Timeless Office Set"
Some time ago I released the "JW Office Set"... I have since then, re-created the entire set. The new "Timeless" set includes a 3 tile desk, filing cabinet, lateral cabinet, chair, clock, painting and bookcase. All items are re-colorable through the book shelf(You Must Have The "Bookcase" In Your Download Folder For The Other Objects To Work). Re-color the two bookcase subsets and you have re-colored the entire set... These objects being so much different and more advanced they have seperate GUIDs then the original set so both can be used...
I would like to thank my friend "Numenor" for his help with the repository and dialog concerning this set... I would also like to thank "RGiles" for his input on the repository idea in which he has utilized in his "Scarborough Cabinet Set".
I have included a re-color in which "Numenor" and I created in testing(the lighter wood image).
The Poly's are with-in limits and the set is extremely resource friendly even with 3D hardware and high detail textures.
The mesh's this time were created to fit together in a seamless fasion to create some interesting set-ups in your game(see below images).
I removed the shadow from the painting, the clone base shadow was not apealing...
I have rebuilt the office desk package so that the chair animation works properly... A special thanks to the users who have tested this and brought it to my attention. Also a thank you to numenr for his dialouge in this matter...
For those who need to re-download it: It contains the same GUID and name so just ovewrite the existing desk package...
Another note: For the bookcase to show and only the bookcase you will need the E.P. installed. If you do not have the E.P. installed you can still use the remaining files as long as the boocase is in your download folder...
*** Added Non E.P. version of the "Bookcase".
*** Added rar file of the complete "Classic" Office set as requested.
UPD-23 July - Gave new GUID to the "Timeless Office" chair it had the "Classic" versions GUID.

I thought I just come and have another look re the other bookcase for the non EP users and yep, there it was. Thank you so much for this, it works fine. No another question, why is the tall filing cabinet sooo expensive. Like a statue?

Hi Jack, hope your life is back to normal. Would it be ok to ask you if you have ever noticed that the tall filing cabinet is 5000 simoleons? Pretty expensive. Wonder what's in there, gold bars? lol
