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.
***Major UPDATE*** Now takes colours from original bookcase (including recolours) ********** 29/4/05

Hi Guys,

Would you test this for me please?

Made with SimPE v 0.35, Milkshape and Mesh Tool, it has its OWN unique (registered) GUID ... (so it does not replace the games own version)...it is in addition to it...(so you can have your symetry! :howdy

It is EP ready (though not required).


*****************************************************
UPDATE: This bookcase now draws ALL its colour options from your existing bookcase...including any recolours that you have (or will) download).(see pic 3)

You cannot recolour this....(indeed, you don't have to). It now has NO texture files... it uses the ones from Maxis (or your recolours)

(My apologies to the 810 people who downloaded the original version: This new verson (dated 29/4/05) will simply overwrite your existing download and enable all your existing recolours automatically .)

******************************************************

This is NOT my mesh...it is simply Maxis's mesh ...flipped! ...so the polygon count is the same as Maxis's.

It functions exactly the same as the original, it is the same price..and in the same place in the catalogue. (It should appear next to the game's original.)

OK... no stars for design today...but the people in the thread seemed to want it so much, I thought I'd give it a go...

Please report any issues...and thanks for testing

keep up the great work!


Ok guys....to save anyone else the trouble of pm'ing me to flip the Dresser...you can't... .. because the (inside) clothes and the animations are set to one side, so although I CAN flip the actual dresser (I've just spent an hour doing so!!) ... the clothes 'float' outside the dresser on the oposite side...and your Sim will pull open a non-existing drawer where the 'floating' clothes are.

If anyone out there knows how to fix this...then please pm me and I'll forward you the 'flipped' package file (which has unique registered GUID's) which you can mod...

(My apologies to the 810 people who downloaded the original version


Thanks Bob! I am happy to have different colors now In what concerns myself, you don't have to apologize in any way. You are doing great stuff and I love to see your items in my game. I can't do a proper mesh on my own, so it are genius people like you who make sims2 more playful! So no need to apologize for missing color options! I am just happy to be allowed to download. Keep on with your nice works!

Fantastic! This has been needed since the game came out. I cannot figure out why Maxis neglected this to start with.

What an AMAZING idea. I never really thought that I needed the opposite bookcase until I saw this... now I realize how vital it is. I love the way you placed it on either side of the fireplace too. Classy

Thanx again

I wholeheartedly agree. If I had the money I would erect a statue for you. Hey I have an idee, how about creating one of you for the game? Anyway, thank you, thank you.

I cannot thank you enough! I think it was a major mistake of Maxis not to have provided a flip version. Keep up those good ideas!

It shows up with funky bars in my game- no colors available, either. Do I need to change a file somewhere to make it work?

This is such a good idea, I don't know how many times I've wanted to use this bookcase but couldn't because it would just look too odd...but now I can, thanks to you.

This still doesn't work for me. It shows up black with red stripes in random patterns. Any ideas?

Well yero69- this will be perfect for you then, since it only seems to come in black with red stripes.

That sounds like the bookcase is pulling textures from some other object. Run Clean Installer and see if you've got dupicate ID numbers.
