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.

"Illumutations" - Transformable Multi-Model Shelf with Built-in Lights
by Numenor and Peter_Halland

Tired of wasting an entire table to place a single little flower vase, or a phone?
Illumutations is the answer to your prayers!

It's transformable: change its shape to 1, 2 or 3 shelves in a click! (The shelves must be empty!)
It's illuminated: each shelf has a built-in light that can be set to "always on", "always off" or "automatic"!
It's a space-saver: each "Illumutations" multishelf can host up to SIX objects!
It's usable: the sims can interact with the objects placed on the lowest level!
It's realistic: no one lines up perfectly the ornaments on the shelves... Each object placed on the shelves will have its own unique position and orientation!
It can be placed everywhere: under a window, over a floor stereo, even over a toilet!
It's recolourable: if the many beautiful recolours included in the package aren't enough for you, you can create your own! (Frame and glass are recolourable separately)

The "Illumutations" Multi-shelf works with any game configuration, from the base game to Mansion&Garden (i.e. all existing games).
You can find it in the catalog under "Surfaces / Misc" (available for Community lots, too).

OFB users please read: in order to ensure compatibility with the non-OFB games, this multi-shelf is NOT placed in catalog along with the Maxis shelves. Nevertheless, it CAN be used in your business lots, to display your objects for sale. There are only few limitations, that you should keep in mind:
  • The Multi-shelf can host only small objects that are supposed to be placed on surfaces: objects (even if small) that are supposed to go only on the ground can't be placed on this shelf. For instance, you can place on it craftable flowers, but not a toy xylophone.
  • The Multi-shelf can host Maxis and custom objects: there is no difference (no hack needed).
  • When setting the price of the items, you can't click on the shelf, like you do with the OFB shelves, because this would put for sale the shelf itself

Poly Count - In its full configuration (3 shelves): 1550 Verts / 1928 Faces.

Curio shelf? And oh yes, I'm well aware of that issue of using a whole table for one item. This will come in very handy. Thanks!!!

This is amazing! Thank you Numenor and Peter! I can see so many applications for this, and it will make homes more lifelike to have a bit of clutter around.

If I put too many things on it, will it fall crashing off the wall, just like in real life? Just kidding! This is great - I can't wait to stuff a bunch of things on it. Hmm, wonder how many espresso cups it can hold...

Do you want me to have an heart attack? lol! At first I thought you were actually reporting a break-down!

Hmm, wonder how many espresso cups it can hold...

Cups placed there by the sims: zero; the sims don't put anything on the shelf autonomously; they can only interact with the objects already there.
Cups placed manually by you: six (only the lowest two are actually "cleanable" by the maid).
